Treatment of acute infection in children

This paper was presented on 30. January at the online conference Autopathy 2021

Hello, dear listeners. First of all, I would like to thank Mr. Cehovsky for the invitation to this conference. I am glad to be able to participate with my contribution.

My paper this year will not be long. Not much has changed since 2019, when I spoke at a conference in Prague about the self-treatment of tinnitus and the use of autopathy following vaccination of grandchildren, its use for colds, injuries and also my daughter’s allergy.

We continue to use autopathy in the family for acute problems, to manage vaccinations and to calm the psyche. Sometimes autopathy is the main treatment and sometimes part of alternative procedures, where we also use herbs or urine therapy.

Last summer, my daughter and I have gained a newer and surprising experience with autopathy in the treatment of her children’s acute intestinal disease, which they both got at the same time. I will only mention that in the summer of 2020 the age of the children was: the boy 4,5 years and the girl 2,5 years. One Monday in July, I arrived at my daughter’s house for a few days’ visit. I learned already in the car that my grandson was vomiting in the morning. But all day long, both children were active, cheerful and at ease. It all started in the early evening on Monday.

Monday (Day 1): The boy’s temperature began to rise around 5 p.m. He had a headache, started to feel ill and complained of a headache. For this my daughter gave him Nurofen and we put both children to sleep. However, my grandson did not fall asleep and had a stomach ache.

At 9 p.m. he already had a fever of 39,4°C, diarrhoea and he vomited. He got a cold wrap on his legs, but we did not manage to reduce the fever significantly. Furthermore, at night, my granddaughter joined him. Again, a high fever over 39°C, vomiting, abdominal pain, watery diarrhea, and so it went on with both children until the morning. Administration of fluids was usually followed by severe and immediate vomiting. We also considered calling an emergency medical help. So far, we had no idea what was going on, whether they had eaten something or what could have infected them both.

Tuesday (Day 2): It was only in the morning that we managed to make autopathy for both children – boiled saliva and breath 3 l (BSB). Over the next three hours, their condition improved significantly. The children slept a little, the vomiting stopped, and the temperature of both had decreased to near normal.

At around noon, my granddaughter was completely without elevated temperature. However, the diarrhea remained. To be sure and to ascertain the cause, we took the children to the district doctor, where they took rectal swabs and sent them to the laboratory.

I was worried it was salmonella, but no one else in the family had any problems. My daughter and I have excluded food as a cause, because the children ate nothing that could have provoked such reactions.

The only explanation at that time was a recent bath in a natural reservoir, where during the games, both children managed to drink some of the water.

Wednesday (Day 3): The children started to recover quickly and were almost fine.

Thursday (Day 4): The health condition of the children was already without signs of illness, only the stool was still thinner.

Friday (Day 5): In the morning contact with the doctor, results of tests from the laboratory have shown in both children the presence of campylobacter, which causes acute diarrhoeal disease.

Instructions from the doctor: Isolation, increased drinking regime to prevent dehydration and loss of minerals and a strict diet are necessary for the duration of the symptoms of the disease. Check up at the doctor follows in 4 weeks. During the time when tests remain positive, the children cannot join the collective and stricter hygienic measures have to be upheld.

Subsequently someone called from the Hygiene Center, where they searched for the cause of the infection reported to them by the laboratory. Infection through food was not confirmed and so the water in the natural reservoir was considered to be the cause. According to the information from the Hygiene Center, the treatment and positive swab test results usually last 4-6 weeks.

Immediately after having received this information, my daughter returned to autopathy.

She returned to 1,5 l of BSB for both children, even though the children were already healthy. And she continued with autopathy daily.

Saturday (6th day) – BSB 1,5 l.

Sunday (Day 7) – BSB 3 l.

Day 8 – BSB 3 l.

Day 9 – BSB 3 l.

Day 10 – pause in autopathy.

Day 11 – BSB 4,5 l. End of application of autopathic preparation.

My daughter requested additional control smears, which to our surprise were already negative.

We did not believe our eyes then, the children had negative smears fifteen days after the identification of the cause of the disease. And this only thanks to autopathy.

Summary: The first dose of autopathy (BSB 3 l), which was applied on Tuesday, i.e., on the 2nd day after the onset of symptoms of the disease, reduced the fever in both children and stopped the vomiting. However, it did not completely stop the diarrhea, which gradually resolved spontaneously within next two days. Overall, this first administration of autopathy contributed to the rapid recovery and disappearance of almost all symptoms.

Additional doses of autopathy (see above) were used only after the results from the laboratory, specifically after the detection of campylobacteriosis. At that time, the children had already normal temperature and, apart from thinner stools, they looked healthy and also felt that way.

Compared to the expected recovery time of 4 to 6 weeks, autopathy has enabled a much more rapid return to full health in both children, which was evidenced by the final results from the laboratory.


Webinars introducing to the basics of autopathy are organised in English for international therapists, medical practitioners and persons interested in self-healing.
