RX-Alum 30, one pill dissolved in 4oz of water, 1tsp/day, 5 successions before each dose.

This was a very good case of lifelong constipation in a Autistic child, many are not this easy to solve I find as there are few indicators after extensive case taking to prescribe efficiently on. This is still only 5 days out, but changes can not be denied and the parents are extremely happy. The urination while staring for stool or during constipation where the keys to the case. I suspect the difficult swallowing may improve also but time will tell. All cases are not this easy as I do have many difficult cases that take months to find the correct medicine and many I still do fail on, but it is nice to see some clear cases once and a while that resolve so easily under homeopathy. I have omitted the rest of the case notes that were not relevant to the Chief complaint.

I hope this was helpful. I have learned a lot from a handful of great Dr here that share their cases regularly. So thank you to them.
