I specialise in homeopathic detoxing of substances that may have contributed to long term issues in children, especially in children somewhere on the spectrum.
How did this Formula Milk study come about?
One thing that kept coming up in consultations with patients is that symptoms would often start on giving formula milk. The children would get colicky, they wouldn’t sleep, they had a variety of gut and stool issues stemming back to starting formula.
As this issue was so common , I looked in pharmacies worldwide for a homeopathic detox version of formula milk. I couldn’t locate any. I wondered how this could be, as it is such a commonly used substance which appeared to be affecting so many children.
Helios pharmacy helped us to create Formula Milk Powder in 30c, 200c, 1m and 10m potencies. Huge thanks go to Helios, without whom this paper would not be published.
The findings from this study are hugely significant for the homeopathic detox community. I would like to share the results in detail which were compiled by my colleague Grainne Flanagan (who is on my working team) and myself.
Start of the study
Before the study, we asked all the 30 participants (babies to adults) to rate a 0-10 scale of 34 possible symptoms we believed were key triggers from exposure to milk formula. These choices were made from the knowledge of previous consultations where formula milk was identified as a trigger for symptoms.
None of the participants knew what they were detoxing until the end of the trial. We used each potency twice a week.
Extra supports were sent to each participant. These were Lycopodium 6c to alleviate physical distress in any stomach symptoms arising during detox, and Rose Quartz 6c for emotional support. These were only required by 15% of patients. We chose these at 6c so they would not interfere with the detox potencies.

The major headlines of the results
It is not surprising to see the impact on the gut in this trial.
We believe that milk formula is a major contributor to disturbance of the gut.
We’d also like to highlight the large positive impact on sleep, concentration and anxiety.
These 3 issues are often the result of thyroid / adrenal / hormonal issues. These issues are very common in children on the autism spectrum. They are my patients who this protocol was ultimately created for.
Some quotes from the study
If you have a child on the autism spectrum (diagnosed or not) or have a child with several of these symptoms, and this post resonates with you, book a Formula Milk Detox program with myself and Grainne Flanagan on my team
We have already begun to implement this in our practice and have our own unique support remedy combination.
We look forward to welcoming you on board with us. Click below to book a detox program consultation for your child or to find out more information.
Please note that when we look at your child’s history, we may see a different detox is more vital to do first before the Formula Milk one. Our aim is to heal your child’s issues based on our knowledge and experience.
As a side note to patients, I know this post will provoke emotional reactions in some people. Grainne and I have no personal opinions on the use of formula milk. We did not create this trial to provoke arguments for or against the substance. Formula does not create issues for all children. This trial was created in order to help and heal those children who have been more susceptible to its effects.
As a side note for homeopaths : a combination of 3 common formula milk powders were used in making the remedy. We hope that you will use this remedy in your practices and help to heal many children all over the world with their issues. Please contact Helios UK to purchase the remedy.
