My 8 yr. old son has OCD. I want to try a natural approach to help him. I have researched and have found that there can be several things can be a cause for OCD. Parasites, heavy metal posioning (mercury in particular), poor diet and poor vitamin and mineral absorbsion. In summary, what I would like to do is to do a parasite cleanse, heavy metal cleanse (clay bath, Chlorophyll and lemon drink, I don't know exactly what kind of heavy metal cleanse to do yet - any suggestions are certainly welcomed), liver cleanse, etc.... What our family has changed so far is we have gone to mostly organic fruits and vegetables, cut out dairy, drink organic soy and rice milk, filter all of our water in the house, even the showers, stopped eating red meat, cut out artifical sweetners, and extremely cut down on the Sugar intake by about 85% from what it used to be. Here is my question. I have NO IDEA what to do 1st. A parasite cleanse, a colon cleanse, a liver cleanse, heavy metal cleanse???????? What? I am so confused at what to do, how to do it and in which order. Do I use a parasite cleanse that I buy or do I make my own? I read that wormwood is dangerous for children but some of the children's parasite cleanses that I can buy have that as an ingredient. Does anybody have any specific ideas and/or information that could help me do the right thing for him. I want to be safe and go slowly so as not to make him sick. ANY suggestions?????? Thank you in advance!

I'm not sure if what I have classifies as OCD, but I will mention it anyway. I have mercury and lead toxicity, and big yeast problems. I became seriously ill when a doctor gave me a chelating agent (Alpha Lipoic Acid) when I still had my fillings in. It pulled the metal from my fillings through my body. One of the lessor symptoms I got was an obsession with music. I would think of a song, and would not be able to get it out of my head, unless I replaced it with something else. It didn't even have to be a song, it could be a commercial or TV theme song, alot of them are very obnoxious. I know it sounds funny, but in reality it is very annoying.
Over time, I noticed that when I eliminate sugar, and treat for yeast, this symptom is very much improved. I take a probiotic, acidophilus from Enzymatic Therapy, and oil of oregano. Enemas also help when symptoms are bad. For some reason, there is a relationship between heavy metals and yeast. I believe the yeast secretes neurological toxins, both when it is growing, and when it is being killed. So you want to go slowly and use enemas when symptoms are bad. I do both water and coffee. I also get numbness and tingling, and circulatory problems.
I would avoid the soy milk, soy is not good for the thyroid gland. The other things you are doing are very good. Another suggestion is to avoid gluten (bread and pasta). Avoid anything from the sea, including fish oil and seaweed, unless you are sure it is mercury free.
