Sorry it took me awhile to respond. We were out of town. I recommend to try Mary Reeds protocol. She helps those with OCD for free as paying it forward after it helping with her own challenge. We have tried everything, I mean everything under the sun for our son (14 years old) for at least the past 8 years plus. This is the first thing that has actually made a difference. We just visited family and they commented on the difference they could see. We had already been seeing a local Holistic doc - so I took Marys recommendations and discussed with him. He prescribed supplements that are in line with what Mary said. (they are not all herbal as she recommends - so less pills to take (about 10 twice a day) but doing same thing). We started to see some change in a few weeks. He has been on the protocol for almost 3 months. That is about when you are expected to see a difference. It is a challenge to get him to drink enough water, exercise and always eat well - so if you can do those things you may see more changes and quicker.
