9 year-old boy with anxiety & OCD tendancies

My 9 year-old son has been showing signs of anxiety and OCD for a couple of years and it seems to be getting worse.

We started noticing his compulsions I think in grade one. One period of time it was a compulsive cough, another time throat clearing. Than nose clearing (snorting). Now facial expressions...eye crossing. Twisting his head to one side. Stressing the muscles in his neck. It seems like if its not one thing, it's another.

His anxiety, we believe, was triggered by a tornado that happened close to home a couple years ago. It was close enough to home, and the weather strong enough that it petrified him. He's at the point now where we've had to restrict his access to the weather network so we can limit the panic. If it rains, he's terrified there might be thunder. If there's thunder and/or lighting, that's it. It's over! High stress, curled up into a ball with his head covered. I've had to go to the school to sit with him in a corner. He's even missed school because of a thunder storm. He used to be absolutely fascinated by storms. But since that day, it's gotten progressively worse.

This has lead to other anxiety. He won't go into a room by himself. He also won't plug or unplug anything from an electrical outlet (this was triggered by another incident around the time of the tornado where sparks flew from an outlet). We thought by now, he'd be over it. We've tried to talk through it but to no avail.

He's quite sensitive. If things don't go his way, he starts crying almost immediately. And the smallest things trigger this reaction.

I'm wondering if there even is a homeopathic remedy that could help calm him down? We're working on meditation and breathing techniques, as well as making some changes to his diet. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Thank you :)

My son is a fit little kid. Average height and weight for his age. Dirty blond hair and light skin. Light brown eyes, an upturned nose and a big big smile! Very snuggly and affectionate. He talks all the time about how he wishes it were always winter, because there's no thunder storms in the winter :)

As for foods he is incredibly picky. Creature of habit. Loves to have a toasted whole grain apple cinnamon pita for breakfast with earth balance. He loves peanut butter sandwiches. Eats cucumbers and orange peppers raw. Loves them a lot so I feed him these 2-3 times a day. He likes brown rice pasta in tomato sauce or tossed with earth balance. Weigned him off milk almost completely. Does not like the texture of chicken or steak. The flesh bugs him. He does however, like it if it's processed into a chicken finger or burger/meat sauce or meatballs. He drinks only water. Hates juice, not a fan of fruit except for royal gala apples. Loves fish and chips, hamburgers or pizza if it's a treat night. I've unsuccessfully attempted increasing his omega 3 intake simply because of taste. Im able to sneak chia and/or flax into pancakes for him. He loves granola bars. He'll have a couple a day, organic cocoa and coconut bars.

Does that help?!

Please give him Sulphur 200 one dose in the morning.
Observe for 7 days.
Do not give him anything sour to eat or drink as that may antidote medicine.

Thank you so much :)

His multi vitamin is orange flavoured so mildly tart. Shall I avoid this then too for 7 days?
 
lvogel22 4 years ago
Yes. Avoid all sour things.

It has been 7 days since I gave my son the suggested remedy. I have noticed no change in his anxiety or fears, but it appears one of his compulsions (to stretch and scratch his neck because it feels "itchy" on the inside) seems to be worse these past few days. Please advise of next steps. Thank you kindly :)
 
lvogel22 4 years ago
Ok. Now give one dose Arsenicum album 200.
 
telescope 4 years ago
Thank you! Shall I still have him avoid sour things?
 
lvogel22 4 years ago
Yes. For some more time.

Good morning!

It has been 9 days since I gave my son Arsenicum album 200. I noticed a very subtle decrease in his anxieties and fears. His compulsions seem to have elevated again in the past 2 days.

Thank you :)

Please repeat Ars album.

My son is doing awesome :)

While he is still certainly showing his compulsions, we've noticed a marked improvement in his anxiety :)
Shall I continue on with the Arsenicum Album 200?
 
lvogel22 3 years ago
You need to give 20 days at least for 200 potency to work.

An update on my son...

It has been a few weeks since his last dose of arsenicum album. His fears and anxieties are now very minimal, so thank you for that! His compulsions are still pretty evident though; stressing of the neck muscles, eyes, jaw, etc.
 
lvogel22 3 years ago
Please give him one dose Arsenicum album 1m.

An update...

We are just under a month since the dose of Arsenicum Album 1M. We definitely noticed a decrease in his compulsions, but have seen them creep back out these past 4-5 days. Anxiety is barely noticeable.

Thank you :)

Your son is responding well to arsenicum album . Please give him another dose arsenicum album 1m.
 
telescope 3 years ago
Good afternoon!

Wondering if I should give my son another dose? We have noticed over the past 7 or 8 days that his compulsions have re-appeared out of the blue?
 
lvogel22 3 years ago
Yes. Give another dose. Meanwhile collect Arsenicum album 10m.
 
telescope 3 years ago
I gave him the arsenicum album 1M son Sunday as suggested. No change since then. I have also picked up the 10M today. Shall I give him one dose? Also confirming that 1 dose is 3 pellets? Thank you :)
 
lvogel22 3 years ago
Do not give 10m right now..Do you have Sulphur 30 or 200 with you?
 
telescope 3 years ago
Yes, I have sulphur 200. I can pick up 30 if needed no problem.
 
lvogel22 3 years ago
Give one dose Sulphur 200.
 
telescope 3 years ago
Ok - and just making sure - 3 pellets = 1 dose?
I read three on here but at my health store they said 2?!
