18 year old son having psychosis’s

Hello, My son was diagnosed at 3 with high functioning aspergers now called asd / autism spectrum disorder. I have always treated him all natural and many therapies for social and executive functioning. He has grown and matured in these modalities tremendously.

That being said he has developed debilitating ocd/ anxiety and ruminating thoughts with schizophrenic tendencies. I do not want to put him on benzodiazepines so I am going to start your supplement program with 100mg of your progesterone cream each day. I pray this is the answer from God.

If you have more to add or any ideas for me to consider I would appreciate it. I will keep you updated in a couple months of treatment. I am hopeful and a bit apprehensive to give my son progesterone but benzodiazepines are definitely way more scary.

Thank you for all you do !

You must be incredibly stressed! I am so sorry. I also recommend you check out the Facebook group Magnesium Advocacy. Might be worth you asking questions there too.
I wish you every success with your son’s health. X

Hi Mindy

I agree with you regarding Benzo drugs they really are terrible and so difficult to wean off. 100mg Natpro is a good start, you may need to increase this amount, but see how you go on that. It does take time. Please be aware of Estrogen Dominance symptoms that he may experience when first using progesterone.

Vitamin D3 is very important and helps with autism, it's vital that you give him D3, a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone. Nothing less than 5,000iu's per day is needed. Optimal range is between 70-100ng/ml. Magnesium and vitamin K2 with no soy are important co-factors needed when taking vitamin D3.

All the best and I hope that your son improves.
