I have a 5-year-old son named Caleb, and he was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (spectrum of autism), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), and ADHD.

In Jan of 2012 we started using therapeutic-grade essential oils on Caleb. We noticed a change the first night I applied Valor essential oil blend on him. Thirty minutes later he asked me to sing to him before bed; it was the first time in 3 years. That is when I decided to take this to the next level and ordered supplements and oils that would help reverse all diagnoses.

We started off with Peace & Calming, Vetiver, Valor, Lavender, Citrus Fresh, and Clarity. We used these oils for the first 1.5 months and noticed a huge change. So we added six more oils so we could rotate them: Cedarwood, Release, Juva Cleanse, Brain Power, Sacred Frankincense, and Frankincense. Then we added Sulfurzyme and ImmuPro.

We had been doing this for a total of 3 months when I had a second speech assessment done. His first assessment he was graded low-average. He was now after only 3 months graded above average for speech, and we are just waiting to have another diagnosis done to show all labels/diagnoses have been reversed.

How we applied and used the oils:

Peace & Calming we diffuse every night (about 8 to 10 drops) with 1/2 to 1 ImmuPro about 30 minutes before bed. We give him 1/2 tsp of Sulfurzyme 2 to 3 times a day. We apply six of the oils anywhere from 3 to 4 times a day -- when he wakes up, late morning, mid afternoon, and bedtime.

Caleb has told me where he likes his oils, so this is his protocol:

1. Vetiver, Frankincense, and Sacred Frankincense on the very top of his spine rubbed upwards.

2. Valor, Brain Power, and Cedarwood on his spine and ears (I always tickle the spine upwards first when applying oils to the spine).

3. Lavender and Release rubbed on his chest.

4. Citrus Fresh, Brain Power, Clarity, Frankincense, Sacred Frankincense, and Juva Cleanse on his feet (especially the right big toe). He is always up for a foot massage.

Therapeutic-grade essential oils and products have not only given us a toxic-free environment, but they have also given us our son back... in only a few short months. My son would not go a day without his essential oils, and he makes sure that he has them with him at all times. We finally have peace back in our lives, and we thought that day would never come. A thanks also goes to Terry T. who showed us the way!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1."The results indicate that children's shared attention behaviors increased during aromatherapy massage and that other aspects of their behavior also changed over the course of the research. Family involvement in the study enabled these changes to be transferred from school to home.... Steve Solomons explores the implications of his research for new teaching and learning opportunities for children with autistic spectrum disorders and severe learning difficulties."Link
2.In nine studies, Vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) has shown effectiveness for arteriosclerosis, autism, Bells palsy, chemotherapy-induced toxicity, degenerative disc disease, detox, muscle wasting, muscular dystrophy, neuroblastoma, neuroprotection, oxidative stress, and spinal stenosis.Link
