the doctors has prescribed him with "oppositional defiance disorder". Besides for making his parents and everyone else happy that they can now "know" what the "problem" is- they have prescribed him with valproic acid- 1 teaspoon twice daily. It's generally prescribed for ppl with severe depression, bi-polar, schizophrenia, or epilepsy.
I wanted to contribute with my thoughts, even though I am not an expert at all in these matters. I hope others who know more will add their thoughts.
Well, in my view I would say valproic acid is very toxic: almost a poison. This has been established even from the medical point of view. Among other things, it will affect the functioning of the boy's liver. There is a correlation between the liver and Jupiter, because of the role of the liver in general assimilation and metabolism. Causing this type of damage to the liver will potentially affect his capacity to interpret phenomena, his ability to see things clearly ("the liver flourishes in the eyes"), and his ability to process emotions and rage in general. His liver is quite strong, though it is also quite sensitive (the natal oppositions of Neptune and Uranus to his Jupiter). It will also affect his overall vitality (Sun). Valproic acid can also affect the pancreas. It would also affect his immune system, because it will increase the level of internal toxicity (the Jupiter/Neptune opposition).
If he is finally given this type of medication by the parents, or almost any other type of psychiatric medication, it would be very convenient for the boy to work with some plants serving to detoxify and protect the liver. It he is given valproic acid, I think this plant should be very specific, because the interactions of valproic acid with many other substances are very complicated.
It is a pity that most people believe this type of diagnosis such as ODD mean something. They are pure shit even from the point of view of logics. In reality they mean nothing, because they only imply an statistical description of misunderstood forms of behavior they want to control and repress, and have zero connection to any causal factor. You know this.
I look forward to see what others will say about your question.
