No, though I am glad she is. I've heard of people responding positively to all kinds of things, some of which make some sense, some none, some seem downright outlandish.
Presuming the response must mean it is detoxing is like presuming aspirin cures arthritis because you stop hurting when you take it.
I will note that a lot of other non-curative interventions also lead to great improvement - and to parents foolishly ruining their child's life by failing to correct the underlying problem in favor of the band-aid that must be applied every day until the band-aid doesn't stick any more (e.g. due to the kid growing up and being rebellious). E. g. the GFCF diet, and the catastrophes that have befallen a lot of the children put on it 15 or so years ago and not chelated.
I only discourage people from doing things that are actively harmful. Anything not recognizably harmful that seems to help is fair game. The information I've run across is ambiguous as to whether IMD has ALA or R_ALA in it. If so it is harmful if not used on a 3 hour chelation schedule and should be avoided. If it does not have ALA (or R-ALA) then it's fine to use if you want to.
Just keep clear in your head you aren't detoxing anything with it so that later when progress stops far short of where you'd like it to be you'll know what to do (ALA chelation) and not subject your daughter to a bunch of unnecessary and expensive therapies. At least keep clear in your head I said this even if you don't believe me know. You'll save yourself a lot of grief and expense later if you do.
