Dr. Robbins, I'm getting frustrated trying to follow the approaches I read about on the ACN website. It seems like there are so many different things I should be trying.
What are the most important things to start with? My child is 7 and has had tics for 2 years. Boy--good student. I am a full time working mom (like most mothers, I guess) and I can't try everything! What should I do first?? Help!

Julie :(

You don't have to do anything except trying to be more observant of environmental situations that may make things better or worse. You are already doing something important by gaining information from others who have been in similar situations. Eventually you might want to try some nutritional supplements or eliminating some foods or making environmental changes that are appropriate for your situation. Try one thing at a time . Eventually if you find that foods , weather changes , molds, chemical smells or pollens are triggers of tics, allergy testing and treatment might be considered.
