Eli was diagnosed with Tourette syndrome in February 2011, at age 7. Tammy Jackson wrote: “I sure wish I had discovered your ACN Latitudes website earlier! I had to find answers for my son on my own, but I now know how much diet and the environment can affect tics.” Tammy is a first grade teacher with a specialist’s degree in education, and she has made tremendous progress in discovering triggers for Eli’s tics.
Eli was in kindergarten when we first noticed eye-rolling. It was right after the school winter holiday break, and a month before his sixth birthday. Not knowing any better, we would tell him: “Stop doing that with your eyes!”
