Whether you’re dealing with Tourette syndrome, a chronic tic disorder, or obsessive compulsive disorder, the ideal goal is to get to the root of the problem. What underlying imbalances might be causing the symptoms of one or more of these conditions?
Dr. Sidney Baker, a researcher for autism, often pointed out that when looking at a disorder, it is helpful to consider what the individual might be getting too much of, or what that person is getting too little of. Either situation results in an imbalance, and the ideal therapy can be developed if the exact imbalance can be identified.
Dr. William Shaw of Great Plains Laboratory notes that clinical studies indicate people with a chronic tic disorder, Tourette syndrome, or obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) are also predisposed to having physical problems that often co-exist along with the disorder. These potential co-existing conditions include allergy, anxiety, attention deficit disorder, autoimmune disease, chronic pain, cognitive difficulty, eating disorder, headaches and migraines, hyperactivity, inflammation, poor immunity, and restless leg syndrome.
Dr. Shaw advises that clinical studies have shown the physical conditions associated with Tourette’s, a chronic tic disorder, or OCD are also associated with oxidative stress, mineral deficiency, and microbial imbalance.
