  1. My son has a reaction to Red 40. He is outta control and extremly hyper and physical when he has a little tiny bit. My question, maybe a stupid one..... I noticed today that he has some Spiderman temporary tattoos that are made with Red 40 and Blue dyes, by putting these on his skin would/should this cause the same reaction as him eating it? He's been crazy today, and I can't figure out if he's just having an off day or maybe we should "lose" the tatoos even though eh loves them so. Any thoughts? I'm extremly careful to not allow him to eat it, and everyone he is with has also been brief
  2. That's interesting Chemar that your son has the same type of reaction to the pollen. I'm starting to think that is a main problem. I'm definately cutting it out today to see if it helps. I just took an epsom salt bath about 3 hours ago, it does help. But, it's so hard for me to make time for them. I've never been consistant taking them, Just the mag. suppliments. Maybe I'll also try to take one 3 or 4 days a week for a month and see if the extra mag. helps cut the issue too. I went through the list of triggers again, and some I have no contact with and other's on a daily basis. It'll
  3. I forgot to add, so am I right in the assumption that tics can increase with exposure to air borne allergens as well? I don't know why I assumed it had to be an ingetsted allergen.
  4. Thanks for the ideas Faith, I'm definately going to stop the pollen and see what happens. I just really want to take it, much easier than honey and seems to have tons of health benefits, plus maybe I'm crazy, but I really do think it helps keep my energy up during the day. I try to stay away from too much caffeine becuase of the increase in tics, but I'm just so exhausted with a 3 yo and working, that I do drink some iced tea and coffee on rough days. The pollen seemed to help keep me energized without the caffein(maybe a placebo effect, I read it was supposed to help with energy ) Cu
  5. female, 30 horriable on fish oil, great with flaxseed
  6. Well, hum, I don't have much time anymore to post on here, but I do spend some time reading. I have TS, self diagnosed, only becuase I feel like I can't talk to my doctor about it, he laughed at me when I round about brought it up, and don't seem to be near any alternative dr.s to go to. My problem is, I've went into business for myself, after being a stay at home mom for 3 years. Now, (I'm assuming) with the added stress my tics are getting worse. I am on suppliments, (I can list if anyone would like to know) which did seem to help quite a bit before. I have been on the same doses for a
  7. I just received my first online order of supliments (Thanks for sharing hte site Chemar!) Now, I was reading through the catalog they sent and stumbled across something called Gaba 500mg. I dont' remember seeing this as a suppliment in regards to TS. But, I do remember people mentioning it for OCD or ADHD. The blurb about the product says this: "GABA is an amino acid related compound that's important for optimum cognitive function and nervous system support. It is an inhibitory neurotransmitter, whic means it regulates neuron activity in the brain and keeps nerve cells from over-firing,
  8. hum, I'd be curious to know more! If you can think where you read that (not that I don't believe you personally) I'd like to find out. Maybe I should try pulling all my air freshners just to see. Another quick question, I use wickless candles, with no smoke but a heated tray heats the wax to release the fragrance. Have you heard anything about those? Is it the smoke that bothers the TS or the actual fragrance.
  9. I checked out the links. I suppliments I have are from NOW (purchased at a health food store), but htey are all seperate. Only thing, the first link looks to be a good choice, but there is no borage oil, but there is balanced omegas. so, for TS do I really need specifically borage oil, or just a balance of 3-6-9? And Geez this site sure is alot cheaper than what I pay in the store for my stuff! Does anyone know is it good quality~ not expired products?
  10. OK, I normally take an evening primrose/borage/flax combo pill. I went to the health food store today to purchase my next bottle and it has been discontinued. THey don't offer anything else in a combo form. So, I guess I have to start taking them seperately. So, I purchased a 1000 mg flax oil, (take 3 daily) 1050 mg borage oil and 1300 evening primrose. Now, I don't remember my last bottle exactly, but I'm thinking it had approx. 1500 mg total of all 3 mixed. SO, I'm going to be taking alot more mg now, will that make any difference? Also, I was doing research as to the daily doses for
  11. CP, just curious why did you throw out all your candles? Is it something to do with TS? Does the scent or smoke cause more tics? If it is the scent~ what about plug in air freshners? I've never heard this before, but I have candles and air freshners everywhere and have TS!
  12. I'm sorry I can't help. but, I am curious to know an answer. I take calcium in the morning, and mag at night. I've heard mag promotes sleep and I don't like taking all pills at once, so I switched it to night. but, I do take Epsom baths during the day.
  13. So, looking at that info is inositol not for TS? It seems to be for ocd, doesn't have TS listed.
  14. I'm sure there are studies that show this problem. I actually did have an epideral during the birth of my son, and exclusively breastfed for the first 6 months, now he is 18 months old and I am still breastfeeding him during the night wakings. We didn't have any problems during the first few weeks with nursing at all. Only problems began when he started to get teeth
  15. What in lehman's terms are lecithin and inositol? I have been reading about htem, clicking on links and trying to figure it out, but can't seem to get it. I do not take them currently, but have been researching that they are helpful with TS. I was thinking of adding them, but not sure what the heck I'm putting into my body first?!! Can anyone explain, what they are, and what they do, simply for me?
