Vitamin D Deficiency & Tourette's
kellarlln posted a topic in Tourette Syndrome and TicsDoes anyone know of any research being done into a correlation of increased tics in Vitamin D Deficiency?
Once my son (age 11) has the appliance he will need to go back in for frequent adjustments. that's a given. with normal growth & development the alignment will be off, the musculature will also change, esp when there is a prosthesis in place (in growth or as an adult). fyi- my son's tics are nearly identical to the young man in Dr Stack's #1 video.
tmj New treatment for Touretts..REAL?
kellarlln replied to NEWARK's topic in Tourette Syndrome and TicsI am convinced in the Sims-Stack therapy. I saw the videos on youtube & tried by having my 11 year old son bite down on a wooden spoon & the tics nearly disappeared (he had 1 the entire time the spoon was in his mouth). as a nurse, I understand the research (that has been published by CRANIO). the last thing I want my son to be taking are psychotropics (i.e. I'm a former psych nurse) but we will have to wait awhile longer for treatment (no health-dental insurance).
I am thoroughly convinced in the Sims/Stack appliance (the neurocranio vertical distractor). I had my 11 year old son bite down on a wooden spoon & to my surprise it worked! he went from constant tics to less than 1 when the spoon was in his mouth. as a nurse I understand the research (which has been published in CRANIO and I believe there is a citation in NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health) as well. The last thing I want my 11 year old son on is psychotropics, especially in light of an alternative therapy for Tourette's but we have to wait a while longer for the appliance (no medical-dental insurance).
