  1. My daughter was young age 2 when we notice the tics starting. Back then I had no computer to research about them. Doctors wanted her on drugs and I was totally against that. I really felt like it was all about food. Latitudes was a pamphlet back then and it was just a bunch of Mother's talking about things they were trying to do to make the tics better. My daughter had 5 major upper body tics for years...it took me 12 years to figure out what foods were causing her tics. She is 33 now with 4 kids and is fine. Tics are gone when she stays away from the foods. Worse tics were when she had dyes and oranges. So they do get better as they age. This consumed me for so many years because I had no resources.
  2. My daughter took the Natural Calm in a shake I made every morning. She couldn't have oranges so I used strawberries and bananas because they are strong and mask the taste. It made a big difference. I take it daily too! Calms my restless leg symdrome.
  3. I don't have tics but I did have that spacey foggy-headed. light-headed, off balance feeling for two years. Found out I was addicted to those International coffees at the grocery store and it took one year after stopping those and eating better for all that to disappear. I could hardly drive because I couldn't focus. Also, this made me have panic attacks. All gone now. I
  4. I didn't know Latitudes was a magazine! I now realize my daughter's OCD about throwing up may be related to the tic disorder. Can't seem to help her with this. Any suggestions?
  5. Hi, My daughter 27 years ago had 5 or more multiple tics going at the same time. Mostly facial. It was frustrating because I didnt want her on drugs. It took me ten years to figure out what caused it. citrus,chocolate,DYES worse, caffeine.cheese,milk,eggs,pizzas. If she drank a lot of water after eating these than they would calm down. Now at 28 she hardly ever has them unless she eats these types of foods. Latitudes really helped me when there was no internet long ago. Doctors didn't believe the tics were caused by food. When she had surgery for her back they went away completely for a few days. Not sure why. It was nice for her.
