  1. Hi Maryann! how are things going with your girl? ( From what I've followed back a ways, there was discussion that the EPA should be higher for ticcers, that's what seemed to be the consensus. you can look back on some old threads. so loks like you're on the right track. I know they use higher dha for adhd type, and that seems to maybe not be so good for the ticcers. so hopefully higher EPA will be a better formula. I don't give it and havn't for a long time, just don't want to take the chance and then even if it is not because of that, I will think it is, lol! let us know
  2. I'm sure you could find it at the Vitamin shoppe or the health food store...if they don't have it they could probably order it for you. You could mix the Natural calm with a very small amount of boiled water, and then add some natural fruit juice, just a splash so she doesn't have to drink too much, I know my son doesn't like the sour taste either. If you could find capsule form, you could open the capsule and hide the powder in a tablespoon of apple sauce.
  3. If you feel the Attentive Child helps her, then by all means stick with it, however I would like to point out that sometimes things that have a good effect for attention, sometimes have negative effects on the tics. If this product contains magnesium in the form of aspartate, perhaps try a different form, as sometimes people find aspartate being more of an exitotoxin rather than a calming. so maybe try a product that is magnesium citrate or another form. avoid oxide as it is poorly absorbed. Also, it might help to up that dose a little, 120 mg. is pretty low, you could give 3 to 400 as lon
  4. stacilynn, how old is your boy now? tic free for seven months? you've said what you think helps,.do you think it was accumulative? how did it go, one day it just stopped, or got less and less? how much kids calm to you give? thanks Faith
  5. how much magnesium do you give and what type? just wondering. you could try upping it a little.
  6. cobbie, how did you find that your boy is not releasing bile? did you have any blood tests recently? does it show any problems with liver or you are just worrying? could I ask what meds he is on presently? could you list?
  7. Wendy, but your child is being treated for lyme, right? you have stated that he has had some flairs of symptoms since, which you call herxing...how do you really know it is from that and not from being exposed to strep or even 'having it', (albeit showing no symptoms of it, which can apparently be possible in pandas).....??
  8. I'm shedding a few tears tonite too..I will be praying for all of us.... blessings, Faith
  9. Megan, could we get an update on how your child is doing on the Progressive multi? just wondering. are you stil giving it? how are the vocals? and how are the mood/crying spells? can't think of why that Also, just looking the ingredients, I was noting that even tho there is not a high amount of magnesium, those other 'green food supplements' are probably a source of magnesium as green vegetables are usually high in magnesium....so that may be a reason why this multi is working out well for your child. just a thought I was looking at this as I've started playing around with mag
  10. jayjay, what kind of herxing is your child experiencing? is this just since the abx for lyme? what did Dr. Cunningham say about the Igenex results?
  11. Thankyou for you reply We only stoped telling her to stop kissing her teeth as people kepted looking at her like what a rude child She has had a urine infection and then a chest infection in the past 2 months As far as we know her food as not changed She dont live with us and we dont get told much from her mum/nan this problem was only brought up when we said we was worryed about her and they then said they know Could this tics be caused by the infections ? Nat, I just feel the need to point out that just because a child has any childhood 'infection' such as urinary or br
  12. hi eljomom, Dr.L. will talk with you and your dd for a while and taking family history, etc. When we saw her,I was used to talking with docs first before my son joined us, but she had him stay and asked him if he wanted to. Actually I had not really used the word 'tics' with him prior to that appt. last year, and she was the first to introduce that word to him. i wasn't totally comfortable, because I wanted to explain first, we had just called them habits or problems, it was just a word that stuck, I hadn't ever said tics. So just a heads up for that, .. he was fine with it and understood
  13. hi eljomom, I think you and I are in pretty much the same exact boat, symptom-wise and test results are very similar. I have investherigated Pandas all of last year have seen two of the top Pandas docs talked about on the forum and have tried the antibiotics (actually this was the second time and I was revisiting it and trying again due to some urging of pandas parents)... I have much of the same questions and concerns as you. We did try the augmentin and after that, the azith...i did not like the azith, I did feel he was worse off on that, so I did not continue. Some will say it takes bei
  14. My son has vocal tics, where its basicall a 'ahUH' type grunt or sometimes a higher pitched squealy thing.... does your child ever make any grunts or sounds when not speaking? what you describe sounds like my son, as when he is doing his vocals (which btw, are pretty frequent for him, quite noticeable)....and then he says something, he will sort of repeat the first word or a word that he is saying in tht same high pitched tone, ..its sort of a way to get the sound out by making it seem as tho he is just saying the word in a funny way, kind of a 'masking'.... like he'll say "oh Yea, and the Ye
