My son hasn't actually been "diagnosed" with tourettes but has suddenly been exhibiting more frequent tics - blinking,humming,facial straining etc...We took him to see an environmental physician in St. Louis a few weeks ago that didn't say much, but suspected a Candida overgrowth and sent us away with Nystatin, Candida shots (I have to give him weekly) to desensitize him, and a probiotic. His diet guidelines were very vague and often contradicting with the Candida diets I see online/books. My son is 8 and although I will do anything for him, he is a child and needs a varied diet especially when surrounded by kids at school. So, I was wondering if all this is worth it. Thus far we have been off sugar (except for some whole fruits,) gluten and dairy. The stuttering got better initially, but came back yesterday....not sure why. We still deal with the earlier mentioned tics. So, as we are on a wait list to BE on a wait list for a pediatric neurologist....I am in constant research mode to do something in the meantime to help. I'm driving myself nuts with "what can he eat!?" Just curious if anyone has done something similar and if paleo would be a better approach - excluding grains. Thanks!
