  1. Hi kdelaney114 - what type and where do you get these glasses can I ask?
  2. Hi sahm, is the Charlotte's web oil hemp oil or CBD/cannabis oil do you know? reason I ask is that you can get Charlotte's web oil in Australia online. However, you cannot legally buy CBD oil legally in Australia yet, so I am wondering if it is hemp seed oil?
  3. Thanks Sheila, I have done a lot of research on the topic but was hoping some people on here may have actually tried this treatment option. In Australia however, the legality is still a big issue as they have only just legalized growing the plant to extract CBD We are a long way behind the US in this regard. Thanks for your input and hoping to hear from some people that may have tried. Thanks.
  4. Wondering if anyone knows about or has tried this?
  5. Hi there, just wondering if anyone on here has tried the use of medicinal marijuana / cannabis or CBD oil to "control" TS tics? Thanks
  6. Hi Juwayriyah, Any idea where you get CLERODENDRUM INERME from? Thanks
  7. thankyou again Sheila, I have taken your advice and gotten some of the Gaps probiotic. Hopefully this could go a long way to healing gut. I will also talk to his doctor about Nystatin - I hear what you are saying about die-off being proof that there is a yeast issue Thanks Chad
  8. thankyou Sheila, yes we definetly need to get a better probiotic into him. Thanks for the suggestion I also have heard / read about Nystatin, I have also heard there may be some nasty die off effects too - I am just wondering how we would know if what we have tried may have treated the candida, obviously without doing all the invasive testing again? Any ideas?
  9. Hi Sheila, thanks so much for the reply. Yes, we were able to get the compound formula into him (it's in powder form). We have also just ordered another 2 month supply but this time added 5-HTP (only 25mg/day) to see how he reacts. Also upped his iron from 20mg to 25mg. His diet is usually pretty good, snacks are mostly no preservatives / colours etc but there is a bit of "junk" food creeping back in which we need to address. He is currently taking half a capsule (in powder form) of Ultra LGG https://www.metagenics.com.au/Products/Product/UFLC - not sure if this is a good probiotic but our naturopath / doctor put us onto it. I believe there might be more potent probiotics out there. In regard to the candida, how are we to know if the treatment (which was a formula including bark, pomegranate) has worked? Without doing the tests again...any ideas? Apart from starting school, there isn't really anything that has changed. Maybe he has started a new basketball season (but seems to love it). Thanks again for your help Chad
  10. Hi, I have previously posted about my 5yo son who we thought had developed TS. Over the new year period my sons tics really reduced, but recently he started primary school (we are in Australia). This is obviously a big step up from kindergarten. In the lead up in the preceding weeks, with people asking how he was feeling etc, I think he started to get quite anxious about the whole transition to school. The FIRST day on school, he came home doing a neck jerk and increased lip scrunch tic. I thought we were "on top" of this all, but it has become clear to me that his ticcing is clearly linked with stress / anxiety. Earlier this week we started him on 2x 50mg doses of L-theanine to try and settle down the anxiety - havent really seen any changes as yet. My question to you guys is, do you know of anything that can be taken to settle this down? I know L-theanine can cause an increase to dopamine and our naturopathic doctor has also suggested 5-HTP to possibly increase serotonin. He already has kid calm, espom salt baths, magnesium foot rubs, essential oil massages. Another issue is that I think that he is becoming aware of his tics - I asked him if his neck was ok and he said "yeah, its sore" but think it was more of an excuse. I did tell him we would have a massage to help and took him to a chiropractor as I have seen some positive results on tics by chiropractors Thanks in advance to you guys, you are a wealth of knowledge
  11. Hi Sheila, We were trying a candida treatment called Korolex (http://www.kolorex.com) but he was unable to swallow and to put the pierce the capsules and get the liquid out isn't nice as the liquid is extremely spicy. Out naturopathic doctor seems to think the pomegranate / bark / hull "formula" should work? In terms of If the candida treatment is working - I am not sure. How would anyone actually know if an internal candida treatment is actually working? I have noticed his bowel movements are a lot more normal / solid - this could be to do more with a change in diet I think as it was happening before the candida treatment. In regard to bedroom, he has dust mite doona and pillow covers. All bedding is normally washed in cold water so will try the hot water from now on. Other than this, I am not sure what else to try
  12. Hi Sheila, Thanks for your reply. Yes, a few years back he was diagnosed with excercise induced asthma, but now that we seem to be heading down the transient tic / TS path, I am convinced that asthma preventer didnt do anything for him at all. I do believe he has allergies (tested positive for dust mites / rye grass) and we are starting him on a compound formula from the pharmacist after doing extensive testing. We have also been doing magnesium, salt baths, iron (he is iron deficient), etc. It has "settled" his system down to some degree. We are looking at starting essential oils as soon as they arrive (young living, waiting on shipment from the US, we are in Australia). You haven't heard of anything that helps settle excitement tics specifically though have you? He also does a sniffing tic, which seems to almost cause the coughing tic to occur. Thanks for your input
  13. Would love to know if any supplements have helped excitement tics also
  14. Hi there, My young fella gets a dry cough when he is running around / gets excited. He was originally diagnosed with exercise induced asthma, but Ventolin / Singulair didn't really do anything. We have taken him off both of these (especially Singulair due to hearing about horrible side effects recently) My question, has anyone had any luck in calming these "excitement tics" down, especially when physically exerting himself. He has just turned 5. Thanks
