    Blood work for newly diagnosed TS son

    Thank you for the information!!! I forgot to click the box to receive a message if someone responds so I didn't see this! Our nurse practitioner only tested my son for a fraction of the blood work I requested as it was alot. Apparently they wouldn't allergy test at this age unless you have a very specific allergy (even though my three year old just underwent allergy testing for asthma). Something is better than nothing of course so we're keeping positive!

    Cleaning brands?

    My 6 year old son has TS and I have recently been experimenting with household chemicals. Store bought "clean" products are expensive so I have been making my own dishwasher tablets, landuary soup and body/shampoo. I use all organic ingredients including citric acid, baking soda, coconut oil, essential oils, Epson salt and vinegar. Some people use Borax but that's still a chemical. Pinterest is amazing! I don't have a specific receipe to share as I am still experimenting! Next we're trying DIY chemical free toothpaste and anything else I can brainstorm as I am in major detox mode (he's newly diagnosed so I am hypermode right now) Good luck! Patricia
  3. I should start by saying that is an amazing site. I always feel that I am alone on my anti-pharmaceutical island. My 6 year old was recently diagnosed with Tourettes. I feel like I was left dangling by the pediatrician without any directions on how to proceed. I have an appointment with our nurse practitioner as I want to do blood work to see if there any nutritional deficiencies. Without guidance from a doctor (we dont have a doctor as I didnt vaccinate my children), I need help. What type of nutritional deficiencies should I make sure to test for? Are there any other tests I should request? Bacteria? Can you test for Panada? Allergy testing obviously but anything specific...? Thanks!!!!
