  1. Hi ThreeAngels, You could always make an appointment with a PANS/PANDAS literate Naturopath and discuss with them. They may be able to help navigate things for you.
  2. Hi Missy81, So sorry your child is experiencing an increase in tics. For us, it took many many weeks to see a change, longer than 3 weeks after we made food changes. We also did a finger prick blood test and tested for IgG food intolerances. So we knew what foods could be an issue. Gluten and dairy came back as did eggs. But everyone is different. We did this test through a naturopath doctor. You may also want to rule out PANDAs which is caused from strep. Has your child had strep recently or a lot when younger? I understand the stress you are feeling. Shelia has written (2) great books on tics and helping to shed light on tic triggers. I recommend reading both. Perhaps she will respond to your post.
  3. I think it takes many weeks to get gluten and dairy out of your system. I can’t remember exact length, but I do think it’s longer than 2 weeks. Hope you see some tic reduction soon.
  4. Chemar do you have a good recommendation for a non fish oil omega 3 supplement that won’t cause histamine issues?
  5. Tropea22, I’ve heard this a more readily available form of omega-3, although it is fish oil to Chemar’s point. Are you liking it as a supplement and are you seeing any results?
  6. Kuma Have you tried removing dairy as well? We removed dairy and gluten and found it helped reduce tics. We also removed eggs as our child had sensitivities. And sugar is a big trigger. Also, we went to an alternative doctor and had a stool test done (GI Map is a good one) as well as food intolerances blood (finger prick) done. It helped identify problem foods we should remove and the stoool test showed some gut issues we needed to address. Some people like the OATS urine test as well. Testing along with working with an alternative doctor has helped us as we heal our child. Need to get inflammation down, heal any infections the tests indicate, remove foods if there are any issues, use natural household products (no scents) and work on healing gut with your doctor’s help and recommended protocol. Environmental allergies can also play a role as can mold. The doctor will help guide you. Wishing your child continued healing.
  7. Quan_daniel I know this is an old post, but wondering how your child is doing now?
  8. Hi Chemar, Thanks for this! When you click on the link it says not found. Can you copy/paste it?
  9. Thank you so much Sheila. I really really appreciate your response!! I am focusing on a super clean diet too and hoping it clears. He sometimes takes Claritin for outdoor allergies so will add to his morning routine for the antihistamine properties. Thank you!!!
