  1. We are planning on doing the urine and stool test as those are both ones we have been wanting. Hoping to get one done this week. I also think it is just too much too fast. I will put a call in to the Dr. tomorrow, but my thought is to go back to what his body was use to a few days ago and add one at a time to see how he reacts. Husband and I were just talking about it again. The other issue is this week is also state testing at school so all the interruptions and changes of schedule are also prob. causing issues. Then, this next week he begins a new school. So much going on for his body
  2. Ugh! I'm really afraid I have screwed up royally with my son's treatment. We had been seeing a psychiatrist who also is DAN certified. Son was on supplements recommended by her. They were magnesium, IP6, D3, and theanine. Was aggravated with her as she wanted more tests that required blood draws. Son wouldn't go back as he was terrified from the last 2 they did. So, I had also read about an internal Dr. who used to be DAN, but has went beyond that. She uses 1 of 2 bioenergetic feedback systems in the USA to evaluate. Through this machine she is able to put in supports and figure out w
  3. Since first recognizing son's tics 4 years ago, we have been through so many different ones. The latest was a foot shuffle. This past weekend (5 days ago)though that subsided and now he will be walking upright and all of a sudden have a gorrilla like walk/stance. It is like he is severely bow-legged. My friend who also has an autistic son said jokingly "he looks like he has a bad case of jock-itch". We have noticed his whole body seems out of whack. His writing has also been more sloppy than usual. Plus, he has been bed-wetting for the past 5 nights. He currently takes these supplement
  4. I have also looked for a DAN dr. in the STL area as I live about 2 hours North. I found Dr. Amy Davis in Chesterfield. Her website is www.crossingbacktohealth.com. I haven't taken my son to her as we see one in Springfield, IL. I was just looking for a different option at the time. Good luck in your search!
  5. I have came here lots of times for help for my son Cade who is dx. Aspergers and Tourettes. Anyhow, I still need help with that situation, but now I am asking for help with my own body. Back in March 2010 I noticed a tightening of muscles and tingling in my hands and feet. I had been out drinking for a party (I seldom drink and never more than a couple) so figured it was something due to having too many. It happened again in April as we had the wedding. We had a 7 hour drive home and the whole way I had the tingling in my hands and feet that gradually moved up to my arms and legs. I to
  6. Thanks for the info. Wish I would have known a little sooner. I live about 2 hours away. Thinking about going.
  7. My son who is now 9 dx Aspergers and Tourettes or tics disorder has had the following tests: 1) Hair Analysis by Analytical Research Labs (3/08)- ordered by chiropractor ---identified as Four-Low, high manganese & aluminum. Also had some lead and cadmium, nickel, cobalt, Lithium 2) UA with Micro, CBC, Metabolic Panel, Free T4 & TSH, Lipid Panel - ordered by Pediatrician and Psychiatrist to check on levels from prescription medications. --- Bacteria 2+, T Bilirubin High, HDL on line, slightly High LDL 3)Vit D. 25 Hydroxy, Lipid Panel, CBC, Metabolic Panel by LabC
  8. My son has been taking inositol for about a year. He started off taking about 1000 mg a day and then increasing to 2000-3000 mg a day. But we weren't really seeing many results. She told us we wouldn't see much until we upped it to at least 4 grams or 4000 mg a day and some take 8-10. We have increased his and he is now taking 5g a day. We also started B6 as it was recommended here. Back on D3 and also Natural Calm. Can't really say how it helps, but can tell right away when he doesn't take it. Anxiety can still be high for my son, especially of taking the supplements. Every day is a
  9. There is a ton of information on the boards here that you can learn so much. Also, there is a lot of literature out from flyers, handouts and books. My son is dx aspergers and best friend's son is high functioning autism. If there is anything specific you would like to know, I might be able to help.
  10. Thanks for the butterbur recommendation. Just minutes ago I placed an order on iherb.com and forgot to check here first. So, it will have to wait until next time. As for the local honey, my neighbor is wanting to try collecting honey. He also said it was good for all the allergies. I will have to see if I can find some. I also found some natural cough medicine today that was honey based. Willing to try it to find something that works.
  11. Son is having problems with allergies this week. We have done claritin before and have a prescription that we have never filled for allergies. Anyway, wanting something natural to deal with this as it causes him so many problems and more tics. Suggestions?
  12. As far as more vitamins, no. He was taking d3 but hasn't been for a while now. That may be it as he ran out this summer. Forgot all about it. DAN had him on high dose and only wanted him on it for 3 months. We were suppose to retest vit. D, but haven't been back. Really need to make that appt. Will order some of it again.
  13. My son is still on IP6 (inositol hexaphosphate) and ozonated magnesium. We are having a hard time again with anger and aggression. We thought it was due to changing his IP6 to Cell Forte, so we changed it back to physiologics. He gets mad over lots of things. We really want to get a handle on it. Need something to calm him. Give natural calm daily, but doesn't seem to do much. He likes the taste of it mixed with his other supplements and orange juice.
  14. Thanks for the cream recommendation. I will have to ask about it. From the posts on here it seems no one has had any luck with NAET. What about DAN dr.'s? Do they really work? Because I really don't see much if any improvement in the last 9 months. He isn't on a probiotic. Have thought about it but haven't done it yet. What are the recommendations on probiotics? I dislike the ticcing but can deal with it. However, the anger and tantrums have to be controlled with something. Would also like him to be able to focus better. Currently use Natural Calm too, but really don't see much d
  15. Thanks caringmom for your response. I actually want to hear all sides as it is confusing and knowing what to do with your child. Faith, the test the chiropractor wants us to do is a Sensitivity Stool and Gene Panel by EnteroLab. It is $369. The DAN dr. wants a NutrEval test by Genova Diagnostics. It is an Amino Acids blood test. I realize testing is essential in knowing what steps to take, but it is expensive and blood tests cause so much anxiety for my son. The DAN dr. gave him some calming medicine last time which helped. But he refuses to go back to her as he says they are going to
