  1. I have a daughter that does not have ts, but would get into these frenzies. I often referred to her as my dr jeckyl and mr hyde kid, happy go lucky 95% of the time, but the other 5% - so defiant. Neither my husband or I could do anything with her when she got into one of these "moods". We had a hair analysis done about 5 weeks ago, and have been treating her for high hair copper for the past 4 weeks, and we have only had one incident in that time - and it was over in a few minutes, rather than hours, wheras before we were having 2 or 3 a week, and she has had no migraines in that time eith
  2. Wow Kim - some of us here have tried the houstin enzymes, but there are so many more I had never heard of. Thanks once again for the transcipt. Caz
  3. Good on you Andy. Hope it works for your child - and makes a difference for you. Remember to start slowly, and then gradually ramp up the dose. We are still at two drops, when we go past that we get symptom flareups - maybe gut troubles - not sure why, but we are still slowly easing up. I got my sons hair analysis back, and unforntunatly no mercury coming out in hair, but I just hope that that means he is excreting it thru urine, and not his hair. Overall the hair analysis showed improvement from last time, just about everything in the normal range, unlike before when we had real hi
  4. Thanks for these transcipts Kim. I didn't get on the computer in time to hear either of these talks, but I really wanted to hear Dr Deth. Are you thinking of trying methyl b12? Anyone here doing shots? We are using sublingual drops, but I imagine the shots are the best way to go. Interesting what he said about tics and methylation. I wish a study could be done on tourettes and methylation. Caz
  5. Thanks Kim I popped in the listen for a while to biochat, but then the kids went crazy (school hols and it being am here not pm), so I had to log out. I appreciate all the info you have put up on this and other issues. Chelation seems to be fraught with issues. I had wondered about adding td-dmps to what we are doing, but it is another large cost, and for now, things seem to be going along ok. That being said, my kid has come down with the flu, and tics have increased dramatically, but we know this happens each time he is sick. I am giving extra zinc and vitamin c to help.
  6. Kim - I remember now you talking about your sons blood tests and that the pediatrician didn't seem to think anything of the results. Hopefully that is where integrated drs make the difference, they look at the big picture, rather than dismiss such results. Have you run the complete blood test again, to see if the results are the same, or if they are more "in range" now. Sometime eleveated lymphocytes indicate an active viral infection, if that was the case, and it is now passed, they may be more within range, and you can stop being concerned. If not, then you know that there is an area
  7. I have posted some info on ndf plus usage on the thread called NDF. Interesting Kim about results suggesting b12/folate deficiency. The other stuff about heavy metal treatment and its antioxidant properties was interesting also. Caz
  8. I have been using ndf plus for my son for about 10 weeks now, we are still on a really low dose. At one point we increased the dose to quickly and the tics flaired badly, dont know if this was a gut thing, or an inablility to detox the stuff the ndf pulled or what. I believe it is helping, but we have not as yet had urine testing to show if it is pulling stuff. We recently did a hair analysis and will get the results in 2 - 3 weeks. I'll keep everyone posted as they arrive. I am led to believe that sometimes other nasties are pulled first, before mercury with this stuff. I cleans
  9. Kim, and others Thanks for the transcripts of the other speakers. All the research into Autism is really helpful in that they are working out best protocols for getting rid of heavy metals, gut bugs and inflammation, so I like to read all I can about it. The info on oxidative stress and how it refers to the methylation pathway and how methyl b12 kickstarts this is found in the following research oxidative stress markers The info I have been reading on Dr Neubranders site is in the downloads section Methyl b12 myth miracle or masterpiece IN this info he talks about how oft
  10. Kim, I too listened to Dr Neubrander on biochat after you recommended it. I found him very impressive. He is very passionate about what he does. I only listened for the first hour of so as the baby woke up so I missed your question on Tourette's - interesting his comments on beef. That would seem a highly unusual thing to be allergic to. Over the past few weeks I have read a little from Dr Neubranders website, and looking at the research that has been done on methyl b12, especially the paper on autism and methylation by Jill James. I guessed my kid needed this, as he has low methion
  11. Cheri Do you have a list or a link to somewhere that lists the blood tests that should be done. I know one is called something titers. My youngest (4 years) has been having throat clearing troubles for about a year now, after a bout of strep, and he kept having large lymph glands in the neck, and the regular doctor just dismissed it as being part of his recovery from tonsilitis. Just last week he got sick with what I suspect was fifths disease (slap cheek) and he turned into a monster. Agro, defiant and using repeditive bad language. He is taking ndf, and I am putting grapefruit se

  13. Is your son sick at the moment? I find illness really flared up my sons tics. Whilst there is a correlation with pandas and strep, I find any illness, even just a cold makes a huge difference. Even just a headache makes them worse. I dont know how long you son has been on lexapro, and I done even really know of this med, but for my son, when he first started orap, I thought it was a miracle, but then over time, the tics came back worse than what they were before we started treating with orap. I think the body becomes "used to" these medications and they loose their effectiveness. F
  14. Thought this was interesting carnitine and cytokines More about inosine and cytokines cytokines and atp cytokines and inosine
  15. It has intreguided me about folic acid increasing inosine. Looking further into this last night, I found that inosine is a byproduct of the "methylation" cycle, something to do with adenosine being turned into inosine via an enzymatic step. If methylatin isn't working well, then some of these byproducts will not adequately be produced by the body. ' If inosine is such a great antiinflammatory why is it not more well researched in either Tourette's, or autism, or even any of the other inflammatory conditions like arthritis etc. I think if increasing folic acid helps, then this is p
