  1. You can check dr. Dunc's 'CPRI Brake Shop clinique' at the link below where he has some work shop videos and training materials for CBIT program... http://www.cpri.ca/content/page.aspx?section=162&lpage=26
  2. I just posted in the other post our status as we started elimination diet in July. We first eliminated milk & milk products and then we eliminated gluten and many other according to IGG results. For us is really too early to say or draw any conclusions. As of now her eye roll and hard blink tic did decrease. It was present since last December and was extremely frequent. It lessened now, however some other tics showed up or intensified. Luckily these are not as bothersome as the eye ones. On another note, I really wanted to try CBIT. From what I read and heard about it, to me it sou
  3. Thank You so much! Your post is so encouraging! I read it like a couple of times:-) I will keep you posted.
  4. We have eliminated dyes and preservatives, we might miss it occasionally. Sugar is the tough one. It is everywhere - it’s even in the GF homemade bread recipes. So for sugar, we have just decreased it a lot, but still working on its elimination. We have seen some decrease in tics. They are still there, all the time. However I am not sure if they are now less frequent or maybe the most bothersome were replaced with others, less obvious. I truly hope what we are seeing the improvement from the diet and this is not just a coincidence with a waning cycle. One thing worries me
  5. Thank you very much for replying and sharing the information. I did not know much about Lyme disease, neither knew it may be related with tics symptoms until I found this forum. And is so important to know and watch for its symptoms. I will discuss with my pediatrician, we have an appointment Sep 17th. Thank you and I Wish you best of luck! For us, vocal and motor tics were the rapid onset symptom and very obvious. Soon after we noticed mild OCD, anxiety, and emotional mood swings that correlated with the severity of the tics. Over months and years we also noticed some IBS,
  6. Thanks everyone for the very informative and encouraging posts. msimon3, I wanted to ask if there were any other signs that eventually led your son's doctor to investigate on the Lyme or was just the tics. I am asking because my daughter had red bumps on her body the summer before the onset while we were on vacation. We saw a pediatrician there who prescribed an anti-allergy medication and the bumps faded away in a day or two. However after, she got fever for a few days and her asthma was on/off (not quite under control) for at least the next two months. So I am not sure if this war
  7. Thanks so much for replying! I read somewhere that some people saw improvements within the first week of the diet, so I was a bit discouraged. It is comforting to know that it takes time and is a gradual process. We will definitely inquire on the gut health and other possible issues and read on Sheila’s book. Jetocurly4, I am so sorry to jump into your post, we just started the diet so your post came in the right time:)
  8. Thanks Cara. It's very possible, especially with the gluten and the eggs that we excluded from her diet just a few weeks ago. I'll watch carefully. Thanks very much for posting, I am glad you see improvement and it gives me hope. It's definitely not an easy journey.
  9. My2sons, how long until you saw the improvement? Was it within the first couple of weeks? We started Dairy free diet back in July and then latter (as of Aug 14th) also excluded Gluten and Eggs. This was done based on the IGg results for food intolerance. However, we still haven't seen any improvement. We have also eliminated the food additives/colors/flavors for a long time now. My daughter's tics started the day she turned 9. The first two years they would appear only for a couple of months and then she would be virtually tic free for the rest of the year. However, this
  10. Hello, thanks for sharing your positive experience. Could you please let me know which brand for the GABA chewable supplement are you using? I would keep this info for future reference. Thanks, Amy
  11. Hi Lisa, Thank you so much for your response. I am so happy to hear that CBIT is helping your daughter. We live in Montreal, Canada. I called Montreal's TS Clinic to inquire on CBIT, but according to my brief telephone conversation I didn't get a feeling that CBIT is being offered. They mentioned medications, relaxation techniques and "Habit Reversal". I am anxious to inquire more on my next appointment with my daughter's Pediatrician, March 11. Warmest Regards, Amy
  12. Thanks, I'll keep you posted! She goes every week for about 12 weeks and then every other week etc. So hopefully we'll know something soon. Hi Lisa, I was doing some research on CBIT and came across your post. I would really appreciate your feedback on this technique. My dd is 11 and she is suffering from tics since the age of 9. I just purchased the book "Nix the tics" (haven't received it yet), but would be hesitant to try anything on my own without professional guidance, so I was looking into CBIT as a possible option to inquire. Regards, Amy
  13. My daughter's tics wax and wane similarly. Since the onset in 2010, at age 9, they usually show up in Nov, will transform from one type to another in the next couple of months and then for a couple of months it gets really quiet. Now she is in her waxing period and I am not sure if this waxing cycle will end in a similar manner. We try to eat healthy and avoid all the bad stuff, although we are not super disciplined. I would really like to do the blood tests for both, PANDAS and possible food intolerance/allergies, however I can’t get our Ped. onboard with us. Her main strategy is to IGNORE an
  14. Michael, Thank you for the heads up. I am reading to understand more. For some of these disorders/diseases, I really did not know much in the past. My dd is a bit better with the eye/facial tick, it decreased since we introduced the diet and reduced TV/PC games. However all other ticks (and some new) are still there. Wishing you all best wishes for 2011. Best Regrads Amy
  15. Michael, Thank you so much for your reply and for the info. My daughter had fever in mid Aug, and it seems that all went downhill since then, or is just a coincidence. Our pediatrician took a strep test but just from her throat - it came back negative. We asked for a blood test, haven't done it yet though. At the time our dr. thought is not necessary. We will ask for these tests as soon as the dr's. office is re-opened on Monday. Thanks so much for the info. Amy
