  1. Hi everyone, I just wanted to check in after getting rid of my son's tics. To sum up, my 8 year old had SEVERE disabling tics for several years. At their worst, they would stop him from doing homework and eating because he couldn't control his hands. Sometimes he couldn't speak because he had to go through a fifteen second routine. He was often on the verge of tears and it was absolutely gut wrenching for all of us. The tics ran from sucking in his stomach, to mouth stretching, to hand stretching, neck stretching, vocal, swallowing...on and on... also the ADHD that went with it. I have been through health issues of my own and had helped myself a lot by seeing a local wonderful dietician and getting a food intolerance test. Since my son also seemed to have frequent stomach pain and nausea, and there definitely seemed to be a food connection (we already realized food coloring was causing issues, and he was worse after eating - constantly being sent home after lunch at school for tics), I decided to get him tested for BOTH allergies AND food intolerance. (allergy with a traditional allergist, and LEAP testing with the dietitian). Long story short, he had some nut allergies (which he barely ate anyway) but also had very severe food intolerance reactions to both WHEAT and SUGAR, as well as a usual list of random foods. Let me tell you, in case you haven't been through a wheat-free sugar-free diet, sugar and wheat are EVERYWHERE! and in EVERYTHING! Anyway, we took out all of the foods on the list that weren't green (safe foods) and within four days the tics started going away. Three weeks later, they were down to 5%. A month after that, they were gone completely. We have since reintroduced almost all of the foods except his two severe foods (with no tics), and everything he eats is organic. The food coloring didn't show strongly on either test, but we know they were a factor so we have kept that out. I am not suggesting that wheat and sugar are your same problems since everyone will have there own list. I am, however, suggesting that if you have tried everything and seem to be going nowhere that you consider getting both tests done. They were PRICELESS to all of us. I also don't want to suggest this was easy at first. We were literally feeding him Lay's potato chips, hot dogs, and tater tots for a week while we sorted our way around healthy foods that he was allowed. The day you get that list in your hands will be, "What on earth am i supposed to eat?!?" But day after day you will find new stuff and in a couple of weeks you will be in a routine and feeling like you have tons of choices. Also, you have to give it a few days to see results. Things need to work their way out of your system. Once you start making progress, the motivation will be there, trust me! Your dietitian will guide you with all of this. (It was much easier to start with the green foods, than to think of what you can't have.) And we did introduce food back slightly faster than protocol. I want to cry when I think that I was sending my son to bed every night with a jam sandwich on wheat. But elated that we can move on and that his future looks bright and clear and even if we do have some tics, they will never be like they were. The ADHD is MUCH better. Obsessions are gone. Grades have skyrocketed to A's and A+'s. My son is happy and calm!!! Please give this a shot, and if its not this, keep looking! Don't accept that your tics can't be cured!!! My best to all of you!!! Hugs and good luck! -Skylar PS Sidenote: I feel very sad for everyone who searches online for health help and is met with even more stories of desperation and lists of symptoms by those who are still suffering with ailments. People seem to disappear when they have found answers and health instead of coming back to the forums to report on what worked for them. PLEASE pay it forward when you have gotten better and let everyone know what worked for you (and put a note like this at the bottom of your posts )
