Hi there, my eight-year-old son has been ticking since he was two. We've tried some diet changes (gluten free, low sugar, only grass fed dairy) and some supplements. Sometimes these changes seem to work. Sometimes they don't. Can't find a decisive pattern. I've done a bit of research on TMJ doctors who have been able to stop or reduce tics on people with TS using a dental appliance. Jump on YouTube and you'll see for yourself. The main doctors posting on YouTube are Dr. Stack, Dr. Brown (they work together) and Dr. Sims, who per some posts on this forum, was trained by Dr. Garcia (third party account). I'm not advocating that this is going to work for everyone with TS, but I'd like to give it a shot with my kid. These three doctors are out of state. Dr. Garcia, however, works out of Tampa, Florida, which is 30 minutes from where we live. Wondering if anyone has had any personal experience with Dr. Garcia and the device he created. If you could share, I (and my son) would appreciate it very much. Please ping me personally here within the forum if you'd prefer. Thanks so much in advance, James
