Multivitamin issue

Recommended Posts

Has anyone ever had tics re start with a multi when it previously was fine?


DS 6 was on the Thorne research childrens multi for 4weeks before we ran out and then there was a week he had without it while waiting on more and during that week he was even more vocally minimal. I didn't think much of it until we re started the multi and some vocals came back. I decided to take him off it about a week later to se if there would be any changes and by the 4th day the vocals went and only happen a couple of times a day if all at.


Is it possible he just doesn't need them anymore? I haven't been able to have an appt yet with our enviro dr so not sure on the results for Pyroluria but i think i read that if he in fact has this then copper which is in the multi could be an issue.....? It also contains iron.


Any thoughts?

Thanks Vanessa

A similar thing happened to my ds. We started him on a high dose multi, borage oil, p -5-p, a probiotic and magnesium citrate and a yeast eradicater per our enviro md. We also started him on a gfcf, no cane sugar, no artificial/preservative diet at the same time. We noticed improvement right away with the supplements. After a month or so his improvement stabilized at a certain level (about 75% improvement) . After another month of this i noticed his tics increasing after i gave him his supplements each day so i stopped all of them except the probiotic. I saw another 10% improvement.( I have to add that his multi is iron and copper free.)

He stabilized here for a few weeks then we saw another 5% improvement. We started him on king chorella for metals (he was slightly high in arsenic, nickle, aluminum) and a molybdenum supplement as he was deficient in that trace mineral. Since then we have seen another 10% or so in improvement. He ticced maybe 10 times or less all day yesterday. Bed time was always the worst time for him and last night he ticced maybe 3 times in bed. We started him bavk on his regular childrens multi and he seems fine with it. I was thinking it wss maybe diet. With his improved diet - he is a great eater - eats s very good varietyof all healthy goods- maybe his body just does not need high doses of vitamins /supplements anymore. I am so happy yet scared at the same time. I am gluten /casein intolerant. I have read this is higjly genetic. I am hoping that is what was causing ds 's tics/adhd/anxiety and the new diet is working.
