Pippi Posted May 12, 2014 Report Share Posted May 12, 2014 I am new to this forum, but I want to share our success story with eliminating 99.9% of tics with my daughter. I noticed my daughters tics last year, when she had just turned nine. It started with shoulder shrugging and throat clearing and blinking. It then moved onto hopping, jumping and arm jerking. She would often drop things and had trouble reading since she snapped her head back sharply and her hands jerked the pages until they tore. She would swing her arms and accidentally hit people in stores. We did research, went to neurologists, tried supplements, gluten free, dairy free, cranio sacral therapy, etc. She had braces on her teeth, so we had them removed. No change. Then one day this fall we went apple picking at an orchard. That day, and for almost two weeks afterwards, she had the worst tics ever. It got me thinking about pesticides. So we tried an organic diet. After two weeks on it, there was dramatic difference, but still tics. Then we realized: We had to do organic 100%, down to the spices and the soy sauce and vitamins. Everything that she eats or drinks has to be completely organic. And it works!!! Since we have tried this, she is essentially tic-free. When she has a tic, it is mild. Usually we can pinpoint it to a food she ate, like a treat at a school birthday. When this happens, we help her detox with an Epsom salt bath. We have been on this diet for 6 months so I am confident that this is not a matter of waxing and waning. This diet is not easy. It's not cheap. It completely inconvenient. It means that we have to home-cook every meal. We can't eat out. Ever. We pack snacks, lunches drinks etc. Despite the inconvenience, I am beyond happy that we found the trigger. I truly hope this helps someone else!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
