After almost of a year of no tics.

My son is getting a slight nodding head tic.

It occurs about 4 times a day. Not a lot.

 

Triggers?

 

Lots of cheese in summer time(eaten with digestive enzymes but 1/2 the dosage)

Lots of arcade/video games.

To top it all it was the disney world that triggered it.

 

Then it subsided.

Then slight allergy, much better as each year he ages.

He wash his noses twice a day with saline solution for about 2 1/2 years now.

 

Then new strict/mean piano teacher.

Then chinese school in the weekend for the first time.

Then new PE teacher. He told me he got nervous. Got couple of head tics and took a deep breath and it went away.

That day I saw no tics.

 

However he is a happier kid then before. Still takes a little longer to warm up in new crowd and events.

 

So with this regiment of Magnesium/probiotic/flax oil/Epsom salt bath and creme they are helping.

 

Take care!

How old is your son? I know our son starting a new school in Gr 3 was the trigger. He has calmed way down now, with only the nose twitch and some strange eye movements. His shoulder tics are gone now.

Do you give you son any fish oil?

Hi Daniel,

 

I am glad to hear that your son has been tic-free for a year with the supplements.

 

Perhaps it is time to adjust the supplements. Since your child is young and children are constantly growing, so is their biochemistry. This may not applied to everyone with tics or TS, but many have nervous system issues. So from that stand point, may be that has changed as well.

 

Have you looked into craniosacrol therapy? It is noninvasive and gentle. I prefer it over chiropractic.

 

Your mentioned epsom baths & epsom creme. How often do you give it to your son even when he is tic-free? At one point, i was giving the epsom bath everyday for 3/4 months and noticed his skin got a little bit dry. Do you have the same experience?

I am new to this discussion board but find it all so interesting. my daughter is 8 and was diagnosed (after i fought and convinced her pediatrician that it was not allergies!) in april. a trip to universal studios brought on a TS flare (as i call it)---we saw a specialist at UF and we are now on omega-3s, magnesium...too early to tell but can't hurt.

what is the epsom bath for?

any other diet/nutrition help from anyone????

Patty,

I rub his back with creme every night enough to cover back . before that epsom salt bath and

before that epsom salt foot bath.

 

A lot ....

 

No dryness surprisingly.

 

Fish oil causes more tics.

 

He is in 3rd grade.

 

I am sure NAET is great. I believe in it.

The biggest problem is make sue your child and spouse consent to it.

 

Right now they feel they are at a good balance and do not wish to try NAET.

 

We are learning to live the little flare over a long period of time.

 

As long as he is happy with his life we will let it be.

 

As child, I am amazed that he listens and do the things we ask him to do.

 

Our kids do not eat junk such as cookies, ice cream, chips,etc...

 

Even my daughter who is a calm sociable person and no tics.

 

They have fruits after dinner every night.

 

Our lifestyle has changed for the best.

 

I am looking to Grapeseed extract to boost his immune system.

 

Does any one know a brand?

Take care.
