lfran Posted September 5, 2009 Report Share Posted September 5, 2009 Hi Dalit. We are also in LA, and my 8 yo son has been having a significant waxing for the last couple of weeks. Would you be able to share any contact info for this specialist who is coming to LA, and the osteopath that he is working with? I would like to learn more, especially if there is a short (and upcoming) window in October to possibly do something about this. Thank you! -- Liane Sorry for not writing earlier. We had some turbulent days. We ended up not going to Maryland. As I wrote in my last post, Dr. Stack referred us to Dr. Nordstrom, who is the ALF inventor (I added links to info about it in my last post). It was very hard to get in touch with him, as he is so busy, and his office told me he has a huge waiting list. We scheduled a phone consult with him, and he was not able to call us as his office appointements continued longer than expected. Since we wanted to take advantage of the vacation, we decided to go ahead and fly to DC, we had appoinments with both Sims and Stack, and had all hotels booked etc. Then, 3 days before we were scheduled to fly, Dr Nordstrom called us. He will be able to see us in October when he comes to LA, and he thinks he will be able to tell if the source of the problem is bone pressure on nerves. So we cancelled the trip (hopefully we'll get some money reimbursed) and went for a close by (less expensive) vacation as a compensation for our dissapointed children. The ALF method balances and encourages correct bone and joint placement, and it does it gently and over time (they compare it to Homeopathy vs regular medicine - encouraging the body to heal itself, instead of pushing it). This means that results will not be as immediate as in Drs. Sims and Stack's method, but i have a feeling that perhaps for children this is a more appropriate approach, gentler and slower. In LA, Nordstrom also works with an Osteopath (anyone has experience with it?). he think that combining treatments works better, helps in diagnosis, and improves results. our appointment with the osteopath is in two weeks. mylittleangel, I think taking your son's case to the convention is wonderful. It seems to me that there is a simple inexpensive scientific experiment that can be conducted. I am trying to run it through people I know in the school for pediatric dentsitry, and maybe you can suggest the same to your contacts. What we really need to know is whether there is a larger precentage of TMJ problems in the tourrete and tic community than in the regular population. All that's needed for preliminary results are a few dozens ticcers who'll agree to take tmj x-rays, and the same for a control group.
