SUPPLIMENTS

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest_AUDREY

WE ARE AT THE WORST OF TIMES TRYING DIFFERENT SUPPLIMENTS THAT WILL HELP OUR DAUGHTER. THIS WHOLE WEEK HAS BEEN DEVASTATING FOR TIC INCREASES. SHE IS SO MISERABLE AT NIGHT. SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE IS HAVING A SEIZURE.SHE CAN'T SLEEP-WAS UP A 3AM WITH A FACE ,EYE.THROAT TIC OVER AND OVER AND OVER. I HAVE BEEN TRYING THE BONNIE-CAS SUPPLIMENT AND NO HELP YET. SADLY,SHE HAS THE MILD OCD, SEVERE ANXIETY(ZOLOFT) AND I SUSPECT ADD. ONE BLESSING: AN EXCELLENT EAR FOR VIOLIN EVEN ON HER WORST DAYS. DOES ANYONE USE SUPPLIMENTS WITH SUCCESS? HOW DO YOU ELIMINATE OR RID YEASTS FROM THE BODY? SHE CRAVES SUGAR AND I FEEL LIKE SHE IS YEASTY DUE TO THIS.

Hi Audrey,

 

The sugar cravings certainly can be a sign of yeast, I have been there myself and I don't have neurological issues.

 

Capryllic acid is good for yeast, but it really is a program to get rid of it, including cutting out sweets and refined carbos, adding probiotics (pills or yogurt), and can be more than this, e.g. adding aged garlic--I am personally still reading "The Yeast Syndrome". i.e. you have to change diet to kill yeast, not just add a supplement. Then the cravings go away. I gave my son dark chocolate with malitol to get him off sugar during this time.

 

Some people react poorly to Bonnie's vitamins, just as some react better.

 

I strongly encourage you to find a DAN or EM doctor or naturopath to guide you through this. We have lists posted under links.

 

I think that all the regular posters here no longer have their children on drugs (some of us never did), but it was a methodical process getting there.

 

Our DAN doctor had us add them one at a time to make sure there were no reactions to a particular one. He also used different ones (some overlap) and much lower dosages.

Hello Audrey and welcome

 

I really feel for the situation you are in as four years ago my son, then ten, suddenly started showing severe TS and OCD etc.

 

We tried meds for a year because the physicians told us that was the only way....but in fact the drugs only made things far worse and so we began a natural treatment regime under the care of an Integrative Medical Doctor(trained conventionally, specialised in Alternative Med) She and her team helped identify and eliminate Candida(yeast) and Mercury from my sons system, and ran tests to determine his vitamin/mineral needs. At the same time, learned about Bonnie's research(her products were not yet on the market then) and I devised (with the physician's guidance) a supplement regime to help my son. His OCD was his most bothersome symptom, and we found great relief from supplements there too.

Also accupuncture, reflexology and resonance biofeedback helped enormously!

 

I see you mention that your daughter is on Zoloft, and so I have intentionally not detailed the supps we use for the anxiety/OCD stuff as some of them

interact with drugs.

 

I too would STRONGLY caution against SSRI use like Zoloft in a young person.

My son was on Luvox and it messed him up big time and actually intensified his tics and caused self injurious behaviour. As soon as he came off it, things improved. (He also had tried Haldol and Zyprexa, and naltrexone...all with horrible side effects)

 

Just another word of advice.......supplements dont have their full effect ewhen used with meds, so that is why your daughter may not be responding to Bonnie's supps. Also, it may just be that Bonnie's formulations isnt what she needs, and you need those tests to show what she is deficient in

 

I would also like to draw your attention to PYROLURIA.....a recently discovered condition which causes tics and mood/behaviour problems. Non-response to supplements can often be a hint that Pyroluria is present

Here is a thread on BrainTalk that explains it and it's treatment

http://brain.hastypastry.net/forums/showth...ead.php?t=10944

 

Please dont hesitate to contact me if you want more details on the treatments that have worked for us. I just didnt want to overwhelm you by going into it here.

Audrey, My son also has anxiety along with TS. He was on Paxil for 1 year and it did not increase his tics but his Dr. wanted him off when all the news came out about suicide and paxil. He was switched to Zoloft. (25mg per day) he is 9 and weighs 72lbs) Within 2 weeks his tics had greatly increased. He was having body tics, mouth tics. neck, shoulder tics etc.

 

I told his Dr. we needed to try something else. He has been on Lexapro for 5 months now and he still has minor anxiety problems but it does not seem to bother his tics.

 

Its so hard to know what the right thing to do is!!

I want to try and take my son off the Lexapro this summer. My Dr. is going to help us with some alternative treatments. If his anxiety comes back full force we will probable go back on the Lexapro.

 

My son can handle his tics but he HATES
