“I’m so thankful for your site. Thanks to the information I gained through ACN and the book Natural Treatments for Tics and Tourettes, my 4-year-old-granddaughter is almost tic free! I am so thankful for your site and wisdom, and feel we are on the right track with her.”
Your advice and book changed my life. I have been tormented by tics for 15 years. I saw over 11 doctors and tried 12 medications but the tics remained. After following your recommendations, I am off the drugs for the first time and my tics are now mild. I also have a handle on what triggers them.
I’m a grandmother who has been distraught watching my grandson’s behavioral problems and crazy hyperactivity. I knew natural approaches would make a difference but I couldn’t get my daughter to listen to me. Finally I just told her about ACN Latitudes so she could learn for herself. There has been a big turnaround. Thank you!
I thank my lucky stars that I found help through your site. I advise parents to read as much as they can and search until they find the answer.
When my daughter’s symptoms started suddenly I had no idea where to turn. Your information on PANDAS sent me in the right direction. We aren’t out of the woods yet but are well on our way. We now know what we are dealing with and have found the help we need.
As a physician I can tell you that your website has just the right balance for doctors as well as families. Well done!
I don’t get good relief from antidepressants. I took your lead and found an integrative doctor who investigated the biological cause of my depression. She was able to balance me with nutrients over a period of three months.
It was many years ago that we came to your site looking for help for our daughter with autism. You gave us the first hope we’d had, and pointed us in the right direction. We will always be grateful.
Your website was enormously helpful to me! I started an elimination diet for my son and we discovered that his tics are brought on by gluten, corn, cane sugar; MSG does it also.
I am so grateful for this Forum that I don’t know how I survived all the years before I found it. At the time, I felt so helplessly alone.
Now an adult, I struggled with reading all my life. Your articles on Scotopic Sensitivity opened up a whole new world for me. It wasn’t that I couldn’t read — it was that I couldn’t properly see what I needed to read! Thanks!
How do you manage to always be ahead of the curve with your articles? A great resource.
I’m a teacher and refer parents to your site all the time. Your advice on ADHD explains what I wish families would do (with diet) before sending their child to school! Several teachers I work with use your behavior charts.
You are right on target regarding the negative effect of food dyes, chemicals, and scents. I am also looking at diet. Many thanks for your energetic quest for better answers for children.
I turned to you 15 years ago for help with my daughter. It changed our lives. Now I’m coming back for my granddaughter!
After reading some of the testimonials on your web site I decided to try supplements for my 6-year-old daughter. She was diagnosed with a developmental speech and fine-motor delay at age 3½ and she seemed to be in a fog. I started her on a complete nutritional program. Shortly the results were so good that we thought it was a “fluke.” We didn’t tell her teachers or therapists about this. Her kindergarten teacher asked me what had caused my daughter to be so much more attentive and responsive. She makes more eye contact, has more sparkle, and is more talkative. We are in awe!
Your Triggers List for tics is incredible. It never occurred to us to look for a reason for our son’s tics. All the doctors we consulted told us there was nothing we could do. Our son joins in thanking you!
Thank you for your Forums. They have been such a lifeline. I was desperate for answers (dealing with PANDAS) and felt so lost. Your members stuck with me to see things through. Finally there is light at the end of the tunnel.
We know that symptoms of Aspergers syndrome can be remediated, especially with monitoring food intake, balancing nutrients, and watching for environmental exposures. We’ve done it. It’s never over—but it is manageable. We are so grateful for your work!
I’ve found your behavior charts really helpful for my daughter who has ADD, as far as completing her work after school. They help me not nag; it just goes on the chart. We keep the rewards very simple and not pricey.
After several years of conventional treatment for Tourette syndrome (with mediocre results), we learned our son has food allergies. Through a combination of limiting certain foods and focusing on a whole foods diet along with vitamins, minerals, herbs and elimination of most artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives, he is now virtually symptom-free. His aggressive behavior, which had been a major problem, is non-existent when we follow his diet faithfully.
I am forever grateful for the people on this Forum. Hearing other family’s stories help me to feel confidence that I am not just imagining things. and encouraged me to keep trying to find someone to help!
My husband and I have turned to alternative approaches for our son’s condition and greatly appreciate the information provided by ACN Latitudes. We have discovered that his symptoms are much milder when he takes choline, inositol, and other B vitamins.
Just have to say thanks for your free behavior charts! I work in an elementary school and have been sharing these charts with teachers. Other teachers love them. Great service.
You have the most informative material I have come across since my son was diagnosed. We live in Hawaii and have been to the state’s three pediatric neurologists as well as regular allergists. I will soon be taking him to an environmental physician. He is the only doctor I have spoken to so far who is willing to have lab analyses done to determine any deficiencies in my son’s system.
We did exactly what many of your readers have shared. We began to give our son only foods that were free of all preservatives, artificial colors, and flavors. He was allergy tested and was also determined to have many deficiencies, including certain amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. We are doing much better on the diet and allergy/nutrition regime. I give all praise to the Lord first, but the information from ACN Latitudes was an alternative that my other doctors had not given as an option. Thank you so much.
Thank you for your book Natural Treatments for Tics and Tourettes which I purchased last year. It helped me understand what a tic disorder is, and how to recognize various types of triggers. It has also enabled me develop an approach to help my child to overcome this disorder, using a combination of vitamins/supplements, environmental changes, and eliminating certain foods.
Our son is ‘coming back’ to us! I will be forever grateful to each and every person on the Forum who has offered their support, prayers and advice. Thank you.
What a terrific and informative site! Strict diet control with no refined flour or sugar, no dairy or peanuts, lots of exercise, sublingual (environmental allergy) drops, vitamins, and chemical avoidance are helping attention problems and hyperactivity. We are pursuing chiropractic treatment also. Keep the faith. You are providing an invaluable service.
My five-year-old son had chronic ear infections from birth that were treated with antibiotics for his first two years. . . His speech regressed and at 2½ he was diagnosed with autism. An allergist treated him with antiyeast medication and shortly after my son began talking and hasn’t stopped. Signs of autism are now mild . . . I’m so glad to see you are researching the connection between yeast and these developmental problems. I hope you can save some other children from the problems my son had.
The information you give is so valuable. I feel like I’ve started a detective job, and I have some guidance from the information you put out. Thank you for your help.
We took our son to an integrative physician and found he is allergic to yeast, molds, and some foods. We have started therapy and see that tics coincide with environmental factors. We spent a week in a moldy, musty beach house and his Tourette and tic symptoms worsened, including extreme torso spasms and head movements. Once back in the controlled home environment, his symptoms have almost disappeared and he is doing very well. I want to thank your organization for the support and valuable information provided on ACN Latitudes.
After working with nutritionists my son is now on a high protein organic diet and taking multi-vitamins, mineral, and magnesium supplements. His tics and hyperactivity have decreased by 80%.
I heard about ACN Latitudes from the mother of a 17-year-old boy who found that vitamin therapy helped his neurological symptoms very much. I’m a 28-year-old and suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder and vocal tics. I was disappointed to learn that no real medical research is being done on these problems related to vitamin/mineral treatment. I went to a neurologist who ran blood tests for B12, folic acid, and other nutrients. He found I was very low in B12 and I began weekly B12 injections. After a month or two I felt much better.
After a serious struggle with Tourette syndrome, our daughter is doing very well, thanks to an alternative practitioner. This past year we eliminated milk, eggs, and, particularly, yeast from her diet. We have also used hypnosis. When I mentioned our nutritional program to the local Tourette support group, they seemed totally disbelieving and negative. I have kept my faith in God and thank you for the encouraging stories in ACN Latitudes; you brought me hope during some of the darkest hours of my life.
Thanks to you I had the courage to pursue non-drug treatments for my son. I know I am not alone in my undying gratitude.
