“As an integrative child and adolescent psychiatrist for 28 years, I have treated many struggling with tics and Tourette's, and find environmental and allergic triggers to be critical factors in helping these patients. The concepts outlined here are straightforward yet the clinical implications are profound. Environmental triggers and an understanding of nutritional deficiencies are tragically missed by many physicians treating these conditions.”
James Greenblatt, MD // Author of Finally Focused

Stemming from the huge success of her first book, Sheila Rogers DeMare has now unveiled a guidebook for finding triggers for tics. Knowing what triggers tics is a critical step in using natural therapies for controlling symptoms. This new book is a must read for individuals with tics and Tourette syndrome.

This book could be fantastically helpful for those who have—or care for someone with—a tic disorder. As the mother of an autistic child, I found it particularly fascinating; having first assumed that it wouldn’t be directly relevant to me, it actually described some of my own child’s behavioral quirks perfectly. I’ll be using some of the tips and advice from my book in my own life to see what difference it makes.
Like so many others, my daughter is lucky to have had her life touched by Sheila Rogers DeMare's work. What a huge impact it has had on our family. Steeled by Sheila's information, I had the confidence to look for new answers to Tourette syndrome. My daughter is now doing very well and she knows what triggers her symptoms. I recommend this book to anyone. dealing with tics.
The book says most people with tics are not even aware that they might have triggers like this. Definitely something to consider. So much of our health is in our own control; at least we can impact our health positively. Especially with all the toxins in the environment and in our food today, it makes sense that our system is stressed out. DeMare is highly educated in this topic. It's a well-written book and I highly recommend it!
