Can the symptoms of Tourette’s Syndrome be controlled?

The primary symptoms of Tourette’s Syndrome, known as tics, are a problem in which either one or a series of muscles within the body moves involuntarily, often repeatedly and quickly. These tics can occur in any part of the body, but often take place in the face or hands. Many times a child suffering from Tourette’s Syndrome will create sounds, which may sound like they are coming freely and voluntarily, but are actually involuntary. These verbal tics often manifest through throat clearing, grunting, or another such word-less noise and are referred to as a vocal tic. In some rare cases, these vocal tics can be severe and frequent and have serious adverse effects on a child’s life.

A great amount of research has been completed with people who suffer from Tourette’s Syndrome on learning to control or suppress symptoms. The vast majority of people suffering from Tourette’s Syndrome develop tics that are completely involuntary, although some people have developed methods to suppress, manage, or otherwise camouflage their tics in an effort to reduce the impact this disorder has on their lives. Often, the ability to suppress the symptoms of Tourette’s Syndrome comes later in life, usually during a patient’s late teens. However, it is not yet known if suppressing these symptoms is healthy; many people who have attempted to do so have developed a type of “build up” of stress, tension, and experience more severe tics.

It is arguable whether or not to try and teach a child to suppress Tourette’s Syndrome symptoms. It is also very important to remain calm when your child is experiencing any type of symptom as any action or outburst can increase their level of stress or could push them to internalize the stress or tension that they are trying to express.

The most common form of Tourette’s Syndrome is a tic disorder known as “transient tic disorder;” this disorder can affect one out of 10 children during early development stages. This tic disorder is often most prevalent in children between the first and sixth grades. Often, teachers and parents notice these minor tics and yet these caregivers will often assume that the tics represent nervousness.Sometimes, transient tics will go away by themselves but in many cases they become more severe with anxiety.

All the above are pretty much standard knowledge in the professional community. My goal was to find a way – an underlying reason if you will – that could explain tics and associate them with lack of nutritional value in our everyday meals. I was convinced (but hadn’t proved it originally) that the fact that western societies tend to have a much bigger problem lied in their nutrition.

I finally succeeded I believe, to prove that by proper dietary changes and habits, tics can disappear for good! Kevin is a living proof and so are all the people who kindly (thanks guys!!!) sent me testimonials to prove the point.

Ok, enough of “blowing my own horn” ! lol ….

Catch you later!

God Bless,
