I have used many principles in Roger's book (diet, supplements, etc.) , but have yet to read the book cover to cover.
With allergy season upon us, and Stink's tics at an all time high (think very soft hiccups and eye rolls every 5 seconds - no joke) I am ready to pour into this book once again. (No, not saying he doesn't have a neurological disposition to ticking, but 3 years into my journey, I've noticed that rain and seasonal changes bring out the worst tics. Food for thought to be sure. Organic,non-food dyed, no wheat food, of course.
I had the good fortune of corresponding with Rogers over email last year and did a small review for her when i was writring for BabyCenter.
Rogers talked me down a ledge when I thought I couldn't hear Stink cough one more time (pool season... cholorine... it gets him every time.
The remedy? Epsom salt - 2 cups in his bath for 20 minutes or 1 cup for 10. The magnesium helps take out the toxins. It kind of worked, but not 100%. But I suppose, like all this natural approach, it's not going to cure something. It will simply keep our kids healthy. Like with Stink's "All Time High" now of tics - it's not crazy jerking, barking, screaming or cursing. He's just softly vocalizing. Perhaps it would be worse if I didn't keep him on such a balanced diet. I will never know.)
But why can't I make the noises stop all together for God Sake???
He has Tourettes.
I keep forgetting.
More to come. Would love to hear if anyone has read Sheila's book. Or perhaps we can all read some chapters together and do a mini-book club on it? Who's game?
