Diet to help with Tourettes

with 4 comments

It is very important to follow a nutrition plan that includes healthy, wholesome foods that can address all your nutritional needs. I recommend concentrating on stress reducing, nerve helping foods for those with Tourette.

Remember the expression ” you are what you eat” ? Well the nutrients you choose to eat are very important. Vitamins are essential to life and are considered micronutrients (the term micro is for small amounts.) There are three Macronutrients, essential for the body to function, proteins, fats, and carbs.

I found out our son was very sensitive to what he ate. His tics would get worse after going out to eat Chinese. He got Tourettes after a year of school cafeteria food. When we stopped vinegar, peanuts, and malt for three days we saw a marked improvement. The fist week of November was horrid, perhaps due to the Halloween candy!

After all these observations we have changed our son’s, and ours as well, diet. Fruit smoothies, almond milk, no candy, organic eggs, grass fed meet… Etc…

I would say that this helped tremendously and helped get rid of the tics his medication did not alleviate. After a year, we started reducing his meds in fact.
