About this title


This welcome guide explains how to treat tics and Tourette syndrome using natural and alternative therapies, with a focus on environmental medicine and nutritional and dietary therapy. The status of behavioral and counseling therapies, EEG biofeedback, homeopathy, bodywork, energy medicine, and Chinese medicine as approaches are explored.

Author Sheila Rogers DeMare discusses a range of categories of tics including spasmodic facial movements, eye blinking, mild sounds and vocalizations. She persuasively counters the medical establishment's standard claim that such disorders are "mysterious" and based only in genetics. The dramatic spike in cases, she argues, belies this explanation. Natural Treatments for Tics and Tourette's takes a closer look at the environmental factors and underlying physical imbalances that trigger these conditions' symptoms.

In this second edition to Tics and Tourette's: Breakthrough Discoveries in Natural Treatments, DeMare offers a detailed natural treatment plan. No more will patients have to rely on traditional, drug-based treatments that often carry multiple side effects.

In eight sections, the book offers advice from medical experts, the latest reports in medical research, a checklist of common tic triggers, inspirational stories from families who have successfully conquered tics and Tourette's, and practical worksheets for readers to use in their treatment and research. Each of the 23 chapters includes a place for notes and "Takeaway Tips" summarizing key points.

From the Inside Flap:

With this book we are competently and comprehensively ushered into a new era of treatment for children. It is a triumph and an indispensable guide for any parent of a child with a neurological disorder—ADHD, obsessive compulsive disorder, autism, and mood disorders. Going far beyond the discussion of tics and Tourette's, Sheila Rogers presents essential information that parents need to know about safer treatments for their child. Nowhere else can they find such a well-organized and scientifically documented presentation of promising alternative medical treatments. Countless families will find this book a comfort, an intelligent, easy-to-read reference, and a lifeline for bringing their child back to health. —Tamar Chanksy, PhD, author of Freeing your Child from Anxiety; Freeing your Child from OCD - - - - Kudos to Sheila Rogers for giving hope to all who know that toxic drugs are not the answer. A major milestone! —Gary Null, national talk show host and producer of PBS specials, best-selling author, and award-winning documentary filmmaker - - - - - I commend Sheila Rogers for her ongoing efforts to inform the Tourette syndrome community of new ideas. —Gerald Erenberg, MD, pediatric neurologist and former chairman for the Medical Advisory Board of the national Tourette Syndrome Association - - - - - Got tics? Read this book. Advice from Sheila Rogers 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 her recommendations, I am off drugs for the first time and my tics are now mild. I also have a handle on what triggers them. —C.Marie Walters, Lincoln, Nebraska - - - - Whether you're concerned with minor tics or a more serious case of Tourette syndrome, you'll find yourself turning to this book again and again for its enlightening exploration of treatment choices and practical steps toward healing. —Chris Phelps-Thiry, EdD, past state chapter chair Connecticut Tourette Syndrome Association
