Standard Tourette’s treatment methods may not be the only way to repress tics and other aspects of this affliction. As you have read before, a treatment of an 11 year old boy with Tourette’s syndrome was altered to eliminate yeast. His family was very happy with the results. He followed a completely different type of Tourette’s treatment, involving changing his diet. You can read all about this case in our book, An Extraordinary Power to Heal. The results of this treatment beg further questions from medical professionals practicing current Tourette’s treatment.
When will food choices be the first step in treating Tourette’s? Rather than heavy doses of medication, anti-yeast therapy along with Nystatin has been shown to be a viable, if not superior, different type of Tourette’s treatment.
We’ve seen through clinical cases that symptoms of Tourette’s diminish after toxic sedative chemicals are removed from the brain. This causes the active centers of the brain to function properly, thus reducing the occurrence of tics and other symptoms. By using anti-Candida therapy, we were able to reduce or eliminate the dependence on standard medications.
While verbal tics come to mind for most people when they think about Tourette’s syndrome – this only afflicts a small percentage of those with the disease. The majority of those with Tourette’s exhibit mild to severe motor tics; these uncontrolled movements are due to the brain triggering muscles to move and twitch involuntarily.
Normally, the brain is always in a state of readiness, waiting for us to send the signal to the muscles to fire. The physical part of typing on a keyboard for instance, does not take the entire brain to complete, there are parts of the brain also dedicated to focusing on the screen/keyboard so you hit the right keys, internal dialog so you understand what you are/want to write and other parts of your brain that are completing other functions . When you’re typing at the computer, your legs might not be moving, for instance, but they are ready to move whenever you tell them to. With Tourette’s, the inhibitions of firing at will are decreased, which causes tics. There are parts of the brain that are not stopping other parts of the brain from involuntarily firing – why?
