Recently diagnosed with tourettes
Hi ya’ll. I’m so new to all this. My plan was to continue to browse through info online and this site and see if I could figure some things out. I had an appointment for my son late into September, but it got moved because of a cancellation , and is now this coming Thursday. EEEEK! So, now I have 2 days. I can’t pass the appointment up , so I was hoping you all would volunteer some info to help me on what to do/ask/implement.
My son is 8 years old and recently diagnosed with tourettes. The Dr. he was seeing at time of dx is an idiot, so I switched him back to his old Dr. She wants to take over his care and I’m fine with that, and has assured me she’ll do whatever she can for him considering I don’t want medication, and am focusing on supplements/diet changes/therapies . I told her one of the things I wanted done was a magnesium level check. She assured me they could do that. I thought i saw something saying you can’t just check blood-what else can/should she check to get an accurate level for him? Is there another level I should bring up for her to check?
We currently do epsom bath’s 2x weekly, and 7 sprays of mag oil on his feet nightly. I’m sure that’s helped him some but would love to know better ways to help give him mag, and also help it be absorbed because although I keep running into different/conflicting information, I know somehow it’s important to make sure you have enough of A, B and C to make D work. Any help with that info would be greatly appreciated.
Furthermore , anyone who’s dealt with tourettes or has any input to toss in, I’d appreciate any help or leads.
