 Natural Treatments for Tics and Tourette''s: A Pati (View larger image)

This welcome guide explains how to treat tics and Tourette’s syndrome using natural and alternative therapies, from nutritional therapy, behavioural and counselling therapies, EEG biofeedback, and homeopathy to bodywork, energy medicine, and Chinese medicine. Author Sheila Rogers discusses categories of tics including spasmodic facial movements, eye blinking, mild sounds, and humming. She persuasively counters the medical establishment’s standard claim that such disorders are mysterious and based 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, Rogers 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 summarising key points. About the Author Sheila J. Rogers, MS, lectures widely on Tourette’s syndrome and directs the Association for Comprehensive NeuroTherapy (ACN), a nonprofit organisation dedicated to exploring advanced and alternative nontoxic treatments for a variety of conditions. The editor of Latitudes Online and contributor to Better Brains, Naturally, she lives in Broken Arrow, OK
