Natural Treatment for Tics and Tourette's ~ Paperback ~ Sheila Rogers
"Natural Treatments for Tics and Tourette's" explains how to treat tics and Tourette's syndrome using a variety of natural and alternative therapies. Author Sheila J. Rogers discusses categories of tics that include spasmodic facial movements, eye blinking, mild sounds, and humming. She describes Tourette's syndrome as 'the most debilitating of all tic disorders' with a diagnosis based on certain criteria that indicate severe symptoms and occurrences. Rogers presents the idea that tic disorders are rapidly increasing in incidence, but there has been little discussion among the medical community as to why this is occurring.According to the book, families are typically told that Tourette's syndrome and tic disorders are 'mysterious', and genetics is to blame. Yet the spike in cases is too dramatic for genes to be the cause. This book takes a closer look at the environmental factors and underlying physical imbalances to find the true causes of these neurological symptoms. In this second edition, Sheila J. Rogers offers reassurance to families struggling with tics and Tourette's syndrome that there is a natural treatment plan for these disorders. No more will patients have to rely on traditional, drug-based treatments that often come hand in hand with multiple side effects.Author BiographySheila Rogers DeMare, MS, lectures on Tourette syndrome and is director of the Association for Comprehensive NeuroTherapy (ACN), a nonprofit organization dedicated to exploring advanced and alternative nontoxic treatments for a variety of related neurological conditions.
