"Like so many others, my daughter is lucky to have had her life touched by Sheila Rogers DeMare's work. What a huge impact it has had on our family. Steeled by Sheila's information, I had the confidence to look for new answers to Tourette syndrome. My daughter is now doing very well and she knows what triggers her symptoms. I recommend this book to anyone dealing with tics." --Kace Pence; London, England
"As an integrative child and adolescent psychiatrist for 28 years, I have treated many struggling with tics and Tourette's, and find environmental and allergic triggers to be critical factors in helping these patients. The concepts outlined here are straightforward yet the clinical implications are profound. Environmental triggers and an understanding of nutritional deficiencies are tragically missed by many physicians treating these conditions." --James Greenblatt, MD; Chief Medical Officer Walden Behavioral Care, Waltham, MA; author Finally Focused
"Tourette Syndrome: Stop Your Tics by Learning What Triggers Them reflects the author's wealth of experience in this field. With a background in science, Sheila Rogers DeMare provides invaluable advice and practical options. She brings her talents, wisdom, and compassion to the search for solutions to a range of tic symptoms. Kudos!" --Jane Hersey; National Director, Feingold Association of the United States

I have an older son that began showing a bizarre personality change around the age of 7. Under the care of a psychiatrist we tried a couple of the big meds, with terrible side effects. (This was back in the late 90’s...before I was more informed on such matters.) I told the doctor that my mother’s intuition told me we were “barking up the wrong tree”. She said if I wanted to seek a more natural approach, would I please go to a certain local Naturopathic doctor that she knew very well. When we arrived for our first appt, the doctors and nurses assured me they have seen such personality changes before and said they were going to do some blood tests, but in the mean time remove all dairy and gluten from his diet. The difference was undeniable and equally astounding! The tests they performed showed a high sensitivity to gluten. In the months to follow, it was like a light switch, on and off. When he exhibited the behavior, we would typically find he had had some pretzels or cookies at school. Years later he remains gluten free with no return of the symptoms. Sadly the mentioned practice has since closed.
I relate that story to demonstrate the effect of gluten, in this case, on his overall system, including his personality, hoping it will inspire others to look for those triggers that are effecting their child with tics.
Best wishes to all
