At the age of 8 my son was diagnosed with epilepsy which I have decided not to medicate but monitor as my approach is to try and find alternative natural way to treat the problem.

At the same time I have  started home educate him which helped as I could be there at the time if he needs me and help me feel that he is safe with me.

Our vision therapist at the start of our treatment requested we schedule a meeting with a nutritionist  which we did. The nutritionist  took a sample of Guy’s     hair                                                                                          which was sent to a mineral hair test company to diagnose the results.

The results showed overall minerals levels are okay, however his blood sugar ratio was high suggesting a simple sugar and carbohydrate sensitivity.

At the time I didn’t pay much importance to the results as I thought our diet was healthy and the nutritionist and in any case there is very little sugar added if any.

About 2 years later I’ve noticed Guy was developing some tics .  He used to ask me if I too had “feelings” and although I tried to understand the meaning of the “feelings” he referred to I didn’t and just accepted he was “wired ” a little different.   

At one point he held his head while eating and his eyes seem to roll,  I knew I had to do something and began reading more about nutrition, consulted with another nutritionist who recommended I have a sugar free diet and eliminate white starch from his diet  as well.  In a short period of time I saw amazing changes , the tics had disappeared and the “feeling” is gone completely.
