Since my son was about 2.5 years old he displayed signs of a neurological tic disorder. It started with licking his lips constantly, then changed after a few weeks to blinking hard. Sometimes we would go weeks or months without seeing a tic.
He is now 5 years old and a few months ago started seeing very noticeable tics. He was blinking so hard his eyes were watering and causing sores at the corners of his eyes. Then he added jerking his arm really hard. I called his pediatrician and he diagnosed him with transient tic disorder. Not turrets syndrome. Thank God. The pediatrician sent us to a neurologist who specializes in tic disorders in children. He gave us the same diagnosis. Told us he would out grow it.
The next day my son added shaking his head really hard, to the blinking and arm jerking. He was physically in pain and couldn't stop. It became debilitating. We were heartbroken watching our son slip away. We took him back to the neurologist a few days later and they handed me a prescription for Clonapin and Lexapro. I was so shocked! He's 5 for crying out loud.
We took him to an acupuncturist/chiropractor and started using Young Living products. After the first treatment of Stress Away he was calmer and the blinking stopped. We used Peace & Calming and Lavender at night and he slept like a baby. We used Valor and Stress Away everyday before school.
Every day the tics got less and less until today we are tic free. His teachers and family are just amazed at his recovery! Needless to say I ripped up those prescriptions!
We used Valor, Stress Away, and Peace & Calming on the bottom of his feet 3X a day. I also used Valor directly to the back of his neck. Also diffused Valor and Peace & Calming at night in his room. There is no wrong way to use these oils. It just took experimenting to find what was right for my son.
