Thread: Magnesium and B-Complex Supplements.

  1. #1

    Default Magnesium and B-Complex Supplements.

    Hello, new to this forum.

    My daughter is 11 years old and has had tics on and off since she was about 7 years old. The tics took quite a long hiatus in 2011. With very little activity. Before that there were some moderate tics.

    This past March she caught a bad cold with bronchitis. Very bad cough. Well, the cold went away, but the cough remained. And it was so bad that she would cough loudly about 2 times per minute. All day. We finally concluded that it wasn't a long lasting infection/cold/virus. But that she had developed a habit cough/tic from her cold.

    I mean it was very disruptive to all around her. Us, at school etc... Finally I just told her to try to take a deep breath every time she felt the need to cough.

    Well guess what, that was a mistake because then she developed a new tic that had her taking a really deep breath/sigh.

    So, my wife and I am at our wits end here. So, I finally looked up on the internet on some possible homeopathic remedies.

    My plan of attack was to first try for a month to give her magnesium and B-complex vitamins every morning. And if that didn't do it. Add the tic tamer homeopathic drops to the regimine. I didn't want to try too much at once. Because, I wanted to see both of those affects seperately. I bought both the supplements and the tic tamer.

    Well she has been taking the Magnesium and B-complex supplements since this past thursday 5/10. And, believe it or not, they are working well. Her cough frequency has been reduced to almost no cough at all. And the breathing/sigh tic is almost gone as well.

    I really am totally shocked this strategy worked. For now the tic tamer will have to sit on the shelf for another day. I am really being cautiously optimistic for now. Because I really cannot believe such a simple solution would work for a supposedly complex health issue.

    Just thought I would share.

    Hi,

    This is interesting. I always find that taking a dose of magnesium at night helps my muscles relax a bit. This seems to have a biofeedback kind of mechanism. When the muscles relax a bit, the tics slow down, too. They don't away entirely, but there is a calming sensation for an hour or so.

    Can you tell me how much magnesium you give your daughter each day?

    And what dose of b-complex vitamins? I always find that b vitamins upset my stomach a bit, but maybe it's worth it.

    Thanks!
