Paleo and Tourrettes Syndrome

Commented on February 28, 2014

Hey all, I have heard little bits of information about Paleo helping ease the symptoms of Tourrettes Syndrome and as a sufferer myself I am desperate for a solution. If anyone has any experience with this, I'd like to ask a few questions:

1) Is treating Tourrettes Syndrome via Paleo doable without going into ketosis (I would like to eat around 100 carbs a day because I'm very active)

2) Is there a timeframe of when I may see results? Right now I have been Paleo for nearly three weeks and I'm twitching worse than ever, though I am sure that is because I'm not fully "fat adapted" yet.

A huge thank you to whoever can provide any insight into the situation.

Very interesting thought, thank you, I'll definitely check out an autoimmune protocol diet, thanks for the reply.

Thanks for the reply, I'll maybe cut back on exercise and go lower carbs, hope it helps.

That may be autoimmunity related or at least exacerbated by autoimmunity and therefore an autoimmune protocol is probably more helpful. Check thepaleomom.com

If you're very active, eat 100 gr net carbs (fiber not calculated in), or even 150 gr. I'm usually a proponent for ketogenic diets for such conditions, but if you're very active, you need to eat carbs.

Just make sure you play nice on the second part of the trick for such conditions: lots of wild oily fish (best are alaskan wild salmon/trout and wild sardines among others), oysters and shellfish, bone broth, offal, sea veggies, fermented foods, lots of different veggies, maybe some water kefir too.
