Success Stories

Condition Treated: Candida
Symptoms: Ticks
Initials: K.N.
Age 7
Story: My daughter began experiencing motor tics around the age of 3. They appeared as continually touching her face, clearing her throat, and humming. Tics progressively worsened, and we saw a pediatric neurologist who diagnosed her with Tourette Syndrome. Medication wasn’t suggested…..yet in the meantime, I found Dr. Sultan. After a thorough examination, he put her on the candida diet, with supplement Nystatin. With a week and a half, her tics stopped almost 80% and progressively improved to 95% and more. Today she experiences only minor tics, such as sucking in her stomach and touching her face. It’s hardly noticeable and isn’t at all bothersome to her. On top, she previously had a very significant aversion to clothing textures and refused to wear clothing with seams. Today she wears virtually anything. It’s amazing to see the impact of sugar and yeast on the body! She is able to self-regulate her diet at the age of 7! We can’t thank Dr. Sultan enough!” April 2018

Condition Treated: Tourette Syndrome
Symptoms: Tourette’s syndrome, nasal allergies, vocal tics, “allergic salute”
Initials: M.S.
Age 6
Story: M. developed vocal tics in August 2000 and also displayed the allergic salute. A pediatric neurologist wanted to put M. on Haldol to stop the tics. We researched and found Dr. Sultan. M. was tested for allergies and we also took him off dairy products. Within 1 week his tics had diminished by 75%! M. still “tics” occasionally, but unless you asked him, you’d never know he had Tourette’s! Thank you, Dr. Sultan!!!

Condition Treated: Tics/Tourette's Syndrome
Symptoms: Tourette’s syndrome, nasal allergies, vocal tics, “allergic salute”
Initials: JP. C.
Story: Jon-Paul came to Dr. Sultan with multiple tics (Tourette's_) a few years ago.  We found Dr. Sultan by researching environmental doctors.  We did not want to medicate for the condition of Tourette's.  Dr. Sultan tested for allergies and prescribed shots.  We did the food elimination diet as well.  With Dr. Sultan's help we changed Jon-Paul's diet.  Jon-Paul's energy level was low as well.  Today it is difficult to see any tics and Jon-Paul is making A's and B's in school and is running cross country.

Dr. Sultan’s Comments:

we need smart patients like this who question the wisdom of medication more important-drugging children for neurological diseases. The results can be fantastic when you treat the cause.

Age 10
Date: July 2018
Story: We started noticing tics at age 5. Things like shrugging his shoulders, looking away excessively. We though they were “bad habits” that never really went away, but changed into other “habits”. By the second half of his third-grade year, things had progressed to the point he had vocal tics. The motor tics had progressed to eyes, face, head, arms, and occasionally his entire body. My husband wanted to see a pediatric neurologist, but I refused. They would not have given us any solutions and I would not put my son on anti-psychotic drugs because he wasn’t psychotic. I believe in cause and effect. So, I sought natural treatment options. This led me to Dr’s who specialize in environmental medicine. Dr. Sultan diagnosed our son with Candida overgrowth, food allergies, and genetic mutation. One year later and my son is 95-98% better. It was challenging but a relief to know the cause and address it.
