Top Rated Homeopathic Medicines for Tics

What are tics?

Tics are sudden semi voluntary repetitive twitches/movements or sounds involving distinct muscle groups. Tics are preceded by the build-up of some kind of tension in the body or sensation like itching/tingling that gets relieved only after a certain movement is performed. Tics can be suppressed with effort, but cannot be resisted. A suppression of tics is usually followed by bursting out of tics.

Classification of tics

Tics are classified into two major types – motor tics and phonic tics. Motor tics refer to movement-based tics while phonic tics are associated with sound production. Further, motor tics can be simple motor tics or complex motor tics. Similarly, phonic tics can be simple phonic tics or complex phonic tics. In simple tics, a single muscle group is involved, while in complex tics, more than one muscle group is involved. Some examples of simple motor tics include blinking the eye, shaking of head, neck stretching, shoulder shrugging. Common complex motor tics include touching objects, facial grimacing, pulling at clothes, repeating an action and making obscene gestures. The examples of simple phonic tics include throat clearing, coughing, sniffing and grunting. Complex phonic tics include repeating one’s own words or words just spoken by someone else, saying obscene or socially unacceptable words.

Causes of tics

The exact cause of tics is not clearly understood. Tics often run in families. Intake of drugs such as cocaine may also lead to tics. Tics may increase from stress, anxiety, sleep deprivation and fatigue. Concentrating on performing a task decreases tics while relaxing may worsen them.

Homeopathic treatment for tics

Tics can be treated very effectively with Homeopathic medicines. In fact, Homeopathic medicines work wonders on both motor and phonic tics. There is no one Homeopathic medicines for treating all types of tics. The ideal Homeopathic medicine is selected only after analyzing case details based on symptom presentation. On the huge list of Homeopathic medicines to treat tics, some well recognised names are Agaricus Muscarius, Cuprum Met, Hyoscyamus Niger, Zincum Met, Argentum Nitricum and Veratrum album. Among these, Homeopathic medicine Agaricus Muscarius is indicated for tics such as blinking of eyes or twitching of the head. Cuprum Met is helpful in treating eye twitching. Homeopathic medicine Hyoscyamus Niger is best suited for treating tics like making grimaces or ridiculous gestures and where a person is impelled to touch everything. Hyoscyamus Niger, on the other hand, is the best Homeopathic medicine for tics where the person makes obscene gestures, touches genitals, sings amourous songs. Zincum Met is used to treat twitching in various muscles and where a person repeats everything said to him. Homeopathic medicine Argentum Nitricum will effectively treat cases where anxiety worsens tics. Veratrum Album is prescribed for tics that cause a person to repeat actions over and over again. It must be noted that the above symptoms are mere guidelines. Several other factors need to be considered before any of these medicines are prescribed. Therefore, self-medication must be avoided at all cost. The medicines should be taken only in consultation of a Homeopathic physician.

I am also having a lot of migraine headaches which begin with the flashing ligtening type lights in my vision and sometime i cannot focus at all after which i develop a severe headache that can last for two days. i do notice that the headaches come when i am stressed – sometimes only moderately.

  9. Allison Porterfield says:

    My son has anxiety and several motor and phonic these change all the time. Sometimes he can go 2 months with nothing then can have between 1 and 3 at a time lasting up to 3 months. He bites his nails and can display expensive behaviour over the simplest things. His self esteem can be up and down very erratically. We are on the waiting list for CBT but have been told it can take up to 1 year. I am in the process of trying him on mindsoothe but haven’t really seen any difference so far he has been taking it for 1 week. He is 10 years old. Is there anything you could recommend we try.

    I emailed you last week in reference to my son’s schizophrenia and his tics, the involuntary movements of his neck stretching up and down all the time. Also, he skips steps and takes baby steps repeatedly. PlEASE help me get I’m back well. He was diagnosed wit this because he smoked a drug that made him act unusual and when I took him to a behavioral hospital they diagnosed his schizo and started treating him. He is not even talking and he was a great basketball player anticipating on going to college.

    Thanks for listening,

  16. Dear Doctor Sharma
    My son is 6yrs old.He is diagnosed with tics when he was 4.
    But we did not take any treatments for it.His main twitches are mainly eye browlifting ,eye rolling and abdominal sudden contractions ,these symptoms are there mostly all day and some times neck protruding occurs.
    Doctors are giving counselling only can you please give treatment

  17. Dear Dr. Sharma;

    I have what I think is a pinched nerve in my next that causes my head to shake as if saying no. it is not consistent and sometimes can be controlled more than other times. stress definitely worsens and deep tissue massage help greatly.

    i did thuja 30c and hypericum 200c separated by some time for 9 months twice a day faithfully. There was no change.

    We grow a lot of our own food and avoid chemicals, wheat, and gmo’s and etc.. We are self treated most of the time with herbs but much newer to homeopathic. not afraid to experiment though.

    do you have any suggestions and do you need a consult fee?

    Thanks so much!
