Thanks to all who sent emails or phoned. And thank you for your time and expertise in answering questions, Dr. Robbins.
As you may have noticed on our site, we are co-sponsoring a conference on natural treatments for Tourette syndrome, tics, depression and obsessive compulsive disorder in May of this year. We're very pleased that Dr. Robbins
will be a featured speaker at the conference.
Dr. Robbins, Director of AllergyCenter.com, will explain how environmental factors and brain allergy, or brain inflammation, can affect these conditions. He will address prevention and treatment by sharing research, medical best-practices, successful case studies, and tips you can take home and use.

Given this, your child may be more susceptible to infections during the colder weather due to hidden allergies and sensitivities.
Without knowing where you live, it's possible she
could be allergic to seasonal inhalants, including fall and winter molds, spring and fall pollens, and multiple other environmental agents including modern day common chemical exposures at home or school.
