After nearly 50 years of effort and many millions of dollars, major organizations and researchers focused on tic disorders have not found the cause or cure for chronic tic disorders, including Tourette syndrome.
Why? Because they’ve been looking in the wrong direction. Conventional medicine has historically blamed genetics, while recommending strong drugs to subdue tics. That’s not the answer.
A new direction is needed to explain and curb the tic epidemic. We need to focus on the role of the environment and the immune syem, stand focus on integrative approaches that find the actual causes underlying the tics.
Let’s fund research that breaks new ground and leads to safer and more effective approaches to tic disorders that what families have been offered.
