Tourette syndrome affects males more often than females. Men who grew up with a diagnosis of Tourette syndrome are often concerned they will pass the condition on to their children. That’s because Tourette’s has been described in the literature as a genetic condition for which little can be done.
Further, families are told that it is a “mysterious” condition with symptoms that “come and go” without a known cause.
Well, that’s not every empowering! No wonder fathers worry.
As new research is conducted through Stop Tics Today, we will learn more about the role of the environment, the immune system, diet, and a variety of natural approaches that can reduce. Families and doctors will learn what they can do to prevent and reduce symptoms, without resorting to strong medications.
And fathers won’t have to worry so much.
