    Hi Hermann,

    Welcome to the TSFC website, we are happy that you found us.

    There is Tourette Syndrome support groups all across Canada for support resources in your community and click Here for the address.

    When were you diagnosis with TS? How does TS, OCD, and hyperactivity (do you mean ADHD) affect your day to day life? How has your family been coping? Are you in school, how is it going?

    We have many discussions on various tics throughout the body in the tic parade. Please jump into any discussion that you want or start a new one.

    You are not alone and we are always here to talk to and give support to you and your family.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    hi stephanie,

    thanks 4 the friendly welcome! tics started, when i was 12 years old. the first diagnose i've got -> 18 years later! that's quite a long time and consulted many doctors, psychologists and alternative practitioners! i don't have adhd, maybe parts of it. but i am hyperactive, so it's hard for me to do nothing and relax. i don't know exactly how you call in english?

    the only thing really helped me was a speciao diet. i live vegan (no animal proteine) and yeast-free! it's not easy, but it helped me!

    i am a member of TSA Germany and i am a member of the editorial staff of our magazine "Tourette-aktuell"!

    do you have special places of research for tourette's in canada?


    canada, this beautiful country! wish you all the best out there !!!!

    Hi Hermann,

    I don't know if we have a special place for TS research in Canada, does Germany?

    What made you decide to switch your diet? How long since you made the switch?

    Hi Stephanie, Steve and Janet,

    thank you for your friendly welcome! I feel very good here!

    don't know if we have a special place for TS research in Canada, does Germany?
    Yes, we have some universities with a special interest and research of TS. Maybe you know G?ttingen (Prof. Dr. Rothenberger), Hannover (Dr. M?ller-Vahl --> Medizinische Hochschule), FZ J?lich, M?nchen (Munich) or Hamburg? But at the moment, it's the same like everywhere in the world: no really helping and explaining results for Tourette's.

    I will tell about my diet in a seperate posting.

    @ Steve: I wasn't able to open the link -> Support Directory, maybe you are interested in the following information: The official website of TSA Germany is -> - the office is located at -> Tourette-Gesellschaft Deutschland e.V., c/o Prof. Dr. A. Rothenberger, Von-Siebold-Str. 5, 37075 G?ttingen.

    Hallo Hermann, ich bin auch Deutsche! Aber lebe schon seit 27 Jahren in Kanada.

    Okay, I don't want to be rude to the English speaking people, so I'll stop the German here.

    I am glad you found us!

    Hi Uschi,

    nice to meet you! 27 years in Canada is quite a long time! Do you take any medication at the moment to reduce Tourette's?


    PS: Ich lebe im S?dwesten von Deutschland in der N?he von Heidelberg
