     2 Discussion

     Gilles de la Tourette syndrome has the following characteristics: (1) the incidence was higher than male to female ratio of 3 to 4:1, with an average age of onset is 7 years old, a typical case of onset at 2 to 15-year-old male suffering from infants more often

    associated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, while in women, more children with obsessive-compulsive disorder is associated with; (2) The broad and complex spectrum of symptoms; (3) the disease course of the disease a long time, generally in a more than one year may be as long as 10 years or more, or even lifelong, and the volatility strong, disappeared the obvious, but most disappear during puberty before and after the subsequent recurrence occasionally; (4) coexisting disease are more regular joint or cross appeared to be more complex and difficult clinical manifestations were diagnosed; (5) cases presented as part of a family of genetic disease.

     The cause of this disease is not yet fully established, consider the following aspects relate to: a family hereditary; and the dopamine system of the defect-related;

    secondary to streptococcal infection in the autoimmune process leading to the underlying factors of this disease; and living environment and social and psychological factors [3].

     Western medicine treatment of this disease are primarily used to dopamine D2

    receptor blockers, including haloperidol, piperazine Mi-ching, too will benefit,

    risperidone; there is a α2 receptor blockers, such as clonidine and so on. Of these drugs is mainly for controlling the symptoms, control quickly, because of the role of non-

    selective, so there is an apparent control of the normal muscle of the side effects, and its side effects are relatively large, mainly extrapyramidal symptoms, acute muscle tension barriers, Parkinson's syndrome, sleepiness, slow reaction, memory impairment, decline

    in academic performance, etc., had to interrupt treatment, affecting the treatment and prognosis of this disease.

     Chinese medicine treatment of the disease have certain advantages, according to

    syndrome differentiation and the overall concept of principles for the analysis of cause and Syndromes, in accordance with the specific clinical manifestations of each case, the light tongue, tongue, pulse to develop treatment guidelines, vary , there is the

    destination choice medication, acupuncture can also be a result of human and paste ear and other methods to control the symptoms at the same time, improving physical fitness in children, in the course of treatment drugs are subject to change according to

    changes in disease symptoms and control over their solid-Law can be righting to

    consolidate the curative effect. In short, play an integral role in traditional Chinese medicine to understand the physical conditions of children, understanding physical,

    accurate and dialectical, weigh medication, Quxie ann, adjust the yin and yang, so that children reduce recurrence and restore health.

     The disease is mostly traditional Chinese medicine, "Head blink", "slow convulsion," "Chi ?", "depression" and other areas. Proceeding from the concept of

    traditional Chinese medicine as a whole, combined with yin and yang theory, Yang dynamic is more than enough Yin Jing is the main feature of pathogenesis. "Su asked to be as big of yin and yang" theory, said: "Yin Jing Yang impatient," that is the main

    soft tranquility of yin, yang main just impatient, "Su asked angry Heavenly" theory, said: "Yin Pingyang secret, is the spirit of rule." Yin and Yang harmony and complement each other, then the body an orderly adjustment. As the body children of

    Chun-yang, Yang often I, essence and blood body fluid substances such as relatively short, there is insufficient yin-yang is more than the system can not yin-yang, Yang

    Kang Yi Yin Kui appears the pathological changes of wind-driven. The disease disease-

    bit, mainly in the liver, kidney, spleen, is a false standard of the virtual cards with a liver-kidney-oriented, Yang Kang as the standard pneumatic, "Nei Jing" which reads: "the wind out of various strings are all part of the liver "Wind is yang evil, sexually

    active, the main draw; so-called" chronic illness, are usually done by sputum Shung

    strange disease ", and therefore the relationship between the spleen is also relatively close. I believe that Zi-yin Qian Yang, Pinggan Xifeng most important, and spleen

    phlegm. Fang with Rehmannia, cornus, Chinese wolfberry son, turtle shell, Scrophulariaceae, Asparagus, white peony root nourish Yin Ye, Yang Kang to the system; Uncaria, keel, silkworm, Daizhe Dan Jiangni Qian Yang, Pinggan Xifeng ;

    Fuling, yam spleen phlegm, the three-phase Ng, Cheung raise the shadows, and keep

    their yang, yin and yang Ji, the wind only be cured phlegm, you may Zhu Zheng-ning.

     Treatment of the disease in addition to safety and effective drug treatment, and

    actively carry out psychological interventions, is also an important treatment, mainly for children with emotional problems associated with other symptoms, elimination of

    triggers and restore children's self-confidence, prevent the occurrence of other

    psychological problems, indirect relieve symptoms for the children to create a harmonious, warm, quiet environment conducive to children with a speedy recovery.
