  1. Herx with xylitol nasal spray?

    I would concur...more likely herx from abx as apposed to xclear. Maybe try the xlcear brand rather than making your own and see how that works.
  2. PANS/ PANDAS Doctors in Houston TX ?

    Remember.....you get what you pay for. Flat out refused to pay for doctors who wouldn't, couldn't treat Pandas/Pans. Paid many multiples more for good doc.....on a good path currently.
  3. OCD or Anxiety?

    DC Watch this vid series. It really helps you understand how and why certain "mental" health issues are more biochemically involved with gut health, immune issue etc... 5-6 part series. Very layman's terms where anyone can get it.
  4. Looking for PANDAS doctor in Michigan

    http://www.pandasnetwork.org/research-resources/us-providers/ I really recommend the guy from Gahanna,OH....about a 4 hour drive from Ann Arbor. He is integrative where he will focus on the whole child. All aspect pertaining to immune system, infections, chemical imbalances, nutritional/mineral deficiency, allergy......It is very comprehensive and thorough approach to healing our kiddos.
  5. Looking for PANDAS doctor in Michigan

    Where in Michigan??? I can recommend REALLY GOOD DOC north side of Columbus,OH with a probable long lead time to get in to.
  6. Inquiring minds want to know.....who is this "doctor"????
  7. This is beyond unacceptable. Do not pay any bill where a doc treats you, your child or your concerns this way. Get to a DAN/PANS/PANDAS doc sooner than later. REPEAT.....DO NOT PAY ANY BILL WHERE A DOC DOES THIS. TELL THEM YOU HAVE NO INTENTION OF PAYING.....IF IT GOES TO COLLECTIONS....STAND FAST AND DO NOT PAY AND TELL THE COLLECTION AGENCY WHY YOU ARE NOT PAYING. They will get it and no pursue it....unless they are really big jerks.
  8. Am I on the right treatment plan?

    I would agree on the tonsils. I also would say that while abx are hugely important....supplements for immune support and overall health are equally important and critical.....just in a different way. Getting to a Pandas/Pans/Lyme literate integrative doc will be huge in seeing gains in health and immune function.
  9. Can Flumist cause PANS?

    Pandas....probably not......PANS......YES. I know kids who had febrile seizures post flu mist. So Yes.....I would say there is a link.
  10. Seeing Dr Lewis tomorrow! Tips?

    Hi Tracy!!!! How did it go????
  11. Tick

    Spot on Mama2alex!!!!------echoing.
  12. Tics as new symptom

    Echoing Dasu.....better to hit it early and stay ahead than let it get full blown.
  13. Best ABX for Mycoplasma?

    Sachromyces Boullardi is critical for anti yeast when doing long term abx like zith. It can be taken at the same time as the abx and the probiotic away from the abx. We like zithromax. I would say a worsening of symptoms for us was actually a normalizing of the immune response.....ie mycoplasma titers high....then zith.....and a big letdown of mucous from the sinuses and chest......being able to get it out. I also will say that zithromax has immune modulation properties and stopping cold turkey is not what is best........see below video. A M,W,F prophylaxis for a period after the long term is recommended to not cause the immune response to reactivate. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiE-N_5_bjLAhVGKiYKHQ4wBOEQtwIIHzAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Du7Mn-v5f23A&usg=AFQjCNG6VBOpoJ_Co5ERfJPoDyT5d5IfwA
  14. Mycoplasma Pneumonia Help/Advice

    Prefer zithromax as it is broad spectrum, been used for along time, for people with penicillin allergy. Not to mention, it supposedly has immune modulating properties. I cannot say enough about probiotics and Sacchromyces Boulardi combo with long term broad spectrum abx.
  15. What's the best instant relief?

    Mike Zithromax would take care of both.....However, it needs to be an all above approach. There is no magical single bullet. Long term zith is a good place to start....but treating with probitoics and sach boulardi are huge too. Then eliminatiing potential food triggers or other environmental triggers, controlling inflammation, supplementing with varying vitamins and minerals. It really needs to be an all encompassing multi-faceted approach to healing.
