Free webinar today on holistic approach to PANS/PANDAS

Recommended Posts

I don't know if this was posted previously, but it is free and sponsored by the Autism Research Institute.


The main announcement says it is for PANS/PANDAS in kids with autism, but the general principles should be of interest--with or without autism.


ARI says it will also be posted on their youtube channel, so if you can't make it today don't worry. The speaker is located in the Bronx. Website here.

I do not have a good understanding of the science behind PANS, but my synpopsis of her talk was that PANS was due to an immune system (microglia) that wont ramp down after fighting an infection. She uses pharmaceuticals to treat infections and mental side effects but mainly concentrates on herbs for long term treatment.


Specifically, she mentioned reishi mushrooms, astragalus, curcumin, biacilin, olive leaf extract, luteolin and passion flower. I probably missed some, but I am going to read up on each.
