jph Posted December 10, 2014 Report Share Posted December 10, 2014 (edited) I spent a lot of time on this forum reading when my son was in the throes of PANS. I didn't read many stories where children had recovered from this horrid illness. This post is for someone like me who needed to be handed a life raft and took a leap of faith to get on it. A year ago my child had had PANS for over three years and had been diagnosed for only about six weeks. He was the worst he'd ever been in all the years of having it, having every symptom under the sun at the highest intensity possible, despite being a patient of a PANS specialist. A mom on another forum I'm on suggested homeopathy. At first I thought, yeah, right. My child is ill. If he's not getting better under the care of a specialist, homeopathy isn't going to do anything. The universe opened up to make sure I was hearing her: I could not get a hold of the specialist despite calling and emailing for several weeks. My son was sicker than he'd ever been and sicker than anyone I was reading about. This person gently nudged me a few times toward homeopathy. Two of her pandas had been healed by it. Despite my mindset about how sick he was and that he was seeing the best possible doctor for his condition, the stuck position I was in led me to take the leap of faith into homeopathy. I started seeing results within days- not miraculous, "he's better overnight!" results, but for the first time in 3+ years, something was making a difference. The first few months were a little bumpy, but he continued to get better. Even during the bumps, he never, ever got as bad as he'd been when we started. It's now been 11 months since we started. Since July, he has held steady at 98% normal, meaning 98% of who he was before PANS. For a few weeks now, he's been 99% normal. This post is for anyone who needs it. <3 Edited December 10, 2014 by jph sf_mom and MomWithOCDSon 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
