Wombat140 Posted February 7, 2017 Report Share Posted February 7, 2017 While waiting for tests to be done, my PANS doctor prescribed me various things that are supposed to boost the immune system (colostrum, Agaricus blazii, probiotic). After I'd been taking them for a week I was considerably worse so in desperation I stopped them again. (That was a few days ago. I couldn't say whether stopping them has helped or not.) What I'd like to know is, why would "boosting the immune system" be a good thing in someone who's suspetced of having an autoimmune condition? Surely that's the exact opposite of what you should be doing? I've heard of children with very bad and refractory cases of PANS actually being put on immunosuppressants with some success. My instinctive feeling, and my mother's too, is that it doesn't make any sense, but I don't know. Can any of you give me a bit more background on this? Heard any explanations, in either direction? I need to e-mail him soon about supplements so I'd like to have more idea what I'm talking about before I do. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
