Tonsillitis & “PANDAS”

This PANDAS Treatment article was first published at

When PANDAS Treatment Begins

*Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Strep*

pandas treatment

New Patient: A.G. Female. Age 5. UK.
A.G. is having recurrent tonsillitis and the start of PANDAS. She has permanently inflamed glands in the throat. Each episode is getting worse and antibiotics haven’t helped.  She’s beginning to exhibit ‘PANDAS’ like behavioural changes during these episodes: loss of eye contact, emotional fragility [anxiety and meltdowns] & uncharacteristic defiance. Between episodes, she’s a mild-mannered & timid child. She’s popular with children at school and has great conflict resolution skills.  

Additional issues: 
For 6 months she’s had a bad infection of molluscum contagiosum around the legs and genitalia. She has an allergic rash that comes with fruit from the latex family [pineapple, kiwi, mangoes, strawberries, etc]. She is tall, pale, thin and timid. Her molluscum eruptions don’t heal well.  
molluscum contagiosum treatment
Toxicology/Medical history:
She’s had steroid creams, full vaccines schedule and one course of antibiotics.
She is the eldest of three and the family no-longer vaccinates since her next brother [another patient of mine] was vaccine injured and regressed into autism.
Her brother’s experience indicates the family may have a genetic weakness for poor detoxing of toxic metals.
We don’t know why boys exhibit autism at a far greater rate than girls.
If A.G. was male she may well have been autistic too. Girls seem to be protected to some extent.   The youngest brother is unvaccinated and extremely healthy so far.  

Vaccines contain a detergent called polysorbate 80 which makes the blood-brain barrier permeable giving aluminium and other vaccine contents access to the brain. It is probable that PANDAS is so common among vaccine injured, autistic children because the blood-brain barrier is compromised and the immune system is very weak. I suspect this is the case for A.G. thought she is not on the autistic spectrum.   

First Prescription:   

Silica 200c, single dose weekly for 4 weeks.
Poly steriod detox, according to the 8 weeks Homeopathic Detox Therapy [HDT] “4×4” protocol, raising through the following potencies: 30c, 200C, 1M & 10M.
Poly bowel nosode 30c, single dose for 21 days: gut healing after antibiotics.

In treating her [including her PANDAS] I’m looking for a remedy that fits her well.  She fits silica nicely. It’s also one of the remedies indicated for molluscum. 

pandas treatment
I’ll be sure to post updates to let you know how she does.  I’ve worked very successfully with children with enlarged glands and recurrent tonsillitis [as well as with children diagnosed with PANDAS], so I’m hopeful she’ll do well.  


PANDAS is a disorder of the PANS group [PANS = Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndromes]. In children with PANDAS diagnosis, strep exposure triggers a misdirected immune response causing brain inflammation that leads to intermittent episodes of OCD, anxiety, tics, personality changes, decline in math and handwriting abilities, sensory sensitivities, restrictive eating, and more [all common symptoms in autism spectrum disorder also].    
pandas treatment
As you’ll see below, other viruses, bacteria, and non-infectious triggers can cause PAN syndromes including mycoplasma, Lyme, & varicella.

The Future

PANS & PANDAS can be resolved well with homeopathy.  Antibiotic and steroid blast treatments are conventionally used and can have some short-term benefits, along with side effects.   Diagnosis isn’t necessary for the success of homeopathic treatment as we use the symptoms to find a fitting remedy.  However, it is useful for homeopaths to be aware of PANS conditions and their possible triggers as they can do some work toward supporting the child with homeopathic nosodes alongside treatment to raise the immune system.

adhd treatment

Adam, Age 11, UK: ADHD Treatment plus serious asthma, anxiety & chronic diarrhea.

Originally published at steemit

Adhd Treatment

Adam recovered from ADHD with homeopathic ADHD treatment.
Homeopathy is a holistic approach:  He also recovered from severe asthma, allergies, anxiety, insomnia, eczema and chronic diarrhea!
He stopped steroid medication & asthma inhalers, & had his first high fevers in his life.
He came off the special needs register at his school and caught up with his peers.
You can read the sequence of events below.  Treatment took place over 1 year. This was classical homeopathic treatment without the use of homeopathic detoxes.  He would have done well with detoxes also.  😀
adhd treatment

1st consultation: 

Anxiety [dirt, strangers, people looking through windows. Am I fat? Animals/spiders].
ADHD.  Anxiety. Anger. Hitting. Quarrels. Hyperactivity. Poor focus/executive functioning/organisation. Impulsive. Hypersensitive & misinterprets friend’s actions. Insomnia. Dyspraxia. Literal thinker. Refers to sexual stuff a lot [inappropriate].
Asthma [steroid inhaler recently discontinued + salbutamol inhaler + antihistamines].
Diarrhea a lot.
Immune system: No fevers when sick. Frequent colds that turn to asthma. 

How he got so sick …

Adam started with eczema after vaccination as a baby.
Eczema was treated with steroid creams and he developed asthma [usual if you manage to suppress eczema with steroids.]
The Asthma was treated with steroid inhalers.
Adam developed ADHD and stomach problems.  Both of these problems are common predispositions in his family.  As his level of health dropped due to suppression, his predispositions were triggered.  Steroid use is associated with mental health disorders.
Adam’s was a descent into mental-emotional disorders which is common among children nowadays. 
Prescription:    tarentula hispanica 30c am/pm 3 days med sol. (observe: No need for daily repeat due to discontinuation of steroids past 5 days).
Histaminum 200c, single dose in homeopathic solution daily to use in place of antihistamine.

steroid side effects

Your Immune System’s Warfare Tactics

I’m actually considering calling this post “Killing Me Softly”.  It’s principally about steroid side effects, but I’m not drawing attention to just these drugs.

[credit: bestgamewallpapers] [This post first published at steemit.]

Your Immune System’s Warfare Tactics.

I visualize our immune system like a series of defensive concentric walls set up around a citadel:

The Citadel:
Our immune system will prioritize the protection of our mind and brain [‘the citadel’] above all else.  Throughout human history we’d die rapidly without our sanity to assist us in recognizing danger, keeping safe and finding the resources we need to survive.

The City Walls:
Next, our immune system prioritizes the protection of the singular organs.  We don’t have a spare heart or liver etc.

After this, we are down to the areas of the body or double organs that can be compromised to some extent and for some time without instant death. We can limp along with a part of these systems working, or one of these duplicated organs.

Penultimately, we are down to the joints & muscles.  Death will come slower [nowadays not really at all] with a joint or muscular problem.  It has to get pretty severe.

Finally, A skin problem like eczema or mucous membrane problem isn’t really going to impede your survival much at all [survival, not comfort is your body’s priority!]  You may succumb to infection but it is likely your immune system is pretty strong if you can keep your ill health at the skin level and protect the deeper organs and inner citadel.  You’ll burn a fever and fight an infection.


Your body is always using its UTMOST resources to push the imbalance out to the furthest point from the inner citadel.  As it is weakened, the defenses fall and the immune system is forced to allow more disorder to enter the higher organs and the mental and emotional spheres.


Steroid Side Effects:
Many Medicines Help You Lose the Fight.

Read the side effects of steroid meds [indeed any meds].  You’ll get some idea of the kinds of conditions you can lapse into.
Your predispositions dictate what you’ll get from that list of side effects.
That’s why a drug doesn’t always cause the same problem in everyone.

People have different predispositions to problems in different systems and organs when their symptoms are suppressed with steroids. Your family medical history can give you hints as to what to expect, and if you have a family predisposition to mental health problems we know that your walls tumble fast.

Side effects are signs you are losing the fight.  Sometimes they last and sometimes you are strong enough to detox and throw them off.

Let me tell you a story …


Maybe you got an eczema eruption at 2 months like the boy I talk about in this case [shortly after vaccinations is the most common time]. You use some steroid creams and some more vaccinations are scheduled and ear infections or tonsillitis start.   You continue your hydrocortisone cream, have a few courses of antibiotics and gradually your eczema improves.

Now you see that your colds start to involve some sinus or chest troubles.  Maybe bronchitis troubles you some [more antibiotics] and you’ve got some tenacious catarrh.  You get some ear tubes fitted.  You are also diagnosed with asthma [you’ve likely reached about age 5 by now, depends on how quickly your walls fall].  [Very common pattern in vaccinated children!]

Now you have increasingly unmanageable asthma [but your eczema is ‘cured’ or you have ‘grown out of it’].  It can get impossibly hard for people to manage this level of asthma without steroids [never withdraw them at this stage unless your doctor advises it] … so you get more steroids [inhaled and/or syrup].  You still get infections on your chest and need more antibiotics.
Gradually, with the steroids and antibiotics, your infections stop. You ‘grew out of them’.

If you successfully control asthma with these steroid meds you’ll likely begin to develop behaviour problems like aggression and/or anxiety.  Progressively, with continued steroid treatment, you may descend into ADD, ADHD, ASD and even levels of psychosis [psychosis is one of the side effects noted with steroid meds]. Gradually you’ve been gathering little hints of these mental health problems, and now you are truly at diagnosis point.  The likelihood is you are otherwise pretty ‘well’ nowadays. You no longer get repeat infections and you’ve not had a fever for some time, maybe years since you were 5 or 6.
School is getting pretty tough and you are gonna need your diagnosis to get the support you need.

steroid side effects

Psychiatric side effects of Prednisolone.


When a homeopath listens to your history and hears these events in order, they can track the stages at which your immune system lost stages of the battle and the crucial events that breached your defenses.    This is my first job when I meet you, to track these events and stages and give you an assessment of your level of health and a prognosis for recovery.

When we treat these mental health problems with homeopathy asthma resurfaces. That’s proof that it was never ‘cured’ or ‘grown out of’.  It was just SUPERSEDED by a deeper illness.  Allopathic medicine generally works this way, by replacing one disease with a deeper disease.

The modern child’s development and life outcomes are frequently severely compromised by these medical interventions.

Homeopathy can offer a fairly rapid cure for eczema in the first place.
Curing the results of suppression is a long-term undertaking.

Homeopathy needs to be integrated into general medical practice if we are not going to see the battle lost in most people’s lives.  Each generation is being born with more predispositions and weaker immunity.
I think we are looking at the health equivalent of ‘Peak Oil’ or global warming.

It’s unlikely homeopathy will be integrated, in part because none of us understand how it works [that doesn’t stop the medical folk!] and it is a big threat to Big Pharma’s shareholders.
Your personal option is to opt out of the conventional health system as far as you can.  Keep your family healthy and improve their health with homeopathic treatment.  Make it a priority.

anxiety children

Overcoming inertia [When you are afraid].

Fearlessness doesn’t come naturally to me.  I cracked living creatively despite it.
If I should let in pessimism & fear now; if I nurtured and entertained them, they may still have the ability to take over my life like unwanted, non-paying lodgers!  Like carrying their weight on my back.

Change seeps in around you 

Today I liked this post [from @sauravrungta], particularly this bit:

“To resist change is like resisting the current, which makes your life very hard. Sometimes, resistance can also put you in a situation where you are paddling against the current and trying to go upstream, which is just worse.”

It really got me thinking about how I have the child-like quality of being so un-switched on to change that it seeps in around me and before I know it, it’s happened.  I remembered I wasn’t always this way!
I know a lot of people who resist change.
They are anxious, frightened people who fear the worst & expect the worst.

It seems easier to stay in the known moment than to move into the unknown.

They resist.
But like @sauravrungta says, this takes a WHOLE lot of energy & leaves little room for growth and creativity.

I was rudely awakened to the concept of death by age 3 1/2 when my father died of a brain hemorrhage aged 31.
I was a TREMENDOUSLY fearful child.  I slept with my arms crossed over my chest, my teeth clenched, expecting to be stabbed from above or below and any number of perils my mind could muster.
Fear still had the capability of visiting with me well into my 40s [when my homeopath gave me a remedy 3 years ago that made me far more trusting! I was 50 this year.]

Crack how to live with it

I cracked how to live despite it before I resolved it.

As a teen, I recognized what a prison I was in and I freed myself.
I read Frank Herbert’s Dune!  The books contain a litany which I began to say to myself when I was afraid.  I taught myself to be brave by practicing turning toward the thing I fear [as long as I judge it not foolish to do so!].

“I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.”

If I was terrified someone/thing was behind me, I stopped in my tracks, literally turned round and stood still where previously I had run.  I ‘turned the inner eye to see its path’ and noticed I was calm.
I was encouraged onward by the calmness it brought and the freedom and strength I felt.

Default a YES!

I turned my default ‘NO!’ into a default ‘YES!’  Unless I had good, sound reason to avoid something, I refused to.
I work with a lot of anxious people [I’m a homeopath] and something I find useful to deal with inertia is building a habit of ‘changing your default’.   You have to build the habit and you have to maintain the habit with ‘habit hygiene’.  Don’t slip back for long to your old default.

Beware which wolf you feed
I remind myself:

If I should let in pessimism & fear now; if I nurtured and entertained them, they may still have the ability to take over my life like unwanted, non-paying lodgers!  Like carrying their weight on my back.

A doable action: It takes about 21 days …

It takes about 21 days to form a new habit and to break an old one [I tested it.  It’s sound :-)].

Replace your default ‘no’ with a default ‘yes’.  

Your decision is ‘yes’ and you have to give yourself good grounds to answer ‘no’.

I will face my fear.

[Hey!  I have a pathological inertia about doing anything I’m told to do … so I have to be sure it’s me making this decision and I’m fully committed to my new ‘yes’ habit.]

A default ‘Yes’ can change a lot more than fear & inertia.

It’s the same principle I used as a parent to become more responsive to my children’s needs & supportive of their liberty & equality:  I changed my default answer from ‘no’ to ‘yes’.  It’s a very positive way forward, and it became a wonderfully liberating habit. [Taking Children Seriously]

Take it easy – Baby Steps

It can be done in baby steps, getting stronger and braver daily.
The key thing is to OWN the problem.
No one else [and nothing] did it to you.
No one else is coming to change it for you.
To crack your ‘no’ habit, you have to want it.
It takes some bravery and commitment & some self-belief.

Piggy-Backing New Habits. 

The way to remember to practice a new habit for those 21 days is to add one new habit at a time and to piggy-back it onto something that is already a fixed habit you have.  Do it at the same time as the habitual thing.

3 Rapid, Simple Anxiety Cures.

3 rapid simple anxiety cures

Sarah is age 6 and suffered from germ phobia and severe school anxiety.  Twice this year she was affected by breakdowns during which she said, “I don’t know how I’m still alive when I feel like this.”  Sarah was unable to attend school, had extreme anxiety & insomnia, with very dark days.  When I initially took her case I was reminded strongly of two recent cases of 6-year-old girls with very similar symptoms [here] & [here].  The remedy they both had was Arsenicum and both had made miraculous, rapid recoveries after their first remedy.  When I followed up with Sarah yesterday, the same had happened.  3 rapid, simple anxiety cures.
She’s happy in school and engaging in imaginative play for the first time.  And she is feeling safe at bedtime.

Even cases of severe anxiety in children can respond rapidly to homeopathic treatment.  Each of these 3 cases required a first consultation and one follow-up.

You have little to lose to try homeopathy for anxiety.  The child doesn’t even have to speak to the homeopath, usually a conversation with a parent is plenty fine <3

Study Into Anxiety In Children: Outcomes



In 2015 I carried out a homeopathic study to work on protocols for treating children with anxiety disorders/issues that lead to difficulties consulting health care providers, attending school & accessing other opportunities. Youth is a time when being restricted by anxiety is particularly sad as it can have a very life and development limiting effect. 

The study was for children between ages 5 and 18.
Commonly, repeated antibiotics and/or steroids featured in the prior history of the patients along with predisposition in the family.  Where both these factors featured, the onset of anxiety tended to be at an earlier age. Anxiety was frequently compounded by other issues, such as ASD, ADHD, and depression.

The study outcomes demonstrate that it is workable and efficient to consult with anxious children through the parent initially.  As they begin to recover they are more able to consult with a homeopath directly.

The holistic nature of homeopathy meant that the symptoms of other disorders were frequently improved or cured.  Anxiety was usually one of the first symptoms to be resolved.  Many of the children had had repeat infections in the past, or chronic problems like asthma or eczema.  These were also treated with homeopathy with success.

A Sample of Cases from the Study:

Anorexia & Paranoia: Rio 15, UK. [Calc phos & Ratanhia]
13 year old boy with anxiety and ASD [Sulphur]
Evan’s Case: Autism & Severe Anxiety [Tare hisp & Phos]

School Phobia & Homesickness: Robert’s Case

Robert boards at a school in the UK. He came to me to talk about his miserable homesickness, which was causing school phobia. At the end of our consultation, I asked him about his voice. I knew he was a chorister but his voice was deep and strangled. Surely it wasn’t normally like that. Neither he nor his mum had noticed until then that his voice changed just before returning to school. Combining this marked change with the grief he felt about leaving his mum & about his grandfather’s death some years before, I gave him a single dose of Ignatia 10M there and then in my home office (and spares to take home).

Robert returned to school without feeling tearful and managed really well. He’s had 1 repeat of his remedy after a relapse but otherwise is fine, a year on from our consultation, and has been able to continue with the singing he loves.

Ignatia is a good remedy for ‘silent’ grief, when the person is unable to cry, though you may see more crying in Ignatia children than adults. You might also expect to hear the person sigh often, but I’d observed no sighing with Robert when I was interviewing him. The characteristic constriction in the throat gave it away.

If you have a child with school phobia due to separation anxiety, or you suffer from grief or homesickness, speak to me about how I can help you.

Child mental health

Follow Your Child

Following your child is a fast route to good mental health:

Enabling children to gain a sense of their own competence is the key to maintaining good self-esteem and mental health. Sometimes we can step back and let them work things out for themselves, with us feigning nonchalance in the background until we DO grow to trust them.
Most often we are vacillating between overprotecting or pushing them into things we think they *should* be ready for.

Neither push nor pull … enable.

We need to enable them to be powerful & competent in themselves, in their own time and at their own speed, by facilitating and stepping back with the body language that speaks thus:

You are competent Click To Tweet.

Follow the child. Facilitate. They know where they are headed & how to become a fully functioning human being.

If you have followed and facilitated and your child is trapped in a state of anxiety, it is time to get the kind of help that can make big differences, fast … without harmful side effects.  Take a look at some of my testimonials and see what homeopathy can do.

Panic Attacks & Family Trauma

Panic Attacks Run In Families?

Panic attacks (frequently leading to anxiety & depression) run in families. Some well known explanations for this are: thinking patterns (nurture), common experiences (environment) & inherited factors (nature).  However, some reasons you’d not have guessed!

panic attacks homeopathy

Science is now finding that family trauma can be silently passed down to children.

Your panic attacks could be an echo of family trauma you may never have known about! Click To Tweet

Homeopaths treat panic very successfully

Homeopaths treat panic attacks very successfully.  Patients see panic attacks disappear rapidly & are often given a remedy they can take to immediately stop attacks if they ever return.
Also, homeopaths see unexplained anxieties, phobias and panic that turn out to be associated with traumas experienced by distant family members, just as described in the article below.

Finally, science and psychiatry are catching on, as the article below beautifully describes.

Epigenetics can give you an explanation if you can’t find the cause of your panic attacks in an event in your own lifetime.
Therefore, you can put your mind a little at rest.  You are not ‘going mad’.
There is a mechanism, recognised by science, that accounts for your experiences.

GCSE exam stress treatments

GCSE Exam Stress Fixes.

GCSE Exam Stress?   

GCSE exam stress is common … You are not alone.

GCSE exam stress is common and the ChildLine National Exam Stress Survey revealed that 96% of the 1300 who completed the survey felt anxious about GCSE exams and revision, with 59% feeling pressure to do well and 64% feeling they needed more support in dealing with exams.

The ChildLine website states:

Worryingly in the survey results, some of you said you coped with anxiety by smoking, taking drugs and self-harming. You might feel that this is the only way you can cope with these negative emotions but it doesn’t have to be.

The alarming statistics reveal that almost half of pupils say they have skipped meals, two thirds of those surveyed said they have trouble sleeping and 14% said they drank alcohol as a way of dealing with GCSE exam stress & anxiety.

Time to intervene and help them with GCSE exam stress, performance anxiety, concentration, confidence & ‘overwhelm’ … 

Symptoms of GCSE exam stress can include a triggering of any weak spots the child has (migraines, eating disorders, for example). Common symptoms include:

  • problems with going to sleep
  • or getting up in the morning.
  • Strongly beating heart,
  • sweating.
  • Chest pains,
  • back pains,
  • nausea,
  • trembling,
  • shortness of breath.
  • Stomach upset,
  • constipation
  • or diarrhoea.

Homeopathic Remedies For GCSE Exam Stress / Performance Anxiety.

The following remedies are often used for GCSE exam stress and anxiety related to performance.  The symptoms are a guide.  You may see all of the symptoms or some of them. Consult a homeopath for a thorough treatment or try the most similar remedy you can see below.  Try one remedy at a time.
Use the remedy in strength levels 30c or 200c (you can buy it here).    Make up a medical solution (‘How To’ page is here) and dose every 20 minutes with 30c or hourly with 200c.  As soon as you feel better, stop taking the remedy and wait.

  • Gelsemium:  Timid.  Afraid and performs poorly.  Dull, dizzy and drowsy.  Weak and trembly.  Frequent urination and diarrhoea.
  • Lycopodium: Performance anxiety but they tend to do well when it comes to it.  Dictatorial at home and well behaved with ‘superiors’/at school.  Abdominal bloating.  Inflated ego covering insecurity.
  • Aconite: anxiety with proper ‘terror’ attacks (palpitations, numbness and tingling, trembling, red face, sweating, faint, breathing difficulty).  Well between attacks.  Fearful of many things.
  • Silica – anxiety from indecision and overwhelm. Heavy sweat (+ smelly feet).  Fear to undertake new tasks.  Sensitive to cold drafts. Constipation.
  • Argentum Nitricum – anticipatory anxiety from extreme performance pressure causing diarrhoea.  Desire for sweets (which cause diarrhoea) and salty food.  Impulsive and reckless.
  • Nux Vomica – anxiety related to issues of time, fear of being criticized for wasting time, feeling like they don’t have enough time.  Hard task master with family. Digestive disorders, burning indigestion.
  • Picric Acid – Exhaustion (mental) that is like a wall that comes down prior to exams

I’m currently undertaking a study with children who suffer with anxiety. See here to join.
