When PANDAS Treatment Begins
*Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Strep*
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.
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 autistic children because the immune system is very weak. I suspect this is the case for A.G. though she is not on the autistic spectrum.
Poly steriod detox,
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.

I love a simple ‘Classical’ prescription but when I’m treating people with metal toxicity, microbe overgrowth or drug/vaccine side effects I may also make use of powerful homeopathic tools such as homeopathic detox therapy and homeoprophylaxis.
