Speaker: Jill Crista, ND. Families dealing with PANDAS and PANS (Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome) watch at their children experience a sudden onset of severe neuropsychiatric symptoms following an illness, usually strep. This presentation covers the definition of PANDAS and PANS, symptoms, and diagnostic criteria while outlining the developing understanding of the mechanisms. We include a discussion of lab testing options and limitations, cover the pharmaceuticals usually prescribed, and offer an alternative approach to treatment. Attendees will be able to identify key botanicals for addressing multiple mechanisms causing neuropsychiatric symptoms, including berberine, gotu kola, Chinese skullcap, bacopa and more.
