Demystifying PANS/PANDAS: A Functional Medicine Desktop Reference on Basal Ganglia Encephalitis
by Nancy O’Hara, MD
Demystifying PANS/PANDAS is a unique and long overdue resource in the field of pediatric neurobehavioral health, providing a comprehensive overview of the “three-pronged approach” to assessment and care, conventional and naturopathic interventions, a trove of case studies, and plenty of clinical pearls along the way.
What took her 30 years of experience in medicine and 13 years of experience with PANS/PANDAS/ BGE in functional medicine, she has distilled down into her book. If you are a parent experienced in this devastating disease or know a practitioner who would benefit from reading this reference guide, please consider purchasing it. If you are new to this disease or have family or friends that need an initial and incredibly understandable book, please consider purchasing Dr Wells’ children’s book Super Sam! And the battle against PANS/PANDAS, also available on Amazon in soft cover format!
In addition to the books, if you would like more information as a practitioner, you can email Shannon at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on Dr. O’Hara’s mentoring and membership programs. Our hope is that you’ll find some valuable information from our books and in sharing them and these programs with others, we can help other practitioners to feel more motivated to learn about and be a solution for our patients and families with PANS/PANDAS/BGE.
