About this Webinar

Toxins and the Immune System in PANS and PANDAS


Millions of children get infections like Strep and Mycoplasma every year. Why do some children develop PANS and PANDAS? What is different about them?

Although there are genetic predispositions involved in PANS and PANDAS, there is one environmental factor that we have seen in the hundreds of patients we have treated with these disorders. That factor is exposure to environmental toxins and toxicants. These chemicals induce immune dysregulation which involves both autoimmunity (overactivation) and Immune deficiency (underactivity). The most common immune dysregulator (found in 100% of the patients with PANS we have tested) is mycotoxins from mold exposure. The medical literature indicates that mycotoxins, in addition to being direct poisons in the brain, cause immune dysregulation. Correcting the immune dysregulation and removing the toxin exposure in the patient and their environment can lead to long-term recovery. PANS does not have to be a permanent diagnosis.


1. Learn the four things that must be done to lead to long-term cures in PANS and PANDAS
2. Learn why PANS and PANDAS are not just autoimmune conditions but conditions of immune dysregulation
3. Learn about the root causes of Immune Dysregulation
4. Learn about mold exposure and its effects on the immune system and the brain.
5. Learn about viable testing methods for patients and their homes for toxins and toxicants
6. Learn about an Integrative approach to the four areas that must be addressed to solve the PANS/PANDAS riddle.


About Scott Antoine, DO, FACEP, ABOIM, IFMCP

Dr. Scott Antoine completed his undergraduate training at the University of Scranton in Scranton, Pennsylvania, after which he completed his doctorate at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. He completed an Emergency Medicine Residency and an Emergency Medical Services Fellowship at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia. He then served seven years of active duty with the United States Army as an Emergency Physician. Moving to Indianapolis in 2005 after his term of service, he worked as an Emergency Physician at St. Francis Hospital until 2019.

In addition to his board certification in Emergency Medicine, he achieved board certification in Integrative Medicine through the newly formed American Board of Integrative Medicine in 2016. He also holds certifications in Functional Medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine and A4M.

His daughter developed Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (PANS) in 2013. He and his wife Ellen, also a Functional and Integrative Medicine physician, were able to shut off the immune response, treat the infections and toxins responsible for her PANS presentation and bring her to full recovery. After his daughter recovered from PANS, he knew his specialty had found him.

Since then, he has refined his process and has helped hundreds of children recover from PANS and PANDAS. In 2019, he successfully lobbied the Indiana legislature and helped pass a law that prohibits insurance companies in Indiana from denying coverage for medical care (including IVIG) for children with PANS and PANDAS. Dr. Antoine has just finished a book for Physicians on the management of PANS and PANDAS in children. It will be released in early 2024.

    I would love to join the webinar tomorrow. It have a meeting at the same time. If I register can I view it at a different time. I truly could use this information.
    We are that family that lives in MOLd unknowingly for 4yrs and the effects on us and our two kids especially our son born into the house have been big. He shows PANS/PANDAS completely. But we’ve since left the house. It’s been ripped open and all water damage removed… we are basically down to every room wide open. Everything is being replace I mean everything g down to HVAC units air ducts all flooring and almost every room.
