Honokiol is showing promising research for anxiety (without side effects like benzo's). I have used it in clinical practice and felt it was effective as well. Ever since they took active GABA (phenibut) off the market, I have been looking for another tool for the anxiety toolbox.

FDA Updates on Hand Sanitzers with Methanol

I don't know about you, but I've used more hand sanitizer this year than any other year of my life!

If your child is showing symptoms of PANDAS/PANS, investigate all areas, leave no stone unturned! Some providers have been led to believe that Streptococcus bacteria is the only infection and trigger for this nasty autoimmune disease, but that is not the case. Clinically, we have patients who have strep as a trigger, but also have parasites and are living in a home with black mold 😳😬
It’s important to remember whatever can trigger an immune response can trigger a flare in these children.

Aphthous ulcers- also known as canker sores- are those small inflamed blisters that can have a whitish center that we find on our tongue or inner lips and cheeks. These can be incredibly painful for children and cause irritability or a decrease in appetite. They can be caused from accidentally biting the inside of the cheek, stress, vitamin deficiencies, chemicals in toothpaste like sodium lauryl sulfate, immunodeficiencies, viruses, and food intolerances or allergies.
👅
The most natural treatments can bring relief and quick healing 🙌🏻
If these become a chronic problem for your child, start investigating the root cause.

Jennifer Kolari: Connected Parenting - How to raise a great kid

Sometimes I feel like a rock star parent, other times I feel like a complete failure. All along my journey I have looked for wisdom and ways to grow. I found this resource recently and it really spoke to me, so I wanted to share it with you. Jennifer Kolari is a therapist that has a site called "Connected Parenting" and she has a ton of podcasts and webinars that are free. Since listening to her work I feel like a more of a connected and calm parent, and have been able to be more responsive and less reactive when things get heated. This is a gem, I hope it speaks to you! https://connectedparenting.com/

The sympathetic nervous system makes up part of the autonomic nervous system, also known as the involuntary nervous system. Without conscious direction, the autonomic nervous system regulates important bodily functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, pupil dilation, body temperature, sweating and digestion. If sympathetic dysfunction exists- as it can in many diseases, including PANS/PANDAS, then the body is in a constant state of sympathetic overdrive.
😳
The fight or flight response serves a purpose in most cases, but if it’s switched on all the time, there can be systemic implications.

Doctors say CDC-backed treatment for kids with inflammatory syndrome linked to coronavirus is ‘highly effective’

N-acetyl cysteine🙌🏻
One of my favorite supplements.
Not only is it the precursor for our BIGGEST antioxidant—glutathione, but it also has these benefits:
-helps regulate levels of glutamate, which can help with anxiety, OCD, and hyperactivity
-thins mucus in the bronchial tubes and can help decrease the severity and frequency of wheezing, coughing and respiratory attacks
- can help boost memory and slow the loss of cognitive function in Alzheimer’s
-may improve fertility in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) by inducing or augmenting the ovulation cycle
-can improve immune function and decrease oxidative damage to the cells

Just something as simple as making sure your vitamin D levels are in a therapeutic range can help decrease the severity of infections to COVID. Because having the right dose to reach the right blood level is so important, we do recommend you test your level. Any of our patients that are interested can email us at [email protected] and we can drop ship you a blood spot test you can collect at home. Once your results are received we can send them to you with a recommendation on dosing.
