Post-Strep Syndrome Shows in Child’s Behavior: Noninvasive approach to address P.A.N.D.A.S.

Feb 26, 2016 12:56PM ● By Andrea Candee

In my consultation practice, I have increasingly been seeing children with a recently identified syndrome called PANDAS, or Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Streptococcus. With this syndrome (sometimes also linked to Lyme disease or vaccination residues), children may seem to have recovered from strep throat until their behaviors noticeably change.

They might be more sensitive, emotional, or angry. They might be hyperactive. They might have uncontrollable tics like recurrent eye blinking, word repetition or odd noises coming from their throats. Or perhaps they manifest OCD (obsessive-compulsive) behaviors like repetitive actions or new concerns about safety. Sometimes these children become difficult to reason with and uncharacteristically argumentative.

Antibiotic-resistant strains of strep cause the body to mount an autoimmune response attacking the central nervous system. Conventional medicine’s response is to prescribe more antibiotics. Mood-altering medications may also be prescribed, along with psychological counseling. If the odd behaviors recede over time, parents may think the problem is over. But as soon as the child is exposed to the strep bacteria again, or perhaps another stressor is introduced to the physical or emotional body, most of the symptoms return.

I have been safely and successfully working with PANDAS using targeted, tasteless, liquid vibrational remedies: water charged with the exact frequencies of the offending strains of strep bacteria which, according to principles of quantum physics, cancel them from the body. This is also how I address chronic Lyme disease in adults and children. Vibrational remedies can be taken in the presence of antibiotics, so it is not an either/or choice.

While the field of energy medicine is an old concept, it is a new paradigm in today’s thinking about chronic dis-ease and an effective, noninvasive approach for children as well as adults.
