Brain Under Attack: A Resource for Parents and Caregivers of Children with PANS, PANDAS and Autoimmune Encephalitis became the number one new release in children’s health books when it came out. It is available on Amazon, and it is helpful for parents of children with not only PANS and PANDAS but also those with Lyme disease, OCD, ODD, anxiety, tics, behavioral regression, academic regression and developmental regression.

Epidemic Answers’ book Brain Under Attack: A Resource for Parents and Caregivers of Children with PANS, PANDAS and Autoimmune Encephalitis is a must-read for parents of children with symptoms and diagnoses such as:

Parents of children with autism, ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder and learning disabilities may also benefit from reading the book, as many children with these disorders may also have PANS.

PANS (Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome), also known as Autoimmune Encephalitis, can include infections that cross the blood-brain barrier such as:

  • Group A Streptococcus
  • Lyme disease and its co-infections
  • Mycoplasma pneumoniae
  • Varicella virus
  • Influenza virus
  • Epstein-Barr virus
  • Herpes simplex virus
  • Other herpetic viruses

In Brain Under Attack, you’ll read about:

  • Why these infections are crossing the blood-brain barrier
  • Common Western medical approaches to PANS
  • Integrative approaches to PANS
  • Interviews with practitioners of all types
  • Interviews with parents who have restored the health of their children with PANS
  • Diet and lifestyle recommendations for boosting your child’s immune system

If you are a practitioner and wish to buy the book in multiples of 20, Epidemic Answers is offering the book at a 40% discount to the book’s list price, exclusive of shipping.

Practitioners of children with these conditions may find the book helpful in educating parents of these children.
