Demystifying PANS/PANDAS:
A functional medicine desktop reference on Basal Ganglia Encephalitis

Dr. O’Hara’s all-inclusive book, Demystifying
PANS/PANDAS: A functional medicine desktop reference
on Basal Ganglia Encephalitis
, is now available on Amazon and Kindle.

WHY I WROTE DEMYSTIFYING PANS/PANDAS
AND BASAL GANGLIA ENCEPHALITIS

I have been a pediatrician for almost 30 years, working in functional medicine for over 23 years, and with children with PANS, PANDAS and BGE for over 12 years. I have spent the past few years writing Demystifying PANS/PANDAS to help other medical professionals and health practitioners understand PANS/PANDAS and BGE. I believe that fewer children and families will suffer from the pain of undiagnosed or incompletely treated illness if more practitioners around the world know how to recognize and treat this disease.

I have written this book as a guide to understanding and diagnosing PANS/PANDAS/BGE, as well as designing effective and integrated patient treatment plans, and working with families to manage PANS/PANDAS/BGE over the long-term.

I hope it serves as a valuable resource for you and your practice.

REVIEWS

About Demystifying PANS/PANDAS
and Basal Ganglia Encephalitis

While the first two chapters of this book provide an overview of the history and evolution of PANS/PANDAS and autoimmune encephalitis and how to properly investigate these conditions, this book was designed to be a desktop reference instead of an exhaustive resource on the topic.
