At Mind Align Psychiatry, we adopt a comprehensive and integrative approach to treating Pediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (PANS) and Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections (PANDAS). Our PANS/PANDAS treatment strategies blend medical and holistic methods, personalized to the severity and root causes of the disorder.

Pharmacological Interventions:

  • Antimicrobials: Antibiotics and antivirals are prescribed based on the infectious triggers to address underlying infections.
  • Anti-inflammatory Medications: Ibuprofen and Tylenol are used for inflammation management.
  • Immunomodulatory Therapies: IVIG is used in severe cases to modulate the immune system.
  • Psychiatric Medications: These are used alongside Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for symptom management.

Supplemental Interventions:

  • Anti-inflammatory Supplements: Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Curcumin, and Vitamin D help reduce neuroinflammation.
  • Vitamins and Minerals: Vitamin D, Zinc, B Vitamins, and Magnesium correct imbalances.
  • N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) and Magnesium: These supplements can help manage anxiety and OCD behaviors.
  • Melatonin: Aids in regulating sleep patterns.

Dietary Interventions:

  • Anti-inflammatory Diet: Focus on whole foods, lean proteins, healthy fats, fruits, and vegetables.
  • Gut Health Maintenance: Dietary adjustments and probiotics support bowel health.

Holistic and Alternative Interventions:

  • Herbal Agents: Used for potential anti-anxiety or sleep-promoting effects.
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Addresses behavioral symptoms.
