Thursday, October 19, 2023, 1:00-2:00pm ET: House Call

Featuring Madiha Saeed MD, Director of Education of the Documenting Hope Project.

Here’s what was talked about:

The Documenting Hope conference starts in a few weeks and runs from November 10-12, 2023. Our discounted room rate is only valid through November 3.

A mom whose 10-year-old daughter is known to have PANS and has done the Cunningham panel. Daughter has now tested positive for a past infection of Lyme disease, Borrelia only. Mom is now reading Almost Autism and Brain Under Attack for the third times. She now understands that underlying toxicity and stress are major causes for infection expression.

  • Dr. Madiha: Read Daren Ingels book: The Lyme Solution: A 5-Part Plan
    • Stick with the basics to build immunity: Sleep, stress, gut health, social, spiritual,
    • Less is more when detoxing. Keep detox pathways open. Make sure child is not constipated. Try Epsom salt baths, dry brushing and exercise
    • Basic supplements: Vitamin D, probiotics, omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, zinc, curcumin. Go low and slow when adding in new supplements. Take probiotics away from antibiotics or anti-microbials. Vitamin D level of 70 is optimal.

Another mom wonders if Dr. Madiha has seen clinical evidence that bitters and ginger can correct upper GI symptoms such as bloating and gas after meals.

Another mom’s son was diagnosed with PANS, then autism. Son is 10 years old. The gluten-free, dairy-free diet with organic foods helped a lot, but she is wondering about what to do next.

  • Shandy: Look at Healing Handbooks
  • Maria: Check out the different steps in the Healing Trail Map.
  • Another mom suggested taking one step at a time. The IgG food panel helped a lot as well as the mapping out of functional genomics.
  • Another mom recommended Holly Wurtz who did the IntelxxDNA genomics test and the Gut Zoomer test. She’s very approachable.
  • Maria: Be sure to check out the practitioner directory as well as our page on eating a clean diet and the elimination diet.

Another mom saw a big change in her child after simply removing the maple syrup they were having twice a week.

Another mom wonders if fruit is bad and if the first course of action is a functional lab test.
