In this insightful interview, Dr. Crista delves into the intricacies of PANDAS (associated with strep) and PANS (linked to various infections), conditions known to significantly alter behavior and affect the brain. This results in changes to how the brain works, thinks, processes information, and feels. Join Ann Louise and Dr. Crista as they explore the triggers, symptoms, and treatments, including the vital importance of addressing the nasal passages in managing these conditions. Dr. Crista, a Naturopathic Doctor trained in integrative medicine, combines medical interventions with natural medicine in a comprehensive approach.
