On today's episode of The Toxin Terminator podcast we are joined by Dr. Scott Antoine. Known as “The PANDAS Doc”, he is a board certified physician in emergency medicine, functional medicine, and integrative medicine, as well as a veteran.
Tune in as Dr. Antoine takes us through his own personal story with PANDAS syndrome, what PANDAS is and what to look for, and his opinions on the healthcare system.
Find out about:
· What PANDAS syndrome is and it's links to immune compromising issues
· The signs and symptoms of PANDAS and how it's diagnosed
· Physician burnout, the problems with an insurance based system, and medical mediocrity
· The 5 steps to the “fully functional approach”
· Ways to reduce toxins and increase your body's ability to detoxify
“You'll hear parents say that commonly, they felt like their child was gone and replaced by an alien or another child.”
“They did a study and found that 58% of parents of kids with PANS or PANDAS had been ridiculed at some time or told they were crazy and there was nothing wrong.”
“As a caretaker, whether you're a parent, or a brother, or a sister, or a physician, you have to pay attention.”
“The enemy in this story is the modern medical model.”
“Your immune system's job is to test what comes into you.”

As we discuss recharging our bodies, I have to tell you that using these two essential oils have been a lifesaver for my adrenals!! I find nutmeg to irritate my skin on it's own, so I use a bit of coconut oil. Apply 1-2 drops of NUTMEG
over adrenals (found on mid back just about an inch on either side of your spine) first thing in the morning. I then apply a drop of ENDOFLEX
over my thyroid and a drop or two over my adrenals as well! Check out the picture below. The adrenal glands are the yellow on top of the kidneys. Need to get some of these oils? CLICK HERE TO GET STARTED
