Episode Highlights with Dr. Roseann


  • Over the course of clinical interactions with children who were not reacting well to normal treatment and therapy, Dr. Roseann discovered neural feedback.

  • Stress in children manifests as sleep problems, GI issues, and needs for reassurance.

  • Worried thoughts are a red flag to look out for in our children.

  • Generationally, with each subsequent generation, autism and in general, low-tolerance for anxiety, is on substantial rise.

  • Protecting our children from all adversity prevents them from learning the coping mechanisms necessary for dealing with the pressures of life.

  • Co-regulation means our kids regulate their stress according to how we as parents are regulating our own stress.  Managing our own stress will directly impact how our children regulate themselves.

  • Neural therapy – every time there is a healthy brainwave combination, the equipment provides reinforcement.  Most people do about 40 sessions of neural therapy.  Neural therapy is highly efficacious for anxiety, traumatic brain injuries, and many more conditions.

  • Neural therapy can be used for autism as well.  In autism, oftentimes there are neural networks that are hyper-connected, and others that are hypo-connected.  Neural therapy can be used to balance these.

  • When people eat an anti-inflammatory diet, change occurs easily in the brain.

  • OCD is the brain’s response to anxiety.

  • PANS = Pediatric Acute Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (can also have onset in adulthood)

  • PANDAS = Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Streptococcal infection. 

  • Autoimmune encephalopathy 

  • Must get the infection under control, as well as the inflammation, and detoxify the body, while calming down the nervous system.

  • If you notice your child acting differently or have cause for concern, find a provider, preferably a naturopathic doctor or functional medicine doctor

  • Aspire.care and Epidemicanswers.org will have a list of providers

  • If you child has a sudden onset of a mental health challenge, find a knowledgeable provider immediately, preferably someone familiar with Lyme and/or PANDAS.

  • Kids with PANS often have opposite reactions to medications.

  • Per the National Institute of Mental Health, it takes an average of 11 years to get help for a mental health problem.  If you see ADD, anxiety, OCD, or other symptoms in your children, get some help!
