January 11, 2014- Today's Topics: Powassan virus and Strep biofilm study
Today's episode included the following topics:
*Parents decided on a night time reset after a very dramatic attempt at night training. Their daughter still does great during the day with pee and poop but has started to poop in night time diaper. What to do?
*Out of the blue accidents both at home and daycare for 28 month old little girl. Last time this happened, it coincided with strep and a yeast infection, though she seems to be well now. She will say she has to go potty but then won't go, only to have an accident.
*3 yo boy is waiting too long to go poop and almost always ends up having poop in his pants, though he finishes on the potty. He's having a rebellious stage in general with a new baby.
*22 month old boy did great in Block 1. As they progressed into Block 2, he has some pees in his pants. Suddenly, he's anti-all-things-potty. Is this a good situation for a reset?
*26 moth boy is doing great during the day but is NOT getting night training after many months. Is it okay to do a night time reset?
*Mom is starting a "poop camp"...she will be gently available for her daughter as her daughter works through the poop-dance-but-won't-release phase. Mom has questions how to best help during this transition.
*Parents have worked out a lot of kinks with the process and their daughter. But she's still only pooping about every 4 days. Any additional advice?
*Child who loves peeing so much that's all he wants to do. Little pees and a big production to empty the pot, wash, etc. Mom has a new baby and can't deal with all the hoopla around pee, especially how often it is. Child has a 13 month communication delay and usually verbal tactics don't work.

How's LIFE? Is it FULL of LAUGHTER? Is is FULL of JOY? Is it totally MUNDANE? Are we USING every PRECIOUS moment we have to LIVE? Are we saying it's GOOD TO BE ALIVE? How do we handle LIFE when BAD THINGS HAPPEN?
Meet Melinda Minton; a mother, a successful business woman, a world explorer, an author, a woman overflowing with laughter and a bi-lateral amputee. Listen to her story of flu-like symptoms that was found to be Necrotizing Fasciitis, a Strep A germ that kills more often than not. Her journey that includes: "death", a coma, listening to the doctors tell her she would lose part of her lips, part of her tongue, and her legs, the painful rehabilitation, the fitting of prosthesis, learning to crawl and walk again. And, most importantly, Melinda LAUGHS! She is able to say with all confidence, "IT'S GOOD TO BE ALIVE!"
Melinda Minton, author of RAW, extreme living, states on her website: "It is interesting that many respond to my physical presence as if I were a live, vibrant, running around, laughing two-footed creature and I am. It is only when they hear of a “disability” that their perspective changes. I like to live as if this were my last moment so attacking the joy that life so willingly offers has always been my only option. My children have aptly pointed out that if I ever need to I can take my legs off and use them for something…to dig a trench, self defense, to plant a tree or to place the foundation for something else that I am building."
Can healing the gut help heal PANDAS/PANS? Dr. Trifiletti and Marcel Cairo talk to Integrative Health experts, Dr. Sunjya Schweig and Nurse Practioner, Amy Smith, about healing the "second brain."
Dr. Schweig and Amy Smith practice Integrative Medicine in the Bay Area at Hill Park Medical Center.
Dr. Schweig's medical practice is focused on identifying and treating complex infections such as Lyme disease and coinfections as well as PANS/PANDAS/PITAND (strep, viral, Lyme, or other triggers that can cause acute neuropsychiatric illness in children and adolescents).
Amy Smith is a Nurse Practitioner specializing in Functional Medicine and heads up the integrative PANS / PANDAS Treatment Program of Hill Park Medical Center in Petaluma, California. She is the mother of an amazing 16 yr old with PANDAS and a dedicated PANDAS awareness advocate.
Join host, Marcel Cairo, and pediatric neurologist, Dr. Rosario Trifiletti, as they discuss the latest progress, controversies and therapies that make pediatric infection triggered neuropsychiatric disorders in children such a hot button in the world of medicine.
