Brain Under Attack is an ambitious undertaking for even the most savvy physicians and scientists regarding the increasing prevalence of neuro-autoimmune disorders (PANS) now facing our children. With statistics indicating that as many as 1 in 200 children are now affected with PANS, parents will again be challenged with a condition of significant disabling severity, with a paucity of resources for assistance. This book provides the reader with the necessary tools to help their affected children via the provision of an excellent overview, case studies, opinions from experts, resources and glossary of terms in a compelling, parent-friendly format, while being current with the latest information available from the field of integrative medicine. An up-to-date laboratory assessment on how to test for PANS is also discussed. Kudos to Lambert and Rickert-Hong for bestowing this handbook for parents and practitioners alike!

Brain Under Attack is a must read for anyone working in the health care sector with children. PANS almost always appears suddenly. When this happens, health care providers need to be able to recognise it straight away and know what to do next. Brain Under Attack provides enough scientific detail to make this a useful reference book for medical professionals. More importantly, it also reaches out to parents whose children have been afflicted by PANS, giving them the knowledge, tools, networks and resources they need to support their children. Brain Under Attack empowers parents to support their children in their recovery from PANS!
