Our journey with PANDAS started when our daughter Alexis was 7 years old. A classmate of hers gave her strep, and while she successfully cleared the infection, she became a different kid overnight. Our family was quickly plunging into a deep deep darkness we didn’t know how to get out of. Thankfully, we found a pediatrician who was able to diagnose her pretty quickly- but it took us almost a year of trying various functional Medicine approaches including dietary changes can supplementation, even aggressive physical therapy before we found Resilience Naturopathic. We had worked with a classical homeopath during the year before finding RN, and saw little to no changes- but when I saw the success other families were having with Dr. Bahr, I knew this wasn’t a matter of expense. We couldn’t afford NOT to do this. Within one month of working with Dr. Pais, the rage began to significantly decrease from 5 hour long episodes each day to one. Then it was one rage that lasted 5 minutes. She hasn’t had one rage episode in over 15 months, and is now sleeping on her own, showering on her own, getting dressed by herself- she can even tolerate JEANS! She is no longer unable to complete minor everyday tasks like picking out her clothes or getting her backpack ready for school. She knows now how to regulate herself in the car while we are still working on the noise sensitivity- it is MUCH less disruptive. Last month, she had a low grade temp with a cold and our whole family rejoiced that her immune system is finally starting to work as it should. We are about 85% healed at this point and I can say that all of that is due to the brilliant and compassionate work that Resilience Naturopathic has done. Because of them, we have our daughter back
When we began our PANDAS journey with our 9 year old son I remember staying up late for countless nights on end searching for answers about treatment plans. I recall the many Facebook posts about homeopathy and my past feelings and beliefs that "we couldn't do it" or "it's not strong enough or real enough" to make our child well again. After eleven months of hell that were full of psychiatric hospitalizations and psych meds, antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, and IVIG we were facing a dead end. As a former critical care nurse I had a deep appreciation for mainstream medicine but that nagging voice inside me was saying it was time to step away from what I knew and lean into the fear of putting my faith into an older system of medicine that had proven to be so powerful for many other children and families that were suffering. The call to Resilience Naturopathic was one of the most pivotal phone calls of my life. It was that call where the healing process for our child and family began. From the first call we felt totally supported and cared for. Everyone from the office staff, advocacy officer, our doctor, and up to the CMO has been truly amazing! Resilience Naturopathic offers an incredibly valuable service and it's worth asking yourself what it will cost you to NOT make the call. They've helped to bring our son back, they've supported us through the process, and as a parent they've also improved my health with treatment. This to me is priceless and I will be forever grateful for their work. Resilience Naturopathic has transformed our lives and my hope is that parents will make this important call that can offer more than just hope.
We began our journey with Resilience Naturopathic about three years ago, after an already long health journey with our kids. Prior to finding this group, we had traveled the country, both physically and virtually, seeing various doctors - from Western medicine doctors to hippie doctors and everything in between (DOs, holistic, etc.). We had changed almost everything about our lives during a several year period, including our diets, supplements, cleaning supplies, and what we did and didn’t spray on our lawn. Our kids got a lot better. But not all the way. It was like there were about 10 pieces left to do in a big puzzle, and we just couldn’t find those remaining pieces. Then I read a book about homeopathy, and so many things clicked for me. I knew it was our answer. We worked with a general homeopath before we found this practice that specializes in PANS and PANDAS. And although the experience with the general homeopath did not allow us to achieve total healing, it showed me enough to know that homeopathy was going to be our key - because my kids had very clear responses to the remedies. So I was elated when I found this homeopathic practice that specializes in PANS and PANDAS. Our healing experience was not linear (they never are), and although there were periods that seemed rough, I always knew in my heart of hearts that our children could and would be healed through this care. And after a couple years, they were healed. We could not be more thankful and grateful for this wonderful group of doctors and staff. They gave us our children back and our lives back, and we will be eternally thankful.
Resilience Naturopathic came into our lives when I felt like all hope was lost, and I couldn’t possibly be more thankful! My son has had Pans/Pandas symptoms since age 4, and possibly beyond. In 2020, the symptoms became overwhelming and undeniable. Anxiety, panic attacks, severe eye blinking tic, compulsions, nausea, sleep issues, hallucinations and more. Doctors & specialists locally proved to be mostly uninformed and unable to help us, or even diagnose anything. Through my own research I learned my son likely had Pans/Pandas, and through the grace of God I was able to find Resilience Naturopathic and begin treatment using homeopathy. In the 9 months since we started with Resilience my son is currently 95% symptom free and a completely different child from last year. We will continue homeopathy until he is fully healed and believe he will be! I’ve even started homeopathy for myself! MB
Dr. Jenn worked with both me and my 6 year old daughter. Katie loved going to see her and she always made her feel safe. One time after we left she said ‘She listens to me, I like her.
Dr. Bahr is an amazing individual and a great doctor. Her knowledge is built on a foundation of genuine warmth and care for others. Her ability to support those in their healing process, physically, mentally, and emotionally, is hard to find in the medical community. As a patient, I felt like she connected with me heart to heart, she displayed her compassion both in character and poise, and she asked the questions other doctors had dismissed in order to find the reason why I was feeling the way I was. Her intuition is impeccable. I felt like she continually sought to understand me as a whole person and to formulate a treatment that was unique for me. She also explained what was happening within my body and how the treatment she was implementing would help address the cause for the imbalance I was experiencing.
Brian (name changed) is a changed boy. He is happy and hopeful and speaks about things he looks forward to in the future. I should also add that he completed 6th grade yesterday with straight As. He also has not seen or spoken with his father since January. Bullying at school and his father were two main contributing factors to his depression. He will begin a daily exercise program on Monday at the gym, which he’s looking very much forward to, which will also boost his confidence. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for providing such a wonderful service to my son. Your work is amazing and Brian is living proof of that. You knew exactly what to look for, what to ask, and exactly what to provide for his healing. I cannot thank you enough for helping Brian embrace life again
