How streptococcus bacteria can affect the brain

Listen on: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts

Today on Connect My Brain we’re going to be looking at another case study. My hope is that these studies will help you understand how everything is connected and hopefully give you a starting place if you’re going through something similar with your child. In today’s case study, I’ll be sharing about a patient of mine who had a history of the streptococcus bacteria but who came in to seek help for their ADHD. When I see strep in somebody’s history, I always want to get a strep antibody test and when I ran this child’s numbers, they were through the roof. In this episode, I will talk about how the immune system gets developed and explore the link between strep and neurological disorders.

In this episode, we cover:

  • Red flags in the patient’s history
  • What I found in the assessment
  • Why some people get sick and others don’t
  • Connecting the dots – how strep can chronically influence our brains
