About The Book

Written from Personal Experience

What if we haven't been told everything about PANDAS/PANS? What if there is more? What if there was an alternative method to support complete and lasting recovery?

This comprehensive book - PANDAS Hope for Healing answers these questions and much more. It is a practical tool to help you rescue your child from the diagnosis of PANDAS/PANS. Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Strep is a debilitating disorder that currently affects one out of two hundred children. It’s a frightening diagnosis and condition that can literally change the life of a child and their parents overnight.

We know because we lived this nightmare. The fear and uncertainty of searching for recovery is something we know well. We also know what it is like to suffer in silence. We are neither doctors nor healthcare providers. We are parents of a child diagnosed with PANDAS who fought for his recovery and, thankfully, won the battle. Our son completely recovered from PANDAS, and has lived PANDAS free for close to 10 years. This book is his true story of healing and the story of how we got here.

PANDAS/PANS Does Not Have to be Permanent

It is a product of ten years of personal research, reading everything I could find, and asking more questions than I can count. It is part personal journal and part reference guide. I wrote it to help bring awareness and practical solutions to this condition that is affecting way too many children and to bring you hope. This book is meant to tell you our true story of real recovery, to help open your mind to alternative wellness, and to provide you with hope that PANDAS/PANS does not have to be permanent for you either if you give the body the tools to put this disorder, back in order. If you are like so many others and your child is still languishing and has not received recovery through the conventional medical route, I encourage you to read this book.

This book is for you if you or someone you know is living with a child with PANDAS/PANS, you are ready to fight for your child’s recovery, or you just need some encouragement and an infusion of hope. This is our true story of real recovery, renewal, and restoration. This is our story of PANDAS HOPE for HEALING.

Book Reviews


"PANDAS Hope for Healing is a must-read book for parents with children suffering from PANDAS and PANS. The Cook’s true story of recovery, renewal, and restoration is deeply sincere and thought-provoking and will draw you in right from the first page. It’s like a bible for all things PANDAS. I wish this resource was available when my son suffered from PANDAS at a young age. It is full of comprehensive information that I’ve never seen before. With heartfelt transparency, personal experience, and inspiration, William Cook imparts wisdom that can only come through a parent who has walked through diagnosis to recovery and lived to tell about it. What a gift that William and Joann Cook are sharing through this book with the world." —C. Bruno, Physical Therapist and, LMT


“William’s story is, at first, heartbreaking, then it is compelling, and ultimately it is deeply redemptive. This book is more than educational. For those who take its lessons to heart, as my family and I did, it can be life-changing. It’s unfortunate that many medical practitioners simply overlook the powerful benefits of essential oils, which radically transformed the life of Will’s family—and my family too.” —L.  Gettman Doctor of Pharmacy


“I strongly urge you to read this book. It will open your mind to new possibilities in healing. As part of our Western culture, we are taught to trust pharmaceuticals as the answer to all our healthcare needs. But as a holistic healthcare professional, I have learned that if we work with the inherent recuperative healing powers of the body, then we can observe how the human body is innately designed to heal itself. Essential oils can and will elicit natural responses in the body, thus stimulating its innate ability to heal.” —Dr.  Michael Sredniawski  DC


“As a speech-language pathologist, I was shocked to find my child displaying neurological decline after an infection. Confronted with an illness that fell outside the textbooks, I was forced to dig further for solutions. William and Joann Cook taught me how to support my child’s healing by using essential oils. Not one to follow blindly, I dusted off my research skills and discovered these oils actually had antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and other properties. The Cooks have taken their personal suffering and triumph and selflessly used their experience to help thousands. This book is the next step in their journey of bringing Hope and Healing to those who so desperately need it. I encourage you to read it.” —Bella Katz CCC-SLP, Certificate of Clinical Competence for Speech-Language Pathologists


“In this book, William Cook inspires us to take a fresh look at alternative wellness and the body’s powerful ability to heal itself. I have no doubt PANDAS Hope for Healing will become the “go-to” guidebook for PANDAS/PANS wellness. As a registered nurse who is masters prepared and board-certified in medical-surgical nursing, I am impressed by the research data compiled at the NIMH and NIH regarding essential oils and their ability to support healing in the body. The lack of evidence supporting long-term antibiotic use for PANDAS/PANS makes essential oils a possible safe and effective alternative. I am even more impressed by the Cook’s story of recovery. Their story compels me as a medical provider to open up my thinking, step out of my paradigm, and take a fresh look. William Cook combines deep faith and inspiring hope with practical solutions to support the body to do the job it was created to do. I highly recommend this book to all those who have a child diagnosed with PANDAS/PANS and to all who are in pursuit of healing and well-being. You need to get it, read it, embrace it, and let it change your life". —L. Douglas MSN, RN, BC


PANDAS Hope for Healing was an invaluable resource to me in a time I needed it the most. William and Joann Cook offered a sound explanation of how essential oils worked, how to use them, and what research they had read. Most of all, they listened as parents. Using natural therapies empowers you as a parent to heal your child naturally and helps to get to the source of the problem and not just treat symptoms.” —Brenna Hatami, RN, ND, Registered Nurse & Naturopathic Doctor
