What my clients and colleagues have said…
13 year old boy with severe PANDAS/PANS
My son was treated by a good homeopath who had knowledge but little experience with PANDAS for 1 1/2 years. He had some gains but was still really sick. We switched to Stephanie Newton and within 2 months he was starting to live again. He had been homebound and raging for 4 years and now after 6 months treatment he is going out in public and enjoying life again. I wouldn’t bother with a homeopath that doesn’t specialize in your child’s condition.

Boy with PANS, anxiety, hyperactivity, tics, OCD, AND girl with anxiety, sensory issues, and hives
Stephanie made an immediate and impactful difference in our family. What I love most about her process is that it doesn’t rely on any “diagnosis” and it doesn’t matter if you’re still in the discovery phase of what’s ailing your child. Her remedies can help so much with day-to-day life while you’re still sorting everything out. She focuses on the behavior and feelings of the child and even considers how the mother’s past health and pregnancy could have impacted the current situation. Stephanie peels away the layers with precision and an amazing intuition, asking all the right questions and breaking down problems one at a time. She’s been there when we need her for occasional illnesses as well, and it’s been such a relief to have someone who is able to guide you during those stressful times. I have come to rely on Stephanie more than our “expert” physicians to heal my family.
Bridget, San Francisco Bay Area
Boy with PANDAS/PANS at puberty after 7 years of remission, Age 13, AND boy with tics and OCD, Age 14
Stephanie has worked with both of my boys for a few years (ages 14 and 13). I got to know her about eight years ago because her oldest and my youngest were experiencing the same symptoms, and saw the same integrative doctor. She was a trailblazer in homeopathy before me. I was really reluctant to try it, and finally did after I felt absolutely trapped on repeated courses of antibiotics, anti-inflammatory meds, anti-fungals, and antibiotics to treat clostridia. I finally took her advice, gave homeopathy a try with a well-known and respected homeopath, and had positive results. In the meantime, Stephanie was studying homeopathy herself, and once she started treated patients, I switched to her as our sole homeopath. Why? We were stuck in one place with the remedies recommended by our previous homeopath, and I felt so strongly that Stephanie, with her personal experience raising children experiencing the same symptoms I saw in my own children, was uniquely qualified to treat them. She successfully treated my oldest for tics and OCD, and recently she treated my 13 year old for severe anxiety (the worst I have seen) and obsessive thoughts concerning death and the afterlife. The remedies she recommended were spot-on, and she was absolutely correct in what eradicated his symptoms. I consulted with her a couple times for one month, but my child has been absolutely fine and stable since. Her insightfulness and personal experiences make her an invaluable resource and practitioner for kids with OCD, tics, and anxiety. I cannot be more thrilled with her treatment recommendations and help she has provided for our family!!! Highly recommend Stephanie!

Two teenage boys with Autism (one with learning disability)
He couldn’t find his school bus yesterday and instead of becoming a nervous wreck he called my husband and simply said, “Can you come pick me up? I can’t find my bus.” He was cool as a cucumber. No problems with his locker and there’s always a problem every year. He came home pretty calm and happy yesterday after his second day at school. My kids are making some nice progress!
He is doing ahhhhhhhhmazing!!!
I cannot believe how well he’s doing with his algebra. I mean he understands it, he’s able to use examples and do his homework independently which is unheard of. This is a first for him. He’s also been very independent with other subjects and time management. Very responsible with putting aside time to study this weekend for two quizzes that he had today (Tuesday). Usually I have to tell him to put aside time to study. Maybe the remedy you put me on is part of this dynamic too. I’m just not as concerned with his homework. His grades are really good so I’m just letting him take the reigns. I couldn’t be more pleased. He’s doing fabulous in swimming with juggling it all too. Thank You Thank You Thank You. I cannot stress how huge this all is.
I gotta tell you he’s doing some amazing things! He’s talking up a storm, following directions like a champ, and navigating his communication app on his iPad better than ever.
4 year old boy with Autism and Global Developmental Delay
Cognitively, it seems like he is understanding and talking more and more. He’s been doing pretty well in school and being friendly and social, the aggression is better. Overall mood has been better, not as upset in the morning with waking, more tolerant of his dad doing things for him (used to be only me). Playful and sweet with little brother. He really is doing quite well. Everyone has commented that this is the best they’ve ever seen him! He’s even developed a sense of humor about things. He still has a long way to go with language, but I’m really pleased with how well he is doing.
Angie Duncan, Castle Rock, CO
10 year old boy with ASD, OCD, separation anxiety, PANDAS/PANS
I am so grateful to Stephanie for coming alongside us on this difficult road. Stephanie not only helped my child become more stable, working tirelessly to be on top of his ever shifting needs, but she was available when they arose! It was so comforting to know when we had a need, I wasn’t waiting days to have someone assist. She partnered with me in my son’s health and that is HUGE. I am happy to report he has moved from a child who was hesitant to participate in life to a child who is healthier and more vibrant, stepping into life experiences with much more ease!

Woman with Severe Lyme Disease, Age 34Severe Lyme Disease Relieved with Homeopathy.
Rebecca S., Chatsworth, CA
Boy with Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, and PANDAS, Age 10 (and his mom with anxiety)
The days he takes the Kali fluor- the following day is when I see him happy and hyper and with a positive attitude and doing all his work. He was also able to keep it together when he was at a birthday party. He has only gone to the deep end on one occasion since starting the remedies…and he was able to come and tell me that he might have over reacted. I have been doing ok with my remedies, too. I do feel less stressed and able to let go of things.

Acute PANDAS Exacerbation ResolvedPANDAS Flare Resolved with Homeopathy Within Hours. Case Study with Suspected Cellulitis.
Former executive director of Pandas Resource Network
I have known Stephanie for almost 10 years and have closely followed her families painful journey and struggles navigating multiple medical mysteries. Not only did she find true healing for her own family through the use of homeopathy but she has been steadfast in continuing to broaden her knowledge base and helping many other families and children afflicted by PANDAS/PANS. Her intuition is key when it comes to unlocking the many layers/facets of illness as many have multiple layers of complexity that takes someone like Stephanie who is patient and persistent. She’s truly a kind, caring, old soul: a healer and a true friend.
Lynn Johnson, Virginia Beach, VA
35 year-old man with anxiety and high blood pressure:
I have always had good results with natural remedies and prefer this over more traditional medicine whenever possible. I was experiencing some stress/anxiety issues and I decided to give homeopathy a try. I contacted Stephanie and we started our consultation. Stephanie was great and very easy to talk with. Homeopathy is much more holistic than I realized, be prepared to learn more about yourself. The remedy Stephanie suggested made an immediate improvement in feelings of stress/anxiety and the underlying condition causing them. I was really quite impressed with how tailored the homeopathy experience was for me compared to a doctors’ visit and prescription. I would definitely recommend someone try homeopathy as a first line of defense rather than a last resort. You will be in great care with Stephanie as your guide.
Jamison E., Ft. Myers, FL
68 year-old woman with social anxiety, post-traumatic stress, depression and skin infection:
I have been under Stephanie’s care for a year and a half now, and not only are my anxiety and nightmares gone, but I want to go out with friends and family now! I no longer relive the violent trauma in my mind over and over (which I have been doing for years)…those thoughts are just gone! Also, my skin no longer itches. Stephanie helps me every time I get sick, she always knows just what to give me and has saved me from quite a few doctor appointments during this time. And recently she has been suggesting certain essential oils which have been tremendous for my abdominal discomfort. Also, I’m not entirely sure, but a year ago I was suffering from post-surgical complications due to a mistake that was made during abdominal surgery. The doctors went in to fix the mistake and they found that it had healed on its own and they said they had never seen such a thing…I am convinced that the remedies stimulated my body to heal itself! She simply has a gift from God!
