Are you dreading the cold and flu season? Of course, you want to avoid germs, but maybe you’re concerned about exposing your child to chemicals in hand sanitizers and cleaners?
It’s not like kids make it easy either.
They’re magnetically attracted to every germy, dirty thing. Whether it’s eating food off the floor or sharing a drink with their buddy — they’re going to get exposed to germs whether we like it or not.
But, we have a choice in how we view this behavior and that makes the differ…
One thing I know about children suffering from illness is that the road to wellness is not always smooth.
At some point, you’ll hit some speed bumps and it will feel like you’ve taken a couple steps back. Or you just hit a wall and nothing is working.
Our worries can turn into an obsession with our child’s health. We can spend late nights searching the internet for solutions or taking them to doctor after doctor trying desperately to find an answer, any answer.
ALL because we LOVE them so muc…
When it comes to resolving asthma, eczema, allergies and digestive problems, one of the common mistakes that parents make is not trusting that a food is a trigger.
When I talk to Moms most of the time they think they know what their child’s triggers are. They may narrow it down to a few foods.
But, no one wants to unnecessarily remove a food from their child’s diet. Isn’t it enough to reduce a trigger food? And what if the trigger food is healthy? What do you do then? Watch the video below to …
Are your children craving sugar and carbs?
It can be so frustrating to deal with their addiction because they will beg, plead, and even wear us down until we give in! Sound familiar? You are not alone!! So, what is the real cause of sugar & carb addiction? That’s what I’ll be addressing in the video below!
More Flow and Less Stress When Your Plan Your Week the Five Element Way
This idea to plan my week using the Five Elements came to me during an incredibly busy time in my life. I was writing my book while also working full time treating patients and providing pediatric training for acupuncturists. I felt like I was meeting my goals, but I wasn't living in a way that was aligned with how I wanted to feel everyday. I felt overworked and overcommitted with a web of obligation that w…
One of the things I love most about my work is being able to connect with parents and share timely advice, support, and tips for healing with Chinese medicine.

Is your life what you imagined it would be?
Have you ever felt like you're going along in life and suddenly realize that even though you're doing what you thought you should, it isn't making you happy anymore? Maybe you're exhausted. Or you're not happy in your marriage, job, or life situation. You're not the parent you want to be or the person you used to be. Even though you're doing what you (or others) think you should it's not filling your soul. There's not enough fun, rest, or play in you…
Is your child highly sensitive?
Is he easily affected by the emotions of others? Is he irritable or overstimulated after school? Is he highly fussy, picky, or dramatic? Does he have an “imaginary” friend? If so, chances are you have a highly sensitive child. Highly sensitive kids are here to usher in a new level of consciousness on the planet! But, they aren't the easiest kids to raise.
Learn the 7 things you need to about them in my guest blog post over at the Heal Your Life Blog.
Having a baby brings out the best and the worst in us!
It opens up our hearts to a whole new level of love. At the same time, it opens up our minds to a whole new level of worry, indecision, and doubt! How do we know if we're making the right decisions for our child, especially if they differ from what other parents are doing? Maybe the "cry it out" method worked for all your friends but was an epic fail for your baby. Or maybe you and your spouse disagree on how to handle picky eating or not…
