The Unwellness Gap™
The #1 Factor that's Usually Overlooked in Chronic Pediatric Ailments
Since I joined the team as the adult and pediatric health specialist at Detox Rejuvenation I've been having a lot of conversations with parents.
Many of these parents are doing all the right things…Maybe you can relate to this?
They've already gone gluten-free and dairy-free, they don't let their kids eat sugar. They don't eat a bunch of preservatives, artificial colors or flavors. They don’t let their kids eat Takis even when they beg!
They're eating organic.
They're very carefully choosing…
Is your child still struggling?
Is your child struggling with a mental, emotional, or health condition?
Are they having emotional or behavioral issues that you're concerned about? Or a health problem like asthma allergies, eczema, ADHD, or autism?
You are not alone!
By the age of 16, approximately 54% of children have a chronic illness diagnosis.
BY THE AGE OF 16.
I find this statistic incredibly troubling. When I started my career in pediatrics, I thought I was on the front edge of reversing these trends.
Yet, they don…
Exhausted Moms - Do This First to Heal Your Child
Throughout this week, I've been sharing the root causes and hidden stressors™ that are causing our children to fall sick. It's only natural for parents to want to jump in immediately and give their full attention to their kids.
But, I want to pause here for a sec and ask a very important question. How can we, as parents, heal our kids if we're not well ourselves?
When we're exhausted, depleted, and running on fumes trying to add more on top of our already full to-do list creates overwhelm, whi…
Toxic Childhood: When Did Chronic Illness in Kids Get So Norm
When did chronic illness in children get so normalized?
Just 40 years ago, conditions like asthma, ADHD, autism, food sensitivities, eczema, and allergies were rare.
Nowadays, setting up a playdate involves a complete medical history, allergy list, and epi-pen instructions. 🤪
1 in 3 kids suffer from the issues listed above. Probably more. Maybe your child is struggling with one, too?
It's not that we're more aware of the issues now - the incidence of these illnesses has increased over time.…
Could this be the missing piece to healing your child from chronic illness?
After being in the pediatric field for over 18 years now, I've noticed some alarming trends.
Kids are sicker than ever.
By the age of 16, 54% of children have a chronic illness diagnosis.
I was really hoping that by this point in my career I'd have good news on this front, but things are only getting worse.
And even more concerning…
The tools we use to help kids heal are becoming less and less effective.
A great example of this was a gluten free/dairy free diet, previously created huge im…
Chinese Medicine Germ Theory
Coronavirus (and other pathogens) are scary. COVID-19, in particular, has already killed thousands worldwide and infected over a million.
It's a tragedy that people have lost their lives, and we ought to do everything we can to mitigate its spread.
It's important to follow the health guidelines you receive from your local government officials to help keep yourself and your family safe.
But... in this video, I share a coronavirus perspective you may not have heard.
A piece of the conversation…
The #1 Thing to Do if Your Child is in the Unwellness Gap
Does your child suffer from frequent illnesses or health conditions like loose stools, allergies, asthma, eczema, constipation, stomachaches, sleeping problems, anxiety, and hyperactivity?
These problems often warrant repeated visits to doctors, but there’s no cure – only symptom management. These kids have fallen into what I call, The Unwellness Gap ™. You can read all about it here. I know first hand how frustrating it is to watch your child suffer! You wa…
Has Your Child Fallen Into the Unwellness Gap?
Have you been told to ride out your child’s illness or worse… wait for him to outgrow it?
That’s exactly what I was told when Western medical treatments weren’t working for my son’s severe eczema. If you’re like me, you want to help your child heal now. You want relief sooner rather than later, and you’re ready to do whatever it takes. Millions of children fall into the Unwellness Gap(TM) because they’re not totally sick, but they’re not totally well, either. They suffer from frequent illnesses…
