You’re not alone. I’m a doctor and still didn’t know what to do when my kids were born. There’s so much conflicting information out there in an increasingly toxic world. From what to feed them to how we handle colds and flus, there’s a lot of room for panic and bad decisions. I don’t know about you but mine didn’t come with an instruction manual. Of course, the grandparents think they know it all, but the world has changed so fast that the wisdom of elders isn’t enough. We need science and tradition.
Enter the “Raising Healthy Kids” course. I set out to find the answers as my wife and I scratched our heads, one flu at a time. I enlisted two of the top holistic pediatricians in the world to help us film this course. It’s robust, informative, easy to follow, and chock full of healthy wisdom you need for your kids.
The two pediatricians we tapped have vast experience in the field. Working in Los Angeles and San Francisco, they’ve seen it all and have helped many families stay healthy in a world filled with new bugs and too much screen time. We dove straight into the core issues that are affecting most parents of younger children and they’ve provided additional resources for our students. This course is a treasure trove for anyone who’s got kids under eighteen.
If you’ve got kids at home, you’re going to have issues come up. That’s just a fact of life. They bring home bugs and lose sleep and so do we. It impacts the whole family and sets us back for weeks. The loss of sleep, productivity, and quality of life can really hurt your family life and career. Let’s intercept this pattern and avoid lots of unnecessary pain by preventing illness where possible and healing faster when we do get sick.
If you’re ready to feel more confident that you’re doing the right thing for your kids, you’re in the right place. If you are tired of the frustration of missing school and events over too many recurring colds and flus, you’re home. If you want the best for your children and are unsure what to feed them and how to think about supplements, we’ve got your back.
Rest assured that there’s help and you don’t need to go it alone. It’s time to tap into the knowledge and wisdom of two of the best pediatricians who are here to teach you how to navigate these choppy waters. It can make all the difference in the world and save you lots of unnecessary pain and suffering.
Welcome to the “Raising Healthy Kids” course. You’re in good hands.
The human body is amazing and a child’s immunity is a force of nature. In this module, we learn how to build resilience and prop up your child’s energy and immunity so they can stay healthy through all the ups and downs of life.
Pink eye is common with children. In this module we learn how to avoid it and how to treat it if it does come home with your kids. There are healthy ways to combat this condition
You can tell your kids are having emotional swings when their tummy isn’t working right. In this module we learn how to enhance digestion and keep their gut lining healthy. Food to avoid and toxins to be avoided are just part of this learning.
Fevers are the worst. Nobody sleeps. There’s pain, suffering, and fear. In this module, we explore the best ways to deal with fevers when they come. We need to know when to be worried and when to allow the kid’s system to fight it out.
Unfortunately, not all kids are easy. If you’ve got a picky eater, this module will help you navigate those choppy waters. They need calories and nutrients so we explore strategies to get them nourished without the drama.
The body is designed to detoxify all the time but the modern world is already overloading our children with chemical and heavy metals that don’t belong. In this module, we explore how to boost your child’s detox pathways and how to keep them on and cranking.
Not all germs are bad and the incessant use of biocidal agents is backfiring on us. In this module, we review what’s safe for kids and how to think about hygiene and sanitation in the modern world.
We’re being overrun by the media and our kids’ brains are especially susceptible to light, sound, and EMF pollution. In this module we explore how to minimize these invaders and get our children doing healthier activities.
70% of our immunity lines the gut and in the developing systems of our children, there’s a lot of room for improvement. Here, we discuss how to heal the gut and keep it that way. We have a chance to save our children from much of the grief we’ve faced in our generation but we need to start now.
There’s a lot of misinformation out there about vaccines. In this module, our two pediatricians have a frank and respectful discussion about the challenges with vaccines and who may need to be careful with them.
This module takes a deeper dive into several other conditions that our kids may face growing up. By no means can we cover everything but the docs get into the major ones and what to do about them.
ENT infections are all too common in our kids. In this module we discuss how and why we’re suffering with them so often and what we can do to clear these issues- both acutely and in terms of prevention.
Many ENT infections lead to coughs and then nobody is sleeping. Let’s discuss how to look at coughs and what to do when in terms of treatment. Not all coughs are dangerous and we need to know what to listen for in our kids.
Sometimes the kids can’t sleep. They obviously need it to heal and grow so what can we do to calm their minds and let them settle into a deeper sleep? Our pediatricians dive into the realm of sleep and help us solve this problem.
This module features a special guest who uses osteopathy and visceral manipulation to help children with a variety of conditions that most doctors give up on. Dr Gill is a “go-to” referral for one of our docs and she introduces us to how bone and tissue structure may lead to many issues.
