Almost 50% of kids today are diagnosed with a chronic condition. 

Let that sink in. 

Some studies state that children today are expected to have shorter lifespans than their parents for the first time in history. 

So what’s causing this disruption in our modern world… and how do we start with an integrative approach to care for our kids? 

Pediatric expert and functional medicine practitioner Dr. Song joins me on the show today to help us parents become MORE proactive. So no matter what our kids are exposed to– their immune systems, brains, and microbiomes can learn how to bounce back and stay healthier for longer.

Don’t miss this episode for top recommendations on how diet, movement, and gut microbiome health can help your child remain free from chronic illness, and live a healthier, happier life!
