Remember when it used to be ok to cough ...
With 4 kiddo’s between the ages of 2 and 11, I just wait for the attention that comes in a public place when one of my kids inevitably needs to cough, sneeze or sniffle. But this is not a blog on adult anxiety.
Of course, so much has changed over the past 2 and half years that a cough is now socially more intimidating...And not just from the “germ” aspect. For parents it means kids having to stay home from school, missing a game or concert, or even having to miss work yourself.
But while the public perception has changed, the immune system hasn’t.
So if your kids struggle with chronic coughs, allergies , sore throats, or infections during the fall and winter , I know this year is exceptionally hard.
That’s why I wanted to write this blog, heavy with science and immune principles to help parents with 2 main things.

It's almost here - Hope, Answers, Help! The Perfect Storm Live Workshop is happening this week! Even better, we get to treat you to dinner and drinks during it!
For thousands of parents over the last 12 years, this workshop has proven to be the final missing key to getting their child’s health and healing, and finally making sense of all their child’s struggles in the first place.
This is the most “complete” presentation on autism, sensory, behavior , focus, emotional, and chronic gut-immune challenges you’ll ever see.
But most importantly, the entire focus of this workshop is finding the best drug-free action steps and solutions to getting things finally moving forward for your child!
This workshop is about you, parents. Dinner and drinks will be provided, and we’ll save plenty of time for Q & A afterwards so you go home with everything you need to get an awesome plan of action for your child!...
It's a pretty accepted general rule that parents tend to run a bit closer to empty on the old gas tank. Then take that whole parenting thing, and apply the Perfect Storm layers of added stress to it where parents of children with autism, sensory challenges, anxiety, ADHD, chronic immune challenges, and special needs are flat out exhausted 24/7 trying to keep up.
There are so many doctors, specialists, and therapy appointments... mixed in with all the special diets, detoxes, and 294 supplements you're supposed to give your child each day.
We get it parents - you’re exhausted.
And you're also confused . Where does someone even start with 783 options and recommendations from one post in one Facebook Group?
We see it on your faces, in your posture, and on your HRV scans in the office.
We get you. We feel you. We got you. And, we have a plan!
Out of all the things you've researched , read , and...
Ok, everyone knows how to fill in the blank, right?
Move it or LOSE it…
But lose what? I remember as a kid, my parents used to use this line when I was sitting in front of my Xbox playing hours of NCAA Football dynasty mode. I always had a vision of my feet just shriveling up and falling off if I didn’t get up.
Now, that’s a quick pro-tip of how to get your kids off screens! But we all know scare tactics rarely work!
But seriously, what if you really did lose a powerful tool by not moving enough. Truth is, this is partially true. Your Brain is 100% fueled through your body's movement when the body is moving smoothly and efficiently.
Remember sitting through that zoom meeting, computer work, or long car ride? The first thing (after your leg falls asleep) that happens is that you start to feel distracted, get brain fog and you start to get physically tired out. Tired out without doing...
Love video - get the full "scoop on poop" and more above!
Love to read - we get real life, real practical, and real nerdy below!
The subject line of this blog contains the 3 main "jobs" a healthy baby is designed to do - eat, sleep, and poop !
Honestly, sticking with the "keep it simple" theme of the previous email in this "Raising Healthy Kids, Naturally" series... if your baby does those three things well, or did during their infant stage... they're on the right path to good health.
But as simple and cute as it sounds to rattle those off, there is quite a bit of intricate development and function that a baby needs to learn quite quickly to get up to speed on all those things all at once.
What's really quite cool is that each of those 3 jobs is controlled by one primary system in the body, and also 'connects' to one main area and nerve. Yep, we're talking about the Central Nervous System and brain stem area once...
It's a big decision to choose what "path" you want to take with the health of your child, so choosing the best doctor and health care team to guide that path is absolutely crucial. (PS: You'll want to keep reading to hear all about some awesome giveaways!!)
... and let you know a little secret that most people and parents don't know about health these days.
Health is actually super simple.
We really can break it down to these main 'Core 4' elements:
As we continue the series we'll now break down simple, practical, easy-to-implement steps for each of those Core 4 elements and also explain the science and reasoning behind each one!
Next up - nerding out with neurology...
