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 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!

Every year in January most of us take a fresh look and a fresh run at our health, but after the hot mess that was 2020... let's really rock it this year and get our health to the best it's ever been in 2021!

We got you, you got this! Your stress doesn't stand a chance in 2021 with us on your team!
To kick us off, let's start with where we all need to start, diving right into the most important aspect of our health and wellness - the Central Nervous System .
The focus of this email is the quote that is the foundation of our Perfect Storm workshop,...
This is a must read if you feel like your kiddo is constantly sick and you don't know why. If you're ready to see your child thrive, this story is for you!
"There is a saying in life that goes “one day we’ll look back at this and smile” and that very much applies to the story I’m about to tell you.
In 2015 at the tender age of 3, my oldest son, Colton, was diagnosed with “RSV” or restrictive airway disease. This diagnosis came after two long years of chronic sinus infections, coughs (which lasted months at a time) and restricted breathing, which, at it’s worst, landed us in the intensive care unit at a major hospital whose staff stood by - ready to perform an emergency throat trach as my son lie there, gasping for oxygen.
These are times that as a Mom are incredibly hard to relive. Even as I write the words of my story, the rush of fear, uncertainty and helplessness that I felt then come rushing back like taunting...
We’ve had a bit of a late start to spring here, but for many kids and families that hasn’t slowed down the congestion, irritation, allergies, and immune challenges from already kicking into high gear.
While we often hear of “seasons” for certain immune issues, the truth is that for many families their kids seem to battle recurring ear infections, non-stop sinus congestion, and chronic coughs almost all year round. They just can’t seem to “kick it” for good.
It all adds up to way too many trips to the pediatrician or even immediate care, and let’s be honest, those are not places we want to head to right now if we don’t really have to.
You’ve tried the antibiotics, have the inhalers, have gotten rid of gluten and dairy, and have a whole army of essential oils and supplements taking over your cabinets!
But, your child still struggles and can’t “kick it” no matter what you try.
If that’s your crew,...
