Tummy Troubles: Pesticides, the Microbiome and Kids
With 54% of American children now suffering from a chronic disease, issues relating to the gut are commonplace in every household. As integrative practitioners, holistic health begins with the gut and our children are under assault. From the chronic usage of antibacterial soaps in school and clinics, heavy metal exposures, EMF and looming 5G technology as well as toxic industrial food, they are indeed under siege.
This lecture will explore the unique aspect of the microbiome in kids, the ingredients of the toxic soup they are exposed to and why they are suffering from dysbiosis and the health sequelae which western medicine has been slow to acknowledge. Clinical applications will be offered to recover their microbial communities.
