Episode 95

Bulletproof Your Kids Immune System

With Integrative Pediatrician Dr. Joel Gator Warsh

Kids these days are getting sick more often with common infections, such as colds, sore throats and strep, coughs, ear infections, sinus infections, and the flu. Why is that?

 

Today on The Broken Brain Podcast, I’m joined by my good friend Dr. Joel Gator Warsh to talk about why our children are having chronic immune system problems. We discuss The Seeds of Health: stress, exercise, environment, diet, and sleep and how each seed impacts our overall health. We also talk about the best natural immune boosters for kids that may help decrease the frequency and severity of sickness.
