Here at Boob to Food we are SO passionate about supporting gut health, and with good reason. But we get a lot of questions about why this is important, how to do it, and what to do if your child ever needs antibiotics or other medication that may upset their delicate microbiome. So in today’s episode we hand over to the brilliant Dr Elisa Song do break it down for you!
Dr. Elisa Song, MD is an integrative paediatrician, paediatric functional medicine expert, and mum to 2 children. In her integrative paediatric practice, she’s helped 1000s of kids get to the root causes of their health concerns and helped their parents understand how to help their children thrive – body, mind, and spirit – by integrating conventional paediatrics with functional medicine. Dr. Song created Healthy Kids Happy Kids as an online holistic paediatric resource to help practitioners and parents bridge the gap between conventional and integrative paediatrics with an evidence-based, paediatrician-backed approach.
