If you listen to my show you’re aware that the rates of allergies, asthma, and obesity, plus neuro-developmental disorders like autism, ADHD, anxiety and depression are skyrocketing. Studies show that infertility is also on the rise.
And if you’ve read my book Super Natural Home, you know about the toxins we often unwittingly expose ourselves to through our household and skincare products, our outside and indoor air, our food and water, and how we can best reduce our exposure, along with the effects of stress that impacts our health and well being.
In this show, I speak with Dr. Julia Getzelman, a San Francisco-based, board certified pediatrician and member of the American Academy of Pediatrics. She is a rare breed of doctors who believes that many factors contribute to health and illness: nutrition, physical activity, emotional/psychological stresses and the environment. She has a special interest in how nutrition and intestinal health contribute to overall wellness, and has additional training in Functional Medicine, homeopathy and applied nutritional biochemistry, also known as food as medicine. Dr. Getzelman, founded GetzWell Pediatrics in 2008 with a passionate commitment to bring integrative pediatrics to San Francisco.
