This is the question many of us are asking! There is a grave health crisis that is affecting the next generation. In increasing numbers, children and young people are struggling with allergies, eczema, inflammatory conditions, autism, autoimmune disorders, asthma, reflux, sensory issues, GI issues, ADHD, and more. In today’s episode, Beth Lambert describes the “perfect storm” that is assailing our children’s health. She also has several ideas in how to navigate that storm.
Beth has an M.A. from Fairfield University, with a concentration in American Healthcare. The mother of three young children, Beth’s interest in health concerns grew as she dealt with her own daughter’s “leaky gut.” Conventional medicine didn’t have answers beyond some therapies and pharmaceutical drugs. Beth wanted something more.
She overhauled her family’s diet and their environment and was able to turn her daughter’s health around in approximately nine months. Her eyes were opened to the need around her, as she observed that other families were also in crisis related to their children’s health issues. She went on to do extensive research and is now the author of “A compromised generation.” You will be encouraged by Beth’s story and the health improvements of others that she recounts, who are a part of her “Documenting Hope” project.
Listen closely and learn what steps you can take to improve your own health and that of the next generation.
