    Raising Resilient Kids: Unlock the Magic of the Microbiome & Find the Stress Sweet Spot with Dr. Elisa Song #FabulousFriends

    In 2005, the New England Journal of Medicine predicted that, for the first time in history, our kids are expected to have shorter lifespans than us – their parents. To address this startling statistic and figure out how to help our kids be more happy and healthy, we're joined by Dr. Elisa Song, a Stanford, NYU, and UCSF-trained integrative pediatrician and pediatric functional medicine expert.
    Also a mother of two thriving children, Dr. Song has dedicated her career to helping parents and practitioners bridge the gap between conventional and holistic pediatrics with an evidence-based, pediatrician-backed, parent-approved approach.
    Acknowledging the rise in mental health issues and chronic illnesses in the younger generation, we tackle the tough conversation around how to help our kids make better food choices and manage stress to support their gut health and overall wellbeing. From dissecting the impact of diet choices to connecting the dots between stress and gut health, Dr. Song offers research-backed practical strategies for nurturing resilience in children and encouraging informed food choices.
    Through empowering discussions on nutrition education, stress management techniques, and navigating the influence of the food industry, this episode will give parents a guide to teaching their children tools for living their most healthful and happy lives.
    If you're a parent who wants to know that you're doing everything you can to help your kids be well and stay well, look no further. Dr. Song has you covered with her practical, proven steps to raising resilient kids one microbiome at a time. For more information and support on this topic, make sure to preorder Dr. Song’s new book, Healthy Kids, Happy Kids.
