She explained how so many headaches, and tummy aches are caused by emotional and mental health issues, and we had a comprehensive discussion on how she treats them. We discussed the biggest factor affecting children and teens these days and what to do about it, and why it was important for her as a pediatrician to also prioritize her wellness in many ways, including working with a professional coach and prioritizing living as her most authentic self through her own healing and growth.
