    Pride, Predictability and Play: Discussing Social-Emotional Learning During Isolation with Dr. Trenna Sutcliffe

    At this point in the pandemic, most folks are feeling the effects of extended isolation. Spending the vast majority of time at home for months on end takes its toll, especially on kids and teenagers who are used to spending ample amounts of time with their peers. So how do we ensure that their social and emotional development continues while most children are attending school remotely?
    Dr. Trenna Sutcliffe of the Sutcliffe Clinic joins us today to share her favorite methods for encouraging healthy emotional learning, which is just as vital as keeping up with an academic curriculum. Learning tools that support emotional regulation, healthy self-image, and a strong sense of empathy are best modeled and encouraged by parents first and foremost, and being home provides abundant opportunities to tune into your child’s needs, spend quality time together and play a part in their emotional development through setting positive examples. Listen in and learn specific ways to implement behavior modification and social-emotional growth that will benefit your child well into adulthood.

    Real Foods, Real Health: Discussing Kid’s Nutrition with Nora LaTorre of Eat Real

    Real Foods, Real Health: Discussing Kid’s Nutrition with Nora LaTorre of Eat Real

    Though it may not be making big headlines, we are in the midst of a children’s health crisis. More kids are experiencing high blood pressure, and a host of other issues, than ever before. In addition, the global pandemic has left one in four children with food insecurity, meaning it’s impossible to know where their next meal will come from. Couple that with the fact that 30 million kids depend on school meals for breakfast and lunch, and it becomes clear that the descent into the common use of processed foods is a major culprit in the decline of children’s health. 
    A cause close to Dr. Greene’s heart, Eat Real works to transform the health of kids and the planet by making a return to wholesome, real foods. CEO Nora LaTorre joins us today to share why nutrition is one of the most overlooked aspects of health, and how we can change that. Eat Real is actively working to shift the health trajectory by making nutrition accessible to everyone, and you can help them in reaching their goals!

    Quotes
    “Whenever you look at a child, everything you see is either built out of the food that they eat, or built out of the food that mom ate when expecting. And so it’s the building block of their life, it’s the fuel for what they do, it’s the ingredients and medicines for repairing their body. It’s really central to health.” [01:05]
    “How kids eat during childhood changes how long they’re likely to live. What a gift it is to give kids what I call nutritional intelligence.” [02:37]
    “It is possible for schools to fix the state of school food and move from [the] very processed food that’s happened over the last 30 years back to real food.” [06:55]

    A Is For Allergy: Ending Food Allergies with Dr. Kari Nadeau

    A Is For Allergy: Ending Food Allergies with Dr. Kari Nadeau

    Today as our guest we have Dr. Kari Nadeau, renowned physician and director of the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research at Stanford University. With food allergy rates more than tripling in the last twenty years, many parents want to know what is contributing to this phenomenon, and what can be done to prevent and treat food allergies... Luckily there are many simple changes parents can make to help prevent them. And for those children (and adults) who do have food allergies, there are now exciting treatments to end food allergies. 
    And, parents, there is no reason, Dr. Nadeau reminds us, to feel guilty about food allergies.

    Quotes
    “We’ve seen…the hospitalization rates [for food allergies] at least triple in the last couple of decades, and maybe even quadruple or more. It used to be that you didn’t necessarily know a child with a severe food allergy, and now most people do.” [02:18]
    “Nowadays in the U.S. about 1 in 13 children have a doctor’s diagnosis of food allergy. That’s two in every classroom.” [03:08]
    “Unfortunately, less and less people are outgrowing [allergies]. It used to be thought that 80%...of children with milk or egg allergies would grow out of it by the time they were 18, but now that’s less. Only about 50% are growing out of it, so there’s something different in our environment.” [05:29]
    “It really is good news in a backwards way that this [allergy] epidemic is caused by environmental changes, because that means we can make environmental changes and reverse it.” [21:36]

    Nectar of the Gods: Olive Oil and its Countless Health Benefits

    Nectar of the Gods: Olive Oil and its Countless Health Benefits

    Cardiologist, Steven Gundry, says with levity “The only purpose of food is to get olive oil into your mouth.” Dr. Greene and Agatha don’t go that far in their praise of EVOO, but they do share their unbridled adoration of this “healthy fat” with its unparalleled polyphenol content, antioxidant function, anti-inflammatory properties, and its link to improved HDL levels and cardiovascular health.
    With all the amazing benefits EVOO offers, from diet to skin and hair care, it’s no wonder olive trees have been cultivated in the Mediterranean since before the dawn of the written word. They also paint a beautiful picture of the La Furtuna Estate, located in the heart of the Mediterranean, where the organic olives are grown, pressed and bottled for Bambini Furtuna.

    Quotes
    “Interestingly, it’s not an accident that every country in the Mediterranean basin has olive trees, because the original definition of the Mediterranean basin is the countries that support the growth of olive trees.” [05:03]
    “There have been studies looking at country-level consumption of olive oil and overall health, and the higher the olive oil consumption of the country in general, the higher the overall health…in particular the cardiovascular disease is better.” [07:56]
    “When it comes to food, one of the best things we can do is choose foods that our grandmothers would have recognized.” [12:22]

    The Dawn of The Next Normal: When Will the Pandemic End?

    The Dawn of The Next Normal: When Will the Pandemic End?

    Whether it’s in the front of your mind or on the back burner, most people have been wondering if there’s an end to the pandemic in sight. We all want to know when we’ll be able to freely gather with family and friends once again, and when it will be safe for our children to return to school. 
    With over 34 million cases of COVID worldwide up until this point, Agatha and Dr. Greene take a look at current data regarding COVID rates, hospitalization, and outlooks for a vaccine in order to determine when we might be able to go about our lives without the need of a mask. While it still may take a while for that to happen, the good news is that there are a lot of things we can do to keep ourselves safe, which not only keeps us healthy, but will also contribute to the overall decline of the pandemic at large.

    “We get to invent this next normal. We can think about what we’ve learned that’s important to us, and how we want to get together and the things that we’re missing, and create a future that’s pretty cool.” [18:32]

Good Team — The way it’s supposed to be!

Doctors know so much about kids’ health. Parents know so much about their own kids. It’s when they work together that the best info comes out. Good job, Agatha and Dr. Greene

Momentumcon ,

UGH, Hilaria Baldwin

I feel SO bad for the hosts on the episode, “There’s no place like Om.” That shrill, high pitched baby voice droning on and on about HERSELF! And lying about having been pre-med in college (she wasn’t), and that she cooks 3 times a day for her kids (her nannies cook), and acting like she’s a nutrition expert when she purges after she eats. And don’t forget her whole appropriating being Spanish for the past 10 years. And countless other lies told here. I feel so bad for you hosts, and for us listeners whose ears are bleeding.

pumped!!! ,

Everything I want to ask Dr.

It’s so fresh refreshing to hear a conversation between a mom and dr. I always feel so rushed and like I can only ask questions when things are wrong. I’ve learned so much from this podcast!
