Love!!!

I love the wide range of topics covered and experts interviewed. I listened to the podacst regarding ear infections early last year and tried the suggestions after my son had 3 repeated ear infections and he hasn't had one since! Thank you Laura! I really enjoy listening :)

Laura is a God-send. Through her podcast, I have found lots of additional sources of great information on good nutrition for my children. Keep up the great work!
