“The world is not the same place I grew up in the 80’s and 90’s”, says blogger & environmental health coach, PJ Harlow. “Sometimes I can’t believe what’s happened, & then I look at my own life, my health & my family’s, then it really resonates. I feel like a tourist now, awakening to a different planet, in more ways than I want to accept.” Is this real life, is your reality real? What once was taught & thought as truth, now needs to be unpacked & re-examined to innerstand our toxic environment, it’s role in the rise of chronic illness, & the future for our kids, our body, mind & spirit. PJ arrives educated, yet ready to expand. Her persona is approachable, sobering & often warmly sarcastic as she draws legitimacy from her personal stories, research & knowledge. Providing a compassionate & engaging space, her interviews are more like reunions with her relevant guests. Her conceptualizing charisma surfaces these often stigmatic, yet essential topics that more than anything, PJ wants advocacy, recognition & solutions for. Listen to connect, discover, and relate as we all seek our truths, in her empowering template of living healthy & well, The Tourist.
Why are our kids so Tox-sick? with guest Beth Lambert
Pj interviews her friend, author, & children’s health advocate, Beth Lambert.
Beth Lambert, MA is the Founder and Executive Director of Epidemic Answers, a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to reestablishing vibrant health in our children and ourselves through education, empowerment and prevention. Beth is also the author of A Compromised Generation: The Epidemic of Chronic Illness in America’s Children (Sentient, 2010) and co-author of Brain Under Attack (Answers Publications, 2018). Beth is currently also the Executive Director of Epidemic Answer's Documenting Hope Project, a collaborative science and media initiative poised to end the new childhood epidemics.
ON THIS EPISODE:
PJ & Beth discuss the silent epidemic of our children’s health, which statistically presents as the biggest crisis of our modern times. Listen as Beth reveals staggering numbers about our nations kids. She shares no matter what different diagnostic category you look at, whether it’s asthma, ADHD, Autism, eczema or allergies, they are all on the same trajectory, which is up!
This information should make you question: why?
Why isn’t this being shared more? Why is this so under-reported and un-recognized? Why is this happening? Why now? Why aren’t we doing something about it? We wondered the same thing and it was a huge reason Pj wanted Beth on the show!
Listen as both Pj & Beth share their viewpoints regarding our cultures habitual exercises to distrust our own maternal & healthy instincts, how we normalize symptoms & sickness, and how we need to be more open to understanding the impact of our environment and everyday convenient practices.
Beth goes into intricate detail and explains what is “the total load theory” and how this is relevant to your families health.
Both ladies go hard on issues we are facing, & neither hold back with their opinions of the current system, capitalism, our toxic culture and the one size fits all medicalized model that is in no way helping statistics change. With so much at stake, this episode is not only for all parents but for all who wish to do more for our children, the future and our world.
Beth’s describes her biggest work to date: the Documenting Hope Project, which we believe ranks up there with the most important scientific work that is being done to date. Check our site for more info.

PJ & Carla have an amazing connection & vibe; it's an episode that keeps you invested the entire time, especially if you find yourself, tired, sore, and struggling with unidentifiable or chronic health issues. With some sobering topics on the table, it’s a loose & sometimes humorous conversation packed with eloquent wisdom & realistic truths. As usual, PJ doesn’t hold back with her raw perception & relative boomeranging points, as her own personal experience tie into this podcast.
