You may be wondering a little about how I came to be here with you today.
Let me tell you a quick story about my struggles with my own children's eczema.
At the time I was trying to build a busy pediatric practice in a traditional medicine model, maintain a household, be a good wife, and most importantly raise healthy children.
I was giving 2 of my kids more and more medication to treat their red and itchy skin but it seemed to be getting worse. They would sit outside crying and scratching their arms from the eczema.
And I was getting more and more frustrated and feeling helpless as a mother; I was a doctor and I couldn't keep my own children healthy.
Then the bottom fell out from under me when I finally took my daughter to my pediatric colleague who told me "the only thing left is to start injections". I was horrified at the thought. Something needed to change.
Which meant I couldn't give my children and family the health they needed to thrive in school and socially.
As you can imagine, I was in bad shape and desperate, but I wasn't ready to give up on my dream of healing my children without harmful medications.
Then I attended a presentation at my daughter's preschool that only discussed one key topic - sugar.
At that point, everything changed!
