On today’s episode, Dr. Elana interviews naturopathic doctor, Dr. Ari Calhoun on the topic of vaccines. You will learn what a Doctor Mom’s approach to vaccines means and how to ultimately feel empowered making these complex and difficult decisions for your children.  Dr. Ari Calhoun is on a mission to stop the exponential rise in chronic pediatric disease and is thus passionate about educating parents on the importance of preconception care, thoughtful vaccination, environmental toxins, and optimal nourishment from the very start.  

Topics Discussed:

Show Notes:

Dr. Calhoun is a Naturopathic Doctor and founder of Kith and Kin Wellness, a Naturopathic Medical practice in San Diego California dedicated to providing comprehensive holistic care to mothers and their children. Within the field of pediatrics, Dr. Calhoun has a clinical focus on neurodevelopment and immune system disorders, including Autism, ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder, autoimmunity, eczema, and food allergies and intolerances. She takes a comprehensive multi-system approach to every one of her patients, which includes exploration of environmental toxicity, gut health, nutrient balance and dietary factors, underlying infections, and prenatal/early life environment. She is on a mission to stop the exponential rise in chronic pediatric disease, and is thus passionate about educating parents on the importance of preconception care, thoughtful vaccination, environmental toxins, and optimal nourishment from the very start. Beyond her role as a Naturopathic Doctor, she is a mother- which she considers to be the biggest inspiration for her work.
