Dr. Elana interviews Dr. Michelle Young - a fellow pediatric naturopathic doctor. Dr. Michelle and Dr. Elana go way back - when Michelle was a student she would shadow Dr. Elana  - watching how she treated her patients and how she conducted her vaccine consults. Now Dr. Michelle is a licensed doctor herself and Dr. Elana is SO proud to call her a colleague. Dr. Michelle does incredible work with her patients and also offers online programs to help support moms and kids around the world. You can learn more about her work by following her Instagram page @dr.michelle_young. 

Today’s episode is unique in that the interview Dr. Elana did with Dr. Michelle actually comes directly from her Doctor Mom Membership. She invited Dr. Michelle as an expert guest to talk about Kid’s Detox Protocols and we felt the interview was so valuable we wanted to also share it with our podcast listeners.  

 

So if you hear them chatting about different detox remedies and specific protocols, please note if you want a deeper dive into dosing or safety notes, feel free to log into the Doctor Mom Library where you can find all of your answers and more about Kid’s Detox practices. If you aren’t already a member, visit www.DoctorMomMembership.com and join. For less than $1/day you have access to all of Dr. Elana’s pediatric holistic protocols right at your fingertips! We’d love to have you join our community of Doctor Moms! 

Topics Discussed:

  • What does detoxing mean and why is this important specifically for kiddos?

  • Top toxic offenders we want all kids to avoid!

  • Top 3 lifestyle tips to start that can make a big difference to help lower toxic burden?

  • 2 Types of Kid’s Detox Protocols every Doctor Mom should know!

  • How to not let toxins cause too much anxiety or scare Doctor Moms!

Show Notes:

My story:

I was diagnosed with chronic constipation and leaky gut at the age of 21.

At the time, I knew nothing about food allergies or sensitivities. Though when I look back on my childhood now, I recognize that I suffered the symptoms of chronic inflammation and reactions to food from an early age.

When I learned why I was having severe stomach pains and fluctuations in stool for years, I was exhausted. I had been through the ringer of the conventional medical system, finding no true answers to my concerns. That’s when I found naturopathic medicine.

What I discovered was a complete paradigm shift around healing our bodies and what it meant to truly be healthy. I also realized just how important health in childhood really is. The naturopathic approach made sense, I felt better than I ever had before, and since then I have made it my mission to share this medicine with others. This led me to attending the top naturopathic medical school in the country, Bastyr University in San Diego, CA, where I earned my doctorate.

My goal is to help your child feel better and stay healthy for years to come. I am not just trying to make their symptoms go away, but to truly treat the underlying cause so that they can thrive and become healthy adults. I can’t promise healing for your child will be linear or not take any effort, but I can promise that I will support you and your family along the way.

In my free time, you can find me at the local farmer’s markets finding fresh ingredients to cook with, somewhere out in nature, or spending time with her husband and pup, Chief!

Michelle has helped over 1000 clients reverse their anxiety, heal their gut issues and approach their weight lovingly.
