On this episode we focus on the importance of prenatal health and what parents should do to prepare themselves before they conceive their child.
This week our guest is Dr Ari Calhoun. She is a perinatal and pediatric Naturopathic Doctor and Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner who is passionate about helping her clients achieve an optimal state of health. With a background in clinical research, she blends the wisdom of ancient medicine with the cutting-edge knowledge gained from modern science.
Through her own battle with autoimmunity, infertility, and other chronic illness, she has come to understand the importance of solid health foundations from as early as the preconception time period. As a parent, Ari realized just how difficult it can be to raise a child in an environment filled with toxins, electronics, and commercialized junk food.
