Teresa Fuller M.D., Ph.D, a Washington D.C. holistic pediatrician at National Integrated Health Associates, was recently interviewed by Robin Shirley CHHC, founder of the Take Back Your Health conference and Take Back Your Health blogtalkradio program. The subject was, "These Unhealthy Habits are Hurting Your Family's Health".
In her pediatric practice, Dr. Fuller sees the same 4-5 bad habits over and over again. Parents may mean well, but often are not informed as to the negative health consequences of daily habits. And these habits can add up over time to create health issues. It is not uncommon now to see children with obesity, attention issues, sleep problems, stress-related issues or chronic illnesses like diabetes.
Small Changes Can Make a Big Difference in Health
In this interview Dr. Teresa Fuller talks about small but meaningful changes that can make a real difference in the health of children and adults. As an example, one of the problems she sees is "Skimping on Sleep" and a lack of sleep can affect learning and the immune system. Are you or your kids texting at night? A simple change is to remove all technology from the bedroom as it can be a serious "sleep stealer".
