Episode Info:

The health of today's teenagers is being eroded by a multitude of factors. Once upon a time adolescence was a passing phase of growth and development necessary to cross the threshold into adulthood. However, modern teenagers are dealing with much more than a change in body shape, hair and voice. Today's teens are navigating an unprecedented invasion of their psychosocial sphere with gaming and social media bringing forth a new dimension of bullying, harassment and body shaming. Furthermore dietary choices, recreational and pharmaceutical drugs, environmental pollutants and a lack of exercise, sunshine and fresh air are all playing a part in the assault to their microbiome, immunity and neurological systems. Ahead of her visit to Australia in August 2019 to present her seminar series 'Holistic Children's Health' we are joined today by Dr Elisa Song to share her expertise on the subtle nuances we need to be across when taking a functional medicine approach to working with adolescents.
