Wondering which camp you belong in? The alternative hippies with their natural remedies or the science-based experts in their white coats? Let’s blaze our own trail, one that meets the needs of thoughtful parents who want to cut through propaganda and understand what there really is to be afraid of, and how to handle it. Proactive parents are the hope for our children’s future – arm yourself with research, expert opinions, and ancient wisdom so that you can take control of your family’s wellness.
If you’re rethinking paradigms on science and medicine, this show is for you. Education equals empowerment and delivers the antidote to overmedicalization. Through the internet, the layperson now has convenient, open access to stunning amounts of biomedical research on the therapeutic value of natural substances in disease prevention and treatment. Enter a world in which old medicine meets the new science; and the “prescriptions” are vitamins, minerals, herbs, and foods. By working with the body’s intelligence, these natural substances have minimal to no side effects, produce astonishingly positive results, are cost-effective, and put conventional drugs and allopathic treatments to shame.

Toni Bark, MD
At our core, we are energy. The essence of life and living matter lies not in chemistry but in the presence of vibrational or electrical energy. Plant life, minerals, and the earth’s electromagnetic field affect us in profound ways: how we think, eat, live, and interact with others. Where does that energy come from, where does it go, and how are we affected by the energy around us?
The world of genetics is shifting to epigenetics and a more nuanced grasp of the varied ways that science, belief, attitudes, and environment shape who we are. We’re seeking a deeper understanding of our bodies, our psyches, our health, our behaviors, and our relationship with the world around us..

Parenting children and teens is no easy feat. But it is gooood! We grow as our children grow. We change as they change. We advocate, constantly make decisions, concessions, negotiations, and limitations and try to stay sane and intact and healthy, ourselves, along the way. We parents strive to be stress-free, present, informed, and empowered by researching and critically thinking, while doing the most challenging, important, exhausting, amazing job in existence. And for that, we need to stay inspired, ourselves; we need support and conversation and some juicy tips and direction. It is not only our jobs to keep our children alive, but to help them to thrive, heal from injury and illness, navigate emotions and social situations, nourish their spirits, and grow as functional, whole, inspired human beings. Yep. That’s big. And it takes a vibrant, engaged village!

Her journey, as well as advocacy work and research, are chronicled on www.floxiehope.com. She is honored to further learn and connect through Fearless Parent Radio.

Judy Converse, MPH RD
Your kids were built to learn, grow, and thrive, but over half of US children have a chronic health condition or disability. We live in a new normal where kids routinely take multiple meds for everything from asthma and allergies to behavior, learning, and mood problems, and where pediatric specialist visits for neuropsych evals and GI work ups are routine. Want to get off that merry go round, or avoid it in the first place? Judy will help move your family toward robust health and away from the pharma-dependent kid routine. She talks up integrative medicine and nutrition tools to energize the innate capacity kids have to be healthy, enjoy school, fight infections, and go out and play.
