A podcast for conscious parents who drop the f-bomb. A lot.

We are the overthinkers, the dreamers, and the doers. We are parenting in a radically different way than those before us. But our divine vision gets blurry cause...OMG...kids can be such a pain in the ass. Let's work from the inside out, in a whole brain, whole body way to mitigate the crappy behavior. Not just with our kids but with ourselves. So you can be the parent you envision.

Hosted by Jamie Glowacki, Author of "Oh Crap! Potty Training" and the soon to be released title, "Oh Crap! I Have a Toddler: Tackling These Crazy Awesome Years―No Time-outs Needed"

Aug 30, 2019

This episode marks two very special occasions for Oh, Crap! One is that Jamie is happy to bring you all her first interview conducted over Instagram livestream! The second is that her guest of honor is Dr. Kendra Becker. Kendra is an “integrated physician” operating out of Jamie’s own home state of Connecticut and specializes in holistic treatment of young patients and their parents. One of Jamie’s friends had recommended Kendra to her to help with perimenopause and the two quickly realized how well they gelled over how they choose to treat their patients and clients.

 

In this episode, Kendra explains how her style of treatment differs from—and has an edge over—mainstream Western medicine, breaks down how important biodiversity in our digestive tract is, and reveals what our poop can say about our health.



The Finer Details of This Episode:

 

  • The genetic reason each and every one of us has a medical history even at the moment we’re born.
  • The divisions in the medical community that led to naturopathy being shunted to the side.
  • Why Kendra thinks naturopathy and holistic medicine have an edge over western and pharmaceutical techniques.
  • Discussing the human microbiome and the important equilibrium that allows it to thrive.
  • The first myth Karen wants to dispel for all of her patients.
  • Kendra’s reason for why probiotics are so important, even with their potential risks, and how she prefers to store and administer them.
  • Getting down to the big topic: what does your poop say about you?
  • Kendra gives us a preview of one of her upcoming “Keeping Healing in the Home” e-course.
