Holistic Paediatrician, Dr Elisa Song joins us to talk about maximising teenage physical and emotional wellbeing.
Anxiety, hyperactivity, sleep problems – these are very common concerns parents have about their children and that affect the entire family’s wellbeing. A parent can only be as relaxed as the least unruffled child in the family.
Determining the correct dose of nutrients and supplements for children can be overwhelming. To add to the confusion, many supplements will only show an adult dose on the label. So how can we convert that to a dose suitable for children?

Childhood obesity is a serious health issue and an early risk factor for obesity in adulthood, leading to morbidity and mortality. The odds ratio of obese toddlers is 1.3 for becoming obese adults, but increases to 17.5 in adolescents. Those who remain obese in adulthood are prone to a cluster of diseases and disorders called metabolic syndrome (MetSy). Worldwide, this syndrome is present in 20-25% of the population, while in Australia it is estimated to affect 1 in 3 adults.
