by Dr Ruth Allan | LIVE Thu 13 Apr 23, released Mon 17 Apr 23
Dr Ruth Allan goes LIVE as a new 'Brain Bites' segment to her podcast 'Brain Health: Unchaining Your Pain'. In this LIVE episode Dr Ruth draws on several guest episodes of her show 'Brain Health: Unchaining Your Pain' and her own personal experience to provide parents and carers with 10 simple steps you can take to empower your children to become warriors for their own health - starting with creating food warriors
Because at present in the USA our children are predicted to die earlier than us as a result of the state of our food system - in essence we are killing our children early
And being a parent, Dr Ruth is NOT ok with that
In this episode Dr Ruth talks about what you can do to nurture healthier, happier, calmer kids who, rather than being victims to the toxins in the food system that is poisoning their minds and bodies, are more EMPOWERED to take back control and change the food system to one that benefits their health, rather than just the food industry
She shares the shocking statistics that are influencing what we eat and the impact it is having on us. She discusses why it's so important to start talking about the brain and falling in love with it, what you can do as a parent or carer personally to become ambassadors for a better brain and longer health span and life span, and how you can support your children in becoming food warriors
