The Story Behind Wholistic Kids and Families
"These “normal” problems could have been the early signs of imbalances leading to the future disease."
Dr. Katiraei has spent the last several years working with hundreds of adults with serious chronic diseases such as lupus, colitis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, memory problems, ADHD, depression, anxiety, IBS, chronic migraines, rheumatoid arthritis, hypothyroidism, etc. The pediatrician within him always wanted to know how these sick adults were as children. Dr. K learned that many of his adult patients had “normal” problems leading back to childhood. These “normal” problems could have been the early signs of imbalances leading to the future disease. In some patients, Dr.Katiraei was even able to find genetic and epigenetic weaknesses that led to excessive inflammation, inability to handle toxins, and hormonal and other imbalances.
Over and over again, Dr. Katiraei wondered if the serious adult diseases he was treating could have been prevented if the pediatrician of these sick adults had the right training and tools. Unfortunately, most medical doctors are not taught how to look for subtle problems or imbalances that could have occurred 20 or even 40 years in the past. Most pediatricians are never taught to connect subtle problems children may be showing with serious conditions and diseases in adulthood. Most physicians are not trained to look for the tiny piece of ice floating in the ocean which can be an indicator of the huge iceberg of disease beneath the surface.
Dr. K’s unique education, training and experience have allowed him to start connecting the dots and ultimately convinced him that the children of today do not have to become the sick adults of tomorrow. Dr. Katiraei created Wholistic Kids and Families to share this knowledge with all families who are interested in learning how to raise a healthy child (and future adult) in a world that is becoming increasingly polluted with toxins (chemical and emotional)
