In this episode, we’re talking to Dr. Stephani Liu, the creator of Life of Dr. Mom and By Dr. Mom, about how to deal with sickness and keep ourselves healthy this winter! Originally I had hoped we could go more in depth about the covid vaccine for kids, but do to an influx of negative backlash we decided not to cover that in this interview. However, I always strive to bring you fact based information to help empower you in your decisions and have included several links that can aid you in your research when making these decisions.
Give our episode a listen to learn about tips for dealing with colds, Covid, and boosting your immune system, and check out the Resource Link section for articles and studies related to the covid vaccine.
