Radio, Podcasts, and Online Publication
July 21st, 2019
Listen to the interview I gave for The Tourist Podcast where PJ Harlow and I break down the medicalization of health as we know it while illuminating the rise in chronic illness, childhood epidemics and the simple fact that many people aren’t finding answers and healing where they once did. As we talk about our own families’ experiences with chronic illnesses and how we both came into Functional Health, we discuss the common patterns of denial, low expectations and feeling abandoned by the system. We go deep into some of the barriers and obstacles families, parents, caregivers and individuals are currently facing.
An Oldie, But a Goodie!
Listen to the interview I gave for the Thriving Child Summit covering a wide range of topics including slowing down, a new model of healthcare, how to make health enriching and fun, when gluten-free is not always healthy, vitamin N, natural childbirth, healthy eating as a gift and not a deprivation, the catalysts for childhood chronic illness, and what is causing the general malaise our families are experiencing today.

The Centre for Epigenetic Expression Podcast Interview
Carla’s passion for health started with her daughter’s discouraging diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes, but learning about what true health really is spurred her on to not only help her daughter but to join a revolution in family health.
Center for Epigenetic Expression Podcast Interview #2
Do you have a child with a diagnosis? Do you have a diagnosis? Or do you simply want to feel better, have your children feel better, to move past ADHD, fatigue, obesity, autoimmunity, and other conditions that are affecting your life? Do you know there is more that you can do but are not sure where to start?
Then listen to this podcast!
Epidemic Answers Webinar
Supporting type 1 diabetes with a functional-medicine approach.
Carla’s daughter developed type 1 diabetes seven years ago. She discovered that mainstream medicine’s main way of dealing with type 1 diabetes is matching insulin to carbohydrates. Surely there must be more to it than that? And what causes or contributes to it?
Instead of thinking, “that’s all there is to it”, she dove into functional medicine, an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that looks to eliminate rather than suppress symptoms by looking at the root causes of a disease or condition.
Carla explained to us how, through functional medicine practices and testing, you can potentially:
- Find the root causes of your child’s diabetes
- Reduce or eliminate risk of further disease progression and complications
- Reduce or eliminate risk of developing co-morbidities
- Have a better relationship with your healthcare practitioners and chose the ones that will work with you in a manner that works for you
- Optimize your child’s health through your own efforts
- Explore the possibility of complete disease reversal or elimination of symptoms
