Optimizing the Health of Children with Type 1 Diabetes Online Weekend Workshop

The Optimizing the Health of Children (and Teens) with Type 1 Diabetes


Are you ready to move beyond the medical paradigm and explore a more holistic approach to your child’s health?

Have you been told that matching insulin to carbs is all that matters in diabetes care?

Have you been told that higher sugars are fine for children, when you know that they’re not?

Are you ready to get off of the emotional and physical roller coaster of chronic illness and help your child take charge of his or her health?

Could life be a little easier and the focus on other things such as living and having fun with your children?

Do you know that there is a LOT more you can do for your child with diabetes but need to know exactly what?

In one weekend spent together online, we will try to cram in as much as I can teach you not about managing Type 1 Diabetes but transcending the diagnosis.

Workshop Goals


Better bloodsugars, better moods, less sick days, and a long and healthy life come with a healthy body and mind, despite a diagnosis. By teaching you a holistic approach based on the principles of functional medicine and lifestyle interventions, my goal is to have you come out of the workshop empowered with new skills, tools, support, and information that will enable you to exponentially elevate your child’s health.
