Our current environment and lifestyle choices are influencing the health of our children. In this episode of the Soaring Child podcast, we are joined by guest Beth Lambert, the founder and executive director of Epidemic Answers, which is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to reestablishing vibrant health in our children and is at the forefront of understanding and tackling the modern health crisis affecting our children.
Beth is an author, mom, educator, and former healthcare consultant, and she has monitored and documented the escalating rates of children’s chronic conditions for over a decade. She is also the creator and executive producer of the Documenting Hope project, which is a multi-year perspective research study and media project that examines the cumulative impact of environmental stressors on health and their mitigation through personalized and system based treatment approaches.
In this episode, learn more about the modern health epidemic that is affecting our children and discover what you can do to combat it today.

[35:00] Final thoughts from Beth
”All of our kids with very few exceptions – it’s the vast majority of kids living in the modern industrial world – are exhibiting symptoms that didn’t used to be there.”
”We are looking at the sickest generation of children on record.”
“Once you understand why, you can unwind it.”
“We are really seeing this unprecedented change in children’s health because of the way we’re living.”
“There’s plenty of epidemiological data and research done to show that it’s not JUST about better diagnosing.”
”There’s all these different suspected villains as to who’s responsible for this epidemic of chronic illness, but the reality is, it’s never one thing. The total load concept is about the cumulative and synergetic effect of all of these stressors on our kids’ lives.”
“The more stressors the child has, the worse the health outcomes.”
“We can’t let this be our children’s future. Our children are not here to be sick and on medications their whole lives.”
“It’s all about the parent’s mindset. If the parent feels defeated…you will not see any progress.”
“The reason our kids are sick is because our culture is making them sick, so for you to thrive in today’s world, you actually have to do things that are the opposite of what everyone else is doing.”
