That's over 27 million children. Parents are often stuck trying to figure out what went wrong. Some doctors say chronic diseases are too hard to treat, while others are happy to give medication to mask the symptoms. And then there are doctors who completely embrace the challenge and somehow turn the patient’s health around. More and more, we’re finding that this third group of doctors are not limiting themselves to system medicine. Instead, they are reaching for wisdom from other medical modalities that have been used successfully for thousands of years. In this episode, integrative pediatrician Dr. Joel "Gator" Warsh shares his insights on chronic disease and what parents can do to help their children. Follow Dr. Joel Gator on instagram.

That’s 27,515,344 kids. These children are suffering from asthma, food allergies, diabetes, seizures. They could be on the spectrum, have ADHD or depression. There’s about 27 chronic health conditions that this survey has tracked nationwide. And I mean it’s mind blowing that nearly half of American school children have at least one of them. The costs of this are significant. Parents with a chronically ill child on average have to pay an extra of $3,361 per year in health care bills. And here you have to wonder, are we as parents paying for health care that is just putting a bandaid on the problem, or are we actually addressing the root cause of the chronic disease?
