Saving Our Kids, Healing Our Planet was cofounded in 2008 by a pediatric, holistic RN and a determined mom of a child with autism. SOKHOP provides information on the underlying causes of the chronic health conditions affecting of our kids. More importantly, through well-researched articles, blog posts and video interviews it provides common-sense solutions for preventing and reversing conditions ranging from ADHD, Autism, Allergies, Asthma, Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes and childhood Cancer.
Environmental toxins (pesticides, GMO’s) sugar-laden, processed food, key nutrient deficiencies, stress, the overuse of antibiotics and vaccines etc. are all playing a role in why over half of our kids suffer from one or more of these chronic conditions.
SOKHOP is about taking smart action now to restore our kids right to a healthy and happy childhood!
