Saving Our Kids, Healing Our Planet (SOKHOP) is at the forefront of a new movement focused on sustainable living practices and safe and effective methods for preventing and recovering our children from ADHD, Autism, Allergies, Asthma, Obesity, Diabetes etc. It is a forum where parents, teachers, therapists and physicians gather and learn from leading experts about safe and effective methods for preventing and treating many of the chronic conditions affecting our children today. Why in the midst of an abundance of research substantiating the use of nutrients, the role toxins play in these conditions and the importance of dietary changes to prevent and treat various conditions , does the pharmaceutical approach remain the most common (and sometimes the only) treatment option parents are given?

SOKHOP offers a chance to hear leaders in the fields of pediatrics, nutrition and the environment discuss real solutions for these growing problems.

- Cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease in children
- Asthma has more than doubled since 1980 and is the leading chronic disease among American children
- 1 in 6 children are considered overweight
- 1 in 400-500 children have diabetes
Although startling, these numbers are real. What is the solution? As Albert Einstein said “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” As concerned parents, teachers and health care professionals it is time to listen and learn from some of the brightest thinkers of our time as they discuss new safer and more effective options for our kids.
Saving Our Kids, Healing Our Planet is the brainchild of a pediatric nurse (Maureen McDonnell, RN) who has been coordinating children’s health oriented conferences with some of the country’s leading physicians and researchers and treating children’s health and behavioral problems using nutritional methods for 30 years. Jill Urwick is a mom who has recovered two of her children, one from ADHD and one from autism using natural interventions. Given their knowledge, passion and experience, these two women are joining a growing number of parents and health care professionals to forge a new approach to prevent and reverse many childhood illnesses and disorders. Instead of just treating the symptoms, the experts at SOKHOP address and teach how to treat the underlying
