PTP299 - Dr. Pam Popper
In: Podcast0

In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Dr. Pam Popper, known for her no-nonsense videos and blogs that busts myths and tells the science-based truth. We get into the idea of ADHD, and how so many children are medicated but more importantly IF that medication is actually working and IF the RISK outweighs the BENEFITS. Do you know that your child can be more likely to abuse drugs if they are on behavior modification drugs? Do you know that there are other lifestyle skills you can apply to get better results without the scary side effects?

This episode is really important as we give you an understanding of what questions you need to ask your doctor before starting a medical protocol to protect yourself. We also cover if mammograms are important and if she supports illness fundraisers like “Run for The Cure”. You’ll also find out if Dr. Popper had bad habits and what they were. It will knock your socks off.

This is an episode you’d want to share with anyone with school-aged kids, kids with ADHD or someone about to go get their mammogram.
