Episode 47: Pediatric Wellness & Tongue Ties with Dr. Pejman Katiraei

 

 

Families call him Dr. K., and on today's episode we have Dr. Pejman Katiraei to talk about a holistic approach to pediatrics with a focus on tongue ties. Specifically, we're discussing the domino effect they cause later in life--including failure to thrive, oral aversions/extreme picky eaters, sleep apnea, development of palate, and even what looks like ADHD and anxiety.

Dr. K graduated from his residency in 2006. From 2004-2005 he realized there has to be more to the story than what he was trained to do. He was fortunate to see a lot of complex cases, great training, but saw things that didn’t add up. One particular case was an 8-10 year old boy who had horrible colitis. Steroids didn’t work and doctors wanted to remove colon. Ultimately he knew there was more to the story than a major surgery.

Dr. K is an integrative pediatrician, with a focus on severe behavioral issues in children. He works with more than just diet, the gut, and...

Episode 39: What to Expect from Your Lactation Consultant

 

In today's episode, Jacqueline answers a listener question: "Hey Jacqueline, would you consider doing a podcast on what working with an IBCLC should look like? I hear from so many moms that have a breastfeeding issue like low supply or nursing strike. They have tried ‘everything’ under the sun and hired an IBCLC or LC too, but their issue just doesn’t improve. And now their back to hacking it alone or stopping all together. What is reasonable to expect from an IBCLC and what should they do if they can’t solve your issue? It would be really cool if a standard of care existed (even if it’s just one IBCLC’s opinion) so people could evaluate the care they have received."

In this episode you'll hear:

  • The standard of care Jacqueline uses and teaches
  • How to know whether or not you're getting great care from your IBCLC
  • Questions to ask when interviewing a lactation consultant
  • What to expect when working through breastfeeding challenges
