The ChildLife Story

Having kids put the whole world into perspective.

You start to realize just how unhealthy the world has become.

40 years ago, 1 in 50 children had issues that lead to chronic illness.
Today, it’s 1 in 5.

As a pediatrician, I saw more and more kids with immune deficiencies, allergies, eczema, asthma, ADD, and autism. ‘Progress’ was removing the natural good in food and the environment.

I found that easily absorbed supplements could replace what was missing in kids’ bodies. This was over two decades ago. It made sense to me, but it was much harder trying to convince parents their children needed nutrients.

But over time, parents saw their kids getting better, other doctors started referring patients to me, and people began to understand the importance of supplementing throughout childhood. And now we’re making the world healthier, one child at a time.
