Description

What are we really ingesting when we drink cows’ milk?

 

What are mothers passing through their bodies to their children? What in the world is a dairy allergy?

 

Dr. Vivian Chen dives into the dangers of dairy and her story of transitioning to a plant-based diet after a battle to diagnose the root of her infant’s feeding problem.

 

As a double-certified physician, Dr. Chen has seen a host of improvements in her patients when they cut dairy and address their lifestyle.

 

She’s going to tell you the sneaky ways dairy might be affecting you -- and your children.
