A Wholistic Approach to Pediatrics with Dr. Pejman Katiraei

A Wholistic Approach to Pediatrics with Dr. Pejman Katiraei



Dr. Pejman Katiraei has spent years using his curious mind and expertise across allopathic and holistic medicine to explore chronic conditions such as lupus, colitis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, memory problems, ADHD, anxiety, and IBS in profound depth. An initial consultation with him lasts 1.5 hours, and it doesn't take long to understand why! 

In this episode, he explains why diseases do not "just happen," and we need to get to the root of all anomalies to truly serve children and their families. We discuss the consequences of mold toxicity, Lyme, and ADHD, the limitations of testing, and the value of a parents' gut instinct that "something is not right" with their child. Plus: the exciting technological advancements that will bring his groundbreaking work to more people around the world.

Show Notes:

  • Dr. K takes a holistic view to pediatrics and uses varying modalities and research to address issues in his patients

  • Children who are impacted by mold often have poor detox pathways (liver, mitochondria) that make it difficult to naturally remove the mold

  • Mold triggers the immune system and can cause cognitive impairment like memory issues or emotional responses like anger

  • Most mold inspectors will look for obvious signs of water damage, but if they are not initially finding any and you suspect mold in your home, it make take a more in-dept inspection to find it

  • Fiber is essential for detox pathways, and some children may be consuming very limited fiber due to a "picky" diet, prioritize finding some kind of vegetable they will eat and then slowly increase variety

  • Supplements alone won't do the trick when it comes to healthy kids and adults, real food is essential

  • About 60% of children who have ADHD have trouble processing sensory inputs and can easily get anxiety as a result

  • Lyme disease and parasites can both be troublesome, masking behind symptoms that are difficult to figure out (eczema, Bell's Palsy, exhaustion, etc)

  • Dr. K is developing Wholistic Minds which will be a broad system for the public and for parents everywhere to find the root causes of health issues in children
