@leanonme68 in my daughters account since mine is messed up. Wanted to share my #wcw It’s always my daughter. She has been such a blessing in my life. She had to grow up really early in life when Lupus started attacking my organs. She gave up a normal life to be my caregiver for many years. She fights her own health battles. She holds our family together as my moms #alzheimers slowly progresses. She keeps me positive when all my diseases seem too much to handle. She has the biggest and most beautiful heart of anyone I know. I’m so thankful to be her mommy. #beautiful #model #patient #caregiver #autoimmunedisease #invisibleillness #photography #blonde #laughter #positivevibes #lupus #eds #alzheimers #family #star #thoseeyes #ourstory #makeup #photooftheday #Local #countrygirl #eyesarethewindowtothesoul #pain #beautymark #kc

Hi, I’m Melissa. My Sjogren’s journey began in October of 2015. Next week, I’ll be posting a video of what the two year journey to a diagnosis was like for me. Can’t wait to share my story with you and hear some of yours. Sending love ❤️

💪🏽”The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us but those who win battles we know nothing about” 💪🏽 After a rough & slow morning, I made it through a very long day. I fought and made it to my meeting and then another meeting. It wasn’t easy or without pain, but I survived and no one even knew how much it took to just get out of bed. I smile because, today, I won the battle. Not only did I get out of bed, but I rocked it today in spite of everything. Thankful...it’s time to rest the body now. Let’s see how tomorrow goes. #madeitthrough #fighter #smilethroughitall😀 #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunewarrior 💪🏽 #endowarrior🎗 #chronicpain #invisibleillness #spoonielife 🥄 #spooniesunite

#nonperks of having an #autoimmunedisease is when a simple scratch quickly escalated into a nasty infection 😷😂😷 ah well who needs a symmetrical face anyway? Lopsided lips and puffy jawline is the new look, right?

Check out the first in a series of videos about sticking to an autoimmune #Paleo diet at #Disneyworld. This is my daughter, Madi, and she has a blog and YouTube channel about how she works to control her #Crohn’sDisease with diet (in addition to her medication) Last month when we went to #Orlando, she documented just how she was able to stick with it on vacation. To visit her YouTube or website, #Freelymadi, just click on the link in her bio @freelymadi She’s just getting started on both of them, and would mean so much to her. #foodallergies #foodallergiesatdisney #paleodiet #paleodietatdisney #glutenfree #glutenfreeatdisneyworld #epcot #hollywoodstudios #disneyshollywoodstudios #autoimmunedisease #crohnsdisease #aipdiet

I've been working 13-hour days this week and am uber stressed... But @beylstyle has been doing everything he can to help me keep my cool, including grocery shopping, making dinner and even waking up with me to get breakfast ready. Tonight's meal was truly spectacular... Matt even de-spined a whole chicken! These last few days following the #autoimmuneprotocol have been the tastiest days I've had in awhile.

These pictures of me represent all the changes of hair dye I try!! Hahaha Rose, blonde, Lavender, Pink, Rainbow, natural, fuchsia, baby light pink and short or long then short and then hopefully long. lol I change my hair color allot. And not too drastically but enough to be like... I like color. And right now it's green! As I see the changes in my hair Transformtioion, I look back to when I was in that Yellow. dress. It brings tears to my eyes right away, I hope and pray for those sunny days, as I feel them slipping away everyday. Everyday has been hard, I've been battling chronic illness with my Mind, Spirit and Body unendingly it seems. But I know I will get back to those sunny days when life radiates from my cheeks and I glow with radiance! My bones will radiate with Life!! I have found a New Hope. A Beacon in the Dark! And yes it is helping me and I can only pray and hope it will help heal me and with spreading awareness it will help heal others too.

I think one of the hardest things about fitness for beginners is setting realistic goals. I hear so many people new to fitness have really vague goals like "I want to be stronger" or even what I call disappointment goals where they want to look like so and so which almost always leads to frustration and heart ache. Now the first is a hard goal to meet because how do you define when you've hit it? Do you just decide you're good one day? I find that I need more specific goals so I can feel like I'm progressing. For example my goal for 2018 is to be stronger but more specifically to be able to do 10 pull ups. With a more specific goal I can break it down further and define steps to reach this goal. I'm starting with doing assisted pulls up in 2 of my workouts per week. Right now its maybe once a week and I know I can be doing more! Anyone set any good goals this year they want to share? . . . . #fitnessaddict #fitness #getstrong #fitgirl #health #fitlife #gethealthy #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunewarrior #chronicillness

You know what? I’m not that keen on offal - chicken or duck livers, in this instance. But, I realise and know that they’re an absolute nutritional powerhouse. The B complex vitamin profile is outstanding and it’s the only food I eat where I feel noticeably energised and positive an hour after eating them. So, to make them more palatable I’ll add them to casseroles and the like. In this instance i finely chopped up chicken livers, pan fried them in ghee, then added left over chilli con carne. I also added cold soaked cooked legumes. A great fibre and when cooked and cooled changes the bio-availability from high carb to resistant starch - butyrate. A wonderful pre-biotic to feed my probiotics - the microbiome. I’ve measured my blood sugar levels after eating legumes prepared this way and they’re always in the normal range. I highly recommend adding offal into your diet. #vitaminbcomplex #nutrientdensefoods #functionalnutritionist #mthfr #mthfrawareness #insulinresistance #prediabetes #prediabetesawareness #diabetes #autoimmunedisease #cfsrecovery #hypothyroidism #hypoglycemia #canberra #canberrafood #pastureraised #chickenlivers #rawfermentedsauerkraut

I’ve spent the last few days participating in an autoimmune empowerment group listening to amazing research from various specialist and reading the stories of other autoimmune warriors. There has been one overwhelming similarity our stories continue to exemplify which is the power of food! Countless women and men have reversed diseases and reawakened true health by being intentional in what they nourish their bodies with It could not be more true that what we put in our bodies is either fighting or feeding disease. I am amazed at the work of the Lord to have given us bodies that are powerful enough to heal themselves, and the very food that is intrinsically designed to do so. ❤️ #grateful #foodismedicine #hashimotos #takecareofyourself #selflove #autoimmunedisease

Living with Auto Immune Diseases isn’t easy, I’ve been going through a flare up that doesn’t want to leave. Theres so much uncertainty, that I embrace my Life as my creative adventure. I try not to resist change& to see my setbacks as growth and expansive opportunity. Self development is constant & ive learned: 1. Self- acceptance. To forgive myself, allow myself to be a constant beginner & put the past behind me. . 2. Self - love. To love my body through weight fluctuations, flare ups, pain, & injury. No matter what, I am a Beautiful person & respect my body. . 3. A realization that helping others isn’t about me. I don’t need to be anyone else besides myself to inspire others. . 4. I’ve been guided to passions and created a purpose to help others in their health journey & to never give up on my vision, despite my health conditions. . 5. To Stop chasing what doesn’t work, to not fight against myself, because I always have a choice of change. . 6. To realease expectations and enjoy the journey. Life doesn’t always go as planned, life is not always certain, & that’s the beauty. Trust myself to trust the path. . 7. To stop comparing myself to others. It hurts my health and steals my joy. . 8. I am not un- reliable, my health is. Because of so, to not judge myself or others as we all fight battles. . 9. To Support myself with people who see my greatness, believe in me and want to see me grow. . 10. To allow myself to have sad and sick days, I’m human. . 11. I’m a fighter & a survivor in a body that tries to destroy me. I refuse to be a victim of my circumstances. . 12. To let go of control. Although I may not always be in control of my day to day symptoms, am in control of how I fuel my body and mind by the nutrients I fill it with. . 13. To be thankful for the power and knowledge of whole food nutrition and fitness and reinforcement of lifestyle changes. . 14. I was given the Strength to use my Diseases as a tool and a gift that will help myself and others. . 15. Vulnerability is scary,courageous & Beautiful! Vulnerability- subjecting myself to the risk of judgement, sharing my journey, openness to creating connection with others, and asking for what I need.

So, I’m just sitting here, practicing and practicing and practicing. I realize that my voice has changed since surgery and it’s insane how different it is. There are negatives and positives but in the end, I have to keep pushing. Regardless of how far this takes me, or how terrible I’ve gotten, I just want all of you to know that I sing for relief. Relief from stress caused by my medical board, stress caused from not being here mentally for my family, stress caused by my disease and how it’s going to make changes to my life. After the #military , I hope to be doing something that makes me a better person. I hope I can bring relief to those who need to have someone there. Love all of you! I’ll be posting a lot during the next couple of weeks.

What. A. Day. Bad things happen in threes, right?... 1. Left my cell phone in the cold last night so it wouldn’t charge... 2. My car wouldn’t start this morning 3. My throat is scratchy and I’m stuffy, and can tell my body is trying to fight off something. I am exhausted. But on a positive note, my husband can’t work too late at work this week because he’s going to have to pick me up!! 😝 . . . . . . . #ibd #chronicillnesswarrior #chronicillness #crohnsdisease #crohnswarrior #crohns #crohnie #crohnslife #spoonie #invisibleillness #autoimmunedisease #autoimmune #autoimmunewarrior #positivity

So, this new program that I'm doing has an eating plan that goes along with it that utilizes time-based nutrition, which essential means that you're eating around your workout to ensure that your body is functioning at its best as well as optimizing recovery.  Honestly, I wasn't even planning on following it.  I've had such struggles with appetite, nausea, and stomach issues (likely all anxiety related) that eating has been a real struggle.  Not too mention that I'm often awake until after 4 or 5 in the morning, which means I get up super late.  But, since starting the program, I've found myself starving and dealing with a lot of things that I think are from less than optimal nutrition like lightheadness and headaches, plus the past couple of nights I've felt what I think is hunger!  So, I'm trying this plan out.  This is my post-workout meal, which is a carb, protein, and vegetable.  Funnily enough, the day that I start this plan is the day that I feel the most nauseous and full.  AND, according to the plan, I've supposed to eat three more times today.  It might take me awhile to fit in all I'm supposed to eat (you're supposed to have a pre-workout meal, post-workout supplement, post-workout meal, and then 3 more meals!), but I'm gonna give this thing a shot.  Despite feeling really off today, I've actually gotten a TON done work wise.  Maybe there's something to this plan after all!

When the stars align & your electrolytes & sunglasses match ✨👓 I’ve definitely been feeling more “off” than usual today - extremely dizzy, lightheaded & nauseous. Seems like each & every time I move my head the room tilts (hence the nausea). My blood pressure has been even lower than usual for me so hopefully the extra salt & liquid helps and it’s not the beginning of getting sick... I’ve noticed that before I come down with a cold or virus my numbers seem to be off kilter (especially my BP). -kate

Rope curls for bigger arms. . . I’ve noticed some size increase in my bicep, by adding this at the end of my 💪🏼workouts. . . “Your biceps, which runs across the front of your upper arm, is the biggest muscle trained when performing dumbbell hammer curls; however, your brachioradialis performs a lot of work. The brachioradialis runs from your wrist, across the inside portion of your elbow and into your upper arm bone. The rotation of your hands allows the brachioradialis to contribute more to the upward motion of the curl than traditional curl exercises even though it is smaller than your biceps. Your brachialis is also worked during these curls and provides important stabilization for your arm as it moves. It also runs across the elbow joint, but is much smaller than the brachioradialis.”(Livestrong.com)

Here’s a little throwback photo from dance when I was little... those were the simple days. 🦋 Let this post serve as a reminder to NEVER take your mobility for granted. Right now, my body is craving movement. All I want to do is dance (even though I’m not the best dancer in the world😂 #mover 💃🏻). I am so blessed to be able to walk unassisted and without any aids, which is something I have needed to do in the past, but I still can’t help but think of feeling free again. When you loose your mobility, your body craves the release of energy and endorphins through movement and exercise ten-fold. I can’t wait till that sweet sweet day when I am in remission and we have tackled my other recent diagnoses which have been so limiting on my body and I’m able to do just that again! Even walking through the grocery store right now without agonizing pain or passing out is a victory! Next time you’re feeling tired and sore from working out or taking that really intense dance class, remember that someone somewhere wishes that they are able to have that same feeling. Keep pushing. Keep going. Remain grateful. 🌈🌟💘🙌🏻💪🏻🎗🧡☘️🌻⚡️ OH, and you better believe that I am starting @tracyandersonmethod Metamorphasis as soon as I am well enough to because 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻‼️thank you SO MUCH for tweeting me the other day! You inspire me SO much and your videos empower me to keep fighting! 😍💜💗 #SophiesArmy #SophieStrong

Last year I ran a LEAP food sensitivity test on myself. Food sensitivities are much more common than food allergies. They can contribute to inflammation and even trigger autoimmune symptoms when "leaky gut" is an issue. Since inflammation is at the root of many diseases I of course wanted to test myself. .. I found that I reacted to just about every grain (even quinoa which is technically a seed). I don't like to deprive myself so instead I found a solution. This is Pumpernickel Nut and Seed Bread! Completely gluten and grain free. It has so much flavor and makes amazing avocado toast with eggs for breakfast. .. Grab the recipe and let me know what you think👉👉http://www.theorganicdietitian.com/pumpernickel-nut-and-seed-bread-vegan-paleo-gluten-free/ .. Now this doesn't mean I will have to avoid these foods forever. Oftentimes you can heal your gut and then reintroduce foods slowly to assess tolerance. #foodsensitivities

Picture of a cool rock lamp I got for Christmas. I probably wont be very active on here for a bit. Once again I need to ask you to please send me all the good vibes, healing thoughts, prayers(whatever ya got! lol) you can. I have been on Benlysta infusions for 2 years and was unable to get it the past 2 times I needed to because I was "normal people sick" (cant get Benlysta when sick because it can cause you to become sicker) When i went to scedual it again, it had to go through my insuance again to get re-approved so I had to wait 14 days. Well, today was supposed to be the day where I get it again, I was beyond excited because Benlysta has been keeping my SCLE(also discoid and bullous) Lupus from flaring up and I have been expiriencing symptoms of my skin getting bad againg. Ive had sores in my mouth, throat, and nose. My skin has been itchy and alot more sensative to light again, both natural and artificial. Along with that I have been getting a Malar rash... well, for some reason my insurance company thinks that I dont need to be on it anymore and I was unable to get it today because of that. Im hoping we can get this mess figured out soon because this medication has been a life saver, Id hate for my health to get alot worse because the insurance people have their heads up their butts 🙃 I am over 40 days late on my infusion and really not doing good #lupus #sle #scle #benlysta #chronicillness #chronicallyill #autoimmune #autoimmunedisease

Generally your immune system is working at all times to protect you but, unfortunately, it can at times work against you. This is my patient who suffers from pemphigus foliaceous (PF): a rare, autoimmune blistering disorder that affects the skin. In PF, antibodies attack the “cement” that holds your skin cells together leading to the formation of blisters on otherwise healthy skin. The blisters rupture easily leaving erosions and crust as pictured. Patients often complain of a burning or painful sensation. Treatment may include topical steroids for mild cases, oral prednisone and other medications aimed at reducing the formation of the antibodies responsible for the disease. #barattaderm #barattadermatology #hainesportdermatologist #pemphigus #superficialpemphigus #pemphigusfoliaceus #autoimmunedisease #rareautoimmunedisease #skindisease #rareskindisease #blisters #skinblister #antibodies #immunesystem #painfulskin #painfulskincondition #blisteringskindisease #burningskin

I was/am beyond tired this evening. But I’m even more determined to get my health back. So despite feeling like ass and just wanting to go to bed at 6pm, I made this delish dinner in less than 30 min. @practicalpaleo_official salmon cakes that were pretty damn good, #thehealingkitchen cookbook’s sautéed spinach with alliums (shout out to the awesomeness of @grazedandenthused and @thepaleomom for the best cookbook evah), and some roasted asparagus. All tasty, all nutritious. Btw, I’m totally in bed before 8pm 🙌🏻 😴 #paleo #eatyourveggies #cleaneating #autoimmunedisease #autoimmuneprotocol #aip #hashimotos #wellness

I am so excited to share another new product and clean makeup company with you that I recently discovered. This is a long post but when a company is doing so many amazing things I just have to share! @afterglowcosmetics is an awesome company about much more than just creating quality makeup. They are committed to using non-toxic, organic ingredients and even have a No-Go List of all the ingredients they are committed to never use. If you are just starting to learn about natural makeup and want to get educated check out their website. It has so much great information. I’m not sure I have ever seen a natural makeup company share so much great information in such an approachable manner. Besides making amazing products and educating the consumer Afterglow Cosmetics is a proud partner of The Conservation Fund’s Business Partnerships Program. Together, they are helping to offset the CO2 emissions associated with shipping each order. You can donate on their website and they will match it 100%. I don't know about you but I ❤️ supporting companies that are not only creating amazing products but are also doing their part to support the environment. Now onto the review! The product I have been using is the Perfecting Under Eye Concealer in Shortcake. They have three colors and I selected the middle tone. I probably should have gone with the lighter shade but wanted to be able to use it on other areas of my face and once blended it's a decent match. These concealers are formulated with certified organic coconut oil, organic cocoa butter, organic white tea extract, organic marshmallow extract and natural minerals. I was not sure if I would love this product because other oil based concelears I have tried I felt settled into my fine lines or wore off easily. I have found this product soaks right into the skin and leaves the under eye area even and bright. I do use a small amount of translucent setting powder which I have found keeps everything in perfect place all day long. Oh, and it comes with a brush! I received this product complimentary from #afterglowcosmetics . All opinions are 100% my own #gifted #honestreview #octolyfamily

I went to The Paisley Pig in Grand Haven, Mi tonight, and had a great celiac safe dinner. Our waitress was great and answered my questions as well as alerted me to all that I could eat or definitely could’t eat on the menu. The man who came around at the end of the night was very nice to talk to too. He said that they have plans to expand the restaurant which will make it even better for patrons with food allergies and Celiacs Disease. I order the local mandarin orange Kombucha tea to drink. I ended up ordering the Kurobuta Pork Short Rib. It was brought out on a bed of roasted butternut squash, mashed potatoes in the harissa bbq pan juices from the ribs. The Rib meat fell right off the bones and left them very clean. The meat was very delicate and moist and the vegetables were cooked to perfection. I was a very happy gluten free foodie this evening. . . . . . . #celiac #celiacfood #celiacdisease #coeliac #coeliacdisease #glutenfreemichigan #grandhavenmi #glutenfree #glutenfreefoodie #glutenfreefollowme #feedfeedglutenfree #celiacsafe #coeliacsafe #coeliacfriendly #celiacfriendly #glutenfreegirl #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunewarrior #foodallergies #shortribs #glutenfreefoodporn #sansgluten #glutenfreedinner #restaurant #grandhavenmichigan #kombucha #culturedkombucha #glutenfreelife #celiaclife #coeliaclife

Well I have now been diagnosed with a second autoimmune disease, my brain is attacking itself and causing inflammation in my spinal cord and medical conditions are also causing the body to attack itself and destroy its own tissues. While your body is designed to defend against a host of environmental invaders, some times it does not. In general terms, AI diseases are described as communication breakdowns between our body’s cells, where immune cells can no longer distinguish between our own healthy tissue and a harmful cells. There are no known cures, therapies focus on controlling flare-ups with anti-inflammatory drugs, immune suppressors, antiviral drugs and other medications. This is a symptomatic approach that does not address the root cause of the AI disease and can also lead to severe and debilitating side effects. Few things in life can rattle us like illness. It causes us to come face to face with our mortality. Battling Autoimmune Disease Naturally will encourage and equip you for the fight. I have battled Autoimmune Disease for about 2 years now. Our immune system’s primary responsibility is to protect our body from infection and other forms of illness, sometimes this system turns on itself. When this occurs, those of us with autoimmune diseases, the immune system begins attacking our healthy cells because it identifies them as foreign materials. Exactly a year ago, I went through the worst flare up I have ever had. It basically, sent me to bed for months. Which I must add was most inconvenient! So the journey began, doctor visits every two weeks and still, they could only treat the symptoms with medications and not the root cause. To hear that there is nothing to be done and that I have to live this way is EXTREMELY HARD! Losing my vision every time I have an attack and basically constant fear of eating,due to pain, can cause Depression, despair, anger, loneliness, fear were all things I felt. But deep within my soul I began to hope and stay strong and positive for my Boys 🙏🏼💛 There will good and bad days and I know not everyone will understand. #chronsdisease #mutliplesclerosis #autoimmunedisease #ms #opticneuritis #gastritis

Is it really the “diet” that’s wrong — or is it something else? How come some people can follow a diet, like paleo or the autoimmune protocol, and be just fine — while others fall off the wagon pretty quick? • I thought for a long time that I was anti-diet, but I’m starting to shift to anti-restriction. I currently eat about 85% in accordance with the paleo diet and one day, or for some season, I might eat 100% in accordance with the Paleo diet - or even the AIP diet. • I don’t think there’s anything wrong with choosing to eat in accordance with a set of principles or ideas. I tend to trust what I read about the autoimmune protocol as a way to heal my autoimmune disease (or at least provide support for it), so I want to implement those principles and ideas as best I can. • What I think makes the difference between a traditional diet and a lifestyle is internal. It’s in the FEELINGS - in the force, restriction, emotional attachment, and deprivation vs. love, freedom, and choice. • This is important because the biological response to physical or emotional deprivation is binge eating (which can lead to a host of other things). This means that when we physically don’t eat enough OR when we feel restricted by what we can eat...our bodies interpret it as the same...as deprivation that threatens survival. • The problem with most diets, even the ones designed not for weight less but for health, is that much of the rules and the language explaining these diets and how they “work” calls for emotional and physical deprivation as a barrier to entry. • To eat in accordance with Whole30, Paleo, or AIP principles in a way that ISN’T a diet, we’ve got to stop talking about rules and regulations and start talking about mindset. About the way in which we approach these “diets”. We’re learning that traditional diets do not work. But maybe diets themselves are not always the culprits. Instead, the rules, the stigmas, the shame, the fear of weight gain or desire for weight loss, the call for emotional and physical deprivation…maybe THIS is what we have to address. • I would love to hear about your experiences with these kinds of diets, especially ones “for health”... How did it go?

Hi there 👋🏼 my name is Keri and this is my thyroid disease story - Part 1: I was diagnosed in June 2013 with Graves Disease (hyperthyroidism). I started having symptoms in March 2012. I had hand tremors to the point of not being able to put my key in the doorknob without the use of both hands. I’d have night sweats. “Unexplained” weight loss and crazy mood swings where I questioned my own sanity. The symptom that sent me to the doctor in 2013 is when I had a panic attack. I couldn’t swallow or breathe and my heart rate would not slow down even after calming myself. My resting heart rate at that point was 130 beats per minute. Did you know people suffer from heart failure if their thyroid disease (hyperthyroidism) goes untreated? Your thyroid controls just about everything, from your metabolism to your muscle control to your digestive function. My Endocrinologist performed an ultrasound on my neck and showed me my own cells attacking my thyroid because it wasn’t working properly. I was placed on anti-thyroid medication that same day. #gravesdisease #thyroiddisease #hyperthyroidism #thyroiddiseaseawareness #autoimmunedisease #chronicillness #transformation #invisibleillness #thyroid

✋Who do you know that is dealing with psoriasis or eczema? These products are NOT just about weight-loss! It is about overall health! This is a great testimony. Even kids are getting great results these products. Check out what Kayla has to say about her son : “One product I will no longer go without, for my ENTIRE family, is Pro bio 5. Why? Not only has it helped me with so many issues, take a look at my son. This past June he started to suffer severely from Guttate Psoriasis. The doctors had no clue what brought it on and were assuming it was just a case of strep throat or a virus but couldn’t figure out which it was. Well, everything was coming back negative and I began losing hope as to figuring out the root cause. We tried many things to try and clear it up. Antibiotics, creams, shampoos, foams, lotions, topical medications, moisturizers, everything. You name it, we tried it. Some things seemed to start helping him out a little bit, but never fully cleared him up- especially his scalp. We were finally referred to a dermatologist. The dermatologist did all the same things, and again, he starting seeing some results but nothing fully cleared him up. His skin seemed to get somewhat better with sunlight and so we had to shave his head in hopes his scalp would get better as well. It didn’t. Cole was a trooper through this all. People made rude comments at the base pool in front of him telling their children he was going to hurt them and make them sick and give them owies. People stared. People asked questions. It did not even phase him. He is such a good sport. The only times he was phased by it is when we would try and do anything with his head/hair. The scabs that formed were attached to his hair follicles so it would hurt him when we would try and brush or cut his hair, look through his hair to inspect his head and see what the progress was etc. Finally, I learned about the connection between gut health bacteria and psoriasis, eczema, and many skin conditions really. Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition. I am so so happy I learned about probiotics. #eczema #psoriasis #autoimmunedisease #autoimmune #skinproblems #probiotics #kidshealth #child
