  1. I love Dr Mumpers approach to paediatrics, it was really interesting to hear her approach to vaccinations and nutritional deficiencies. It is something I really subscribe to. Listening to the mum is so important
    and her relationship with her child is paramount.

  2. I wish I could take my asd son to a pediatrician like her. I just don’t have access to this kind of care financially. I hope this is the future of pediatrics and I wish I could get this kind of care at my son’s Doctor where insurance covers his visits and treatments. Is there a way I could find a pediatrician like this in Charlotte NC?

    1. Finding (and then affording) somebody who gets it like this can be tricky, but much can be learned by a simple yet determined parent, (especially thanks to things like this summit). 🙂 This book above helped me. Sometimes something as simple as noting all the constant white spots on the nails and adding a steady, small amount of zinc to the diet can be something (or was for us). Food sources are a good way to be sure we are doing no harm until we can get help from a professional, but even too much of certain healthy foods (like with salycilates?) can cause problems, so we have to keep track and a very keen eye. B-complex can also help, but then too much can eventually worsen things for people who “overmethylate.” The methylation cycle is so tricky to try to really grasp, I think maybe even for doctors. With my son, keeping him away from BHT and certain food dyes and sugar was huge. (All can cause brain inflammation). I can really offer no advice but certainly wish anyone well who is a parent really beginning to look for answers. Good luck on your journey. 🙂

  3. Kudos to Dr Mumper
    Lovey fireplace chat and very valuable practical tips are shared, which a lot of Doctors like myself and NP’s and PA’s who are helping the patients can use in a typical day – Thanks again

  4. Very warm and generous physician who shared her many interseting and clinically useful experiences and suggestions with the audience .

  5. Dr. Mumper has made a big difference in the life of my son – we are thankful that she stepped out of traditional medicine to make a real difference in the world. Great interview!
