Hi! I’m Dr. Jamison Starbuck, a naturopathic family physician. I’m here today with health tips for kids about: the winter solstice.

On the winter solstice, which is coming right up on December 21, the day is the shortest and the night is the longest of the whole year. This happens because on the solstice, the northern hemisphere of earth is tilted as far away from the sun as it ever goes. This not only makes the days short, it also makes the sun rise and set far south in our horizon.

Hi! I’m Dr. Jamison Starbuck, a naturopathic family physician. I’m here today with health tips for kids about indigestion.

Indigestion is the belly ache you get when the food you ate feels like a great big lump in your stomach. Your food isn’t breaking down, it’s not dissolving into a liquid the way it should. It’s just stuck there, feeling bad.
