Leading the Healthy Kids Movement.
As an advocate for the protection of children’s health, Dr. Julie Wei believes that kids who are born healthy should stay healthy. An internationally recognized award-winning Pediatric Otolaryngologist (Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist for children), speaker, author of A Healthier Wei and co-author of Acid Reflux in Children, researcher and mother, she is passionate about getting your healthy kid off prescription medications and out of the medical system.
Dr. Julie Wei is leading the Healthy Kids Movement to:
- Provide an alternative to the overuse of prescription medications in kids.
- Share with children and families effective diet and lifestyle solutions that get results.
- Prevent and treat our kids’ common chronic ear, nose and throat symptoms.
- Get otherwise healthy children out of the medical system.
- Empower kids, families, caregivers, communities and physicians.
Be part of the Healthy Kids Movement.
Find out how and where you and your family can get started. Dr. Julie Wei intends to help you:
- Become aware of how foods and drinks can make your child sick.
- Be accountable for making changes to your child's diet and lifestyle.
- Take action by sharing with others what you've learned.
It's about awareness.
What’s wrong with my kid?
If your child, or a child you care for, is suffering from chronic cough, nasal congestion, stomach aches, sore throats, sinus infections, runny nose, and more, Dr. Julie Wei can help you understand why and how to stop symptoms.
It’s about accountability.
Let’s look at diet and lifestyle.
The wrong combination of what our kids eat and when they eat can make them seem "sick." A warm glass of milk before bedtime can cause a runny nose for the entire next day. Dr. Julie Wei suggests easy diet and lifestyle changes that will help your family, without prescription medicines or treatments.
It's about action.
What are we going to do about it?
Be part of the Healthy Kids Movement. Join Dr. Julie Wei and other parents, caregivers, educators and medical professionals to reclaim the health of misdiagnosed and overmedicated kids.
Dr. Wei, I think your mission is amazing. It is important to begin helping children and their caregivers truly understand how daily diet and lifestyle choices can impact overall health. I appreciate a doctor who honestly admits that medicine is not always the best response and who actually promotes a more natural, holistic lifestyle as a means to be in control of our bodies and overall health. I get tired of going to doctors who still push certain medicines even when I ask about more natural means. Thank you.

Healthy Kids stories.
HENRI: They said it was "Baby Asthma."
For a couple of years, we went back and forth between treating Henri for allergies, cold, and cough — plus, he was still taking some meds for asthma. By the time we were referred to Dr. Wei, we’d mentally prepared ourselves for the possibility that Henri might never be truly well.
Henri's full story
QUINN: The Doctors would always announce "Croup."
We had her tonsils taken out, praying this would solve the problem. It did not. Her croup continued late in third grade and into fourth and fifth grades. She missed weeks of school each year, sometimes totaling over a whole month.

ELLIOTT: We didn’t know my son didn’t need all these antibiotics.
Every morning he would complain of a sore throat. Our pediatrician thought Elliot was probably struggling with recurring strep infection that he had tested positive for at one point, but his symptoms just didn’t clear up completely.
