Dr. Starbuck’s Health Tips for  Kids teaches children about the human body, common health issues, and simple ways to stay healthy. This program offers a fun way to educate and empower children.

Using language easily understood by children, Dr. Jamison Starbuck explains how different parts of the body function.  She also discusses individual health complaints and common illnesses kids might experience, and describes ways to treat everyday ailments with safe, simple, effective natural remedies.

Dr. Starbuck, a licensed naturopathic family physician and an attorney, presents information in a thoughtful and careful way. She also cautions listeners to discuss any health issue or treatment plan with their parents/guardians before using any remedies discussed in the program.

This program helps children understand their bodies and choices – including those about food, exercise, sleep, and communication – that will affect their health for the rest of their lives.  Dr. Starbuck’s Health Tips for Kids also helps children interact more effectively with their own doctor using language and knowledge they’ve learned.

Listen Saturday mornings during the Children's Corner. Or online anytime.

Hi! I’m Dr. Jamison Starbuck, a naturopathic family physician. I’m here today to give you health tips on a painful ailment: sore throats.

Doctors call sore throats ‘pharyngitis.’ That’s because the back of the throat is called the pharynx, P-H-A-R-Y-N-X, and ‘itis’ means something is inflamed. So if you have pharyngitis, you have a throat that is sore and swollen and hurts.

Hi!  I’m Dr. Jamison Starbuck, a naturopathic family physician.  I’m here today to give you health tips on what might seem like a creepy topic:  warts.

But not just any warts. I’m talking about plantar warts. Do you know where plantar warts grow?

On your feet!

The word “plantar”, spelled p-l-a-n-t-a-r, is an adjective describing things related to the sole of your foot.

The sole of your foot is like the sole of your shoe. It’s the bottom. And that’s where a plantar wart grows.

Hi!  I’m Dr. Jamison Starbuck. I’m a naturopathic family physician and I’m here today to talk about ways to feel better when you’ve got a COLD.

Everybody knows what a cold is, right? Stuffy nose, watery eyes. Your head feels heavy and your throat is scratchy.  You just don’t feel good.

Hi!  I’m Dr. Jamison Starbuck, a naturopathic family physician. I’m here today to give you health tips on two chilly topics: frostbite and frostnip.

The difference between frostbite and frostnip is like the difference between a dog bite and a dog nip. A bite hurts a lot and might leave a scar. A nip hurts, but it doesn’t usually cut the skin, and the pain goes away quickly.

Hi!  I’m Dr. Jamison Starbuck, a naturopathic family physician.  I’m here today to talk about two plants that I always think about during the Christmas season.

I bet most of you know about the Three Kings.  The Christmas story talks about them, three Wise Men who made a long journey riding through days and nights from the Far East to bring gifts to the baby Jesus in the manger.

Do you remember what the three gifts were?

They were gold, frankincense and myrrh.
