About Kid's Health Revolution
Hi, I’m Deborah Morgan creator and head revolutionary at Kids Health Revolution. I am a fierce mama bear to one busy little boy who has been the inspiration and motivation for my mission to help parents take action and help their kids. I know how excruciating it can be to watch our kids struggle with chronic health issues and how helpless we feel.
My son was 2 years old and I had taken him to the doctor to check out what I thought was an innocent white spot on his skin. So, I was totally unprepared for the news that he had an autoimmune condition called vitiligo and that there was not much for treatment options other than some dubious results with heavy duty steroid creams. Even worse, I was told that his immune system could turn on other organs of his body too and we would just have to find a way to live with this condition.
Talk about shocked, big huge bomb just dropped on my life in that office. I remember feeling really scared and confused…even angry. But even in that moment standing in her office there was a part of me deep inside that was rebelling. I could not believe that there was absolutely nothing that could be done for my son’s 2 year old body to help it find its natural balance again. It did not seem right to me and I felt like I will be damned if I am just going to lay down and take this.
I accepted that my son had a health condition but I did not accept for one minute that there was not some way we could improve his health and chances at a happy, healthy life. I knew I had to look deeper and if I could not find answers then at least I knew that I had tried everything I could to help him. So began my journey deep into the world of holistic and functional medicine and nutrition.
We scrapped together the funds to consult a functional medicine doctor here in my home town and he told us we should put our son on a specific dietary protocol and ordered some tests. Then off I went to figure this diet thing out on my own! That is another day etched in my memory! I was so overwhelmed by the changes I would have to make for this protocol that I sat in my car after the appointment and cried!
I had no idea where to begin, how to make it work for us, how we were going to live some semblance of a normal life, how we would travel or go to parties…so much swimming around in my head that I honestly just wanted to ditch the entire idea! But I knew that I couldn’t do that. If this could help I had to try. Once I pulled myself together enough to drive…on the trip home I made a decision. I was going to research and find out how this diet worked before I went any further. Once I started reading about how diet in general affects health I started to understand about the gut, its connection to overall health and how food could be a powerful tool for making dramatic improvements in health. I was sold! This was something non-invasive with no side effects that could potentially make all the difference to my son’s life…how could I not give it a go? We had nothing to lose but a bit of time figuring it out and everything to gain.
We dove in with both feet and within a few months were noticing dramatic changes in my son’s health! I was hooked and went back to school to train in Holistic Nutrition and become GAPS certified because I knew I had to share this power with other parents so they could make a difference for their own kids.
I know what it is like to search for answers, search for solutions, any little bit of hope that you can help your child and not just have to live with this. I also know what it is like to feel overwhelmed by the information out there and figuring out how to make the necessary changes and still live life. That is the whole reason I have created Kids Health Revolution. It is a place to feel empowered and to find trustworthy information that is based not only on cutting edge functional medicine and science but on personal experience. It is about not having to feel alone and overwhelmed and finding the support and tools that you need to take action without having to make it your full time job. (and hopefully saving you a few tears and moments of crying in your car!) The resources and programs you will find here are not only about what you need to do but also how to do it and stay sane!
If you have child with any chronic health condition including but not limited to:
- Depression and/or Anxiety
I hope that you will dig in here and find the hope and information you are searching for. It really is possible for us to make huge improvements in our children’s health. We have an immense power in our own hands to influence their future health and happiness. Don’t ever underestimate it.
Take the Leaky Gut Quiz and see if this maybe an underlying factor for your child.

I am not a medical doctor. I am a certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant, certified GAPS practitioner and certified Counsellor. My experience and personal research in order to help my son has taught me a lot about autoimmune and chronic illness from this holistic and functional medicine perspective and I want to share that information with you. This information is just that. It is for educational purposes only and is not intended to diagnose, treat or replace medical advice.
