Nov 29, 2021 | Season 3


Dr. Sarah Rahal is a double board-certified pediatric neurologist, board certified headache specialist, also trained in functional medicine and environmental health. She trained at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York and previously was Assistant Professor of Neurology and Pediatrics at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in NY where she ran the pediatric headache program, and also sat on the board of the National Headache Foundation.

Currently, she is the founder and CEO of ARMRA – a consumer health company that harnesses the power of bioactives from the natural superfood colostrum to develop solutions that address the modern root causes that threaten health.

Dr. Rahal shares the fascinating link between our mucosal barriers and all modern chronic disease, and why this may be the key to keeping our gut and immune systems healthy. Colostrum, aka “Liquid Gold”, has incredible healing properties for not only newborns, but adults as well. She provides recommendations on consuming and supplementing this key nutrient to help us through our current health epidemic.
