So, I’ve been reading about this new eTNS system that was recently approved by the FDA and it kinda freaked me out. The thoughts of me using this on my kid!? I’m not a medical professional, but my dear friend Dr. Jen IS. (her bio is here and she’s been on the podcast before today- you can listen to that here). I wanted to get her medical option and thoughts about this new machine.. and she freaked out too! So I invited her to come visit and share her opinion and about what she has learned with you. Let’s talk and discuss. Enjoy!
