HUMANITY & RUMINANTS: PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE
PRESENTED BY PETER BALLERSTEDT, PHD ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15
Modern human beings exist because of ruminants. Today’s societies depend upon ruminant animal agriculture. We must improve the productivity and efficiency of worldwide ruminant animal agriculture if we’re going to meet the needs of the mid-21st century. This presentation will introduce the audience to ruminant animals, the essential ecological functions they perform and humanity’s relationship with them.
FORAGE AGRICULTURE IS SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE
PRESENTED BY PETER BALLERSTEDT, PHD ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16
Forage agriculture is the world’s largest, most climate-resilient form of agriculture. In addition to the production of nutrient dense animal source foods, forage agriculture performs many ecosystem services. Forage agriculture is an integral and indispensable part of all sustainable agriculture systems. Grassland ecosystems, forage growth, grazing management, nutrient and water cycles, and soil health will also be discussed.
THE POWERFUL SIMPLICITY OF RECOVERING WITH REAL FOOD
PRESENTED BY MANDY BLUME ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17
In this antagonistic world, it is paramount that we demonstrate with a gentle, kind, resolve the incredible hope and power of eating real foods properly prepared. After seeing tremendous success in recovering the health of our kids and foster kids, we now write the menu and volunteer at local orphanages and Foster Group Homes. It’s quick to turn around health in these children to a much better place. The results are nothing short of phenomenal! Our goal is to document our success and encourage replication across the country. We will see effects on our prison systems, reduction of national financial costs and, most importantly, the future of our children--including 400,000 orphan children--improved.
THE ART, SCIENCE AND STORY OF FERMENTATION
The ever-expanding body of scientific literature connecting the gut to the function of all other systems highlights the importance of gut health more than ever. Yet, our culture supports all the things that damage this inner ecosystem. As a nation, our health is worse than ever. Every culture throughout history has practiced fermentation, could this be a missing piece? Fermentation is where art, science and health meet. In a world that is so disconnected and dis-eased, our mission is to help heal some of the spaces between us, and spaces within us, by engaging in something most of us love to do…eat. This talk will explore the history of fermentation, the ways in which modern science is supporting ancient wisdom and the art behind mastering this craft. You’ll learn why you should ferment and what, exactly, that means, as well as how to get started in your own kitchen.
THE VACCINATED VERSUS UNVACCINATED CHILDREN AND THE RISK OF CHRONIC DISEASES
PRESENTED BY NATALIE CAMPBELL, MS, PT, NTP ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15
I plan to summarize what I have learned from interviews with thirty-five families concerning their experience with vaccination. (Many more families were considered who did not meet my criteria.) These families all began by having their children vaccinated according to CDC recommendations for children born in whatever year each child was born. For various reasons each family decided to decrease and eventually stop vaccinating subsequent children, thereby meeting my criteria of two hundred children residing in households containing both vaccinated and completely unvaccinated children. Besides counting cases of each chronic health condition reported, I also looked for patterns in differing responses to vaccines in different families. Studying “children” born between the years of 1970 and 2017 gave me the opportunity to examine the health effects (or disease effects) of the changing vaccine schedules. Other topics will be a description of a pertussis epidemic among some of the families, and the too common situation of spouses who do not agree about vaccination. I will finish with some advice for parents who decide not to vaccinate their children.
BIOLOGIC DENTISTRY: MOUTHFUL OF EVIDENCE
PRESENTED BY GRIFFIN COLE, DDS NMD ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15
This entertaining presentation will show how biologic dentistry differs from traditional (mainstream) dentistry. Dr. Cole will discuss how the mouth provides a lot of evidence regarding one’s overall systemic health. He will focus on diagnoses and treatment modalities aimed at helping the body heal, rather than traditional symptom alleviation.
BROTHS AND STOCKS: TIMELESS REMEDIES FOR VIBRANT HEALTH TODAY
PRESENTED BY MONICA CORRADO, MA, CNC ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15
From the beginning of time, people have used bones to make nourishing stocks. Monica Corrado, teaching chef, certified GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) practitioner and member of the honorary board of the WAPF returns to teach about what it takes to make a nourishing broth or stock, from the pots and water to the types of bones and timing. Learn about the nutrient components that make stocks healing and how to achieve them. Learn what it takes to make a gelatinous stock every time. Whether you are new to cooking stock and broth, or an old hand, have your questions answered in this lively, informative cooking session.
CULTURING DAIRY FOR EVERYONE (EVEN THE LACTOSE-INTOLERANT)
PRESENTED BY MONICA CORRADO, MA, CNC ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15
Raw? Pasteurized? A1? A2? Grass-fed? Grain-fed? Vitamin A and vitamin K! Guernseys, Jerseys, Swiss Browns... Holsteins? Liquid milk can be hard to digest even in its most natural state: fresh from the cow, aka "raw". Pasteurized milk is always hard on the digestive tract. Traditional peoples all over the world have cultured their milk in order to make it easier to digest and to increase its nutrient content. Culturing also pre-digests milk proteins (casein) and milk sugar (lactose), adds probiotics and increases live enzymes. Lactose intolerant? You can enjoy yogurt and kefir and sour cream again! Throw out those calcium pills and learn how to make easily digested, bio-available cultured dairy products, including yogurt, kefir, sour cream and creme fraiche. (Culturing dairy for GAPS will also be covered.)
CANCER AND THE NEW BIOLOGY OF WATER
The current model of cancer and its treatment is a failure. New discoveries about the properties of water, particularly water inside the cell, can serve as a blueprint for more successful cancer treatment and a model medicine in the 21st century.
ASK THE PRACTITIONER PANEL
We are excited to offer a panel of highly qualified practitioners and our moderator, Sally Fallon Morell. The panel includes Tom Cowan, MD, Ben Edwards, MD, Anthony Jay, PhD, Becky Plotner, ND, Pam Schoenfeld, RD and Nasha Winters, ND with moderator Sally Fallon Morell. Each practitioner will briefly describe his/her treatment philosophy. Next, the moderator will read questions from the audience regarding treatments for various illnesses as well as how food is incorporated into treatments. Questions should be of a general nature; this is not a place for individual medical advice or your personal medical history. Paper will be provided for questions.
IT’S TIME TO RE-THINK YOUR WATER! SOLUTIONS THAT PROVIDE YOUR FAMILY WITH SAFE, CLEAN AND GREAT TASTING WATER THROUGHOUT YOUR HOME
SPONSOR PRESENTED BY TOM DIGIUSEPPE, PhD (RADIANT LIFE COMPANY) ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16
Water is an important part of our health and we all know the importance of providing our family with safe, clean drinking water. Yet hundreds of toxic chemicals have been found in our drinking water. These contaminants enter our rivers, lakes and streams and ultimately end up in the water supplied to our homes.
The good news is that solutions exist for removing these toxic contaminants from your incoming water supply. During this presentation we will describe whole house water filtration systems that provide clean, filtered water throughout your entire home along with counter top and under counter filtration systems for filtering your drinking water. Finally, for those looking to have absolutely pristine drinking water, we will describe water purification systems which incorporate technologies to purify, restructure and remineralize your drinking water to create water as close to the way nature intended it to be.
So please join us for an informative discussion of water filtration and purification systems available to you for providing your family with safe, clean water throughout your home.
KEYNOTE: DIETARY SENSE AND NONSENSE IN THE WAR ON SATURATED FAT AND CHOLESTEROL
PRESENTED BY DAVID DIAMOND, PHD ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16
For the past seventy years there has been a concerted effort to demonize saturated fat and cholesterol, found in animal-derived food and tropical oils. Despite the well-established health benefits of diets rich in cholesterol and saturated fat, flawed, deceptive and biased research has created the myth that a lowfat, plant-based diet is ideal for good health. I will provide a historical perspective on how poorly conducted epidemiological research, U.S. government intervention and misinformation conveyed by contemporary lifestyle researchers have contributed to the current state of confusion on dietary influences on health.
DEMONIZATION AND DECEPTION IN TARGETING CHOLESTEROL AS A CAUSE OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
PRESENTED BY DAVID DIAMOND, PHD ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17
The reputed role of high serum cholesterol as a causal factor in coronary heart disease (CHD) has been a source of controversy and debate for decades. Today millions of healthy people are on statins, which are drugs that reduce cholesterol levels. Moreover, the number of healthy people on statins will increase considerably if current guidelines from the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association are followed. Despite many contradictory findings, advocates for cholesterol reduction have praised statins as “miracle drugs” which provide “the best anti-atherosclerotic insurance”. However, close inspection of the clinical trial findings reveals that the apparent benefit of statins is much less impressive than clinicians and the general public have been led to believe. I will discuss how biased research has created the false appearance that cholesterol causes heart disease and that statins are wonder drugs that save lives. I will describe how researchers have used deceptive statistics to give health care providers and the public the false impression that statins produce a dramatic reduction in the incidence of cardiovascular disease and mortality. I will also point out that the minuscule benefits of statins are offset by their well-documented adverse effects, such as promoting the development of type 2 diabetes, cognitive impairments, cataracts, muscle pain and wasting, and increased incidence of cancer. This talk will serve as a wake-up call for the public to educate themselves on how to optimize their diet and cardiovascular health without depending on medication.
TOXIC IRON AND THE MASTER ANTIOXIDANT
PRESENTED BY BEN EDWARDS, MD ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17
Iron is essential for life. However, excess iron that is not properly chaperoned is deadly as it will combine with oxygen to rust you from the inside out (aka “oxidative stress”). Oxidative stress is the common denominator of all western disease from Alzheimer’s to cancer to coronary artery disease. Since iron has been fortified into the American food supply since the 1940s and the body recycles iron very effectively with no known iron excretion pathway other than bleeding, most Americans are over-saturated with iron in their tissues. Are you really “anemic” or is the iron just stuck in the tissues? Come learn how bioavailable copper found most prominently in organ meats along with animal-based vitamin A (aka retinol) are essential for chaperoning iron and also essential to the master antioxidant needed to deal with this iron-induced oxidative stress.
SEMINAR ON TRADITIONAL DIETS
PRESENTED AS AN ALL DAY SEMINAR BY SALLY FALLON MORELL ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16
Animal fats, organ meats, properly prepared whole grains, fermented foods and nourishing bone broths kept our ancestors healthy. Sally Fallon Morell, author of Nourishing Traditions, explains why these are vital factors for maintaining good health today. Beginning with a presentation showing Dr. Weston Price’s unforgettable photographs of healthy traditional peoples, Ms. Fallon Morell explains the underlying factors in a variety of traditional diets, which conferred beauty, strength and freedom from disease on so-called primitive populations. Then she presents a step-by-step plan to put nourishing traditional foods—foods that your family will actually eat—back into your diet, including easy breakfast cereals, soups, sauces, snack foods, fermented condiments and soft drinks that are actually good for you.
Butter, the number one health food;
The vital role of high-cholesterol foods;
Why low-fat and vegan diets don’t work;
The amazing powers of raw whole milk from pastured-fed cows;
The dangers of modern soy foods and soy infant formula;
The conspiracy to promote vegetable oils and hydrogenated fats;
Foods that help babies grow up smart and strong;
Old-fashioned foods that give limitless energy and vibrant health; and,
The unfortunate consequences of modern farming methods.
This seminar is highly recommended for both laymen and health professionals new to the work of the Weston A. Price Foundation and makes an excellent introduction to the main conference speakers.
Introduction to the Work of Weston A. Price and Characteristics of Healthy Diets: Introduction to
Dr. Price’s work and discussion of the underlying characteristics of healthy traditional diets.
Know Your Fats: Fats and oils in traditional diets. Learn about the basics of lipid biochemistry and how to choose good fats and avoid the bad.
How to Change Your Diet for the Better: Practical advice for busy people including easy recipes for snacks, soups, breakfasts, desserts and enzyme-enriched beverages and condiments.
PRESENTED BY SALLY FALLON MORELL ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17
The shopper is faced with a bewildering number of choices at the grocery store--and even at the health food store. This talk will cover some of the main red flags on food labels for those who wish to eat as healthy a diet as possible--and also ingredients that are not labeled!
LEARN TO PLAY THE ORGANS: LIVER, BRAINS AND TONGUE
PRESENTED BY JANINE FARZIN ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16
You know you are supposed to be serving up organs every week, but in practice it’s not happening. We’ll outline common barriers to enjoying organs and how to overcome them. Focusing on the most nutrient-dense of the organs (liver, brains and tongue), we’ll break down why you need more, how to prep them for cooking and share several recipes for novice and advanced cooks alike.
WHAT'S WRONG WITH MODERN SKIN CARE, HOW OUR ANCESTORS CARED FOR THEIR SKIN AND HOW YOU CAN DO THE SAME (Including the Best Way to Render Animal Fats)
PRESENTED BY ANDREW GARDNER ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16
Lotions, serums, creams, moisturizers, deodorants, antiperspirants, sunscreens, etc., etc. The list of products we're told to put on our skin is endless. But what's in these products, is there more in them than what's listed on the label and is any of it good for our skin? What does common sense tell us about what we should be putting on our skin? What did our ancestors use on their skin before petroleum products, rancid industrial vegetable oils and chemically fractionated plant products? And does science back up the effectiveness of what our ancestors used? In this talk, you will learn the answers to all of these questions and have ample time to ask your own. You will also learn how to make your own ancestral skin care products, complete with a tutorial on the little-known easiest and most effective way to render animal fats, which is a valuable lesson all by itself even if skin care isn't your primary interest.
THE GOKHALE METHOD: HOW WOULD WESTON A. PRICE HAVE APPROACHED BACK PAIN?
PRESENTED BY ESTHER GOKHALE ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16
Weston A. Price compared people in non-industrial societies who stayed in their natural context with those who traveled to an industrial context in order to discover which dietary elements help preserve natural facial structure, dentition and more. There is a parallel lesson to be derived in body structure. By studying people in similarly non-industrial settings and comparing them with people who are transplanted into more industrial settings, we can also discern some key principles that help perpetuate musculoskeletal health. From ancient Indian villagers and artisans to modern-day African cement factory workers, from generations of Dutch cheesemakers to high-tech employees in Silicon Valley, Weston A. Price’s insights hold true today and reveal that, just because someone comes from a non-industrialized culture, they are not exempt from back pain. In Africa, whereas there is evidence in the medical literature of low incidence of back pain in some cultures, in more modern times and industrialized settings these statistics point to higher rates than modern Western societies suffer. What happened? What are the changes? What are the shifts that bring these about? How can we in modern times recover best practices from ancestral populations, so that we can, in spite of modernization and industrialization, continue to enjoy the high levels of physical function our ancestors did?
ARTIFICIAL [ESTROGEN] INTELLIGENCE
PRESENTED BY ANTHONY JAY, PHD ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15
Every single day, most people are exposed to a number of artificial estrogen chemicals. These never-before-found-in-nature chemicals disrupt natural sex hormones and drive a number of rising health problems, even inheritable health problems. Furthermore, these chemicals are additive because the body perceives them as the same thing. What these specific chemicals are, what they do to our health and how to avoid them will all be discussed.
STRAIGHT-SHOOTING STEM CELLS
PRESENTED BY ANTHONY JAY, PHD ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16
What is the science behind injecting someone else’s stem cells into your body and how can you upgrade your own stem cells without injections? Why did the FDA recently restrict stem cell use in the U.S. even while more professional athletes than ever are leaving the country to get injections? These are the topics discussed by an insider who has worked with and studied human stem cells at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.
HEALING LEAKY GUT
PRESENTED BY KIRAN KRISHNAN ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17
Over a decade worth of microbiome research has revealed a clear pathology to leaky gut and intestinal barrier function. The research has also described the fundamental dysfunctions in the Standard American Gut that leads to severe leaky gut and ultimately to chronic disease. It is quite surprising that conditions as varied as gastroesophageal reflux, clinical depression, diabetes, autoimmune disease, obesity and even cancers have the same cause driving the risk and development of the disease despite these conditions manifesting in such different ways. As we come to understand the standard and common dysfunctions of the microbiome and the intestinal lining, we can begin to repair and rebuild our most vital system. Intelligent modulation of the microbiota, the rebuilding of the mucosal structures and reestablishment of the tight-junctions will play a significant role in truly effective therapeutics to address the vast majority of chronic conditions. In this talk, we will discuss the most common pathology of leaky gut that is driven by dysbiosis. We will also cover the origin of chronic illness in this modern age.
MILLER’S REVIEW OF CRITICAL VACCINE STUDIES: IMPORTANT SCIENTIFIC PAPERS SUMMARIZED
PRESENTED BY NEIL Z. MILLER ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15
Primum non nocere is Latin for "First, do no harm," one of the guiding principles of medical care. Yet there is a large body of scientific evidence confirming numerous vaccine safety deficits that counteract well-publicized benefits. For example, several peer-reviewed studies show that mercury and aluminum in vaccines can cause neurological, immunological and developmental harm. Other studies show that childhood vaccines are associated with an increased risk of cancer, allergies, seizures, bleeding disorders, and type 1 diabetes. Many people sincerely believe that all vaccines are safe, adverse reactions are rare, and no peer-reviewed scientific studies exist showing that vaccines can cause harm. In this presentation, conference attendees will learn the other side of the story that is not commonly told. For example, scientific papers published in prestigious, high-impact medical journals show that: a history of measles and mumps is protective against fatal heart attacks and strokes; the pertussis vaccine caused virulent vaccine-resistant strains of pertussis to emerge; chickenpox vaccines reduced cases of chickenpox but increased shingles cases; children have an increased risk of requiring emergency care after receiving MMR; vaccinated people can spread disease, making "herd immunity" an unrealistic goal; parents who reject vaccines for their children are highly educated.

GAPS, Stage by Stage will thoroughly cover the reasons why we do each GAPS foods at each stage, laying out the protocol in an easy-to-follow manner. GAPS is all about reducing inflammation so the body begins to speak to you, telling you what to do. When you support the body properly, it can repair itself. When we miss these signs, it can prolong the journey.
SURVIVING THE 5G NEVER ENCOUNTERED BY OUR ANCESTORS
PRESENTED BY ELIZBETH PLOURDE, C.L.S., NCMP, Ph.D. ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15
Today, there has been a rampant escalation of wireless technologies throughout the world, especially in affluent countries. People led to believe that their lives will be easier and more convenient have incorporated these radiation emitting devices into their lives without understanding how EMF radiations are cumulative--the same as nuclear radiations. The EMF sensitivity symptoms take longer to show up, and are symptoms that are commonly found in many diseases, therefore the wireless radiations are not being investigated as the cause of the distress, cancers and the accelerated aging that many are experiencing today. This presentation will cover the many symptoms that EMF radiations cause, along with the biochemical explanations for the symptoms. It also includes a detailed action guide that will assist participants in reducing EMF exposures, as well as guidelines for food that protects and repairs EMF damage, which will increase the efficacy of any treatment program they have incorporated to improve their health and well-being. These actions are even more imperative to take today as now there is an even greater threat due to the roll out of 5G, which requires a multitude of small cell antennas placed closer to our homes and businesses.
WHAT HAVE WE DONE TO WHEAT AND HOW CAN WE FIX IT
PRESENTED AS A SEMINAR BY ROBERT QUINN ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15
For thousands of years wheat has been known as "the staff of life” and was the foundation of some of the greatest civilizations known to man, the Egyptians, the Babylonians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Europeans and now the North Americans. However, this has changed suddenly over the past seventy years and today we have up to 20% of the U.S. population who can no longer tolerate eating wheat and another 20% who occasionally dabble with wheat-free/gluten-free diets. The staff of life is broken. What has happened to cause these serious problems and what can be done to mend the staff of life and restore wheat to the center of a healthy diet as was the case for so many thousands of years? This presentation will explore where we have gone wrong with our wheat starting with modern industrial production systems on the farm and increasing efficiency in processing at both the mill and the bakery. In addition, wheat plant breeders are changing wheat to be more suitable for these modern industrialized systems. All of these changes have been in the name of high production and low cost so that we can be assured of abundant cheap food. We now see that this cheap food has a very high cost. The price is not paid at the checkout counter. Many are already demonstrating what can be done to reverse the damage done. The presentation will be focused more on solutions than the problem.
CANNABIS - THE BASICS AND BEYOND
PRESENTED BY KAREN RANDALL ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15
Karen Randall will offer a discussion of the basic science of cannabis. It will include a brief discussion about plant basics and how current cannabis has changed. Additionally, she will cover the medical harms being seen with chronic and acute THC use. CBD use has drastically increased across the country, but is the product on the shelf really safe? What are the harms? What are the potential benefits?
VITAMIN K2 MK-4 (ACTIVATOR X): FOR THE TREATMENT AND PREVENTION OF PHYSICAL DEGENERATION
PRESENTED BY WILL SCHLINSOG, DC ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17
Dr. Will Schlinsog will be sharing the latest news and research about Walkabout emu oil, the highest food source of naturally occurring vitamin K2 MK-4, Dr. Price's Activator X.
PRESENTED BY PAM SCHOENFELD, RD ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16
Vitamin A deficiency has generally been considered to be a "Third World" problem. But what is becoming increasingly clear is that this is no longer the case. A high percentage of individuals in developed nations are currently at risk for vitamin A deficiency, both because they consume almost no foods that are good sources of animal-based vitamin A and, because of gene and other biological differences, their bodies cannot adequately convert the carotenoids in plant foods to physiologically-essential vitamin A or retinol. I know firsthand because as a licensed dietitian-nutritionist, I see vitamin A deficiency daily in my practice, and I am almost always the first person on the medical care team to recognize it and address it. I see amazing results when the lack of vitamin A is corrected. In this presentation, I will discuss the myriad of essential functions that vitamin A plays a role in and the problems that can arise when an individual is deficient or even insufficient in their intake. I will also present recent discoveries showing that vitamin A is required for cognitive function, energy production, hormonal balance and what the WAPF has always taught, successful reproduction. While all ages are affected by vitamin A deficiency, during pregnancy and childhood the deleterious effects can be permanent. You will learn which foods provide vitamin A and how much to consume, why traditional nourishing diets are naturally rich in vitamin A, and what to do if you or your family are not regularly consuming liver--far and away the best dietary source of vitamin A. With so much focus on the fat-soluble vitamins D and K2, it is time that vitamin A once again had its moment in the sun! My goal is for you to take away information that could not only change your health and your health trajectory, but the health of your loved ones and even the future members of your family.
GLYPHOSATE: THE RATTLESNAKE IN THE CORN FIELDS
PRESENTED BY STEPHANIE SENEFF, PHD ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16
Glyphosate is the active ingredient in the pervasive herbicide Roundup. Although it kills all plants except those that have been engineered to resist it, it is considered to be practically nontoxic to humans. By contrast, my extensive research leads me to conclude that it is the most dangerous chemical in our environment today. Its toxicity has eluded scientific proof for many decades because it is a slow kill, such that it becomes difficult to connect the dots between exposure and disease states. I will provide strong evidence from the research literature that glyphosate is insidiously, cumulatively toxic through a unique mechanism involving substitution by mistake for the coding amino acid glycine during protein synthesis. This has widespread consequences and, in particular, can easily explain the correlations we are seeing between glyphosate usage on core crops and the rise in a long list of debilitating autoimmune, metabolic, neurological and oncological diseases. In addition to explaining the amazing chemistry behind glyphosate's path to destruction, I will also provide advice on how to protect yourself from glyphosate exposure and how to detox it.
PRESENTED BY JEFFREY SMITH ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15
While the debate rages on about GMOs and pesticides, this powerful film by Amy Hart and Jeffrey Smith, shares remarkable stories of people who regain their health after discovering the secret ingredients in their food and making a bold commitment to avoid them. The secret ingredients in our food may be a leading driver of our obesity, infertility, cancer, digestive problems, autism, brain fog, skin conditions, gluten sensitivity, allergies, fatigue, anxiety and many other conditions. Meet more than a dozen people who have turned around serious health conditions after adopting a diet that avoids genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and food sprayed with toxic herbicides like Roundup. Learn from leading physicians who say that these improvements are not coincidences. They see illness and recovery like this daily in their practice. Learn for scientists who explain why.
NOT BY BREAD ALONE DOTH MAN LIVE, EVEN IF IT'S SOURDOUGH: A CRITIQUE OF ANTIDEPRESSANTS AND THE MEDICAL MODEL IN PSYCHIATRY
PRESENTED BY JOSEPH TARANTOLO, MD ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16
Dr. Tarantolo will explore the pharmaceutical industry's strangulation of psychiatry and the medicalization of life's normal struggles. What is an "expert"? Can we trust clinical literature? So you want to go into psychotherapy. Will it break your heart?
HEALING IS VOLTAGE, PARTS I, II, III
PRESENTED BY JERRY TENNANT, MD ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17
Every organ in the body has its own battery pack to provide the -25 millivolts cells need to function and the -50 millivolts to make new cells when the old ones wear out or get damaged. Chronic disease only occurs when you lose the ability to make new cells that work. Our muscles are rechargeable batteries stacked one on top of each other in a specific order to form a battery pack. A stack of muscle batteries is what has been called an acupuncture meridian. Thus, chronic disease occurs when one or more of your battery packs won’t hold a charge. That leads us to the question, “Why won’t it hold a charge?” There are five reasons we have identified as to why a battery pack won’t hold a charge: not enough thyroid hormone, scars, dental infections, emotions and toxins. When the body has the voltage and the nutrients to make new cells, the body remembers how to heal itself. We will discuss each of these.
Two associates who are experts in emotional release and toxins will assist in talks. Dr. Amy Marshall will assist Dr. Tennant in the second lecture on Tennant Scalar Emotional Tuning and Dr. Chase Faldmo will assist in the third lecture on cancelling toxins with scalar energy.
WHOLE BODY HEALTH TESTS: SIMPLE TESTS TO DETERMINE YOUR CURRENT LEVEL OF HEALTH AND STRATEGIES FOR RESETTING IT
PRESENTED BY TIMOTHY WEEKS, DC ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15
Many people spend thousands of dollars trying to name their dysfunction or disease. Often, this name does little in helping you know the most basic questions - WHAT’S WRONG AND HOW DO YOU FIX IT. Dr. Timothy Weeks uses and teaches simple tests to determine overall health and functionality of the various systems of the body. By listening to the subtle language of the body and doing the tests he will teach, you can empower yourself and supercharge your healing. Systems he teaches tests for: cellular function and nutritional reserves; digestive function; endocrine function – adrenal, thyroid, hormone levels; oxygen function and aerobic fitness; and food allergies and sensitivities.
THE NEW HOMEOPATHIC SENSATION METHOD
PRESENTED BY LOUISA WILLIAMS, MS, DC, ND ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17
At the turn of this century a group of doctors in India developed a new homeopathic constitutional system they termed the “Sensation Method.” This new revolutionary technique in homeopathic case-taking is so extraordinarily effective that it has been referred to as “The greatest thing since Hahnemann!" During her talk Dr. Williams will explain the difference between acute and constitutional homeopathy, and why the new Sensation Method that is geared toward revealing the unconscious mind’s negatively-oriented patterning has been so successful. Wise Tradition participants should come away with a clearer understanding of how a carefully-chosen plant, animal or mineral homeopathic remedy is most accurately chosen, and why it is so essential in healing our often difficult-to-cure chronic symptoms.

Nutritionist and exercise physiologist, Lindsea Willon, will first detail the different fuel systems used during various activities and the nutrients required to maximize their output. Then she will discuss how to support the modern athlete holistically using traditional foods and nutritional therapy to reduce injury and optimize performance. You will walk away from this seminar with simple and effective strategies to up your game, no matter what level of field you play on.
HEALING WITH HUNGER: PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF INTERMITTENT FASTING
PRESENTED BY NASHA WINTERS, ND, FABNO, LAC, DIPL.OM ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 17
A discussion on when and how to incorporate the ancient healing power of fasting in modern times to increase longevity and treat and prevent chronic illness.
