HUMANITY AND 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.
