NOURISHING TRADITIONAL DIETS

PRESENTED BY SALLY FALLON MORELL ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14

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.

SEED OIL APOCALYPSE: ARE ‘VEGETABLE OILS’ THE UNIFYING MECHANISM FOR

WESTERNIZED DISEASES?

PRESENTED BY CHRIS KNOBBE, MD ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 13

A large and growing body of medical evidence concludes that heart disease, hypertension, stroke, cancers, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and other chronic diseases, have risen from the status of medical rarity, to the most common causes of morbidity and mortality.  Whereas the top three causes of death in the year 1900 were all infectious, by year 2000, seven of the top ten causes of death were secondary to chronic disease.  During the same time frame, we’ve witnessed industrially produced seed oils elevate to occupy up to a third of human consumption, or more.  Such oils rarely existed anywhere prior to 1865, globally, making them the single greatest change to nutrition in all of history.  Omega-6 rich seed oils, consumed to excess, may be the common precipitating factor of Westernized disease through numerous mechanisms, including prooxidative, proinflammatory, and toxic pathways, and inducement of nutrient-deficiency.  Furthermore, the cytotoxic, genotoxic, mutagenic, carcinogenic, atherogenic, thrombogenic, and obesogenic effects are now well-known.  Could seed oil consumption in excess be the primary reason that Westernized diseases are related epidemiologically and historically, as well as at the physiologic, microscopic, and molecular levels, by mitochondrial dysfunction?  The evidence is vast and compelling.

TRADITIONAL JAPANESE FERMENTED FOODS: TSUKEMONO, MISO AND NATTO

 

PRESENTED BY HEIDI NESTLER ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14

Fermentation is transformative and in some ways magical. Most cultures have fermented foods, yet each each has its own distinct ferments. In Japan, tsukemono, which translates as “pickled things," are made using a variety of different techniques. Some tsukemono are lacto-fermented with just salt and cabbage- familiar to anyone who has made sauerkraut- while others are made using a pickling "bed" of rice bran mash, miso or koji (the starter culture for miso).  Miso and natto, are two distinct soybean ferments which are typically eaten in small quantities as part of a traditional Japanese meal.  The various fermented foods at any given meal are prized not only for their health benefits, but also their complexity of flavors.  Heidi will provide an overview of these fermentation traditions and illustrate how to make your own tsukemono, miso and natto.

THE PERILS OF FIFTH GENERATION (5G) WIRELESS: HEALTH, ENVIRONMENT, POLITICS, AND PERSONAL SOLUTIONS

PRESENTED BY BEVERLY RUBIK, PhD ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13

5G involves higher frequency communication signals for new wireless technologies and plans are to install it worldwide. Millions of new 4G/5G antennas will be installed within our residential neighborhoods and close to schools. 42,000 low-orbit satellites will broadcast these waves from space. All this is for a wireless worldwide web and an “internet of things” that will forever change Earth’s electromagnetic environment. Yet there are serious concerns about the lack of safety standards; the growing problem of electrosensitivity; wireless radiation as a causal factor in cancer; exposure of vulnerable populations; environmental impact; and lack of affordable instrumentation to monitor our exposure.

 

In this presentation, you will learn what 5G entails; how it can impact our health and the environment; the political issues; and practical ways in which you can protect yourself. Dr. Rubik will especially focus on the scientific evidence for negative health and environmental effects. She will also demonstrate use of a low-cost meter to measure wireless radiation.

5G, CELL PHONES, THE WIRELESS REVOLUTION AND YOUR HEALTH

PRESENTED BY THEODORA SCARATO ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14

Learn about the hidden hazards in your cell phone and the risks posed by the 5G rollout. Most importantly, get the tools and resources you need to do something about it. 
 

Despite the fact that 5G is being rapidly rolled out in the USA, hundreds of scientists are calling to halt 5G. Over 180 cities in Italy have now passed Stop 5G resolutions and twenty countries conduct programs to educate citizens to reduce cell phone radiation. However, in the USA, our regulations are decades out of date. Although the biological effects of wireless and electromagnetic fields are well-established, cellphone companies have created a state of confusion by perpetuating the myth that these frequencies are harmless. 
 

Solutions exist. Simple steps to reduce wireless radiation and electromagnetic fields can have a huge impact on your health affecting everything from sleep to memory to reproductive health. Learn practical ways you can set up safe technology in your home and reduce cellphone radiation and promote safe technology in your children's schools and in your community. Learn how cities across the globe are stopping 5G. The time has come for safe technology.

GLYPHOSATE, DEUTERIUM AND CANCER: CONNECTING THE DOTS

PRESENTED BY STEPHANIE SENEFF, PhD ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14

Glyphosate is the active ingredient in the pervasive herbicide Roundup. I have been studying this demonic molecule for many years, yet I am only now realizing the enormity of the problems it causes to life. A fascinating story involves the mechanisms by which organisms (including humans) cope with the relatively rare isotope of hydrogen called deuterium.  Deuterium has a neutron as well as a proton, making it twice as heavy. It is naturally present in water, but, because it behaves differently from hydrogen, it presents difficulty to living systems.

All lifeforms have developed an eloquent system for filtering deuterium out of the water inside the mitochondria, and when this system is defective, mitochondria don't work properly. Mitochondrial dysfunction is associated with many different diseases, including Alzheimer's, autism, depression, autoimmune diseases, and cancer. By disrupting deuterium, glyphosate drives cells towards a tumor-generating phenotype (cancer). Tumor cells actually work very hard to supply deuterium-depleted nutrients to the organism. In this talk, I will reveal the science behind this fascinating story.

MY INNER CRITIC ADORES ALUMINUM! THE PSYCHOLOGICAL CONSEQUENCES OF ADJUVANTS

PRESENTED BY LOUISA WILLIAMS, MS, DC, ND ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13

Mercury amalgam fillings have been clearly linked with depression, pesticides have been shown to induce anxiety, and pathogenic bacteria have been so conclusively correlated with OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) that it has spawned yet another acronym- PANDAS or PANS. In my clinical experience, the injection of aluminum at birth through the hepatitis B vaccine, or from two months to six years through DPT shots, or later from the Gardasil HPV vaccine, is by far the most injurious assault to our psychological well-being.

 

The mental and emotional disequilibrium initially induced from this neurotoxic aluminum adjuvant readily fuels our inner critic, or “monkey mind.” Over time this self-sabotaging inner voice subtly destroys our peace of mind, resulting in various disorders including intermittent anxiety and depression, chronically disturbing negative thoughts, or simply an ongoing sense of disquiet.  A Wise Traditions diet, constitutional homeopathy, nutritional and herbal supplements, and quality psychological work can reduce the effects of this unsettling and destructive chatter, and help us achieve the inner sense of calm and quietude that characterizes optimal health.
