CLOSING CEREMONY

PRESENTED BY DEL BIGTREE ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15

GUT & PSYCHOLOGY SYNDROME

PRESENTED BY NATASHA CAMPBELL-MCBRIDE, MD, PHD ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13

(Presenting by teleconference.) 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.

VEGETARIANISM EXPLAINED

PRESENTED BY NATASHA CAMPBELL-MCBRIDE, MD, PHD ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 15

Vegetarianism and veganism are becoming more popular and people believe that plant-based life style can make one healthy, young and even enlightened. Changing your diet is a very serious decision and it will have a profound effect on your health. Before making such a decision it is essential to be informed about how food works in your body and what may be the consequences of this change. Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride will be talking about plant-based diets and their effect on human health.

HOMESTEADING AFTER CANCER

PRESENTED BY JASON & LORRAINE CONTRERAS ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15

After undergoing six rounds of chemotherapy for his cancer, Jason and Lorraine’s life changed and so did their priorities, outlook on life and dreams. It led them to leave their careers and move from city life in southern California to homestead in the mountains of North Carolina. See how this journey through sickness brought them to a new adventure of wellness and abundance through homesteading.

BROTHS AND STOCKS

PRESENTED BY MONICA CORRADO, MA, CNC ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13

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.

AUTOPSY OF THE GERM THEORY

PRESENTED BY THOMAS COWAN, MD ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14

The theory that bacteria and viruses cause disease and can be transferred from one person to another through droplets in the air or on surfaces has dominated medicine since the days of Louis Pasteur--leading to antibiotics, quarantines, face masks and vaccinations.

 

This talk will address the true causes of disease--poisons (including EMF poisons) and nutritional deficiencies (including deficiencies of oxygen in our drinking water). The germ theory of medicine does not fit with the scientific facts and needs a rapid burial. 

ASK THE PRACTITIONER PANEL

PRESENTED BY THOMAS COWAN, MDSALLY FALLON MORELL, AND OTHERS ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13

We are excited to offer a panel of highly qualified practitioners and our moderator, Sally Fallon Morell. The panel includes Tom Cowan, MD 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.

COSMIC ETHER AND COSMIC LIFE LIFE-ENERGY

PRESENTED BY JAMES DEMEO ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15

Since the early 1900s, multiple experiments detected the cosmic ether in space, most notably the systematic interferometer work of Dayton Miller. His findings were subsequently erased from the history of science for political and emotional reasons, with the rise of concepts of "empty space" and a dead universe, as expressed in the Big Bang theory and Einstein's theory of relativity. An experimentally proven cosmic ether crashes down nearly all of conventional astrophysical theory, even while empirical astronomy and space science remain unchallenged. In the mid-1900s, discoveries were made by Wilhelm Reich of cosmic life energy in living creatures, atmosphere, water and soils. His name and work were also erased from the history of science for similar political and emotional reasons, challenging premises such as dead water and atmosphere, and mechanistic biochemistry. Experimental/empirical findings on cosmic ether and cosmic life energy are today rigidly censored by a severely biased academic and medical world, which ignores the major breakthroughs they carry. These new findings and the technology they offer, crash down nearly all of conventional theory in multiple disciplines, even while the empirical foundations of each remain intact.

SAFE DENTAL AMALGAM FILLING REMOVAL PROTOCOL

PRESENTED BY MARC DINOLA, DDS ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14

DiNola’s talk will describe the protocols necessary for the proper removal of amalgam fillings. His talk will incorporate the start to finish rationale that has been inspired, created or developed in response to new and old information gathered over the years. Each step incorporates clinical research into the ultimate strategy, where all potential exposures from mercury are mitigated (vapor and particulate). He will also answer questions about biological dentistry in general, as well as specific ones about the SMART protocols he will present. 

NOURISHING TRADITIONAL DIETS

PRESENTED BY SALLY FALLON MORELL ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14

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. 

HOW TO MEET INDIVIDUALIZED NUTRIENT NEEDS WITH ORGAN MEATS

PRESENTED BY JANINE FARZIN ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13

Learn more about how incorporating organ meats into your own diet can help you thrive.  By recognizing that vitamin and mineral status depend on unique environmental and genetic factors, we consider bio individuality in choosing which organs to add to our diet.  We review common excess and deficiency symptoms of select vitamins and minerals and match needs with the most accessible organs. Additionally, we provide tips for cleaning and trimming these organs along with practical recipes.

CHEESE

PRESENTED BY BABS HOGAN ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15

Is cheese a health food?  If so, why?  Today’s societies rely on ruminant animal agriculture and yet we continue to debate the value of real cheese. Since cheese is one of our first foods and has endured the test of time (centuries), why do so many people continue avoid it?  Dr. Peter Ballerstedt says that “Modern human beings exist because of ruminants.” This points to the critical need to avoid fake, processed, industrialized food.  The science of cheese is very complex, considering the various factors involved, such as: microbes, raw vs. pasteurized, quality of food consumed by animals, health of animals, climate, geography, and safety measures in production and delivery, etc.  In this presentation, Babs shares recent research findings about the potential health benefits of cheese in topics such as:  microbes; vitamins; minerals; fats; raw vs. pasteurized; lactose intolerance; nutritional differences in goat, cow, and sheep cheese; Vitamin K2; and cheese allergies.  In an interview with world-famous cheesemaker, Mateo Kehler, of Jasper Hill Farm in Vermont, his first words were “Cheese is alive.”  After listening to this presentation, you’ll know why.

BUILDING BIOLOGY

PRESENTED BY DIANA JABOUR ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15

Building biology is the science of healthy buildings. Building biologists study your space, (home, school and office) and how it affects your health.

Become educated and empowered as you learn tips and tricks to lessen your chemical body burden through enhanced air, water and lighting quality. You will also learn about the four different types of EMFs in your space: magnetic fields, electric fields, dirty electricity and wireless radiation RF, and how you can lower your exposures today!​

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

WESTERNIZED DISEASES?

PRESENTED BY CHRIS KNOBBE, MD ON FRIDAY, 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.

CHRONIC ILLNESS, YOUR TREATMENT PLAN

PRESENTED BY BRANDON LAGRECA ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15

Are you struggling to find a successful treatment after being diagnosed with cancer, an autoimmune disease, a gastrointestinal disorder or another chronic condition? Has conventional medical testing failed to reveal the underlying cause of your symptoms?

 

Discover the hidden pieces of the chronic disease puzzle and create a personalized healing plan with step-by-step instruction from clinician, author and cancer survivor Brandon LaGreca. See things from the viewpoint of an integrative medical practitioner to understand how the approach to diagnosis differs from that of conventional medicine.

VACCINE FRAUD

PRESENTED BY KENDALL NELSON ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13

Kendall Nelson, director/producer of The Greater Good, a documentary about the vaccine controversy, speaks about her commitment to protect the basic human right to informed consent. Nelson explains how and why public health officials, politicians and pharmaceutical companies continue to push an ever-increasing, un-scientific vaccine agenda despite scientific evidence of harm. She takes a journalistic approach to reveal unpleasant truths about vaccine myths and conflicts of interest, while calling for an end to censorship, corruption and mandated vaccination. Nelson provides updates on vaccine legislation, especially in light of the recent coronavirus, and impending adult vaccine mandates. Nelson concludes with tips on how to talk with others about vaccines and gives practical advice on how you can help end the outdated, dangerous vaccine paradigm. Ultimately, as our civil liberties become ever more at risk, Nelson sends out a battle call. For the sake of our children and future generations, it is time to take action.

DEVIL IN THE GARLIC

PRESENTED BY GREG NIGH ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15

Sulfur is essential for health. Unfortunately, there are many aspects of life in the modern world that impair our ability to adequately process and repackage dietary sulfur into the many crucial sulfur-based compounds our cells need. As this impairment progresses, it can manifest in a wide range of symptoms and diseases, all of which are attributed to other causes. Dr. Nigh will review basic sulfur metabolism before explaining the ways it can become impaired, how the body attempts to correct this impairment, and the symptoms that can result from it. The talk will conclude with Maria Palmer, NTP, reviewing the low-sulfur dietary protocol she developed and that Dr. Nigh has prescribed for hundreds of patients, often with dramatically beneficial results.

STUDIES ON KAMUT

PRESENTED BY BOB QUINN, PhD ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14

During the past twelve years, Kamut International has granted nearly two million dollars to three independent laboratories in the University of Bologna and University of Florence Research Hospital in Italy to study the differences between ancient and modern wheat on the health of the human body. The results of these research studies have been published in thirty-three peer reviewed articles in highly regarded scientific journals. Most of these studies involved clinical trials of volunteers with chronic disease such as heart disease, diabetes, IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and fibromyalgia. These volunteers were fed diets of either modern or ancient wheat and then results of blood analysis were compared. The results surprised the researchers and could lead to the better understanding of why so many people have trouble eating modern wheat as well as the promise of high neutrons and improved health promised by ancient wheat.

THE FINANCIAL VIABILITY OF ORGANICS

PRESENTED BY BOB QUINN, PhD ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15

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

(Presenting by teleconference.) 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.

LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE

PRESENTED BY LAURA VILLANTI ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14

The world of food and nutrition is complex. As is the world of chronic health issues. The ability to find where these two merge is the epicenter for where the body can begin its most efficient and easiest path to healing. Through many years of clinical experience with nutritional therapy including supporting the rebalance of the microbiome of clients and through the advanced assessment of the autonomic nervous system, Laura will detail how to let food be thy medicine for how to support the body when dealing with today’s most prevalent clinical deficiencies, toxins, imbalances and co-infections.

HEALING THROUGH THE POWER OF NATURE

PRESENTED BY TIMOTHY WEEKS, DC ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13

Part 1 - Earth, Air: The human body is much like an idling engine. Just like an engine it needs fuel, oxygen and a spark to function. All health problems are accompanied by a decrease of nutrition (EARTH) and oxygen (AIR) at the cells/organs of dysfunction. As this happens the body goes into fight/flight and eventually fatigue. Dr. Weeks will go over simple tests to know when your body is stressed and that your nutrition and oxygen are falling, along with strategies to reset and reprogram the body back to homeostasis.

Part 2 - Water, Fire: As the body goes deeper into stress the electrical energy and nervous system of the body (FIRE) goes down. As this occurs, the body becomes compressed and twisted through the fascia while the nervous system shorts circuits. The final stage of stress is toxemia where the lymph (WATER) and intracellular water diminishes and the fluids of the body quit moving. In this second part Weeks will explain this process of stress, how it happens and show powerful strategies to build back up the elements of the body so it can heal quickly and without drugs.

Dr. Timothy Weeks will present strategies to test and reset your health using a functional medicine approach

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.

HOMEOPATHY FOR CHILDREN

PRESENTED BY ANKE ZIMMERMANN, ND ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13

Talk #1: Homeopathy for the Family

Homeopathy has an incredibly wide range of applications for families. From assistance with pregnancy and childbirth to treating babies and children for common acute and chronic ailments; from assistance with emotional stress and even addiction concerns in adults to a little help for the family pet and garden. Homeopathy has something to offer for everyone. Expect an informative and entertaining tour through the fascinating world of homeopathy. 

 

Talk #2 Homeopathy for Developmental Disorders

As many as 18% of American children are diagnosed with a developmental disorder, including 2.5% with autism. These conditions are placing enormous strains on families, the education system and society at large. Homeopathy has the potential to both identify and address the many contributing factors to these conditions, from inherited tendencies to environmental stressors, including exposure to prenatal ultrasounds, birth interventions, vaccines, medications and environmental toxins. This presentation will be illustrated with many inspiring case examples from the presenter's practice.
