2013 Expo Speaking Schedule
SCROLL DOWN FOR DETAILED SCHEDULE
October 18-20, 2013, at the Warner Center Marriott Hotel in Woodland Hills, CA (Los Angeles area)
Come meet icons in the plant-powered lifestyle world T. Colin Campbell, Phd, and Caldwell Esselstyn, MD, in addition to an impressive array of other presenters. Receive unique materials to take home and integrate into your healthy lifestyle. This year we are taking the Expo to a new level and giving away two unique written programs to take with you to benefit your health and the health of your loved ones.
MEALS FOR HEALTH PROGRAM:
Meals For Health is an innovative 30-day community intervention program which has been hugely successful in helping people recover their health. As an Expo attendee you will receive the complete Meals For Health program guide. This guide includes recipes lists, shopping lists, cooking info and special advice that participants receive in the Meals For Health program. Expo attendees can take up a 30 day Meals for Health challenge, beginning the weekend of the conference.
Continuing on-line support will be available for the month following the Expo -- what a great way to kick-start the holiday season! With this material, you will be able to put yourself on the same 30-day program that was recently used in a church community in Berkeley, California.
In the Berkeley church, about 50 participant families suffering from a variety of chronic diseases got off 80% of their medications within 30 days, lost dozens of pounds, normalized biomarkers and transformed their health.
The Meals For Health program produces results that are nothing short of miraculous. During the Expo, Don Forrester MD, the medical director of Meals For Health, will discuss how the program works and why anyone at any age, condition or income level can get the same results.
You will also have an opportunity to meet some of the participants from Meals For Health Berkeley, and hear what has happened in their health and with their family, as a result of going 100% plant-based with Meals For Health.
CALDWELL ESSELSTYN MD's FULL PERSONAL PROGRAM
Dr. Esselstyn runs the most successful heart disease reversal program in history. He is author of the bestseller Prevent & Reverse Heart Disease. This book has helped over a million readers, including celebrities like Bill Clinton, who credits Dr. Esselstyn for reversing his heart disease and saving his life.
During the Expo weekend, you will hear a series of talks which constitute the FULL program that Dr. Esselstyn and his wife, Ann, teach at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Center.
Normally you would have to travel to Cleveland to get this full program. Expo weekend you'll get it all here in California!
THE WHOLE IS GREATER THAN THE PARTS
T. Colin Campbell PhD is a legendary figure in the plant-based world. Back in 2005 when his landmark work, The China Study, came out, we were among the first to help promote it. The book is responsible for a big shift and can be directly credited for many achievements and the overall evolution of plant-based health information.
Whole Foods Market CEO John Mackey has said reading this book opened his eyes, and that meeting with Dr. Campbell sparked his decision to start immersions and offer Whole Foods employees the chance to learn how to use food to reverse and prevent diseases.
Films like Forks Over Knives arose directly from Dr. Campbell and Dr. Esselstyn's work, and now Dr. Campbell has a new message. At the Expo Dr. Campbell will be talking about where his 30-year exploration has led, and what are the most important considerations are for all of us to protect and insure our health.
As the title of his new book, Whole, suggests, the big picture is far more important than individual foods or nutrients.
In fact, Dr. Campbell is going to show you how the healthiest diet is easier than you think.
Health-promoting MD Michael Klaper will provide common-sense analysis and detailed advice on a number of frequently misunderstood topics, such as gallbladder flushes, colonic irrigation, probiotics, olive oil, chocolate, sugar, vitamins, coffee, low-carb diets and much more.
EMOTIONAL FIRST AID?
Although we have bandages for cuts, vegetable soup for colds, and ice packs for bruises, most of us have no idea how to treat day-to-day emotional injuries such as failure, rejection, guilt and loss.
But these kinds of emotional injuries often get worse when left untreated and can significantly impact our quality of life and cause damage to our emotional well being. They can even seriously compromise your health.
What to do?
The answer is to join us at the Healthy Lifestyle Expo in October, where you will meet and hear from psychologist and bestselling author Guy Winch, PhD.
Dr. Winch will be giving a talk called "Emotional First Aid." He will tell you how to prevent common psychological "injuries" such as rejection, brooding or loneliness, from impacting your health.
A former stand-up comedian, Dr. Winch will keep you very amused as he offers concrete, easy-to-use treatments, all of which are backed up by hard cutting-edge science that we can administer to aid in our recovery.
A columnist for Psychology Today, Dr. Winch has been working with individuals, couples and families in his private practice in Manhattan, since 1992. He is a member of the American Psychological Association -- and you will hear from him at the Expo!
