A Story of Recovery
Colleen brings you on her family’s journey of healing. She will walk you through her emotional story of discovering answers that ultimately led to the healing of her son’s ADHD, auditory processing disorder, sensory processing disorder, dyspraxia, asthma, autoimmune issues and life-threatening food allergies. Colleen explains how eliminating toxins in our food and environment while at the same time addressing the root cause of dysfunction can lead to improved symptoms and healing. Her inspirational story of refusing to accept her son’s diagnosis as lifelong is sure to make you question the current protocol of prescribing medication that offers no hope for a cure.
10:30am-11:30am Sheri Davis
The Feingold and GFCF Diets
Sheri will guide you on a tour of the Feingold Diet, unraveling the mystery surrounding salicylates. What are they and why do some kids react to them? She will also discuss the gluten and dairy free (GFCF) diet. She will explain some of the symptoms and signs that your child might benefit from a GFCF diet. She will reveal the changes one might see when starting a GFCF diet, and she will expound on how one practically implements the Feingold or GFCF diet. Whether you are a seasoned Feingold member, or new to dietary changes, you will walk away with great practical steps and tips for following a special diet.
11:30am-12:15pm Esther Grondahl
The Hidden Dangers of GMO’s and Pesticides
Esther will uncover sources of hidden pesticides in foods while teaching facts about GMO’s and chemical farming in the U.S. Discussing pesticides can be an upsetting topic, but Esther discusses it in a way that eases stress and provides real-life solutions. Esther knows what it’s like to struggle raising a family while providing safe food. She’s added a segment on how to buy organic and non-GMO food without doubling your grocery bill.
12:15pm – 1:15pm Special Guest Speaker, Dr. Bose Ravenel
ADHD – Healing vs Drug Treatment
A practical, evidence-based approach to managing behaviors defining ADD or ADHD is described. Flaws in the pseudoscience underlying the prevailing “neuro-biological” view of this disorder is contrasted with the growing evidence base supporting a novel integrative method of effective treatment without drugs. A confluence of pseudoscience, emphasis upon short-term studies, and limitless pharmaceutical funding are shown to sustain the prevailing pharmaceutical-centered approach to providing drug-dependent temporary relief from behavioral symptoms at the expense of healing. A healing, integrative approach is offered that rests upon four areas of a child’s life that have changed concurrently with the explosion in diagnosis and drug treatment for this condition.

Accessing the Health of the Brain via the Microbiome in our Gut

Learn how Kathleen used the principles of Mother Nature and the application of functional nutrition to reverse twenty-one chronic health conditions in her family, including autism, fibromyalgia, IBS, severe food allergies, chronic pain syndrome, endocrine disorders and more. Kathleen believes that a targeted approach to healing the mucosal lining of the gut, restoring bacterial balance in our inner ecosystem, and honoring our symbiotic relationship with microorganisms is the foundation for our body’s ability to heal. Her personal story, professional experience and insatiable curiosity about the human body will reawaken the health detective in you.
3:15pm -4:15pm Jennifer Guistra Kozek
Nutritional Balancing & Other Natural Remedies for ADHD, ODD, Sleep, and Anxiety
As a mom who fiercely loves her son, psychotherapist Jennifer Kozek walked away from mainstream thinking and explored all available holistic options, eventually finding better solutions than any conventional specialist had ever offered. Jennifer will teach you how to treat ADHD and other perplexing disorders naturally. You will discover some of the mistakes modern medicine makes in its attempt to help. The brain is the greediest of organs, with some very specific dietary requirements. You will learn about vitamins, minerals and amino acids; the role they play in the creation of important “feel good”neurotransmitters like serotonin and melatonin. You will also discover that for every prescription drug there is a natural alternative. Through this in-depth discussion, you will come to realize that the human body has a far greater ability to heal itself than anyone has permitted you to believe. By implementing the many suggestions presented, you will regain hope that recovery is possible without the need for potentially dangerous medication.
