With today's epidemic of chronic disease, many are exploring how proper nutrition and alternative medicine can be used to achieve optimal health. Curious health seekers will have a chance to learn more about nutrition and holistic wellness at the Wise Traditions conference. The conference attracts health-conscious consumers as well as health professionals, farmers, chefs and journalists.
Attendees will have a chance to attend lectures and cooking demonstrations and visit exhibits showcasing local foods, interesting products and services and local practitioners. Topics of talks include "Myths and Truths about Vegetarian Diets," "The Vital Fat-Soluble Vitamins" and "Having a Healthy Pregnancy." For those who want an in-depth look at the nutrition research of Dr. Weston A. Price, the weekend kicks off with a morning presentation by the foundation's president, Sally Fallon Morell, titled "Nourishing Traditional Diets: The Key to Vibrant Health."
The rest of the weekend is packed with presentations led by fascinating speakers including Dr. Dawn Ewing, a Houston naturopathic practitioner and author of Let the Tooth Be Known, which examines the links between oral and systemic health; Kaayla Daniel, who is also known as the "The Naughty Nutritionist" because of her ability to outrageously and humorously debunk nutritional myths; and Chris Masterjohn, the creator of Cholesterol-and-Health.com, who demonstrates that cholesterol is not harmful but rather critical to cognitive learning and memory.
