PROGRAM TALK DESCRIPTIONS
 
 
THE GOOD FOOD INQUISITION
WHAT'S HAPPENING TO OUR FOOD FREEDOM AND HOW CAN WE GET IT BACK?
JOEL SALATIN

Many Americans don't realize that we are in the center of a massive food inquisition, pitting government/industrial orthodoxy against "heritage heretics". Americans all over the country are getting back in touch with the land and their food. Small farmers and urban gardeners are popping up all over, but every time someone asks for government remedies, whether it be food safety, environmentally damaging farms, chemical usage, or genetically modified organisms, the orthodoxy rears its head and creates a strong inquisition. Ultimately about food freedom, this talk wakes you up to the urgent need for action and what you as an individual can do to protect your freedom to purchase and consume food grown and raised in an environmentally friendly, chemical-free environment.


THE TAKE BACK YOUR HEALTH PROTOCOL FOR TEENS AND ADULTS
A HODGE-PODGE OF MYSTERIOUS SYMPTOMS:
WHAT CAN YOU DO WHEN YOUR DOCTOR DOESN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO?
ROBIN SHIRLEY
Everyone has a friend or family member who has been diagnosed with some kind of autoimmune disease, cancer or "system failure". What is happening to us? And why can't our doctors tell us what's wrong and how to fix it? This is the exact question Robin has spent the last 17 years researching. She discovered many contributing factors to disease and used this knowledge to recover from many of the debilitating symptoms of Chronic Lyme disease and Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. Robin outlines the most severe factors leading to disease that you need to be aware of, including environmental toxins, nutrient deficiencies and lifestyle habits. She'll teach you what you can do to make siginificant improvements in your health as well as prevent future, additional disease.

NUTRITION FOR A STRONG AND BALANCED IMMUNE SYSTEM:
FOOD DEMO & TASTING
HOW TO EAT TO REDUCE TISSUE INFLAMMATION AND IRRITATION
ROBIN SHIRLEY
Known for her delicious allergen-free, nutrient-dense and kid-friendly recipes, Robin will teach you how to feed yourself and your family to reduce internal organ and joint inflammation, skin discoloration and rashes, fluid retention and fatigue. Eating this way will create a stronger, more balanced immune system that is better able to keep your body in optimal condition and prevent disease. Demo and Tasting menu is TBA!
 
KNOCKING YOUR 'TOX' OFF!
10 WAYS TO NIX THE TOXINS THAT ARE MAKING US FAT AND SICK
CINDY SANTA ANA
Parabens, phthalates, sulfates and more! What are we putting on our skin? Everyday we are exposed to an onslaught of 39,000 chemicals that are untested and mostly unsafe to consume or slather on our bodies. Cindy will show you where to find them in your skincare, food and homecare products, how to lower your exposure to them, and safer products you can use. This is a very detailed, in-depth workshop, aimed at giving you the knowledge and tools to make amazing strides in your health and clear up irritating symptoms of toxicity.
 
CANCER PREVENTION AND RECOVERY WITH NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE
DR. AUTUMN FRANDSEN

DETOXIFY YOUR BODY WITH THE RAW FOOD INSTITUTE LIFESTYLE
LEARN THE DAILY DETOXIFICATION HABITS THAT ARE TAUGHT AT THE RAW FOOD INSTITUTE TO REVERSE CANCERS AND PREVENT DISEASE
LISA WILSON
Lisa is a walking testimony to the power of a detox lifestyle. She radiates health, energy and beauty. Her knowledge in nutrition and detoxification protocols for halting cancer and preventing disease is extensive. In this presentation she'll teach you how to make significant improvements in your health as you tweak your daily routine to incorporate better nutrition, therapeutic movement and detoxification protocols. She explains how to move the lymph fluid, improve digestion and elimination, increase energy through super nutrition and remove the deadly toxins that have accumulated in your body over a lifetime.

FAQS

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

You don't need to bring too much. We would suggest bringing a notepad and pen to take notes, a yoga mat and workout clothing if you want to participate in the workouts. Bring a change of clothes if you want to freshen up after a workout (see below, What Should I Wear?). 


WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Please bring a warm sweater, as hotel conference rooms tend to be chilly. Please do not wear perfume or cologne - many attendees are very ill and strong fragrances will bring on serious migraines and ruin their day! Thank you for understanding!  We recommend comfortable clothing because you will be doing lots of sitting, standing and hopefully
participating in the workouts! You may want to wear yoga pants or other stretchy, loose clothing.  


WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY?
Conference tickets are refundable up to 75 days before the event date - July 18th, 2015 for the Fall 2015 DC Conference. Conference tickets are 100% non-refundable within 75 days of the event date, but THEY ARE TRANSFERABLE. Transferable means that you may: 1. Transfer your ticket to someone else in the event that you can no longer attend, OR 2. You may transfer your ticket to a future TBYH event.


HOW DO I FIND SOMEONE TO DO A RIDE SHARE OR ROOM SHARE?

If you are looking to share a ride or a hotel room, click here to see the thread on our Facebook event page.


WHAT SHOULD I PACK? WHAT'S THE WEATHER LIKE IN OCTOBER?

It's crisp and gorgeous...it's Virginia in Autumn! Bring a warm sweater, rain jacket and boots. Bring workout clothing and a swimsuit if you plan on participating in the conference workouts or yoga classes, or taking advantage of the hotel fitness center.

CAN I GET THE CONFERENCE RECORDINGS?

You can order the conference audio recordings above, next to the tickets! They will be delivered to you by email up to 2 weeks after the conference.


HOW DO I BOOK MY HOTEL ROOM? IS THERE A DISCOUNT?

Conference attendees receive 15% off the nightly rate when you book through our group.  Mention that you are with the Take Back Your Health Conference to get your discount.   

DO I NEED TO RENT A CAR?

Only if you plan to do sightseeing while you are here. The Renaissance has a complimentary shuttle running every 30 minutes from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport to the hotel front door. You can also use Uber, Lyft or the local taxi service.

CAN I BRING MY KIDS?

Yes! Infants, children and teens age 17 and under are admitted for no charge. However, there will not be any entertainment for young ones this year. If you do bring children, please be respectful to the speakers and other attendees by staying outside the sessions when the kids need to let out extra energy.

If you bring children into the sessions, they must be sitting quietly next to you and not running around or playing in the room. Thank you for cooperating!


CAN I VOLUNTEER?

Yes! We need lots of volunteers! Our dedicated volunteers are what make this event such a pleasant and happy experience for all, and we have a ton of fun while we're at it!

Please email us at support@
takebackyourhealthconference.com
with your name and "Volunteer" in the subject line for more information.

OUR MISSION

True to our name, our speaker lineup and lectures provide information that is life-changing, with the ability to prevent and reverse disease when implemented into our lifestyles with purpose.

Regardless of where you are on your journey to health, Take Back Your Health is an experience that takes you closer to your ultimate health goals — with new information, new friends and new perspectives.

 
Healthy Eating
 

We can all agree on two things: first, what you eat affects your health, and second, what we choose to eat as a population affects environmental health.

At Take Back Your Health, we see it as our responsibility to open the stage to nutrition experts and sustainable farmers who are making significant improvements in people’s health and environmental health.


Nutrition experts, chefs, doctors, and sustainable farmers will take the stage united in one mission: to empower you to make the best food choices for you.  
 
To power you through all of this juicy information, we’ll have a stellar line-up of food choices throughout the weekend: local, sustainable, organic, GMO-free, allergen-free, nutrient-dense, and delicious!

Healthy Living
 
You already know your everyday lifestyle has a critical impact on your long-term health, but now it’s time to align your lifestyle with your health goals!  

Cultivating healthy mindsets, healthy habits, and healthy living spaces are powerful methods of creating long-term health
for you and your family.

From Chinese herbalism, to EMF reduction safe practices, Take Back Your Health will give you the tools to make small tweaks to your home and lifestyle that support big changes to your long-term health.

Healthy Body

Movement helps to heal and tone the body, as well as to clear the mind. During your weekend with Take Back Your Health, you’ll find many opportunities to get moving.  

From morning walks, to afternoon yoga, to evening meditations, all led by some of the world’s leading instructors, you’ll go home feeling great, and maybe even discover a new (and joyful!) form of movement that works for your body.
 
Healthy Planet
 
Without a healthy planet, we cannot thrive. Environmental health, locally and globally, affects our health.  We value that connection and strive to understand it as best we can.

By reducing our waste and water use, supporting organic farming and renewable energy, recycling, composting, and buying local, Take Back Your Health aims to tread lightly, and to pass along knowledge of sustainable practices and techniques to you! 

Together we can discover and implement sustainable ways of living in order to improve our health and the health of our planet.
 
Healthy Business

Your financial health can play a huge role in your overall health and well-being.

We also know that, more than ever before, small business owners and entrepreneurs like you have great power to improve the financial health and happiness of individuals, the nation, and the world.

Take Back Your Health strives to support you in creating financial health by inviting speakers to inspire and teach you how to become financially independent.
