Do you suffer from allergies, back pain, asthma, diabetes, fibromyalgia, headaches, heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, osteoporosis, hypoglycemia or thyroid conditions?  True health means having each and every one of your bodies trillions of cells functioning and healing at their full potential.  Dr. Campbell will present the five core essentials to living a long healthy and fulfilled life.

10:30 – 11:30 Brain Foods – Betsy Hicks

Brain fog begins in our gut and is triggered by foods that suppress the connectivity of neurotransmitters. There are many clues from our mood or our child’s behavior that indicate a need for a special diet, and not everyone has the same biomedical blueprint. Learn about the foods that heal and hinder our focus ability.  Explore the benefits of a gluten-free/casein-free diet as well as food intolerances, digestion, absorption, yeast and bacterial balance, and ways to assist the body in optimal health. A healthy diet can have more powerful effects than any other intervention and is the foundation of all other biomedical therapies.

11:45 – 12:45  Supplements & How They Work – Dr. John Hicks

The human body is a magnificent system that brilliantly modulates, protects and replenishes to function efficiently with ease. Environmental toxins powerfully interfere with this inspired process. We may wonder how does the body handle toxins and poor food choices that weaken immunity and hinder digestion? Although nutrition remains the root and foundation of long-term health, we can further support the body to allow healing, with precise tools to balance the gut, increase detoxification, support immunity, and regulate hormones. Join pediatrician, Dr. John Hicks, to learn what types of choices and supplements support you towards optimal health.
