11:30 am: “Live Comfortably and Efficiently”

Heather Lawrence and David Lawson of Dr. Energy Saver
Learn how to save energy, your money and the planet’s resources.

1:00 pm: Keynote Speaker - Dr. Nancy Gahles, DC, CCH

“Navigating Health Care Reform through the Power of Self Care”

Integrative Healthcare Policy Consortium (IHPC) www.ihpc.org
IHPC Federal Policy Committee, Co-Chair
IHPC Non-Discrimination Committee
President Emeritus, National Center for Homeopathy
CEO, Health and Harmony Wellness Education and TeleHealth & Harmony

Dr. Gahles will discuss several issues regarding integrative health and the attendee’s opportunity to become an effective agent of change for their own health. Her focus will be on two key issues. First, she will discuss how current health care reform affects the integrative health care community. Part of the Affordable Care Act states that insurance companies “shall not discriminate” against any state-licensed health provider, and Dr. Gahles will discuss what that means for long established disciplines, like acupuncture, Chinese medicine, naturopathic medicine, chiropractic, and midwifery.

Secondly, Dr. Gahles will educate the audience about their ability to be in charge of their own healthcare by understanding the link between what makes us tick and what makes us sick. She will explain how the power of self-care can enable each person to create their own wellness portfolio. The investments made into one’s healthcare can be effective and long lasting, if they empower each patient to take charge of their own health needs and if they are able to address the underlying causes of dis-ease.

3:00 pm: “Fight Cancer with Your Fork”

Dr. Susan Silberstein, Ph.D.
President/Founder: Center for Advancement in Cancer Education, BeatCancer.org

Ashtanga is a method of yoga that synchronizes the breath with a progressive series of postures. This process produces an internal heat and purifying sweat, creating a deep detoxification of the muscles and organs. Improvement of circulation, a light and strong body, and a clean mind are just some of the benefits that are gained from a continuous commitment to Ashtanga yoga. The key to developing strength and flexibility through Ashtanga yoga is PRACTICE!
