The Real Truth About Health Conference
A historic healthcare event, hosted by some of the world’s top health and nutrition experts, will be held January 10 to 12, 2014, in New York City, at the Hudson Theatre, in the Millennium Hotel. When bestselling author and health and wellness adviser Brian Clement, Ph.D., was asked to explain the impetus for the seminar, his response was simple: “On the West Coast, people are often given opportunities to attend spectacular educational conferences, but no one does it on the East Coast. So, this will be the first.” The two-day conference will also be live streamed.
Clement, a naturopathic medical doctor who spearheads the international progressive health movement, notes that Steven Shore, founder of The Real Truth About Health, helped hand-pick a panel of speakers known as ethical, moral and open truth-tellers.
When the people, companies, organizations and institutions that we and our parents before us have trusted our whole lives are not always looking out for us, we need to take back our power. For too many such entities, meeting their own personal or organizational financial goals may be more important than their clients’ health. How do we take back that power? Knowledge.
In addition to Clement — who has directed the renowned Hippocrates Health Institute for more than three decades — speakers include Jeffrey Smith; Dr. Richard Oppenlander; Dr. Michael Greger; Devra Davis, Ph.D.; Cherie Soria and Dan Ladermann; Dr. Hans Diehl; Steve “Sproutman” Meyerowitz; Joseph Keon; Elizabeth Grossman; and Anna Maria Clement, Ph.D.
Topics include the raw food diet, GMO (genetically modified) food labeling, detoxification, and myriad harmful environmental and lifestyle impacts related to the immune system, contributing to diabetes, cancer, rheumatologic and gastrointestinal diseases.
The initiation of a healthy lifestyle is often met with firm opposition from mainstream America, Clement explains. There is a belief that when one begins to live a healthy lifestyle, it is an “extreme” or “unnatural” approach to living. Clement quotes internationally renowned cardiovascular surgeon Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr.: “The culture of society has convinced us that it is extreme to live in a healthy way.” Reactions to healthy initiatives often prompt excuses such as “It’s a genetic predisposition for me to be obese or have heart disease.”
Clement’s response to this excuse and others is emphatic: “For 62 years at Hippocrates, we have worked at changing the course of disease. We can’t change genes; we aren’t God. What we change is lifestyle, and when we do, we are successful.”
According to Clement, “Every major disease will be addressed at the seminar, and you will be introduced to solutions. The curriculum for this event will be useful throughout one’s lifetime.”
