Giveaway extended to Friday August 26, 2011 at midnight EST
I was recently contacted by the organizers of the Take Back Your Health Conference, which will be held in the Washington, DC area on October 23 and 23 2011 and will host several well-known health and wellness experts, including Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Victoria Moran and Andrea Beaman. I was really excited when I read the roster of speakers and topics, as it provides several differing perspectives on how to attain good health. I do not agree with all of them, but I do think one important element of good health is informing yourself and knowing why you make certain decisions. To me that is part of empowering yourself to take care of your health.
I am lucky to be able to attend this conference free of charge, and even luckier to be able to offer one City|Life|Eats reader a chance to attend this conference for free as well. Details below, but first I wanted to note that as someone who has an abnormal reaction to consuming gluten and has therefore benefited significantly from a gluten-free diet, I am particularly interested in how the topic of gluten-free diets relates to chronic pain, auto immune health issues, and good health in general, especially as there are so many different opinions on this topic. The majority of the speakers will be speaking about overall health generally rather than specific conditions, but one of the speakers, Andrea Bearman, will speak on thyroid health and the importance of gluten-free grains, and all the cooking demos will be gluten-free. So if your interest in taking back your health includes an interest in the gluten-free diet and its impact on health, this will be addressed in some parts of the conference. Many of the speakers support a plant-based approach to good health, though other viewpoints will be represented as well.
