Understanding Gut Health as it relates to and impacts hormones, energy, and brain health

This talk will focus on increasing one's understanding of how to optimize gut health, current trends and challenges, and the importance of gut health and function in optimizing hormones, body composition, energy, and brain health.
Susan Kamil – Licensed Acupuncturist & Clinical Herbalist
Spirit Points: Stress Reduction and Well-being with Acupuncture
There are specific points on the body that help us to transform and change spiritually, some thing that is very much needed in the world right now. For example, on the arm we have two heart points that are called “inner frontier gate” and “outer frontier gate”. One is to help us to connect with others and the other helps us connect with our self. In Chinese medicine, both are considered to be important and the balance of the two is pivotal in our growth.
Dr. Bonnie Juul - Expert in Wellness, Health Restoration, and Healing
Intuition, Faith and Freedom: The only at-home tool you need to avoid medical intervention
Dr. Bonnie is an expert in wellness, health restoration, and healing. She helps busy, strong, professional women who are getting serious about health master natural, healthy living in a way that reflects biblical principles. She will describe Muscle Testing in a very heart centered way, and how it can be used to actively reconnect with one's innate wisdom - that part of us that allows for healing.
Anita Brown – Medical Thermography, Naturopath & Functional Medicine
Healing Anxiety and Depression: Food Really Does Matter
We are experiencing an epidemic of anxiety, depression and other mental health issues today – not only adults but preteens and teens are suffering in record numbers. The conventional view is to look to the brain for the cause, however, functional medicine knows that disease begins in the gut and that there is a direct link between
gut health and mental health. In this talk, we will explore how food directly impacts not only the health of our gut but also our state of mind. We will learn about the types of foods that support and nourish both our bellies and our brains. We will also explore other factors such as stress and toxins that play a role in our health and well-being.

Nia Dance Movement
I am thrilled to share the Joy of Movement and the profound positive impact that movement has on living a full, true to yourself, life. As I've deepened my Nia practice, I've learned to trust my body, to allow her to tell me what's best for me, to let go of others' expectations and be true to myself. I’m passionate about sharing Nia with my students and supporting individuals on their path to becoming the healthiest, strongest, most authentic and alive versions of themselves. I'm grateful and blessed to be sharing Nia and welcome you to join the fun!
