Natural Awakenings Naples and Fort Myers

Changes to Health Freedom Summit Activities

Several changes have been made to the lineup and content of presentations at the second annual Food & Thought Health Freedom Summit, from April 1 to 3, in Naples.

Marty Mesh, executive director of the Florida Organic Growers Association, along with filmmaker Shelley Rogers, will be on hand for a screening of the 60-minute documentary, What’s ‘Organic’ About Organic?, at 8:15 p.m., April 1. The film delves into what happens when a grassroots agricultural movement evolves into a booming international market, revealing the hidden costs of conventional agriculture. Mesh will share personal recollections of Frank Oakes’ contributions to the association and what made him a dynamic and persuasive advocate. Both of these events follow the scheduled presentation on Global Agriculture and Your Brain, by Dr. David Perlmutter, New York Times bestselling author of Grain Brain and frequent guest on the Dr. Oz show, at 6:30 p.m.

Doctor of Oriental Medicine Alfred Cormier will discuss how stem cell therapy can help to avoid surgery and drugs, along with acclaimed author and natural health practitioner Vaishãli’s views, natural health tips and practices at 10 a.m., April 2. In addition, Janet Weisberg, a Project NatureConnect practitioner, facilitator and guide, certified traumatologist and licensed massage therapist, will deliver the summit’s closing presentation, instead of Vaishãli, at 6:30 p.m., April 3.
