    Spring 2012 Take Back Your Health Conference Recap

    On April 14th and 15th the International Health Coach Association LLC  hosted our 2nd Bi-Annual Take Back Your  Health Conference near Washington, D.C.  in Herndon Virginia at the Washington Dulles Hilton. It was a blast!

    There were ten speakers including Joel Salatin (head farmer at the iconic Polyface Farms), Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez (from Suzanne Somers’ book, Knockout), Dr. Norm Shealy (father of medical intuition), Lisa Wilson (founder of the Raw Food Institute), and Daniel Vitalis (re-wilding expert), among others.

    The exhibitor hall was packed with 33 exhibitors featuring products and services such as: reflexology, blue-green algae, organic skin care, superfoods, wheatgrass juice, sprouts and raw buckwheat crackers, blog consulting and web design, essential oils, and much more.

    This was the second production of the conference and the plan is to continue to host them every 6 months. The conference is an event hosted by the International Health Coach Association LLC with the goal of bringing health coaches and health professionals together to learn and network. The event is open to the general public as well, with the hopes that healthy lifestyles will become more available and more widely practiced.

    Here are just a few quotes from some of the attendees:

    Your conference was fabulous! I’m still processing the information and feeling really motivated and inspired to heal my digestive issues. I have to say that winning the iPad was the icing on the cake! -Laura N.

    I just want to thank you for all your hard work in putting together the conference this month.  Steve and I enjoyed it very much.  I was especially excited to meet Ann Marie Michaels. Her lecture was very helpful and gave me information that would help some of my daughters and sons.  We also enjoyed meeting Joel Salatin and hearing his lecture.  It was a very encouraging and invigorating time! -Gayl
