Look Back, Take Charge, Move Forward:

Live Disease-Free & Full of Energy by Applying Ancient Wisdom in a Modern World

Organized by Dr. Sina McCullough and Joel Salatin, Farmer

June 18-19, 2021


The natural state of the body is regeneration and healing.  However, our modern diets, lifestyle, and limiting beliefs prevent us from creating a disease-free life filled with abundant energy, peace and joy.


We have gathered visionaries in nutrition, health and agriculture that will enlighten, empower and encourage you as they integrate ancient wisdom with cutting-edge research to provide a blueprint for complete healing and longevity:


  • From stem cells to biofields, discover how the body regenerates itself.  Learn how to unlock that healing potential inside your own body to reverse any chronic or autoimmune disease, as well as food allergies and sensitive.
  • Learn how to turn off inflammatory genes by consuming naturally-occurring microRNAs in specific foods.
  • Discover how to slow down the aging process by harvesting energy from the sun within your own cells.
  • Learn how to build a robust microbiome using food, emotions, breathing techniques, and positive social interactions.
  • Harness your ability to create abundant energy by learning how to release “emotional tigers” from your past.
  • Discover why structured water is called the “fundamental determinant of health” and learn how to create coherent water in your body.
  • Discover how centralized policies inhibit your ability to procure “intelligent” foods that know how to heal the body.  Learn how to overcome this limitation so you can achieve complete healing and optimal wellness.
  • Bonus Topic: Learn how to save time and money in the kitchen with easy, practical tips and tricks.
