Takeaways from the Health Freedom Expo

The Health Freedom Expo is more than a place to get a few healthy hints. It is a radical, grassroots, compelling weekend convention of dedicated, educated experts who care about our world and how we might survive in the midst of fluoridated water, ubiquitous GMO food, dangerous oil pipelines precariously scurrying over the Oglala aquifer, and a nation of Walmart-shopping, diet-pop guzzling, and Whopper-scarfing Americans.

The good news is that American awareness of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and the damage they can do to human health has reached a tipping point (our savvy European siblings got wiser a little sooner). We're totally on to Monsanto's slight-of-hand to take over and make a draconian presto-chango to the seed supplies of the world. And at the Health Freedom Expo, speaker after speaker is convinced we're not going to let that happen.

In one place, I was able to listen to actress Daryl Hannah describe the Koch Brothers plan to drag fracked fluids from tar sands from Alberta, Canada to the Gulf of Mexico with no regard for the fate of one of the nation's largest aquifers or the private property of thousands of Americans. If things go well for these conspirators, an area in Canada the size of the state of Florida will be fracked, broken and ruined in the name of sucking the last drop of sticky oil from its sands.

In one place, I was able to get the latest, informed word from Dr. Joseph Mercola, Patch Adams, Non-GMO expert Jeffrey Smith and many others -- dedicated to turning to organic, non-GMO, untainted real food, clean water, supplements and stress-reducing attitudes for health instead of the symptom-masking, pharmacuetical-juggling, and CAT Scan-happy western medicine solutions. For one, it's imperative we remove useless, and harmful, fluoride from our municipal water supplies, which pose a dangerous level of toxicity, especially for babies. Watch the eye-opening, hour-long Fluoridegate movie online for free.

In one place, I was able to get an antioxidant skin reading that had once been featured on the Dr. Oz show, get an analysis by a doctor who recommended a personalized recipe for my own green smoothie with mixture of fresh vegetables, herbs and healthy oils, learn how to analyze health by telltale signs on the tongue, skin and fingernails, and see my husband get tremendous shoulder relief from a five-dollar massage and energy treatment.

Last, but not least, I was able to meet Coast-to-Coast AM's George Noory, who moderated a fabulous panel of six health experts to a standing-room only crowd. See the proof in the photo!
