Featured Sessions:

SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW: REVERSING TYPE 2 DIABETES WITH REAL FOOD & REMOTE CONTINUOUS CARE

Type 2 diabetes has until very recently, been thought to be a chronic, progressive, and incurable disease. Combining the wisdom of medical practice prior to the advent of pharmaceuticals, the front line medication effects of real food, and today’s technological capacity to monitor and provide real time personalized health care, Dr. Phinney will discuss Virta Health’s delivery of the first clinically-proven treatment to safely and sustainably reverse type 2 diabetes without medications or surgery.

CONNECTING SOME DOTS: HIGHLY PROCESSED FOOD, INFLAMMATION, AND CHRONIC DISEASE

A famous quote from Hippocrates is "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food". Dr. Phinney will present on the latest scientifically-validated tools showing that chronic disease can be prevented and reversed using locally-sourced real food rather than drugs.
