The most critical element for achieving good health lies in your understanding of which fats preserve and protect good health and which fats drive disease. We have been fed a lump of lies in regards to fats, but the Wise Traditions Conference will set you straight!
The 16th annual Wise Traditions nutrition conference, hosted by the Weston A. Price Foundation, is coming to Anaheim, California, November 13-16. Mark Bittman, of the New York Times, proclaimed that “Butter is Back.” Conference participants will learn why butter is a health food, and why animal fats and coconut oil should be a part of everyone’s diet.
The conference will be held at the Anaheim Marriott, 770 West Convention Way, in Anaheim, California. The International conference is open to the public and offers CEU credits to some health professionals. Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation says,
If you are aiming to improve your diet and your health, the most important step you can take is to understand which fats are healthy and how you can incorporate them into your diet. This conference will highlight the science that supports the need for traditional fats in the diet, for everything from hormone production to weight loss to protection against cancer and heart disease.
Featured speakers include:
• Allan Savory, founder of Africa Center for Holistic Management and the Savory Institute, which is teaching the world how holistic management practices restore desert regions to fertile pastures.

She is the first author of several recently published papers on theories proposing that a low-micronutrient, high-carbohydrate diet contributes to the metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s.
And so many more incredible speakers! While I LOVE the speakers, I also LOVE the vendor hall. It is not your typical nutrition conference vendor hall. In other nutrition conferences I have attended, the vendor hall is full of supplement companies. Each selling vitamin, mineral or herbal supplements.
Get Your Fill of Real Food!
At the Wise Traditions Conference, the huge vendor hall is full of vendors selling food! That’s right, food! When I saw that at my first conference back in 2006, I knew that I had come home. My gut told me it felt right, it was a good fit. Not just the food part and the incredible meals. The whole design of the conference — the expectation to teach — the people there willing to radically change their lifestyles.
The conference highlights the critical purpose to change the way we think about diet and food.
Wise Traditions attracts health-conscious families, farmers, chefs, journalists and health professionals from around the world. This year’s theme is “Focus on Fats.” Attendees are able to participate in thought-provoking seminars, cooking demonstrations and exhibits showcasing local and traditional foods.
The highly anticipated event will culminate in the Raw Milk Symposium on November 16. Industry insiders like Mark McAfee, the largest raw milk producer in the United States, will give dynamic lectures focusing on raw milk benefits and safety practices. The Raw Milk Symposium will be available on livestream. For a complete schedule of events and registration information, please visit: wisetraditions.org.

Each person has their own experience of a conference like this. For some it is a game changer. It could be for you. If I had to choose between a Carribean vacation and the Wise Traditions Conference I would choose the conference. Take a look at the schedule of events and tell me you wouldn’t too.
If you attend please find me and say hello! I’d love to meet you!
