Annual Health Freedom Expo
for Total Natural Health
By Mara Quigley
By the beginning of the new
millennium, Dr. Wendell Whitman of Warsaw, Indiana had come to an alarming
realization. No one was protecting the public’s right to information about
natural health products and practices that in many cases were more effective, less
invasive, and less costly than standard medical drugs and therapies.
In the interest of protecting
themselves, Big Pharma and the medical/insurance
complex were slowly but surely encroaching on the public’s access to natural
health information, leaving people at the mercy of those entrusted with
protecting their health.
“If a person does not know
about their health choices, then there are no health choices,” Dr. Whitman
often said. Galvanizing colleagues, family and friends, Dr. Whitman created an
affordable, high-impact forum to educate the public about all aspects of
natural health, and in 2005 he founded the first Health Freedom Expo.
Unlike other health expos,
the Health Freedom Expo is not just about selling products. It’s about people
who are passionate about sharing information, how our health freedoms are being
taken away, and how we can actively become involved to protect them.
Since Dr. Whitman’s passing
in 2008, his daughter, Julie Whitman Kline, has continued her father’s mission
to empower the Health Freedom movement, producing two exemplary expos each year
in Chicago, Illinois and Long Beach, California.
The 9th Annual Health Freedom
Expo: Total Natural Health, to be held March 1-3 in Long Beach, California,
will feature world-renowned doctors and experts lecturing on the newest
findings in natural health. Four panel discussions will explore the topics You and Food, You and your Environment, The Politics of
Health, and Longevity: 100 is the new 50. Four award-winning documentary films,

Stem Cells, Cytokines and Telomeres:
How to Make 100 the
The Nobel Prize in Medicine
in 2007 went to researchers in the field of Telomere Biology. With that award,
a little-known, esoteric area of study began to go mainstream.
Media personalities from Oprah to Dr. Oz to Suzanne Somers began to spread the
word about these tiny cellular endcaps, and “telomere”
became a buzzword for early longevity adaptors.
But like resveratrol,
which became a mainstream trend but was certainly no single bullet solution,
there is no one solitary element that can complete the anti-aging picture on
its merits alone. Longevity is a puzzle with interlocking pieces that must all
fit and work together to create an effective strategy to make 100 the New 50.
Increasingly, top researchers
understand the importance of stem cells, cytokine signaling, telomere support
and a few other key factors as parts of a SYSTEM — you might call it the “Silver
System” approach — as opposed to any single bullet solution.
Greta Blackburn, co-author of
The Immortality Edge and a health and fitness pioneer for nearly three decades,
will moderate a panel of leading experts in the field of longevity, including
the world’s most famous gerontologist, Cambridge scholar Aubrey de Grey; David Kekich, the founder of the Maximum Life Foundation; leading
super centenarian researcher Dr. Stephen Coles; “Dr. Telomere” Dr. Bryant Villeponteau; and top cryobiologist
Dr. Greg Fahy.
The Longevity Panel will bring to light the most recent discoveries
in the key fields that impact how we age — and importantly, how we STOP AGING
as we now know it. Meet the Panel Sunday, March 3 from 2-3:45pm at the same expo location.
