9th Annual Health Freedom Expo

Your Source 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, Genetic Roulette: The Gamble

of our Lives, Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue Our Broken Health Care System, Folks, this Ain’t Normal: The disconnect from Natural Food, and Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes in 30 Days, will be screened throughout the weekend.

Stem Cells, Cytokines and Telomeres:

How to Make 100 the New 50

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.
