Spring Cleanse Health Summit Featured Guests

 

MONDAY

Rachel Buchanan, AP

Rachel is a trained acupuncturist who specialized in women’s health before transitioning into her current role as an educator and activist with Beautycounter. After treating patients in her practice on a daily basis with allergies, infertility and cancer a turning point came when she had two patients come into her practice in the same month with breast cancer who were younger than she was and did not carry the genetic gene that is often linked to cancer. It was at that specific time in her life when she learned 80-90% of ingredients currently used in the personal care product industry have never been tested for human safety, so she decided to shift her focus to partner with a company who is not only educating consumers about this important public health safety issue, offering a solution to the problem via their non-toxic high performing products, but actually lobbying in Washington DC to fix the root of the problem which is the lack of regulation in the industry itself. Now, she works with a group of women across the United States and Canada to create a movement to lead the change to safer beauty. Beautycounter believes that no one should have to sacrifice their health for beauty and is working hard to make their voices heard. In her spare time, the Jacksonville, FL native can be found hiking with her two girls, Caelan & Ellie, collecting pinecones and catching sunsets on various cityscapes across America while traveling full time with her family looking for their next place to call home.

Topic:  Your Skin is Your Largest Organ – What You Need to Know

The facts about the beauty industry, what you need to do know and tools you can use to make informed decisions about the products you bring into your home. As the old adage says: whatever you do early in life will reflect itself in your health and wellbeing later in life. This is certainly true when it comes to what you put on your skin. No matter how old you are, how long you have been using certain products, it is never too late to make a positive shift that will enhance your health for the years to come. Resources and guides will be provided.

WEDNESDAY

Dr. Mihaela A. Telecan

Author, Low Carb/Keto Coach

Founder of Healing With Foods

 

Mihaela Telecan, DVM, MS, RD, known as the LowCarbRD and Mindset Coach is on a mission to help one million women achieve unsurpassed health and bring happiness back into their lives.

 

She is the author of MAKE PEACE WITH FAT and the founder of Healing With Foods, a wellness coaching practice focused on helping women reverse metabolic disorders (diabetes, PCOS, obesity), reduce inflammation and pain, heal leaky gut and autoimmunity, and most of all, gain their energy and happy life back.

Combining her professional training with her unique upbringing in Romania and her own healing journey, Mihaela helps her clients gain incredible health and performance, all by using an ancestral whole foods approach, along with important mindset and lifestyle strategies.

Mihaela was featured on local television stations BUZZ TV and Jax Channel 4 River City Live, as well as, published articles in Huffington Post, Elephant Journal, 904 Fitness and Proactive Health Magazine. She was also quoted in Life Extension Magazine and interviewed on numerous podcasts.

Dr. Telecan will cover a very controversial topic: “Fats and their role in health, weight loss, and physical performance”. Is it really possible to eat fat and lose body fat, to free yourself from uncontrolled hunger and food cravings, or to increase your energy, mental and physical performance? Are all fats created equal, or there are fats we should not eat if we intend to heal and live a long happy active life? If fats are good for us, and they can become the primary fuel for our body, how can we make the transition from “fat phobia” to “fat loving”? Is there a secret to eating fat and burning fat?

 FRIDAY

Carolyn Messere, MD

When I started out in medicine, I thought the only way I could make a difference for people was to get an MD, train in something practical, and set up a practice. So that’s what I did. I became a colon and rectal surgeon, because it felt like the best way for me to help people.

It didn’t take long, though, for me to discover that I was very limited in my ability to actually make a difference for people. For people who just needed surgery – remove the problem and move on – it was great.

 

But so many people came to me who had ongoing, annoying problems that threatened their every day enjoyment of life. Constipation, irritable bowel, pelvic pain, bloating, low energy, food intolerances.

I did my best, but I was so limited in what I could do for them, because I was a specialist. And I was a surgeon, so it was expected that I would spend my day either scheduling people for surgery or performing surgery.

After almost 10 years of doing that, I knew I wanted to make a change. I wanted to escape the “fix your symptoms, not your real problem” way of practicing medicine.

I studied functional medicine. And I embraced a holistic approach to health – getting down to the root cause of issues like irritable bowel syndrome, hormonal imbalances, low energy, and irritability. Now I can really help those people who came to me with those chronic problems get back to having a great life, without taking a lot of medication or having to have surgery.
