Welcome & 2018 Legislative Recap & Citizens Guide To Protecting Health Freedoms

Miste Karlfeldt, Executive Director of Health Freedom Idaho 

Welcome to our valued attendees, speakers and exhibitors. Miste will also discuss 2018 Legislative Session's events and how laws and trends could affect yours and your family's health and freedoms. 

Miste Karlfeldt is an entrepreneur, mother of four and founder of Health Freedom Idaho.  Seeking relief from an autoimmune disease that left her bedridden, Karlfeldt traveled to the Mayo clinic from Idaho, only to be told she would need 3 years of chemotherapy. She sought out a second opinion from a practitioner of naturopathic medicine and then began undergoing the modalities of treatment he recommended. Just as she was experiencing an amazing recovery (without toxic chemotherapy), Idaho lawmakers considered legislation to limit access to natural medicine. Still in pain, she shuffled through the halls of the Idaho Legislature meeting with lawmakers to tell her story. It was then she woke up to her true purpose and passion.  Her calling is to empower the citizens of Idaho by advocating for their health freedoms. She does this work by leading Health Freedom Idaho, a non-profit organization, which educates Idahoans about the laws and factors impacting their right to access the healing health care treatment, information, and services of their choice.

Drugs, Disease and Deception: Silenced No More  

Dr. Judy Mikovits accomplished scientist, researcher and outspoken medical whistle-blower

Judy Mikovits, Ph.D. is a biochemist and molecular biologist with more than 33 years of experience. Internationally known, a veritable “rock star” of the scientific world, she served as the director of the lab of Antiviral Drug Mechanisms at the National Cancer Institute before directing the Cancer Biology program at EpiGenX Pharmaceuticals. She later developed the first neuroimmune institute. Her early work focused on cancer and HIV, her latest on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and autism. She has published more than 50 peer-reviewed articles. In 2011, she made the discovery that destroyed her career. She found that at least 30% of our vaccines are contaminated with gammaretroviruses. Not only is this contamination associated with autism and chronic fatigue syndrome, it is also associated with Parkinson’s, Lou Gehrig’s disease, and Alzheimer’s and a host of other diseases. When she released this shocking information, she was threatened and told to destroy her data; she refused. She was fired, then arrested for supposedly stealing her data from her worksite. She had been facing charges and was bound by a gag order from the court for four years. Recently, charges were dropped and the gag order was lifted. Dr. Mikovits is now free to talk, and boy is she talking.

Dr. Mikovits is clearly taking a stand against vaccination with today’s vaccines and the current vaccine schedule. Due to the contamination of retroviruses and neurotoxins, she doesn’t believe anyone should receive vaccines until vaccines are cleaned up. Retroviruses are not her only concern. She talks about the effects of aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde, and polysorbate 80. She believes these neurotoxins play a definite part, along with retrovirus contamination, in the rise of several diseases in this country. To learn more about Dr. Mikovits’ work and how the government has attempted to silence her, check out her book, " Plague, One Scientist’s Intrepid Search for the Truth about Human Retroviruses and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Autism, and Other Diseases."

Overcoming Stresses from Thoughts, Toxins and Trauma

Dr. Rosie Main DC of Main Health Solutions 

Your spine is the lifeline for all of your body’s functions. The spine is a key element to healing as it protects your central nervous system — the system that connects your entire body, helping it to communicate and react to daily stressors and illnesses. Improper spinal alignment is common and can be caused by both physical and emotional challenges. Spinal misalignment diminishes nerve supply and weakens the body, increasing the risk of pain, illness, and reduced life-longevity. Aligning your spine and correcting abnormalities caused by stress or injury maximizes your nerve supply and clears pathways to enhance healing naturally. By optimizing nerve supply through spinal correction, the body’s systems can naturally interact and integrate without interference. By focusing on the spine, chiropractic care becomes a comprehensive approach to whole-life wellness, unlocking real relief and a robust restoration of the life you were made for.

Dr. Rosie Main is on a mission to transform the health of those who are seeking ways to to live to their God Given Potential. Dr. Main is a Wellness Doctor, Speaker and Radio Host both in English and Spanish and speaks on nutrition, the importance of the nervous system, toxicity, mindset, exercise, healthy recipes, and current health news. She has become the USA Team Doctor for USA Wrestling and traveled with them to the 2012 Olympic Games in London and works with the team to many international events.

Become A Healer In Your Home! 

Lisa Hevern, an Independent DoTerra Wellness Advocate 

After a failed spine surgery at 26, my liver and kidneys were damaged from prescription arthritis medication for managing chronic pain. I was able to stop taking my prescription medications and detox my body with safe, pure, beyond organic essential oils. In this presentation, I'll share the basics of essential oils; where they come from, safety and purity, and the three ways to use them. My intention is to empower each individual to become a holistic healer in their home through the use of natural, plant based medicines.

Lisa has studied Health Sciences and Healthy Aging (Gerontology) at Boise State University.  Through my education and personal experiences, I learned how the cards are stacked against us in modern medicine. My goal is to empower as many people as possible to become knowledgeable, confident, holistic healers in their homes through the use of doTERRA essential oils.
