Welcome & 2018 Legislative Recap Relating to 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.

The Benefit of Chiropractic with Neurological Conditions 

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.  

How Functional Medicine Conquers Chronic Disease

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.
