Foster City, CA (PRWEB) May 16, 2014
Cardiothoracic surgeon and Emmy Award Winner Dr. Mehmet Oz will headline the third annual symposium on health and wellness, “Create Your Future Health Summit,” sponsored by the Peninsula Special Interest Lions Club (PSILC) on June 13 and 14, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, 5001 Great America Parkway in Santa Clara. Dr. Oz will be joined by other health, wellness, and nutrition experts like Martha Stewart, Oncologist Dr. Monique Semien, Food Revolution Network’s Ocean Robbins, Writer/Director Dana Nachman of The Human Experiment, Health 2.0’s Indu Subaiya and Matthew Holt, and Integrative Medicine’s Dr. Paul Lynn.
“Our focus is to prevent people on our planet from suffering, to give them the information and the tools necessary to achieve a better, happier and healthier life,” says Eleanor Britter, who, along with husband Bill Britter, founded the PSILC and initiated the yearly health symposiums. “We have more children today born with Type 1 Diabetes. High levels of chemicals in our food and water are impacting women’s reproductive processes. A trip to the grocery store presents a confusing array of choices: do I buy wild, farm-raised or frozen fish? Is all organic produce created equal? This year’s summit will address questions like these and introduce new technologies and methods for self-detection of disease.”
A prime motivator for fellow Lions Dr. Oz and Britter is the potential of children to learn better at school when they eat cleaner and more consciously. Britter says, “We need our young people to innovate and create better futures for all of us. By teaching parents how to take better care of their families, and how the body, mind and spirit are related, we ensure a positive future for our planet.” Attendees who fill out an event survey will receive a free app “to help busy mothers and fathers learn more effective ways to stay current on health issues and ask the right questions of their doctors.”
Emmy Award winning journalist Dana Nachman, director of The Human Experiment and a featured speaker at this year’s Summit, says the shocking reality is that thousands of untested chemicals are in our everyday products, our homes, and inside of us. The documentary, narrated by Sean Penn—who also serves as the documentary’s Executive Producer—tells the personal stories of people who believe their lives have been affected by chemicals and takes viewers to the front lines as activists challenge the powerful and well-funded chemical industry.
Other Create Your Future Health Summit panelists and speakers will focus on Integrative Medicine, the practice of treating the whole person and not just the disease. Subaiya and Holt, co-founders of Health 2.0, encourage patients and doctors to address financial, relationship, caregiving, job, and social stressors that effect health. Dr. Paul Lynn offers proactive ways to reduce heart attacks and prostate cancer and maintain longevity through diet and other natural remedies. Ocean Robbins suggests links between the quality of food we eat and the quality of our lives and recommends strategies for healing.
