The seventh annual Natural HealthFest, created and produced by Healthy by Nature, a nationally syndicated radio show hosted by bestselling author and Certified Clinical Nutritionist Martie Whittekin, will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., May 7, at the Richardson Civic Center. This unique wellness event combines the best of nutrition and natural medicine with the best of modern science. Eight renowned experts will teach new ways to optimize health, increase energy, detoxify, boost immunity and improve weight loss and beauty with safe, natural methods. Whittekin will broadcast her radio show live from the event from 8 to 9 a.m.
The educational Natural HealthFest is designed to benefit those from the newly health-conscious to seasoned authorities. More than 50 exhibit booths showcase cutting-edge health equipment and services, dietary supplements, innovations in wellness, free screenings, numerous health modalities, skin care, gourmet natural foods and product samplings. Exhibitors are required to be of high integrity, with fair, consumer-focused and non-discriminatory business practices.
Doug Kaufmann, host of the television show Know the Cause, will be the kickoff speaker. He will share what people need to know about an often overlooked, yet crucial root cause of weight gain. Whittekin says, “As the name of our radio show implies, we are healthy by nature if we follow two simple rules: Give the body sufficient amounts of what it needs for optimum function; and don’t gum up the works with excesses it can’t handle. Natural HealthFest helps us understand how to do a better job following those rules.”
Whittekin says her goal is to continue making Natural HealthFest better and better each year. “It’s really about substance over flash, and quality over size,” she explains. “We understand that people want time to visit the exhibitors, so we have grouped the speakers into panels with ample time for Q&A.”
Her mission is to arm, educate and motivate individuals to take charge and be the best versions of themselves. “At the end of the day, I’ll feel better if I know they’re able to make an informed choice among good options,” she notes. “Whether individuals want to optimize their good health, solve a chronic complaint or even fight a life-threatening illness, Natural HealthFest’s talks and exhibits are a tremendous resource.”
