    My Longevity Now Conference 2015 highlights

    My Longevity Now Conference 2015 highlights

    They call it the ‘Super Bowl of Health’.

    And although I have never been to an American Football League championship game or even been to the US at the same time that it was airing on TV, my new friends at the Longevity Now Conference assured me that everything which is wild, exciting, jaw-dropping and hair-raising about the Super Bowl is experienced right where we were, at the health event of the year.

    I was not disappointed.

    It’s the one event that I’ve been dreaming about for too long already and this year was the year to make it happen. I first spent some time in Santa Monica, CA to check out the raw food scene there (blog post coming next) and then headed to Anaheim, CA for this 3 day intensive. I slept on grounding pillows, ate medicinal mushroom ice-creams, had a thermal imaging face scan, got tested for mercury vapour, high-fived the world’s top doctors, nutritionists and health leaders and soaked up some of the most ground-breaking information available on the planet today.

    Here are just some of my highlights, as seen on @betterraw Instagram page…

    JUST LOVE THIS MAN FOR HIS EXISTENCE AND WHAT COMES OUT OF HIS MOUTH. SO MANY EPIC QUOTES FROM @DAVIDAVOCADOWOLFE AT @LONGEVITYNOW CONFERENCE, BUT HERE’S A CERTAIN AFFIRMATION THAT STOOD OUT TO ME WHEN ON THE TOPIC OF HOW ‘ATTITUDE DETERMINES APTITUDE’: I AM SMART ENOUGH. I DO KNOW WHAT TO DO. I AM CAPABLE. I’LL WORK AT IT TILL I UNDERSTAND. #LNC2015 #LONGEVITYNOW
    LOOKS LIKE A NORMAL HOTEL CONFERENCE ROOM? LOOK AGAIN… 2,000 OF US ARE FULLY GROUNDED WITH GROUNDING MATS THAT SUPPORT YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM, CALM LEFT BRAIN DOWN AND ENERGISE LIKE NOTHING ELSE.
    “80% OF WORLD’S ANTIBIOTICS ARE USED ON ANIMALS, SO THEY DON’T GET SICK, BUT THE SUPERBUGS ARE NOW IN OUR FOOD AND WATER” – VANI HARI, @THEFOODBABE

    AS AN ARTIST (THOUGH AREN’T WE ALL, TILL WE ARE TOLD OTHERWISE), I WAS ALWAYS INTERESTED IN THE COLOUR CODE. WHEN I GOT INTO NUTRITION, PHRASES LIKE ‘EAT THE RAINBOW’ OR ‘GOD’S COLOUR PHARMACY’ MADE SENSE TO ME AND I’VE ALWAYS ASSOCIATED CERTAIN FOODS WITH WHAT WE GET OUT OF IT (RED TOMATO FOR HEART HEALTH, YELLOW FOR HAPPINESS, PURPLE FOR ANTIOXIDANTS, ETC ETC). TODAY I’VE EXPANDED MY KNOWLEDGE BANK TO ANOTHER LEVEL AND LEARNT NOW IMPORTANT BLACK IS!!! YES BLACK! BLACK IS REALLY ALL THE COLOURS PUT TOGETHER AND IS REALLY THE JING! WHAT’S BLACK? BLACK BEANS, BLACK RICE, BLACK SESAME SEEDS, CHAGA MUSHROOM, OLIVES, BLACKBERRY AND CHOCOLATE. AWESOME HAH? @LONGEVITYNOW @DAVIDAVOCADOWOLFE
    “WHEN YOU THINK YOU’RE DONE AND CAN’T GO ANY FURTHER, YOU’VE ONLY ACCOMPLISHED 40% OF WHAT YOU’RE TRULY CAPABLE OF” . YOU CAN’T REALLY SEE THE MAN IN THIS PHOTO, LET ALONE TELL HOW INSANELY AWESOME HE IS, BUT THIS IS THE MOMENT @RICHROLL WAS TELLING US ABOUT HOW MUCH WE ARE REALLY CAPABLE OF. RICH COMPLETED THE #EPIC5, WHICH IS 5 IRON MANS IN 5 DAYS!!!!!!!! OFFICIALLY THE MOST INSPIRATIONAL AND CRAZY STORY EVER! . #LNC2015 #LONGEVITYNOW #RICHROLL

    WOW DO I HAVE A LOT TO PROCESS AFTER RON TEEGUARDEN’S TALK TONIGHT. RON IS A MASTER HERBALIST AND THEE MAN BEHIND @DRAGONHERBS. GOT AN EVENING PLANNED FOR READING MY NOTES AND ALL THESE INFO BOOKLETS, BUT THOUGHT YOU’D LIKE TO KNOW ASAP THAT SOME OF THE MOST POWERFUL HERBS ARE AVAILABLE TO YOU RIGHT IN YOUR OWN SUPERMARKET! THERE’S SOMETHING SO POTENT, HEALING, ANTIOXIDANT RICH, BEST ANTI INFLAMMATORY AND IS ALSO THE REASON WHY INDIA HAS THE LOWEST RATE OF ALZHEIMER’S. ANY GUESSES WHAT IT IS? TURMERIC!
    SO AWESOME TO GET TO KNOW THE WOMAN BEHIND #GLO – A DELICIOUS (AND THE ONLY) RAW RESTAURANT IN ICELAND, WHICH I VISITED 3 YEARS AGO. SHE NOW HAS 5! @RAWSOLLA DEMONSTRATED A SALAD RECIPE WHICH SHE MADE OUT OF EVERYTHING PURPLE SHE COULD FIND AT @WHOLEFOODS. WHY PURPLE? IT’S THE COLOUR PIGMENT THAT IS A CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM PROTECTOR, GUT NERVOUS SYSTEM PROTECTOR, BRAIN AND EYE NOURISHING! WHAT’S PURPLE? PURPLE KALE, PURPLE CARROT, PURPLE ASPARAGUS, CAULIFLOWER, CABBAGE, BRUSSELS SPROUTS, ONION, BEETROOT, GRAPES, BLUEBERRY, BLACKBERRY AND EDIBLE FLOWERS.
    LOVED HEARING NADINE ARTEMIS OF LIVING LIBATIONS SPEAK ON NATURAL DENTAL CARE. I USED TO HAVE TEETH THAT WERE FALLING APART WITH CAVITY AFTER CAVITY, BUT SINCE CHANGING MY DIET, THE CAVITIES DIDN’T ONLY STOP, THEY STARTED HEALING. I ONLY UNDERSTOOD THE REASON TODAY!! 1. CAVITIES HAPPEN FROM THE INSIDE. 2. WE HAVE A DENTINAL LYMPH SYSTEM. 3. OUR TEETH ARE FED FROM THE ROOTS. 4. WHEN THIS SYSTEM IS FUNCTIONAL, IT ACTS LIKE AN INVISIBLE TOOTHBRUSH. AMAZING RIGHT?

    “THE LONGEST JOURNEY YOU’LL EVER MAKE IS THE JOURNEY FROM THE HEAD TO THE HEART” – @LISSARANKIN . I’VE BEEN WANTING TO HEAR DR LISSA RANKIN SPEAK SINCE SEEING ALL THE AMAZING I CAN DO IT ANNOUNCEMENTS FROM MY PUBLISHER @HAYHOUSEINC. TODAY I SAW HER AT @LONGEVITYNOW. SHE WAS SPECTACULAR! . LISSA TALKED US THROUGH THE #FEARCURE AND HOW PEOPLE GROW THROUGH EITHER INSPIRATION OR DESPERATION. SHE EXPLAINED THAT FEAR IS NOT SOMETHING WE WANT TO GET RID OF, BECAUSE IT’S OUR BIOLOGICAL RESPONSE TO PROTECT THE PHYSICAL BODY. IT’S ABOUT DISCOVERING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRUE AND FALSE FEAR. AND A FALSE FEAR IS AN IMAGINARY FEAR OF SOMETHING GOING WRONG IN THE FUTURE.

    THIS MAN TOTALLY DESERVES 2 POSTS, SO THIS IS 1 OF 2! DR JOHN WARNER IS A GREEN CHEMIST, WHO JUST TOLD US SOMETHING PRETTY SHOCKING… EVERY YEAR USA ALONE GRADUATES 15,000 UNDERGRADUATES, 3,000 MASTERS AND 3,000 PHD STUDENTS IN CHEMISTRY, BUT NOT ONE UNIVERSITY REQUIRES ANY DEMONSTRATION OF KNOWLEDGE REGARDING TOXICITY OF CHEMISTRY. INSANE! HE ALSO SUGGESTED THAT THE ONLY WAY A CURRICULUM CAN CHANGE IS IF WE START RINGING UP UNIVERSITIES “AS POTENTIAL STUDENTS” AND PUTTING IN A REQUEST THAT IF YOU WERE TO DO THEIR COURSE, YOU’D WANT LECTURES ON TOXICITY OF CHEMISTRY. HOW ABOUT THAT?

    GOT GREY HAIR AND/OR DO YOU COLOUR YOURS? YOU’LL WANT TO HEAR THIS… . THE HAIR DYE INDUSTRY IS BIGGER THAN THE DIET INDUSTRY! IT’S HIGHLY TOXIC, IS A LISTED CARCINOGEN AND IT’S THE BIGGEST ISSUE OF THE WORLD TODAY. HAIR DYE GOES INTO ALL WATER AND IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO GET OUT OF DRINKING WATER, UNLESS YOU OXYGENATE OR OZONATE IT. . DR JOHN WARNER’S WORK TOTALLY DESERVES 2 POSTS AND THIS IS 2 OF 2. HE IS A GREEN CHEMIST AND THE INVENTOR OF THE MOST INCREDIBLE PRODUCT CALLED HAIRPRINT. IT’S CURRENTLY ONLY SPECIFIC FOR HAIR THAT’S GREY, IS MADE FROM ALL EDIBLE INGREDIENTS, BUT WORKS BETTER THAN HAIRDYE- IT DOESN’T ‘PAINT’ OVER HAIR OR ‘COLOUR A LAYER’, BUT WHAT IT DOES DO IS RETURN IT TO ITS ORIGINAL PIGMENT. THE BEST PART IS BECAUSE IT RETURNS HAIR TO YOUR ORIGINAL COLOUR, THERE’S NO FADING AND HAIR SHADES LOOK SO NATURAL WITHOUT THAT BLOCK-BROWN-WIG-LIKE COLOUR RIGHT AFTER YOU DYE IT.
    THIS IS #DAVEASPREY FROM @BULLETPROOFCOFFEE WHO TAUGHT US THAT ANTIOXIDANTS IN COFFEE STICK TO THE CASEINS IN MILK AND CREAM, MAKING THEM LESS BIO-AVAILABLE. ALSO PUTTING RAW HONEY INTO HOT WATER DOESN’T MAKE IT RAW ANYMORE.

    DR DANIEL AMEN TOLD US INSANE STORIES INVOLVING THE BRAIN AND STRATEGIES ON HOW TO TAKE CARE OF THE ONLY BRAIN YOU ARE STUCK WITH: 1. FEED YOUR BRAIN (IT’S 80% WATER, DRINK MORE, HEALTHY FATS, SMART CALORIES). 2. TRAIN YOUR BRAIN (LISTEN TO #MOZART). 3. PHYSICAL EXERCISE (WALK, WEIGHTS, CO-ORDINATION). 4. SLEEP (PURPOSE OF SLEEP IS TO WASH AND CLEAN YOUR BRAIN). 5. MANAGE STRESS (MEDITATION, HYPNOSIS). 6. BOOST BLOOD FLOW (GINKGO). 7. DECREASE INFLAMMATION (GREEN TEA, TURMERIC). 8. OPTIMISE PARAMETERS (VITAMIN D, THYROID, TESTOSTERONE).
    “IT’S THE WORST OF TIMES, BUT IT’S ALSO THE BEST OF TIMES” – #DAVIDWOLFE @DAVIDAVOCADOWOLFE FOCUSED HIS PRESENTATION AROUND THE COLOUR CODE AND HOW VITAL IT IS TO #EATTHERAINBOW. JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THIS SLIDE.
