Kresser contends that we’re in the midst of an epidemic of chronic disease unlike anything human beings have ever experienced. It's destroying our quality of life, undermining the health of future generations and threatening to bankrupt governments. Unfortunately, our current model of “disease management" has not only failed to address the problem, it has contributed to it. In this presentation, Kresser will outline a new paradigm of healthcare — and health — with the potential to reverse chronic disease and restore the natural health and vitality that is our birthright.
