Sue Hitzmann is creator of The MELT Method, founder of the Fascia Research Society and author of The MELT Method.
Sue’s interest in neuromuscular and manual therapies began when she was in her twenties with her quest to find a resolution to her own debilitating pain. Even top doctors and physical therapists couldn’t explain what was going on in her body. In hands-on bodywork, she found solutions she was desperately seeking. Determined to share this, she changed her focus from fitness to manual therapy and became known in New York City as the person who solved seemingly impossible pain issues.
In 2001, Sue was inspired to create “homework” for her clients, which led to the development of the MELT Method – the first-ever form of Hands-off Bodywork®.

With a 750-year history in cultured beneficial bacteria, Natasha Trenev’s family produced legendary yogurt prized by the royal family of Yugoslavia. Her family arrived in the United States in the 1950s, when her father founded Continental Culture Specialists. Following graduation from UCLA in 1970, a decade of research led to Natasha’s development of the first revolutionary method of producing an effective and scientifically validated single strain probiotic bacteria product. Her efforts led to the establishment of the entire probiotics category in North America, Australia, England, Holland and Belgium.
As a developmental scientist, Natasha has spent years studying the effects of beneficial bacteria and has written several books on the subject. Today, Natasha’s reference library is the world’s largest private repository on probiotics, referenced and recommended by prominent research scientists and medical schools.
Natasha is an expert on probiotics and has shared her knowledge with many through books, journal articles and articles in major scientific, peer-reviewed publications. She is currently working on additional books in the series of Probiotic Health Guides to continue her quest to educate the public. She is also working on her most scholarly yet easy-to-read book, which she hopes will become the global “probiotics bible.”

Chris Dancy is touted as “the Most Connected Man on Earth,” and the world is watching those connections carefully. For 25 years, Dancy has served in leadership within the technology and healthcare industries, specializing in the intersection of the two.
Chris entered the public dialog concerning digital health as the media started to focus on wearable technology. He earned his moniker by utilizing up to 700 sensors, devices, applications, and services to track, analyze, and optimize his life--from his calorie intake to his spiritual well-being. This quantification enables him to see the connections of otherwise invisible data, resulting in dramatic upgrades to his health, productivity, and quality of life.
A noted keynote speaker and executive workshop retreat facilitator, Chris guides organizations and audiences on a journey--a disruptive, breathtaking journey--into the future of computing, when behavior becomes the ultimate interface.

It’s an amazing time to be alive because we are in a breakthrough period in self-healthcare. Humans have been investigating cell-based longevity technologies for at least 15 years, but there have only been major improvements in the last 5 years. Using an individual's own bone marrow seems to be the way forward since many of us didn’t save our own umbilical cords. The success of such technologies is dependent on using your own stem cells and not synthetic or animal based stem cells. Balancing our hormones and increasing our nutrition levels are vital for elongating our lives and increasing our health spans.

Could it be we’ve been taking our temperatures wrong all this time? Jason’s guest Dr. Wade Webster says while traditional mercury based thermometers are capable of reading our bodies correct core temperature, we would need to keep the thermometer continually inserted for ten minutes or more. His company Prima-Temp is creating options for capsulized internal thermometers which one day may be fueled by the human body itself. A notifier would be sent to a mobile device so the user will know exactly what their core temperature is. The benefits behind knowing our core temperatures are driving additional research, but today we know the brain synchronizes the cells in the body based on the temperature of our surroundings. Our exposure to light (heat) also benefits us by assisting us in fighting infections, dealing with infertility issues and helping us take medications at optimum times.

Since the 1970’s Americans have been experimenting with the next big diet craze. The allure of taking a pill to achieve better health is an idea that catapulted the supplement industry to a multi-billion dollar status.

Deciphering the human genome has made a huge impact to increasing our health and lifespans. Beginning in the 1950’s longevity has entered the engineering phase which brings us closer to regenerative medicine, growing organs and tissue in labs and even spray on skin. With new technologies evolving more rapidly now than in any time in the past we may soon see ourselves extending our current lifespan by 5 or even 10 years. Some say it may strain the earth’s natural resources but others contend longer, healthier lives may boost innovation and with it the economy.

So many factors come into play when discussing the issue of eliminating aging and prolonging life.

Insurance coverage is changing and it may no longer be the health vehicle it was originally designed to be. Taking your health into your own hands and determining the core underlying issues causing your health problems will be your first step to finding your cure.

If marketers had their way we would all be sitting in front of a screen with a cold can of beer in our hands. This lifestyle most of us accept as the norm can be devastating to our health. The blue light emitted from computer screens and cell phones interrupt our natural sleep patterns. Proper sleep is one of the big three imperatives for better health. Consuming alcohol causes depression, dehydration and reduces our motor functions. So why do we continue to abuse our bodies?
Our guest, James Swanwick, challenges us to consider how our lives can be better without alcohol and shows us how to get better sleep with his blue light reducing, Swannies. He practices what he preaches. He created the video based, 30-Day No Alcohol Challenge to help people reduce the amount of alcohol they consume by keeping them accountable through an online support network. He is also the creator of Swannies, the stylish glasses which if worn 90-min before sleeping, support your natural sleep patterns.

Most of us don’t view aging as a disease, which is why many possible treatments and methods go underfunded and never make it past the theory stage. If Laura Deming has her way all of this will change in the near future. She has been obsessed with finding a cure for aging since she was a teenager. She became a venture capitalist after leaving MIT because she was frustrated with the current system in which academia chases funding. She says even if you don’t have money to invest you can still help the cause by disseminating the information within your social and familial networks.

Add to that cooking techniques, beauty products and hybridized foods and our systems get out of whack. Dr. T educates us about the risk of skin cancer due to lack of sun exposure, how a $200 test can save us from colon cancer 30 years early and on why we should blend our nutrition shakes instead of juicing them.

Mobility or lack of it can make or break your positive outlook and disrupt your daily routine. Old fitness terms such as no pain, no gain are outdated and can confuse us when understanding what constitutes progress and what exercises are hurting us. Even modified yoga poses can cause stress on parts of the body which may not be flexible enough due to an injury or chronic pain. Our guest Debbie Siebers, tells us the key is consistent movement and proper breathing. She talks us through some stretching techniques and offers us advice on mediation methods.
