Day 1 :
Technical Director of Naturepedic, USA
Time : 09:30-10:30
Barry A Cik is the founder and Technical Director of Naturepedic, a manufacturer of award-winning certified organic mattresses. He has had a lifelong interest in advancing a healthier lifestyle and the elimination of toxic and questionable chemicals in consumer products. A board-certified environmental engineer, Barry is an advocate for legislative reform regarding chemical usage and was invited to testify in Washington, DC for a congressional subcommittee exploring chemical reform. He is also a frequent speaker and thought leader, speaking before scientific, consumer, political and business audiences on the benefits of healthier product design without toxic or questionable chemicals.
Our ancestors used materials found in nature to build whatever they needed. With the advent of science, technology, and industrialization, materials became synthetically produced. Many of these modern materials are toxic. Some of the most toxic are chemical flame retardants (FR). FRs are used extensively in consumer products. The current state of flame retardant (FR) chemical exposures in the home have reached a saturation point. Even though FR chemicals are toxic, it is almost impossible to find a consumer product in a typical home that does not have an FR chemical as part of its make-up. FR chemicals migrate into the environment and living things. FR chemicals can be found in the blood and urine of animals and human beings. Current studies have pointed to links between FR chemical exposures and diseases such as cancer, asthma, dermatitis, organ damage, teratogenic damage, autism, neurological impairment, and more. There are options which can reduce or eliminate toxic chemical exposures. This presentation will discuss a naturopathic approach to mitigating health risks via pre-emption of chemical exposures in the home by design.

Keynote: Light: The medicine of the future
Sunita Hiranandaney, DHMS, NMD. Graduated in 1978, from, Nehru Homeopathic Medical College, New Delhi, India. Has been practicing Homeopathy for 40yrs. Migrated to the USA in 1988. Has been researching Alternative & Complementary fields of Medicine in Germany, Austria, Russia & USA (like Live blood analysis, ayurvedic detox, orthomolecular medicine, oxidative medicine, etc). She believes that real Health is Happiness and a true balance in body, mind & spirit.
Dr. Sunita Hiranandaney, in her forty years of experience in the treatment of patients with autoimmune disease, has found the laser & bio-photon therapy as one of the very important tools in healing. We all know that man essentially is a being of light. Prof. Fritz Albert Popp and the modern science of photobiology is presently proving this. In terms of healing, the implications are immense. We know now that quanta of light can initiate or arrest cascade-like reactions in the cells and that the genetic cellular damage can be virtually repaired within hours, by fair beams of light. We are still on the threshold of fully understanding the complete relationship between light and life, but we can now say emphatically, that the function of our entire metabolism is dependent on the light. (Dr. Fritz Albert Popp). The laser and bio-photon therapy, in other words, energy medicine, has been used in healing for a long time now. The bio-photons are the smallest particles of light. These with no mass transmit information within and between cells. Also, many fields on biological medicine and medical techniques underwent a fundamental change with the new inventions. It has been discovered that all the cells emanate a weak wave of bio-photon which helps to initiates cell communication. The energy of healing laser activates the power station in the cells (mitochondria) and thus contributes to the release of further energy. As we know that energy is the prerequisite of all life, of the individual cells as well as of the complete organism. Many years ago, when an electric current was discovered it was thought that one was on the trail of the special invention. Very soon it was found that nature since its very existence has made use of electric current. The same applies to the laser. The discovery of ultraviolet radiations of all living cells of our body put us on the trail of nature’s another secret. The properties of radiation or rather the energy in our cells are identical to laser radiation. With the correct dosage, it can maintain one’s health. With over fifteen years of research, a biological laser technique has produced a new laser and biophoton therapy methods with greatly improved properties and effects on our health.
