BodyBreak/Truestar Health – Hal Johnson
Heard internationally through her blogs, website and social media, Sylvia has been researching and cooking without the most common food allergens and intolerances (gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, peanuts, nuts, fish, seafood, sesame) and refined sugars for the past 5 years.
For the past 23 years, under the umbrella of Body Break, Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod have been communicating to Canadians the important message that making small lifestyle changes can benefit an individual and their families for a lifetime. They got their start with Participaction and had a relationship with them for 2 years. Hal and Joanne then took their idea and continued with 30, 60 and 90 second TV programs. Hal and Joanne have also developed and produced Body Break — 39 – 30 minute TV episodes, syndicated radio tips and workout videos. They enjoy doing corporate presentations and have launched many Body Break products from memory foam pillows and beds to fitness equipment. Hal and Joanne most recently became Directors of Health and Wellness for Truestar Health. They are proud and excited to represent and support Truestar’s free on-line Healthy Lifestyle Support System along with Truestar’s #1 rated Vitamins and Supplements in North America.
Sylvia began allergy-free cooking when her son was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, a chronic inflammation of the digestive system, at the age of 7. To keep him away from a lifetime of drug dependency and help control his Crohn’s Disease by changing his diet. (Food allergies and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) are two of the fastest growing chronic illnesses in North America.) Cooking for a restricted diet combined with a family and career Sylvia delivers firsthand knowledge and commitment as she shares her story of how she helped her son get his Crohn’s Disease into remission by employing a number of different health approaches including a diet that removed our most familiar foods and staple ingredients. In addition, Sylvia talks about the trial of developing recipes that are not only allergy-free but easy- to-make, delicious and family-friendly.
Centre of Circlewisdom Water: Sacred Essence and Language with Sandra Moon Dancer B.Sc., M.H.Sc.
Hal and Joanne’s mission is to heighten the awareness of the benefits of a healthier, more active lifestyle. They believe that by encouraging and communicating their message in an entertaining, upbeat, and positive way, people will begin to fully realize the implications of their actions and take responsibility for their total well being. In turn, it will benefit us all. Join Hal as he speaks about the Five Key Areas of Health, and an Action Plan to Reach Your Goals.
Water is the essence of us all. Open to this powerful healing element that flows within and throughout Mother Earth. Join us for this shamanic healing and teaching about our relationship with water. Sandra Moon Dancer B.Sc., M.H.Sc. and The Centre of Circlewisdom sing and drum in celebration of Water, the Peterborough Wellness Expo and Gchi-Nbi ~ Sacred Water Gathering 2012.
