The 8th Annual Health Freedom Expo Returns to the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel and Convention Center
Chicago (2012) The time to make positive, concrete decisions about your health is now. And we're here to help by creating three days of dynamic speaking programs with world renown doctors, practitioners and health experts; a buzzing, active Expo hall with over 200 booths filled with cutting edge products, information and services; dynamic hot topic panel discussions and award winning documentary films endorsed by critics, celebrities and natural health practitioners. It's all here, under one roof, at one time.
The Health Freedom Expo is different from all other natural health events because through its parent company, the HealthKeepers Alliance, they work to defeat restricting legislation that limits positive health freedom choices and awareness. They do this at both the state and national levels of government. No other health event in the country supports legislative initiatives and educates the public about the outcomes to this degree.
"There's no other natural health expo like it," noted consumer activist and author Kevin Trudeau states. "What sets the Health Freedom Expo apart from other health expos is (that) the information presented is not just to sell product to consumers, it's about people who are passionate about sharing information. It's about how our health freedoms are being taken away and it’s about exposing the truth. Other shows are designed to sell product, here that is available, but that is not the emphasis. The Health Freedom Expo is about educating and being empowered, and that is what makes it different."
About The Health Freedom Expo: The Health Freedom Expo is a 501c(3) non-profit organization sponsored by The Health Keepers Alliance, a lobbying organization. Year round, the Health Keepers Alliance works to defeat restricting legislation that limits positive health freedom choices and awareness. Their primary intention is to protect consumers' rights, defend practitioners who use natural and nutritional cures and to create full awareness of what health and wellness choices are available to the public.
The Mission of the Health Freedom Expo is to bring the finest natural health information, products and services to the public. The smart health care consumer knows that getting and staying well is only part of a healthy lifestyle. People want answers about affordable health care; to understand health care reform; how to use food as medicine; how to prevent ill health rather than create it; how to deal with illnesses that affect the whole family; and most of all, how to thrive in this climate of change.

Lunch Hour – This film examines America’s national school lunch program, which exposes children to unhealthy, but culturally acceptable foods at a young age. Premier showing in Chicago.
Cut Burn Poison - This documentary is professionally done and sends a powerful message about the FDA abuse of power and the horrors of radiation and chemotherapy. It does it in a journalistic way without hype, just relying on the facts.
Eating – America’s principal health problem is the eating habits of its people. Our eating is killing us. In fact the film cites a US Surgeon General’s assertion that every year “eating kills 2 of 3 Americans.” Why? Because Americans (and those of other wealthy Western societies) are stuffing themselves with animal protein and cholesterol, instead of eating properly: a plant-based diet devoid of any animal products.
Forks Over Knives – This film examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.
Bruzynski The Movie – Cancer Is Serious Business - The story of a medical doctor, PhD and biochemist that won the largest legal battle against the FDA in American history.
