TCM GUEST EDITOR
david wolfe longevity now

Meet one of the most high-energy nutrition experts you'll ever encounter. And enter to win two tickets to his conference that could change your life...

There are health pros, and then there are health pros. Our April Guest Editor, David Wolfe, is the latter. There are wellness aficionados that are way out there ahead of the pack; connecting the dots between mind and body, ancient traditions and wellness, inner culture and outer culture. They’re the leaders who forge paths out beyond what some of us consider normal, but who, in the long term, provide more health-giving solutions than any other wellness leaders we encounter. We wobble between bringing you easy, palatable wellness info and information that is next level and will quite possibly blow your mind. David Wolfe’s message sits firmly in that middle ground and we hope you learn a lot from him this month while we host him as guest!

Later this month, David and over a dozen of our favorite wellness pros are gathering here in L.A. for a conference that will spotlight the latest cutting-edge insights in nutrition, anti-aging, stem cell research, fitness, brain function and tonic herbalism. These leaders, from Bulletproof’s Dave Asprey to brain health innovator, Dr. Amen, will redefine what you know about what true health looks like. 

Join along with us all month as we share David Wolfe’s message of high-level wellness and share wisdom from the Longevity Now conference’s line up of insightful speakers. Meet David Wolfe below and dive in to his positive perspective on our motto of “living well”…

Dear Chalkboard readers,

Have you seen the headlines lately? It always seems like the world is falling apart; however, when I notice things moving towards chaos I instinctively know that somewhere things are also getting disproportionately better. The worse it gets, the better it gets… actually. It depends on where you put your focus. Don’t believe me? Stay tuned for my contributions this month to The Chalkboard Mag. I am excited to be guest editing and sharing some of the latest and greatest in the world of nutrition and well-being.

We look around today and as a culture we have never been more sick, overweight and unhealthy. If that thought makes you feel depressed, you should also know that a growing part of the population has never been healthier. Never before in the history of the world have we had access to healthy choices like we do today – superfoods, superherbs, yoga, fitness strategies and community support. This is an abundant world and all we require is a little re-direction of our awareness to see that it is possible for us to live our full potential and support our amazing bodies with the best nutrition, fitness protocols and community ever.

It’s April and that means springtime! It’s time to get outside and start thinking about what is going to grow in our garden this year. I spend a lot of time in the garden. You may know me as a speaker, as co-developer of the NutriBullet or through my social media posts, but my deepest love is gardening and farming. I relish getting my hands in the earth, planting, nourishing new life, harvesting and sharing the bounty of Mother Nature.

Even if you live in the city, there are ways you can grow your own food and get connected to the magic of growth. It’s easy to grow herbs, sprouts, and vegetables in jars and pots. I‘ve even seen people turn their apartment balconies into full-fledged gardens! When we buy food at grocery or health food stores, those items have likely been picked days or even weeks before, and they have lost an important part of their vitality. There is nothing like growing our own fruits and vegetables and eating them within minutes of harvest. They are at the peak of their enzymatic and nutritional power and, having grown them, they carry our energetic signature as well. To me, these subtle qualities make all the difference in flavor, nutrition and feeling.

I would love more people to experience what quality foods do to their overall well-being. Eating organic, biodynamic, local, wild, and/or homegrown foods are quality life experiences. By connecting to and enhancing the subtle qualities of food, we enhance our overall life wisdom — our soul becomes more alive in our body: We feel a richer joy in living.

I love the idea of repopulating the planet with sustainable perennial food sources and that’s why I started The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation. With FTPF.org we are participating and inspiring a global movement by planting fruit, nut and medicinal trees, particularly in places where entire communities of people can enjoy them for generations – public schools, city parks, low-income neighborhoods, Native American reservations, international hunger relief sites and animal sanctuaries. Just imagine if everyone reading this went out and planted one fruit or nut tree this week. How many people could be fed fresh food for years to come from this simple act?

At any rate, I am really looking forward to the month ahead with TCM and sharing more, as well as enjoying the amazing contributions of three of our key speakers at our upcoming Longevity Now® Conference. This month, you’ll be hearing from Bulletproof bio-hacker Dave Asprey, alternative health guru Dr. Joseph Mercola and holistic physician Dr. Lissa Rankin – all speakers at the upcoming conference. The event, coming up later this month, is unique in the world. It’s a place where over 2,000 health seekers from around the globe will gather and where we will spotlight the latest cutting-edge insights in nutrition, anti-aging, stem cell research, fitness, brain function, tonic herbalism and a lot more. Stay tuned to The Chalkboard for more – like the giveaway below – and maybe we’ll see you in Anaheim!

Yours in health,

David Wolfe

  5. I love the work that David Wolfe is doing and his forward thinking is inspiring and thought provoking. I love reading about who will be present at the Longevity Now Conference and I will be finishing my health coaching license through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition on April 20th! Attending the conference will be a wonderful way to celebrate and receive continuing education all at the same time. I’m so glad to see that he will be the contributing editor this month for The Chalkboard Mag.

  7. You know when you get a feeling that you need to do something and there’s that feeling inside of you that starts to nag you until you do it? This is what happened with this article. For some reason I was drawn to it and after reading his first sentence, I was sucked in. I’ve been feeling like I’m running around in circles with healthy living, being sustainable, and choosing a natural lifestyle. Then I’m seeing all of the horrible things happening to our world in the news and in my daily life and wondering if it’s worth it to keep on trying to make things better when so many people don’t care. It’s like I’m being pulled in every direction and what I really need is guidance. I’m most definitely looking forward to reading more of what David has to say

  11. I was given the death sentence of Celiac disorder last year and have been trying to manage it for the last 9 months. I’m doing so much better but always looking for more information.
    On Valentines Day I fell and hurt my shoulder labrum. Waiting on the MRI to see if it is a labral tear. I’m looking for additional information on stem cell injections to hopefully avoid surgery.
    Basically I’m on a quest to not die young as I have many other medical issues. I feel that going to the conference would give me a boost in that direction based on the available respected speakers.
    Thank you for consideration,
    Denise

  21. just entered to win the tix and keeping my fingers crossesd ! thanks!

  22. My name is Angela and I live in Utah. (not a sister wife ha!). I would love to attend this conference because I just started my health journey and have been trying to read or watch any you tube video I can to learn more. The only thing I know about Dave is from his videos. I would love to see him live with all of the other guest speakers. (plus, I think he’s kind of sexy). I love following chalkboard on Facebook and everything it has to offer from your guest health experts to your recipes. I would drive my scion toaster there in a heart beat. Thanks so much for this great website.

  23. I would really enjoy attending this conference as I have dedicated myself to health for quite sometime, I read one of the speakers mentioned (Dr. Mercola’s Newsletter) everyday and I am a huge advocate for NON-GMO food (I have even went though the training to become a certified NON-GMO speaker by the Institute of Responsible Technology.) It would be a pleasure to continued my education on this topic and share the valuable information with all of the guests at the seminars that I host!

  24. He is a great speaker. I am currently enrolled in the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, and he has, by far, been my favorite speaker we have. I immediately started following him on facebook. I would love to attend one of his events.

  25. My husband tried to kill me in 2002 by poisoning me. My triglycerides went from 57 to 1952 in 14 months. I was a complete athlete until then. I gained 45 lbs, shuffled to walk, slurred my speech and had TIA’s in 2002 – 2004. It took me 3 years to get better. I didn’t die and he began secretly transferring our marital assets..in 2010 he told me he was divorcing me and said, “You’ll be a bag lady on the street.” 20 yrs of marriage and 3 beautiful children. I got an autism program begun at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC (our son) I was asked to speak as the parent who began it all. My ex left our son and I homeless and almost penniless. My prolonged illness and critical condition while my triglycerides ravaged my body brought on Systemic Scleroderma. I always treated my body, and my family, holistically, fresh live food and all my love. Now, I don’t know the extent on internal organ damage because he terminated my health insurance. I am desperately in need of the best nutrition guidance so I can protect our son as long as I’m able, alive. Please consider me as one of your choices, winners of your generous New beginnings

  32. It would be pleasure.

  33. It would be an honour and pleasure to be at this conference to learn from some of the most nutritionally wealthy and diverse people. I have struggled and continue to struggle with gut and digestive imbalances and want to find healing through people who know and understand the intricate nature of our body.

  35. I would absolutely love to go to this event! I currently work at Whole Foods in the Whole Body department where I get to help others heal their bodies with natural medicine. I’m also graduating this may with my bachelor’s in Community Health Education. I’m looking to pursue my masters of science in nutrition at the National College of Natural Medicine! I spend all my free time reading books from many of the speakers at this event. If I’m not reading, I’m listening to podcasts by them. It would be so incredible to have an opportunity to go to this event!
