Shawn Talbott is passionate about exercise science and nutrition. With a fascination of the links between diet, biochemistry and psychology, Doc Talbott believes in the idea that what we eat changes the biochemisty of our bodies which influences how we think, feel and behave. He refers to the gut-brain axis as “the missing piece of the puzzle” for optimizing mood, energy, focus and overall wellbeing. He believes that understanding the connection between the microbiome and the brain is fundamental to changing how we think about human performance. Shawn is a veteran Iron Man Triathlete, author of hundreds of articles and more than a dozen books, and was part of Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign to fight childhood obesity. He considers himself a pizza connoisseur, and says a slice of pizza will nearly always improve his mood.

Finding the Real You (even though you didn’t know you were missing)
Cathy Agasar is a Renaissance woman constantly seeking to find her authentic self. Although she believes in her wellness journey, she admits she did not understand what that meant until purchasing a holistic wellness day spa, which she knew nothing about. Everything she has learned she has applied to her own life, sharing with clients to make a positive difference every day. The real impact came when she began exploring the mind/body/spirit connection for herself. Through hard work and a desire to truly discover who she was and wanted to be, Cathy came through tragedy to triumph and is now living her best life ever. Cathy and her husband, Jerry, now practice side by side. She is grateful every day, and extremely honored to share her journey with all who will listen.

A typical American growing up in the New Jersey/New York area, Brian likes to joke that he was a pioneer in the field of obesity—he was fat even before many Americans were fat! Raised in an Irish household on the standard American diet of meat, processed foods and sugary sodas, he was unfit and gasping for air every few steps. When he was 20 years old, he was dating a girl whose best friend’s boyfriend was 30—and a vegetarian. Despite the fact he had been more or less educated by his family that the body would die without animal-based foods, the lure of an influential peer inspired him to give up meat in one fell swoop. For the first year and a half, he kept his vegetarian diet a secret from his family. Yet after losing 120 pounds and experiencing the difference in his health, he came out of the proverbial closet (much to his family’s dismay!) and became a complete vegan three years later. A natural performer, Brian had worked his way through college as a musician. Many friends, including one who shared his interest in nutrition after healing herself from cancer through diet, offered feedback that he was born to teach. With his degree in biochemistry in hand and his interest in nutrition sealed, Brian began doing just that. It was during this time he was living in Southern Oregon where temperatures are hot, dry and sunny from May through September. His body naturally gravitated towards raw foods and, after a few months, he remembered the book “Be Your Own Doctor” by Ann Wigmore. He dug it out, read it again, and realized he had essentially become a raw vegan by default. With the intention of returning to Oregon to open a health institute, Brian moved to Maine for a final taste of the East Coast. While there, he decided to go down to Boston to visit Ann Wigmore at the Hippocrates Health Institute. As his friend had years prior, Ann saw Brian’s natural talent to communicate this lifestyle to people in a relatable way, and she convinced him to move to Boston and work with her. On behalf of Hippocrates, Brian soon went to Europe and spent three years re-educating Europeans about the raw food movement that had begun on their continent. In 1978, he spent a year in Denmark as Director of the Humlegaarden Institute that had been founded by the famous Danish raw-food pioneer Dr. Kristine Nolfi in the 1940s. Upon his return to the U.S. in 1980, Brian assumed the title of Director of Hippocrates Health Institute and, in 1987, he moved the Institute to Florida. Since that time, he has directed the Institute’s growth and development, as well as facilitated the implementation of progressive natural health treatments and programs. Brian’s progressive ideas on natural health, coupled with his vast theoretical and practical science experience, have provided him with the opportunity to conduct countless seminars, lectures and educational programs. He has traveled to more than 25 countries motivating the public to take action to improve their lives. Most recently, he was commissioned by government-supported organizations to establish, organize and direct health programs in Denmark, Switzerland, Greece and India. Brian has also written numerous books in which he explores the various aspects of health, spirituality and natural healing. His best-selling book, “Living Foods for Optimum Health,” has been acclaimed by Marilyn Diamond, co-author of the book “Fit for Life,” as “an important and eminently readable book for the new era of self-care,” and by Coretta Scott King as a “landmark guide to the essentials of healthy living.”

Tracy came to know and love CHT through personal health trials of her own. CHT was the primary thing that assisted her in the long journey toward health and wellness. Through much trial and tribulation she regained health and was able to actively assist those who were and are being persecuted by the Government Agency’s in Washington. Government Agency law is a passion of Tracy’s because it is so easy for the Gov’t to over reach and deny a citizen their day in Court and strip us of our Constitutional, God given, rights. Her sincere hope in this time she has to speak is that she can educate you about your rights and give you the information you need to make wise and discerning decisions should your regulating body in your State ever come knocking. We are at a perilous time in our History whereby our Goverment continues to grow and our rights diminish. Tracy invites you to come and learn about what your rights are specifically as it pertains to your property (your business). Tracy holds a BS in Economics from Washington State University as well as a BA in International Business and recieved her Juris Doctorate from Gonzaga University. She is a member of the Washington State Bar Association. She enjoys all things health and wellness, and the occasional bowl of ice cream......to keep perspective.
