Keynote Speaker, Dr Joe Esposito, celebrity health radio and TV host. Guest on Dr. Oz

 Dr. Joseph Esposito, affectionately known as "Dr. Joe" to his colleagues, patients and friends, has become one of the most dynamic, authoritative international speakers on nutrition in the country. Dr. Joe began his graduate work In 1981 at Life University in Marietta, Georgia. He chose Life University because it was the best education available. The more he discovered about chiropractic, the more amazed he was at how far reaching it could be. Then, when he began to research nutrition, he discovered the “whole package of health,” that is, removing interference from the nervous system (un-pinching the nerves) thus allowing the brain to communicate with the body, improving the digestive system, and giving the body the food it requires to function at 100%. Along with being board certified in chiropractic, he is also board certified in pain management, orthopedics and double board certified in nutrition. He also has a B.S. in clinical nutrition, is a retired dietitian, an award-winning author, and has been in practice for over 32 years.


 Dr. Samuel A. Mielcarski, DPT

Whether your health challenge is weight-loss, needing more energy, becoming more fit, looking younger, eliminating pain, or conquering disease, Dr. SAM (aka “The Health Raiser!”) can help you improve your health. Dr. SAM teaches others a true 'system of health' that is safe, affordable and easy-to-follow! Best of all, he helps people find the true 'quick fix' needed to help them feel better quickly. As a speaker, author, physical therapist, retreat leader, and holistic nutritionist, Dr. SAM hasbeen guiding others toward health success for over 22 years. The simple advice and solutions he offers often become irreversible knowledge The guidance that he shares could not only change your life, it may even help save it! 


 Beth Houser Coghlin, MS
Beth is the new owner of The Living Foods Institute. Early in life Beth learned the value of good health and natural healing from the balance of her medical Dr father and yoga teacher mother. Beth started her professional career as a Health and English teacher at a school for children with special needs, later serving as principal of the school. In the early 2000s, she left the school to open a yoga and natural healing facility, which she owned and operated until her father was diagnosed with a terminal brain disease, seven years later. Her concern for her father led her to return to graduate school and delve more deeply into her research about neuroplasticity, brain healing and the gut-brain connection. Her master’s thesis focused on the specific impact of yoga on neurological healing. In late 2018, Beth was thrilled to have the opportunity to acquire The Living Foods Institute from Brenda Cobb. She looks forward to its continued growth, eventual opening of new locations, and the opportunity to bring balanced natural healing to a broader market.
