The Weston A. Price Conference

Wise Traditions Conference 2017

The Wise Traditions conferences sponsored by the Weston A. Price Foundation are famous for the information-packed talks, the very knowledgeable vendors, the excellent nutrient-dense organic meals and banquets, and the great connections and friends you will make there. I never miss them. For more information go here: http://conferences.westonaprice.org/ 2017-conference/

In a rather uncharacteristic move, I will be speaking at the Wise Traditions conference on exercise—generally not my forte! However, I have been researching this area of health for the last few years both clinically and energetically, and have found a lot of problems with aerobics, stretching, yoga, and other popular forms of exercise. Please see below for more info on this talk:

Exercise Tips from an Exercise Dropout!

The Benefits of Active Stretching and Interval Training

Louisa L. Williams, MS, DC, ND

In this dynamic presentation, the neuromuscular pitfalls of various popular exercise regimens such as yoga and aerobic classes will be discussed as well as demonstrated on participant volunteers. This talk will specifically address the physiological and hormonal benefits of active versus passive stretching, and interval training over boot camp aerobic classes.


Comments from colleagues on Dr. Williams’ MRT teaching:


“I appreciated that Louisa took the time to demonstrate and explain the material without rushing, and the fact that she was very clear throughout the class. I like the technique and the self-testing is easy.”

Claudia Sames, Certified Nutritionist


“Excellent organization and presentation of difficult material. Wonderful information, very inspiring. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Allison Hofmann, ND


“This course was well organized yet informal enough to ask questions and exchange ideas. Dr. Williams is an excellent teacher, is very approachable, and communicates well. The seminar setting was very conducive to maintaining focus. I look forward to the intermediate course.”

Claus Fichte, MD


“Overall a great seminar! I found Louisa very clear, and appreciated her methodical approach and demonstrations. She took careful notes of questions and issues that came up throughout the seminar so that she could address them at the appropriate time. It was a good mix of didactic and practical application/practice.”

Katelynn Vifquain, L.Ac.

“Fabulous seminar! Dr. Williams is a superb researcher and magnificent teacher. She has taught me many procedures that I use in my practice and which I now cannot live without! I am excited for her next seminar and hope to inspire more doctors and practitioners to learn MRT.”

Pamela Paetzhold, ND, DC, L.Ac., RDH
