American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) – Las Vegas – Dec 11-12, 2014

Dr. Shawn Talbott (Ph.D., CNS, LDN, FACSM, FACN, FAIS) has gone from triathlon struggler to gut-brain guru! With a Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry, he's on a mission to boost everyday human performance through the power of natural solutions and the gut-brain axis.

These last couple of days in Las Vegas have been terrific – and I’d rather have these presentations that “happened in Vegas” NOT “stay in Vegas” – but get shared around the world!

I prepared for the first presentation as I do for most of my recent presentations – with an Axio:

A4M prep with Axio

The first presentation was about how maintaining cellular balance can lead to good health and improvement mental/physical wellness (referred to as “Vigor” – a unique combination of physical energy, mental acuity, and emotional well-being).

The second presentation was about protecting the body by reducing cellular stress through activation of the body’s own internal antioxidant enzyme systems. I was privileged to share the stage for this presentation with my colleague and good friend, Dr. Mark Gordon, a well-respected cardiologist from Sioux Falls, SD.

Here are the slides that we used = Talbott Gordon A4M Dec2014

I hope that you enjoy these presentations and that you’ll decide to share them with others.

Thanks for listening…

  • Hi Shawn,

    I was hoping to show your slideshow to a doctor friend, BUT it appears the slides are oversized and thus have words cut-off, for this specific presentation (even after downloading). Would it be okay to repost the presentation with slides sized to match the window size (might have just been an exporting issue?) The previous presentation was awesome, and no issue with the slides, so I’m not sure why this one would be any different.. and I checked on 2 different computers on my end, so I assume it’s to do with source files.

    Here’s the link:

    What do you think?

    Thanks for your help!!

    Kevin 🙂

  • Dr. Talbott, your talk with Dr Gordon is a wonderful tool to share Nrf2 activation with health professionals. However the slides don’t come in properly. Would it be possible to fix this so we can send the link along with the audio file?

    Thank you!
