Dr. William Davis
Wheat Belly

Dr. William Davis, New York Times Bestselling author of Wheat Belly, will be at the WELL Expo on Saturday, February 8.

Dr. Davis is a renowned cardiologist based in Milwaukee and has been featured on the Dr. Oz Show. After witnessing over 2,000 patients regain their health after giving up wheat, Dr. Davis reached the disturbing conclusion that wheat is the single largest contributor to the nationwide obesity epidemic - and its elimination is key to dramatic weight loss and optimal health.

All About Chiropractic
Dr. Bailey Nye
Dr.Bailey Nye, originally from DeForest, has chosen to plant her roots in Madison, Wisconsin, along with her husband, Dr. Kyle Nye and daughter. Madison has been a dream location for raising a family and practicing as a Wellness Provider and Educator. Dr.'s Kyle and Bailey Nye both sought educations at the top school in their field, graduating in early 2011. Dr. Bailey then went on to become a certified Health Counselor from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. Their mission is to empower as many people as possible to experience and express their optimal health potential through genuine care and education. They do this by combining the very best hands-on technique with state of the art diagnostic equipment while at the same time focusing on a "whole person" approach to wellness. A husband and wife team has been proven to limit diversity in the wellness profession and continues to touch and affect all types of people in the community. Both Doctors have spoken widely on many topics such as; stress, nutrition, longevity, fitness, obesity, pediatric health, health safety, and many more. Their presentations are both entertaining and educational. While both are highly sought-after wellness educators, they both firmly believe in the premise that the body heals itself and that the body is a self-regulating, self-maintaining organism that is controlled and regulated by the nerve system. If there is an interruption in the nerve system, the body's ability to function fully is diminished. It is our purpose to inspire, promote and celebrate healthy lifestyles and guide not only our practice members, but our entire community to a new experience of life.
