About Ignite

If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.

Why (and how) Your Multi-vitamin Might Kill You

Amy Moll

Healing Response Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine


From a very early age, Amy knew her purpose in life was to help people experience a greater level of health and well-being through natural methods of healing. As a child, she spent lots of time outdoors making “potions” with leaves, roots, sticks and acorns, and by the age of 13 knew she wanted to be an herbalist. She was most likely influenced by her mother who would give her multi-vitamins in her Christmas stockings and bring green beans with to McDonalds to substitute for fries on the rare occasion the family would go there. Her mother continues to be one of her greatest teachers and positive influences. After designing her own major in Health & Wellness at the University of Minnesota, and studying Western Herbal Medicine at Southern Cross University in Australia, she completed a Master in Oriental Medicine, Magna Cum Laude, from the Minnesota College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. During her studies, she co-founded the Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Student Organization of the Midwest and served as the Vice President of the university’s Student Senate. At Healing Response Acupuncture Amy combines her knowledge of Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture and nutrition with craniosacral therapy to provide long lasting relief and improved health in her patients. Her greatest joy is seeing people’s vitality and quality of life improve. Amy specializes in * fertility * pre-natal & post-natal care * hormonal imbalances * anxiety and depression In her free time, Amy loves to read, cook delicious organic meals, bake yummy gluten-free desserts, and do anything that involves being outdoors in the sunshine. Someday, she aspires to write a book, learn to play the Cello, and travel the world.

This presentation will explain the difference between a "natural" vitamin and the "synthetic" or "fragmented" vitamins that are being put in most vitamin supplements today. It will discuss the negative health impacts that synthetic vitamins have on people's health including increased risk of stroke and death. Included is information on why the public does not know about this - and the economic investment drug companies have in the billion-dollar supplement industry.
