"2018 SPEAKER LIST"

Dr. Ted Naiman

 

I’m a board-certified Family Medicine physician and I have devoted much of my career to the study of diet and exercise and their relationship to health. I have used these diet and exercise techniques to treat thousands of patients. I have seen miraculous health transformations and amazing weight loss. I have seen the power of these lifestyle interventions, which can literally cure metabolic diseases (diabetes for example) and autoimmune diseases (such as inflammatory bowel disease). I feel an obligation to help as many people as possible find their path to optimum health.

when I’m not working for one of the largest physician multi-specialty groups in Seattle, you can find me spending time with my lovely wife and daughter, playing bass for one of Seattle’s most popular dance bands, playing Ultimate, or practicing Krav Maga.
