SECRET INGREDIENTS, a film by Jeffrey Smith and Amy Hart


Movie begins at 12:30 pm.

Panel following led by Kathleen DiChiara, FDN-P, BNI-P, INHC, includes Dr. Marcia Schaefer, Zen Honeycutt, and others.



Kathleen, a triathlete who mysteriously became paralyzed with debilitating pain, began looking for answers to her health conditions, and those of her children who were also suffering from a list of chronic diseases and disorders – the most heartbreaking was her eldest son Stephen who was diagnosed with Autism at the age of four. At first she began eliminating certain foods, like gluten, dairy and soy, but they only saw limited results – and Stephen was still unable to speak or function like other children.

It wasn’t until she tried removing GMOs and chemical pesticides that they suddenly saw dramatic results: the inflammation and pain disappeared; skin rashes faded away; asthma and bronchitis were suddenly gone; indigestion and bloating gone; and her son Stephen started to settle down and was actually able to learn and speak like other children.

Kathleen’s experience is not isolated. This film shares stories of other families who watched their children recover from autism, asthma, weight gain, skin and digestive disorders and other maladies after removing GMOs and pesticides. Also included are people who recovered from tumors, several types of cancer, and infertility.

Her personal journey back to health and her son’s autism recovery serve as the inspiration for her work and a reminder of our innate capacity to heal. Her clinical work focuses on functional nutrition, the microbiome, and the immunological reactions involved in food allergy and intolerances. 

Marcia Schaefer, DC

Marcia Schaefer, DC grew up in Wisconsin and obtained her Bachelor's degree in Biology before attending Palmer College of Chiropractic to obtain her Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 2010. While studying at Palmer, she could not help but question if there was more to the big picture, and became trained in Holistic Nutrition. It's not every day you get to test the principles that you were trained in, but shortly after graduating chiropractic college, a potential death sentence was put upon her and she decided to put salutogenic principles to work.

Her experiences created a determination and passion to empower and educate others to care more about their internal environment of their being instead of the label handed to them. Through her experiences, her deepest passion is shifting the epigenetic health status of future generations, starting with preconception. Empowering healthy families from fertility forward is her mission, and transforming the way people look at health and wellness for the benefit of our future generations. She currently teaches for the ICPA and resides in Wisconsin with her husband and son. 

Zen Honeycutt

Zen Honeycutt is the founder and executive director of Moms Across America. Moms Across America is the brainchild of Zen, mother of 3 boys, one of whom had life threatening allergies. That is, until she found out about GMOs and helped her sons to avoid them. Her sons with allergies and autism symptoms that got better when they avoided GMOs and pesticides by eating organic. Later her second son experienced a sudden onset of autism symptoms at 8 years old. He tested positive for fungus, gut dysbiosis and 8 x higher the level of glyphosate in his urine than was found anywhere in European testing.  Through an organic diet and restoring the gut bacteria, he is completely recovered.  

Zach Bush, MD

Zach Bush, MD, is one of the few triple board-certified physicians in the country - with expertise in internal medicine, endocrinology and metabolism, and hospice/palliative care. The breakthrough science that Dr. Bush and his colleagues have delivered offer profound new insights into human health and longevity. In 2012 he discovered a family of carbon-based redox molecules made by bacteria. He and his team subsequently demonstrated that this cellular communication network functions to compensate for glyphosate, and many other dietary, chemical, and pharmaceutical toxins that disrupt our body's natural defense systems. This science has resulted in a revolutionary class of dietary supplements.
