TAKE BACK YOUR HEALTH™

And Our Relationship with the Viruses, Bacteria & Molds Around Us

Virtual Conference & Exhibit Hall: January 23rd &  24th, 2021

UNDERSTANDING OUR GLOBAL MICROBIOME

Take Back Your Health™

VIRTUAL CONFERENCE 2021

Understanding our relationship with the complex community of microorganisms, viruses and fungi around us could hold the key to unlocking the mystery of chronic disease and how to attain powerful immunity.

Get event updates and announcements!

In response to the global events of 2020, Take Back Your Health™ Conferences have shifted to facilitate this great awakening in the space of health and immunity. 

We feel that recent events have highlighted how much vital knowledge about immunity and the role of microbes is missing from our culture. We will explore these topics with a series of experts who can help us understand how to move forward in this new world.


Our annual fall event has transformed into two events. The first event is this virtual event that you see here on this page, happening in January 2021. It is focused on the world of microorganisms, their relationship with human health, and how we can thrive in a world teaming with these invisible microbes. Second, there will be a live Take Back Your Health™ Expo in the Northern Virginia suburbs of D.C., brimming with small health businesses that we love to support for the good work they do in keeping us healthy, and for their sustainable and responsible business practices. More information on that event will be posted soon.

  • Do I have to live the rest of my life in fear of viruses?
  • Why do some people get sick from them, and others don't?
  • When causes some bacteria, molds and viruses become dangerous?
  • How can I prepare and protect my family from these pathogens going forward?
  • Is it possible to overcome chronic infections like Epstein-Barr Virus, Lyme and others?
  • How do different personalities, genetics, and lifestyles affect our susceptibility?
  • Which strains do we know for certain are beneficial to our health, and how can we leverage those to keep the others in check?

Have Recent Events Left You Wondering...

All of these questions, and more will be addressed!

Your Host, Robin Shirley

WHO ARE WE?

Hi! My name is Robin Shirley. I grew up with chronic pain, headaches, rashes, depression, digestive discomfort and out-of-control systemic inflammation, and was diagnosed with Systemic Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at 11 years old. I tried everything to heal naturally. Food changes and supplements helped a lot, but nothing truly took the pain away. I was diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease ten years later, and I was finally able to get to the root of the pain. I have personally experienced the power of a natural approach to reducing pain and inflammation. I am now 32 years old, a mother of two beautiful babies and running the business of my dreams. 


I founded Take Back Your Health Int’l in 2010 with the mission to share what I was learning with others who are chronically ill. Our Take Back Your Health D.C. Conference, and our sold-out Retreats draw repeat attendees and have grown a like-minded community of thousands of health enthusiasts who are taking back their health. Learn more here.

Guided Visualization for Parasympathetic "Rest & Digest"

Tai Chi

with Robin Shirley, CHHC, AADP

with TBA

This guided visualization is called "The Relaxation Technique" and has grown from a simple childhood bedtime technique that Robin's parents taught her, into a full guided visualization used at Take Back Your Health™ Retreats. It will help your body get into the “rest and digest” mode – where the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) restores homeostasis to the body, allowing you to heal.
