Ammi Midstokke is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and regular contributor to several publications. During office hours, she tries to save the world with vegetables in her medical clinic, specializing in autoimmune disease and gastrointestinal disorders. Though as a child she had the more standard ambition of ‘ballerina,’ she was thwarted by an impressive lack of grace, a developing fascination with the microbiome, and an insatiable hunger for (mis)adventure. She lives in her off-grid cabin in North Idaho where she spends most of her time fantasizing about creative ways to kill animals that threaten her garden, optimizing solar panel positioning, and getting lost in the mountains with her brown dog. She will be presenting on the benefits of developing personal connection to the systems that support us, from controlling our own supply chain to accidental conservationism.
