Dave Dahl

I had to pay the bills and get some fresh bakery experience after 20 years of cooling off. So I started by filling in for absent bakers, de-panning thousands of loaves of Nature Bake bread, mixing batches, etc. Everything felt fresh. I was learning to bake all over again. Soon I was working full time as a mixer, and day lighting as a product developer, reformulating Nature Bake's packaged cookie line to contain neither trans fats nor animal products. I also added a new cranberry-oatmeal variety (these cookies are still sold at Trader Joe’s under their brands). This was in my first few months out. I was on a mission and had several more new varieties of cookies in mind to develop. But Glenn wanted me to focus elsewhere. He felt we didn't need more cookies at the time. He wanted bread. Of course, Glenn knew the bread had to be really special, but I think he was hoping I wouldn't come up with anything that cost a lot to make. That wasn't to be the case. One of the reasons my bread is so good is that I didn’t formulate with cost in mind. My first bread, Blues, was the costliest sandwich bread ever produced at Nature Bake. It was also Glenn’s idea to call it Dave’s bread. I never would have thought of putting my own name on a loaf of bread. Names I had in mind? Blues Bread and Killer Bread. I wasn’t so sure about using the name “killer”, especially with my history (although it makes great rumor material), but one day I sketched a loaf of “Killer Bread” and then I started calling my 2nd bread creation “Killer Bread” and the name began to gather momentum. It really did seem to describe the bread to a tee, in one word. At some point it became obvious: it all had to be Dave’s Killer Bread. View Guest page

Carolyn Dean

For over 28 years, Carolyn Dean, MD, ND has been a health pioneer who was one of the first to see the coming health epidemic in America. As a result of poor water quality, modern farming methods, processed foods and the use of environmental toxins, she saw the depletion of vital minerals and nutrients from our water supply, soils and foods as a root cause of America's health problems. With over 75% of Americans not getting their RDA of the vital nutrient "magnesium", a deficiency in this mineral has increased over the years and has contributed to many common health issues including heart disease, insomnia, diabetes and many others. She’s authored 22 books including "Future Health Now Encyclopedia", "The Complete Natural Guide to Women’s Health, "The Everything Alzheimer’s Book", "Homeopathic Remedies for Children’s Common Ailments", "Menopause Naturally", "365 Ways to Boost Your Brain Power: Tips, Exercise, Advice", "Hormone Balance", "The Yeast Connection and Women’s Health", "IBS for Dummies" and "The Magnesium Miracle".

Michael Edson

I became interested in the concept of Chinese energy (qi) in my late twenties when I first started studying Aikido and Karate. Over the years I also studied Tai Chi, and lived in China to study Qi Gong under Master Sun who had his own cancer clinic, helping people overcome cancer with Qi Gong. Qi Gong is an ancient form of healing through certain ways of moving, breathing and visualization. I entered Acupuncture College at 42 in New York City, and graduated from Tri-State College of Acupuncture in 2001, and have practiced as a licensed acupuncturist in New York State since July, 2001. Since graduating from Acupuncture, I have co-authored a 230 page textbook entitled "Natural Eye Care - A Comprehensive Manual for Practitioners of Oriental Medicine" I love the concepts of Chinese medicine, as they approach health and healing from a truly holistic perspective, viewing and treating each person as unique from everyone else. With its rich 3,000 year old tradition, there is a never ending wealth of healing knowledge to draw upon. In Chinese medicine, each person is viewed uniquely. Even those patients who come in for treatment for problems that look the same symptomatically or from a western diagnostic perspective, the underlying reason why dis-ease occurs in each person differs from one to the other, therefore treatment has to be tailored to the unique needs of each patient. Mission My personal mission as an acupuncturist and health care practitioner is to help my patients overcome their health condition(s), and provide them with necessary tools and guidance to be able to engage in their own healing process. I believe in the natural healing process of the body, and that we ultimately have to rely on this process to gain and maintain health. I believe that dis-ease typically takes a long time to manifest, and is the result of a long term energy disturbance within the mind, body and/or spirit. Dis-ease can result from excess stress (emotional and/or physical), poor diet, lack of exercise, genetic disposition, exposure to chemicals or pesticides, excess repetitive motions, or any combination of the above. There are also conditions that result from injury and trauma, and these can be usually be helped as well through Chinese medicine. I hope that I may be able to help assist you in achieving optimum health. 136 N. Chestnut Street, New Paltz, New York 12561 845-255-8222 michael@naturaleyecare.com View Guest page

David Schneider

Having lived his first quarter-century in Southern California , David Schneider, M.D. finally escaped after medical school and has moved progressively northward up the state. He practiced Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine in Central California before joining the faculty of the Mercy/Methodist Family Practice Residency in Sacramento , where he returned to his beloved medical education, teaching Family Medicine residents (physicians in training). “Dr. Dave” has periodically been a “student” of the philosophical aspects of Zen and the Tao (Buddhists and Taoists would cringe at the idea of a “periodic student”), as well as a practitioner and teacher of mindfulness meditation. The four winds have blown him safely to his new home in Sonoma County , where he practices medicine and teaches budding young doctors to be family physicians at the Santa Rosa Family Medicine Residency, one of the nation’s top training programs in the specialty. He also produces Dr. Dave’s “To Your Health” segments for Wine Country Radio and online at www.BlogTalkRadio.com/DrDaveS. In addition to his long experience in training medical professionals, Dr. Dave enjoys music both as a listener and a very non-professional musician. Dave’s musical tastes run from The Allman Brothers to Frank Zappa, and he is also a Shakespeare buff and a devotee of the theater. His professional interests include the doctor-patient relationship, clinical skills, dermatology, cardiology, endocrinology, and teaching the breadth and depth of Family Medicine. He would be just as happy picking a wine to match a meal, though he has the good sense to not do so while at work. View Guest page

Trudy Thomas

I am disabled with RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) for several years now. It is a relatively unknown neurological condition that effects my entire sympathetic nervous system. It is chronic, progressive and incurable. In addition, I have neuropathy, several inoperable back issues and other health problems I deal with on a daily basis. I host a weekly radio show called "Living with RSD" discussing how to live with a chronic illness. I interview medical professionals, therapists and patients in hopes of spreading awareness of the plight of millions if people who live every day in pain. Both physical and emotional issues. Goals I am Working On: Goal #1: I am improving my quality of life. One of the ways I am accomplishing this is by learning to manage my pain better and in more creative ways. Goal #2: Everyday I try to to make someone else's day better or support them with their chronic pain issues. I have learned to live one day at at time and so far it has worked for me. I will not let my diseases/conditions control my life. I refuse to be influenced by people with negative attitudes. I am responsible for my life. I do not blame others, hold resentments or waste time dwelling on what might have been. My first thought in the morning is not "poor me, I hurt". It is thank you GOD for another wonderful day. I also know in my heart today is going to be better than yesterday because I am going to make it that way. Keeping that positive attitude is what makes it possible for me to accomplish the goals I have set for myself. Yes, I am in pain 24 hours a day. The pain is hot, burning and never lets up. I am also in a wheelchair, I only have the use of one hand and at times am unable to speak clearly. But these are symptoms of my disease, they do not define me. They make me stronger, work harder and even more determined to someday walk again, unaided, and do all the things I can to enjoy life with my family. Join me Monday's at 8 pm east and Friday's at 12 noon eastern for Living with RSD. It is a one hour, call in show where you can ask questions and participate in the discussion. Everyone is welcome.

Global Water

Global Water is based upon the belief that the lack of access to safe drinking water is the primary cause of hunger, disease and poverty throughout the world. Founded in 1982, Global Water is a volunteer-based, international, non-profit humanitarian organization with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status in the United States. We’re focused on providing safe water supplies, sanitation and hygiene facilities, and related health programs for rural villages and schools in developing countries. Our program is designed to create safe water supplies in rural villages to enable the rural poor to help themselves. To achieve this goal, Global Water’s strategy is to provide permanent solutions to a region’s water needs by implementing sustainable and appropriate systems (to include state-of-the-art technology) to: • Access, purify, and distribute new sources of safe water for rural villages; • Build sanitation facilities, such as latrines, to create safe waste disposal while providing dignity to rural villagers; • Build hygiene-related facilities, such as hand washing stations, for rural schools and provide complementary educational materials; Our water projects have an immediate life-changing impact, particularly to women and children, who have the responsibility in rural areas of developing countries to gather water for the family every day of their lives. Successful Global Water projects utilize water and sanitation as a tool to create sustainable socioeconomic development in these poor rural communities. View Guest page

Robert Weir

Born in 1948 as one of the early baby boomers and raised in a family-owned farm implement dealership and country store in rural Southeastern Michigan, Robert Weir grew up interacting with customer farmers who valued the soil, hired mechanics who exhibited a strong work ethic, and a family who loved one another and contributed much to each other’s lives and community. His boyhood friends crafted their own baseball diamond from a fallow field, built their own backstop, mowed the grass, chose their own teams, and played with whoever showed up — without coaches and umpires and parents watching their every move. Their friendship carried over to pick-up basketball games on a concrete pad in front of the Weir business and card games within the lads’ homes. In this environment, Robert learned responsibility, independence, the value of an entrepreneurial spirit, and how to have fun. Here are some of his accomplishments: 2010: Traveled to Barbados, Azores, Spain, Greece, Bulgaria, Germany, Russia, and India (New Delhi and Himalayas), going by tall ship across the Atlantic and on the Aegean and Black seas and cargo ferry on the Baltic Sea.
