Naturopathic Practitioner and Certified Nutritionist, Anne Dunev, PhD, C.N., is in private practice at Lisa Benest MD Dermatology in Burbank, CA. She taught at the College of Naturopathic Medicine in London, and has been a featured speaker at Wellness Festivals in the U.S. and U.K.

She wrote a column on Health and Wellness for the Wood River Journal in Sun Valley, Idaho.

As a seminar leader and radio show guest, she has spread the word about the threat to human health because of our toxic environment and dependence on pharmaceuticals. Unless we return to the wisdom of natural medicine and “real food” diets, human health will continue to deteriorate. Hippocrates said, “Let your food be your medicine, and let your medicine be your food.” The finest cuisines in the world have featured fresh, whole foods and that is what our bodies deserve, not the processed, devitalized, chemical substitutes that make up much of the standard American diet.

I personally know what it was like to receive the email that opened with "Congratulations" and invited me to retrieve a voucher good for two tickets to the Michael Jackson Memorial at the Staples Center.

Sunday was a busy day, and I did not check my email until midnight....

Thank You, Bill Maher, For Asking Where in the World is Barack Obama and What is He Going To Do About Healthcare?

(92) Comments | Posted June 16, 2009 | 11:04 AM

Just yesterday I asked my husband, "Who does Obama think he is -- Lindsay Lohan? Every time I look at the news, there is Obama -- having another Kodak moment." Then I find out Bill Maher noticed the same thing. And had the audacity to mention it on national television.

Once upon a time, not so very long ago, there was a town called Edendale that had many little children. The children were very happy. They liked to run and play and giggle and tell stories, much like children have always done.

Let's Have a Heart to Heart

(0) Comments | Posted February 11, 2009 | 8:38 PM

I don't think it is simply ignorance that caused our ancestors to consider a heart could be "broken". As a practitioner of energy medicine (chi meets the nervous system) I have found that people who are grieving or have experienced a recent physical or emotional trauma often experience a change...

Seeking Happiness? Try Pursuing Purpose

(8) Comments | Posted February 6, 2009 | 3:31 PM

I think there can be little disagreement that America, as a whole, has gotten lost in recent years. Otherwise, why do we find ourselves enmeshed in a foreign war that drains our treasury to no discernible end, and facing the worst economic turndown recalled by most of us?

The Mind, The Brain and Being Us

(9) Comments | Posted January 13, 2009 | 3:38 PM

I like stretching the boundaries, going beyond the safe, the mundane, and mediocre. I don't believe we were meant to live quiet, secure, small lives. Of course, this has gotten me into a lot of trouble. In many ways things are rigged so that we don't dare much--we...

1. Include a good fish oil capsule (2-4 daily) in your diet every day. This kind of Omega 3 oil helps decrease inflammation, and helps mobilize stored fat in the body.
