About Priority Hearing Aid Group:

Priority Hearing Aid Group has served the Westlake Village/Ventura, California area and its surrounding communities for 6 years. We offer a full range of diagnostic and preventative hearing healthcare professional services, including hearing aid screening, evaluations, hearing aids sales and rehabilitative and preventative counseling. We are dedicated to keeping abreast of the latest improvements in technological advancements in the hearing industry and are committed to offering the most current options to our patients.

How do our ears work?

The ear has three main parts: the outer ear (including the external auditory canal), middle ear, and inner ear. The outer ear (the part you can see) opens into the ear canal. The eardrum (tympanic membrane) separates the ear canal from the middle ear. The middle ear contains three small bones which help amplify and transfer sound to the inner ear. These three bones, or ossicles, are called the malleus, the incus, and the stapes (also referred to as the hammer, the anvil, and the stirrup respectively). The inner ear contains the cochlea which changes sound into neurological signals and the auditory (hearing) nerve, which takes sound to the brain.

She volunteers as a Reiki practitioner at the Cancer Center of Ventura County at St. John’s Hospital in Oxnard as well as hosts Community Reiki Share at Community Memorial Hospital and Coastal Communities Cancer Resource Center in Ventura.

Ask Dr. Bunny. What is Thermography?

dawn_beldenDawn Belden, MA, Clinical Certified Thermographer, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss Thermography – what it is, and how it can help you!  Dawn discusses the differences between a mammogram and thermography, and what she has to say may surprise you.   And Thermography is not only for breasts – it can also used for full-body scans. Tune in for a very informative interview!

About Dawn Belden, MA:
Dawn has a background in holistic education – bringing integrated curriculum to distance learning programs. She is also a learning styles consultant and has a strong foundation in individualized and personalized education. She has studied with Jean Houston and Thich Nhat Hanh, among others, and has co-lead teen retreats in Mindfulness and Awareness, affiliated with UCLA.

Dawn provides the best service possible to her clients.
She feels that thermography gives people a way to actually see, through imagery, the efficacy of their bodies. When clients are able to see themselves in such a way they become effective and pro-active in monitoring and orchestrating their health; thermography empowers clients to be agents of change in a self-directed and supported way.

Dawn is passionate about alternative medicine and used it almost exclusively, to great result, with her daughter and son’s neurological and stomach issues. She feels that because of the pervasive toxicity in the environment resulting in the nearly epidemic numbers of cancer we must have ways to ameliorate and track the effects in our bodies.

About the Ojai Thermography Center:

At the Ojai Breast Thermography Center we offer breast as well as full body thermal imaging for women and men. You will receive gentle and compassionate care which includes holistic counseling for optimal health and well being. Should we see “hot spots” we will guide you towards the best remedies or the right health practitioner for your needs.

We never leave you to fend for yourself after your thermal imaging and consultation. Once you are a client of ours, you will always be considered a client. We are always available for inspiration, guidance and support. We will make time for you, whether by email, phone, or an in-person consultation.

Cheryl Conway

Cheryl Conway, owner of Hair Free Forever, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss hair removal.  Do you know the difference between Thermolysis and Electrolysis?  Does hair removal have to be painful?  How do you permanently remove hair without having skin damage?  What areas of the body can you remove hair permanently?  Tune in and learn these answers and more in this fascinating & informative interview!

About Cheryl Conway:

Hair Free Forever is permanent hair removal with Thermolysis. The procedure is 100% effective for all hair types and colors, and completely safe for any skin type and color. Recommended by Dermatologists, Endocrinologists, and Cosmetic Surgeons worldwide, Thermolysis is clinically proven to be the only method of hair removal approved by the FDA for permanency, to ensure healthy, hair free skin that lasts a lifetime.

Cheryl Conway has been using the Thermolysis procedure for permanent hair removal for 20 years. She studied and practiced in Philadelphia, working with The University of Pennsylvania and Children’s Hospital. After relocating to Beverly Hills in 1997, she specialized in Eyebrow Design. With this expertise she will analyze and execute proper corrections to achieve the perfect shape for each individual patient.

Cheryl is also an Expert Consultant for the California State Board of Cosmetology and has her Teaching Credential in Vocational Education, Designated Subjects. She pioneered the creation of California’s first apprenticeship program for Permanent Hair Removal.

Thermolysis offers patients an FDA approved medically proven, safe and effective procedure for the permanent removal of unwanted hair. “While some patients seek our services for purely cosmetic reasons, we receive many referrals from Dermatologists to treat cases of folliculitis, Endocrinologists for conditions that cause symptoms of hirsutism, and Cosmetic Surgeons for reconstructive surgery cases.”

As a member of the American Electrology Association and the Electrologist Association of California she finds continuing education an essential part of practicing Permanent Hair Removal as an Allied Health Field.
