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.

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.

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.”

Ask Dr. Bunny. How can we help children? Susanne Lammot, M.D., guest


rawPediatrician Susanne Lammot, M.D.,  joins Dr. Bunny to discuss how Pediatric medicine has changed over the years, and how prevention is practiced so much more than it used to be.  Nutrition is also a HUGE part of her practice, and she explains how the food choices you make can really impact your health.  Susanne’s Grandmother used to say “Eat food that’s real food” – and it’s still valuable advice to live by today!

Susanne also shares wonderful information about something very dear to her heart: “Nourish The Children” – an initiative that applies business principles to address the problem of childhood hunger in a sustainable manner. Please visit: http://sst.millionsofmeals.com

About Susanne Lammot, M.D.:

Long ago, a young woman graduated from Bishops U, ready to explore our beautiful planet & “make a difference” – particularly for the children of this wonderful world.

I am still “going strong”! enjoying part time active Pediatric practice, and living by the ocean in Ventura, California. My sailboat is tied up behind my house, and an inviting water way leads to my “other love” – the open sea!

As a Pediatrician who is an Ambassador for the Children of the World, I’ve lived in Africa, Europe, Canada and the US, and worked in remote areas of Alaska, and tiny villages in South America. In addition to serving locally, on the Board of Directors of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, I now travel regularly to Malawi, Africa, where we are truly saving lives. Nourish the Children provides hot nourishing meals that attract orphaned children to school. www.nourishthechildren.com. As we nourish their precious minds and their frail bodies, they become involved productive happy teens; elders in their communities learn self sustaining agriculture.

All this – and yes, there is more! As an Independent Executive with NuSkin, (the leading Scientifically based AntiAging Company in the world) travel is part of my business, supporting me as a Humanitarian Entrepreneur.

My 2 children, 7 step kids and many grandkids keep me busy and young!

Children, Sailing & Adventure travel are my loves; I have crossed oceans on a 60 foot sailboat, climbed Mont Blanc in Europe and walked the Inca trail to Machu Picchu, Peru. Yes, I love kids and travel!!

Ask Dr. Bunny. Retired? How does it feel? Mel Sheeler, guest

Mel Sheeler

Mel SheelerMel Sheeler joins Dr. Bunny to discuss retirement.  How does it feel to be retired after spending much of your lifetime being busy?  How do you fill the ‘void’ when you suddenly have the freedom to do anything, or nothing, at all?  Mel has some very interesting insight that might surprise you.

Mel made a conscious decision not to get involved quite as much in Henderson, Nevada, where he and his lovely wife, Kathy, moved to after retirement.  He has become more active in his local church, and is still very involved in the National Police Dog Foundation, as well as still being involved with Caregivers Assisting the Elderly.

This is an inspiring interview with a very special man!

Here’s more info on the National Police Dog Foundation and Caregivers Assisting the Elderly, both of which Mel spoke about in his interview:

About the National Police Dog Foundation:

In 1998 the Ventura Police Dog Foundation began as a local group helping to fund the K-9 program for the City of Ventura, CA. Ventura Police Department Lt. Dave Inglis and veterinarian Dr. Ron Dalzell, along with a few volunteers, realized the need for a civilian organization to help fund K-9 units. In addition, many cities in Ventura County lacked budgets to fund their K-9 programs in their entirety, so the foundation expanded and became the Police Dog Foundation. Not only did police departments lack the initial funds to purchase and train a dog, many did not have a budget for serious medical issues. This continues to be the same circumstance today throughout the US, so the foundation expanded again and became the National Police Dog Foundation. Visit our FAQs page to learn more.

The National Police Dog Foundation began to support K-9 units throughout the United States in 2004. We currently assist law enforcement agencies through funding to achieve their goals of providing a K-9 unit with quality police dogs and training. In addition, the NPDF has also incorporated a network of veterinarians to help assist agencies with providing for maintenance care and possible emergencies as well as costly medical situations that might occur during their active service career. Equally important is to provide continued care for the police service dog after it retires. Our network of veterinarians includes some of the country’s most valued specialists in many varying areas of health care.

Currently many dogs for police service work are imported from Europe. The origins of most working breeds are in these countries, providing us with some of the best bloodlines available. Although through many years of importing excellent breeding stock from Europe, the United States now has the ability to produce dogs of equal quality. One of the many benefits of dogs bred in America is that they do not have to travel the many hours now necessary by plane to come to the US, saving them the stress of these long flights.

It is the mission of the National Police Dog Foundation to raise funds, promote education and awareness for the purchase, training and on-going veterinary care for active and retired police K-9s. We hope you’ll join us in this effort by supporting this noble cause.

Caregivers Assisting The Elderly:

Founded in 1984 with a grant from the Interfaith Council on Aging and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondolet developed a community-based model to meet a growing need in the United States. Today, CAREGIVERS serves hundreds of seniors in six cities throughout Ventura County – one of the largest aging populations in the Nation! Thanks to generous gifts from Individuals, Foundations, Corporations and Public Agencies, CAREGIVERS continues to respond to the important needs of homebound and frail elders.
