Ask Dr. Bunny. How did Dr. Bunny become Dr. Bunny?

dr-bunny-certificatesDr. Bunny believes that everyone has a story.  Today, she shares her’s with you!  Ever wonder how Dr. Bunny got to be, well, Dr. Bunny??  Tune in and prepare to be inspired!  A fun, and interesting, story that’ll leave you with a smile.

From Dr. Bunny:

You may know by now, that I love to interview people and I love to get to know who they are as well as what they do. I really believe that everyone has a story. Some stories might be more exciting or interesting than others, but I think everyone has a story.

I also believe that we all have something in common –  and I like to discover what that is, when I interview my guests. I am constantly amazed at what that common denominator is. Kind of like Six degrees of separation –  the idea that all living things and everything else in the world is six, or fewer, steps away from each other so that a chain of “a friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps. Another words, I believe we are all connected.

As I meet, and sometimes interview, people, they often ask about me and what I do. When I tell them that I am a Hypnotherapist, the question that they usually ask is some form of, “REALLY?? How did you get into THAT?” or, “What does that mean?” or, “How do you DO that?”

What I have noticed is that each step of the way has led to the next step which, then, led me to the next phase of my life, sometimes kicking and screaming, because I thought I loved where I was and what I was doing and didn’t want to leave it (even though it really was time to move on). Have you ever felt like that? Sometimes we have to break out of our comfort zone.

So, here, in this interview, are the highlights of my career – in the hope that someone might benefit from my story!

If you have a story you would like to share on, please contact me and let’s see if we can make it happen!

Dr. Bunny recently wrote a book called ‘How to be a Woman – 15 easy steps to presenting your best image’.  It’s available through Amazon:

What is Entomology? Here’s what Wikipedia has to say:
Entomology is the scientific study of insects, a branch of zoology. In the past the term “insect” was more vague, and historically the definition of entomology included the study of terrestrial animals in other arthropod groups or other phyla, such as arachnids, myriapods, earthworms, land snails, and slugs. This wider meaning may still be encountered in informal use.

Like several of the other fields that are categorized within zoology, entomology is a taxon-based category; any form of scientific study in which there is a focus on insect-related inquiries is, by definition, entomology. Entomology therefore overlaps with a cross-section of topics as diverse as molecular genetics, behavior, biomechanics, biochemistry, systematics, physiology, developmental biology, ecology, morphology, paleontology, mathematics, anthropology, robotics, agriculture, nutrition, forensic science, and more.

At some 1.3 million described species, insects account for more than two-thirds of all known organisms, date back some 400 million years, and have many kinds of interactions with humans and other forms of life on earth.

About Mr. Bob Kildee:

Bob Kildee was a Michigan native and father of five was best known for his clothing store, Bob Kildee Clothing, a Camarillo mainstay that first opened in Old Town in 1954. Kildee’s store, first called Bob Kildee Shop for Men, opened on Glenn Drive in Old Town nearly a decade before Camarillo officially became a city. It was a gamble for small business man but one that paid off.

Kildee’s involvement in the community included numerous service and business organizations. In the 1960s, Kildee headed a committee to bring parks to Camarillo that would eventually become the Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District. He served on the park district’s board of directors for eight years— seven of which were spent as its chair.

Kildee also took part in the committee that helped develop the Camarillo master plan and its official incorporation as a city in 1964.

Kildee was the president of both the Pleasant Valley and Camarillo Lions clubs, as well as a member of the Camarillo Chamber of Commerce’s board of directors and a member of the Patients’ Benefit Board for Camarillo State Hospital.
In 1989, Kildee was named an honorary Don of the city by the Pleasant Valley Historical Society.

Always a proponent of the city’s local businesses, he was recognized as Camarillo Man of the Year by the Chamber in 1975 and was named a Pillar of the Community in 2007.

Born in northern Michigan, Kildee came to Ventura County in 1948 to work at the Naval Air Missile Test Center at Point Mugu for Globe Aircraft. He would soon meet a young Somis woman named Barbara Culbert, and the two married in 1951. A mother of five, Barbara Kildee died in 1988 after 37 years of marriage.

Kildee then married Maggie Heacock Erickson, a former Ventura County supervisor, in 1991. Bob and Maggie Kildee, who share seven children and nine grandchildren, had been married for 19 years when he passed away in 2010, at the age of 90.

About Parabens:
What are Parabens and why is Paraben-free important?
Parabens are preservatives that are frequently added to cosmetics to prevent bacteria growth. They’ve been used since the 1950’s. You will frequently see methylparaben, propylparaben and butylparaben on the ingredient list and these are the parabens to avoid.

Numerous studies have been conducted on parabens, but why should we avoid them? Parabens have been identified as xenoestrogens, meaning they mimic estrogen in the body. This has been linked to breast cancer and reproductive issues. Researchers have located parabens in breast tumors and believe there is a relationship between parabens and tumors. In the July 2002 issue of the Archives of Toxicology, Dr. S. Oishi of the Department of Toxicology, Tokyo Metropolitan Research Laboratory of Public Health reported that newborn male mammals exposed to butylparaben “adversely affects the secretion of testosterone and the function of the male reproductive system.”

Parabens all to appear to be stored in your body, which has a cumulative effect and, over time, may damage health. While there may be no official scientific evidence to confirm that parabens directly cause cancer, it is good to be mindful of the use of parabens. The good thing is that many paraben-free products can be found, so it is possible to avoid them if you are concerned.

Frequently Asked Question:  Is therapy right for me?

Seeking out therapy is an individual choice. There are many reasons why people come to therapy. Sometimes it is to deal with long-standing psychological issues, or problems with anxiety or depression. Other times it is in response to unexpected changes in one’s life such as a divorce or work transition. Many seek the advice of a therapist as they pursue their own personal exploration and growth. Working with a therapist can help provide insight, support, and new strategies for all types of life challenges. Therapy can help address many types of issues including depression, anxiety, conflict, grief, stress management, weight control, body-image issues, and general life transitions. Therapy is right for anyone who is interested in getting the most out of their life by taking responsibility, creating greater self-awareness, and working towards change in their lives.
