Ask Dr. Bunny. Is there help for chronic illness? Dr. Robin Bernhoft, Guest

Dr. Robin Bernhoft

Dr. Robin Bernhoft

Advanced medicine specialist, Dr. Robin Bernhoft, joins Dr. Bunny today to share his amazing story.  Dr. Bernhoft discovered that something which was intended to stop infections, was actually making him chronically sick!  A fascinating and informative story you need to hear!

About Dr. Bernhoft:

Once upon a time, I was a budding professor of surgery.  I did the general surgery residency at UCSF, a fellowship in London in liver and pancreatic surgery, published a couple dozen research papers and joined the clinical faculty of the University of Washington.

After I got sick, I got well  with the help of Dr Phil Ranheim, who practices Environmental Medicine.  I retrained in Environmental Medicine, which deals with allergy, and with the various toxins which cause most disease. (According to the CDC, virtually all chronic illness results from the interaction between genetic vulnerability and environmental exposure.) After a couple years, LDA had cured most of my allergies, I had my liver working properly and scientific detoxification had given me back excellent health, which I still enjoy.

Toward the end of my training in Environmental Medicine, I attended a conference of the Institute for Functional Medicine, and was hooked.  I read their Textbook of Functional Medicine cover to cover, studying their approach, and now practice Functional and Environmental Medicine, with excellent results (when people stay with the program).

One word of warning:  we don’t have any quick fixes.  If you want a pill to mask your symptoms for a while, don’t come to us.  We don’t throw pills at symptoms.  We deal with underlying causes of disease, and recovery of health takes time.  You didn’t get sick overnight, and you won’t get well overnight.  In my case, it took me around a year and a half to get back most of my health.   Couple years after that to finish the job, and ongoing maintenance now (organic diet, pure water, sauna once or twice a week, occasional chelation) to maintain health.

Everything we do has science behind it, and proven results.   We can’t fix everything, but we can help a lot of people get a lot better.  If that sounds like what you need, give us a call.

Ask Dr. Bunny. Yours, Mine and Ours? Darian Taylor, Guest

Dr. Bunny and Darian Taylor

Dr. Bunny and Darian Taylor

Darian Taylor joins Dr. Bunny to share a very special story.  Darian reconnected with her current husband at their 49th class reunion, fell in love and married – blending their 10 children, and lots of extended family. They are living proof that love can be found again later in life, and blending large families can be done successfully!  What a beautiful story!

Yours, Mine and Ours refers to a great movie from 1968 starring Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda.  It’s about a widower with 10 kids who marries a widow with 8 kids and blends into one big happy family!  Such a great story that it was remade in 2005!

Darian Taylor is an Arbonne District Manager & Independent Consultant, as well as a BNI Referral Masters member in Ventura County.

About Darian Taylor:

I started with Arbonne 10 years ago because my 401K had taken a dive and I knew I couldn’t live on my Social Security alone (yes, I‘m old enough to be on Social Security – I’m 74 and yes that is a current picture of me).   I had purchased the products and within three days of using the RE9 Anti-Aging skin care line, my daughters (who were in their 40’s at the time) said they could not believe the difference in my skin and how good it looked.   Then I found there was a business connected with the products and have never regretted being a part of this fantastic company since.   I love sharing Arbonne products with my clients and educating them about how pure, safe and beneficial they are and sharing the Arbonne business opportunity with those who want to change their lives for the better.

Ask Dr. Bunny. What’s the interior design business like? Nancy Cranford, guest.

Nancy Cranford

Nancy Cranford

Nancy Cranford, owner of Nancy’s Design, joins Dr. Bunny to discuss the interior design business and how she started Nancy’s Designs.

About Nancy Cranford:
Ever since my mother’s house was featured in Architectural Digest 10 years ago, I had the unrelenting impulse to become an interior designer. Working to create the ideal living space became a passion of mine that fuels me to this day. From the simple act of hanging a new picture to redesigning an entire household, nothing inspires me more!

People have always told me I had “the eye” for home decor. So after 10 years of working in the business, I now realize that it takes the perfect combination of intuition, design trends, and an overall sense of aesthetics to make my clients’ projects truly shine.

Every new job I take on is like a commissioned art piece; the furniture is the subject, your accessories are the accents, and the window treatments are the frame. When I’m in my element, no idea is spared, no fabric unviewed, no ottoman left unturned. And in the end, each room re-designed is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

Because I want the best for you, I work with the most talented seamstresses, upholsterers, and fabric suppliers I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. With this network of diligent, hardworking, and creative people to make it happen, there’s nothing we can’t accomplish!

Ask Dr. Bunny. What is “Spot Cleaning” your life – and how do you stop it? John Gray, Guest

Stop Spot Cleaning Your Life

Stop Spot Cleaning Your Life

John Gray, owner of Done Rite Carpet Care & Restoration, and Author of “Stop Spot Cleaning Your Life!”, joins Dr. Bunny today to discuss his inspiring new book!

John says, “My goal with the Stop Spot Cleaning Your Life, book,  is simple and straight forward. It’s to SHOW YOU (side-by-side with me in the trenches of the pages) the five proven steps to take that empowers you to experience tangibly, and enjoy perpetually, a dramatically enriched life”.

John Gray was in the middle of what most would call a mid-life crisis. With his marriage falling apart, his carpet-cleaning business on the brink of failure, his relationship with his children disappearing, and his faith being rocked to its core, John asked the age-old question “Why isn’t this getting better, no matter what I do?” and was startled when God began to speak to him as one Carpet-Cleaner to another.

Using the proprietary process John had developed for correcting ( not cleaning) carpets, God showed him how to remove the reappearing spots in his life– spots that had accumulated and soiled his life over the course of an extremely dysfunctional childhood and messy past, including decades of substance abuse, surviving 2 near-death experiences and 7 vehicle totaling accidents, a train wreck of a first marriage, and a one-sided relationship with his Creator.

In this raw account, John shares the Restorative Cleaning Process that he developed for his clients and the parallel step-by-step guide God gave him to restore his entire life, making it possible for him to:

-Heal Reappearing Spots in His Life + Relationships
-Achieve His Dreams + Enjoy a Perpetually Enriched Life
-Become the Man He Knows He is Here to BE

If you want to start preventing, correcting, and eliminating pain-in-the-neck, reappearing life and carpet spots, this book is for you.
