Who we are?
You could be asking who put these pages together
and where are they getting this information. Here we are.
The Players at Donabee.com Health & Wellness
Donabee is Donna Begley. This is her
website. It was her suggestion that we put this information on the
internet. Donna is a grandmother living in NW Ohio with her three
cats and Tiny, her Chihuahua. Donna grew up in rural Ohio.
Dennis Begley is the second member of this team.
Dennis is a 50 something peaceful warrior. He started on a quest for
health information in college during the late 60's
reformation/Vietnam War. Macrobiotics food and healthy eating were
popular topics on the college campuses during those years. After
college Dennis discovered he suffered from Celiac Sprue, an
intolerance to gluten. When he ended up in the hospital from intense
pain in his colon he was told by his Doctor he had spastic colitis.
And it was a result of the stress of being a salesman and not
exercising properly. "Here take these pills and exercise to work out the stress."
Of course, the pills did not end the problem. At best they covered
up the symptoms. "Pizza would put me out of commission for days.
Little did I know what the real cause was."
Years later that he learned by accident, reading a book a friend had
from Prevention Magazine, that spastic colitis is caused by an
intolerance to gluten. What the heck is gluten and how do you end up
eating it? That started a massive quest for knowledge. About this
same time the dear friend with the Prevention magazine, Peggy
Redmond, learned she had chronic fatigue. Together, they exchanged
lots of information and resources. Peggy introduced Dennis to
materials on diet including Food Combining, foods that fight. This was also where
Dennis learned about the Tao and its ancient philosophies. It was
also during this time he started a quest for knowledge about health
and realized maybe Doctors don't have all answers.
Dennis retired from the insurance business after
30 years. During those years he watched as his clients developed
more and more health issues. When he first started writing life and
health insurance things like allergies were rare. Over those years,
it became very common to have clients tell about the allergies they
developed as an adult and almost common place to hear about children
with allergies and all sorts of health issues. What made that
Why did we do this page of information?
We had lots of information and resources on health
and wellness. Both of have had an almost life long interest in the
topics. Watching as the health of our friends, family and neighbors
took turns to the worse. Not long ago, Dennis had the opportunity to
hear Dr. Ray Strand give a talk in Minneapolis, MN, on "What your
doctor doesn't know about nutritional medicine may be killing you".
Here was a real doctor telling what he learned after 30 years of
practicing regular medicine, giving out as many prescriptions as the
next doctor. He said prescriptions are a last resort, not the first.
If your body is feed properly with the optimum vitamins and minerals
in addition to good foods, your body will be healthy. And even more
earth shaking, free radicals are a major cause of almost all
degenerative diseases. Dr. Strand's talk pulled everything together.
We eagerly studied Dr. Strand's materials and followed his lead to a
leading supplement company he worked with, USANA Health Sciences. We
had been looking for a top quality supplement/vitamin for years. How
do you know which one is the right one? Now we did. Both of us have
seen and felt amazing changes.
The path was obvious, we had to share this
information with as many people as we could. It was an obligation.
It was a moral commitment. We knew that many people would turn there
heads and not want to hear this, but there are many that want to
know how to stay healthy. People like you, who are reading this
right now, are who we built this page for.
Working with USANA, Dr. Strand and the others
involved lead us to more information. Much of it you could find
yourself on the internet or in a library if you knew where to look
or what to look for. We made the decision to use this web page as a
resource. A central place you can find this information. From here
you can learn more from the links and references. We realize that
much of this information is contrary to accepted and established
sources. Too bad it is that way. But the only way to change the path
of sickness we are on is to get the information to the people.
Change of this path can only come from the bottom up. We all have to
say "we know the truth and we are not going to take it anymore."
Democracy begins with you, after all.
