It's a delight to find myself again in this community of friends, giving nutrition lectures for the umpteenth year, feeling those around me share deep commitments to healing our planet via day-to-day life-style choices of kindness, nonviolence and naturalness. It seems like just yesterday that I became a vegan in 1976, then went to the North American Vegetarian Society conference in Ithaca (where I now live) and met other vegetarians for the 1st time. I look forward to teaching people for years to come how to rid their lives of animal-derived foods.

[Dorothy L. Yacek-Matulis] I've been a vegan for four years, at first for environmental reasons, but additionally have continued for ethical and health reasons. I enjoy ethnic music and vegetarian ethnic foods. I play domra and percussion in zima eastern European ensemble (also do the vocals) and would appreciate playing at more vegan/vegetarian gigs.

Vegetarian Summerfest is the premier vegetarian event of 1996. Health is the result of healthy living. Moving towards a plant based diet is the most significant personal statement those concerned with their own health, that of their loved ones, or, of the planet we share with all of creation - could possibly make.
Specializing in helping others shift toward a plant based diet, with appropriate diagnostic protocols in assessing intestinal function and its relationship in the prevention and reversal of degenerative disease. Employing hygenic principles with appropriate use of phytotherapy as well as diet and lifestyle modification.
