Therefore, a special thank you to the following people who have helped me make this book the best it could be: </p><p>Marilyn FrazierMy partner Marilyn has been a steady support during the lows and highs of creating this book. Not only has she been emotion-ally supportive, but she invested her own money in its produc-tion because she believed in the project, and more importantly, she believed in me. Thank you, Marilyn. I love you.</p><p>Cynthia LoganI met Cynthia in Bozeman, Montana shortly after I launched my first magazine devoted to natural living, and she worked for the magazine as a writer and editor. She rewrote several of my original pieces which I published as articles in my magazine, </p><p>Acknowledgments</p><p>http://www.thenaturalguide.com</p></li><li><p>6TheNaturalGuide.com</p><p>and which I collected and expanded in order to write this book. Cynthia edited and wrote several chapters of this book based on my input and research. There is simply no way I could have produced such excellent writing without Cynthias intimate involvement with this project. Thank you, Cynthia.</p><p>Kelley GuineyKelley worked for me as a writer and editor when I launched my second magazine in Seattle. She has an amazing ability to really understand what Im trying to say, and to help me say it clearly. She catches the smallest of details as well as the big ones, and her eagle eye helped make this book the best it could be. Thank you, Kelley.</p><p>Dr. Ron Hobbs, N.D.Dr. Hobbsa naturopathic physician and a faculty member at Bastyr University (Seattle, Washington)reviewed the chapters that discuss detoxification, supplements and natural medicine.
