Growing up on a Minnesota farm gave Pamela Ziemann an up-close view of the United States’ food-production industry. She watched as chemicals, hormones, and genetically modified organisms became nearly ubiquitous in the farming process, as they helped to guarantee bounteous yields, although she was anything but impressed. She decided to pave her own path, circling back to organic, raw, sustainable nutrition.
Today at Elemental Cuisine, Pamela uses her experience as a public speaker to educate people about the food system and help them return to a more natural way of eating. During her online classes, she sheds light on how today's commercial food supply can be detrimental to our health, then discusses how plant-based diets can improve mental clarity and physical well-being. She pairs this discussion with cooking instruction, demonstrating how to make wraps, sauces, and dressings, and maximize food’s nutritional value without filling the saltshaker with crushed multivitamins.
Meet the Surgeon: Kent Leavitt, MD
A good surgeon knows his limitations, and Dr. Kent Leavitt of Bellevue LASIK & Cataract Center doesn’t walk patients down a treatment path that isn’t going to be effective. Case and point: he rejects about 10% of his applicants for LASIK surgery—but he doesn’t give up on them. Instead, the ophthalmologist recommends a different approach for their vision-care needs. Here’s more on the doctor’s background.
Number of LASIK procedures performed: 20,000 and counting
Other areas of expertise: cataract surgery, corneal transplant, and eye disease
How he sees things clearly: Dr. Leavitt had LASIK done on his own eyes.
Where he cut his surgical chops: The University of Michigan Medical School, then fellowships at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia
What he does when not in the surgery room: Dr. Leavitt teaches as a clinical instructor, consults for medical organizations, and writes articles for ophthalmology journals.
Dr. Shao-Hao Cheng treats patients with neck and back pain caused by poor posture, car accidents, and sports injuries. His techniques vary depending on the treatment; sometimes he relies on small instruments to realign the spinal column, while other times he uses his bare hands to soothe muscles. The massage therapists on his team know plenty about that, as they also use their hands to relieve chronic pain with Swedish and deep-tissue techniques. Dr. Cheng and his staff also work with patients to prevent future injuries, offering nutritional guidance and advice on how to build a posture-enhancing sleep nest.

On the playground floor, toddlers and preschoolers can clamber atop multicolored climbing structures, and find seats on spinning carousels. The facility also features a separate seating area, changing room, and birthday party room.

Q&A with the Owner
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
My passion for holistic health began in a small herb shop while I was working on environmental protection and restoration projects many years ago. I discovered natural approaches to healing that felt deep and empowering. From there my interest branched into many natural healing modalities and I ended up training and specializing in two different modalities of energy healing: Reiki and Healing Touch. Every day I'm in awe of the body's biofield and ways it impacts our mind and body (and vice versa.). The potential for healing through energy work is so personal and quite often profound that I'm just honored to be able to do this work with people.

Energy Healing: Facilitating Holistic Health The human energy system provides the foundation for the body to do what it does best: maintain or return to an optimal state of health. Interventions that address the energy system in order to improve wellness are known as energy healing. Energy healing is a complementary mind-body-spirit intervention for boosting overall wellness. A trained practitioner works with the body's subtle energy systems to restore, activate and balance energy that has been depleted as a result of stress, illness, injury, grief, medical conditions, surgery, medical treatments or other issues. A healthy energy system activates the body's innate ability and desire to heal. Subtle energy systems are the foundation of health, and include the multidimensional biofied, chakras, meridians and acupoints. Asymmetry in the biofield, compromised chakras and nonpolarity in meridian flows can create energy blockages. Signs that may indicate disturbances in energy flow include tiredness, a weak immune system, emotional distress, discomfort, aches, illness, slow or impaired healing ability, hormonal imbalances, brain fog, and ongoing health issues. Research in clinical settings has reported the effectiveness of energy healing in speeding up healing of wounds, initiating the relaxation response (necessary for healing), minimizing stress surrounding medical and surgical procedures, and supporting pregnancy and birthing. More than 100 hospitals in the U.S. offer energy medicine to their patients. Energy healing is not meant to replace traditional medical or mental health care. As an adjunct modality, it can increase the effectiveness of existing treatments, therapies and medications by bringing the mind and body into a restorative state. Sessions are conducted fully clothed on a treatment table or sitting in a chair, using both off-the-body and light-touch healing techniques.
