The Pops from Uptown Naturals, Whole Food Nation, were designed by a real person. Dr. Heidi Dulay, Ed.D. M.S. N.C.
The product designer and nutrition fanatic, who arranges flowers and practices Qigong. She's stayed fit (dancing) since she was a little girl, but in her early 30's, she was diagnosed with cervical cancer. That began a still-on-going-quest and love for all things that give and maintain health, especially nutrition.
After spending a week at the Golden Door Spa in the early 80s, she became a total health convert. She won the prize her first week there for losing the most weight in 6 days - 7 pounds. She's very proud of that even now, 20 years later. (She's 5'2" and went from 125 to 118.)
For the last 20 years, she's been on daily lookout for the latest in nutrition and healing through natural means. She's gone back to school to earn 3 more nutrition certifications. and has run a busy nutritional consulting practice, including running juice fasts once or twice a year, for almost 15 years. She's also an accomplished Qigong student and teacher, and delightful flower arranger. Her entire life is about health, nutrition and fitness, how to keep it and offer it to others so they can fit it into their schedules.
Dr. Heidi eschews Whole Foods organic cheeses made from pasteurized cows's milk for unpasteurized cheeses made from raw goat or sheep milk - "because they're easier to digest and the unpasteurized milk and cheeses have all the vitamins, minerals and nutrients that pastuerized cheeses do not have..."
She drives 90 miles twice a month to buy fresh organic eggs, chickens and milk from an Amish family who operate a tiny organic farm. She sleeps with The Omnivore's Dilemma (book) at night...yes there's much more...
