Part I: Deborah Vidal, VIDALSPEAKS
deborah-vidal

As a child Deborah loved animals so much she could not eat them and by her young teens she was a vegetarian. At the age of 11 she had a terrible accident where she died and was resuscitated back to life. That left her with many years of horrible headaches and back problems. At the age of 23 after only 3 years of learning golf she qualified for the LPGA golf tour and ranked 43rd in the world after 2 years. She played on the LPGA tour for 11 years but under the name Deborah McHaffie since she was married at the time. She believes she was the only vegan/vegetarian on the tour the years that she played. Although she was a professional athlete first, she always considered health & food her passion in life. Her back finally could not take anymore after 11 years on tour, along with many chronic infections from all the pesticides on the courses she left to find her health and pursue another career. She did TV for the Golf Channel and CBS for 4 years and finally left to fulfill her life work of helping people & healing. That is when she found homeopathy! She began my classical homeopathic practice in LA in 1999 & have been helping patients regain their health until just recently when she decided to take a break to start her podcast, which is called VIDALSPEAKS. After years of practicing & being concerned how sick & suppressed people were she felt compelled to speak out about the dangers of suppressing symptoms with pharmaceutical drugs & not understanding nature’s law. She speaks about healing through a plant-based diet, using homeopathy & detoxing to regain health. She is loving podcasting & feels she has found her life work since her desire has been to reach the huge mass!

Deborah is certified by The Council For Homeopathic Certification and a member of NASH (North American Registered Society of Homeopaths), where she served as Vice President for 2 years. She has lectured at the National Homeopathic conference and she currently teaches at homeopathic schools in Southern California. She did a post-graduate study in Italy for 7 years and has studied with one of the best homeopaths in the world, Dr. Farokh Master. Her homeopathic practice, named LA Homeopathy, has served patients in Hollywood, California for 17 years.

Deborah is a graduate of Cornell University’s Plant-Based Nutritional Program and has a diploma from Westbrook University in Nutritional Balancing Science, which is a study to learn how to detox via hair analysis. Ever since her teenage years she has been a lifelong student of the idea of “Food as Medicine” for acute problems and to sustain health.

Part I: Jeff & Joan Stanford, Dining At The Ravens
Joan and Jeff Press Photo
Jeff and Joan Stanford came west to Carmel, California to find careers in education, agreeing to help manage a small inn while looking for work. Jobs were scarce, the United States was in recession, and they found themselves enjoying their guests and rehabilitating the property they managed. The Inn allowed both of them to return to their former interests. Passionate about early education, Joan trained as a Montessori teacher and received her MA in psychology, specializing in Art Therapy, at Sonoma State University. Today she is a registered art therapist, collagist, and educator. Jeff became vegetarian as a first step to honor all life, not only the lives of his family, friends, and pets. He and Joan sought to create an inn that sat softly upon the earth. They created one of the first “green” bed and breakfast inns without realizing they were doing so. Understanding that their Inn was a destination, Jeff and Joan wanted to provide the highest quality food to their guests, which Jeff began cooking in the early 1990s. The restaurant followed their philosophy serving a whole food, plant based dishes designed to rival the cuisine found at the highest rated restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area.
