Dr Clark Research Association
5959 Shallowford Road
Chattanooga TN 37421
Hello, my name is David Amrein. Growing up in a home with parents who believe in alternative approaches to health, I was only somewhat interested in natural health. However, in 1995 I came across a book by Dr. Hulda Clark and found it so intriguing that I felt I wanted to do nothing else in my life.
I visited Dr. Clark and talked to her patients and found out that she really was helping many of them. That confirmed my desire to become a naturopathic physician and to incorporate my company called the Dr. Clark Research Association in San Diego in 1998. In line with Dr. Clark's suggestions, the company specializes in pure supplements and energy devices. Our complete product range consists of herbal and nutritional supplements, literature, body products, and many devices.
GOOD FOR YOU! Health Food Shop
Plaza 68, Sweetwater, TN
Owner Diane Israel
Good For You!
CHEO: What brought you to Alternative Health and the field/product you’re involved with?
Diane: Two things. Suzanne Somers for starters; one of her books was like an explosion of truth in my life. That first book led me to books she had read herself and doctors she followed. Dr. Uzzi Reiss, John Lee, Diana Schwarzbein to name a few. I was also driven by the same things that bring most of us to this field. Illness. It was a combination of my own illness; a sudden onslaught of EXTREME aging; pain, fatigue, and depression at age 39 that so far has turned out to be mostly adrenal issues, the illness and death of my best friend (glioblastoma) and the illness and thankfully the survival (bladder cancer) of my father, the same cancer that killed the father of a good friend of mine. I had just had enough! I began to read any book with "MD", or "ND” in the author's title. I wasn't always a person who believed in eating healthy. I didn't know better. I bought the hype like most people do, but I let go of all of my vices, cleaned up my diet and began a quest for renewal of my daily energy. I was desperate and refused to take sloppy answers from my doctors and endocrinologists. I refused to go tuck my tail and suffer.

Chattanooga, TN 37421
CHEO: How long have you been in practice in Chattanooga? Are you a native of Tennessee?
Dr. Tom: I have been practicing in the Chattanooga area since October of 1998. I am a Midwesterner (Wisconsin, Michigan) but my family moved around a lot so I am not really a true native of any one place.
CHEO: What is your personal history? (family, education, interests, etc)
Dr. Tom: My wife, Erin, and I met during the 7 years I practiced in Texas and were married in 1999. We do not have any children but do have 3 dogs and 3-5 cats depending on the day. My undergraduate studies were at the University of Wisconsin- Oshkosh. In 1991, I received my Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic, in Davenport IA. My neurology training was with Carrick Institute of Graduate Studies and I attained my Diplomate with the American Chiropractic Neurology Board in 2005. I attained Fellowship with the American College of Functional Neurology in 2009, and continue my training with 150-275 hours of Continuing Education each year.
My main interest is Neurology as I find it endlessly fascinating. However, I have been playing guitar for about 26 years and enjoy live music. I also enjoy cooking and recently have been learning to garden.

Interview with Pam Schrader, LMT, Pam’s Healing Hands
How did you become interested in natural health and Massage therapy? My interest in natural health began in the 1970’s. My mother was very health conscious and we learned reflexology while I was in high school. Much later a massage therapist friend had a terrible headache and I offered to work on her if she would tell me what to do. Afterward, headache gone, she said that I had “good hands” and that I should go to school for massage therapy. I took her advice and became a licensed massage therapist in 2003. Two years later, I moved to Chattanooga.
I love living and working in this beautiful city with its diverse and friendly people. I enjoy walking and Chattanooga is a wonderful place for doing that.
I am interested in continuing to learn and find answers to why humans function as we do, and how functionality can be improved. I use the phrase Skilled Hands, Compassionate Heart, Remarkable Results because it applies to me and to my work ethic.
CHEO of Greater Knoxville Area President 2011
An Interview with Nancy:
What are your hopes for CHEO this year?
First of all, I’d like to say CHEO has a great foundation thanks to the work of all who have preceded me and it is a privilege to serve on the Board as President with members who are excited about and committed to CHEO. Simply put, if I could name this year, I’d name it “The Year of Invitation”. It all began with a personal invitation from Diane Minch to attend a program. I would not have considered becoming a board member if I was not asked. Imagine if every single CHEO member extended an invitation to one person a month, inviting them to a program. We would be living our mission: to educate the public that they have options to health above and beyond traditional medicine as we know it.
