Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2010 7B DUNN'S, from page 6B for-a date Erin noted. Besides being reasonably priced, she's noticed couples on a first date will take comfort in the fact they have friends around them for moral support. A coffeehouse, said Erin, "is a non-alcoholic bar where you can bring the kids." "It's the third place," added Jack, which is the place you go after family and work the place you choose to go. "All of these people who'd never be in a room together are here together... Every- body knows everybody, even if they don't see each other anywhere else," Erin said. Dunn's has also created "coffee snobs," she said. Customers will tell her that when they go to other coffee places they now know enough to ask when the coffee was last brewed. Jack added that there are people who drive from Idaho to San Francisco each year, and they time the trip to make sure they come through Quincy when Dunn's is open. Of course, coffeehouse owners like Jack and Erin will tell you it's the coffee, in the end, that makes the cof- feehouse. Jack goes one step further: it's the water that makes the difference. "Coffee is 99.99 percent water," he said. Dunn's is triple filtered. Jack won't tell his secret recipe--that is, the make-up of these filters. Suffice to say, "It's so filtered, there,s only wet left' in it," he said. Aside from that, the beans they get from their friend Cliff are what set their coffee apart. Rather than roasting his coffee in a contact drum roaster, he has a three-story: tall air roaster. This allows him to roast custom coffees that are fine-tuned and that bring out the unique charac- teristics of the bean's origin. The beans at Dunn's are so fresh, they aren't roasted until Jack and Erin make their weekly order. In addi- tion, the price is much better than that of their corporate competitors at $9.80 per p6und. They sell three or four blends, said Jack, but primarily they sell "coffees of origin." They aren't mixes, or as Jack so poetically puts it, "floor sweepings," onto which the unnamed corporate com- petitor likes toplace a fancy name. Their coffees include Java Estate, Balinese, Papua New Guinea, Timor and French ' Roast, to mention a few. A couple of final points worth noting: Jack has just completed a nook that he calls "The Nerd Pit," which has five Internet outlets. Dunn's has a five-megabyte download hotspot. It doesn't matter that 'some of us don't know what that means, because the nerds who live in the pit do. It's faster, explained Jack, than the county hook-up, and lots of county workers and teachers come'to Dunn's to get their work done. Finally, when asked how long they intend to stay in business, the answer was quick and tongue-in-cheek: Just until Frank and Amy Carey of Carey's Candy write them a check for the place. I il, i Pauline Kimmel, who has worked at Dunn's for eight years, and Erin Dunn are the souls of kindness who help make this coffee- house a great community meeting place.

Many of these body toxins come from your diet, prescription and over-the-counter, drug usel and environmental expo- sure. Inside your body, fats, free radicals and other irritating molecules act as toxins as well. The colon is the body's sewer system, and if not treated properly, it can accumulate poisons, which are absorbed into the blood- stream. This in turn can play a part in many diseases. Poor digestion, colon slug- gishness and dysfunction, reduced liver function and poor elimination through the kidneys, respiratory tract and skin all add to increased toxicity. Detoxification involves dietary and lifestyle changes that reduce the in- take of toxins and improve elimination. Avoidance of chemicals (from food or other sources), refined food, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco and drugs help bod), for afresh start in minimize the toxin load. These lifestyle changes are a direct result of choices you make in your life. Bowel movements are the basis of your health. Health- care officials say that ff you don't have at least one bowel movement a day, you may be on your'way toward disease. Our bodies have not changed much in the past several thousand years; however, our diet certainly has: A person on a typical American diet holds up to eight meals of undigested food and waste material in the colon, while the person on the high-fiber diet holds only about three meals' worth. When we continuously violate our bodies by eating terrible foods, the result is ill health. Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, and it may be related to diet. So, all congestion and toxins should be re- moved, and removal must begin with cleansing of the bowel. One of the most frequent bowel problems people experience is constipation, when the transition time of toxic wastes is slow. The longer the transit time, the longer the toxic'matter sits in your bowel, which allows it to putrefy, ferment and possibly be reabsorbed. The longer your body is exposed to toxic waste in your intestines, the greater the risk of developing disease. Colon cleansing removes the mucoid plaque (toxic waste buildup) from the colon. Supposedly, even a thin layer of mucoid plaque weakens the body because nature intended the plaque to be sloughed off. Due to stress and diet, most Americans have many hardened layers of mucoid plaque. The healthy colon weighs about four pounds, but one autopsy revealed a colon choked with 40 pounds of impacted mucoid plaque. As the colon becomes impacted with dry putre- factivewaste, its shape and ffmction are affected in numerous ways: Stretch it like a balloon, develop into diverticulitus (poaches on the intestinal wall which may become infected) or fall down upon itself (prolapsed colon). All of these colon malfor- maions greatly impair the large intestine's ability to function, which in turn places severe strain on your digestive organs and affects nutrient assimilation and absorption. ., More often than not, nat- ural colon cleansing means following a colon cleansing diet and taking colon cleans- ing supplementS which may include herbs known to kill parasites and worms; diges- tive enzymes; probiotics (beneficial bacteria); herbs that stimulate the liver, gallbladder and intestines; the new year and also some form of fiber such as psyllium husk or seeds, flax seeds or slippery elm. To cleanse your colon, begin transitioning to a diet rich in raw fruits and vegetables with very few processed foods. A high- fiber diet helps keep your digestive system free of mucoid plaque. Regular and easy elimination will be the rule; toxins will not build up; and foods will be fully digested and utilized. Of course since it was a process of years for your body to become full of plaque and toxins, it will be a process, although faster, to detoxify and get your body back to its highest possible state of health.. A colon cleanse can take about three weeks to a few months or more, depending on the person. As with all diets, consult your physi- cian before making any radical changes.
