Optometric Extension Program
Welcome to The Hollistic Wellness and Vision Institute!
Our Mission Statement:
Our goal is to correct, enhance, and rehabilitate our patients’ vision as much as they desire. We promise to remember that you are a whole person, not just a pair of eyes. We will discuss eye health issues with you and recommend clinically tested holistic protocol for many general health conditions that might affect your vision and/or eye health.
Dr. Dunn is an Optometrist and his recommendations are based upon his understanding and interpretation of how eye health and general health relate to the vision system. Neither medical treatments nor medications should be changed or discontinued without first consulting the prescribing physician.

The word that standard medicine has forgotten—Why
With standard medicine, you go to the doctor because you develop symptoms. The doctor will ask you what the symptoms are and perform tests to determine what “illness” has caused the symptoms. He will then prescribe a course of treatment to eliminate symptoms.
Homeostasis means that a system or an organism has achieved balance. Dr. Dunn believes that when your body, mind, and senses are in balance, you have achieved homeostasis and you can function at your highest potential. Dr. Dunn’s breakthrough holistic program strives to achieve homeostasis through the elimination of physical, mental, and environmental toxins.
The first step is to know your body.
Two surveys will pinpoint areas of imbalance in your body that are creating any symptoms that you might have. Measuring your physical characteristics including your blood type will determine foods to eat and foods to avoid, the best foods for weight loss or weight gain, the type of exercises that are best suited to you, and any clinically proven nutritional supplements that your body might need to balance and heal itself.
The second step is to know your mind.
Science tells us that your body is composed of unique parts that are linked together by chemicals made by the individual cells of your body. Your subconscious mind directs the production and release of many of these chemicals. When you can direct or at least control your subconscious mind, you move towards homeostasis and a better life. Two surveys will pinpoint the circumstances in your environment that are toxic to your mind. Then you will be taught 2 powerful procedures for calming and directing your mind to reduce and/or eliminate mental toxins.
The third step is to know your five senses.
All of the senses of your body send information throughout your brain which causes different types of chemicals and hormones to be released. These chemicals affect the organs of your body. An example of this might be the smell of gasoline bringing back the memory of a car accident that you were in. This could cause your body to release the same chemicals that it did at the time of the accident and this would raise your blood pressure and throw off your blood sugar. Our sense of sight, hearing, smell, tough, and taste can input toxic stimulation or balancing stimulation. You will be taught to identify toxic input and how to replace it with balancing input.
The final step is to complete your New Life Document.
Your New Life Document consists of the procedures that you have chosen to add to your life to reach homeostasis. This is a living document and is meant to be updated as often as you wish. It represents a contract that you have made with yourself that makes you victorious in life rather than a victim of life.
