Bette Dowdell grew up in The Salvation Army, the daughter of not one, but two, preachers, a fabulous way to start life.

While also learning how to make life sing and dance, Bette worked as an IBM Systems Engineer, a small-company consultant, a software company owner, and a NASD-licensed mutual fund representative.

Bette writes and speaks in two areas
that can make or break us: Good health and a fulfilling life.
Maximizing Health

First, Bette’s had to deal with endocrine (thyroid, adrenals, etc.) problems most of her life–ever since a drunk driver damaged her pituitary gland when she was 11-months old. Doctors didn’t help so much.

Finally realizing it was up to her, she launched into thirty-plus years researching what builds health and what breaks it down. And her research continues as new information comes to light. Now, Bette shares her knowledge with people who are dragging through life so they don’t have to spend years figuring things out.

Here’s a fact: Our food supply doesn’t give our bodies what they need, no matter how hard we try. To be healthy–and stay healthy–we need to take vitamins and minerals. Which brings up another fact: We have no idea what’s good, what’s hype or how to build a balanced program.

Based on her years of research and experience, Bette wrote an e-book to get you past the vitamin learning curve and into health. Pep for the Pooped: Vitamins and Minerals Your Body Is Starving For helps you build a solid health foundation even if you can’t tell one vitamin from another or explain why we need minerals.

Besides giving you the information you need, links in the book take you directly to the right brand, the best type, at the lowest price, which will save more money than the cost of the book. Skip the guesswork and get some real, practical help.

Maximizing Life

Bette takes great joy in writing and speaking about her Christian faith. She wrote How to be a Christian Without Being Annoying to explain, in snack-sized bites, how the Bible describes Christianity. And she wrote On We March: A memoir of growing up in The Salvation Army, a rollicking story of the Dowdells’ life of difficulty and the energy, optimism and faith that transformed it.
