Save your sanity, time & money!

You need to know how to meet your medical and/or mental health needs NOW. You're struggling to survive moment by moment. And you need your dignity.

You're rushing to appointments (the ones you remembered) and/or wondering which treatment to use. Meanwhile, your costs are rising, your needs are changing and you hardly know how to make sense of what to do first, second and later. What about the emotions boiling inside you? How can you calm down with all that's going on?

A former medical coder and medical writer, I've been in your position. I survived a life-threatening emergency with information only a person with my professional experience would know: How to find medical innovators, medical experts and charitable organizations willing to pay part or all of an applicant's specific medical costs, who has software to simplify medical appointment scheduling, a sensible list of items to pack for hospital stays, and more.

I knew that I'd pulled through because of my ability to connect with resources I needed. I knew that most patients lack that knowledge. I decided to provide it, to minimize your suffering.

I believe in empowering terrified, confused and unhappy people with dire diagnoses. I believe that patients should not suffer insults to their dignity in medical settings. I provide information that can help you to manage your problems better, maybe to end them, in the book.

Calm down. Organize your life better. You just might get your grin back.

Quick Weight-Loss Tips that Work!


26 Tishrei 5772

Wahoo! I only gained 400 grams over the high-calorie High Holiday season. To celebrate my self-control (though I still want to taste the kugels I pushed away), I'll introduce you to some time-honored truisms of weight loss and weight control.

Losing weight is rarely quick (unless you have the flu) but a slow, steady strategy to keep your calories in check pays off long-term benefits.

Here are some quick tips to peel off extra pounds:

Eat your carbs with fiber (fruits and vegetables help your body to lose the goo that otherwise fills up your fat cells).

Add quinoa to your meals. Red quinoa is delicious. So is white! The high-protein treat minimizes hunger pains and nourishes you well.

Drink at minimum one cup of water about 15 minutes before meals, and 2-3 liters of water per day.

Add 2 tablespoons of flaxseed to your hot or cold cereals and plain yogurts once daily. That'll take more goo out of your system and leave you healthier than before.

Drink green tea (it can lower your cholesterol, too).

Skip the fried foods, including bourekas, chips, falafels (sorrrrrrryyyyy) and salty buttered popcorn (eat plain popcorn instead).

Add more vegetables and fruits to your menu, and forget the hi-cal salad dressings, mayonnaise and more. Simple lemon juice, garlic, vinegar and olive oil make yummy salad toppings.

Food is for enhancing life, not ruining it!

Definitely dump the colas and white bread. Here’s why.
