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.

Do Alternative and Complementary Healing Things Work or Not?


28 Shvat 5772

Here's a heads-up on the topic for a forthcoming Refua Radio Show, where you can hear me speak about health matters. In a few weeks I'll be making pre-recorded remarks about the alternative healing world, the one with words such as "complementary," "alternative" and "natural." Here's an outtake:

"Some people are angry or sad that they or someone they love has not recovered from or survived a medical situation. They tend to express that unhappiness by scoffing at natural healing claims and techniques. That emotional response to heartache is not an intellectual, fact-based assessment of facts. But over time, some skeptics are becoming believers. Many of them are in the medical world, and what an F-Y-I that is!

"The fascinating TedTalks have featured oncologist Dr. William Li, who cures people of cancer with food instead of using harsh chemicals! His presentation is called “Can we eat to starve cancer?” and the answer, to his former BIG surprise, is a resounding “YES.” Dr. Teri Wahls ended her misery and Multiple Sclerosis with food. She explains how at Minding Your Mitochondria.

"GOD is in the details. So is the natural healing pharmacy spread out across our planet. That natural pharmacy is in plants, animals, simple foods, pure water, air, sunshine and even rain. The trick is to be aware of how to benefit from those items and to avoid health-endangering behavior. Naturopaths study all that. Reputable naturopaths save or improve lives with their knowledge and applied healing skills.

"Still skeptical even though those MDs, PhDs and their naturally healing patients are gaining more health by the day? Do you suppose that a woman, blinded by a benign brain tumor crushing every nerve between her head and body, could hope to regain her vision with crushed optic nerves? Guess again. I did."
