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.

The ABC's of Yom Kipur: How to Pick Yourself Up after a Fall


9 Tishrei, 5773

I've been recovering from the ill effects of eating non-organic foods at the homes of friends on Rosh HaShana. The medical consensus is that my body is so cleansed of the gunk that most people swallow on a daily basis, that my body rebelled at the onslaught. It has not been a pleasant experience.

Other than that, I've been focusing on the spiritual meaning of the Jewish High Holiday season. Tonight is the beginning of Yom Kipur. You might appreciate reading The  ABC's of Yom Kipur to get a glimpse of what it's all about. 

Here's a video to illustrate Yom Kipur a bit more


 This is a thought-provoking essay entitled
Dying to Live.

One of the riveting prayers of Yom Kipur 
can be heard at U'Netaneh Tokef.

You can click on 
the English translation 
of that prayer.

Then you can ponder 
Chief Rabbi Sacks' essay, 
Coming Home.

Find more inspirational ideas in the E-book or print edition of EMPOWER Yourself to Cope with a Medical Challenge

And yes, I'm holding back from eating foods not good for my health. My friends sympathize.

I wish you a year filled with blessings.

Face Your Medical Problems with Dignity.  
Face Your Future with Optimism.
