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.

Feel Better FAST with a Spiritual Present for the Holiday Season


15 Kislev, 5775      

Less than 2 weeks to go until Hanuka. Kawanzaa and Xmas are coming up, too.

Here's something that several people recommend for the people on your gift list who need medical miracles and soothing ways to deal with relevant needs:

I'll be sharing endorsements for the book
(including the updated edition) 
this week. Here's the first one...

January 3, 2007 - My dear Yochi,

Girl, you and I are kindred spirits.

I just finished reading your wonderful manuscript, and I stand in awe of you.

Fifteen and a half years ago I was the recipient of a heart transplant. I know what you mean about being wheeled into surgery, taking one last long lingering look at the people I loved and who loved me as those big doors closed behind me...

You are Jewish and I am Christian, but the importance of the spirituality you described was incredibly accurate. After I had been accepted as a candidate for a transplant, some ladies from my church visited me. One of them chirped, "We are praying that they will find a heart for you."

I was appalled. "Don't do that," I said. "You are praying for something bad to happen to somebody else. Pray as I do - that God will heal me, and leave the means up to Him and the doctors...

OK, God, I thought. You know what's best for me. Here I am. I'm yours...

Your workbook is great... 

Your book should make crises easier to face for most people. You did a great job with it.

Anyone who gets past self-pity long enough to pick that book up and get into it should have an easier time of it.

A crisis is a crisis, and your book doesn't change that. What it does is provide people with some practical advice on how to deal with a crisis.

Great stuff, Yochi!

After reading your book, I feel like hugging you...

Love, Carl
