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 Happiness that Whole Foods Bring


16 Sivan, 5776

I posted a recipe for home made pesto a while back, and I've enjoyed tinkering with it over time.

I also have a hobby of helping patients in a local hospital when they simply cannot stomach hospital food. I bring them home-made fare loaded with nutrition, flavor and pleasure-providing texture. The medical staff notices that they tend to do better soon after eating my home-cooked meals.

This month I helped a friend, and he's been doing a review series on Facebook about everything I made for him (a LOT!). I doubt that any professional chefs have enjoyed such fun at having their hard efforts praised in public. 

My friend is making more medical progress, thank GOD. Here's a peek at his humor-filled food review series in progress:

Continuing with my reviews of Yocheved Golani's meals for me:
This is a home made pesto on rice cracker. Most pestos are purees, heavy on oil. This is a rather dry pesto with stems and leaves relatively intact. It's hard to describe the texture, almost like a dry rub. Delightfully different.
Yocheved Golani Fennel greens blended with Brazil nuts, pumpkin plus sunflower seeds, Himalayan salt and grapeseed oil, preserved with a spritz of fresh-squeezed lemon juice. I'm so happy that you enjoyed the lively mixture.

Ira Machefsky Interesting. I usually don't like Fennel because of the licorice taste. Maybe the leaves are different.

Yocheved Golani The organic nuts and seeds bring a bouquet of flavor and aroma to the hand-made pesto. It ain't yer store-bought stuff.
