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.

Here's What Good Food Can DO for YOU!

Gosh, the Jewish year is winding up and we'll soon be in the thought-provoking month of Elul. That's when Jews spend more time than usual contemplating how to improve their characters, and planning to do so. Then comes Tishre, the month of the Jewish "High Holidays" of Rosh HaShana (New Year's/Time of Judgment) and Yom Kipur (the Day of Atonement for past errors).

One of the ways that people misbehave is with food. Eating for optimal health requires self-discipline, as does anything worthwhile.

Let's look at some evidence for developing necessary self-control (growth is a process, after all):
