FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Journal Empowers Caregivers To Reflect On Their Own Needs

Rosalyn Carter said it best: “There are only four kinds of people in the world — those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers,
those who will be caregivers, and those who will need caregivers.” Yes, It Really Is All About Me is an enlightening book from Darleen Miller that seeks to empower selfless caregivers to create their own personal to-do list that nurtures the mind, body and spirit.

“Whether we are parents, grandparents, teachers or medical professionals, we all belong to a community of caregivers, and we often neglect our own needs,” Miller explains. “As we explore your personal Journey of a Lifetime, this inspirational journal will help define and support your relationship with self.”

Yes, It Really Is All About Me features a journal format that guides readers through a step-by-step journey of self-realization and self-nurturing, beginning with the question, ‘Who am I?’ The book is divided into four categories: Physical, Intellectual, Emotional and Spiritual, with written exercises, insights from the author and positive statements of empowerment.

Designed for the caregiver who loves others and wants to serve their world, Yes! It Really Is All About Me aims to impact the lives of caregivers by raising their conscious awareness of their own needs and leading them down a nurturing path where they feel loved and appreciated in their service.

At an early age, author Darleen Miller began her own personal journey as a lifelong teacher and caregiver to her parents, grandparents and her three children. During her 47-year marriage, Miller supported her husband’s military career and became his primary caregiver as he battled cancer for the last 12 years of his life. He passed away at their home with hospice care in July 2010. This experiential workbook is a reflection of Miller’s holistic self-exploration in caregiving experiences. Her passion for teaching, writing and healing unite as tools to help fellow caregivers embrace a new conscious awareness of life. Miller offers numerous classes that focus on mind, body and spiritual development with self-empowerment.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Revolutionary Method Can Break Endless Cycle Of Emotional Overeating

The solution to overeating and belly fat is shockingly simple. The root cause of overeating and weight gain is in the emotional brain. Our traditional approaches treat the thinking brain, that is, we are treating the wrong brain. As Laurel Mellin, Ph.D., explains in her breakthrough book, The Stress Eating Solution: A Proven, Neuroscience Method for Ending Overeating, we need emotional tools to solve problems rooted in the emotional brain.
During more than 30 years of research, Dr. Mellin crafted a way to take charge of the emotional brain. In her method, cravings and urges to overeat can be good for you. They activate the emotional wire that triggers overeating, and only when activated, can we rewire it. In her method, when cravings occur, instantly using the tools both shuts off the craving and begins to rewire the circuit that triggers it.

In an amazing about-face, all based on cutting edge neuroscience, Dr. Mellin delivers a program to “go to the emotional gym” daily to practice shutting off cravings, celebrating each small but important victory in clearing out the stress wires in the emotional brain that cause us to overeat.

The Stress Eating Solution walks readers through 30 days of effective strategies to transform their food, mood, love, and body circuits using Dr. Mellin’s proven method of Emotional Brain Training (EBT). Readers can experience immediate benefits, and using this method over time will promote lasting results. Dr. Mellin’s program is the only weight method other than surgery that has been shown in peer-reviewed research to produce lasting weight loss. For the first time, her methods are available to the public through this new book.

Readers will gain valuable benefits to ultimately help them:

1) Answer that nagging question, “Why do I overeat?” Overeating is caused by chemical surges unleashed by stress wiring. Yes, we are chemically driven to overeat.
2) Figure out why we can’t stop. We can’t stop because the wire in our brain tells us that we get our love, safety, comfort or pleasure from overeating.
3) Shut off cravings in real-time, so a new sense of peace, confidence and power replace the self-judgment and shame of repeatedly losing the war against carb cravings.
4) Use the tools repeatedly to transform the drive to get love/safety/comfort/pleasure from overeating into the drive to eat healthy, be vibrant and have joy in our lives.

We have thousands of diets, and people know what they should do; it’s just that they can’t do it. That powerlessness and the resulting self-blame are what harm us. Knowing what to do or being mindfully aware works in low-stress times, but research has shown these approaches are ineffective at the high stress levels of modern life. We need emotional tools, and The Stress Eating Solution offers these tools and more, to help readers end their cravings for unhealthy foods, regain control of their lives and move forward with improved overall well-being.

Dr. Mellin is also introducing a new mobile app, Brain Based Health by EBT, which can help readers use the tools in real time to stop craving and binge eating at the time the urge arises.

Laurel Mellin, Ph.D., is a New York Times bestselling author; health psychologist; Associate Clinical Professor, School of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco; and founder of the Emotional Brain Training (EBT) method. She is also the leader of the Brain Based Health Movement, mobilizing individuals, universities and corporations to access the natural pathway in the brain to rapidly get from stress to joy. She has been a faculty member at UCSF for more than 30 years, and her work has been featured on KQED public television, Oprah, Today, Good Morning America, and in U.S. News & World Report, Time, The Conversation, Psychology Today and many more. Her method was named one of the “Top Ten Medical Advances of the Year” by Health magazine. Dr. Mellin’s credentials are from the University of California, Berkeley, San Francisco State University, and North Central University. She is a Ph.D. health psychologist, a Master’s level nutritionist, and has received government and health organization awards for her research and public education. Her two latest books are The Stress Eating Solution and The Stress Overload Solution, which give the public an opportunity to experience the 30-day, step-by-step way to learn how to become emotional superstars, and move through stress to joy, often in as little as four minutes, to stop cravings and stop the “stress buzzer” from being stuck on. Dr. Mellin is an internationally-recognized expert on obesity and stress.

Three-Time Breast Cancer Survivor Relates How Dreams Saved Her Life

Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos kept waking from dreams of monks who said she had cancer, but doctors could find nothing. In the end, her dreams were validated—she had breast cancer. Dr. Larry Burk followed his nagging suspicions that dreams could be important bellwethers of cancer and other serious diseases and conducted research that supports that premise. Now, O’Keefe-Kanavos and Burk have teamed up to produce Dreams That Can Save Your Life: Early Warning Signs of Cancer and Other Diseases.

Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos, the three-time Breast Cancer survivor employed a combination of dreams and conventional medicine to heal her body to beat back cancer—all three times. She was one of Dr. Burk’s Breast Cancer Dream Research Program research subjects at Duke. The resulting conclusions were published in various medical journals. O’Keefe-Kanavos has made appearances on TV’s Dr. OZ (https://kathleenokeefekanavos.com/dr-oz-show-appearance) and local television and radio shows.

In Dreams That Can Save Your Life, O’Keefe-Kanavos and Burk have collected not only the true accounts of people whose dreams were later validated by pathology but also the results of research studies that support the precognitive power of dreams. They also discuss how people who want to tap into the power of their dreams can learn to remember their dreams, learn their dream-language and keep a dream journal.

“We all have the power through dreams to transform our health, our business and our relationships for a better life,” says O’Keefe-Kanavos.

Former Competitive Athlete, Dancer Uses Own Healing Journey To Guide Others On Their Paths Toward Better Health

Almost nothing in the human experience can compare with having achieved the peak of wellness and performance and then having it all ripped away in a heartbeat. Kristin Hagen knows what that feels like.

Hagen at 19 was a competitive dancer with Team USA, a national award-winning organist, an original artist and a contestant for Miss Idaho USA. But it was 1994 and the airbag in the car in which she was riding was first-generation and high-powered enough to cause her serious injury. Three years later, lightning struck a second time and Hagen was once again the victim of the redesigned airbag, this time suffering severe and immediate demobilization from the sheer force of the deployment.

Through her faith and evolving 21st century healthcare, however, she was able to successfully reverse the effects of the trauma and recover her former level of wellness and mobility, essentially effecting her own cure. Hagen literally walked away from her experience with a profound respect for the ongoing shift in the way medicine is practiced, delivered, and integrated. Align Above: My Passionate Dance at Life! is the first in Hagen’s five-plus book series (with accompanying adapted screenplays) that Hagen says she hopes will motivate people to embark on their wellness journeys. Her screenplays, based upon her Align Above series, are available to movie producers serious about adapting her story into an original film.

“It’s time to make a movement, time to make a change and time to be truly well,” she says.

These days, Hagen provides many perspectives on health and wellness, including in the areas of nutrition, hands-on clinical care, nursing and clinical informatics, and advocacy. She develops custom solutions for clinicians and patients, designed around their needs.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Newsroom Dispute Turns Violent In Yellow, A Journalism Thriller

A principled news director, a ruthless female television manager known as The Barracuda and a corporate manager with a gambling addiction set the stage for a thriller where manipulation of the news for personal gain trumps journalistic integrity.

Yellow, by Jeanne Charters, takes readers into a newsroom of the 1980s at the highest-rated television station in Pennsylvania. Finley Smith is its news director. When she learns from her top reporter that the Pennsylvania Governor has hired a mob-owned construction company to repair a bridge in Pittsburgh, she plans to report it. Her unscrupulous station manager orders her to “leave it alone.” But when a reporter’s probe reveals dangerous truths about the construction company’s shoddy work, Finley opts to buck the system and run the stories. This sets in motion a deadly dispute.

Although Finley’s reputation is irreproachable, making it difficult to fire her, the station manager and corporate president conspire to have her eliminated.

Between the covers of Yellow, Charters expertly weaves a suspenseful web of ambition-fueled deceit, financial desperation and corruption that ultimately culminates in a grisly crime. A veteran of broadcast television, Charters draws from her own experiences to inform the character development and story arc, lending authenticity to every page.

Will Finley Smith emerge with the truth — and her life — intact?

Born in small-town Ohio, author Jeanne Charters is a veteran of the broadcast television industry. The former Vice President of Marketing for Viacom TV began her career in radio and TV marketing, where she proved to be an expert at writing and producing effective television campaigns. Her talents caught the eye of Viacom Television, and when they approached her with the position of Vice President of Marketing, she jumped at the opportunity. She would later open her own broadcast ad agency, Charters Marketing. For years, she traveled to television stations from New York to Hawaii, producing and placing television and radio campaigns for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. At the same time, Charters worked with select local retailers on their campaigns.

Charters grew up believing she’d be a stay-at-home mom and live in her hometown for the rest of her life, but life threw her curveballs. When her first husband took a job in Chicago, Charters experienced culture shock of the highest order. After four children and a divorce, Charters ended up in Albany, New York, where she met and married Matt Restivo, her husband of 35 years and counting. When it came time to retire, Jeanne and Matt moved to Asheville, NC, and she began writing in earnest: columns for magazines and newspapers and finally, novels.
