Serendipity Illuminates Ways to Prosper from Unexpected Events

Serendipity Illuminates Ways to Prosper from Unexpected Events

(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety by any print or broadcast media outlet or used by any means of social media sharing.)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Happy accidents led to the invention of many things that we take for granted, such as the microwave oven, the phonograph and the curiously resilient CorningWare dishes. Maybe you don’t aspire to inventing a life-changing consumer product, but perhaps you’d like to switch career paths, meet new people or learn a new skill.
Serendipity is all around you, and it can help you achieve personal and professional growth.

“In addition to the occasional case of the monumental, unexpected occurrence that may be researched and exploited, situations may arise that also lead to a useful and/or profitable outcome,” says Neil J. Farber, MD. “One can know what one wants to achieve but be unable to get to that outcome. … sometimes by chance, the way to proceed may appear.”

Dr. Farber’s new book, Serendipity: Utilizing Everyday Unexpected Events to Improve Your Life and Career, thoroughly explores the role that serendipity could play in our lives and explains that recognizing serendipitous events is better achieved with a certain set of skills.

“You have to have a mind-set that allows you to think that such events can happen,” he explains, adding that by practicing self-awareness and cultivating keen visual and auditory observational skills, we are more likely to spot even the most subtle of serendipitous happenings.

Serendipity describes how to understand the different types of serendipitous events and how they are common to all of us; how to recognize these events when they do occur; how to acquire the skills necessary to become more aware of serendipity; how to “connect the dots” to bring the serendipitous event to a fortuitous conclusion (that is, what skills, assistance and resources may be necessary); and what to do with the end product or idea if it is profitable, or as sometimes happens, when it is not.

Dr. Farber uses events recorded in literature and the history books, as well as events that have occurred in his own personal and professional life to create a helpful guide for recognizing and turning common events into meaningful moments.

Author Neil J. Farber is a Professor Emeritus of Clinical Medicine at University of California, San Diego, and a docent at the San Diego Air & Space Museum. He has been an academic internal medicine physician for 40 years, teaching, researching and providing patient care in medical schools initially on the East Coast. For the past 12 years, he was Professor of Clinical Medicine at University of California, San Diego, retiring at the end of April 2019. He has received numerous awards, including Top Doctor of San Diego five times, and is a member of the FDA Non-Prescription Drug Advisory Committee. He has published over 60 research papers and has had a multitude of serendipitous events occur, which have significantly (and positively) influenced his career and his personal life.

Simplicity of Non-Religious, Non-Discriminatory Spirituality

Simplicity of Non-Religious, Non-Discriminatory Spirituality

(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety by any print or broadcast media outlet or used by any means of social media sharing.)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Spirituality is distinct from religion and does not discriminate. It cannot! says Ravi Kathuria.

To some, the term ‘spirituality’ sounds mystical or complex, Ravi says. “It’s my mission to share with the world, spirituality is stunningly simple and as natural as sleeping.”

It’s also wholly inclusive and accessible to everyone regardless of caste, creed, religious beliefs, age, status, gender or sexual identity. No judgments. No preconditions, he adds.

By quieting our minds — by tapping into the spirituality that is inextricably woven into our DNA — we have the ability within ourselves to experience profound bliss, explains Ravi Kathuria.

“Learn to quiet your mind is the simple message the ancient Indian sages gave mankind,” he says. “Their message was not religious. It was a scientific discovery about human nature that can raise the quality and experience of life.”

Ravi demystifies spirituality and distinguishes it from religion in his thought-provoking book, Happy Soul. Hungry Mind.: A Modern-Day Parable About Spirituality.

Not a “pedantic” book about archaic dogmas, Happy Soul. Hungry Mind. is an emotional and humorous, easy-to-read parable that shares a series of conversations between two old friends who enjoy spirited discussions about the human journey and life’s challenges.

This format allows Ravi to organically capture the pressures of modern life and reveal techniques for calming the mind. He weaves in Spiritual Truths that boggle the mind and demonstrates how spirituality and modern living can synergistically and practically coexist. It may be the remedy we need in this world of stress and anxiety.

Ravi answers questions people have pondered for ages. “I share a definition of God that can change the course of human history,” states Ravi. “It can make the world more peaceful.”

Written for the modern reader, Happy Soul. Hungry Mind. is free from religious doctrines and makes spirituality accessible to the world’s 7 billion inhabitants. Spirituality benefits the religious and the atheists equally. You do not have to change your beliefs to benefit from spirituality, says Ravi.

“This is not our grandfather’s religious spirituality,” Ravi adds. “This is modern, practical — and simple spirituality! It is time to awaken the world as it yearns for true spirituality.”

Author Ravi Kathuria has been drawn to spirituality ever since he was young. A business thought leader, management consultant and executive coach, he has been quoted by the likes of the Wall Street Journal, NPR and the PBS Nightly Business Report.

His first book, How Cohesive is your Company? presented a holistic, cohesive management method that received great praise from top executives and business professors.

In his second book, Happy Soul. Hungry Mind., Ravi uses his analytical and intuitive skills to solve the complexity and confusion of spirituality. Happy Soul. Hungry Mind. is a work of spir-itual genius. Ravi lives in Sugar Land, a suburb of Houston, Texas.

The Power of Honest Medicine Shares Affordable Alternative for Treating Autoimmune Conditions

The Power of Honest Medicine Shares Affordable Alternative for Treating Autoimmune Conditions

(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety by any print or broadcast media outlet, or used by any means of social media sharing.)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s, psoriasis, fibromyalgia and other autoimmune conditions affect nearly 23.5 million Americans, according to the National Institutes of Health.

In her thought-provoking book, The Power of Honest Medicine, patient advocate Julia Schopick (with Don Schwartz) outlines a safe, inexpensive, often dramatically effective alternative to the costly, often-toxic treatments that doctors routinely prescribe for autoimmune and other diseases. It’s called Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN), and The Power of Honest Medicine is filled with compelling success stories from people all over the globe who have experienced relief from their symptoms thanks to LDN.

“There is lots of evidence that LDN is a groundbreaking treatment for autoimmune diseases, helping many patients with these conditions to achieve remission,” Julia writes. “In some cases, it can slow or stop the progression of their diseases. In many cases, patients experience a life-changing relief of symptoms.”

In spite of its documented benefits, the use of LDN to treat autoimmune conditions remains largely unknown among the medical community and the public. Julia is committed to changing that.

The Power of Honest Medicine contains contributions from 18 people from around the world (the U.S., the U.K. and Europe), all of whom are eager to spread the word about how LDN helped alleviate their symptoms of serious conditions—such as chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn’s, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and fibromyalgia—when the higher priced, often-toxic medications they had been taking didn’t work. Also, with many of these conditions, the drugs doctors prescribe can cost thousands of dollars a month, compared with LDN, which costs around a dollar a day.

Additionally, The Power of Honest Medicine contains a section dedicated to helping readers understand LDN and why it has the potential to positively impact those suffering from autoimmune disorders. Plus, the book includes a chapter with strategies for helping readers convince their doctors to prescribe LDN—information Julia has been asked for again and again by her readers and by those who have heard her speak.

Ever since her husband’s death from a brain tumor in 2005, Julia has dedicated her life to patient advocacy and to sharing information about potentially lifesaving alternative and off-label medical treatments. Her first book, Honest Medicine, offered valuable insights supported by patient testimonials regarding the use of four underutilized lifesaving treatments: Silverlon, for non-healing wounds; intravenous alpha lipoic acid, for liver disease; the Ketogenic Diet, for epilepsy; and Low Dose Naltrexone, for autoimmune diseases.

Julia’s husband survived 12 years beyond any doctor’s prognosis, and she attributes this to the innovative treatments she uncovered for him. It’s been her passion since then to prevent others from suffering unnecessarily and having to juggle the side effects of toxic medications with the debilitating symptoms of their health conditions.

“I believe that LDN would be the standard of care for autoimmune diseases if Big Pharma didn’t rule doctors’ prescribing decisions,” she adds.

Julia Schopick is the bestselling author of Honest Medicine and her follow-up book, The Power of Honest Medicine. She is a seasoned radio talk show guest who has appeared on over 200 shows and is often invited back. Julia’s goal is to empower patients to make the best health choices for themselves and their loved ones by teaching them about little-known but promising treatments their doctors may not know about. Julia’s articles have been featured in numerous publications, including American Medical News (AMA), Alternative & Complementary Therapies, the British Medical Journal and the Chicago Sun-Times.

Parenting an Addict: Mother Tells Her Gripping Story of Unwavering Love

Parenting an Addict: Mother Tells Her Gripping Story of Unwavering Love

(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety by any print or broadcast media outlet, or used by any means of social media sharing.)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Like a drowning woman, Christine Naman grappled for a lifeline and choked on her harsh reality: it was time to let go of denial. The tin foil, spoons and lighters she found in her daughter’s vanity weren’t the makings of a science experiment; they were drug paraphernalia. Christine’s only solace was that she hadn’t found any needles. Three days later she did.

About Natalie is Christine’s raw, compelling story of her valiant fight to help her daughter overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. It is a gripping, cautionary tale of how, in spite of a loving family and a comfortable life, a child can end up on the wrong path, meet the wrong people and get lost in the unthinkable.

About Natalie takes readers deep inside Christine’s emotional and mental turmoil as she grows into her new, unfortunate role as the parent of an addict. She steps on syringes left on the floor and wrestles one from the family dog’s mouth. She lives the nightmare of finding an unresponsive child on the floor and uses Narcan to revive her. She struggles and wins, struggles and loses, cries and rages.

She chases away a drug dealer and stays up all night waiting for her missing child to come home. She rejoices during periods of recovery and hope and is devastated during relapses. When her daughter suffers, Christine suffers right along with her. But through it all, never once, does Christine ever contemplate giving up.

At its core, About Natalie is a story of fighting for — and right alongside — the ones we love, no matter how difficult the circumstances. It’s a story of keeping the faith, battling hard and helping a child get back on the right track. It is the story of struggling, living through it all and coming out on the other, better, side.

Christine has watched a perfectly healthy daughter thrive and then succumb to the pull of substances. She has suffered the feelings of isolation, pain and humiliation that being the parent of an addict often brings. She hopes that by sharing her family’s difficult story she can bring understanding and knowledge to those who do not know the problem firsthand as well as provide comfort to those who know the nightmare of addiction all too well.

Bestselling author Christine Pisera Naman is a wife to a beautiful man named Peter and a mother to three fantastic kids named Jason, Natalie and Trevor. In her free time, she enjoys crocheting, which she does poorly; painting, again poorly; and volunteering at her local hospital, which she hopes she does well. She is the author of the Faces of Hope series of books that are now housed in the 9/11 Memorial Museum in New York City. Her other works include Caterpillar Kisses, Christmas Lights, The Novena and The Believers. About Natalie is her heart poured onto paper.

Identity of Al Capone’s Boss Unearthed When Young Man Stumbles Upon Well-Kept Family Secret

Identity of Al Capone’s Boss Unearthed When Young Man Stumbles Upon Well-Kept Family Secret

(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety by any print or broadcast media outlet, or used by any means of social media sharing.)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Joseph never suspected that he was the descendant of a Mob boss. And not just any Mob boss. Al Capone’s boss, Johnny Torrio, to be exact.

Joseph is just an average kid from an Italian middle-class family — one in which high morals and family values are instilled at every opportunity. But as he ages into his teens, he becomes inexplicably drawn to lives of the rich and famous. Fueled by a viewing of The Godfather, Jo-seph’s fascination with the Mob and the American Dream is ignited. Is wealth the barometer for success or the root of all evil? In his search for the truth about his great-uncle, Joseph discovers that the thin blue line between good and evil often becomes blurred.

The Poison of Money from Joe Torrence takes readers, for the first time ever, behind the scenes and into the personal life of real-life Chicago Mob boss Johnny Torrio, the most ob-scure figure in the history of the Mafia. But this is no conventional Mafia tale.

Instead, Torrence uses the protagonist, young Joseph, to paint a thought-provoking picture of the internal struggle many of us face between the pursuit of riches and what we’ve been taught all our lives about the evil and venom of money.

When Joseph stumbles upon a long-hidden newspaper clipping headlined “The Mafia at War” in his father’s nightstand, he uncovers a shocking reality: His great-uncle was one of the most powerful men of the 20th century, Chicago Crime Boss, Johnny Torrio. He was also Al Capone’s mentor. This life-altering revelation spurs Joseph’s quest to learn the unvar-nished truth about his family.

Joseph’s search for answers unlocks the door to let you inside the Torrio family. Johnny Tor-rio’s only blood sister, Marietta Torrio, a woman of virtue, is finally introduced to the world. Separated as toddlers, the road to the reunion of these two siblings from two completely dif-ferent worlds is rocky to say the least. Does Torrio’s “occupation” bestow unimaginable curs-es upon the family? Who is blocking this reunion?

Joseph’s fact-finding mission becomes an epic family journey that spans decades and crosses continents. There will be eye-opening revelations when he rattles the family tree, but for him, there is no turning back.

Author Joe Torrence is an accomplished businessman who some may say inherited the business acumen and street savvy of his great-uncle, Johnny Torrio. Except that there is one major difference between the two men. The author took the straight road, as he also inherited and readily embraced the morals, honesty and integrity of his grandmother, Marietta Torrio, Johnny Torrio’s only blood sister. Coincidentally, the author, like Torrio, prefers to remain in the shadows … at least for now.
