FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

We Need To Emotionally Cleanse The Brain And Reclaim Our Happiness Without The Use Of Soft Addictions

Stress is turning many of us into addicts! We’re hooked on the soft addictions – streaming video binges, endless internet surfing, endless texting, or internet shopping. We can’t stop . . . until now! The Stress Overload Solution by Laurel Mellin, Ph.D., a New York Times bestselling author, UCSF professor and the founder of Emotional Brain Training (EBT) maps out simple tools to shut off addictions, whether they are work addictions, mood addictions, love addictions or habit. It’s the latest neuroscience, and the technique is so powerful, readers can use it for any unwanted urge, drive, or compulsion.

Dr. Mellin discovered a simple tool that switches off addictive wires in the emotional brain. You can use it two ways: 1) when you have that feeling like a wire was triggered in your brain and you’re going to take some unhealthy action whether you want to or not, use the tool. In 2 to 4 minutes, your emotional brain switches it off. The craving stops. You feel elated because you are in control again! And 2), for those particularly stubborn wires, use the same in a more reflective way. Get comfortable with it, understand its origin (perhaps your mother gave it to you?), and then use the same tool to zap it. It’s a great feeling, because when you have switched off that wire enough, you are in complete control. Inner conflict stops. You feel so secure, pleasured, comforted and safe that you’d rather go for a walk, dance and sing or bring our your creative, playful self – because you are no longer an addict!

The method is so powerful that you will use it for the rest of your life. In addition to switching off the drive for bad habits it can also be used on mood habits to stop you worrying yourself sick, flying into a rage or sinking into numbness and overthinking. The same goes for love addictions. Rewire your drive to merge or distance, rescue or people please, isolate or judge. These are just wires that can be switched off. What about work? They are wires too because work brings out our issues with co-workers, procrastination, fearing failure, dreading success and more.

Everyone who is stressed, driven or overwhelmed needs The Stress Overload Solution: A Proven, Neuroscience Method for Optimal Well-being from Dr. Laurel Mellin. The emotional tools are like self-therapy, but with privacy and confidentiality. YOU are in charge!

In this 30-day program, Dr. Mellin expertly explains her Emotional Brain Training (EBT) method, which, once mastered, will give you the tools you need to deactivate the wires in your brain that cause stress and activate wires that promote optimal well-being in two to four minutes. This book is a complete how-to manual for freedom from addictions.

We were born to create joy in our life and fulfill our purpose, not be limited by soft addictions, urges, drives and compulsions caused by stress overload. Create freedom in your life and switch off these issues with the tools in this book. Gain new power to control quality of life!

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.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Unresolved Trauma And Toxic Stress Seep Into The Way We Partner, Parent, Labor And Love

This groundbreaking new book by Dr. Tian Dayton offers a path to healing for the
millions of people who grew up with addiction, trauma, or adverse childhood experiences (ACEs).

Toxic stress and trauma are gaining a rightful place in our country’s national health agenda. Almost two-thirds of people reported at least one adverse childhood event (ACE), and more than one in five reported three or more. When trauma remains unresolved, it can emerge in adulthood as co-addictions, depression, anxiety, PTSD, intimacy issues, and even physical illnesses.

In The Soulful Journey of Recovery, esteemed clinician Tian Dayton offers a way out, drawing on cutting-edge neuroscience, her decades of work as a therapist, and her personal experience as a child growing up in an addicted household. With exercises, journaling prompts, and astute advice from the heart and the trenches of psycho-therapy, Dr. Dayton reveals both a path and a plan to heal.

Discover:

• Why there’s no “normal” for anyone with unresolved trauma—and how to take the first steps to recover.
• The hidden connection between trauma and addictions—and what you can do if you or someone you love is numbing their pain.
• How childhood traumas can make us physically sick as adults.
• How to tell if someone is “emotionally dyslexic”—with ways to build emotional sobriety and emotional literacy.
• Why our biggest triggers can become treasures that lead to a path of healing.

It’s never too late to have a happy childhood. Learn how to change the script with The Soulful Journey of Recovery.

From the Foreword by Gary Seidler:

For those who have grown up in a family with addiction, mental illness, or other adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), the heartache and pain doesn’t end when they grow up and leave home. The legacy can last a lifetime and spread to generations unseen. In The Soulful Journey of Recovery, Dr. Tian Dayton details an action plan for readers based on the best research of the past two decades. Herself an adult child of an alcoholic, Dr. Dayton has devoted her life’s work to help others free themselves from the trauma they thought they had left behind; triggered pain and anger from the past that can derail the present or make relationships unnecessarily stressful. Powerful, focused exercises and meditations will put readers in touch with their creative, spontaneous side, leading to positive life changes. A journey of self discovery, the book presents hope circuits of positive psychology, showing readers how to take themselves from a place of pain to one of presence. Readers will discover that recovery is a self-affirming life adventure, and the kindest and best thing they can do for themselves and future generations.

Groundbreaking Research Finds Dyslexia And Related Disorders Are Medically Treatable, And Dramatic Improvement Is Possible—Even Partially For Autism/ASD

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Groundbreaking Research Finds Dyslexia And Related Disorders Are Medically Treatable, And Dramatic Improvement Is Possible—Even Partially For Autism/ASD

For more than 50 years, world-renowned clinical researcher Dr. Harold N. Levinson has trained his attention on understanding and treating dyslexia’s hidden origins. He came to view dyslexia as not just a “pure” reading comprehension disorder characterized by reversals, but rather a highly complex syndrome consisting of many and varied symptoms. And he has successfully treated more than 35,000 dyslexics, bringing a much needed depth of understanding, compassion and real help to those failing to cope with the daily challenges presented by this previously misunderstood and often devastating impairment. As a result, bright but dumb-feeling dyslexics—as well as those with related disorders—have been enabled to rapidly feel smarter and smarter.

How did he do it?

His latest book, Feeling Smarter and Smarter—Discovering the Inner-ear Origins and Treatment for Dyslexia/LD, ADD/ADHD and Phobias/Anxiety, explains his groundbreaking findings and his effective treatment process in easy-to-understand language. At the core of his research is his discovery that dyslexia—really its complex syndrome—is caused by one treatable signal-tuning dysfunction within the inner-ear and its supercomputing cerebellum.

In other words, when “dizzy” or scrambled signals adversely affect the functioning of multiple normal brain processors, corresponding difficulties may arise with:

· reading, writing, spelling, math, memory, speech, direction and time
· grammar, concentration/activity-level, balance and coordination
· headaches, nausea, dizziness, ringing ears and motion-sickness
· frustration levels and feeling dumb, ugly, klutzy, phobic and depressed
· impulsivity, cutting class, dropping out of school and substance abuse
· bullying and being bullied as well as anger and social interactions
· becoming emotionally traumatized and scarred dysfunctional adults

Dr. Levinson shares the stories and photos of real patients, young and old, as they reveal both their reading and non-reading symptoms and their rapid, dramatic improvements after using simple and safe inner-ear enhancing medications and nutrients.

Feeling Smarter and Smarter is replete with discoveries and solutions—many that are both surprising and fascinating. For all dyslexics as well as their caring families, teachers and healers, Dr. Levinson’s inspiring work is nothing short of life-changing.

Finally, by similarly treating the coexisting signal-scrambling demon that Dr. Levinson found present in those with major brain processing disorders like Autism or ASD, traumatic brain injury, etc., they too can be helped—not cured. So as Dr. Levinson concludes, “The best is yet to come!”

Harold N. Levinson, MD is a world-renowned psychiatrist and neurologist credited with bringing about a dramatic breakthrough in the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of dyslexia and its related syndromes. His work has resulted in the development of a unique medical-educational therapeutic approach, validated by hundreds of referenced independent research publications. In addition, his new insights and scientific instruments can be used to screen for this disorder before academic symptoms arise—and even prevent their surfacing.

His many scientific papers have appeared in medical and educational journals, and have been reviewed by the New York Times, Science, Time and Smithsonian. He has also appeared on a number of television programs in the U.S. and the United Kingdom, including The Today Show, Larry King Live and Donahue.

Formerly Associate Professor of Psychiatry at NYU Medical Center, Dr. Levinson is currently the Director of the Levinson Medical Center for Learning Disabilities in Great Neck, New York. He has written eight books, including The Discovery of Cerebellar-Vestibular Syndromes and Therapies, A Solution to the Riddle – Dyslexia, a reprinting of his 1980 medical text heralded as “decades ahead of its time” and “a new millennium work.” Feeling Smarter and Smarter is a dramatically updated sequel to his bestseller, Smart But Feeling Dumb.

Are You Raising Or Teaching A Bully?
This enlightening children’s book shows that the key to creating a generation of
kinder, more resilient kids is to stop the first bully they encounter—THEMSELVES!

Words have power. The words others say to us can either lift us as high as the clouds, or drop us down like a crashing plane. But what about the words we tell ourselves? What about that constantly running inner voice? In truth, what we say to ourselves impacts us even more than what others say to us.

“Pigtails are for babies!” she snarled at me. Her words hurt more than the time I broke my arm. I quickly untied my hair. I wore my hair down for the rest of the school year.

That was the first time I met the Big Bad Bully … She called me names like “fatty,” “piglet” and “ugly.” Things are worse now that I am in the 6th grade. Even when I don’t see her, I can always hear the whispers, the giggles, and the growls.

So goes the mesmerizing story of a young girl who grows up with a voice that ridicules and demeans her. In the end, we discover that her tormentor is staring back at her every day in the mirror.

Featuring stunning artwork–and small enough to fit in a backpack–this profound book is a tool for engaging children, young adolescents, parents, and caring adults about the impressions they make on themselves with their thoughts and self-talk. Included are powerful workbook exercises and resources for implementing healthy self-esteem habits that can last a lifetime.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Crisis Of Purpose Hinders Humankind’s Efforts To Resolve World’s Biggest Challenges

The defining crisis of our time isn’t growing authoritarian regimes, economic uncertainty or even climate change. It is a crisis of purpose. Our hope for the future will ultimately depend on how we best conceive of progress if our actions are to result in real human advancement.

In Hope and the Future: Confronting Today’s Crisis of Purpose, the first of a three-part series, Dr. Charles M. Johnston contends that much of civilization lacks a narrative, a compelling human story that can propel us forward. The challenges we face require that we think, act and relate in new ways, he says, and the critical questions before us require that we “grow up” as a species in order to deal with these challenges effectively.

Among the critical questions the book tackles are: How do we best ensure a safe human future in a world filled with weapons of mass destruction? How do we address inevitable environmental catastrophes? How do we make love endure in the future with gender roles in flux today? How will we deal with important challenges that require global cooperation, such as terrorism and the need for a stable economic infrastructure? How do we make moral choices, given their growing complexity and the weakening of cultural guideposts? And finally, how do we best determine if our actions result in real human advancement?

Dr. Johnston’s book distills 30 years of work by the Institute for Creative Development, a Seattle-based, non-partisan think tank and center for leadership training. It introduces the “creative systems” concept of cultural maturity and provides a compelling guiding story for going forward.

Author Charles M. Johnston is also a psychiatrist and futurist, and is best known for founding and directing the ICD and is the originator of Creative Systems Theory, a comprehensive framework for understanding purpose and change in human systems. He is the author of 10 books and numerous articles on the future and how we can best prepare to meet it.

Drugs, Money And Cancer Challenge Ultimately Transform Texas Woman

Amy Herrig loves dogs, the Dallas Cowboys, her husband and, of course, her family. You might find her cooking up a gourmet meal, reading a good book or discussing the latest movie she’s seen. She’s as American as apple pie, and one would assume that her life has been a series of successes. Except it hasn’t.

In her memoir No More Dodging Bullets, Herrig recounts her struggle with heroin addiction during her teenage years and, as an adult, an addiction to money. She and her father were the successful owners of a number of businesses, raking in the profits and enjoying all that it could buy when the government slapped them with a lawsuit that threatened to strip them of everything, including their freedom. During that four-year battle, she was served with another notice: she had breast cancer.

Her struggles, she says, have served to provide her with a new perspective and have deepened her faith. “All the bullets I’ve dodged and all the things that have happened made me realize how lucky I am to be alive,” she says.

Today, Herrig volunteers regularly and has founded the nonprofit, Hopeful Tuesdays, to assist the homeless in her community. She and her family enjoy spending time in Alaska, helping to run the family business there and spending time hiking and fishing. A self-professed foodie, she’s frequently hosting dinner parties and delving into meaningful conversations with her close circle of friends.
