New Book Tells the Truth about Lyme Disease and What Your Doctor Doesn’t Know

Overcoming Lyme Disease Book

Overcoming Lyme Disease Book

Overcoming Lyme Disease: The Truth About Lyme Disease And The Hidden Dangers Plaguing Our Bodies ruffles feathers in the medical community.

CHELSEA, MICHIGAN, USA, June 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — After suffering for years, and being left to die twice, Jennifer Heath found a solution.

But first, she had to find a diagnosis.

“Overcoming Lyme Disease: The Truth About Lyme Disease And The Hidden Dangers Plaguing Our Bodies” is her new book dedicated to her circuitous journey of medical scare after medical scare. 


“I was undiagnosed for a long time. I had numerous surgeries. After almost dying a few times, I finally found my holistic doctor,” Heath said. “I started documenting what I was going through because I couldn’t believe it.”

The doctors thought she had various forms of cancer. They thought she had osteoarthritis. They thought she had chronic pain. They thought she had a variety of conditions that weren’t the cause of her symptoms. “I had so many health scares that it all seemed surreal,” Heath said.

But once she was diagnosed with Lyme Disease, which she thinks she contracted via a bug bite several years ago, all of her strange symptoms made sense.

“I started a blog to help other people. That helped me start getting my life back. Lyme Disease is the number one pandemic, and it’s going untreated. People are suffering. They need to learn the truth about it. People need to learn how to talk to their doctor about this,” she said.

Heath’s new book, “Overcoming Lyme Disease” not only shares her story, but it is chock full of information that will help anyone struggling with undiagnosed issues talk to their doctor.

This new book is a must-read if you, or a loved one, are struggling with undiagnosed, or misdiagnosed symptoms. Overcoming Lyme Disease is available in digital and paperback versions at http://www.OvercomingLymeDisease.com/book

ONE LLP FOUNDING PARTNER RELEASES NEW BOOK

Burning Bridges: America’s 20-Year Crusade to Deport Labor Leader Harry Bridges, Releases This Week

Then it was the communist ideological deportation trials. Today it is a new ism, terrorism & Islamism, raising the same questions litigated for 20 years as Bridges fought to save his life in America.”

— Peter Afrasiabi

NEWPORT BEACH, CA, ORANGE COUNTY, June 28, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — One LLP is excited to announce the release of founding partner Peter Afrasiabi’s new book, Burning Bridges: America’s 20-Year Crusade to Deport Labor Leader Harry Bridges.

Set during the Cold War and the Red Scare, the book charts the legal and political intrigue of the four serial trials against San Francisco labor leader Harry Bridges. It assesses the prosecutors and FBI investigators, the judges and courts, and the larger-than-life defense lawyers who risked prison and disbarment in their efforts to save Harry Bridges.

Based on declassified FBI documents, including documents from J. Edgar Hoover’s vault and previously-secret National Archives documents, this is the first full account of the longest and most bitter deportation battles in U.S. history, and the twenty-year legal campaign waged by government lawyers and policumakers, in secret conjuction with private enterprise, to deport radical labor leader Harry Bridges. This is the story of the rise and fall of due process, where those who are supposed to be the very agents of due process – government prosecutors, federal investigators, legislators, and judges – bent and warped the Constitution in a means-justify-ends crusade to silence Bridges’ labor voice.

The book discusses the timely issue of deportation, and explores why such institutionalized persecution of people who offer different viewpoints can happen today in an immigration system even more politicized and beholden to Executive control than in the last century, questions that go to the heart of the American legal system and the heart of the guarantee of due process.

"Then it was the Cold War and communist ideological deportation trials as the government targeted labor leader Harry Bridges.  History repeats itself and today it is a new ism, terrorism and Islamism, raising the same questions litigated in the legal and public policy arena for 20 years as Harry Bridges fought to save his life in America,” said author Peter Afrasiabi.

Singer and Songwriter Buffy Ford Stewart to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

As a songwriter, you do it because you love it, and I’ve been doing it for 50 years.”

— Buffy Ford Stewart

NOVATO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 28, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Buffy Ford Stewart is a witness to rock and roll history. The wife of the influential folk singer and songwriter John Stewart, she recalls the day her husband wrote the classic “Daydream Believer,” one of The Monkees’ greatest hits and among the most enduring songs of the last 50 years.

“When my husband wrote ‘Daydream Believer,’ it was one of those songs,” recalls Buffy. “To him it was an unproductive day at work; All he did was write one song. He said, “Gosh, all I did today was write this song called ‘Daydream Believer.’ You just never know when a song is going to be that song. But what a song.

“All the great songs are simple with simple lyrics you can remember,” says Buffy. “The whole world knows that song. The more simple a song is, the more people it can reach. I think that’s the key to songwriting: you don’t write thinking about selling records; you write from your heart.”

Buffy and her husband shared a profound musical bond. He often referred to her as his muse. Their musical love affair lasted more than 50 years until he sadly passed away in 2008.

“The first song we sang together the blend was so perfect,” recalls Buffy. “People miss our blend. I miss singing with my husband. When you heard our voices together you could tell it was us.”

A singer and songwriter in her own right, Buffy has just released her new album Once Upon a Time.

“As a songwriter, you do it because you love it and I’ve been doing it for 50 years,” says Buffy. “A lot of my songs come from poetry, but the great songs feel like gifts. You can’t even really take credit for them.”

Buffy has recently finished writing her first children’s book: The Blanket and the Bear, a magical little story about love and the endless possibilities of love.

“I think it’s really important to live in hope and do all we can to live in love,” says Buffy.

CUTV News Radio will feature Buffy Ford Stewart in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on June 30th at 5pm EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

High Fantasy Book About Magic and Knights is a Real Win

The Magician’s Quest: The Mage Knight

High Fantasy Book About Magic and Knights is a Real Win

ALTRINCHAM, CH, UNITED KINGDOM, June 28, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Magician's Quest: The Mage Knight, is a two-part thriller of mystical fantasy liberally laced with relentless action, romance, betrayal, loyalty, treachery, hope, adventure, and thrills. A tale of a courageous and adventurous soul named Stefan, a Master Magician who has lived many lives, who makes a bizarre magical transition while inside a remote cave and wakes up as a young man.

Stefan has decided to become a Knight with enhanced magical weapons. As the story proceeds, his vitality allows him to save Princess Sophie from a forced marriage to the son of the man who killed her parents. Stefan's zest and strong-willed character, not to mention his magical powers, allows the Princess to regain her rightful place; the heir to a crown. Queen Sophie falls for and marries Stefan and they have two beautiful children.

The King of Kytan is defeated and retreats to Kytan, yet continues to spread horror to Helfing. Author Peter Krivinskas delights readers with war-torn Helfing and how Stefan courageously provides a balance to the forces of evil and destroys what is left of the invading army. The second part is as devastating as the first—the pain Stefan feels when Queen Sophie is killed by assassins hired by the defeated King of Kytan and how a tragic loss will open his heart to love Marta—the lady in waiting to his lost Queen, whom he saved along with the Princess in a war-torn Helfing.

The tale followed how Stefan defeats the wicked King of Kytan to become King of Kytan until three Kytan nobles challenge his leadership and threaten to dethrone and destroy him. But Stefan’s will and innermost determination to end injustice and inequality become his guiding tool to rule over them, conquer evil and restore peace in Kytan.

Stefan over the years becomes old and gray, and he concludes the years of his life knowing that when the time is right, he will set off to find his new place in a different country to regenerate again? Brutal, but wonderfully written along compelling characters, the book will allow you to ride with Stefan’s fantastic journey.

Study indicates robot could produce book advertisements, says veteran publisher Leslie Norins, on Analizir.com

robot holding large pen to produce book advertisement

Analysis of 100 book advertisements by major publishers revealed near-identity of major features, indicating production of book ads could be automated.

Book publishers have stifled creativity in book advertising,leading to consumer boredom and low sales.”

— Leslie Norins, MD, PhD

NAPLES, FLORIDA, USA, June 20, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The creation of book advertisements could likely be automated, says Dr. Leslie Norins, based on commonalities he found in a study of 100 book ads. His findings are published on Analizir.com (www.Analizir.com).

“Although advertising can be one of the most creative fields, it seems most current book ads have become so similar their production could probably be assigned to a robot”, he said.

Dr. Norins, a four-decade publisher of medical newsletters, planned to advertise a medical mystery novel he was publishing. He decided to examine 100 book ads from the New York Times Book Review, hoping to find the “best one”, so he could draw inspiration from its features.

To his surprise, he found there was no single ad that stood out. In fact, his detailed analysis showed all 100 book ads contained the same two components: an image of the book’s cover, which included the title and author, and some laudatory review quotes centripetally arranged around it. There was no other significant ingredient.

The only variables in the ads were the letters, font and point size of the textual items, and the color palette used.
Dr. Norins commented “This situation is ripe for a robot, as a template for inserting each common feature could be created in advance. The ad technician would only need to load the image of the book cover, and type in the reviewer quotes. Then select from a short list of options the font and point size of type, the color palette, and the layout.”

But even though robotic production of ads seems doable, Dr. Norins questioned whether speeding up “more of the same” ads would help sell more books. He said, “The sameness which has permeated book ads has created boredom."

Dr. Norins believes book ad agencies can be creative, but that they are hindered by the attitudes of book publishers, who are comfortable with the status quo and afraid of taking marketing risks.

Leslie Norins, M.D, Ph.D., has been a leading publisher of medical newsletters for over 40 years. Analizir.com is an independent website of analysis and commentary, and is a unit of Medvostat LLC.

Five Father's Day Tips For Special Needs Dads

Author Deanna Picon Offers Ways To Help Dads Throughout The Year

Fathering a special needs child requires inner strength, patience and extraordinary love for one's son or daughter. So, it's important to acknowledge those who give so much of themselves.”

— Deanna Picon

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 17, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Raising a child with a disability, while balancing work and family responsibilities is no easy task for even the most devoted parent.

“Fathering a special needs child requires inner strength, patience and extraordinary love for one’s son or daughter. Often times, these dedicated dads are overlooked for their contributions,” said Deanna Picon, founder of Your Autism Coach, LLC and author of The Autism Parents’ Guide To Reclaiming Your Life (http://www.amazon.com/dp/1497581222). “So, on this special day, let’s acknowledge those who give so much of themselves to their families.”

Fathers can apply these simple tips to have a wonderful Father’s Day and throughout the year.

● Manage your health. It’s important to take care of yourself, especially with everything on your plate. Get at least six hours of sleep, make time to eat properly and exercise. Hitting the gym is an effective way to work off stress and stay fit. A simple walk around the neighborhood can clear your mind.

● Stay true to yourself. Don’t allow your child’s disability to define you. Like any parent, much of your life is going to be centered on your children, but that doesn’t mean you should completely abandon the hobbies, events and activities you enjoy doing. Keep in touch with friends and family. Call for a quick chat or send a friendly text. Invite the guys over to watch the game or for a cookout.

● Give yourself permission to enjoy. Don’t feel guilty for having a good time, even if it’s only once in a while. Ask a family member or close friend to watch your child for a few hours, so you can go to the billiards hall to shoot some pool with your buddies. Go on a fishing trip. Attend an auto show. It will be beneficial to unload the weight of your responsibilities for a short time.

● Accept unspoken praise and appreciation. Your spouse or partner may be too overwhelmed in the midst of all the challenges the two of you face to tell you how much they care. Your special needs child may be unable to properly communicate how grateful they are that you accept and love them. Nevertheless, know that your child and family appreciate you and the difference you make in their lives.

● Take a bow! You stepped up and accepted the challenges of raising a child with special needs. Because of your determination and advocacy, your son or daughter will have a better life. That’s worth patting yourself on the back about. And don’t forget to reward yourself. Do something nice, no matter how small. Buy tools for your workshop or new, athletic clothes to work out in.

Your Autism Coach, LLC provides personalized guidance, comprehensive support programs and seminars that address the issues and concerns of parents of special needs children. Now on Twitter (@yourautismcoach), look for the latest parenting tips and advice from Deanna Picon. She shows parents how to overcome the challenges of raising a child with special needs, while building a rewarding life for themselves. Deanna is the recipient of the 2015 “Top Life Coach Writer” Award from Autism Parenting Magazine.
