    From Stress to Success with Best Selling Author Dr. Alexander Loyd

    in Self Help

    Science has proven that stress is the primary source of virtually every problem or lack of happiness, whether it be physical, spiritual, emotional, or circumstantial. People usually set goals for themselves based on external circumstances, which makes them bound to fail due to stress.


    Many self-help programs ask us to tap into our willpower and use the power of positive thinking. Today's special guest, Dr. Alexander Loyd, says that this method is actually a recipe for failure. That is why 97 percent of self-help programs fail.


    Dr. Loyd believes that we need to understand how fear and love work in our bodies to combat stress. In his new book, Beyond Willpower: From Stress to Success in 40 Days, Dr. Loyd offers a revolutionary 40 day holistic program based on more than 25 years of clinical experience. His program is rooted in science, ancient wisdom, and proven therapeutic techniques that remove success sabotaging obstacles.


    Alexander Loyd has a Ph.D in psychology and an N.D. in naturopathic medicine. He is also the author of the international bestselling book, The Healing Code. His 12 year search for a cure for his wife's depression led to the discovery in 2001 of The Healing Code's system, to heal the source of virtually any physical, emotional, success, or relational issue. Since then his private practice has become the largest of its kind in the world.

    Stronger Together talks with Lamont Carey, Founder/CEO of Contact Visits

    in Christianity

    "Before the Transition is the Transformation...Improving the lives of ex-offenders and at-risk youth"


    Valerie and Rev. Ray talk with Mr. Lamont Carey, Founder and Executive Director of Contact Visits, a nonprofit organization assisting at-risk youth and ex-offenders.


    Contact Visits was founded by Lamont Carey on June 7, 2001.  The vision to form this company was birthed while Lamont was serving his own multi-year prison term. When preparing for release, Mr. Carey took classes in business management and non-profit management, marketing, accounting, finance, and other business-related topics. Additionally, he was offered stress and anger management, decision- making, substance abuse prevention, life skills, and other courses related to preparing to re-enter society that he felt were not effective.


    Mr. Carey’s first responsibility with Contact Visits was to develop more effective programs to address the needs and issues surrounding soon-to-be released felons, ex-convicts, and troubled youth. He is also responsible for the daily management of all operations, finding locations for all three facilities, hiring and managing staff, grant writing and fundraising, bookkeeping, contract management, public relations, interaction with federal and local government agencies as well as other non-profit service providers, budgeting, sourcing of training and educational personnel, creation of curriculum programs, and marketing.
