    The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss: Russell Friedman

    in Psychology

    The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss: Russell Friedman


    Your relationship with your pet is special--it's a bond that is very different than those that human beings share with each other. When a beloved pet passes away, people often resort to incorrect mechanisms to deal with the grief, such as trying to move too quickly past the  loss dismissing the real impact), or even attempting to replace the pet immediately. However, these are merely two myths out of six that the authors discuss and dismantle in The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss. Based on the authors' Grief Recovery Method®, this book  addresses how losing a pet is different from losing a human loved one, and ultimately, how to move on with life.

    Children and Pet Loss- How To Tell Children About the Death of a Family Pet

    in Pets

    Children handle pet death rather easily.  It is the adult's reactions and actions that can leave a scar of misunderstanding.  Most kids feel as strongly over the loss of the pet as adults do, but look to the adults in their lives to decide how to respond to the loss.  


    Many adults feel it is best to protect children from the upsetting truth of what has happened to their pet and so they lie!  They pretend the pet "ran away" or perhaps "moved to the country."  Without telling children the truth, it will cause them more pain and the potential for guilty feelings for not taking better care of their pet.


    Were you aware that how a child hears about the first death in his life, usually a pet or grandparent, can color his future  perspecive on death? Please see this great kids book; http://www.amazon.com/Miss-You-Pets-Heaven-Parent-ebook/dp/B00J0D707Y/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1416880152&sr=1-1&keywords=I+miss+you%3A+all+pets+go+to+heaven  You will be glad you did.


    Join us today by calling in at 917-889-8810 and sharing your story of how you were told as a child that your beloved pet had died.  We are a community of caring pet parents who want to share with you.

    Fat-Me-Not Weight Loss Diet of the Future with Dr. Sandeep Grewal

    in Spirituality

    What is the balanced approach to weight management? 


    This balanced approach to weight management is rooted in the sciences of the human mind and body. Utilizing clinical studies in physiology as well as psychology has helped her better understand the instinctive patterns that cause people to fail at weight loss. “Patterns will undermine a diet plan in no time,” Grewal explains. “Driving passed the same fast food restaurant on your way to work everyday can sabotage your plans in the first week. You have to recognize those type patterns in order to avoid them.” You need a plan for long-term weight loss. “But that doesn’t mean slow weight loss; It only means effective weight loss that lasts.”


    The authors of Fat-Me-Not: Weight Loss Diet of The Future, Dr. Myo M Nwe and Dr. Sandeep Grewal have finally connected the advances in weight-loss science and brought that knowledge from the annals of research journals to your doorstep in a simplified, easy-read, fun, and entertaining way. Why try to lose weight the old way when powerful new research, stuck in scientific journals until now, can make it easier, simpler, and safer for you to shed those pounds? 


    In the Fat-Me-Not book you will discover: 



    How bacteria in our gut can hack into our nervous system and change what we crave and what we eat
    How your body regulates your weight and how you can use it to your advantage
    Why, when you diet and lose weight, you gain back even more pounds than before
    If you are trapped in the FAT-ME-YES cycle and how to get out of it
    Why today’s diets do not sustain weight loss and why the diet of the future is an easier, simpler, and safer way to lose weight
    Read the real scientific studies in the form of fun-to-read “Rat Stories”and learn from them
