New York, NY (PRWEB) December 11, 2013

Best-selling author Colette Baron-Reids ground-breaking new paperback book and simple eight-week program, Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much (December 31, 2013), reveals a success plan for highly intuitive and empathic people who may be overweight because of their big, beautiful hearts.

Some people take on the weight of the world and the endless cares and needs of others, and their eating may be a detour away from emotional stress that needs to be managed. Based on her work with thousands of clients around the world and the cutting-edge science and research behind the mind-body connection, Colette has learned that its people’s feelings that keep them fat.

For women who feel too much, learning to love and accept themselves and to find ways to manage their emotions is the key, says Colette. Its not about the food they’re eating. They can be living on broccoli and working out like fiends, and they will still not drop the weight. They have to learn to be at peace with themselves elves and their bodies and then the weight comes off with effortless ease.


1. How to shut up noisy food. Learn to eat simply and healthfully.

2. How fear becomes fat. Learn how to focus thoughts for success.

3. Why frustration ends up on belly and thighs. Uncover new ways to find joy and relaxation.

4. How to connect to inner wisdom. Become radically honest about what your body needs and what you need.

As Risperdal Lawsuits Move Forward, Wright & Schulte LLC Learns of Bid to Keep Clinical Studies Sealed in Pennsylvania Risperdal Litigation

(PRWEB) December 11, 2013

Wright & Schulte LLC has learned that Johnson & Johnson has filed a motion in Risperdal lawsuits pending in Pennsylvania state court to keep sealed certain clinical studies pertaining to the antipsychotic drug. According to court documents filed in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, the studies were originally sealed in 2011. In its November 26th motion, Johnson & Johnson urged the Court to allow the studies to stay sealed, as they were intended to be used by researchers and regulators, not the general public. (In Re: Risperdal Litigation, Case ID. 100300296)

The firm indicates that court records show more than 200 Risperdal lawsuits are pending in Pennsylvania, dozens of which were filed on behalf of alleged victims of gynecomastia, or male breast growth. Plaintiffs in these Risperdal gynecomastia lawsuits allege the use of the drug caused them to develop breasts so large that they have had to undergo liposuction or mastectomies to remove excess breast tissue. Even after undergoing breast reduction surgery, affected patients allegedly suffered psychological and emotional distress due to the development of gynecomastia. The complaints also accuse Johnson & Johnson of concealing the risk of male breast growth from patients and the medical community.

Wright & Schulte LLC has also learned from a Bloomberg.com report of October 2012, Johnson & Johnson reached undisclosed settlements in five Risperdal gynecomastia lawsuits filed in the Pennsylvania litigation just before the cases went to trial. However, dozens of such claims remain unresolved. According to a motion filed on November 5th, plaintiffs in 77 other Risperdal gynecomastia lawsuits have asked the Court to enforce a settlement in their claims that Johnson & Johnson allegedly agreed to last January.

[Bloomberg.com/news/2012-10-04/johnson-johnson-agrees-to-settle-five-rispersal-suits.html, Bloomberg.com, October 10, 2012]

On November 4th, the U.S. Department of Justice reported that Johnson & Johnson had agreed to pay $ 2.2 billion to settle criminal and civil charges involving the off-label marketing of Risperdal and other drugs. The accord was one of the largest health care fraud settlements in U.S. history, the DOJ said. Among other things, federal prosecutors had charged that Risperdal was improperly marketed for use in children before being approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration for such purposes. They also alleged that the company concealed the risk of male breast growth.


Victims of gynecomastia (male breast growth) allegedly associated with the use of Risperdal may be eligible to file their own Risperdal lawsuit. To learn more, or to arrange for a free legal consultation with an attorney at Wright & Schulte LLC, please visit yourlegalhelp.com.

Advice from Two Pros: How to Navigate the Holidays with an Infertility Diagnosis

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 11, 2013

The holidays can be a difficult time for anyone. Our culture promotes an ideal of the perfect holiday season with unrealistic expectations, and when that experience inevitably falls short, it can lead to disappointment. For those coping with infertility, the joy of the holidays can seem even harder to attain.

The holidays are focused on family, with children at the epicenter. Those who long for the child that has not yet come can feel isolated, sad, and discouraged.

“The holidays tend to remind those dealing with infertility that family building has not gone the way they imagined,” says Dr. Ariadna Cymet Lanski, a clinical psychologist at Fertility Centers of Illinois. “Seeing your siblings and cousins with their children can remind you of what you don’t have, and that’s not easy.”

Dr. Marie Davidson, who is also a clinical psychologist at Fertility Centers of Illinois, agrees. “For couples experiencing infertility, there can be deep sense of alienation from the spirit of celebration. As a result, you may not want to participate in the usual family rituals, and you may search for ways to protect yourself from the distresses of social comparison.”

Yet the holidays and family gatherings can still be meaningful and enjoyable. Drs. Davidson and Cymet Lanski offer advice and techniques on how to navigate the emotions that surround the holidays.

Acknowledge Your Feelings

Don’t judge your own feelings; they are important and real and you have them for valid reasons. It is normal to feel envious and even angry that you are “left out”. Holding everything inside doesn’t help. It actually takes more mental energy to hold your feelings back than to express them. Allow yourself time to feel the sadness, anger, and frustration.

Reach Out

If you feel lonely or isolated, seek out support from your partner or a close friend. Talk about your feelings together. Keep in mind that men and women cope with stress in different ways. Women are more likely to express their sadness, while men tend to hold things inside. Neither way is wrong, just different. Whether it’s your partner, a friend, professional counseling, groups, or online forums, finding somewhere to talk with people who understand can help you feel less alone.

Choose the Gatherings You Attend

Discuss holiday gatherings with your partner, and decide how much celebration to participate in. If going to that family dinner will send you over the edge, dont go. Going to every minute of family gatherings isnt necessary it is important to put your needs first. Your family will move on in time.

Plan Ahead

Plan, plan, and plan ahead. Anticipation is half the battle. People have a way of asking inappropriate questions at inappropriate times. Be ready for the nosy questions and the possible “We’re pregnant” announcements. Come up with an answer in advance that feels comfortable to you.

Make Special Plans of Your Own

Plan for memorable events of your own. Host an adults-only holiday party, or plan a romantic evening out with your partner. For some, it might even mean skipping a family gathering and planning a holiday getaway of your own. For example, one couple we know spent Christmas at a quiet cabin with another couple and enjoyed hiking, playing board games and relaxing. While their families didn’t quite understand, both couples said it was a rejuvenating and memorable holiday.

Remember This is Not Forever

Remind yourself that this holiday season or the way you choose to celebrate this year is not how it will be for the rest of your life. Your fertility struggles will resolve at some point and things will change.

About the authors: Dr. Marie Davidson and Dr. Ariadna Cymet Lanski are clinical psychologists at Fertility Centers of Illinois who work specifically with individuals and couples coping with infertility. Fertility Centers of Illinois is one of the nation’s leading fertility treatment practices, providing advanced reproductive endocrinology services in the Chicago area for more than 30 years.

Bodnar Chiropractic Center and Alexandria Acupuncture Center Announce that Acupuncturist Casey Corridan Has Joined Their Alexandria, VA Healthcare Team

Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) December 10, 2013

Alexandria, VA chiropractor Dr. Brian Bodnar and the team at Bodnar Chiropractic Center have offered a range of complementary and alternative medical servicesincluding acupuncturefor the past 11 years as part of an integrated, holistic healthcare model. Bringing Casey into the practice is really a continuation of that same commitment. Shes one of the most talented acupuncturists I’ve worked with, and her own holistic approach to wellness is helping to expand treatment options for our patients.

Prior to seeing her first patient at Bodnar Chiropractic Center in early November, Ms. Corridan led a successful private practice in New York City for over 5 years. She holds a MS degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine (MSTOM) from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine and a certificate from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition as well as a BA degree in Spanish and Psychology from Suffolk University in Boston, MA.

Asked about the role acupuncture plays in the integrated care model at Bodnar Chiropractic Center, Dr. Bodnar explains, Acupuncture helps us address many different health concerns, including migraines and fibromyalgia as well as liver, spleen, and kidney problems. Its also a great fit for general wellness care. The potential health benefits of acupuncture and herbal medicines apply to a large population of patients, and more of these patients are showing an active interest in learning how traditional eastern therapies can help them.

Having access to a multidisciplinary healthcare team at Bodnar Chiropractic Center also has clear advantages for patients. Having choices is important, and working with several specialists under one roof lets us use a team approach to designing better, more comprehensive treatment plans for patients. Were able to consult with each other about a wider range of options and decide together what makes the most sense in any particular situation. This results in more directed and effective care. I think Caseys obvious skills as an acupuncturist will make her a strong contributor to that process and her energetic personality will be a great overall addition to the practice.

Ms. Corridan welcomes the opportunities shes finding in her new multi-specialty work environment. I really like the new perspective on treatment, working with new people, and getting patient referrals from the doctors and therapists. Its a wonderful atmosphere to help people and make a difference. After working for 5 years in New York City, I love the fact that the pace is a little bit slower here. I feel more relaxed and comfortable. Everyone here is great, and I love doing what I do. The energy is different and exciting. Im very glad to be a part of this family.

About Brian Bodnar, DC

Dr. Bodnar had been serving the Alexandria, VA community as a chiropractor since 1997. He holds a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic and a B.S. in Biology and Chemistry from St. Vincent College.
