Publicist Roberta Stein of Skokie, IL, writes this Help This Hound question:
Sandi Berger, my new client, wrote a new book, “Fitnevision: Create Your Lifestyle Vision Starting From The Inside Out.”
“At her website, , and in her book, Sandi shares the story that healed her and led to her becoming a personal trainer and life coach in Chicago.
“In the 1970s, Sandi experienced both depression and crippling panic attacks. The doctor she sought help from advised her to take medicine in the benzodiazepan family, such as Valium or Xanax. She knew these drugs were potentially addicting and felt that if she took them, she would be exchanging one problem for another. She decided to try her own self-styled cure….adopting a lifestyle of exercise and positive thinking. These practices DID cure Sandi.
“In her book, she tells readers how they too can find a healthy, stress-free life. Because there is a lot of documentation, both on and offline, that backs up Sandi’s findings, I have thought of finding a psychotherapist, to be interviewed with Sandi, attesting to the validity of the message in her book.
“But I’m wondering if your Hounds can think of additional ways to promote this new book. I welcome their ideas. Thanks, in advance, for any help you can send my way.”
