Little Patient Big Doctor
One Mothers Journey
Haleh Rabizadeh Resnick
WOW is all I can say after reading this book and learning
about all this mom went through with her husband and the
doctors she had to deal with on a daily basis to help her
children become better as they where both sick one with
allergies and one with eczema.
I had a daughter who was ADHD and I went one many fights
with our doctors as well as they would want to put her on medicine
that in the long run would have hurt her.
So I too went the all natural route and I used  Fish Oil as well and I
can tell you it worked.
Doctors are good but they make mistakes as my daughter had a ear
infection and the doctor gave her Amocillyn and I tried to tell him she
was immune to it but he did not listen and it caused her ear drums to
almost burst.
So Please if you have doubts about the medical care you are getting
ask questions and keep asking as she did as it kept her son from losing
her hearing.
I also applaud her for running away as there is many days I think about
doing this but have not had the courage.
So Please take the time and read this book as it will make you stop and
think and if you know of someone with a child who is sick Please ask them
to check into this I think it can answer some of there questions.
1) How many children do you have? 

Five- between the ages of 3 ½ and 12.  My oldest is a girl and I have four sons.

2) Are there things wrong with the other children?

My children are all healthy and I believe that’s it’s due to the attitude and approach I describe in Little Patient Big Doctor. 

3) How would you have handled everything if you did not
have all the support you had?

I think that support is essential.  As I share in my book, we all need to find support whether it’s through friends, family or professional organizations.  Without support, I don’t think that we would be in the same place.

4) If there is one thing you would share with your readers
that is not included in the book what would it be?

One of the sections that did not make the final version of the book was how often I set off the fire alarm while cooking.   The poor fire department, they probably know the route to my house by heart.

5) Would you ever write another book and if so about what?

I’ve thought about compiling the experiences that my readers are sharing with me into another book.  So many people have been touched by my story that I would like to share that in return to continue helping others.

6) What is the one thing you would tell anyone who is looking
in to alternative medicine for there family?

Remember, you’re now the scientist- keep track to make sure what you do is working and keep your doctor informed so that you don’t inadvertently venture into an area that is known to be harmful.  In the book, in addition to my story, I share tips on looking into alternative treatments and working with your doctor more effectively.
7) Are your children still using the fish oil and are you?

When my children were young, they all took the fish oil- I called it “Special Candy”.  Now that they know it’s not candy, some of them are more resistant than others.

8) Can you tell if it is making a difference?

I’ve always noticed a difference as I’ve shared in Little Patient Big Doctor.

9) Are you still drinking the juices and if so are you still having
problems with your stomach?

My stomach issues all left me as my stress level came down.  I do have vegetable juices every once in a while. 

10) How is your husband dealing with all of this? Is there one
thing you wish he would help more with?

My husband grew up very differently than me and would’ve been more comfortable strictly following doctors orders. But he is supportive because he’s seen results in our experience with our children.

This can be a challenging area- if a couple disagrees on the type of treatment for their children decision-making is much harder.   One reason I wrote the book was to reach out to people who come from a different mind frame and share with them our experience in hope of making it easier for families to try different things. 

11) How does this affect his job?

Fortunately, his profession allows him flex hours so when I need his help, he can pitch in.  Also, I stopped working to be with the kids and so I handle all the doctors appointments.

12) Are your mom and dad still helping by doing your
shopping and making the juices?

I think we burned them out.  Now I try to help out with my mom’s shopping.

13) How old are the children now and have they grown
out of the issues they where having?

Ethan is now 7 still allergic to many things- but he is healthy and thriving.  Alex is almost 4 and doing wonderfully with his speech.

14) Out of all you dealt with and learned what is the one
thing you think that helped you the most?

Trusting your gut.  One of my goals in writing this book is to inspire everyone to trust themselves- and fortunately I hear from my readers that they are inspired to do just that.

15) Since your book has been published has anyone approached
you to let you know it has made a difference in your life?

This is the most satisfying aspect.  The book touches a chord in every reader.  I receive e-mails and calls all the time of people who have gained from reading Little Patient Big Doctor. Some tell me that it has inspired them to advocate in all areas of their life.  Some are going for second opinions for the first time.  Some have changed their approach to their health and are thriving.

Cowboy's Touch
Denise Hunter
What was your childhood/teenage dream??
Mine was to always marry a cowboy.
Was I able to do this no but it does not stop me
from wishing I still had one.
So how do I get around this?
I read romance books with cowboys like
Denise Hunters Cowboy's Touch.
The nice part of it is that she is a Christian Author.
The storyline will make you laugh and c
which is not always easy to find so it makes me want to
find even more of her books to read.
I liked the fact that the story line draws you in.
Its one of those books you do not want to put down.

Tour Date: April 12th

Book Title & Author: A Cowboy's Touch by Denise Hunter

Short Bio & Author Website: Denise lives in Indiana with her husband Kevin and their three sons. In 1996, Denise began her first book, a Christian romance novel, writing while her children napped. Two years later it was published, and she's been writing ever since. Her books often contain a strong romantic element, and her husband Kevin says he provides all her romantic material, but Denise insists a good imagination helps too!

Short Book Description: Wade's ranch home needs a woman's touch. Abigail's life needs a cowboy's touch.

Four years ago, rodeo celebrity Wade Ryan gave up his identity to protect his daughter. Now, settled on a ranch in Big Sky Country, he lives in obscurity, his heart guarded by a high, thick fence.

Abigail Jones isn't sure how she went from big-city columnist to small-town nanny, but her new charge is growing on her, to say nothing of her ruggedly handsome boss. Love blossoms between Abigail and Wade--despite her better judgment. Will the secrets she brought with her to Moose Creek, Montana separate her from the cowboy who finally captured her heart?

Read an Excerpt!

“It was one of the most magical moments of my life  The following Monday I went back to my day job and a co-worker walked up to me and said, “Congratulations!  You are so lucky to be able to get up in front of an audience and speak like that.
Lucky?  I wanted to explode.  Well meaning, she saw the end result.  She did not see the beginning.  So many people think you are born funny or not….that you are born a great speaker or not.  There is that one percent that are.  I hate them too!  For the rest of us, it is a process.”
“It was disheartening.  Even as I raised this issue with our senior leadership, no one was prepared to listen.  I felt that remaining with this company was compromising my integrity.  Yes, I could continue to work there but was that simply selling my soul for money???”
“The first and greatest hurdle was to allow myself to say, “I am a writer.”  It took some courage.  Who was I to write a book?  People study or write articles for years before they dare.  They enter hundreds of contests for short stories and enroll in workshops and writers groups.  I skipped all that.  I didn’t have time.  But I did keep in mind what those brilliant Greeks said 2500 years ago,
Be what you wish to seem.”
“This is madness,” I muttered into my helmet.  I raced down a dirt road, going 90 plus miles per hours, and at 53 years of age, found myself competing with people 30 years younger.  The bike and I roared through the desert, a rooster tail of dust in our wake. 40 miles previously, I took a trip over the handlebars as the front wheel dug into some silt at 50 miles per hour and catapulted me to the ground.  Now I was riding with a broken collarbone.
“He asked if I could sing and if I knew Marilyn’s songs.  I said yes to both and started to list which of her songs I knew.  He asked me to sing, “I Wanna Be Loved By You,” so I did.  By now, I wasn’t even nervous.  I was comfortable singing a capella.  I had never really sang any other way.  I had never even sang outside of the shower.”
