Author Heads To Stardust in Las Vegas to Say Goodbye

NewswireToday - /newswire/ - Daphne, AL, United States, 09/21/2006 - Rayna
Gangi, author of, "Forget The Cures, Find The Cause," begins her book signing
tour at her favorite hotel on the strip.

Rayna Gangi has loved the Stardust hotel and casino since her first visit in 1968,
and now she kicks off her book signing tour for “Forget The Cures, Find The
Cause,” in the lobby of her favorite Vegas hot spot.

“The Stardust as we know it will be gone in November,” says Gangi. “It was my
home away from home while I was there for an eight month stay, and it’s always
been my favorite place on the strip.”

“Forget The Cures, Find The Cause,” has nothing to do with gambling, but instead
is a book that helps readers get to the bottom of their aches, pains, and illnesses
by educating them about their body, mind, and spirit.

“No so-called ‘miracle’ cures or phony promises,” says Gangi. “This book dispels
the myths, exposes the intentions of people like Troudeau, awakens the reader to
Western Medicine tradition, and opens the seven keys to balanced health. We
have to get away from quick-fixes and band-aid philosophy,” she says. "Western
medicine treats the symptoms with man-made potions. The body is smarter than
that. Add your mind and spirit to the equation and you are on your way to
balanced health."

Gangi will be attending the Chairman’s Club final dinner at the Stardust on
October 7 and will be available for book signings throughout the weekend. The
Chairman's Club is an elite group who have proven to be loyal customers and
players at the Stardust.

“It’s a sad day for those of us who have been treated so well by the Stardust, but I’
m sure the new Echelon will be just as friendly and become another home for
many of us,” she says.

Gangi is also the author of “Mary Jemison, White Woman of the Seneca.”

Gangi, author of "Forget The Cures, Find The Cause," spoke to reporters about
health care in Alabama, Florida, Nevada, and New York.

“Cures is a funny word.” Rayna Gangi, author of “Forget The Cures, Find The
Cause,” spoke to reporters from Alabama, Florida, Nevada, and New York, on
Wednesday, just prior to the kick-off of her book tour in those states.

“The anagram for cures,” she said, “is curse, and that’s what many people believe
is happening to them in our health care system. I don’t agree with Kevin Troudeau’
s ethics, but I do agree that something has to be done about health care, including
the pharmaceutical and insurance companies.”

America is undergoing a dramatic shift in healthcare. Although the changes are
unsettling, and will cause dislocations in our economy, the overall trends are
positive and could help us all be healthier and wealthier.

“Doctors will have no choice but to use pieces and parts of alternative medicine in
what they do day-to-day with patients, says Gangi. “The customer is always right,
as they say, and the customer definitely wants a choice, not a “curse.” We should
forget the cures. We need, instead, to focus on the cause. This also helps people
to take charge of their own health. When we do the work to find the cause of any
illness or disease, the symptoms will disappear, and the cures will be

Although doctors are increasingly using alternative medicine in their own practice,
and hiring alternative practitioners to work in their offices, the independent
alternative practitioner will still be the rule, not the exception. There are too many
alternative practitioners (massage therapists, chiropractors, yoga instructors, etc.)
for doctors to absorb everyone. And people will want a choice. A Western medical
experience, or perhaps an alternative medicine experience. Of course the best
could be a combination of both.

Gangi says, “Nurses are leading the way. They have a better understanding of the
relationship necessary with patients, and are more willing to find the best path to
recovery, including less expensive alternative therapies. Health insurance costs
will be lowered or reduced, and pharmaceutical companies will no longer be able
to make huge profits by exploiting fear.”

“Forget The Cures, Find The Cause,” is being released in hardcover on October 1.

Compelling Podcast Skyrocketing New Book Sales

Gangi's Podcast on Holistic Health and related mind, body, spirit topics is helping
to skyrocket sales of her new book "Forget The cures, Find The Cause."

Known internationally for her internet radio broadcasts and her popular weekly
podcasts, Rayna Gangi has captured a global market for her holistic health
wisdom and her new book, "Forget The Cures, Find The Cause." A medical
intuitive and therapist with forty years experience, Gangi simplifies the human
body, mind and spirit and carries her listeners on journeys that incorporate a
Native American perspective. "She can predict hurricane paths using marine
animal behavior, or just get you going in the morning with her calming, but
authoritative style."

Forget The Cures, Find The Cause challenges Trudeau's "miracle cures" and
exposes the history of medicine while educating readers and listeners in taking
charge of their own health.

Gangi's twice-a-week podcast, "The holistic health hotline with Rayna G" covers
topics about children's health, relationships, the body, disease, weather and
politics and often includes an almost poetic guidance on balancing our lives and
our energy. She boasts a top ten rating and a subscribership of nearly 250,000
which is growing daily by three to four percent.

"Kevin Trudeau and the medical establishment may be threatened by Gangi's
truth," says one listener. "She speaks from forty years of experience and does it
with heart and passion."

"I encourage my children to listen to Rayna's podcasts," another listener states.

And still another has posted the comment, "I've ordered sixteen books to give to
friends and hope you'll sign them."

Health Consult Challenges Troudeau in Book – 'Forget The Cures, Find The

NewswireToday - /newswire/ - Daphne, AL, United States, 07/17/2006 - Rayna
Gangi, Holistic Health consultant, teacher, and internet talk show host, takes
readers on a combined journey of mind, body, and spirit through the seven keys
of balanced health.

The passionate and compelling, "Forget The Cures, Find The Cause," by Rayna
Gangi, hit the internet and podcast airwaves prior to its hardcover release and has
been touted the “most truthful” and “best yet” book on holistic and alternative
health. Combining the mind, body, and spirit with a Native American approach,
Gangi intrigues the reader with medical facts and history while weaving a poetic
and profound journey through all aspects of health and balance.

“You’ll use it as a workbook, a textbook, and carry it with you as an every day
read,” says Laurie Azzarella. Azzarella is one of nine certified instructors for the
International Institute of Reflexology in St. Petersburg, Florida. “You’ll read it more
than once and hang on every word.”
“I wanted to challenge the books that offer miracle cures and empty hope,” says
Gangi. “I also wanted readers to know that balanced health is achievable, but
takes more than a handful of vitamins and a yoga class.” Gangi is well-known as
“Rayna G.” on her popular internet radio broadcast and her podcasts heard
worldwide. Known as a medical intuitive and trained in Earth Medicine, Gangi has
more than thirty years experience in the various modalities that encopass holistic
health. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of SUNY at Buffalo, Gangi is also a Vietnam-era
veteran of the Marine Corps, a multi-state licensed massage therapist and
reflexologist, and has offices in Florida, Alabama, New York and Nevada.

She has also authored the still-popular “Mary Jemison, White Woman of the
Seneca,” an historical novel published through Clearlight books in Santa Fe, New
Mexico now in its fifth printing.

Read This Book - Cover To Cover
Mind, body, and spirit presented in a way that only Gangi seems able to do. If
you've read Troudeau or Chopra or Myss, you really need to read this.

A reviewer, a teacher and reader, 09/15/2006  
Don't let anyone fool you
The book looked small, but when I started reading it, I realized that every page was
packed with information and wisdom. Her style is so easy to read, and her wisdom
profound. None of the other so-called 'gurus' come close to this. Don't be fooled
by the cover or the apparent size. This book is HUGE. It covers western medicine
'myths', massage, reflexology, iridology, food, name it, and does it
with compassion, heart, and profound knowledge.

A reviewer (, A reviewer, 09/10/2006  
Look for the Cause
Stop treating the symptoms and treat the cause. It sounds like advice from our
mothers, doesn't it? Unfortunately, today's society at large has turned away from
the wisdom of our elders and our knee-jerk reaction is to pop a pill for whatever
ails us. In Forget the Cures, Find the Cause, Rayna M. Gangi makes a case for
eliminating the quick fixes that have become a staple of American life, yet never
seem to truly solve our medical dilemmas. Gangi explains why treating every pain
or ailment, whether physical, mental, or spiritual, fails to work. The reason modern
medicines and treatments fail to work is simple: we have failed to eliminate the
cause. Gangi leads the reader through a path of self-discovery and a return to
common sense as she illustrates how today's lifestyle is actually destroying our
very existence. According to Gangi, a Holistic Health practitioner, the path to
wellness lies in changes in diet and our ways of thinking. She points out that most
medical professionals earnestly want to help patients, but are restrained by
threats of lawsuits and are locked into their own idealistic interpretations of what
are currently known as traditional practices, clouded by cultural biases. As
patients, we force ourselves into vicious cycles of self-destruction when we
medicate our insecurities rather than attempting to discover the circumstances
causing our pain. Gangi believes that humans react to every situation either from
love or from fear. Choosing to react from fear can actually cause that which we
fear most to materialize. Utlizing Native American medicine and lore combined
with Christian spirituality, Gangi provides us with some simple steps for improving
our own physical health. She speaks with a motherly compassion for humanity as
she accompanies us on our journey through our Earthly existence. Part
instruction and part inspiration, Forget the Cures serves as a crucial reminder to
mankind to slow down and stop letting the chaos of modern life prevent our
bodies from completing the self-mending they were designed to do.

I couldn't put it down. I'm going to read it again and again. Very valuable
information, beautifully written. I'm buying one for each one of my family and all of
my friends!!

OCTOBER 11, 2006

It isn’t the first time Rayna Gangi has brought an audience to their feet and to tears
in less than an hour. The author of “Forget The Cures, Find The Cause,” started
her book tour in Las Vegas, Nevada last week beginning at the Stardust Hotel and
Casino and finishing the week with the massive association of Holistic
Practitioners and Therapists in recognition of Massage Awareness month and
Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Gamblers and guests streamed past the table at the Stardust lobby and were
amazed that a book on holistic health was being spotlighted in a casino. Gangi’s
answer? “Gamble and have fun, but don’t gamble with your health.”

As she boarded the limo for her next stop, she said a tearful goodbye to the
Stardust, which is closing November 1, then entered the auditorium at the
convention arena from the back, surprising a packed house with her voice-over
introduction to our connection to Earth and the premise of mind, body, and spirit.

“She did something similar to this for the First Lady’s Conference on Women’s
Health a few years ago,” says her marketing V.P. Elsa Claverie. “Her voice
resonates the same way her writing does and people love it.”

Gangi spoke about our similarities with Earth, our energy, and included excerpts
from the chapters on the spine, vitamins, kids and the Seven Keys incorporated in
her book.

Kay Steelman, an attendee and pharmacologist said, “I could listen to her for
hours, and I’ve read the book twice already.”

Renee Garrison, a nurse and chiropractor said, “She will make you laugh, make
you cry, and make you think. Rayna comes from the heart and knows so much
about the body and holistic health.  No one puts it altogether like she does.”

Claverie noted that Ms. Gangi has a “special gift” and has helped so many people
find the path to wellness.

The book tour continues in Alabama next week at Two Hands Massage in
Fairhope, and then in the Florida panhandle at various locations. The hardcover
edition of “Forget The Cures, Find The Cause” came out this week.

Forget the Cures, Find the Cause takes a glimpse into the conflict of modern-day
medicine vs. holistic medicine, and how “mystical” remedies are sometimes
misunderstood and abused.

Author Rayna M. Gangi describes the way in which our minds, emotions, and
thoughts control our bodies, and how disease can be the effect of negative
experiences which manifest themselves in our health.

The book offers the reader a brief, and very general, overview of some of the
“magical” cures that are misunderstood these days, like reflexology, hypnosis,
iridology, and massage therapy. Gangi also enumerates the seven basic keys to
finding the cause of illness and staying well. Diagrams and case studies are
included to facilitate understanding.

For those readers new to holistic medicine and healing therapy, this book will
helpful, as it offers the reader the basic information. Though Gangi overdoes at
times the terms “God” and “Heaven”, it is an informative, interesting read, and the
author’s style straight-forward and engaging.

minute presentation on Holistic Health on October 24 at 6:00 P.M.

Reviewer: Linda Nelson - See all my reviews

Rayna Gangi shows us what to feed our mind, body and spirit, and about our
connection to the earth. We alone have the ability to get healthy or stay sick. Our
thoughts and words are creating our reality, be it health or disease.

The seven keys to health are so simple, but yet so very powerful. This book is
easy to understand even for a lay person. Rayna Gangi is a very loving and caring

Thank you Rayna for this very inspiring book.

Reviewer: Ruth M. (Buffalo, New York) - See all my reviews
I am overwhelmed by this book. Expecting a quick read because of the volume
size, I found myself stopping to digest and meditate on the wonderful information
Gangi has provided. The book is written on three levels, first providing a general
overview of holistic health, the western medicine problem, and some of the
alternative therapies we can choose. Then the book takes on a whole new
personality, delving into the physical aspects of imbalance, the body, and then
branching to the mental and spiritual aspects of disease. It is succinct, much like
Hemmingway, but poignant and engaging, much like Twain. It can bring you to
tears, and sometimes even make you laugh. The most important thing is, it
educates, and Gangi is firm in the belief that we CAN take charge of our own
health. She begins our education and gives us the tools. I am purchasing several
as Christmas and Hannukah presents, even though no one has actually asked for
this type of gift. I feel Gangi has given her heart and soul, divinely inspired, and
done so with only the highest good in mind. Based on that, I will give this book as
a gift from my heart, so that others may begin to control their bodies, minds, and
spirits and get on the right path to health. Can't wait for Book 2, but I'll reread
Book 1 over and over again.
