Selfhelpworks, Inc. Launches LivingLife Series: The Best-Kept Health Care Secret of 2011

Lou Ryan Announces His Radical Health and Wellness Initiatives to Offer High-Efficacy Innovative Interventions

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - May 3, 2011) - In this age of rising health care costs and financial instability, the human psyche is more fragile than ever. 2011 is in full swing and it is time to take control of your health. Selfhelpworks, Inc. ( is the creation of Lou Ryan, the developer of the new six innovative programs in the LivingLife series, which enables members to achieve their health and wellness goals through self-empowerment. Since its establishment in 1979, Selfhelpworks, Inc. has been collaborating with a broad demographic of users to reach their goals through life-altering programs that are evidence-based, clinically tested, and peer reviewed. While other initiatives have similar claims, the difference is in the experience. Through interactive coaching that simulates live, one-on-one sessions, these interventions are tailored for efficacy and success.

Current research only further supports the basis of Ryan's programs. "25% of the population contends with health problems related to over eating, lack of exercise, smoking, and not managing lifestyle related chronic diseases such as diabetes, leading to costly hospital visits," stated Bob Nease, chief scientist at Express Scripts, which manages health benefits for over 50 million people. "Empowering healthy behavior is the key piece to solving the health care crisis."

The LivingLife series includes: LivingFree, a program for smokers, LivingLean, a lifestyle management and nutrition solution, LivingEasy, a stress and resiliency course, LivingSmart, an alcohol addiction module, LivingFit, a 90-day walking program, LivingWell, a diabetes management program -- all life-changing, cognitive behavior-based interventions that empower the participants to conquer challenging lifestyle issues through transformational multimedia training. The user-friendly, interactive series closely recreates the experience of live trainer-led sessions to instruct, support, and motivate users through the privacy of their home computers, iPods, or cell phones.

Corporations and major health insurance plans have taken notice of the engaging and cost-effective program, offering Selfhelpworks, Inc. to their employees in health packages including Concentra, Anthem, Universal Health, and Paramount. Case studies conducted have shown results that exceed traditional programs costing tens of thousand of dollars more. Hundreds of thousands of people around the world have successfully improved their lives by simply applying the program's principles to their daily activities.
