New Web-based TV show that premieres November 11 provides practical solutions for post-recession challenges

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Nov. 5, 2009 — In a conference at the Brookings Institution, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said, “from a technical perspective the recession is very likely over.” His statement announced the end of the greatest financial crash since the Great Depression. While the worst may be behind us, the lessons of the Great Recession will be relevant forever.

From Bernard Madoff’s Ponzi scheme to the collapse of the housing and financial markets, people across the US have been confronted with the consequences of hyper-consumption and greed.

“If there’s anything we can learn from of the Great Collapse, it’s that over-emphasizing one part of ourselves – like making lots of money at any cost – while neglecting other parts can wreak havoc on literally the entire world,” says Dr. Robert Puff, an international speaker, holistic success expert, author, and co-host of the Holistic Success Show, a Web-based TV program that will premiere on Wednesday, November 11 at 7 p.m.

Every week, The Holistic Success Show will help viewers find peace in the present moment despite the challenges of daily life. In addition to giving regular advice on living a holistic lifestyle, Dr. Puff and his co-host, Elizabeth Lozano, M.A., a holistic success expert, therapist, speaker and author, will interview top professionals who will provide their insights into leading a successful life.

The Holistic Success Show highlights what Dr. Puff and Ms. Lozano have learned counseling countless individuals throughout the economic downturn. The two are at the forefront of the holistic health movement, which balances career, family, community engagement, physical health and emotional well-being. They see the consequences of lives off-balance everyday. According to them, the events of the past two years have made the need for holistic health more important than ever.

Throughout the recent housing bubble, hard-working people across the U.S. had spent more than they earned, maxed out their credit cards and home equity, and bought houses that they couldn’t afford. At the same time, they worked long hours, which had a negative effect on their families, friends, and their physical health. And once the economy collapsed, they went through financial and emotional upheaval.

“Our show’s goal is to reach out to more people than we ever could in our Southern California offices. Now everyone can learn the wonders of being a healthy, vibrant human being, regardless of what the news says about the economy and the world,” says Dr. Puff.
