The publisher that helps millions of people lead a better life.
RIZA was founded in 1980 by Raffaele Morelli, famous Psychiatrist and Bestselling Author.
Riza organises numerous courses nationwide dedicated to Doctors, Psychologists, and Health Workers. The four-year course in Psychosomatic Medicine is certified by MIUR - the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research - and qualifies doctors and psychologists to work in the field of Psychotherapy. A three-year Naturopathy course with a Holistic Approach to Wellness is available in many Italian cities training Naturopaths and "Wellbeing Workers" experts in natural treatments in this Wellness profession. Around 5,000 people attend Riza Courses and Educational Activities every year. The Riza Institute also organizes short courses all over Italy for the general public, as well as conferences and conventions.
The group of Riza Researchers form the literary and creative core of Edizioni Riza, a Publishing House specialized in Health and Wellbeing. It is this poly-functional experience of the Riza Institute which has provided our Publishing House with the tremendous quality and authority in the Wellness sector that have made it the reference point for all topics related to Wellbeing in Italian culture. Edizioni Riza publishes 10 magazines and numerous books every month. Our publications reach around 1,200,000 readers each month. Moreover, the RIZA Website (Riza.it) is a dynamic site with over 1 million visitors per month.
Our Wellbeing comes from establishing Inner Balance and Harmony; stress, anxiety, lack of self-esteem and an inability to tackle day-to-day living can weaken that very Balance and Harmony we wish to achieve. Riza offers people the necessary tools to help them increase their self-awareness, thus becoming active rather than passive in the management of their life. We then see the joy in life again and have a positive step towards the future. The key to our own self-realization and self-achievement is inside each of us and RIZA is here to help to strengthen it.
Nature already knows how to heal us with her energy. Her seasons are our seasons and the more we are attuned to her cycles, the better we maintain our inner state of Balance, Wellbeing and Health. Everything in Nature is an analogy. Every season, every month brings you different plants, fruits and flowers. There is a time for Air (lungs, breath), for Water (blood, kidneys, circulation), for Fire (stomach, liver) and for Earth (skin, muscles, joints). There is a time for seeds (birth), for heat, for cold, etc. We are all a part of this wonderful living dimension - a microcosm in a macrocosm.
We are what we eat. What we eat every day can either heal us or cause dis-ease. That is why gaining weight means losing sight of our psychic and organic "form". True weight loss comes from a positive "slimming" mentality and from avoiding untreated foods, too many fats, sugars and salt that can interfere with the correct metabolic functions.
