Hypnosis to Rev Your Metabolism!

Hypnosis to Rev Your Metabolism

www.doctoroz.com

In my own hypnosis practice, I work with a lot of people to help them loose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle.  In particular, I specialize in helping people who need to loose weight for major medical reasons, such as those who have diabetes type 2 or who have had bariatric weight loss surgery.

British hypnotist Paul McKenna has been a guest on the Dr. Oz Show a couple times now, talking about how hypnosis can be used to boost your metabolism, control cravings, and keep the weight off.  If you have not already seen these episodes, you can find them on the Dr. Oz Show website.

Past Life Regressions: Fact or Fantasy?

Past Life Regressions: Fact or Fantasy?

www.hypnosis.org

Here is an article written by one of my favorite hypnosis instructors, Roy Hunter, speaking on “Past Life Regressions — Are they Fact or Fantasy?”  Some interesting food for thought — on both sides of the debate!

As Roy says:  “Skeptics often claim that a PLR is the result of false memories, while believers claim that past life regressions provide evidence of reincarnation…  This article is written to provide some food for thought, regardless of your own views on this controversial topic.”

New Research Shows Smoking During Pregnancy May Damage Children’s Blood Vessels

If you are pregnant (or planning to have a baby in the future) and you smoke — Please call me! Hypnosis can help make quitting so much easier for you. Both you and your baby deserve to be healthy and happy. And then after, I can also teach you HypnoBirthing so your baby’s birth can be easier as well.

Smoking During Pregnancy May Damage Children’s Blood Vessels

www.webmd.com

Dutch scientists have conducted research that suggests smoking during pregnancy has long-term effects on the thickness and flexibility of their child’s carotid arteries, large blood vessels in the neck that supply blood to the brain.

Cuno Uiterwaal, an associate professor of clinical epidemiology at the Julius Center for Health Sciences and Primary Care at the University Medical Center Utrecht, Netherlands, says, “with our findings, we think that smoking in pregnancy does play an independent role, although we know that exposure of children to [secondhand] smoke is damaging in many areas.”

“The challenge there was to show that it was really smoking in pregnancy and not exposure to cigarette smoke afterward,” says researcher Uiterwaal. “To further explore that, we did this study.”

Harvard School of Public Health: Nicotine Replacement Therapies Not Effective

Nicotine replacement therapies may not be effective in helping people quit smoking

www.hsph.harvard.edu

Nicotine Replacement Therapies (NRTs) have been available as over-the-counter smoking cessation medications since 1996.  However, a recent study conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health shows that people who used an NRT to quit smoking – like the nicotine patch (placed on the skin), nicotine gum, nicotine inhaler, or nasal spray – are just as likely to relapse as those who quit cold turkey.

“This study shows that using NRT is no more effective in helping people stop smoking cigarettes in the long-term than trying to quit on one’s own,” said Hillel Alpert, a research scientist at HSPH.

In fact, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention statistics show that in the past five years, the adult smoking quitting rates have remained the same (rather than improved as one would expect given the popularity of NRT use).

Lois Biener of the University of Massachusetts Boston’s Center for Survey Research said that “using public funds to provide NRT to the population at large is of questionable value, particularly when it reduces the amount of money available for smoking interventions shown in previous studies to be effective.”

Rehabiliation Expert Urges Doctors to Consider Hypnosis for Chronic Pain Management

Hypnosis to tackle problems of chronic pain: International expert

www.news-medical.net

Presenting at the Australasian Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine, Annual Scientific Meeting in Brisbane, visiting rehabilitation expert Professor Mark Jensen, Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, University of Washington, urged healthcare professionals to consider Hypnotic Therapy as a ‘mainstream’ treatment option in the management of chronic pain, and to discuss this option with their patients.

“Pain management for patients, particularly those with long-term illness or injury requires a considered and holistic approach,” Professor Jensen said. “Imaging studies have shown that Hypnotic Therapy influences all of the cortical areas and neuro-physiological process that underline pain. Helping patients manage pain can have a significant psychological impact. What people do to manage pain and what they think about pain, and their social environment, can all influence pain and its negative impact on functioning.”

Imagination Stimulates the Brain to Help You Heal Faster from Injury

The healing power of imagination

www.theaustralian.com.au

Doctors working with burn patients at Adelaide’s Neuro Orthopaedic Institute (NOI) use images of moving body parts and a mirror box to stimulate certain parts of the brain. An injured hand is placed in a box out of sight behind a mirror, and the healthy hand is moved and reflected in the mirror.

“The brain thinks both [hands] are moving and it changes the swelling and the healing [in the injured hand],” says Fiona Wood, a British born plastic surgeon, director of the Royal Perth Hospital’s burns unit.

She wants to take the technique a step further, using an avatar of the person on a computer, to see if giving a patient’s brain the image of their working, undamaged body parts will speed up the healing process.

“I sort of fancifully say we can think ourselves whole. We need to understand how visualization impacts healing.”

New Milford Hospital Offers Hypnosis During Surgery

Relieving the effects of surgery with hypnosis

http://medicalxpress.com

Dr. Courtney Chambers, a surgeon at New Milford Hospital in Connecticut, says of hypnosis for surgery: “What I’m seeing is that more people are using less narcotics and using narcotics for shorter periods after surgery. To hear that people only stayed in bed for a day or two days as opposed to a week or 10 days moping around is very encouraging.”

“…hypnosis in the operating room is less common, but said studies have shown it can be effective. Researchers have found that hearing is the last sense to decline under anesthesia and that a patient can still be influenced by hypnotherapy while under anesthesia…”

Hypnosis Helps Patients Endure Difficult Medical Procedures

Hypnosis Surgery

http://www.sciencentral.com

“Hypnosis has been misunderstood as a nightclub stunt, a loss of control and a type of sleep, but it’s been a therapeutic tool for centuries… Research is showing that hypnosis, a therapeutic tool for centuries, can help some patients endure difficult medical procedures. Dr. David Spiegel: ‘Hypnosis is a way of enhancing people’s own control over their bodies and their consciousness… It’s a matter of teaching them how to restructure their approach to their problem and manage it better.'”
