Decide yourself about Drinking Alcohol

In Uncategorized on December 27, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Immediate Health Risks:

Excessive alcohol consumption has effects that increase the risk of harmful health conditions, such as unintentional injuries, falls, drowning, and burns; violence, including spousal/partner and child; risky sexual behaviors, such as unprotected sex, increased risk of sexual assault and/or sex with multiple partners, all of which can result in unintended pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases.
Consuming alcohol during pregnancy can result in stillbirth or miscarriage, as well as a combination of physical and mental birth defects that will last a child’s lifetime.
Another consideration to alcohol abuse is alcohol poisoning, a medical emergency that results from high alcohol levels that suppress the central nervous system. Alcohol poisoning can result in loss of consciousness, low blood and body temperatures, coma, and respiratory depression.

Long-Term Health Risks:

Excessive alcohol use over time can lead to chronic diseases, neurological impairments, and social problems, such as dementia, stroke, cardiomyopathy, hypertension, depression, anxiety, suicide, unemployment, family problems, cancer (mouth, throat, liver, esophagus, liver and colon), liver diseases (alcoholic hepatitis, cirrhosis, hepatitis C), pancreatitis, and gastritis. Additionally, excessive drinking may result in memory loss and shrinkage of the brain. Research suggests that women are more vulnerable than men to the brain damaging effects of excessive alcohol use, and the damage tends to appear with shorter periods of excessive drinking for women than for men.

VERY POWERFUL OM CHANTS

In Uncategorized on December 17, 2012 at 9:45 am

The vibration produced by chanting Om in the physical universe corresponds to the original vibration that first arose at the time of creation. The sound of Om sustains life. Om also represents the four states of the Supreme Being. The three sounds in Om (AUM) represent the waking, dream and deep sleep states and the silence which surrounds Om represents the “Bliss” state.
Because the first of the three states of consciousness is the waking state, it is represented by the sound “A” pronounced like “A” in America. Because the dream state of consciousness lies between the waking and the deep sleep states, it is represented by the letter “U” which lies between the “A” and “M”. This “U” is pronounced like the “U” in would. The last state of consciousness is the deep sleep state and is represented by “M” pronounced as in “sum.” This closes the pronunciation of Om just as deep sleep is the final stage of the mind at rest. Whenever Om is recited in succession there is an inevitable period of silence between two successive Oms. This silence represents the “fourth state” which is the state of perfect bliss when the individual self recognizes his identity with the supreme.

Relaxation technique as a way to reduce stress

In Health, Healthcare, Medicine on December 14, 2012 at 10:19 am

This will help you begin to change the way you think, feel and act.

Visit it any time you want to boost your self-belief, to relax, and to regaimmunityin control of your life and direction.

Print this page and put it above your mirror, above your bed, above your desk, anywhere you’ll see it every day.

Make time – actually schedule some time in your planner or diary to do this. It will dramatically improve your mood, attitude, and approach to life, and therefore what you get from life.

Positive suggestion and visualization, combined with deep relaxation, is an easy way to release/reduce stress.

Just going through this relaxation exercise alone will help to change and improve the way you feel. If you combine the relaxation techniques with a repeated script of positive statements, such as the ‘I am’ script below, you will begin change the way you think, and feel, and act, and all that life offers as a result.

The more you use the relaxation exercise and say or hear the script, then the greater and more sustainable will be the effect.

The time it takes to change depends on different people. Stick with it and it will become easier, more natural, more enjoyable, and it will work.

 

Relaxation, scripts and self-help

The use of scripts while in a deeply relaxed state is an age-old method of gaining and maintaining control over our personal feelings and behaviors.

Relaxation combined with positive ‘self-talk’ enables self-help.meditate

The use of scripts or strong statements while in a deeply relaxed state enables a ‘conditioning’ effect on our subconscious.

Changing our subconscious – our feelings and beliefs – increases our sense of calm and well-being, and also enables change in our conscious thoughts and behaviors. It’s that simple.

Some people find it easier than others to relax deeply. It comes with practice.

If you find it difficult, allow yourself more time when going through the relaxation exercise. Create or put yourself into a quiet relaxing calm environment. Shut out noise and distractions. Lie down rather than sit.

When relaxing and emptying your mind it is natural for thoughts to arise – in which case simply acknowledge them gently and let them go – visualize them floating away like a balloon into the distance. Your ability to empty your mind and relax, free from thoughts, will improve with practice.

When you practice, you will increase the ease with which you can relax, and then you will find that you no longer need such a quiet environment. You will even find that you can achieve a deeply relaxed state in quite noisy, stressful environments. Even sitting at a desk at school moments before taking an exam.

Deep relaxation alone is good for the mind and body, without the use of scripted statements. Combining deep relaxation with good positive scripts is a powerful method of achieving greater happiness and for making positive personal change.

What I’m advocating here is the use of the same basic methodology – deep relaxation, combined with repeating strong statements – to achieve powerful personal change for the good, in this case, stress reduction.

Relaxation exercise

  1. Sit or lie down comfortably. Properly comfortably. Straighten your back, put your shoulders back to open your rib-cage.
  2. Relax your shoulder muscles particularly. Relax your whole body, and empty your mind.
  3. Close your eyes (obviously open them when you need to read the next stage). Take ten deep, slow breaths. Breathe from the pit of your stomach and feel your lungs filling.
  4. Focus on your breathing. Feel it getting deeper and slower. Feel yourself relaxing and any tension drifting away.
  5. Relax your shoulders and neck again.
  6. Visualize yourself being happy, succeeding, winning, being loved, laughing, feeling good.
  7. Relax your forehead, your mouth and your eyes.
  8. Allow a gentle smile to appear on your face as you feel a calmness enter your mind.
  9. Then say (out load ideally) the words below to yourself: (Here is an example of an “I am” statement, but you can make up your own that reinforces the thoughts that are causing you stress and tension)

I am….

I am a good person.

I have integrity.

Whatever life puts before me will be useful experience that will make me stronger, wiser, and more tolerant.

I am capable of handling difficult situations.

I have great motivation. I can do this. (Envision yourself completing the task at hand and doing well)

I am successful. I have been successful before and I will continue to be successful. I deserve to be successful.

I am a hard worker for my achievements.

I am a rightful earner of my accomplishments

I am fair and just.

I am a good person. I am.

 

 

 

 

Common Questions Asked About Hypnotherapy

In Health, Healthcare, Medicine on December 10, 2012 at 8:00 am

What is hypnotherapy? Acupressure Reflexology Healing Grip magic mat beyond healing tea hypnotherapy (17)

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis by a trained hypnotherapist to help a person to make positive changes in their life.  The use of hypnosis allows the hypnotherapist to bypass the critical areas of the conscious mind and access the subconscious mind directly. All our learned behaviors and habits, either good or bad, reside in the subconscious mind. Hypnosis speeds up the process of positive change since the hypnotherapist is working directly with the subconscious mind.  Old unwanted negative associations and patterns of behavior can easily be removed and replaced with positive beneficial ones.

What is the difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is a natural state of mind in which the subconscious mind opens up, becoming very suggestible to new ideas.  Hypnotherapy is the process of using hypnosis by the trained hypnotherapist to help a person make positive, desired life style changes.

What are the areas in which hypnotherapy is helpful? 

Hypnotherapy can help you to make changes in practically any area of your life.  Any bad habits or unwanted behaviors can easily be changed into more positive ones.  Fears and phobias can be eliminated.  You can easily stop smoking, lose unwanted weight, improve your study habits or become more successful.  It is entirely up to you what issue you want to work on.  You can always contact Kevin to discuss your particular issue and find out if hypnotherapy will help you.

How do I know that I can be hypnotized?

If you are intelligent, able to focus and concentrate and want to be hypnotized, then you can be.  It’s up to you.

How well does hypnotherapy work? _dbs-depression-side300

A comparison study:

Psychoanalysis:  38% recovery after 600 sessions

Behavior Therapy:  72% recovery after 22 sessions

Hypnotherapy:  93% recovery after 6 sessions

-American Health Magazine

Does hypnotherapy work for everybody? 

This depends entirely upon you.  If you are serious and really want to work on the issue and improve your life, then hypnotherapy will work wonders.  If you really don’t want to give up that bad habit or change, and just are not being entirely honest with yourself, then hypnotherapy will not be as effective for you.  You will just end up sabotaging yourself and remain where you are at.  The choice is yours – change and improve your life for the better or don’t.  It’s up to you!

Why use hypnosis when I have my “will power”? 

“Will power” or desire alone is often not enough or sufficient to change a long standing or deeply ingrained habit or behavior.  All habits, learned behaviors, patterns and attitudes reside within the domain of your subconscious mind. “Will power,” along with logic and reasoning resides within your conscious mind. Your conscious mind consists of only about 20% of your total mind power.  The remaining 80% of your mind power is your subconscious mind.  Which of the two is stronger – the 20% conscious mind or the 80% subconscious mind?  If the negative behavior or bad habit is deeply rooted in your subconscious mind or you have had it for many years, then your “will power” alone won’t be strong enough to change or eliminate it.  “Will power” or sheer determination can help you to accomplish your goal, but in some cases,  your “will power”  itself can be detrimental.  Your conscious mind can sabotage your “will power” so you won’t be able to change.  There are many reasons (both conscious and subconscious) as to why we behave the way we do.  Most of us become “comfortable” in our position in life.  Any changes made can be scary – so sometimes the conscious mind will sabotage you – to keep you where you are so you remain in your current comfort zone.  Hypnosis, when used by a trained hypnotherapist, can speak directly to the subconscious mind where all the habits, learned behaviors and attitudes reside, thus bypassing the conscious mind entirely.  This is a very effective, quick, and easy path to success.

Isn’t traditional “talk therapy” just as effective?

This depends upon the nature of the issue you are working on.  If the issue is a behavior or habit you want to change, you will need to access the subconscious mind to affect the necessary changes.  All learned behaviors, habits, attitudes and beliefs reside in the subconscious mind.  “Talk therapy” accesses your conscious mind, not your subconscious mind.  You can make changes using “talk therapy”, but it takes a lot longer to do than using hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy accesses the subconscious mind directly.

Does hypnotherapy replace more traditional practices, like seeing a doctor, psychologist or psychiatrist?

No.  Hypnotherapy is used for behavior modification and life style improvements – like stopping biting one’s fingernails, losing weight or stopping smoking.  It may be an adjunct to traditional medical or psychological treatments, but it is not meant to be a replacement.  If you think that hypnotherapy might help you, contact Kevin to see if you will benefit.

What if I am on medication?  Can I still use hypnosis and hypnotherapy?

Absolutely.  Hypnotherapy and hypnosis can help many areas, including pain control, insomnia, losing weight and stopping smoking, to name a few.  Depending on the nature of the problem and the reasons why you are taking the medication, you may be able to reduce your need for medication.  You can contact Kevin to discuss this and find out if you will benefit by hypnosis.

Why don’t more people use hypnosis or get hypnotherapy sessions?

Up until recently, most of the general public has been in the dark concerning hypnosis and the benefits of hypnotherapy.  There are a lot of misconceptions in circulation about hypnosis – what it is or isn’t.  Many people just are not aware that hypnotherapy is available to help them overcome their issues.  The majority of people who learn about the benefits of hypnotherapy are eager to try it.  Why continue to suffer from an issue when you can change it? When you have a cavity, you go to the dentist.  It’s a matter of educating people about hypnotherapy and its benefits.

I practice meditation and do yoga.  Is this the same thing?   meditate

No.  Yoga and meditation are a form of hypnosis since you are focusing your mind and energies.  People use these to be able to focus, concentrate better and relax.  Hypnotherapy, on the other hand, is goal-orientated.  The state of hypnosis is induced by the hypnotherapist to work on a specific issue to make a particular change in your life.  You are taken into the hypnotic state, and then taken completely out of hypnosis.  Yoga and meditation also take you into the hypnotic state, but the purpose of each discipline is different.

 

Can’t I do this myself?  Why do I need to see a hypnotherapist or have sessions?

No.  You are in your current state because you have created it for yourself.  Most of us would fix ourselves if we knew how.  If your car or computer is broken, do most people try to fix it themselves if they have no working knowledge about cars or computers?  You would only make things worse if you tried to take it apart.  You need to go to someone who knows what they are doing to get the problem fixed.  Most of us may be aware we have an issue in our lives we want to change, but we aren’t born with the knowledge how to fix it.  You need to see a “specialist” – a trained hypnotherapist who can help you overcome your specific issue.

How many sessions will it take and how much will it cost?

This depends entirely upon the nature of the issue, how long you have had it and how serious you are in working on it.  The number of sessions it will take can not be determined until the initial consultation and you are put into hypnosis.  It can vary anywhere from 1 session in average to 12 sessions to change that particular issue.  Sometimes people are so happy with the results they have achieved, that they continue with hypnotherapy and work on other issues.  Cost will be determined based on the nature of the issue and sessions required.

How soon will I see the results?

Depending on the issue you are working on and how deeply rooted it is, the results may be immediate after the first session or it may take several sessions for you to start to see the results you desire.

What if I can’t take time off work to come in for sessions?  I am very busy.

Are you too busy to work on yourself?  Do you value yourself so little?  If you are unable to come in for private hypnotherapy sessions, then Kevin is available for hypnotherapy sessions via the telephone.  You also can take advantage of the Total Power Programming Hypnosis CDs you can listen to at home.  It’s all up to you!

My friends and co-workers say hypnotherapy is bad for you and a waste of time and money, beside it “doesn’t work.”  Is this true?

Your friends and co-workers may mean well, but they are wrong!  Skeptics are only expert in their limited frame of knowledge.  Sometimes others subconsciously want to hold you back and keep you where you are in life.  If you move forward and become successful, it may upset the current status quo – so they sabotage your efforts to change. Hypnotherapy works!  What does it matter if they don’t believe in hypnosis?  It’s you and your life that is important!

Who should not use hypnosis?

Those with any mental illness, injury or disease should not use hypnosis, neither should hose with special needs, who require personal attention. Hypnotherapy is not suitable if you have or have ever suffered from personality disorders, psychosis, clinical depression or epilepsy. If in any doubt, please consult your doctor before using any of these products. 

 

What is it like to be hypnotized?

In experiencing altered states it should be acknowledged that trance (altered state of consciousness) is slightly different for everyone. Most find it extremely pleasant, enjoyable and relaxing, saying they’ve never felt so agreeably relaxed and comfortable before. The altered state of consciousness is an individual and personal experience. Some may feel no difference at all, while others may feel very heavy and deeply relaxed, while still others may feel like they were floating – it is best not to have any preconceived ideas and just experience the sessions in your own unique way.

Who can be hypnotized?

Just about everyone if they choose.

Is hypnotherapy safe?

Yes. It is a safe, natural part of human experience. Always protected by our subconscious, trance (altered state of consciousness) is part of everyday life. We are already proficient in its use, we simply don’t recognise it.  Note: Hypnotherapy is not stage hypnosis.  Important: Because these CDs guide you into a deeply relaxed state, it is very important that you DO NOT listen to them while driving a car or operating machinery; if you listen as a passenger in a car, use a personal CD player with headphones.

Can I be forced into trance?

No. It is a state of mind that needs your co-operation. No one goes against their own unique code of behavior in hypnotherapy

Are there any side effects?

No. After Hypnosis you will feel refreshed, restored and absolutely ready to face any challenges that life may throw at you. There are also many extra advantages to Hypnosis –   many examples of people receiving Hypnotherapy for one particular issue, then finding that not only has that been solved but other health problems have disappeared too –  this includes Vertigo, Tinnitus, High Blood Pressure and IBS.

How long does it take? 

Sessions last for approximately one hour and results can often be seen after just one session. Unlike counselling and many other therapies, problems are usually resolved very quickly with Hypnotherapy. The average number of sessions required is two or three.
What is the difference between hypnosis, hypnotherapy, guided imagery, meditation, visualization, and relaxation techniques?

Hypnosis is the method used to put yourself (or with the help of a therapist) into a relaxed state of consciousness that is common to everyone everyday. Hypnosis may be used just to be put into the state of relaxation only, or to feel pleasant, or as a therapy to help change behavior, etc.  Hypnosis as used by professionals is not to be confused with stage hypnosis, which is entirely different from this discussion and is employed as entertainment rather than therapeutic.  Generally a person who administers hypnosis is a hypnotist, though this term sometimes has bad connotations due to stage and theatrical hypnosis.

Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis as a therapy to help individuals improve their lives whether it be just general relaxation or stress reduction, or for other medical or emotional concerns, such as helping individuals reduce pain, cope with trauma, endure medical procedures when medication is contraindicated, reduce symptoms of functional disorders or just general well-being. Hypnotherapy is NOT however, a substitute for professional medical care, but rather a complement to it.

A person who provides hypnotherapy is a hypnotherapist, and usually has additional professional training, certifications and qualifications in mind sciences and therapy as well as counseling skills in addition to hypnotherapy. The hypnotherapist usually provides in-depth consultation and inquiry sessions prior to the actual therapy sessions in order to provide the best possible care to the patient. Many work in liaison with physicians who refer their patients for further care.

Solely for ease of use, the terms hypnosis and hypnotherapy are used interchangeably throughout this site.

Guided Imagery or visualization are processes used by hypnotherapists to help their patients resolve issues or improve their health. The subconscious mind responds very well to images and metaphor which can represent facets of the individual’s life or problems. By using these visualizations, the subconscious mind makes a mental picture and solves the problem since it cannot distinguish reality, it will take the images as a means to improve and move forward with suggestions made.

Meditation can be a form similar to self-hypnosis where the mind goes to a slower level for inner calm and insight but the individual is not being guided. No specific behavior or change is targeted.  It can also be a form of prayer.

How is hypnosis and hypnotherapy different from psychology or cognitive behavioral therapy?

Both of these methods approach the conscious mind and you have to actively think about what you are doing and learning. You use your intellect and your rational thinking to help solve problems. But when you use your thinking mind, there is a greater possibility of negative thoughts interfering, excuses, or barriers going up that block progress. These negative experiences or negative thinking then goes back into the subconscious mind and gets further reinforced.  This is not to say that these methods cannot be helpful, because they can, but it requires a lot of work on a conscious level, and is not as “easy” as hypnosis can be. Many individuals use hypnosis after failing with other methods, because they are so frustrated and fed up by their failure.

Does hypnosis / hypnotherapy really work? 

Hypnosis and hypnotherapy have many research studies done showing how effective the method can be for many types of problems and conditions. If it was not successful at all, there would be publications saying so. If you do a general search on any of the medical search sites, such as PubMed, (National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health), Medscape, WebMD, etc. you will see professional medical journals full of entries on the successful use of hypnosis and hypnotherapy. For example, for IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), hypnotherapy has proven to have one of the highest success rates over other treatment methods, with most studies being done after all other methods have failed with very severe refractory cases.
BENEFITS OF HYPNOTHERAPY:

The purpose of most hypnotherapy is to alter some undesirable aspect of behavior. The aspect of behavior to be modified can be something like overeating, stopping smoking, anxiety or it can range to more serious personality disorders like psychosis. The therapist, in hypnotherapy, puts the subject into a trance like state in which the therapist can deliver suggestion or talk with the subject’s subconscious mind directly. Basically, the trance allows the therapist to bypass the subject’s conscious.

Inducing a trance is a relatively easy process. There are various techniques like having the subject stare at and concentrate on a spot on the wall or waving a stopwatch or pendulum back-and-forth in front of his face as he follows it with his eyes. The therapist, speaking in a monotone, says things like “you are becoming more and more relaxed”, “you can feel the tension draining from your body”, etc. When the subject is in the trance the therapist then gives the suggestions in the same monotonic voice. The suggestions have to be carefully worded to bring about the desired effect. When the therapy session is over, the therapist brings the subject out of the trance by saying something like “you are become more aware of you surroundings” and “open your eyes when you are ready to”. The subject will then “wake up”. Hypnotherapy directed by a therapist is referred to hetero-suggestion.

If the intention of the hypnotherapy is to modify behavior like overeating or stopping smoking, usually more than one session is required. The effects are not immediate but the behavior should begin to change gradually in days or weeks. Hypnotherapy can make it easier for the subject to lose weight or to quit smoking. Also, hypnotherapy can be beneficial in the treatment of some psychoses. In the trance like state the therapist can talk with the subject and bring up repressed events that are causing problems in the subject’s life. Some things too painful to say in a conscious state may be able to be revealed in hypnotic state. These painful past events may be causing symptoms like dreams or nightmares, phobias, etc. A psychotherapist, having knowledge of these events, is in a better position to help the subject recover.

There are many benefits of hypnotherapy for people who want to modify behavior. It is easy and relatively inexpensive form of therapy, even though it may require several session.

Health Benefits of Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy offers various health and fitness benefits. It is the kind of therapy that allows you to enter a state of profound comfort, often called hypnosis or trance. This technique has been employed to aid in smooth and painless childbirth, surgery and psychotherapy. In addition, hypnotherapy has also been proven helpful for successful weight management.

Feel Attractive Now

In Health, Healthcare, Medicine on December 3, 2012 at 11:17 am
“My hips are huge.”
physically-active
“”Oh my God, I can’t be seen in a swim-suit!”
“Why only me?”
If we have low self esteem we may not like how we look or may feel unattractive.This is bad news for our self confidence. We need to think and behave differently to feel more attractive.When we suffer with low self esteem many times we create a poor body image and believe that we are unattractive or ugly- completely unable to see how attractive we are because of our lack of confidence and negative self image.What makes a person attractive and beautiful?
Attractiveness is not just about beauty, it also includes:
Personality
Confidence
A beautiful smile
A great sense of humor
Why do we feel unattractive?
There are several reasons why we may feel unattractive. As I have mentioned the number one reason is poor self esteem and lack of confidence. Criticism from others can make us feel very negative and this can increase our poor self esteem and negative self image.Do you indulge in self criticism and negative self talk? This constant inner negativity can cause us feel inferior and unattractive.Many of us have suffered from abuse and this causes us to have a victim mentality and to feel unattractive because of what has happened.Many have suffered rejection in a relationship and need to deal with this or it can cause us to live in self pity.If you are in a relationship which is abusive mentally or physically you need to do something. Either end the relationship or seek help to end the abuse (counselling).
There are some things we can do today to help ourselves feel more attractive:
Start exercising – exercising will make look and feel better.
Show those pearly whites and smile more. You will feel better and others will respond to you in a positive way. You may even get a compliment that will make your day!
 Take care of yourself.
Keep yourself clean and well-groomed.
Look after your skin. You will start to glow and others will notice!
Lighten up.
Make jokes and laugh. Humor is attractive.
Talk to yourself positively.
Buy something nice to wear that will make you look better. Something that will make you appear more confident.
