Treating Restless Legs Syndrome with Hypnosis

Restless legs syndrome (RLS, Wittmaack-Ekbom's syndrome, or sometimes, but inaccurately, referred to as Nocturnal myoclonus) is a condition that is characterized by an irresistible urge to move one's body to stop uncomfortable or odd sensations. It most commonly affects the legs, but can also affect the arms or torso. Moving the affected body part modulates the sensations, providing temporary relief. RLS causes a sensation in the legs or arms that can most closely be compared to a burning, itching, or tickling sensation in the muscles.

People use words such as: uncomfortable, "antsy", electrical, creeping, painful, itching, pins and needles, pulling, creepy-crawly, ants inside the legs, and many others. Some people have little or no sensation, yet still have a strong urge to move.

Movement will usually bring immediate relief; however, this relief will often be only temporary and partial. Walking is most common, also doing stretches, yoga, biking, or other physical activity may relieve the symptoms. Constant and fast up-and-down movement of the leg, coined "sewing machine legs" by at least one RLS sufferer, is often done to keep the sensations at bay without having to walk. Sometimes a specific type of movement will help a person more than another.

Worsening of symptoms by relaxation
Any type of inactivity involving sitting or lying—reading a book, a plane ride, watching TV or a movie, taking a nap—can trigger the sensations and urge to move.

Causes of Restless Leg SyndromeThe most commonly associated medical condition is iron deficiency (specifically blood ferritin below 50µg/L, which accounts for just over 20% of all cases of RLS. Other conditions associated with RLS include pregnancy, varicose vein or venous reflux, folate deficiency, hypoglycemia, sleep apnea, uremia, diabetes, thyroid disease, peripheral neuropathy, Parkinson's disease and certain auto-immune disorders such as Sjögren's syndrome, celiac disease and rheumatoid arthritis. RLS can also worsen in pregnancy.

Certain medications may worsen RLS in those who already have it, or cause it secondarily eg anti-nausea drugs, certain antihistamines (often in over-the-counter cold medications), drugs used to treat depression (both older tricyclics and newer SSRIs), antipsychotic drugs and certain medications used to control seizures. Treatment of underlying conditions, or cessation of use of the offending drug, often eliminates the RLS.

Treatment for Restless Legs Syndrome
No proof has been found of the effectiveness of drugs therapy and the cost is high. Drugs used include dopamines, opioids, benzodiazepines and anti-convulsants. Sufferers should always have their iron levels checked.

Alcohol, caffeine and sometimes tobacco can aggravate restless legs syndrome and should be used minimally or cut out all together.

Using Hypnosis to Relieve Restless Legs SyndromeAlthough restless legs syndrome is a neurological disorder it is now beyond any scientific doubt that the mind and body are deeply interconnected. Hypnosis is nature's optimum tool for influencing physical processes through the power of the mind. Restless legs syndrome can be eased and greatly diminished by the effective and repeated use of hypnotic suggestion. A download hypnosis mp3 is available to bring relief to Restless Legs Syndrome and a script for use by professional hypnotherapists.

How Hypnosis Can Help to Heal a Broken Heart

If you have ever been in love and that relationship has come to an end, whether you were the one who wanted to continue or yourself chose the moment to end, you will know how difficult and painful the ensuing days and weeks can be. They don't talk about a broken heart for nothing. It is literally that painful. While the sorrow can invade every part of you, your heart does feel as though it is breaking.

There are five stages of grief which have been identified and it is usually only when you have experienced all five stages that you can begin to see a brighter future, one of possibility without your ex, even though you may feel you will always love him or her in a special way. Maybe you will.

The healing can only come about with change - change of attitude, change of focus, change of belief that there will be a new future. Consciously, you will hear advice, you may even know that it is the best advice but that does not stop you longing for your ex, wishing you could turn back time.

The change has to come about at the unconscious level and that is where hypnosis can help.

It can be difficult to stop thinking about your ex-partner, and the feelings of sadness and loss can be hard to deal with. This is of course natural for a time, but if you feel it has gone on for long enough, a "Getting over a relationship" hypnosis session on MP3 can help you calm those feelings down.

The session will help you 'update' your unconscious mind so that you feel more like moving on.

Of course you will be able to remember the good things about the old relationship, but with less sense of loss, and more positive feelings about the future and the possibility of other relationships.

There is also a professional "Get Over a Relationship" hypnosis script which is free to download at the moment.

Solving a Case of Sleep-eating with Hypnotic Regression

"The Covert Consumer in the Midnight Kitchen" By Rob Hadley

In hypnotherapy we hear many times of the careless act that leaves a child scared for life. An unjustified scolding, or a bullying episode that a parent never learned of finds its way deep into a child's memory, only to surface many years later as a trigger for later anxiety. And yet, from time to time we see this flow from one generation to another move the other way. This was one such situation.

My client was a gentleman who was successful at the highest levels in the performing arts. His high profile, abundance of talent and ability to bring joy to so many contribute to what appears a happy and successful life. However, like so many of us, he also has a secret habit he feels ashamed of and embarrassed about, which he hides from even his closest friends.

Many mornings when he gets up, he comes into the kitchen to find remnants of food. These are often leftovers of the most elaborate dishes, always prepared for one. He has no memory whatsoever of any visitor, or providing any such meal. It is just as though someone has come into the house, feasted plentifully and then left without clearing anything away. This sometimes happens twice a week.

My client knows it is impossible that anyone could be getting into his house. This is not an isolated incident, it has happened periodically over many years, sometimes lasting months with a frequency of about twice a week. At times it fades for a few weeks, only to start happening again. As disturbing as the situation has become, my client has known for a long time there is only one explanation for the situation. It is he himself that is enjoying this feast, though he has absolutely no memory of it whatsoever. He even went to the extreme of weighing himself before sleeping and on waking up to look for weight shifts.

He came to me when he found there was really no credible solution to this habit. On my suggestion he went back and plotted the last few incidents and we looked at the results. While there was no particularly obvious cause for the night eating episodes, it was evident that they would often take place on Fridays or Saturdays. At first I thought we were looking for something he did himself at weekends, that would trigger the resulting action.

It was evident that the sources of stress in my client's life had increased significantly in recent years. Although he hed raised a daughter alone, he had had a life relatively free from tension up until the teen years of one of his daughters who had acted out quite severely in her teens, until finding her path. She is now an acclaimed singer in her own right. She did however provide a good deal of grief, particularly as a fifteen year old.

It turned out that when in hypnotic regression my client revealed his deep seated fears about his daughter during her teen years. She would go out at weekends, sometimes with men her father resented and distrusted. The fifteen year old would stay out till all hours of the night, sometimes returning drunk. For a father raising his daughter alone this was deeply upsetting. His daughter was reacting against her only parent, a father who loved her dearly.

Although his daughter came through this period relatively unharmed, her father would wait up many nights generally at weekends, waiting for her to arrive home. He would wait up in the kitchen, sometimes preparing the most elaborate dishes. He found this kept him awake and took his mind off whatever was happening to his daughter. In hypnosis it became evident that the later feelings of insecurity and anxiety were triggering a repeat of these lonely nightly vigils. It was a behavior that had served him well in the past. His mind simply decided to re-enact the same activity to deal with the new and unrelated stresses of his life. He was quite literally still sitting up at night waiting for his teenage daughter to come safely home. The fact that she has been married for the last twenty years to a loving husband in California was something his subconscious mind had conveniently overlooked in its desire to find a coping tool for stress.

Once identified this was a simple situation to remedy and my client left feeling greatly relieved and three months later has not had a single instance of night eating since. He was able to chat with his daughter about the situation and laugh about it how it had affected him for all these years. His daughter, incidentally now has three daughters of her own, just entering their teenage years.

Stop Nail Biting with Hypnosis

Nail biting is an unattractive habit at any age and for both sexes. Some people have such a bad habit that they bite down beyond the quick causing bleeding and discomfort. It is also most unhygienic for someone to keep putting their fingers in their mouth transferring germs from the outside. Long-term, nail-biting causes stunted nails and poor nail growth. The habit often starts in childhood and carries on into adulthood, especially for anyone suffering from stress or anxiety.

Nail-biting is a habit which can easily be stopped with hypnotherapy. Hypnotic trance is a perfectly natural and safe form of deep physical and mental relaxation in which positive suggestions are fed to the unconscious mind which is controlling the habit and causing the person to keep nail biting. By changing the suggestions in a relaxing way, the person stops nail biting without difficulty. The negative habit can also be replaced with a more positive habit eg one finger gently stroking the other hand.

There are three main approaches:

1. To have the person visualize their new long, healthy nails and for that image to be so powerful that the conscious desire to show off the attractive nails is stronger than the unconscious need which is causing the nail-biting habit.

2. To 'shock the person into stopping nail-biting using aversion therapy. This suggestion has been used successfully in this way:
"I want you to listen to exactly what I say. In a few moments ... I will ask you ... to put your finger in your mouth ... just as you do ... when you are biting your nails. As soon as you put your finger in your mouth ... it will taste so bitter ... and vile ... sickeningly vile ... that you will IMMEDIATELY remove your finger ... from your mouth. Whenever you put your finger ... into your mouth ... with the intention of biting your nails ... you will experience this same feeling. Now put your finger into your mouth. Notice how sickening it tastes ... notice just how vile ... and nauseating it tastes. You just have to take your finger from out of your mouth now! Remember ... if you should ever put your finger in your mouth again ... with the intention of ... biting your nails ... it will always taste so sickeningly vile ... and nauseating ... that you will immediately remove it ... and you will never bite your nails again!"

3. Another technique is using the NLP approach of parts integration ie asking one part of the unconscious mind to help the other.

In all treatments, reinforcing the visualization of feeling pride at seeing long, healthy and attractive nails in the future is beneficial.

It is now possible to download hypnosis MP3 files to help with over 400 unwanted habits, health problems, phobias, sexual problems and many areas of self-improvement.

Instant and Rapid Hypnosis Inductions

There are ways of using instant inductions to take someone immediately into a trance as can be seen in this video:

Stage hypnotists use such techniques but only after testing to find whether the person is a good subject for deep trance and after hypnotizing them with a longer method, taking them into deep physical and mental relaxation. The person can then be brought back into the room but re-hypnotized instantly with such techniques.

Instant and rapid hypnosis inductions look dramatic but really do not have any place in a therapeutic session.

Treating Crohn's Disease with Hypnosis

Millions of people worldwide are suffering from bowel conditions such as Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and Diverticulitis - also known as "diseases of the gut".

Hypnotherapy has been officially recognized since 1958 by the American Medical Association and has continued to grow and show success in the use for many medical conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), including hospitals, research centers and gastroenterology practices.

"Over 15 years of solid scientific research has demonstrated hypnotherapy as an effective, safe and inexpensive choice for IBS symptom alleviation. Hypnotherapy routinely produces positive results in over 80% of the people who use it. It has been so overwhelmingly successful for IBS symptom alleviation that Adriane Fugh-Berman, MD, chair of the National Women's Health Network in Washington, DC, says that hypnosis should be the treatment of choice for IBS cases which have not responded to conventional therapy."

This appeared in American Whole Health:

"Mind-body approaches may be key to reducing symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), doctors in Germany report. Patients who supplemented standard care with behavioral therapies, including relaxation and coping strategies, fared much better than those who received standard care alone (American Journal of Gastroenterology, 4/00).

Other studies have confirmed the benefits of hypnosis for men and women with diarrhoea, constipation, cramps and other symptoms of this common and often disabling bowel complaint.

In an earlier Flemish study (Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology, Supplement 230 1999), 27 people with IBS were asked to visualize their gut and to replace the discomfort with normal bowel function. One patient, for example, pictured her bowel transforming from a rigid pipe into an elastic hose.

After 12 weekly sessions, pain, flatulence, and bloating were reduced or disappeared and bowel habits returned to normal in all but one of the patients. Those who practiced these hypnosis techniques at home with an audiotape got better faster."

So how does hypnosis help bowel condtions? Direct hypnotic suggestion has been found effective for helping a wide range of health problems such as high blood pressure, asthma, skin and inflammatory conditions by regulating automatic, unconscious body functions such as blood flow, hormonal levels and so on. These are functions that are normally out of the control of the conscious mind but in hypnosis we can have direct access to the unconscious mind which takes care of all the involuntary body systems.

Chronic illnesses and conditions which have a high rate of symptom return after treatment are red flags for psychological factors. You see, if the problem is psychological, surgery will not solve it and the mind will have to figure out a way to re-create the symptoms.

Using a professionally written Hypnosis Scriptsfrom Hypnotic World, I asked the client to imagine "soldiers that are preparing to fight for you...the highland regiment of antibodies… to fight for you against the Crohn’s disease… See these warriors growing in number… growing and growing until they outnumber the diseased cells or viruses by millions to one… growing stronger and stronger, more and more powerful by the second."

An hypnosis MP3 is available for Crohn's Disease.

Has Asthma Got You All Choked Up? Control Attacks With Self-Hypnosis As A Treatment

Allergic reactions are one of the most widespread medical disorders affecting Americans at present. An allergy is an immune system response to a stimulus from the environment. The body incorrectly identifies the stimulus as unsafe, and attempts to fight it, causing the symptoms of an allergic reaction. The universal symptoms are an itching or runny nose, wheezing, coughing and irritated eyes.

One very prevalent type of allergy is asthma. It is a chronic allergy that directly affects the lungs and airways in the body. The airways are easily irritated by allergens which, causes the build up of a thick lining of mucus. Allergens and other stimuli can bring on an asthma attack, including temperature changes, humidity variations, smoke and pollen. Usually, an asthma attack has various respiratory symptoms, including coughing, wheezing, chest tightness and difficulty breathing. Another symptom of asthma is shortness of breath.

Symptoms of an asthma attack are caused by the air passageways reacting to the allergen or trigger. When exposed to a trigger, the air passageways become irritated and narrow, resulting in the respiratory symptoms. These symptoms may range from moderate to ominous, depending on the severity of the allergy. Any asthma symptom can be scary, and should be taken seriously.

Asthma is most often diagnosed in childhood, as symptoms tend to manifest by the age of 5. Currently, it affects around ten to twelve percent of all children, and has been steadily mounting. There is no explicit known reason for the increase, but risk factors include exposure to cigarette smoke, other allergies and a history of other respiratory infections. Besides, the odds of being diagnosed are augmented in males and African Americans.

At present, there are numerous different types of asthma medications and methods of treatment that may effectively reduce symptoms. Two core types of asthma medication are fast-acting medicine to treat symptoms during an attack, and preventing medicine, which is taken on a regular basis to shrink the risk of having an attack. Short-acting Beta-2 Antagonists (SABAs) are bronchodilators, which is a type of fast acting medicine that facilitates opening air passageways and easing the symptoms of an attack, and are generally given through asthma inhalers. This type of medicine doesn't treat the inflammation that causes an attack, but is helpful when taken during an attack, and will last for 3 - 6 hours after it is administered.

Controlling asthma drugs are taken regularly and treats the underlying causes of the asthma attacks. The most widespread types of this medicine are inhalers containing a steroid that reduces inflammation in the air passageways and lungs and Long-Acting Beta-2 Antagonists (LABAs). The effects of long-acting asthma inhalers generally last for twelve hours, and may help reduce the number of attacks that take place during sleep. Various medications have very harsh side effects for some people.

Several types of asthma treatment alternative therapies are presently getting more popular. Some alternative approaches concentrate just on preventative care, like not smoking during pregnancy or around kids, including a selenium-rich diet or removing sources of allergy causing substances in the home. Some other treatments include reducing weight, increasing Omega-3 consumption, decreasing Omega-6 consumption, relaxation techniques, acupuncture and hypnotherapy. It is essential to note that any type of alternative therapy is intended to be used along with medical advice, because fast-acting medications are often required for an acute asthma attack.

One modality that is becoming more popular is self-hypnosis or hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy for asthma has the goal of triggering the relaxation response, which can help to prevent or diminish your symptoms when having an attack. Some other alternative types of asthma treatment also employ relaxation methods as a tool to diminish symptoms, such as with meditation programs.

Using hypnosis, one can treat the emotional elements of an attack, which have the capability to make it much more severe. It is only human nature to become anxious or feel threatened when we feel our air supply being cut off. This instinctual reaction actually may intensify the severity of an attack. Such feelings of fear and dread about having an attack can really bring on an attack. These emotional causes and responses are handled with the asthma treatment method of self-hypnosis.

Hypnotherapy has been proven to be an extremely useful asthma treatment. With a trained hypnotherapist, or using one of the many recorded programs available, you can easily glide into a relaxing state, and start to take charge over breathing and bodily functions. One of the most effective techniques is to learn how to utilize self-hypnosis to actually abort an imminent attack. The self-hypnosis method of asthma treatment is very successful, and may work well for those who cannot take or do not want to take prescription medication regularly. Which asthma treatment you choose depends both on the seriousness of your symptoms and what type of treatment that works well for your symptoms.

Proof of Hypnotic Trance

It's common for people in trance to feel that they're not hypnotized, when in fact they are. Often such subjects don't realize how deep they went until they come back to full awakening consciousness.

Some people also think that they are 'under the hypnotist's control' but this is not so. They are free to reject or accept suggestions.

Tom came for his first session of hypnosis in 1998 saying that he needed to lose some weight but couldn’t stop nibbling in the evenings and he also drank a bit too much. Tom was a lawyer who spent a lot of time dining with clients; as a result he was about three stone overweight.

He didn’t seem to have any real emotional issues that needed resolving, it appeared he had gotten into bad habits and lazy ways. He was well motivated to slim and really wanted to get back into sport, which he’d enjoyed in his healthier days.

Before I hypnotized Tom he said “by the way - can you put in a post hypnotic suggestion or do something just to prove that I’m hypnotized because I don’t really believe in it and would like convincing.”

I explained to him that he was always free to accept or reject suggestions and that the proof would lie in his change of eating habits but Tom persisted.

During the hypnosis I described how Tom’s arm was becoming so light that it was beginning to float up in the air, and the lighter it became, the higher his arm floated, until his floating arm was way above his head. Then I had Tom open his eyes and look at that floating arm.

When he came out of trance Tom told me that it was he who had let his arm float up, that wasn’t proof enough for him.

The next time I saw Tom he told me he’d lost about four and half pounds in weight but still wanted some proof that he was actually hypnotized.

This time I told him his leg was so heavy that he just couldn’t lift it from the floor. Try as he might that leg would not lift. And the harder he tried the heavier his leg became.

But that still wasn’t proof.

On the following visit I had Tom imagine himself in a garden where an annoying fly wouldn’t leave him alone, it kept brushing against his face and the itch was so bad that he just had to keep flicking it away. The restless arm was up, trying to flick away that imaginary fly.

But that was no proof for Tom.

On his next visit Tom told me he was well on his way to achieving his goal - he’d lost nearly a stone now, had no interest in snacking, was eating small, sensible portions of food and exercising more and feeling a whole lot better. He asked for help with his golf as he hadn't played for several years and needed a confidence booster to get him back into it.

But he also wanted me to give him one last proof.

So I told Tom that when he woke up, each time he saw me pick up my pen he would have to straighten his tie. This he duly did, but reasoned that his tie was crooked and he was going to straighten it anyway (even though I successfully demonstrated this post hypnotic suggestion six times).

A year later Tom phoned my office. He was playing golf really well, in addition to several other sports. He was happy with his weight and his confidence was fine, but still he wanted just one more proof of hypnosis.

Guess what this was????

Giving is the Nature of Abundance

Abundance is a fascinating topic. A solid understanding of it can make you rich in many ways. So, let's examine the root of abundance, which is giving.

Until a few years ago, I thought the notion, "You only get what you give" was illogical nonsense. I mean, think about it, how can giving be related to getting? Isn't it true that the more you save, the more you have?

Well, in recent years I have come to understand the secret to abundant living and having everything you want. The secret is GIVING. You MUST give in order to receive. Yes, it's a religious concept, but it's also universally true.

Here's how abundance works (and how to be rich) from a hypnotherapy point of view...

When we hoard things and we are stingy with money, time, etc., it sends our subconscious mind the message that the universe is not a safe place and that we must collect things and keep them if we want to have them.

Working with depression-era clients has taught me a lot about this. People who lived through the economic depression in the United States in the 1920s and 30s often feel that they need to hold on to as much money and as many things as possible. Often their homes will be filled with clutter...things they keep "just in case." They feel that the universe could cut off their supply at any time, so
they must grab things and hold on to them. This idea of clinging, collecting and hoarding is the opposite of an abundant mindset.

The universe is ALWAYS ready to give more. There will ALWAYS be more money and another opportunity. I prefer to call this type of abundant mindset "living with an open hand." When you have your hand open, it can give and receive.

When you live in this manner: giving, sharing, and letting go of worry about the future, you live abundantly. You send a signal to your subconscious mind that it is safe to let go and that you are ready to give AND receive. The closed hand is actually unsafe because, though it doesn't lose what is in it, it cannot receive
any more. It cannot live abundantly. It is a closed circuit leading nowhere.

Open that hand and live your life as a free person. The universe is willing to give you everything you want, once you are ready to receive it, give back, and receive again. This allows a constant flow of energy through your life.

Self driven methods of hypnosis are extremely effective in making lasting changes. Would YOU like my help with making this powerful change in 2008 and living the life you deserve right NOW?

I have dedicated my life to developing hypnosis products and services which remind you of the passion and determination you naturally have to move forward with your goals quickly and easily.

The Ultimate Truth in Persuasion

OK, so you want to improve your persuasion power right?

Why? What's your intention?

As you know your intent directs the flow of energy in your interactions with others. So doesn't it just make sense to have in mind a really clear and strong intent before you engage in your powerful persuasion mission.

If you were to think about the person(s) you want to persuade what comes to mind in regards to the benefits they will gain from your persuasion?

Of course your 'persuasive pitch' will be received much more receptively if your intent is strongly biased to their benefits.

So stepping into their shoes what benefits can you perceive from their angle and looking at the situation as if you were watching a movie what other ideas come to mind?

Having some idea of what the other person(s) want and keeping that positive intention nice and strong in mind when interacting with the person(s) will automatically create a 'good vibe' between you, thus creating that well known
fundamental persuasion skill - Rapport!

Now in your interaction with the other party you would increase your persuasion parlance greatly by asking well focused questions. Basically you want to ask questions that get the other person to open up so that you can discover one
of the very powerful motivators-to-action in humans known as 'values.'

This is another aspect of the very fascinating way in which the human mind works because you find yourself becoming increasingly curious about people's values as your
persuasion power increases, doesn't it.

Now an important point to remember in this curious adventure is when you have got them talking: You Shut Up! AND Listen!

Isn't that cool, you just sit there and listen as they give you loads of high quality information that you can then use to powerfully persuade and guide them!

By paying attention you will notice that people use certain words which have a lot of emotional value for them personally. You could call these words their personal trance words.

Let me give you an example to clarify what we are talking about. Let's say you are helping someone make a change in their life. Now presuming the person has asked you to help them you can make the change process happen even more smoothly by asking them certain questions. So during conversation with this person you could ask them,
"Why exactly do you want to make this change?" And, "What would having made this change, give you?" And also you could ask, "Why is that important to you?"

As you ask these questions you will notice that they have to access deeper parts of their minds. So by paying attention and listening carefully you will discover some of their personal trance words.

Some possible examples of their personal trance words might be: inner peace, better energy, assertiveness. Keep in mind the important fact that these words could have a deep and powerful feeling associated with them in their internal experience.

Now what do you suppose would happen if you were to then describe and incorporate those wonderful personal trance words into your persuasive change 'pitch'?

That's right, they would be much more likely to go along with your persuasive intervention because you are using words which stimulate powerful feelings inside them for the changes that they really want!

So just what is 'the ultimate truth in persuasion'? Well the fact is in the art of persuasion, or indeed anything, there are many ways of doing things, many perspectives, techniques, methods and tools. The point being, by using it
and paying attention to feedback, will it get you the results you want?

Overcome MRI Scan Anxiety with Hypnosis

I just received notification that someone downloaded a hypnosis Mp3 to Overcome MRI Scan Anxiety.

As someone who needs a head MRI Scan annually due to earlier brain tumours, I know all about that anxiety. I do not generally suffer from claustrophobia but lying down, putting my head into a fixed cradle then going backwards into a machine from which I cannot see anything further than a couple of inches in front of my eyes and lying completely still for 20 minutes while listening to whirring, banging and other noises is more than I could cope with. I once travelled a five hours round trip for a MRI Scan but screamed and burst into tears when the operator pressed the button for me to enter the scanning tube. I just could not go through with the scan, even though it is vital to check on possible life-threatening tumours. Rationally I know I am perfectly safe but phobias and anxiety stem from irrational fears.

When I lived in Spain, the alternative was to pay 500 € to use an open MRI machine in which my head was still in a cradle but I could see above and around me. No such machine exists in Belgium so when I moved here in 2006, it was a real problem for me.

I used hypnosis to overcome the anxiety of the MRI Scan and it worked. I could not overcome the anxiety by myself with self-hypnosis so needed to pay another hypnotherapist to help me. Fortunately, there is now a download hypnosis Mp3 specifically to overcome MRI Scan anxiety which costs just $12.95 and can be downloaded in minutes.

Let The Law of Attraction and Hypnosis Allow You to Achieve Your Health Goals

The Law of Attraction is a concept which has been around for many years and applied in collaboration with many different actions and events in life. It is the concept of controlling certain aspects of your life with the power of your mind. The Law of Attraction has always been a very controversial topic with many believers and just as many non-believers. It can be quite simple to test the Law of Attraction and see for yourself if your dominant thoughts find a way to manifest in your life and everyday events.

Using the Law of Attraction to bring health and a more natural side of life into your everyday routine is something more and more people are interested in. Many people find it so difficult to stay on a healthy path with so many fad diets, fast food restaurants and junk food for sale everywhere you go. Using the Law of Attraction in your everyday life can significantly help you when it comes to your health goals. First, you must understand that it is your full and honest belief in this system which provides the results you are looking for. If you have doubts or are not sure about the Law of Attraction then you cannot expect results.

To fully understand the Law of Attraction it is important to think of everyone and everything in the universe as energy that has manifested into a certain shape. Learning how to control this vibrating energy, yourself and your consciousness is the key to the Law of Attraction. So if everything is energy, and we control the
vibrations of our energy then it is entirely possible to control the vibrations we wish to have and only those vibrations. Let's look at three important steps to follow in order to use the Law of Attraction to bring health into your life.

1.) Identify specifically what you want - meaning what does good health mean to you? Do you want to lose weight, survive cancer, live a long and vital life... the list can go on and on.

2.) Focus on your desired result - it does not matter how you get to the end result, simply focus on your end result, not the journey to get there.

3.) Take action - take part in whatever type of actions inspire you
in relation to your end result of good health. Visiting holistic doctors, exercising, eating healthy, supplementing and more. Anything!

The Law of Attraction has the power to take you down the road of good health and keep you there. All you have to do is keep your thoughts on the end result and act as you are inspired to act. Good health is something that is faster and faster becoming scarce in our world and if the Law of Attraction can help with that, we
should definitely let it!

Brand New Paralinear Hypnotherapy Recordings

Over the years, many scientific articles have demonstrated the power of accessing both hemispheres of the brain. By this I mean having one message go in one ear and another message, at the same time, go in the other ear. This is nothing new.

Imagine how powerful it would be to have those messages alternate between the right and left ears. What if you could have one message in one ear, another in the other ear and then have them continue to switch back and forth? This would be very powerful, since both positive messages would be delivered to both sides of the brain. This would mean that whether you were a more left-brain or more right-brain person, it wouldn't matter! You would get the same messages delivered to both hemispheres. In a sense, the powerful messages for change would saturate your brain
with their positive, life-changing effects.

After months of research and hard work in the studio, the Paralinear recordings are available.

They use Daytime Affirmation Recordings with some absolutely amazing effects! I
am sure you will enjoy the state-of-the-art technology used in these recordings.

- One of the scripts is either Unlimited Motivation, Unlimited Confidence, Abundance (Using the Law of Attraction), Relaxation or Focus/Concentration
- The other script is the title of the recording (220+ subjects)
- The scripts go back and forth switching between the left and the right channel (or ear or speaker)

Find out about this monumental contribution to the world of clinical hypnotherapy today by visiting this site. Scroll down the left hand toolbar till you find "Paralinear recordings".

Take your life to the next level!

Using Metaphors in NLP and Therapy - Book Recommendations

The word metaphor is derived from the Greek and literally means "to carry across". A metaphor makes a comparison and way of describing a situation which helps the listener to see a situation in a new light. In NLP metaphors are used "to chunk sideways", moving the listener from one context to another. This can be in therapy or coaching, in group training situations or in management.

As Nick Owen describes in his book The Magic of Metaphor,
"Metaphors are not simply poetic or rhetorical embellishments, but powerful devices for shaping perception and experience."

Using metaphors in therapy may take years of practice so the following books are excellent sources of reference and ideas. Just follow the links to buy them from Amazon:

Hypnotherapy to Stop Blushing

What Causes Facial Blushing?
Blushing is the result of the capillaries beneath the skin widening. More blood accumulates in this area causing the skin to go red. Chemically speaking, the widening of the capillaries is caused by a release of adrenalin.

Blushing is a non verbal display of emotions, triggered by a sense of some kind of threat whilst chronic blushing, or erythrophobia, is thought to be caused by an overactive sympathetic nervous system.

Generally blushing is associated with a feeling of inferiority. It is important to note that the conscious part of the mind may know that this feeling is totally illogical and yet the unconscious part may still feel a sense of being inferior.

From this, it is highly probable that blushing occurs as some evolutionary mechanism whereby in a social interaction, one shows submission to the other more dominant party. Looking at the animal kingdom, there is certainly precedence for this kind of signaling mechanism. Especially where in a tribe situation, there would be one dominant male, the alpha male. Showing submission in a possibly threatening stuation may well result in survival for the non alpha male.

The problem is that this mechanism is no longer relevant to our modern society.

Treatment with Hypnotherapy
I have treated blushing effectively with a ruler method which I found on the Hypnotic World Scripts Service. Under hypnosis, the person sees a ruler standing in the ground with a pointer which indicates the current level of discomfort. Using self-hypnosis, the person learns to lower the level as low as possible as they remain calm and relaxed. The embedded suggestion is that should they begin to redden from embarrassment, all they have to do is mentally lower the pointer, down and down. Their face will then quickly cool down and return to its normal colour.

Hypnotherapy always helps to strengthen the ego and reduce underlying stress and anxiety. Like many behaviours that hypnosis treats, it reconditions the unwanted blushing response to the trigger, whether known consciously or not.

There is also a download hypnosis MP3 to treat blushing available.

While researching treatment for blushing I also found something on surgery. Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS) is the procedure that is most commonly associated with facial blushing. It involves part of the sympathetic nerve being burned, severed, removed or clamped. The surgery is predominately used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating, especially of the palms), but it is also used to treat facial blushing.

SSRI drugs (Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) or Beta-blockers are also prescribed, sometimes with side effects such as weight gain. The only side-effect with hypnotherapy is a relaxing, enjoyable experience.

Waking Hypnosis

Waking hypnosis is a state of mind in which there is no difference between being hypnotized, with the eyes open or the eyes shut. The state of mind is the same.

Waking hypnosis is a state of hyper-awareness or concentrated attention. As a result, there are not the distractions in waking hypnosis like in the conscious state. It can be used very effectively if efforts are concentrated on a single project.

For instance, if one has an intricate or exacting task to do, he may do it better by using waking hypnosis. This can mean playing a better game of golf, bowling a better game, studying with more retention and recall, or writing a letter, poem, story or scientific document.

Waking hypnosis can mean a greater command of mental and intellectual capacities at any given time with correct preparation and suggestion. Those who use it cover a wide swath of endeavour, from weight lifters to oral surgeons, from engravers to gymnasts, from real estate salesmen to lecturers and teachers, from billiard champions to actors.

Waking hypnosis means being tuned in and turned on to a specific project. As in the case of hypnosis generally, there seems as yet to be no clearly defined scientific explanation or study as to precisely how waking hypnosis works and how its mental alterations function.

We know that it can be a self-directed state, or one directed by a hypnotist but exactly what in the way of brainwave alteration or energy change takes place has yet to be scientifically studied and documented. There are persons who do better than others in waking hypnosis.

We cannot explain, for example, why a subject who in the conscious state can only do ten push-ups can consistently do fifteen in waking hypnosis. We cannot explain why it is that intuition, concentration and inner control of one's talents are increased and augmented with waking hypnosis. All we know is that it does work, but not "how" or "why."

Similarly, expanded awareness is a technique of focussing on a spot above the normal height of vision then allowing the eyes to expand left and right to take in a wide range of awareness. It is a useful learning technique at seminars or in lectures.

    5 Hypnosis Myths Exploded

    OVER the years, hypnosis has picked up all sorts of weird associations from stage hypnotists, the media and superstition. This is a great shame, because in reality, hypnosis is your single most effective tool for change. Hypnosis is your birthright, and you should know how to use it so it doesn't use you. Here we dispel the biggest hypnosis myths.

    Hypnosis Myth 1) All hypnosis is the same

    As with anything, hypnosis can be good, bad or indifferent. The most common is old-style authoritarian hypnosis of the type "You are getting sleepy, you are feeling confident". Unsurprisingly, this sort of hypnosis doesn't work well with many people. Good hypnosis uses subtle psychological principles and advanced communication patterns.

    It's like the difference between a football coach who thinks you'll perform best if he yells at you, compared with the more elegant style of a great leader who knows that to get the best from his people, he needs to understand motivation, to cajole, encourage and reward.

    Hypnosis offers hundreds of sessions using the best type of hypnosis.

    Hypnosis Myth 2) Subliminals work

    Subliminals are words that you can't hear. Common sense says they shouldn't work, and there's no research proving that they do.

    Hypnosis Myth 3) Some people can't be hypnotized

    The only reason you can't be hypnotized is if you are incapable of paying attention due to extremely low IQ or brain damage. That's not to say that every hypnotist can hypnotize you however. The more flexible the hypnotist, the more effective she will be with the largest number of people.

    Hypnosis Myth 4) Hypnosis is something weird that other people do to you

    If you couldn't go into hypnosis, you wouldn't be able to sleep, to learn, or get nervous through 'negative self hypnosis'. (You know when you imagine things going wrong and it makes you feel anxious? Well that's self hypnosis!)

    Hypnosis is simply a deliberate utilization of the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) or dream state. We're not giving people medication here – if it wasn't a natural ability, hypnosis wouldn't work!

    Hypnosis Myth 5) You lose control in hypnosis

    Crazy news stories, stage hypnotists and gossip have created the illusion that you lose control in hypnosis. In fact, when hypnotized, you are relaxed and focused – and able to choose to get up and walk away at any time. You choose to give your attention to the hypnotist, and you can withdraw it at any time.

    If you have been scared of hypnosis in the past, this article has hopefully convinced you to at least give it a try. But remember, ensure what you're getting is the real thing. Visit

    Are You Ready To Stop Smoking with Hypnosis?

    If you have decided you want to stop smoking, you might have heard of various methods including nicotine patches, nicotine chewing gum, acupuncture, prescription drugs and will-power. So, why use hypnosis?

    1. It works immediately.
    2. Hypnosis reprograms your mind at the powerful subconscious level to make the changes permanent.
    3. A hypnosis session is pleasant and deeply relaxing with no side effects.

    Have you considered what your life would be like if you never smoked again?
    Imagine feeling healthy every day if you were no longer inhaling tobacco smoke with all its poisons into your body. Imagine starting the day without a coughing fit. Imagine feeling younger, fitter and more attractive if your body was optimising your health and energy, rather than suffering additional damage every day.

    Imagine how happy and confident you would feel knowing that you had lengthened your life by years, possibly decades, and knowing you had greatly improved your chances of avoiding health problems.

    Your family will thank you for taking responsibility to give you the best chance of a long and healthy life. A friend's husband died of lung cancer after 20 years of smoking, leaving behind an adoring wife and two girls who were not even ten years old. His girls still resent him for continuing to smoke when they begged him to stop and now leaving them so early in their lives.

    Think about the thousands you will save over the years and all the fun things you can do to improve the quality of your life and of your loved ones. Wouldn't you rather put your children through university than smoke your way to an early grave?

    Just imagine ...

    The Fastest Way to Transform Your Life

    There are several ways to stop smoking but many take a lot of time, many have a low success rate and some even have damaging side effects. Nicotine based products might stop you smoking but keep you addicted to nicotine with the possible risk of oral cancer from nicotine chewing gum.

    Hypnotherapy, by contrast, offers a method which enables the smoker to give up smoking immediately, permanently in a deep, relaxing way without any side effects. New Scientist magazine (October 1992) investigated the various stop smoking methods available in a huge study involving 72,000 people and found hypnotherapy to be the most successful.

    Stop Smoking with Hypnotherapy

    The hypnotherapist induces hypnosis which is a simple and relaxing process which everyone can experience and then makes a number of suggestions to you which will allow you to leave smoking behind in the past.

    How It Works

    Every smoker started smoking for a reason, often during their teenage years to "appear big and grown up". Everyone thinks they can stop anytime they want to but often find it is not as easy as they think. So they look at various ways of stopping, usually waste lots of time and money before trying hypnotherapy.

    Hypnotherapy works by accessing the subconscious mind direct because that is where every experience we have ever been through is stored and creates habits, good and bad ones. The subconscious mind does not know any difference between imagination and reality so if you reprogram it with positive outcomes, albeit imagined ones, it will do what is necessary to make them a reality. That is why hypnotherapy works for so many issues, not just stopping smoking.

    Your hypnosis session will reinforce the positive outcomes of becoming and remaining a non-smoker.

    Some people even have unnecessary fears about stopping smoking such as overeating as a substitute and putting on weight. Hypnosis will give positive suggestions to stop that happening. You will not be fighting cravings but rather enjoying the benefits of clean air, unclogged lungs, fresh-smelling clothes.

    Remember that international scientific research by New Scientist reported that hypnotherapy is a much more powerful help than willpower alone, gum, patches and the other methods.

    The average smoker spends around £2000 per year on smoking so stopping smoking will save a fortune over the years. Maybe even enough to buy your home outright. It therefore makes sense to invest a relatively small sum now to stop smoking quickly, either by visiting a qualified and experienced hypnotherapist for personal therapy or download a hypnosis Mp3 to overcome the habit in the comfort of your own home. You can find a download hypnosis Mp3 here or here.

    Fast Phobia Cure: Get Results Within 10 Minutes

    Even now that fact is hard for many people to accept! The truth is though, the Fast Phobia Cure has now been in existence for over twenty years and has been used successfully on 100's of thousands of people.

    From simple Poodle Phobias to more extreme cases such as Vietnam war survivors with horrific traumatic memories. Gone are the months of psychotherapy, reliving pain and spending loads of your hard earned cash.

    I suspect you've probably heard of NLP by now. To keep it simple NLP is a technology that enables people to model human excellence. The original co-creators of NLP, Bandler & Grinder created the Fast Phobia Cure by modelling people who had had phobias and gotten rid of them. NLP states that, "What one person can do, another person can learn to do the same": Modelling.

    So Bandler & Grinder asked these people specific questions to discover what went on in their heads and created the Fast Phobia Cure technique. The first part of the process involves disassociation. That is, you see yourself in the phobic situation
    as if on a movie screen. Just this one step is very useful because it allows you to have feelings about the feelings: Meta Feelings. This enables you to gain useful insights and access more resources.

    The next part of the process involves re-organising the structure of the phobic response: The anchored associations and triggers that make you have the phobic response. The way this is achieved is by imagining the movie being rewound, so you experience everything backwards. This is done very fast utilising the Half Second Rule.

    Doing this process scrambles the phobic associations and re-organises your brains synapses so that you learn to have new responses. The entire technique can be learned and applied in less than 10 minutes.

    Classically the technique is known as the Fast Phobia Cure, however I prefer to call it the Anxiety Removal Machine because it can be used to successfully remove anxious feelings associated with future events and not just phobias.

    I believe many more people need to know about this amazing technique along with other rapid change techniques that utilise the Half Second Rule. There are many people suffering in the world who would be very pleased to learn about techniques that can 'fix them' within 10 minutes!

    Hypnotherapy & Plastic surgery

    Researchers at the Department of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine, the University of Liege, Belgium investigated the benefits of hypnotherapy in assisting local anaesthesia for patients undergoing plastic surgery. 337 patients requiring minor and major plastic surgery requiring local anaesthesia together with conscious intravenous sedation were divided into three groups. The first group received intravenous sedation, the second group received hypnotherapy during which patients achieved an hypnotic trance level, and third group received general relaxation incorporating hypnotherapy without the required hypnotic trance level. Pain scores, anxiety scores and levels of intravenous sedative required were recorded and then compared.

    The results showed that anxiety scores were significantly lower in the hypnotherapy and relaxation groups and the levels of sedative required were also significantly lower in the hypnotherapy and relaxation groups. Furthermore, postoperative vomiting and nausea was only 1.2 per cent in the hypnotherapy group compared to 12.8 per cent in the relaxation group and 26.7 per cent in the intravenous sedation group. The hypnotherapy group also reported higher satisfaction with the anaesthetic procedure and greater surgical comfort.

    The researchers concluded that hypnotherapy as an adjunct sedation procedure to conscious intravenous sedation produced greater relief from pain and anxiety than conventional intravenous sedation, enabled significant reduction in drug sedative requirements and significantly improved patients satisfaction and comfort.

    Tonsils Removed Under Hypnosis

    - Susan Cilliers, Beeld, 2 December 2007

    Johannesburg - A woman's tonsils were removed under hypnosis and without painkillers or anaesthetics at Milpark Hospital last week.

    Liesl van Dreau, 35, from Pretoria was able to eat normally almost immediately after surgery and she recovered so quickly that she was back at work three days later. She didn't use antibiotics or anti-inflammatory tablets and had almost no swelling.

    "I had a sensation of pulling during surgery, but felt very little pain," she said.

    The surgeon, Dr Kishen Dayal, said there was so little bleeding that he used only half a swab to dab the blood. He said,
    "It's the first time I removed tonsils under hypnosis and I was amazed at the result. This opens the way to a range of possibilities, such as doing biopsies under hypnosis in the doctor's rooms rather than an operating theatre. This will save theatre costs and minimise bleeding and the side-effects of drugs."

    Initial caution
    Van Dreau, who works at a publisher, was initially cautious about having her tonsils removed under hypnosis. She is doing a course in hypnotherapy, where she met Dr Ian Lander, an anaesthetist from Milpark Hospital, who also did the course. Lander asked if Dayal would be willing to remove Van Dreau's tonsils under hypnosis.

    "I was doubtful, but agreed to consult with her. After examining her, I decided to go ahead using specific surgical instruments which would minimise bleeding," Dayal said.

    Before surgery Van Dreau had two sessions with Johannesburg hypnotherapist Tom Budge to prepare her.

    The procedure was done in a theatre and Van Dreau's condition was monitored throughout in order to apply anaesthetics should it be necessary.

    Drank Coke in the recovery room
    "It took Tom six minutes to put me under hypnosis. During the 30 minutes of surgery, he told me that I could control the bleeding, that I would not feel any pain and that I was doing well. Afterwards, the whole theatre team applauded."
    Dayal said it was the first time he witnessed an adult tonsil patient drinking Coke in the recovery room.

    Van Dreau was discharged from hospital an hour later - after a procedure which is usually very painful and traumatic for adults.
