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.

NLP Techniques Masterclass MP3 Download

I have just received information of a complete NLP Masterclass available CDs or MP3 download with a very special offer.

* If you are new to NLP then this programme is an opportunity to witness and experience the power of NLP first-hand. In The NLP Techniques Masterclass will cover a relatively small number of techniques so that you can really learn them in depth and develop real confidence using them. Skills such as the Fast Phobia Cure and the Allergy Cure.

* If you are familiar with NLP then this programme will help you raise your competence with NLP to the point where you can use the techniques confidently on yourself and with other people to create rapid change. People who have done NLP training before will derive enormous benefit from exploring key techniques and skills more thoroughly than they may already have.

* Therapeutic workers and psychotherapists. The mental health sector is increasingly under pressure and demand for quick results. This course will give those people a chance to take a more eclectic approach to change-work. NLP is based on what works and experience shows that using these ideas can often yield faster results than conventional approaches to therapy and change.

* Coaching and personal development professionals will learn approaches to communication and change that will enable them to work more effectively with clients.

* People who have trained as practitioners or master practitioners, but want more exposure and practice so they can get a real sense of confidence with the techniques
