Pre-Surgery Hypnosis

Take surgery, for example, there are so many minimally invasive technologies available so the huge scars of former operations are less visible. But when you are advised about the need for a surgery and everything leading up to it, the stress and anxiety begin immediately. How does medicine handle this? Why, a pill, of course. And it’s more drugs from there to the finish.

But what if you could mediate your own handling of an operation from diagnosis through the actual surgery to recuperation?

Well, you have that possibility with hypnotherapy.

Scientists have already determined that 95% of everything we know, do, and react to is in our subconscious mind. The conscious mind is only 5%. That’s a huge difference and it’s a no-brainer to engage with the subconscious in hypnosis as an informed and powerful participant in your life.

When you think about it, it’s the subconscious that is …

Autism and Cord Blood

Many Americans have been resorting to this to heal ASD in their child. The brand-new U.S clinical trial is said to be the very first to get U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s approval. Administered and managed by Dr. Michael Chez, the Director of Paediatric Neurology, Sutter Medical Center, a team of researchers sometime back had published the outcome of a Phase II Clinical Trial that looked into the effectiveness and security of autologous umbilical cord blood cells for autistic children that deployed a placebo-managed, double-blind design. Back in 2017, these medical researchers at Duke University also published a Phase I security trial assessing autologous umbilical cord blood in autistic children. The emphasis on cord blood cells being a potential cellular therapy accompanied with favourable findings from past clinical studies, promises a brighter future in treating ASD. CBR in its initiative to explore the potential of stem cells has offered institutional …

Energy Safety and Troubleshooting

It’s important to remember to give yourself space for some of this energy to manifest and be released. I’ll occasionally go for a drive and just start crying for no apparent reason, which can be disturbing if you don’t understand that it’s just an energy outlet. I also make it a point to laugh a lot, work out a lot and even occasionally go for a drive and curse at everyone I know (on a mountain back road in the privacy of the vehicle).

We tend to connect emotional reactions to the people in our lives, or events that happen, and this is just not always the case!

Sometimes it’s the reverse, the event happens because we need a release and subconsciously we were creating a catalyst (an argument with a spouse for instance) to allow that release.

Taking more control of how you release these energies can have a …

Communicating With Dementia

  • Assist With Toileting Needs- A person with dementia may have trouble communicating their bladder is full or that they are constipated. Assisting them with a regular toileting schedule can ensure this isn’t the cause of agitation. Simply asking them if they need to go can often trigger them to remember to use the bathroom.
  • Check Pain Level- Pain is often the cause of agitation and behavior issues for someone suffering from dementia. You may ask them if they’re in pain, and many times they will say “No.” But if you notice grimacing or rubbing a joint or their stomach, often times they are in pain. It can be almost impossible to communicate with a dementia patient who is pain. It is important to treat this pain appropriately with medications, rest, or various other methods.
  • Check Their Hunger- A person with dementia may not always know they’re hungry, or they may

Types of Fidgets for Children With ADHD

Calming

A common issue with children that have ADHD is not being able to settle. This means they are less able to stay focused on something that is taking place in front of them. Fidget toys of this nature are intended to mold, twist or bend into different shapes. Other items that can be a calming influence include a weighted lap pad, a coiled bracelet, plastic nuts and bolts, or a fuzzy pipe cleaner.

Alerting

Many children with ADHD benefit from handling something that has a light, color, or noise to help with staying focused. A great toy to give the desired stimulation includes colored puzzles that easily snap together, pull apart, bend or twist. Other options include the color-changing light-up balls and spinning tops.

This type of toy may be a bit disruptive for the classroom environment, so its use may be limited to time in the home. It …

Importance of Gratitude

I recently entered gratitude into a search on Google and it returned 109,000,000 results, and I noticed a disturbing trend. Based on the top links that came back it appears that many people are using gratitude for selfish aims. Among the top links that came back on page one in my search were: “The 31 Benefits of Gratitude You Didn’t Know About,” “Can Gratitude Make Millennials More Successful?” and “7 Surprising Health Benefits of Gratitude.”

In my experience, the only genuine practice of gratitude is when it is done to enrich others. In fact, in my regular practice of gratitude I specifically ask the recipient not to acknowledge it, but rather, if they feel compelled to respond, to send a similar message of gratitude to someone in their life OTHER THAN ME!

I believe that expressing gratitude for selfish reasons will eventually backfire in the same way I see general …

Truth Behind Calories

Less calories are better

  • Just because there are less calories in a particular food, does not mean that it is necessarily better for you or your diet. Often, less nutritious foods will have less calories, but will also have less nutrients.
  • Low calorie foods can also leave you feeling hungry and empty. This will ultimately lead you to having more cravings for unhealthy foods.

Zero calorie drinks are good for dieting

  • Just because a drink does not contain any calories, does not mean that it will not have any effect on your body. Often, zero calorie drinks will contain carbohydrates, which are processed by your body and, if not used, stored as fat.
  • When a flavored beverage has zero calories, it most likely has artificial colors, flavors and preservatives that can be worse for you than consuming a full-calorie drink. Your body cannot process most artificial sweeteners and they are
