New Years Resolutions

We all should set goals but I found even myself stopping short to reach a goal because I set unrealistic expectations on myself.  You know like ..” I have not exercised in over 6 months but starting tomorrow I will get up early and go run a mile”

 We should encourage ourselves and others to set Realistic Goals so we stay on track … like maybe walk until I feel tired or a winded. Then increase it a little each day untill you reached your goal.  Then you can go beyond your goal.


Always keep in mind that a setback is a set up for a come back!  Right!

Can Hypnosis Work For Alcoholism

Hypnosis is the use of suggestions to change behaviors or thinking patterns.  The use of hypnosis for alcoholism started several decades ago.  The results of hypnotism are mixed and therefore it is not a standard form of treatment.  In order for hypnosis to work properly the person must have an open mind and must be willing to make the changes necessary in their life.

Hypnosis is used successfully with many types of addictive behaviors including smoking and drug use.  To start with a good hypnosis therapy requires several or more sessions to be successful.  A good hypnotist will start with a complete and thorough history before beginning the treatments.

This personal history helps the hypnotist to better understand the person and their thoughts and motives.  When applied properly, hypnosis can be very successful.

The hypnosis sessions themselves usually last anywhere from 40 to 90 minutes each, and  unlike popular belief a person who is hypnotized cannot do whatever they are told.  In fact, they are not totally “under” but instead are in a completely relaxed and open state of mind.  The mind is then open to suggestions.  The hypnotist uses several relaxation methods to bring the person to this receptive state.

Relaxation techniques include breathing exercises that help the person become calm and relaxed.  Soft music may be playing during the session.  The hypnotist then talks to the person.  Often they use a script that is designed specifically for use with their problem – in this case alcohol dependency.

A person must be receptive to the hypnosis treatment in order for it to work.  Good hypnosis treatment may take several treatments to see results.  Hypnosis often uses everyday things to help the person overcome their problem.  For example, the hypnotist may use the suggestion of a red car.  Every time you see a red car you repeat to yourself that you will not drink.  This reinforcement helps to keep the therapy going between sessions.

Hypnosis works by changing the way a person thinks.  Instead of instantly thinking that a drink will help calm them down they will learn to replace this with other more productive thoughts.  Eventually the old thought patterns are abandoned and new patterns are put in their place.

Results of hypnosis treatments vary greatly.  The results are often dependant on the severity of the alcohol problem, the length of time the person has had the dependency and the willingness of the person to want to change.

Hypnosis In Medicine

Hypnosis In Medicine

Medical Editor: Melissa Conrad Stöppler, MD

The role of hypnosis in medicine has been evolving over the last 100 years. Currently, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the United States is funding clinical trials of complementary and alternative medicine. Hypnosis in medicine has been one of the focuses of this funding effort.

Hypnosis in contemporary medicine was reviewed by James H. Stewart, M. D., of the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, (Mayo Clin. Proc 105; 80 (4): 511-524). In this review, Dr. Stewart highlighted basic concepts of hypnosis and reviewed the results of many clinical trials of hypnosis in treating a variety of medical conditions.

Dr. Stewart noted that hypnosis does not involve a process of simply following instructions. Rather, it is an actual change in the perception of the brain as demonstrated by brain tests while people are undergoing hypnosis. Studies have shown that hypnosis does not act as a placebo and is not a state of sleep.

Dr. Stewart also noted that modern hypnotism was introduced by the Austrian physician, Franz Anton Mesmer, who is said to have brought what was referred to as “animal magnetism” to France in 1778. Hypnotism came to be called “Mesmerism” and was soon discredited as fraudulent. Hypnosis as a method of psychoanalysis evolved in the 20th century. Over the past 50 years, many studies have demonstrated the potential of hypnosis as an adjunctive treatment for a variety of conditions.

In reviewing studies of hypnosis treatments by using a Medline database, Dr. Stewart found that hypnosis has had reported benefits in treating:

Hypnosis has also been reported as being successful in the treatment of pain associated with bone marrow transplantation, nausea and vomiting as a result of chemotherapy for cancer treatment, and anesthesia for liver biopsy,upper GI endoscopy, and colonoscopy.

It should be noted, as mentioned in Dr. Stewart’s review, that many of the diseases and conditions for which hypnosis has been reported to be beneficial can only be partially treated by the therapies and medicines currently available. It therefore seems that since hypnosis affords a relatively harmless treatment option, its use as a complementary treatment should be further explored by doctors and other health care providers.
