To understand how hypnosis helps you stop smoking, let’s examine hypnosis first. It is a state of relaxation and focused concentration during which a person becomes more open to beneficial suggestions. This focused (or trance) state helps people to change unwanted behavior. You are never asleep or unconscious. You are in a natural state of trance. Hypnosis is a means of talking directly to the subconscious mind. When used to quit smoking, hypnotic suggestions are given to the subconscious mind to convey the desire to stop smoking.

The subconscious mind is where all our beliefs, emotions, habits, and addictions live. The reason most people fail to stop smoking is that they try to consciously stop smoking. This approach doesn’t work because our conscious mind is only 10% of our brain-power, and our subconscious mind is 90% of our brain-power. With those statistics, you can see the subconscious always wins.

When you use direct communication with your subconscious mind, your desire to stop smoking becomes much easier and more effective to remain smoke free.

The Keys To Your Success To Be Smoke Free

  • Strong Desire to Quit Smoking.

First and foremost, you must first want to quit for yourself. This doesn’t mean you might want to quit because your spouse or family want you to stop. Those may be reasons you ‘think’ you want to quit, and your family and friends may have your best interests at heart. However, if you want to quit smoking permanently, you must be at that point you are sick and tired of being sick and tired from everything related to smoking.

How can you determine if your motivation is strong enough? On a scale from 1 to 10, ask yourself, “How much do I want to quit smoking”? If your desire and motivation is not at least an “8”, you are not ready to stop.
Your hypnotist cannot make you quit smoking. Ultimately, your success depends on your level of motivation and taking responsibility to quit.

  • High Commitment.

Along with a strong desire to quit, you must be ready to do whatever is necessary to quit smoking. This includes going through any reading or audio materials that your hypnotist may assign for you to complete between appointments.

  • Positive Attitude.

Having a positive attitude changes your beliefs. Believe in yourself and your ability to quit smoking. Expect to succeed, and you will. Hypnosis is a great tool to help make the transition easier. With a trained hypnotist, you can become smoke free without the side effects commonly seen in other methods.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is appropriately named as it does indeed make one very sad…to the point of suicide or homicide in many cases. It is a problem in the brain, related to melatonin and serotonin production. Although the cause is ‘not known’, it seems fairly obvious that lack of sunlight leads to lack of melatonin, which upsets the sleep/wake cycle and messes up all of the hormones of the body. Since hormones are tiny little packets that carry an extremely powerful punch, a lack thereof could become a big problem very quickly.

The basic problem that brings on SAD is lack of sunlight, but it can also occur at the change of seasons when the sudden increase in light shocks the body. For those folks, their neurological system and circadian rhythms are completely awry. The symptoms of SAD are depression, anxiety, withdrawal, lack of energy, excessive sleeping and carbohydrate cravings-which lead to obesity. For those people who live in northern areas, where overcast skies and rain are common for a long time, Seasonal Affective Disorder is quite common. Most people in such areas are aware that using full-spectrum light bulbs can keep the disease at bay. Supplementing with melatonin and the appropriate amino acids can also help chase away those winter blues.

What the mainstream medical mafia (BigMed) is loathe to admit-due to being in bed with BigPharma-is that all pharmaceuticals, including over the counter medications, processed foods, and food additives, plus alcohol, tobacco and recreational drugs, have a tendency to use up serotonin levels in the gut. The intestines are where 95% of our serotonin stores exist-not the brain. Instead of advising people to supplement with the appropriate amino acids, the medical mafia would prefer to put people on SSRI’s (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors), all of which have some pretty nasty side-effects, and none of which actually take care of the cause. Yeah, get’chere SSRI snake oil right here, folks, for the mere cost of your health, happiness and life savings!

With the plethora of light solutions available now, from LED’s to full-spectrum light bulbs (which are actually 92% of sunlight spectrum), plus specific phototherapy units made to treat this disorder, there is no reason for people to have to suffer this debilitating condition. Treatment could be as simple as taking melatonin and using light therapy every day. Naturopathic physicians and holistic MD’s and DO’s are happy to assist patients in finding natural cures for this problem. Look for a doctor who is aware of the neurotransmitter depletion problem as well as how to treat it with the right blend of amino acids.

Winter does not have to be dreaded by sufferers-and their families and friends-in this day and age. Search for the right combination of helpful therapies for your body and mind and then use them as soon as the weather starts to change…and keep using them as long as needed. Take charge of your life and your happiness now. Research all of the latest developments and choose what is best for you; don’t leave it all up to the professionals. It’s your body, your life, and you are the one responsible for what happens to you, so treat yourself with respect…and love.

Night vision devices have been used World War II, but in recent years, laws limiting its use only to the military have been revised, thus allowing civilians its use as long as government policies are observed and proper documentation are acquired. One beneficiary to such revision of laws is the field of science and research whose main specialty is in the world dominated by nighttime creatures. When the sun is down and the night is out, nocturnal creatures come out of their nests, dens, boroughs and caves as nighttime is their time to shine. The silent but bewitching night is not only a time for us humans to rest and sleep but to some nighttime creatures it is a opportunity for them to conduct the usual activities such as searching for and gathering food, tasks that are normally done during the day. It is a time for them to recreate and mingle with other nocturnal animals as they have been accustomed to live under the light of the moon and the stars. Because of their nocturnal nature, studying them at close range proved to be difficult thus only a handful of information and limited studies were available for the public few years back. However due to some changes made on some existing laws, scientists and researchers nowadays are aided by night vision goggles that magnify so that objects being viewed appear closer and illuminate to observe nocturnal activities of animals, insects and even plants that no ordinary eye can do during the night. Because of this breakthrough, where their activities are recorded and later, seen on television, magazines and books, we are transported to their environment for a larger than life experience. Educational programs courtesy of the National Geographic Channel and Discovery Channel made major breakthrough in bringing wildlife into our doorsteps, right in front of us through our television thus, we do not need to travel far just to be with nature. One of the most elusive animals is the Tasmanian Devil found in Tasmania, Australia. The comical, satirical, sneezing, sneering, snarling and insatiable Looney Tunes character is not far from the true Tasmanian Devil as they are notoriously known for their cantankerous and maniacal disposition once threatened by a predator, fight over a meal or even mate. Tasmanian Devils are solitary and nocturnal carnivorous spending their time alone in boroughs emerging only to eat. They have such an insatiable appetite eating anything their teeth lay on consuming even bones, organs and even hair. However, because of the introduction of the Asian dogs and dingoes plus the presence of a disease called devil facial tumor disease, their survival is greatly threatened and facing extinction. With the aid of night vision goggles, researchers and animal experts are able to observe the devils’ activities formulating solutions to prevent their extinction.

The benefits brought by the invention of night vision goggles does not limit to military activities such as maintaining safety and security but also extended its use for the benefit of nature, wildlife and for the human population as well.

The spinal column is the mainframe of the human musculoskeletal system. Every limb, the rib cage, and the pelvic girdle are supported by it. Being the very back-bone of existence, any pain occurring in it should in no way be ignored. The back should be meticulously taken care of.

Gout Relief Tips

Gout is one of the extremely excruciating forms of arthritis. It happens when there is excessive uric acid level in the body. The build-up of uric acid can result to uric acid crystal deposits in joints, deposits of uric acid or the so-called tophi that appear like lumps under the skin, and kidney stones from uric acid crystals in the renal system.

Gout attacks may be possibly brought about by traumatic events, drugs, alcohol, or another underlying medical conditions. Initial attacks are usually healed in a few days despite absence of treatment. To help prevent occurrence of gout flares and attacks, take the gout medications that the doctor prescribed. However, some natural gout treatment can be done by patients alongside gout medication therapy.

First, it is important to maintain a healthy weight, as gout is highly associated with obesity. You may need to exercise regularly, and maintain healthy diet to achieve you ideal weight. Low caloric and fat diet required in gout patients also lead to maintaining desirable weight, reducing gout attacks. Also, reduction of meat and seafood is recommended. Ask your doctor or dietician about the desirable foods for you condition. Maintain healthy water and fluid intake. This is to help wash off the uric acid the body. Also, kidney stones are less likely to form with increased fluid intake.

Alcohol should be eliminated as it exacerbates and worsens gout. People who drink regularly are more likely to develop gout than those who do not. As with alcohol, particular types of meat like organ meats and fish may contain high levels of purines, the original forms or uric acid. Spinach and peas are vegetables high in purine. Avoid taking drugs that are not prescribed, especially diuretics and water-related drugs which can possibly affect the excretion of the accumulated uric acid. These drugs are usually used in treatment of hypertension. Thus, make sure you consult the doctor, and inform him of all other medications that you are currently taking.

Also, in dealing with gout flares, here are some things you can do. First is to avoid any pressure on the affected joint. Resting the affected part alleviates any pain caused by tension to the joint. This is done by immobilizing the joint. The lesser the movement, the alleviation from pain is increased. Keeping the area elevated at all times may be advisable. By the virtue of gravity, inflammation is reduced due to the lessened blood supply in the area. You may also take over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin or ibuprofen. You may need to avoid doing any cold or hot compresses. The contradictions of the therapeutic effects of both compresses may cause more insult to the injury. Wearing comfortable clothing and shoes will allow room for the affected areas, especially if the toes are affected. Tight shoes may worsen the symptom condition associated with gout.

Lying down, keeping the area elevated, wearing loose clothes and shoes and even practicing breathing exercises can help reduce the pain you may be feeling from gout. Try these measures at home. If the symptoms of gout are not relieved using non-prescription measures, schedule an appointment with your doctor for additional gout treatment methods.

Here are some great tips and pointers to make you sleep better every night! Getting a good night’s sleep is a challenge for many of us. Many people resort to medications! Indeed, some people “self-medicate” with alcohol!

Medications like Ambien are not good for you. And you can become over-dependent on them, if not addicted. Also, some of the ingredients tend to distort your perception of time, so even though you think you fell asleep faster that may not be the case. Personally, I hate to use medications for sleep. I always wonder what would happen if there was an emergency at home with one of the kids, or a fire or earthquake. I don’t want to be in a drugged state when dealing with something like that!

And for those who claim that they get a great night’s sleep after alcohol, that is not the case. You may wake up feeling like you slept deeply but it’s the wrong kind of rest. Do you really feel refreshed and full of energy the next day? I don’t think so!

If you want to sleep better there are certain things you need to address.

Tips For How To Sleep Better

First: You cannot make yourself go to sleep. Your brain will go to sleep when it wants to. So lying there trying to fall asleep is a fool’s game. If you find that you are not falling asleep, get up and do some menial chores. Wash the dishes or sort through the mail. Even try some light reading, but not in bed. If you are not falling asleep you should not be in the bedroom. You need your brain to associate the bedroom only with sleep!
Sleepwell pills
Second: You need to realize that for a normal person the body temperature drops by about four degrees when they are sleeping. That is one of the reasons why sleep is associated with night time. It’s cooler then usually. People with insomnia do not experience the same body temperature swings. Because their body temperature doesn’t rise as much, they don’t feel invigorated in the morning and they don’t fall asleep in the evening.

There are natural strategies for getting your body temperature to rise. Take a brink walk in the morning for 30 minutes or so. This will raise your body temperature and you will be energized during the day. Raising the body temperature during the day and causing it to fall in the evening is a great strategy for how to sleep better.

Finally: The most important tip is not to focus on your insomnia. It’s a case of being careful what you ask for. If you constantly tell yourself that you are an insomniac and can’t sleep what do you think is going to happen. It certainly is not a good strategy for how to sleep better!

ADHD, also commonly known as ADD or Attention Deficit Disorder, is a medical condition which includes two components – the inability to pay attention and the difficulty of focusing on a task. It is often impossible for a person with ADHD to stay still for any long period of time. Many individuals with ADHD also do things on impulse – they act without thinking things over. Additional symptoms associated with ADHD are anxiety or depression, negative thoughts, and difficulty sleeping. ADHD affects children, adolescents and adults. There is still no known cure for ADHD but, medication and behavioral therapy prescribed for people with ADHD has been widely effective.

Ideally, ADD and ADHD diets help the brain to function better and reduce symptoms such as agitation or lack of concentration. A diet plan can include the foods one normally eat and supplements one can regularly take. The diet plan is usually categorized into overall, supplemental and elimination diets.

The overall nutritional plan for those suffering from ADHD includes the foods the patient eats on a daily basis. However, it is important to decide whether or not the overall diet is beneficial or detrimental to the ADHD condition. This is important because some foods are thought to make ADHD worse, while a patient may not be eating enough of the food that can actually help his or her ADHD symptoms. TO be exact, ADHD patients must take in more foods rich in protein, Omega-3 fatty acids, and complex carbohydrates; and less in foods with simple carbohydrates. Protein is known to improve focus and concentration and helps the ADHD medications to take effect more efficiently. Complex carbohydrates found in most vegetables and fruits aids in sleeping. Omega-3 fatty acids found in certain types of fishes found in cold waters are also highly beneficial in ADHD management. On the other hand, simple carbohydrates in candies, white sugar, rice and flour should be eliminated in the diet.

Supplementation diets for ADHD include the addition of vitamins, minerals and nutrients to fill the deficiencies in the diet to help improve symptoms of ADHD. There is an assumption that the nutritional components that the body needs is lacking in the diet of most ADHD patients. Studies show that all people with ADHD should take 100% of vitamin and mineral supplement every day. Many children, teenagers and adults do not eat a balanced diet, especially when they are running around trying to make it through the activities of the day. ADHD and their causes can differ from person to person. However it is important to know that these supplements can actually make symptoms worse is a small amount of people with ADHD so working closely with the physician before considering any additional supplements is extremely necessary.

In the elimination ADHD diet, there is the removal of foods or ingredients that are thought of as contributory factors to the development of the symptoms of ADHD. It is assumed that a patient may be eating an unhealthy diet, which causes worsening of the symptoms of ADHD. In The elimination diet, one will establish a food or ingredient that may be causing the symptoms of ADHD. One can then avoid eating anything containing the substance. If ADHD symptoms disappear then the patient knows to no longer include that particular food into their diet to prevent any further problems.
