The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 2015 survey reported¬†in the U.S. (1) –¬†

  • 37.9%¬†of adults age 20 years and over are¬†obese (2013-2014)
  • 70.7% ¬†adults age 20 years and over with overweight, including obesity (2013-2014)

Weight loss and weight management can be complex. A collaborative approach may offer best outcomes. Talk to your physician about healthy ways to reduce and manage weight. If you have trouble getting started or staying focused and motivated on healthy eating and exercise behaviors, hypnosis may be a helpful adjunct. 

The American Psychology Association Defines Hypnosis as¬†–¬†¬†‚ÄúA state of consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness characterized by an enhanced capacity for response to suggestion.‚ÄĚ (2)

Hypnosis as Adjunctive Therapy for Healthy Weight РCombined with conventional nutritional counseling and/or cognitive behavioral therapy, hypnosis may make it easer for you to attain and maintain a healthy weight. (3)

Complementary Therapies for Obesity –¬†“Although many complementary therapies are promoted for the treatment of obesity, few are truly therapeutic. Evidence suggests acupuncture, and hypnosis are the only evidence-based complementary therapies for the treatment of obesity, and, at best, these should be used as adjuncts to the more conventional therapies of calorie restriction and exercise.” (4)

Are You Seeing Red?

Promoting Optimal Wellness for Body, Mind and Spirit

Promoting Optimal Wellness for Body, Mind and Spirit

With yesterday’s snow storm you may not have gotten out much, but if you had you may¬†have noticed a lot of women¬†wearing red for National Red Dress Day.¬†


Heart disease remains the #1 Killer of men and women world-wide. Heart (cardiovascular) disease includes high blood pressure, heart attack (myocardial infarction,) abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia,) congestive heart failure (CHF,) stroke (cerebrovascular disease) and more.

February is ‘National Heart Month.’ Wear¬†red this month to help bring awareness to heart disease, risk factors, and prevention. ‘Get your red on’ all month-long.

Recognize Warning Signs¬†of a Heart Attack. Symptoms of a heart attack can be different in men and women¬†(more subtle at times)¬†and may include –

  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Pain in the upper body such as the neck, jaw, upper back, or arms
  • A¬†squeezing feeling or tightness in the chest
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Sweating
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Dizziness or light-headedness

If you are experiencing symptoms of a heart attack, call 9-1-1¬†immediately.¬†Don’t delay. Don’t drive yourself to the hospital. ¬†As they say – “Time is heart.” “Time is brain.” This means that the faster you act, the better you heart and brain¬†function can be preserved.

The Good News РHeart disease is largely preventable and controlled. Ask your doctor about your risk factors, prevention and treatment. In the meantime, take steps for a healthier you!

  • Stop smoking.
  • Manage blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes and stress.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Eat healthily.
  • Avoid or moderate use of alcohol.
