mental HEALTH & gut HEALTH : the connection

Thursday 10th of October was Mental Health Day, but in fact everyday should be Mental health Day because our mental health is just as important as our physical health.  Did you know that problems with mental health are one of the primary causes of the overall disease burden worldwide. 

The primary method of treatment for depression is serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), however they are not effective in all individuals, success rates are only about one in three and it is not a long term solution.

Enter…… the gut.  Hopefully,  it comes as no surprise that there is a connection between the gut and the brain but you might be less familiar with the scientific studies which are now showing that inflammation is the major driving factor of depression and this inflammation starts in the gut.  Obesity, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis all of these and many other illnesses are linked to inflammation in the body and they all have neurological consequences.  The vagus nerve connects the brain with several parts of the gut, including the stomach, pancreas and intestines – making the gut a very influential path to the brain and when things go wrong, this is a channel for feelings of depression and anxiety.

The balance of the gut microbiome is central to our internal ecosystem impacting our digestion, our immune system and our brain health just to name a few functions in the body that are impacted.  When there is an imbalance this can bring about even more inflammation in the brain….. so with dysregulation of the microbiome and subsequent inflammation as a clear driving factor to depressive symptoms, healing the gut to managing these symptoms has become crucial.

Hypnosis for dementia

With hypnosis, people with dementia CAN improvement their quality of life.

Hypnotherapy for Dementia

I recently came across a study about hypnosis for dementia, which as a Hyonotherapist and Hynotherpay Instructor I found very interesting. This study was done in the UK by Dr. Dan Nightingale and Dr. Simon Duff. They found that people living with dementia who had received hypnosis therapy showed an improvement in concentration, memory and socialization compared to the other two treatment groups. Relaxation, motivation and daily living activities also improved with the use of hypnosis. The impressive part of this is the improvements continued in a follow up study 12 months after the hypnosis sessions had concluded.

Alternative Approaches to Supporting Individuals With Dementia

Enhancing Quality of Life Through Hypnosis

By Simon Duff, PhD and Daniel Nightingale, PhD

The data from this study supports previous work indicating that individuals with dementia can be hypnotized. Furthermore, it adds to the increasing body of empirical data demonstrating the important contribution hypnosis can make in improving the QOL (quality of life) of individuals with dementia. Importantly, although it may seem obvious, it is crucial to differentiate between improving the psychosocial QOL of persons with dementia and impacting upon the process of dementia. In the particular environment of this study, hypnosis has demonstrated an ability to play a role in changing particular aspects of QOL.This implies that there is a subjective, cognitive component to the common behavioral changes associated with dementia that impact QOL in addition to those changes produced by the biological process of dementia.We suggest that it is through this subjective component that hypnosis impacts QOL, which leads to the prediction that it should be possible to both differentiate and plan interventions for the objective, biological effects of dementia and the subjective, psychological effects independently

The study showed that over a 9 month period, hypnosis helped people with dementia to improve:

  • concentration
  • relaxation
  • motivation
  • improve activities for daily living
  • immediate memory
  • memory of significant events
  • socialization
  • overall quality of life

Living well with dementia is possible and people living with dementia and their caregivers can benefit from hypnosis to help them to have a better quality of life.

Hypnosis vs. Meditation

Hypnosis and meditation are both powerful ways to make your life amazing and, both have their place.

I love Meditation, it has been around for thousands of years and it really changed my life! Popular fitness and wellness practices include meditation more and more particulary practices such as Yoga. Even famous company’s suach as Google have places for staff to meditate and even neuroscientists are promoting meditation now.

Millions of people benefit from meditation in its many forms, that includes me and and I believe that is an amazing tool and I know it will continue to help people.

Thousands of people around the world are also using hypnosis to change their lives in dramatic ways. They stop smoking, lose weigh, reduce and get rid of stress and improve their health. It is incredible how powerful hypnosis is and can can help you change your life today.

Hypnosis Can Change Your Life

I hve found that hypnosis is a powerful tool to change your life, this is becasue it is so easy and changes can happen instantly. Seeing that happen has been amazing – as one of mentor’s says – It is not Magic but it can be Magical.

I am a qualified Hypnotherapist and Meditation Teracher and practice both hypnosis and meditation daily myself and I truly believe that there is a place in this world for both hypnosis and meditation. They don’t need to be at odds at all, we need all the #selfcare we can get.

Meditation andHypnosis are different tools for different purposes for different people and like all useful tools, you should pick the tool that works for you and use it when you need it, even if that is now.

Happy Heart Health Month

I’m raising money for the British Heart Foundation’s and I’d be so grateful for your support.  I’ve lost many special friends to heart and circulatory disease and sadly every day hundreds of people still lose their lives.  I have been inspired by my client’s who have either had heart attacks and are now working on reducing their ongoing risk or just want to prevent and reduce their risks to heart disease.

In the U.K. alone, about 348,000 people die of cardiovascular disease.
Every 7 minutes someone in the U.K. will have a heart attack.

Together, we can make small changes every day to help prevent heart
disease. My aim is to raise awareness of this disease, and  to celebrate the heart and its amazing role in the body. After all, it is your body’s hardest working muscle. Your heart deserves special care and attention!

My pledge is to raise awareness about heart disease and its effects.

Every pound helps so please give what you can to help me hit my target.

Thank You!
