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.

Stress – Just as Unhealthy as Junk Food

HIGH LEVELS OF STRESS = ILL HEALTH

How do you cope with stress?  Do you cope with stress?  Or do you feel stressed out and overwhelmed?  Some amount of stress is healthy, but excessive stress, left untreated, can lead to anxiety and illness.  Too much stress makes you at best ineffective, and at worst physically ill.

Reducing stress is one thing that you can do to dramatically improve your health.  It is the largest single risk factor for physical health and psychological well-being.  Stress interferes with sleep and it affects our behaviour and our ability to regulate our emotions.  It contributes to high blood pressure, increased body fat, elevated blood sugar and high cholesterol.  Mood swings, depression, fatigue and insomnia – these are just some of the affects of stress which in the long term lead to immune suppression = ill health.  90% of all ill health has a stress/ emotional component to it.

A good way to reduce stress is to reduce cortisol (the stress hormone) :

  • eliminating caffeine,
  • increasing the length and depth of sleep,
  • exercising regularly,
  • mediating,
  • getting the correct nutrients
  • Drinking enough water and
  • One of the most effective ways is via hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy is a fantastic way to relieve stress, increase happiness and improve sleep, this can be done a one to one session which is very effective but hypnosis audio recordings work just as well – Daily listening is recommended and the more you listen to the audio the more the message will become part of your life.

Client Testimonial: Very happy with the hypnotherapy sessions I have had with Kerry. It is a very calming experience and I quickly felt a shift in my feelings and attitude to a difficult situation in my life, which has enabled me to deal with it in a different way. I have also had some pain relief for a chronic issue I have, which has helped with my sleep as well. Cannot recommend Kerry highly enough!

Toxins and Health

Did you know that women absorb an estimated five pounds of chemicals a year just from the makeup they use!

This toxicity adds to the toxic burden placed on our bodies and is one of the reasons at Kerry’s Natural Health Solutions that we recommend cleansing with the seasons. As we move from autumn into winter it is an ideal time to cleanse to prepare the body for winter, you know how you feel a little more sluggish in the winter, as the days get colder and darker A cleanse helps to boost your energy, put that spring in your step and keep you active and dancing all winter long, avoiding the dreaded winter weight gain!

We face numerous problems with toxins in our environment and it becomes very important that we support the body as it takes extra nutrients to help break down these toxins and eliminate them from the system, all the additional toxins we’re exposed to put an extra burden on the body’s nutrient reserves and when we are bundled up during the winter and not getting enough sunlight and fresh air there is an added burden on the body. 

There are two kinds of toxins the body has to eliminate:
