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.

Hypnotherapy to Enhance your Wellbeing

Learn how you can transform your relationship with food, increase your energy, feel more confident, reduce your anxiety and learn to control any situation rather than let it control you.

Hypnotherapy is guided trance-like state of focus and concentration achieved with the help of a hypnotherapist. This trance-like state is similar to being completely absorbed in a book, movie, music, or one’s own thoughts.  In this deeply realxed state, clients can turn their attention completely inward to find and utilize the natural resources deep within themselves that can help them make changes or regain control in certain areas of their life.

When It’s Used

Hypnotherapy can be used to treat anxiety, phobias, smoking, undesirable spontaneous behaviors, and bad habits. It can be used to help improve sleep, communication, and relationship issues. Hypnotherapy can aid in pain management and help resolve conditions such as digestive disorders, skin issues, and gastrointestinal issues.

A Stanford psychiatrist saying hypnosis works:
“We can teach people how to manage pain and anxiety, ” says David Spiegel, a psychiatrist and director of the Center for Health and Stress at Stanford University who has studied hypnosis for 40 years.

“Two studies from Sweden found that one hour a week of hypnotherapy for 12 weeks eased symptoms of irritable-bowel syndrome in 40% of patients (compared with 12% in a control group) and that the positive effects can last as long as seven years.”

Essential Oils

Choosing Essential Oils

I absolutley LOVE essential oils, but sadly not all essential oils are created equal.

Each step in the creation process important in order to ensure a pure, high-quality essential oil. From farming and sourcing the plants, flowers, and herbs, to actually distilling the essential oils and then bottling and storing the final product, you want to be sure you’re buying essential oils from a company which has the highest standards for purity and quality.

Many essential oils on the market have added synthetic ingredients, or the oil is extracted using chemical processes. While these oils may still smell nice, their healing, well-being, and vibrational properties are significantly diminished if not eliminated entirely.

Why I Use Neals’ Yard Organic Essential Oils

Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic Essential Oils are the oils I personally use and recommend. They are therapeutic-grade oils that are pure and while there are other essential oil companies that claim the same purity, I personally love that NYRO  essential oils are mindful of protecting the planet.  Many companies are not ethically sourcing their ingredients nor are they concerned with sustainability of the soil, plants and areas where they harvest their oils.

NYRO  are directly involved in the farming, sourcing, low-temperature chemical free distilling, bottling, storing and shipping. Their high level of care in each step of the process ensures the highest quality product. Click here to read more
