Two nurses in Rushden, Ann Woodcock and Jenny Embling, have gone beyond conventional nursing of late and are now ready to launch a program where they are going to use hypnotherapy to help people lose weight.They have designed a course where Miss Embling is going to give instruction on healthy eating and exercise, whilst Mrs. Woodcock is going to follow up with hypnosis to help people achieve their ideal weight.
They have recently given a statement to the Evening Telegraph in which they testify to the success of this combination between a traditional and a novel approach to help people. The reason, they claim, this combination works so well is because hypnotherapy can get to the crucial connection between the mind and body in such a way as to have the mind succeed with the body where the body alone would not be able to do so.
An essential lesson that the mind learns under hypnosis is that food is energy and not a reward for good behavior. In other words, eating is an essential survival technique. Yes, it can be a pleasurable activity in and of itself, but that’s just icing on the proverbial cake.
Further evidence for the success of complementary therapies is provided for us by another pair of professionals, Tracy Jones and Carolyn Arnold. They are both hypnotherapists and they decided to try a model approach. They decided to see if they could hypnotically influence each other’s behavior by the use of Skype and the Internet. This trial was necessitated by the fact that they live more than a hundred miles from each other. Tracy Jones was interested in using hypnotherapy to help women with fertility issues after her own problems with that earlier in her life. Carolyn Arnold and she have now been able to help each other lose weight by connecting through the use of Skype. They are now convinced that this method can work, and they are now going to start using it with their respective patients.
A staggering 40 per cent of pregnant women may be smoking while trying to carry their babies to term. The North Lincolnshire Council has funded an anti-smoking campaign in Scunthorpe for pregnant women who smoke to the tune of £15,000. This fund is going to pay the salary and cover the other costs entailed by the part-time worker who is going to provide the essential hypnotherapy to pregnant women who wish to give up smoking for their own as well as for the sake of their unborn children.
It is clear that hypnotherapy added to traditional treatments can increase the rate of success for women who want to lose weight or have fertility issues or are trying to quit smoking during pregnancy.Instead of getting rid of the old (traditional treatment), this is a case where the new (hypnotherapy) added to the old gives us a combination that delivers results with surprising efficiency and a high rate of success.
This is indeed a promising development: combining the old with the new can, it appears, work wonders in the present. And this should be the case for the future as well.
