Hello, everybody. I had a patient whom is a sex addict. He told me he loves his wife and would't want to hust her ever. But he want't able to control it. When he looks at a beautiful woman, he just "Need" to have sex with her.


 So, i treated him this way. I said: "Sir, this is anxiety, probably is created by a trauma, a bad moment, guilt, or something else. Lets look for it". And he seemed very worried and shamed of him.


 I started doing a regression when he had a lot of lust, and bring him back remembering that feeling. Then I asked him to anchor that feeling for his wife. Then I made a regression to the moment when he discovered he was in love with her. I asked him to make that feeling grow, and to put his actual face of his wife, on the wife in that moment (Im talking about the age effects). And asked him to feel that pure love for her every time he sees her, and at the same time, in sex, to have a better control over his body and enjoy making her enjoy).


 Then I asked him to forgive himself for all the past, and every person whom ever hurt him somehow (This, trying to remove anxiety or traumas), and the to put himself in a room full of white and red stickers (This is a Gerald Kein technique). The white ones are good moments and the red ones are bad moments. So, I asked him to get rid of all those red stickers and keep just the good memories in the room.


 When we finished, I asked him to go one year in the future and asked him how has his relationship with his wife been. And he said way better, and he doesn't have any desire for any other woman.


 Please give me your opinion. What Should have I done better somehow? Or did I use the wrong technique? Thank you! :)

Study:Ten Consecutive Days of Imagery Reduce Clinical Depression

The Coimbra Nursing School in Coimbra, Portugal and the University of Akron’s College of Nursing reported on the use of guided imagery intervention for decreasing depression, anxiety, and stress and increasing comfort in psychiatric inpatients with depressive disorders.

Sixty short-term hospitalized patients suffering from depression, were selected. The group listened to a guided imagery compact disk once a day for 10 days.

The Psychiatric Inpatients Comfort Scale and the Depression, Anxiety, and Stress Scales (DASS-21) were self-administered at two time points: prior to the intervention (T1) and 10 days later (T2). Comfort and DASS-21 were also assessed in the usual care group at T1 and T2.

It was revealed that the treatment group had significantly improved comfort and decreased depression, anxiety, and stress over time.

In todays MesotheliomaHelp.net:

Hypnosis Can Be Useful for Pain Management in Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma can be a painful cancer. Over half of the pleural mesothelioma patients experience pain in the chest which can be intense and severe enough to require narcotics to alleviate the pain and discomfort.

Not willing to take any more drugs, some mesothelioma patients are turning to hypnosis as a way to manage their pain. Hypnosis, once shunned by the medical profession, is becoming more popular in clinical settings helping people stop smoking, lose weight, and now, deal with pain.

Hpynotherapy, when performed by a trained specialist, can be a powerful and effective procedure. A hypnotist brings a patient to a state of high concentration allowing him to have a strict focus. The person then "projects" himself to another place or state where he can block pain awareness or substitute other sensations for painful ones.

Hypnosis is considered an unconventional therapy and is often used with other holistic treatments including yoga and meditation. Hypnosis is not effective for everyone.

The effects of hypnosis can be seen on brain scans.

English researchers studied the effects of hypnosis with brain scans. They found that hypnotized volunteers had decreased activity in the parts of the brain that are associated with daydreaming or allowing the mind to wander. However, the same effect wasn't seen in people who weren't susceptible to being hypnotized,

"This shows that the changes were due to hypnosis and not just simple relaxation. Our study shows hypnosis is real," said study leader Dr William McGeown, a lecturer in the department of psychology at Hull University.

The study appears in the journal Consciousness and Cognition.

The findings show that hypnosis can work by "priming" a person to respond more effectively to suggestions but does not prove that people being hypnotized are in an actual "trance," Dr. Michael Heap, a clinical forensic psychologist in Sheffield, told BBC News.

I just needed to share this email that I received this morning. There is nothing like the feeling of helping my students.

Hi Seth-Deborah,

Thank you so much for the wonderful telecourse you are teaching I can't
say enough about this course.

The content is relevant, well organized, current, accurate and great
information to help me best serve my clients. The fact that I can learn in
the comfort of my own home saves me lots of precious time and money.

I love to listen to your voice. You convey the information in clearly and
you stay on track.

In the past I have struggled to find classes that are really worth my time
and money. You are the answer to my prayers. I am a little embarrassed to
admit how little I have done to stay on top in this field only because of
past disappointments.

Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom and knowledge with me.

I have found a connection between physical abuse and arthritis in my clients I see for pain hypnosis, Here is a study regarding such:

Childhood Physical Abuse Linked To Arthritis, Study Finds

— Adults who had experienced physical abuse as children have 56 per cent higher odds of osteoarthritis compared to those who have not been abused, according to a new study by University of Toronto researchers.

University of Toronto researchers investigated the relationship between self-reported childhood physical abuse and a diagnosis of osteoarthritis (OA). After analyzing representative data from the 2005 Canadian Community Health Survey, the researchers determined a significant association between childhood physical abuse and osteoarthritis in adulthood.

The study is published in the November issue of the journal Arthritis Care & Research.

Osteoarthritis is an often debilitating chronic condition that affects millions of adults. "We found that 10.2 per cent of those with osteoarthritis reported they had been physically abused as children in comparison to 6.5 per cent of those without osteoarthritis," says lead author Esme Fuller-Thomson of U of T's Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work and Department of Family and Community Medicine. "This study provides further support for the need to investigate the possible role that childhood abuse plays in the development of chronic illness."

Co-author Sarah Brennenstuhl, a doctoral student at the University of Toronto, stated that, "We were surprised that the significant association between childhood physical abuse and osteoarthritis persisted even after controlling for major potentially confounding factors such as obesity, physical activity levels as well as age, gender, income and race."

According to Fuller-Thomson, one important avenue for future research is to investigate the pathways through which arthritis may develop as a consequence of childhood physical abuse.

Below is an article regarding the study of how stress management increases successful IVF treatments. It is know that stress can cause spasm of the fallopian tubes and influences the pituitary gland.

I have had much success with my clients using hypnosis to relieve anxiety and fear of becoming pregnant and various emotional issues that may lead to this anxiety.

Below is the article:

Stress Reduction May Improve IVF Success Rate

http://www.redorbit .com/news/ health/1771631/ stress_reduction _may_improve_ ivf_success_ rate/

A new study by doctors in Massachusetts finds that relaxation and stress management may actually work to help some women become pregnant.

Women hoping to get pregnant have long been told to relax and stop worrying about it, but not all obstetricians and gynecologists agreed with that advice.

But the latest research, presented Monday at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine's 65th Annual Meeting, suggests the idea may actually have merit.

Alice Domar, who runs a fertility center in Boston and works at the Harvard Medical School, found that women who participated in a stress management program prior to or during their second in-vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle had a 160 percent greater pregnancy rate than those who did not take part in a program.

The research showed a pregnancy rate of 52 percent among women who participated in the program, versus a 20 percent pregnancy rate for those who did not.

The 10-session stress management program focused on educating women on the utilization of cognitive, relaxation and lifestyle techniques to manage stress.

The program had an even greater impact on pregnancy rates for women with higher baselines symptoms of depression at the beginning of the study. For those women, pregnancy rates spiked to 67 percent among those who took part in the stress reduction program, compared with no pregnancies for those that did not.

"Reproductive health experts have long wondered about the impact that stress may have on fertility, thus impeding a woman's ability to conceive," says Alice Domar, Ph.D., Executive Director of The Domar Center for Mind/Body Health at Boston IVF and assistant professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology at Harvard Medical School.

"This study shows that stress management may improve pregnancy rates, minimizing the stress of fertility management itself, improving the success rates of IVF procedures, and ultimately, helping to alleviate the emotional burden for women who are facing challenges trying to conceive."

Domar and her colleagues randomly assigned 97 patients at the clinic to participate in the 10-session stress reduction program while undergoing IVF treatments.

The program had no effect on the number of women who conceived during the first attempt, with 43 percent of the women becoming pregnant, Domar said.

However, for those who failed to become pregnant the first time and were making a second attempt, 52 percent of the program participants became pregnant, compared with just 20 percent of those who did not take part in the program.

"It's clear based on this carefully designed study, that a holistic approach to infertility care leads to better outcomes for patients," Reuters quoted Dr. R. Dale McClure, president of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, as saying.

The study was a collaboration of Dr. Domar and Janet Nikolovski, PhD, Manager, R&D, Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc., which funded the study.

"With stress increasing over the last decade and being associated with health concerns, we are committed to advancing clinical research on stress. The goal is to provide solutions that reduce stress and its emotional and physical impact on women so that they can lead happier and healthier lives," said Janet Nikolovski, R&D manager of Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc.
