Hypnotherapy Treatment for IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)

Imagery and Stroke Patients

Researchers from the Department of Rehabilitation, Laval University and Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Rehabilitation and Social Integration, Quebec City, ran a controlled, clinical trial examining the potential of using "mental practice" (MP) to promote the learning of 2 mobility tasks in people who suffered a stroke.

Twelve patients were trained with MP to increase putting their weight on the affected limb (called loading) while standing up from a chair and sitting down. Vertical forces were recorded using force plates under each foot and the chair. Changes in the loading of the affected limb and in task duration, immediately after one training session and 24 hours later, served as outcomes.

After training, the loading of the affected limb had increased (P < 0.001) during standing up (16.2%) and sitting down (17.9%), and the improvement remained significant 24 hours later, indicating a learning effect. In contrast, the speed at which they were able to stand up and sit down did not change with this training. The results indicate that, in the early stage of learning with MP, changes in limb-loading strategies are a more sensitive measure of performance than is speed.

Drug addiction and hypnosis

Depending on which narcotic is involved, a person can quickly become addicted to a drug. Some such as marijuana and prescription pain killers may take longer to create a bonifide addiction. However, others such as meth amphetamines and cocaine can easily create an addiction from the very first use. There are two factors involved in a drug addiction. The first comes from the strength of the addictive drug as mentioned previously. The second comes from the repetitive use of the drug. The more that the behavior is repeated; the quicker it becomes a habit. Of course, that is true for just...

What is reading comprehension?

When someone is easily comprehending what they are reading, their brain is able to easily and quickly to answer the two primary questions of understanding: how and why. In fact, they should be quite simple as the brain is designed to suddenly convert perception into meaning. Another factor is that when how and why are answered for dumbly this is done by linking new perceptions with pre-existing patterns of meaning that already been established in the mind. (When I am speaking of the mind there are also direct correlations between the functioning of various parts of the brain and the way the...

Freedom from Mental Anxieties

What happens when someone is experiencing an anxiety? Normally, we associate such an occurrence with distinct reactions in the body. Some people feel like their anxiety must be a heart attack. They find that their pulse increases. They feel a tightness in their chest. Their hands and feet may suddenly go numb. Yes, it may just feel like a heart attack is occurring.
