SMOKING

When you quit smoking you’ll feel benefits within hours:
  • After twelve hours almost all of the nicotine is out of your system.
  • After twenty-four hours the level of carbon monoxide in your blood has dropped dramatically. You now have more oxygen in your bloodstream.
  • After five days most nicotine by-products have gone.
  • Within days your sense of taste and smell improves.
  • Within a month your blood pressure returns to its normal level and your immune system begins to show signs of recovery.
  • Within two months your lungs will no longer be producing extra phlegm caused by smoking.
  • After twelve months your increased risk of dying from heart disease is half that of a continuing smoker.
  • Stopping smoking reduces the incidence and progression of lung disease including chronic bronchitis and emphysema.
  • After ten years of stopping your risk of lung cancer is less than half that of a continuing smoker and continues to decline (provided the disease is not already present).
  • After fifteen years your risk of heart attack and stroke is almost the same as that of a person who has never smoked.

Hypnotherapy can help clients learn how to feel relaxed and at ease while improving the feel and look of their skin.  The Positive emotions can lead to healthier skin.
Clients with Psoriasis have benefited dramatically from Clinical Hypnotherapy.  The skin is the largest organ of the human body and it is very influenced by the emotions.  By working on relaxation as well as off loading old outdated patterns of behaviour, the whole Mind/Body System undergoes a shift of consciousness at the deepest level.  To put it simply the skin starts to heal and repair itself.  In the case of Psoriasis new cell growth can be slowed with Clinical Hypnotherapy and the outer skin can be given suggestion to be calm, cool and normal in feel and colour.
Post Hypnotic cues can be given so that in the future the emotional significance of the skin condition changes to a much more positive outlook.  It is also possible to use regression to take clients back to a time when the skin was healthy and free from the limitations of the skin condition and to then update the subconscious as well as future pacing, to return the healthy pattern of skin generation to the affected site or sites.
