We are a member of and follow National Guild of Hypnotists guidelines for online professional practice
Working from home or being in self-isolation does not need to stop you from staying healthy or achieving your personal goals this year. In addition to doing your part to “flatten the curve” and possibly saving lives, staying at home makes for an ideal time to engage in self-care and personal development.
Since 2018, we have been engaging with clients through online videoconferencing, telephone calls and custom recordings. Tele-hypnosis is just as effective as in-person visits. It's safe, convenient, cost-effective and has been approved by the National Guild of Hypnotists.
We don’t want anybody to delay stopping smoking or to live with increased anxiety during a time that is already difficult enough. Now more than ever, we are the calm in the center of the storm for you.
WHAT DOES HYPNOSIS DO?
Hypnosis facilitates change at the subconscious level of the mind where emotions and habits reside, without the resistance of the thinking mind.
Working with a professional hypnotist makes it easier to effectively transform old habits, patterns, and unwanted behaviors.
Now's the time to quit smoking to increase your odds of beating Covid-19
(CNN) If you've been thinking about quitting smoking, there's no time like the present pandemic.
With the novel coronavirus sweeping the globe, the science on quitting smoking offers welcome news for smokers who want to build up their defenses in case they contract Covid-19.
Though it may still take many months for a smoker's lungs to heal from damage caused by long-term smoking, your health can noticeably improve in the days and weeks after quitting in ways that could make a difference against the virus.
Although you can't reverse scarring to your lungs caused by smoking, there are a number of ways your lung health can improve in the short term, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Time to strengthen your lungs
"Every lung doctor in America will be preaching that everyone should quit smoking." Dr. Brian Christman, a volunteer spokesman with the American Lung Association and a professor of medicine at Vanderbilt University, told CNN.
While this message isn't new, it's more relevant than ever.
Covid-19 creates an added sense of urgency, and there's ample reason to believe that quitting smoking during the pandemic could increases your odds of fighting off the virus.
If you make the decision to quit, the cilia in your lungs are one of the first parts of your body to heal. These hair-like projections wave back and forth like a brush as air moves in and out of your lungs.
They help your body fight off colds and infection, the CDC says. They also help clear mucus, so if they're not functioning as well as they should, mucus can build up in the lungs.
Your body's inclination to cough during an infection helps activate the bodily process of clearing out mucus, called the mucociliary escalator. That's vital in fighting the Covid-19 condition.
The elderly are at a greater risk for excessive lung fluid that often limits breathing following coronavirus infection because "old folks don't have a strong enough cough to clear it up," Christman said.
For smokers, "at baseline you're set up for chronic bronchitis," Christman said. "With Covid, it gets worse."
And even if you're not living in an area where there are numerous coronavirus cases, your decision to quit smoking might pay off down the road. That's because public health authorities have projected multiple waves of cases over the next 18 months could be possible.
"It's an investment in the future," he said. "Covid might circulate in the Southern Hemisphere and then come back. Someone quitting now might really help themselves in the second wave."
"Using hypnosis for smoking cessation helps knock out the cravings and focuses on tools to help you manage any stressors."
