Losing Weight for Good through Hypnotherapy

By on 11-20-2016 in Hypnosis

The idea that one is beautiful has always been erroneously associated with body shape and size. This is why many people, especially those who are overweight and obese try so hard to look for the easiest and fastest remedy that will enable them to cut corners, solutions like extremely tiring and demanding exercise regimes, fad weight loss diets and diet pills. These quick, temporary solutions, however, are most likely to fail because these do not address the real source of the problem.

Well, let’s face it. Being heavier does have negative effects. First, it is unhealthy and increases a person’s risk of developing severe conditions, including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, heart attack or cancer. Second, it has social repercussions, like verbal/emotional bullying and/or discrimination, which can lead to low self-confidence, stress and/or depression.

Some of those whose resolve to lose weight is sincere (like through dieting) achieve what they hope to accomplish. However, diet and nutrition plans focus only on the food they eat – specifically, the food’s nutritional value and the amount consumed. Eat plenty of non-nutritional food, though one may enjoy, he/she will suffer his/her act’s consequence: additional body fats and weight. On the other hand, diet and eat only nutritional food, one may dislike the lack in taste, but he/she would not be sorry for the results. The only concern he/she would have is how long he/she will have to keep eating this way.

Hypnotherapy as a solution for weight loss is an alternative, a very effective alternative, in fact to dieting and exercising too much (well, exercising, not too much, should never be taken out of the picture, though, due to the tremendous benefits it has). While hypnotherapy does not make one stop from eating nutritional food, what it does exactly is make him/her enjoy the food he/she is eating. It makes a person change his/her thinking pattern, allowing him/her to gain control over his/her cravings in a way that will not depress him/her.

As explained in the website of the Orlando Hypnosis Clinic, hypnosis is not a magic pill or solution that will make a person drop thirty pounds in a week; this is neither realistic nor healthy. Positive suggestions, instead, is what will serve as the roadmap to success. While in a comfortable trance state a hypnotist will give verbal positive suggestion to eat healthy food instead of junk food. He/She will help replace bad behavioral habits with healthy ones.

After hypnosis the person hypnotized may even become aware that he/she always has a choice when it comes down to what to eat: nutritional meal, fruits, and vegetables. That’s it. Hypnosis is a very effective tool for normalizing weight naturally – without surgery, drugs or pills.

Domestic Violence: A Crime Wherein Both Women and Men are Victims

By on 9-09-2016 in Domestic Violence

Domestic violence, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, affects millions of American households each year. Though majority of victims are women (about 1.3 million women are abused by their partner every year), a survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that 40% of the total number of victims of severe, physical domestic violence are actually men. These men, however, are not those who are too weak to fight back, rather, they are those who do not wish fight back; those who would rather be hurt than hurt their partner.

Anyway, whether the victim is a man or a woman, the fact that domestic violence or domestic abuse causes pain and destroy lives cannot be contested. No uniform definition of domestic violence exists in all U.S. states; some definitions say that domestic violence is an abusive, or a pattern of abusive, act/behavior committed against a person (the victim) with whom the perpetrator of the act has an intimate or sexual relationship with, such as a spouse, a dating partner or a sexual partner. Some definitions, on the other hand, include all persons in a domestic relationship; thus, besides a spouse, this will include children and other relatives living with the aggressor (some other states even include in their list of persons protected by domestic violence laws, a former spouse, a former sexual or dating partner, an in-law, a step-parent, and a step-child.

Domestic abuse can be physical, emotional, psychological, sexual, or economic in nature. It can also be threats of action that can influence another person; these threats include actions intended frighten, hurt, injure, intimidate, terrorize, humiliate, or manipulate another. Specific actions that are considered as abuse include punching, hitting, kicking, shoving, pushing, sexual assault, intimidation, stalking, withholding money, constant or repeated name-calling, isolating a partner from others, wielding a weapon against someone, and so forth.

Criminal prosecution of domestic violence charges fall under assault and battery laws, menacing, harassment, or false imprisonment (a tort and a common-law felony due to the act of restraining a person in a restricted area without justification or consent).

According to a Nashville domestic violence defense attorney, when police officers respond to an incident of alleged domestic violence, state law mandates that the preferred response of officers is to arrest the primary aggressor. Though this law is intended to protect victims of domestic violence, it may also force the hand of the police to make arrests that they may not have to do otherwise. Regardless of the events that led to an arrest, the severity of a domestic violence accusation, whether it is true or baseless, will require an accused to hire a highly-competent domestic violence defense attorney for the best possible defense that may save him/her from conviction, as well as for him/her to clear his/her record of the charges made against him/her – for the protection of his/her rights and future.

The damage is predicated on the primary nerves of the arm which are part of the brachial plexus.

The Causes and Consequences of Dog Bites

By on 8-21-2015 in Animal Attacks

Dogs are integral members in millions of American homes. These pets make for an easy fit in family environments thanks to their sweet and friendly dispositions. Unfortunately, there are also moments when dogs can pose a great risk to the people around them, especially children. It isn’t uncommon for these beloved pets to become aggressive when faced with something that they perceive as a threat. Oftentimes, this perceived threat and fear can causes the dog to lash out and attack. These attacks can quickly become dangerous and cause serious injury to those that become affected by the dog’s sudden change in behavior.

As the Jeff Sampson Law Firm notes on its website, dog bites can very often lead to a number of different injuries that require hospitalization and immediate medical attention. Some of the most common consequences of dog bites include broken bones, severe lacerations, hemorrhaging, puncture wounds, bacterial infections, viral infections like rabies, and severe contusions. These injuries are become even more alarming when one considers that most dog bite victims are children. Younger kids are particularly vulnerable to such accidents because they might not be able to properly perceive the changes in an animal’s behavior indicating that it is feeling threatened and starting to become aggressive. Children are more likely to let these signs go unnoticed and continue interacting with a volatile dog.

Fortunately, there are a number of methods that pet owners can use to prevent dog bites from happening. For one, pet owners should take responsibility in ensuring that their dogs receive proper training and socialization to foster positive behavior. A majority of the United States have also imposed laws requiring dog owners to make sure their pets are properly leashed when out in public areas. Some states also regulate the ownership of some of the most aggressive dog breeds to ensure that they are properly looked after without posing any risk to the public.

Truck Accidents: Who is More at Fault?

By on 4-14-2015 in Automobiles, Injury

All drivers would surely want to get to their destinations safely, especially if they find themselves sharing the road with a big truck; but if they end up driving at the truck’s blind or “no zone” area, tailgate it or cut in front of it, then the likelihood of an accident wouldn’t be remote.

About two million semi-trucks, big rigs, tractor trailers, and 18-wheelers ply major US roads and highways. And, every year, close to half a million of these trucks figure in an accident, based on a report to the US Department of Transportation. An estimated 130,000 of these accidents result in injuries, while about 5,000 end in fatalities.

Despite the big number, accidents involving trucks are very much smaller compared to car accidents and, surprisingly, in accidents wherein a truck and a car are involved, fault is most often blamed on the driver of the smaller vehicle.

Due to their big size and very heavy weight trucks are considered threats on the road. They can easily crush, like tin cans, anything that would block their way. They require longer breaking distance, carry heavy (sometimes even toxic) cargo, and require federal standard and not worn-out tires to ensure traction, especially during emergency breaks. Truck drivers also regularly drive cross-county, often for at least 10 hours straight, and would usually ignore fatigue or sleepiness due to truck operator’s pay-by-the-mile rule. These are some of the reasons why applicants for a commercial driver’s license are made to go through tough training and tests (written and a three-part skills test on vehicle inspection, basic control and road test) to make sure that they are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills required in operating a truck safely.

It is obvious, however, that despite drivers’ training and readiness to handle their trucks safely plus car drivers’ own set of requirements before being issued a driver’s license by their state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), someone is still very likely to act negligently on the road.

The website of The Law Offices of Crowe & Mulvey, LLC, could not have put it more clearly when it said that we all have a “moral and legal obligation to ensure that we do not recklessly endanger others.” Thus, if by a person’s actions someone gets injured, then that person becomes legally responsible for the results of his/her carelessness or recklessness.

Keeping Your Storage Safe

By on 2-01-2015 in Safe Storage

Storage tends to be used for things that you care about but do not necessarily want to look at every day. If you put something in storage, odds are you care about it since you are going out of your way to not throw it away. Burglars know this, which is why storage robbery is so common. Here are a few tips on how to prevent your items in storage from being taken.

It should go without saying, but make sure the storage space you are renting has adequate security. Ideal security would include security cameras and key fobs. Although a traditional lock and key or punching in a code could suffice, they are easier systems to infiltrate. After all, it is an investment for your possessions.

The website of Ben White Mini Storage says you should check your storage unit once a month. However, if possible you should check it more often than that. Storage burglars tend to seek out spaces that seem abandoned, so they more you visit your storage space, the more likely they will see you and avoid that area. Visiting your storage space often reaps other benefits other than security. If you keep vehicles in storage, you can run their engine every once in awhile to keep them working properly. It will also remind you what you stored, making it easier to keep track of all of your items. You should also never keep a vehicle’s keys with it in storage. Doing so only makes it easier for a burglar to steal it.

Finally, if you have smaller valuable possessions in storage, find creative ways to hide them. For example, you could keep them in the glove compartment of a vehicle, the drawer of a dresser, or underneath a couch cushion. Sometimes burglars are just looking for something quick and easy to take, so they will not bother with larger items.

Intense Pulsed Light can Help Skin

By on 10-23-2014 in Health & Beauty

Intense pulsed light, or IPL, works by using short blasts of high-intensity, polychromatic light that penetrates just below the surface of the skin. The specialized hand-piece has built –in filters that could change the range of wavelength to allow optimized use for specific skin types or different applications. This in turn would damage the melanin that caused the dark spots or target the broken capillaries. This would allow the skin to repair itself, resulting in an even skin tone. IPL is also known to boost the production of collagen and elastin that could give the skin a more youthful appearance.

IPL are available at day spas, since they can cost less than lasers and can be done by only one machine that would target a number of areas. On medical spas, however, they are offered with a number of choices of machines that can be used to suit a specific type of skin. Darker skin tones, for example, may require special equipment for better IPL results. Since IPL treatments are less expensive than laser treatments, they are a better option if you are aiming to fix a number of skin issues.

The most common areas that IPL treatments are used on are the face, neck, chest, and hands. These are the areas that are generally exposed to sunlight, and are prone to sunspots or age spots. Obvious results are seen after four to six treatment sessions, done in an interval of one to two weeks. Those who undergo IPL treatments should not worry about any downtime that can prevent them from returning to their normal routine, and IPL treatments has a very low risk of side effects. Many patients are very satisfied with IPL treatments because rather than addressing an isolated area or a single imperfection, the whole treatment can deal with the full face, chest, hands, or neck of the patient.

The Morcellex Sigma Tissue Morcellator

By on 9-01-2014 in Health & Beauty, Injury

Prior to the 1990s, women who had to undergo a hysterectomy had to bear a six-inch incision in her abdomen, as the procedure was an open surgery. The turn of the decade then, however, saw the introduction of power morcellators, a device that was capable of cutting an over-sized uterus and fibroids (or myomas) into small pieces. This medical device paved the way for procedures known as laparoscopic surgeries (including hysterectomy and myomectomy, which is the removal of uterine fibroid or myoma), wherein the power morcellator is used.

Many doctors and patients began to prefer the minimally invasive laparoscopic hysterectomy, over abdominal hysterectomy, as the procedure provided greater benefits, such as shorter period of recovery, less complications, pain and blood loss, and required very small incisions in the abdomen, about 0.5-1cm short.

Pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson, the leading manufacturer of power morcellators, introduced three of the best engineered power morcellators in the market then (through Ethicon, its power morcellator manufacturing division): the Gynecare Morcellex, the Gynecare X-Tract and the Morcellex Sigma.

Like Johnson & Johnson’s other power morcellators, the Morcellex Sigma was carefully designed to provide optimum reliability and performance through smooth and efficient tissue morcellation, as well as faster performance.

Despite unparalleled efficiency, however, Ethicon decided to: suspend its worldwide promotion, sales and distribution of all its power morcellators; order a voluntary market withdrawal of the devices; and, make a request to hospitals to return its power morcellators. This pullback is due to the US Food and Drug Administration’s April 17, 2014, safety alert the discouraged the use of power morcellators in procedures involving removal of the uterus (hysterectomy) or uterine fibroids (myomectomy), as the devices posed the risk of spreading undetected cancerous tissues, particularly uterine sarcomas, beyond the uterus.

Women, who have been treated with a power morcellator in the past and has been diagnosed with uterine cancer, may be qualified to receive compensation from the manufacturer of the harmful device. Claims for damages may include pain and suffering, lifestyle stress, medical costs, wrongful death and others which are recognized by the civil court.

To further know and understand what legal rights and options the victim has, it is necessary that she contacts the morcellator lawsuit lawyers at the National Injury Law Center, whose knowledge and expertise on the issue will allow her to benefit fully from the stipulations of the law.
