Hypnotherapy and health

`The client has more awareness than when fully awake'


Special to the News

Hypnotherapy is a new alternative healing art.

Some of the myths and fears about hypnosis are the fear of revealing secrets. The client actually has more awareness than when fully awake.

There is a big fear about loss of control. A hypnotized subject never losses control of themselves. The client maintains complete control over decision-making and can come out whenever they want. In fact, the client also keeps the power of selectivity.


Many PhDs and MDs work with and want to promote the use of Hypnotherapy. Many PhDs and MDs are members of the ABH (American Board of Hypnotherapy) and the OHA (Oregon Hypnotherapy Association). There are many medical hypnotherapy books written by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis that also is full of PhDs and MDs.

Medical Hypnosis can help heal or treat addictions (such as drugs, alcohol, eating and smoking), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, pain, social anxieties, depression, schizophrenia, cancer, auto-immune diseases, allergies, and other conditions. Hypnosis can help with child birth, emergencies, and burn patients.

The medical hypnosis field now has an insurance coverage code number -- 90880 -- try it you will like it. Medical Hypnosis is very helpful indeed.

Power of hypnosis `sounds wierd' -- but it comes from within

Lynn Mystic-Healer's background includes working as a Registered Nurse in rural Oregon and in the remote Queen Charlotte Islands in Canada.

"This led me to want to help do more preventive medical work. I was very happy to find the Medical Hypnotherapy field. This is all I wanted to do. I could feel this was my way to help people heal their lives."

Mystic-Healer reports that in her hypnotherapy work that "angels, Jesus, Native American sages, Archangels, and loving dead relatives started coming to my clients. These many Holy Spirits were so loving, and full of positive truly divine guidance for each of my clients. They come to my clients and not to me.

"I know this sounds very weird to many people, but the light of god is within us and has come for many of my clients and it is real. God is real and attached to everyone's breath which is our soul. Our soul guides (Holy Spirits) can not override free will. We all must pray, breath (let go) and then meditate -- listening. Our soul guides want to help us to learn how to remember why we incarnated, and what gifts we should pursue to help us heal ourselves. Our soul guides can help us to find self-love, through prayer, breathwork, and listening."

Parkdale third graders sing "12 Disaster Days of Christmas"

Welcome to your sing-able Christmas gift list. What follows is an emergency rendition of “12 Days of Christmas” – for outfitting your home or car in case of snow storm, earthquake, flood or other emergency. Read it as a simple list, or sing it to the tune of “12 Days” – you know, as in “ … and a partridge in a pear tree…” Not to make light of it, but the song is a familiar framework for a set of gift ideas that you could consider gathering together, even if the recipient already owns items such as a bunch of coats, tire chains and flashlights. Stores throughout the Gorge are stocked up on all these items. Buying all 12 days might be prohibitive, but here are three ideas for checking any of the dozen off your list (notations follow, 1-12.) The gift items needed to stay warm, dry and safe are also coded to suggest items in your abode (A) in your car (C) or both (B). 12 Gallons of Water (A) 11 Family meals (B) 10 Cans of propane (A) 9 Hygiene bags (B) 8 Packs of batteries (A) 7 Spare coats (B) 6 Bright red flares (C) 5 Cozy blankets (B) 4 Tire chains (C) 3 Flashlights (B) 2 cell phone chargers (B) 1 And a crush-proof first aid kit (B) Price ranges? Here’s a few quotes for days Three, Two, Four and Nine: n A family gift of flashlights (three will run $15-30, Hood River Supply, Tum-A-Lum) n Cell phone chargers (two will run $30-60) n Tire chains (basic set, $30, Les Schwab, returnable if unused for the winter) n Family meals ($100 or so should cover the basics for three or four reasonably well-fed days) n The home kit should be kept in a handy place near an exit, and remember that water needs to be replenished every few months. If you have a solid first aid kit already, switch out the gift idea with “and-a-sto-o-u-t- tub-for it-all …” Otherwise, it’s a case of assembling your home or car kits and making sure all members of the family know what the resources are and how to use them (ie flares and propane). Emergency situations are at worst life-threatening, at best deeply uncomfortable if you and your family are left without power for an extended period, or traveling and find yourself in a situation where you need to wait out a storm, lengthy traffic delay, or other crisis. Notes on the 12 gift ideas: 12 – Gallons of water: that’s one per person in a four-member family to last for three days, the recommended minimum to be prepared for utility outages. 11 – Easy-open packaged goods, energy bars, dried food and nuts are good things to include for nutrition. Think of what your family of four needs for three days to stay fortified and hydrated (see number 12). Can-opener also recommended 10 – If you have a propane camping stove, keep extra fuel handy. 9 – Hygiene bags: put packaged moistened towelettes, toilet paper, and plastic ties in large garbage bags (for personal sanitation) Resource list courtesy of Hood River County Emergency Management, Barbara Ayers, manager/ 541-386-1213. The county also reminds residents to Get a Kit, Make A Plan to connect your family if separated, and Stay Informed. See www.co.hood-river.or.us to opt-in for citizen alerts. Enlarge
