Get Your Brain Ready For A Baby

Fertility by Hypnosis

Have you been diagnosed “infertile”, placed in a box of negative feelings and run around from doctors to specialists? or IVF chances blown through stress, anxiety or overwhelmed by the whole process.

It should be so easy, shouldn’t it?

You take supplements, have quit bad habits such as drinking or smoking, you watch your weight and notice changes when you’re ovulating, being aware like never before in your life about your body and its processes.

What about those stress levels?

Oxytocin has also been widely implicated in human responses to stress. A number of studies have convincingly demonstrated that oxytocin is what scientists call a down regulator of the body’s stress-axis system, which creates the bleak, gut-tightening feeling you experience when you get the news that the promotion didn’t come through.

People under the influence of oxytocin have smaller, briefer stress responses than others do; bad news seems to roll off them more readily. Human oxytocin receptors are located in several dopamine-rich regions of the brain, suggesting that oxytocin is embedded in our reward circuitry.

One study compared the brain activity of people looking at pictures of loved ones or at pictures of non-romantic friends. The pattern of activity in the cortex was markedly different depending on which type of face the subject was exposed to. FMRI scans of brains processing a romantic gaze bear a striking resemblance to the brain activity of new mothers listening to infants’ cries.

The link between stress response and social attachment is at the heart of Psychology professor at the University of California at Los Angeles Shelley Taylor Taylor’s idea of the tending instinct. You can fight your way out of stress by destroying your enemies, or you can reduce stress by reaching out to loved ones. In terms of brain chemistry, you can load up on adrenaline and fight or flee, or you can cool down with oxytocin and tend and befriend.

Unexplained infertility perhaps does account for a few cases. Despite progress that has been made in the treatment of “infertility” the success rate appears to be quite low. Women are more than ever seeking out complementary treatments such as Acupuncture, Herbal Remedies, Homeopathic Medicine, Chiropractic and Mind Body approaches.

Now! If not earlier is the time to think and act positive by releasing the brain from the idea that it’s all too stressful and there is no more to be done.

One of the most powerful solutions is Clinical Hypnotherapy. Hypnosis goes beyond simple guided imagery and in some cases Fertility by Hypnosis™ services are sought in conjunction with medical fertility programs. Not only will there be increase chances of conception with Hypnotherapy, the fringe benefits including more confidence, feelings of being more in control, stress reduction and relaxation maximise success rates and lead to a more positive life.

The Virtual Gastric Band is an easy weight loss programme taking approximately 4 consultations. This program was pioneered in the UK by Clinical Hypnotherapist/Trainer Sheila Granger.

As the name suggests, the system utilises the concept of a “virtual” gastric band and clinical hypnotherapy. It successfully harnesses the power that every individual holds within them to make changes to their lives. Many clients all over Australia and the world have benefited from The Virtual Gastric Band therapy.

The Virtual Gastric Band is a non-surgical technique which uses the power of clinical hypnosis to retrain you,you will feel satisfied with smaller amounts of food. It changes how you think about food and gives very safe, very predictable results.

One part of the program that utalises clinical hypnotherapy to produce change convinces the brain that the stomach is full after a certain level of intake, and that there is no need for more food.

No dieting needed – we know that diets only work in the short term.

The Virtual Gastric Band allows you to eat what you want, but will enable you to intake smaller portions. And, because it’s not a diet, you won’t feel deprived, miserable or hungry, the issues which cause diets to fail. As The Virtual Gastric Band effectively negates these issues, you are left with a long term solution to your weight problems.

The medical procedure reduces the physical size of the stomach, and may achieve the same result, but The Virtual Gastric Band can be undertaken quickly and privately, without the lengthy delay of hospital waiting lists, and of course carries no costly invasive surgery, no risks and no on-going medical treatment.
