Symptoms of alcohol withdrawal can last not just for weeks and months, but in severe cases even years. Although the most severe stage of usually happens during the first weeks and months, it can still take a toll on your life for a long time.
Oftentimes people who gave up alcohol find it hard to enjoy life without drinking,
There are many possible symptoms that come with alcohol withdrawal, and they include things like catatonia, anxiety, insomnia, migraines, hallucinations, anorexia, psychosis, nausea, seizures, tremors, delirium tremens, panic attacks, tachycardia, palpitations, diarrhea, irritability and depression (among other things).
One of the things that seems to help in cases of protracted alcohol withdrawal is magnesium or trazodone.
What can make things even more difficult is kindling. That means when someone has repeatedly stopped drinking alcohol, and then started again, and is now trying to stop again – the withdrawal symptoms can be even more intense in those cases.
From a medical perspective, the most common medication to treat alcohol withdrawal are benzodiazepines, but there are many other kinds of medication (like barbiturates, ethanol, clomethiazole, trazodone and others) – and they can help in alleviating particularly the physical effects of alcohol withdrawal.
However, a holistic treatment of alcohol withdrawal should also adress the psychological and psychosomatic side of it.
And that’s where a hypnosis MP3 can come in handy. Because it helps you to communicate to your subconscious mind what this is about – why it’s happening, why it’s feeling the way it does.
When your body is not intoxicated anymore, after having been for a long time, then it needs to reorganize itself. It can get rid of accumulated toxins, and that is something that doesn’t feel pleasant – but ultimately it sets you on the path to freedom and independence.
With an hypnosis download for alcohol withdrawal symptoms you can drastically reduce the psychological suffering that is involved. You can put symptoms in their place.
Realize that hypnotherapy isn’t magic – it’s not like all you have to do is listen to the hypnosis MP3 once and all of the sudden the withdrawal symptoms are gone. But it helps you to manage the process of going clean, of getting rid of the addiction and finding your inner power again.
You’ve got it in you. You wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t serious about stopping to drink. You wouldn’t have gone so far.
But going it all on your own is too much. Get help. From everywhere you can. This is the kind of battle that most men and women wouldn’t be able to fight – a battle with the darkest part of yourself. And if you don’t utilize the power of your subconscious mind to win this battle, you’re making things a lot harder than they have to be.
It’s so hard because the worst enemy in this battle is you. A craving for another sip – that’s part of you. And you can’t just switch it off or destroy it – you need to find a way to manage it. It’s like your body is telling you that you “need” a drink – even though you know that it’ll just open the gates of hell all over again. Yet, it’s so tempting and luring.
This hypnosis download can help you to find – and use – your inner strength and power. And that’s really all that you need to win this battle.
Agoraphobia is not just a fear of open spaces, although it is often false described as that. It’s a lot more complex than just that.
It’s a condition that’s most common among woman and often starts in early adulthood, but people of both sexes and all ages can be susceptible. Agoraphobia should always be treated, because if somebody tries to “just life with it”, it often escalates into other phobias. (Paradoxically one of the phobias that often develop out of agoraphobia is claustrophobia – the fear of enclosed spaces!)
The most common treatment for agoraphobia is (unfortunately) medication. What’s good about medication is that it works very fast in relieving the worst symptoms, because it modifies the levels of serotonin in your body. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter – a substance that naturally occurs in your body and that affects your emotions.
Medication can be divided into three categories: selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI), certain antidepressants and benzodiazepines. With benzodiazepines there’s a high risk of developing dependency though, so that’s one reason why a patient should always consider all other options first before opting to go this way. Antidepressants can help but they often come with a lot of negative side-effects, and while the same is true for SSRIs, they seem to be the least threatening pharmacological treatment option.
However, what it ultimately boils down to is to re-train your brain to react differently to certain stimuluses. This is often done by psychotherapy or group coachings, where people talk and share their experiences.
Cognitive therapy is also a popular treatment for agoraphobia. It works by essentially doing things that challenge your beliefs about certain things – particularly negative, limiting believs that make you feel scared and afraid.
A person who suffers from agoraphobia is typically scared of situations in which it is difficult to escape (or where escaping would be embarassing).
And they often start to redesign their life around their agoraphobia, ending up really limiting the scope of things they can do. This not only affects their professional life, but also stifles personal growth and happiness. So it is crucial to do something about it as soon as possible – because the longer you wait, the worse it could get. On the other hand, the sooner you act the better your chances of getting over agoraphobia.
The problem is that your fears will always trigger avoidance behavior, and this can keep you from actively pursuing a solution.
That’s why hypnosis downloads are so powerful in helping to overcome agoraphobia. Because you can start working with them in the place and setting that you are comfortable with. It can help you to ease the symptoms and calm your mind.
The best way to use an agoraphobia hypnosis MP3 is to listen to it daily, ideally just before you go to sleep. Because that way the hypnotic suggestions will be processed by your mind in the most effective way at night while you sleep and dream, and the effects will continue to linger throughout the day.
Give it a try for four weeks of listening to it daily and you will be surprised how much will have changed in positive ways. Hypnosis can’t “cure” agoraphobia overnight – but it can set you on the safe path to recovery and eventually help you to attain the emotional and psychological freedom you want and deserve in life.
If you have a snoring partner the loud sounds at night might trouble you. Even if you love your partner, it can put a strain on your relationship if it takes your sleep away. That’s why these “hypnotic” snoring ear plugs can really make a big difference in your life. You see, you do not actually need real, physical ear plugs. Because your brain is in charge of proessing the signals which it receives through your ears. There’s a lot of filtering, modification and amplification involved – much more than what even the most expensive modern recording studios are able to perform.
So when you train your mind to tone down – and even ignore – the snoring sounds, you can sleep tightly at night.
There are different ways to try to ignore snoring. Some people try to use “white sound” – which is essentially a sound like the sound water makes when it flows, or the sound of waves in the ocean, or random noise.
The way this works is that our ears have a hard time to filter out or recognize anything in these kinds of auditory surroundings. That’s why these kinds of sounds are often used to do something that sound engineers call “masking” – basically “hiding” other specific sounds or noises.
But even white noise adds an auditory disturbance to your life.
But why use hypnosis? The answer is simply that hypnosis can help you to master your own mind.
Maybe you have heard or read about meditation masters who are able to perform astonishing mental and physical tasks. Some of them can do things that seem impossible to us, and they seem to be able to do these things easily.
Of course they’ve also practiced diligently for many years to be able to control their states of consciousness in these ways.
With practicing the right kind of meditation, you could sleep sound like a child even with your partner snoring loudly into your ear. But do you really want to practice meditation for years in hope of eventually being able to sleep that way?
Hypnosis is a faster way to do this. It’s a kind of psychological short-cut. You’re not so much training your mind to ignore snoring, you’re conditioning it. Or in a way re-programming yourself to filter out the noises your snoring partner makes.
Try it for yourself – listen to this hypnosis download MP3 every night before you go to bed for three weeks. And then, after you’ve allowed yourself to be surprised by the fact that you actually sleep well even with your snoring partner next to you, you can still decide if you actually need to stick “physical” plugs into your ear, or whether your “mental” auditory filtes haven’t adjusted themselves so well that you sleep well automatically.
Keep in mind – hypnosis isn’t a miracle cure. It’s not like just listening to the hypnosis MP3 once will “cure” you, or make you ignore snoring forever (although this might occasionally happen in some cases). For most people, it’s a process of several weeks where you utilize specific hypnotic inductions to achieve the desired outcome: safe and sound sleep at night.
I recently watched the movie Contagion (I know, I know, it’s late…), and I got to tell you that it’s a great way to install a phobia of a pandemic in people.
No doubt – it’s a great movie from an artistic standpoint, it makes awesome entertainment.
But from a psychological perspective, it’s a fear-monger.
Particularly because something like this could actually happen, theoretically. And if so, we as individuals have very little control over it – we can’t simply avoid it, take measures to protect ourselves and our loved ones from it, because there are so many possible ways to get infected.
But the thing is – being scared of germs doesn’t help either. Quite the opposite is true: people who are scared of germs often are more susceptible to infections, in addition to the fact that they have a drastically dimished overall quality of life.
You probably know the TV show about this eccentric detective, called Monk. He’s always acting compulsive because of his pathological fear of germs.
In the medical community, there’s a term for that too, it’s called mysophobia, and it’s a quite common condition, in fact, it’s one of the most widely spread phobias in the US.
At some point, you need to realize that germs aren’t bad – in fact, they are good more often than not. There are millions and millions of germs in and on your body that you need to survive.
When you watch mysophobia, you might start to suddenly wonder whether the person who’s sharing her popcorn bowl with you washed her hands after going to the toilet. And all of the sudden, that popcorn might seem a lot less tempting. And this kind of thing could go on and on – in fact, I’m pretty sure that there are hundreds of people for whom the movie Contagion is the beginning of a germs phobia.
If you then read some reports in the news about some new scientific developments, there could be serious concern.
For example, scientists who experiment with trying to make the Avian flu virus more contagious – and sadly they succeeded with that. Essentially we know have a lethal virus, that got pimped by scientists to be a lot more contagious than it originally was, sitting in some laboratory. And now there’s an intense debate about whether these scientific findings should be published or not – because it would essentially allow terrorists or other madmen to create their own lethal and highly contagious virus.
So for germophobes, another reason to panic. But the thing is – you really don’t want to live your life that way. You don’t want to constantly try to create and maintain a sterile bubble around yourself to protect yourself from any possibly microbacterial harm.
You don’t want to avoid social situations because they could expose you, and you don’t want to be a weirdo who wipes his hand every time he shakes hands.
But what can you do? It’s an irrational fear, and as such, you can not counter it with reasoning. It’s something that happens inside your subconscious mind, over which you have no conscious control. You can’t simply stop being afraid. That’s why hypnosis is so effective – because hypnotic suggestions will be processed by your subconscious mind after you will have listened to them repeatedly for a couple of consecutive days, and your mysophobia will resolve.
All you need to do is to listen to the hypnosis MP3 repeatedly in a relaxed and receptive state of mind – optimally just before you go to sleep.
Acting exercises can help you to become a good actor.
One of the most effective ways to learn acting has been developed by the Russian director Konstantin Stanislavsky. It’s so popular and widespread that it’s also known as “The Method”.
You see, method acting is not so much about breathing techniques, or voice training, or anything like that. It’s brilliance lies in the fact that it trains you to be an authentic actor. This might seem like a paradox term, but it’s crucial. You either come across as authentic, or as a fake. If your audience doesn’t “buy” your role, if you’re not able to make them believe that you are the character that you play, then you failed as an actor.
So how can you become someone else in an authentic way? That’s what method acting is about.
It’s a mental acting exercise.
The Method has been around for more than 80 years now, and every 5 years or so someone comes and proclaims it’s “death”, and that it’s not working anymore, that it was just a fad which is now over. And yet, the finest actors (not just in an artistic, but in hard commercial terms) are using Method Acting – because it works.
Method acting allows you to play a character role authentically, because it helps you to become that character, to use experiences out of your own life and put them to the service of the character you’re playing.
The hard part is not to get the tone of voice right, or to get the right facial expression, or to improve your body language – the hard part is in your mind. Because you have to let go of your psychological identity for the time of playing the role. And letting go of that is something that we’re instinctually scared of, because after all, that’s what makes us the person we are.
The hardest part is to have the courage to let go of that – and be able to keep that going. Because it requires to not just pretend to be somebody else, but to actually be somebody that you’re not. It’s that paradox that’s making it so hard – and that’s why we need the power of our subconscious mind to help us do this better.
The usual acting exercises are like the clothes a person wears. It’s true that clothing can drastically alter how a person is perceived by others – but there are people who can wear a 3000 dollar suit and they still look cheap. And there are people who can wear a pajama, and they still look dignified, wealthy and powerful. And that’s what you’re going for. Because your role as an actor is not to dress up the right way – there are stylists and makeup artists for that. Your role as an actor is to do the act.
The Method Acting Exercises hypnosis download helps you to switch into another personality. It’s a fast track to psychological transformation. Try it for yourself and you’ll immediately notice the difference in your acting skills.
