    Your Weight Loss Is Like The High Gas Prices

    Last updated 1 month ago

    A few weeks ago a client came in asking about dieting. In my book, Get Thin—Be Happy, the Six Easy Steps to Weight Loss Success, I explain why that’s not such a great strategy.

    So, I was thinking about the current gas situation with its high prices. Think about this: Pretend that prices at the pump are so very high that you could only afford to put in just a little bit of gas in your tank. Just enough to get by. Well, do you think you’d be making those unnecessary trips to the mall? Zooming along at high speeds on the highway? Cruising around town? Nope! Probably not! You would just take necessary trips. Nothing to waste the gas.

    Your body is like your car. If you reduce the fuel intake (see where I’m going with this?) and you eat less food, your body will lower its metabolism and slow down. It burns less fuel. No “unnecessary trips”, if you know what I mean. So, remember to eat. At least three meals a day. No skipping meals! (It’s in the book.) Put fuel in your tank and watch your metabolism rise!


    What Is The Difference Between Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy?

    Last updated 2 months ago

    Hypnosis vs Hypnotherapy

    This is really just a matter of semantics, but here is my explanation:
    First, there is Hypnotism, which is the art of doing the hypnosis. As a hypnotist, I am in the business of “hypnotism”, not “hypnosis”.
    Hypnosis is the state of being hypnotized. When someone is “in” hypnosis, they are hypnotized.
    Hypnotherapy is the business of hypnotizing people.
    Personally, I don’t like the term “hypnotherapy” since most hypnotists are not therapists. I do not call myself a “hypnotherapist”; I am a “hypnotist”. In fact, I had my official certification changed from “Certified Hypnotherapist” to “Certified Hypnotist” because I do not do therapy in my practice.

    Can You Really Eliminate a Fear?

    Most people who call my office to eliminate a fear at Plymouth Hypnosis Center usually ask the same question, "Can you help me eliminate my fear of _____________ ?" The answer is yes and no.

    So, okay, that's not the best answer, but let me explain...

    Fears are there for a reason. They are there to protect you. (You really don't want to start a career of jumping out of planes, now do you?) But, it's when the fear becomes a problem — when it affects your life — that it needs to be addressed.

    And, in most cases, your fear can be reduced. Which goes back to my original answer: "yes and no". Yes, the fear can be eliminated, but is that always so wise?

    For instance, I get a lot of clients with the fear of bridges. They just can't, for some odd reason, drive over a bridge without panicking. So, I can usually get them to "turn down" that fear, but we don't want to "eliminate" it totally because you really want to be somewhat cautious while driving on a bridge. (You need to be aware of all of the drivers and what they are doing. You are able to drive without the fear, but you aren't reckless about it.) However, the initial fear of driving over the bridge can be so reduced that it's not a problem. Get it?

    Usually, within just a few sessions, your fears will be so minimized that they won't "get in your way". Everybody's happy.

    Here's a sample testimonial (just one of several HUNDREDS in my office) from a woman who was incredibly afraid of dogs:

    No Longer Afraid of Dogs

    So end how those fears take hold of you and control your life!  Get control of them! Call me now at 610-397-1515 for your free hypnosis screening. It'll take about 40 minutes and you'll get your life back on track.

    Hypnosis for Gymnastics & Cheerleading?

    Last updated 2 months ago

    Several years ago, I started getting requests from parents to help their children excel in cheerleading. Yes,  cheerleading!

    Not the sis-boom-bah... rah-rah-rah cheerleading, but the championship gymnastics cheerleading that compete worldwide.

    I had no idea, but this is B-I-G!

    Actually, it is huge. Cheerleading competitions are springing up all over this country (and the world!) and parents are clamoring to get their child the best in training so they have the best chance to compete on a championship level.

    Hypnosis for Gymnastics & Cheerleading? YES - hypnosis can help but HOW? Frequently, I'll get a call about someone's daughter who is on a cheerleading team. They are doing great — however....

    Then, they explain the glitch in a move, routine, etc.

    They used to do it perfectly, but....

    Then, they explain how today, they can get right up to the "move" and they freeze, stumble, fall, etc.

    And, this is a big problem for any athlete!

    So, the parents and I help the child through hypnosis, self-hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). And you know what?


    It works!

    The Patch? Nicotine Gum? Drugs?

    Last updated 2 months ago

    Almost every person coming into my office at  Plymouth Hypnosis Center says the same thing: "I tried everything! The patch, the gum, Chantix®, Wellbuterin®—even acupuncture and lasers. Nothing worked!"  

    Yes, I hear it almost every time. And, now as their last-ditch effort they come to a hypnotist. They pray and worry that this will work because everything else failed.

    But, why did all of those other methods fail? Let's look: Nicotine Replacement Systems:

    If you use the patch and the gum, you are assuming (as most people do) that the problem is an addiction to nicotine. As I wrote in a previous entry on this site, it's NOT a nicotine addiction.

    This is not medical advice, and you should do what your physician tells you to do. That said, I don't care what the research says or anything—it's not an addiction to nicotine.  When you come to my office for the free screening appointment, I'll prove it to you.

    Now, if you are using a nicotine patch or gum to quit smoking and it failed (and think about this), it failed because it's NOT the nicotine. Truly, if it was the nicotine, the patch and gum would work all of the time. Period.


    (Again, if your doctor prescribes any drugs for you, follow his or her instructions.) That said, Wellbuterin® is a powerful drug for—depression. The side effects are many:

    • Changes in appetite
    • Constipation
    • Dizziness
    • Drowsiness
    • Dry mouth
    • Headache
    • Increased sweating
    • Nausea
    • Restlessness
    • Nervousness
    • Taste changes
    • Trouble sleeping
    • Vomiting
    • Weight changes

    Are you kidding me? Oh, wait... there's more:

    Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue, unusual hoarseness); blurred vision or other vision changes; changes in sexual desire or ability; chest pain; confusion; dark urine; delusions; fainting; fast or irregular heartbeat; fever, chills, or sore throat; hallucinations; hearing problems; menstrual changes; new or worsening mental or mood changes (eg, concentration problems, depression, panic attacks, aggressiveness, agitation, anxiety, impulsiveness, irritability, hostility, exaggerated feeling of well-being, inability to sit still); red, swollen, blistered, or peeling skin; seizures; severe headache or dizziness; severe or persistent joint or muscle pain; severe or persistent nausea, vomiting, or stomach pain; severe or persistent nervousness, restlessness, or trouble sleeping; shortness of breath; suicidal thoughts or attempts; tremor; unusual swelling; yellowing of the skin or eyes.


    Most people who come to my office said they felt very "muddle-headed" with Wellbutrin®. Couldn't concentrate, etc.

    And, then there's Chantix® — Be prepared for THIS!

    Side effects? Yes, there are a few:

    • Constipation
    • Gas
    • Headache
    • Increased appetite
    • Nausea
    • Stomach upset
    • Strange dreams
    • Taste changes
    • Trouble sleeping
    • Vivid, strange, or unusual dreams
    • Vomiting

    Oh, but wait... there's more:

    Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching;  difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue; unusual hoarseness);  behavior changes; chest pain; fast, slow, or irregular heartbeat; hallucinations; memory loss; new or worsening mental or mood problems (eg, aggression, agitation, anger, anxiety, DEPRESSION, nervousness, THOUGHTS OF HURTING OTHER PEOPLE); red, swollen, blistered, or peeling skin; seizures; severe or persistent nausea;  SUICIDAL THOUGHTS OR ACTIONS; vision changes.

    From the official Chantix® web site:

    Some people have had changes in behavior, hostility, agitation, depressed mood, suicidal thoughts or actions while using CHANTIX to help them quit smoking. Some people had these symptoms when they began taking CHANTIX, and others developed them after several weeks of treatment or after stopping CHANTIX. If you, your family, or caregiver notice agitation, hostility, depression, or changes in behavior, thinking, or mood that are not typical for you, or you develop suicidal thoughts or actions, anxiety, panic, aggression, anger, mania, abnormal sensations, hallucinations, paranoia, or confusion, stop taking CHANTIX and call your doctor right away. Also tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems before taking CHANTIX, as these symptoms may worsen while taking CHANTIX.

    Some people can have serious skin reactions while taking CHANTIX, some of which can become life-threatening. These can include rash, swelling, redness, and peeling of the skin. Some people can have allergic reactions to CHANTIX, some of which can be life-threatening and include: swelling of the face, mouth, and throat that can cause trouble breathing. If you have these symptoms or have a rash with peeling skin or blisters in your mouth, stop taking CHANTIX and get medical attention right away.

    What?! Is that all? I am amazed "spontaneous combustion" isn't listed! Holy cow!

    People have "blacked-out" while driving and lawsuits pertaining to the use of this drug are mounting. In my opinion, this is one of the stupidest drugs on the market. Oh, and what are the results?

    From the official Chantix® web site:

    In studies, 44% of CHANTIX users will quit during weeks 9 to 12 of treatment (compared to 18% on sugar pill).

    If only 44% of my clients quit smoking, I'd be out of business. That's an abysmal success rate. Also, Chantix® takes up to 12 weeks to work? And, you are paying for the drug and the cigarettes (because you are smoking while using the drug, too — did you know that?).

    Twelve WEEKS?! After you quit smoking at Plymouth Hypnosis Center, in twelve weeks (if you are smoking just a pack a day) you would have saved over $500 and you would generally have quit smoking the first day!



    Side effects: NONE. 100% SAFE.

    Really. None. Except for the fact that you'll be very rested and relaxed. Nice, eh?

    Well, it's up to you now. How do you want to quit smoking? Take some drug with a bazillion side effects or a safe, effective and PROVABLE way to quit smoking now?

    Call me now at 610-397-1515 for your  free hypnosis screening. It'll take about 40 minutes and you'll be truly amazed.

    As always, results may vary.
