Body Talk - 8th July

Lots of informative chat this week about the latest in keeping fit and healthy.

One of my favourite topics has been in the news this wek. Hypnosis.

A 67 year old lady hypnotised herself to undergo a knee operation without anaesthetic. The power of the mind is really amazing. In my own experience working with hypnosis, we are all more powerful than we realise. It's just knowing how to tap into it, which makes hypnotherapy such a wonderful tool.

Ward off dementia by keeping your blood pressure down. New research has revealed that keeping your BP down either by tablets, diet or relaxation can improve your chances of staying fit and well in your old age. Another report advises plenty of light. It has been found that people who suffer with dementia tend to sleep more during the day and are awake at night. The lack of daylight has a very negative effect on the system.

Low cal foods may not be that good for you. Researchers have found that sweeteners can actually increase the desire for sweet foods. They can cause a dissociation in the brain between energy and sweetness and disrupt it's ability to assess the calories we're consuming. In other words, you're brain doesn't know when you've had enough.
