Herbal Medicine: Everything You Need To Know

Herbal medicine dates back to a time before iPads and even radio frequencies, it is a practice that has been used for centuries. It is the practice that takes herbs and spices and used to form natural remedies. Although during the previous centuries, they did not have as much access to the herbs we have today, they still were able to perfect their methods and transcribe that knowledge to the herbal medicine we know today.

The Many Benefits of Medical Hypnosis

Medical hypnosis is not something that is new to the medical field, these techniques date back to the 1800’s when hypnosis was first introduced. Although, the ideas are the same, the methods have only grown since that era into what we know them as today. Medical hypnosis truly has seen some great results in the last few decades; the number of patients who reap the benefits is truly astronomical.

The reason that this training helps so many is because it is able to adapt into the subconscious to help take the patient to the next level of awareness. When you are able to break that barrier, there is a free flow of room for the patient to address their issues and start treatment. This type of treatment is ideal for an individual who has trouble addressing their issues or has repressed feelings about a situation.

Some of the situations that would benefit from medical hypnosis would be:

  • Pain management
  • Weight management
  • Stress
  • Emotional situations
  • Sleep disorders
  • Behavioral addictions

Since most of these are deep-rooted issues, medical hypnosis would be a proper diagnosis because it is able to take the patient to a relaxed state. When in this relaxed state, the individual can express themselves and be more open to treatment.

What Is Motivational Interviewing and Who Needs It

What is Motivational Interviewing?

Motivational interviewing is a counseling approach that dates back to the early 1980’s, when behavioral studies were vastly popular. It was developed with the notion to help seek out the intentions of the client’s behavior and to have them recognized in a client to patient setting. The group setting is to help increase the individual’s motivation to change; something that we believe has a strong effectiveness with our doctors. The interview is to focus on the matters that the patient has, any deep-rooted issues that are tied to their behaviors or additions.

Who Needs It?

Motivational interviewing is used for individuals who need to change a type of behavior, but possibly have not recognized their behavior is an issue. When it was first developed, MI was intended to help the behaviors of alcoholics. Although, in the decades that it has been able to flourish, MI is used to treat various types of addictions and situations. Some of the most common patients are those who are
• dependent on various substances
• a patient who needs help mental health coaching
• a gambling addiction
• behavioral issues
