How to Slow Aging

“I’m happy to report that my inner child is still ageless.” James Broughton

Here are a few benefits from Hypnosis:

You sleep better;
Your memory improves;
Your cardiovscular system improves; and
You age more slowly!

Hypnosis is simply meditation with a purpose.  I teach my clients self-hypnosis so that they can continue to benefit at home.  Like meditation, hypnosis puts us into a relaxed and calm Alpha state of mind (9-13 Hz) and an even more relaxed Theta state (4-8 Hz).   These states makes people less susceptible to stress related conditions such as high blood pressure, weight gain and depresion.

DNA, our genetic code, is made up of chromosomes.  The genetic data held in the chromosomes is protected by telomeres at the end of each string of chromosomes.  As telomeres break down, they become shorter over time and aging occurs.  Think of the ends of your chromosomes becoming ragged and frayed over time.  Happily, scientific research has shown that the Theta state of mind slows the break-down of telomeres so that the genetic data is protected and the aging process slows down.

Other natural causes of aging include damage to DNA, proteins and lipids (fatty substances) caused by oxidants, which are highly reactive substances containing oxygen. Oxidants are produced normally from breathing, but also result from inflammation, infection and consumption of alcohol and cigarettes.

If you crave sugar like I do, another aging factor to consider is “glycation” which occurs when we eat glucose sugar which binds to some of our DNA, proteins and lipids.  This leaves them unable to do their jobs. The problem gets worse with age and causes body tissues to malfunction, resulting in disease and death.

Scientists believe oxidative stress, glycation, telomere shortening and chronological age – along with various genes – all work together to cause aging.  Hypnosis and meditation, moderate exercise, plus a healthy diet filled with anti-oxidants (e.g. avocados, berries, and sweet potatoes) can substantially lengthen and improve the quality of your life!
