Now that most cholesterol-lowering drugs (statins) are coming off their patents, it appears that that money train will be ending for those good folks at Big Pharma. As a result it seems that researchers have ‘discovered’ that the true danger to the heart isn’t high cholesterol, after all. Fascinating how these things work, isn’t it?
people often abuse food to suppress boredom, anxiety, sadness, anger or other unwanted emotions. In integrative medicine, we use hypnosis, acupuncture and whole food supplements to address almost any issues, as needed. And while there may be more than one factor involved with cravings, when emotionally based eating issues come to the fore, we choose hypnosis to curb overeating.
Environmental toxins (heavy metals, chemicals, viruses, etc.) and overworked, even exhausted organs, can keep your body from getting the nutrients it requires. In an attempt to feed your system these essential vitamins and minerals, you’ll eat–almost anything (even as your mind is telling you it’s junk!). This well-meaning response won’t correct an intrinsic nutritional deficiency or a metabolic imbalance.
It’s a common belief that we are who we are, and our ‘cravings’ as such, are a part of our essential fabric.

It’s simply a matter of finding the key that unlocks that door, opening the door, and walking through it.
