Musings on Why Diabetics Don't Take Better Care of Themselves




Devin Hastings has written a thought-provoking article on the American Chronicle web site covering the ins and outs of diabetes and how hypnosis might play a part in improving their quality of life. 

I'd like to point out and amplify his recommendation of Michael Yapko's books.  They are a treasure trove of information and, as you might imagine from anything I recommend, Yapko sticks to the solid technique and avoids faux mysticism and appeals to quantum physics.  I would expect nothing less from someone of Yapko's credentials, but with the deluge of Law of Attraction stuff out there, it's worth pointing out the value of the lack of "the secret".  :-)

Back to diabetes and hypnosis - in the specific diabetic cases where weight loss and exercise would be of benefit, it's possible that a good hypnotist could really help out.  Even simple motivation techniques designed to get people running, lifting weights, practicing martial arts, etc would be a boon; who wouldn't benefit from some exercise?  For specifics, check out Devin Hastings' article, which is a refreshing look at hypnosis among a sea of sensationalist media.

Hi Steve,

Many thanks for recommending my article (as well as spreading the light about Dr. Yapko's work.)

I have many more articles on my hypnosis website that give a great deal of information.

Wishing you an excellent and interesting day.
