Everything You Need to Know About Hypnosis and Addiction

Posted by on Sep 18, 2017 in Hypnosis | 0 comments

Addiction Explained

Addiction is a compulsive need and use of substances such as alcohol, nicotine, or drugs. When you are addicted to something, your tolerance for that substance or activity (gambling and porn can be characterized as addictive activities) increases and going without that produces definite physiological changes, and this is known as withdrawal.

Addiction can’t be outsmarted. It is not a defect of character, and it is more than a bad habit. At the root of addiction is often a desire to escape physical and/or psychological pain or uncomfortable emotions. As an addict, It is common to think you are alone in your suffering, but approximately 20.6 million people suffer from some form of addiction in the United States.

How does hypnosis get rid of an addiction?

Hypnosis can help individuals get rid of their addiction in a non-intrusive way. AA and 12-step programs, while effective, are not for everyone. Hypnosis may be a preferable alternative for those who are uncomfortable speaking in groups. Hypnosis can also be a powerful supplement to those who are 12-step participants but want to supplement meetings with more than just focusing on abstinence.

Hypnosis addresses the emotional and psychological issues surrounding the addiction. The philosophy behind hypnosis is not just to encourage a person to stop drinking or using drugs, but to address why they use drugs or drink in the first place. Hypnosis gets to the core of the illness rather than just treating the symptoms. Instead of teaching someone they are powerless against their addiction, hypnosis helps people fix their coping mechanisms by solving their underlying issues.

What are benefits/what can you expect from hypnosis addiction therapy?

The hypnotherapy process puts someone into a deeply relaxed state, a place where you are somewhere between being asleep and awake. You are aware of your surroundings, yet unable to direct your focus which opens your unconscious mind consciously. This allows you to receive suggestions more willingly. Hypnotherapy techniques are created to change brain triggers, stop self-sabotage issues, release trauma and redirect the neural networks in the brain. During work with a hypnotherapist, he/she will explain your behavior to you, create a strategy for change, help you change via hypnosis and/or visualization, and then evaluate your progress. Unlike what is portrayed in movies and TV, hypnosis can’t force you to do anything you don’t want to do. Hypnosis is not magic or party trick. It is a respected, scientific process that helps beat addiction.

The experts at the Orlando Hypnosis clinic say that many people find that hypnosis calms the mind, body, and releases stress and anxiety. For those who averse to taking pills, hypnosis can be a helpful alternative for them. Hypnosis is quick, easy, safe, effective. Those who undergo hypnosis experience fewer, less painful withdrawal symptoms. Hypnotherapy is not just about getting you sober but keeping you sober.  It is important to note that while hypnotherapy is effective, it shouldn’t be used as one’s primary therapy. Do not agree to undergo hypnotherapy treatment with anyone who is not a licensed mental health professional.

Civil suit strikes West Sacramento

Posted by on Aug 29, 2017 in Personal Injury | 0 comments

Kentaro Inoue, a professor at The University of California, Davis, met a cruel death last summer after he was dragged 45 feet by a Waste Management garbage truck. Inoue’s lawyer is now filing a wrongful death lawsuit against Waste Management for damages related to the incident. An article in The West Sacramento News Ledger highlighted the details of Inoue’s gruesome experience.

The professor, a 48-year-old man, was commuting to UC Davis on his bicycle from his home in Sacramento on August 31st, 2016. As reported by the West Sacramento police, Inoue was wearing a helmet and riding in a bike lane as he headed westbound on West Capitol Avenue. Craig Michael Tivey, a driver for Waste Management, was driving a large trash truck in the same area. At the time of the accident, Tivey was at a stop on Poplar Avenue waiting to turn right on red a light. Inoue rode through the intersection and in front of Tivey’s truck just before Tivey turned right onto West Capitol Avenue. At this point, Inoue was in the bike lane directly to the right of the truck and Tivey sped up to pass the bicyclist.

Upon arriving at the El Rancho Mobile Park in West Sacramento, Tivey took a sudden right turn and caused a collision. Inoue crashed into the truck on the right side when the garbage truck abruptly passed in front of his path. After the incident, Tivey told the police “he had heard and felt something” at the time of the accident. However, he assumed he was experiencing engine problems because his truck was in need of repair. A janitor tried to get Tivey’s attention so he would stop his vehicle, but it was too late. Tivey killed Inoue by dragging him 45 feet into the driveway of the mobile park.

Agnew & Brusavich is representing Amy Brown, Inoue’s wife, in a lawsuit against Tivey and Waste Management. They claim Tivey was negligent for mistaking the accident for engine issues. Tivey is also facing vehicular manslaughter charges brought by the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office. He says his truck’s mechanical problems caused his failure to recognize that he hit Inoue. According to Bruce Brusavich, “Waste Management was grossly negligent in the maintenance of its truck, and it cost Kentaro his life. Tivey had written up engine problems, but if they had been promptly resolved, Kentaro might be alive today.” Tivey will face a separate criminal jury trial on September 25, 2017.

The attorneys at Amerio Law Firm hope this lawsuit will hold Waste Management accountable for their gross negligence. When reckless drivers cause accidents, they should be held responsible for the damages they cause. Losing a loved one is a painful experience that is made worse when their death was preventable. We hope this Sacramento personal injury lawsuit offers community awareness and helps to prevent future risk of serious injury or death caused by negligent drivers.

Breast Surgery

Posted by on Aug 14, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Breasts come in all kinds of different shapes and sizes, but no matter what the shape or size, they can create problems. People can find their breasts too big, too small, too low, too different from each other, or just not the shape they desire. Changing the source of an insecurity leads to a happier and healthier life, so cosmetic breast surgeons have spent years perfecting techniques to improve their skills to give people the confidence that comes with the removal of their source of insecurity. These surgeons, such as the cosmetic breast surgeons with Bergman & Folkers Plastic Surgery, can perform:

  • Breast implant removals
  • Breast augmentations
  • Breast reconstructions
  • Breast reductions
  • Breast lifts
  • Breast lift and implant combination
  • Breast implant exchange

Large breasts are not always the goal, they can also be the problem. Large breasts can create back problems from the burden of their weight on a person, severely affect posture, and pose a significant financial burden from the cost of buying specially made brassieres and tailoring clothing to fit over the breasts. A breast reduction can improve all these problems large breasts impose.

Besides augmentations and reductions, the surgeons can also perform reconstructions, which can help recreate the shape and size of a breast after a mastectomy performed on a cancer survivor. One of the most common treatments for breast cancer is a mastectomy, a procedure in which doctors remove the breast. Breast reconstruction is now at the stage in which cosmetic breast surgeons can closely recreate the exact size and shape of the survivor’s breast.

Breast cosmetic surgery can vastly improve a person’s outlook on life by giving them the confidence they deserve, whether it be by reducing breast size to take a weight off their shoulders or by recreating what an illness took away from them.

Factors That May Influence Child Custody Decisions

Posted by on Jun 15, 2017 in Child Custody, Divorce | 0 comments

Divorce is a legal nightmare. You have to navigate through laws concerning alimony, division of assets, and division of liabilities. But it gets worse if there are children involved, because you have additional laws to navigate through, such as those relating to child custody and child support.

A child custody lawsuit is always the most emotional in the family court. This is because either parent wants to get custody. Whether the child goes to the mother or father, it doesn’t change the fact that there will be major changes in their lives.

But how is child custody decided? There are certain factors that need to be considered.

Earning Capacity

There may be a lot of factors that may influence child custody, but they boil down on the same core idea – it is for the best interest of the child. To determine best interest, each parent’s ability to provide for the child is considered, and this generally means each parent’s financial stability to give the child food, shelter, education, healthcare, and security.

Medical Condition

The physical and mental conditioning of each parent is also considered, because these things can negatively affect the child. Those with physical and mental conditions, such as illnesses and anger management issues, may have a harder time fulfilling parental obligations and may even hurt the child in the long run, so they are less likely to get custody.

Relationship with Child

It is not always about money and health. Sometimes, it is about who is closer to the child and who is doing more for the child, such as on the following domestic aspects:

  • Bonding with the child, like participating in recreational activities
  • Handling the hygiene needs of the child, like giving him a bath and changing his diaper
  • Handling the medical needs of the child, like taking him to the dentist and doctor
  • Handling the nutritional needs of the child, like preparing him meals and packing him lunches for school

Child’s Choice

A child, especially one that is already rational enough, may have a voice regarding custody. However, his choice does not top the other entries in this list, because the best interest of the child is still the absolute criteria for child custody. But in the right conditions, the child’s choice is definitely considered in the decision process in child custody.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage can be a Financial Safety Net in Accidents Caused by Uninsured/Under-insured Drivers

Posted by on Mar 1, 2017 in Car Accidents | 0 comments

Drivers and car owners are required to show proof that they have auto liability insurance whenever they register their car and renew their driver’s license; besides these, carrying auto insurance will also save them from having their license and driving privileges suspended, and from being issued a traffic ticket for violation of the insurance law which exists in all U.S. state. However, if they get involved in a car accident which is the fault of another driver who happens to be uninsured, then they end up facing financial problems because the auto insurance coverage that they carry is not for their own sake (unless they reside in a “no-fault” state), but for the sake of the person/s they hurt in an accident.

The results of car accidents often include medical treatment and hospitalization, lost wages due to absence from work, and pain and suffering. To cover these cost and losses, a victim is legally allowed to claim compensation from the at-fault driver (this compensation is supposed to be paid by the at-fault driver’s insurance provider). However, if the liable driver is uninsured, then the victim has no other choice but to file a civil lawsuit against him/her for the purpose of seeking compensation (unless the at-fault driver makes an out-of-court settlement). Meanwhile, as the court case or settlement progresses, payment for all expenses resulting from the accident will have to come from the victim’s own pocket first.

With more than 29 million drivers who freely drive on US roads and highways without carrying insurance, however, filing a civil lawsuit against at-fault drivers is a common incidence. So many drivers who comply with the insurance law are being made to suffer more because of other’s non-compliance with this same law. However, instead of solving the issue by punishing only the guilty and making them pay for the damages they have caused, aside from making sure that they purchase insurance coverage, the solution is passed back to law abiding citizens – by requiring them to get additional insurance coverage, namely, the Uninsured Motorist (UM) coverage and Underinsured Motorist (UIM) coverage.

Uninsured motorist coverage is designed to pay for all economic losses and damages suffered by victims of accidents that are blamable on uninsured drivers; this coverage can serves as a financial safety net in accidents involving stolen vehicles or hit-and-run accidents. Underinsured motorist coverage, on the other hand, is designed to supplement any insufficiency in the policy limit of the driver at fault. A policy may be insufficient to cover all damages if it amounts only to the minimum liability coverage required by a state.

The law firm Mazin & Associates, PC, says that a car accident can most likely result to a grave injury, permanent disability or death for drivers and their passengers, bystanders, motorcyclists, and cyclists. Often, however, despite the obvious harm suffered by victims, at-fault drivers and even auto insurance firms finds ways that will save them from paying victims the amount they are legally allowed to claim. Battling against at-fault drivers and auto insurance firms is the last thing injured victims should be concerned with. It would be wise for victims to let seasoned personal injury lawyers handle this legal battle for them.
