Hot Flashes CAN Be Reduced!

Hot flashes??? How big of a problem is it really?   

According to a Study of Women’s Health, an estimated 70% of U.S. women have hot flashes at some point.

In 2008, the Journal Of Clinical Oncology: Official Journal Of The American Society Of Clinical Oncology reported in an article entitled “Randomized Trial of a Hypnosis Intervention for Treatment of Hot Flashes Among Breast Cancer Survivors”  that, “By the end of the treatment period, hot flash scores decreased 68% from baseline to end point.  Significant improvements in self-reported anxiety, depression, interference of hot flashes on daily activities, and sleep were observed for patients who received the hypnosis intervention in comparison to the no treatment control group.”

Did you catch that? 68% reduction! How awesome is that?

But it gets even better.  A friend informed me of their local ABC station’s report on October 29th, 2012.   ABC Eyewitness News 7 in CA, reported that Baylor University scientists had released a study of 187 women that demonstrated a 75% reduction in hot flashes verified by hard data from skin sensors.

You read that right! A 75% reduction! Pretty amazing isn’t it?

And this US News article entitled, Hypnosis May Ease Hot Flashes in Postmenopausal Womenreported that after 12 weeks, the hypnosis group reported 74% fewer hot flashes, while the comparison group reported 17% fewer.

And this Science Daily article: Clinical Hypnosis Can Reduce Hot Flashes After Menopause
states, “Hypnotic relaxation therapy reduced hot flashes by as much as 80%.” That’s an
80% reduction

Hot flashes do NOT have to control and affect your life so drastically.  You can sleep better and feel better.  Call me today for a FREE 30 minute screening consultation.
