Eczema: Quit Smoking and Quit Scratching

Eczema is an umbrella term used to cover a wide array of itchy dermatitis manifestations. Eczema symptoms can generally be mitigated and controlled, but they have a

tendency to flare up when exposed to internal and external irritants. Some of the main eczema enemies are food allergies and pollen, but many people do not realize that smoking cigarettes can actually trigger and intensify eczema symptoms as well. Hence, people who have eczema need to quit smoking in order to find relief from all the redness, itching and scratching. Let’s have a more in depth look at how and why this can be done.

The Symptoms of Exzema

As anyone suffering from the condition will tell you, eczema is no fun. The following symptoms accompany an eczema outbreak on the skin:

  • Rashes
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Itching
  • Burning
  • Flaking
  • Cracking
  • Bleeding
  • Dryness

Though not fatal, eczema is extremely uncomfortable and unsightly; the redness and swelling often lead people to be embarrassed or ashamed of their eczema-filled body parts. Eczema cannot be cured; instead, it must be controlled by way of treatments that include various creams and ointments. Eczema treatments can either be homeopathic (herbs etc.) or mainstream (various doses of steroids).

Irritants Including Smoking Aggravate the Skin

Controlling eczema is all about keeping the skin away from irritants. Lotions, the sun, junk food, and perfumes can all trigger an eczema attack. Cigarettes are also extremely irritating to eczema, as tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 toxins waiting to attack every pore on the skin. And cigarettes not only affect smokers—tobacco smoke also triggers the eczema of people in its vicinity. This is why it so important eczema sufferers to quit smoking. Cigarettes smoke makes it too difficult to control the all the itching, burning and even bleeding and cracking.

Suggestions to Help with Ezcema

The good news for eczema smokers with a tobacco habit is that there are many ways to quit smoking. One that is particularly helpful is hypnotherapy. This is because it gets to the core of the smoking issue by helping people re-shape the thoughts and beliefs they associate with this dangerous psychosocial habit. Hypnotherapy can really help anyone who is affected by eczema quit smoking for healthier skin.

Quit Smoking and Quit Snoring

Quit Smoking with Hypnosis to Stop snoring

Quit Smoking with Hypnosis to Stop snoring FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Around 30% of the population snores while they sleep, an indication that something is obstructing the movement of air during their time of much needed rest.

Factors Contributing to Snoring

There are many factors that contribute to snoring—sleep apnoea, weak muscles, drugs—but one common habit that exaggerates the condition is smoking. Hence, people who snore really need to quit smoking if they want to have a more restful sleep for themselves and those they share the bed with. Let’s take a closer look at exactly how smoking affects snoring to further underscore the importance of giving up the habit.

A study led by Karl Franklin, MN, PhD, of the University Hospital in Umeå, Sweden found that the more people smoked, the more often they suffered from snoring and snoring-related problems. These include irritability, daytime drowsiness, low libido and difficulties with focus. The main reason that smoking contributes to snoring problems is because it irritates the upper airways of the human respiratory system. This causes inflammation and ultimately snoring. Anytime the airways are obstructed, the risk of snoring increases. Smoking continuously obstructs the airways, causing mucus blockages and damaging cilia.

Can Secondhand Smoke Cause Snoring

Second-hand smoke is just as harmful with regard to snoring as direct tobacco inhalation. Consequently, smoking can cause snoring problems for anyone in regular contact with the smoker’s environment. This alone should be cause enough for people to want to quit smoking.

The decision to quit smoking is not easy to face alone. Not only does it require great willpower and patience on the part of the smoker, it also requires support from family, friends, and especially health professionals. One health type of health professional that can really help in the quit smoking quest is Quit Smoking hypnosis. Hypnotherapists assist smokers in developing new attitudes and beliefs towards cigarettes, helping them recognize that smoking is a psychosocial habit that they has the power to control. Quit smoking hypnosis enables smokers to realize they no longer a need to attach cigarettes to positive or negative emotional experiences—they can learn to mentally detach from the existence of cigarettes altogether.

Smoking and Asthma – Secondhand Smoke: What You Need to Know

Asthma - Use Quit Smoking Hypnosis

Asthma – Use Quit Smoking Hypnosis

There are millions of asthma sufferers on the planet and if you are a smoker, they need your help: they need you to quit smoking so that they can breathe better. Secondhand smoking isn’t only damaging your health—your secondhand smoke is damaging the health of those around you. Let’s take a closer look at the dangers of secondhand smoke in general and vis-à-vis asthma.

There are many ways secondhand smoke harms non-smokers.

However it is especially hazardous to those suffering from respiratory illnesses such as asthma. Asthma is a chronic inflammation of the airways in the respiratory system. Cigarette smoke is extremely hazardous to people with asthma. It triggers asthma attacks and increases the severity of the attacks.

What Happens with Smoking

Inhaling tobacco smoke allows the toxins and irritating substances in the smoke to settle in the moist areas of the airways. This is what triggers an asthma attack. It also makes the attack more intense than usual and more difficult to recover.  Since the cilia in the airways are damaged they cannot sweep the toxin and junk away and help the breathing process even out.

Smoking also causes major mucus build ups which can be hazardous to asthma sufferers as this further blocks their airways. Additionally, if someone is suffering from a cold or other respiratory illness, inhaling secondhand smoke makes it more difficult for them to clear out the excess gunk and junk backed up in their airways.

How Does Smoking Affect Children

Aside from secondhand smoke exaggerating preexisting asthma, secondhand smoke can also cause new cases of asthma to develop especially in small children. Small children have small and delicate bodies and they breathe much more rapidly than adults. This rapid breathing causes them to inhale more toxins from secondhand smoke than an adult or teenager. This can cause damage to their airways which can cause asthma to develop or lead to other respiratory illnesses and difficulties.

How can I Quit Smoking

If you are struggling with a smoking habit then you need not feel ashamed. You just need to take action! Quitting smoking isn’t the easiest path to follow. Yet it is among the most rewarding thing you can do for yourself and of course those around you. Getting rid of your tobacco habit will set you on the path to better emotional and physical health in the long run. So have courage and quit smoking! Save your life and the lives of those around you!

Smoking Hurts Your Feet!

Smoking hurts your feet

Most smokers are well aware of the risks associated with smoking: lung cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, emphysema and many more. But many smokers suffer from a more puzzling tobacco-induced symptom: chronic foot pain. Difficulty walking, nasty sores that won’t go away, swollen feet that can’t fit into shoes—these are just a few of problems associated with smokers’ chronic foot pain. The only way to get rid of these troublesome symptoms is to quit smoking. But before we tackle how to quit smoking, let’s first get a better understanding of why smoking makes the feet ache.

Why Smoking Makes Your Feet Ache

Smoking causes chronic foot pain because of a condition known as peripheral arterial disease or PAD. PAD is caused by the build-up of excess plaque in the arteries. Particularly vulnerable to this build-up are the legs and feet. As the veins and arteries clog up, blood has a harder time circulating through the legs and feet and this can cause pain, numbness and foot sores that do not heal. PAD is a nasty problem and smokers are four times as likely to develop it as non-smokers due to the way in which tobacco smoke ravages the cardiovascular system.

How to Avoid Aching Feet

The best way to avoid developing PAD is to quit smoking. Within hours after the last cigarette puff, the body begins to heal. It is almost never too late to mitigate smoking risks by quitting. There are a many quit smoking methods out there. A particularly effective approach to quitting smoking is  quit smoking hypnosis. Quit smoking hypnosis can be done alone or under the watchful eye of a hypnotherapist. Quit smoking hypnosis’s goal is to help the smoker create new systems of beliefs and new thought processes vis-à-vis smoking so that they no longer depend on tobacco products for psychological soothing.

Quit Smoking Hypnosis

Hypnosis gets to the root of the psychosocial smoking habit. This gives smokers the power to take control of their thoughts, emotions and habits so that these processes can guide them in a healthier direction for their bodies and minds.

Aches Pains Numbness in the feet?

Smoking is very likely the culprit. Smoking is a psychosocial habit and it will make your feet hurt—but only if you let it. The power to quit smoking rests in your hands and your hands alone.

Becoming a Non Smoker

Did you ever smoke and are you now a non smoker? You must feel that sense of pride and achievement, and no doubt very, very happy and relieved. Yes, and of course it is an achievement and you have made it – so well done!

Receiving lots of comments and congratulations?

Family are usually the ones who appreciate the sacrifice and effort you have made because they are the ones who worry about you. Clients often tell me that their partner hasn’t made them give up.

Hugh Hamilton

Hugh Hamilton-Smoking killed him at age 47

However so often the smell, mess and worry about their partners health as a smoker is the true reality of their concern and silence. They feel helpless as I did with my husband when he continued to smoke. Being a trained nurse and knowing the facts, resulted in a great deal of stress especially with four young children. When my husband had his first heart attack, I was scared and worried, even more worried when he decided he wanted to work in PNG. Thankfully the hospital on Bougainville was the best equipped hospital in PNG. So we were blessed.

Twenty months later when he had his second heart attack I was working as the Nursing Superintendent at the hospital. The Medical Superintendent medivac’d him out the next day so he was in Brisbane when they diagnosed him two days later with extensive lung cancer. This had caused a blockage of one of the main arteries to his heart resulting in his heart attack. I sent one of the trained staff to travel with him so I could stay with the children.

The dangers of living on Bougainville

At that time Bougainville was becoming more isolated with the violence; the airport had been destroyed along with all the planes except one which had been severely damaged. However the staff were able to repair the plane sufficiently which allowed it to continue flying. It was a difficult time as I had two children still on the island. However a very dear friend agreed to care for the children until we could organise flights out of Bougainville. They also packed up our house which was a huge task. Such kindness is never forgotten as another very kind person gave up their seat on the next available flight to allow me to travel to Brisbane all the while unsure of how my husband was doing. We had to make four stops including an overnight stay in Cairns due to the problems on Bougainville. At every stop I wasn’t sure if I had a seat on the next flight as I hadn’t booked. However the airline used their emergency seating to accommodate me. When I arrived in Brisbane my husband was very sick as they had started chemotherapy. There was such a lot of cancer the body struggled to remove the dead cells from the cancer and chemo.

What about the Children?

I was delighted when the children arrived three days later and we could spend time with their father. We had 11 months with him before he died a most unpleasant death having gone through chemo and later on radiotherapy when he was diagnosed with brain tumours. However I will always look back on those 11 months and feel gratitude for this time with him. Wherever I can, I will continue to help other families so their loved one can have additional time with them. So love your partner, families and the world at large. You have had your life extended by up to 14 years now so love your life and enjoy those people around you.

Illness after Quitting Smoking

Have you ever heard of people getting sick, days or even months after quitting smoking? You may wonder why this could happen. After all aren’t you supposed to feel healthier as a non smoker? There are a number of factors why this may happen.

Quit Smoking Hypnosis

Quit Smoking with Hypnosis

However breathing is a big factor.

You see when a person is smoking they take deep breaths with every puff from a cigarette. Once a person quits smoking, especially if it is immediate as in hypnosis, then there is no longer a need to take those deep breaths. So the breathing becomes more shallow. We would probably refer to this as ”normal breathing”. However the lungs have been used to expanding consistently over usually, many years. Suddenly stopping this pattern of deep breathing can be detrimental to a healthy future for the lungs. In fact due to the build up of tar and other unhealthy toxins in the body and especially the lungs, it is even more important to continue taking those deep breaths.

Paul was a recent client who quit smoking with the local hypnotherapist Maureen Hamilton. He was saying that he had quit smoking 2 years early with a hypnotherapist in Melbourne and 2 months later was in a hospital ICU with pneumonia. A doctor walked in and made the comment, “You recently stopped smoking?” Paul replied that he had quit 2 months earlier. The doctor then said, “Yes, plus 8 other patients in the hospital, all with pneumonia.”

What should a smoker do when they quit

So if you are a smoker and have given up recently, it is important you continue to take those 5 deep breaths as often as you can remember. So how can you remember? Hypnotherapist Maureen Hamilton suggests tie it in with when you are eating as most people eat 3 meals plus 2 snacks a day. However if you were a heavy smoker, then perhaps tie it in with when you would normally have a cigarette. When you do need to really expand the lungs to avoid complications.

Water is also very important however this and other important information regarding quitting smoking can be found on this website.

Will Quit Smoking Improve My Skin

Quit Smoking Hydrates the Skin

Quit Smoking Hydrates the Skin

The health risks of smoking are seemingly endless: Heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, cancers of vital organs, and many others. Add skin improvement to the pages-long list of reasons to quit smoking. From wrinkles to poor complexion to bags under your eyes, smoking is simply detrimental for your skin. Since smoking limits blood flow and limits oxygen supply in the blood, your skin is not getting the proper nutrients it needs to look its best. You may begin to notice the effects of smoking in your face as the blood vessels around your eyes and mouth make your skin appear saggy and as wrinkles begin to form. Years of smoking can even lead to such chronic conditions as psoriasis, deep wrinkles, and irreversible skin discoloration.

Can Skin Damage be Prevented

If you’re a smoker, no matter how much moisturizer you use or how much water you drink, you cannot prevent the damage smoking will do to your skin. However, once you quit smoking, you will be able to slowly see an improvement in your complexion. As nutrients are able to flow correctly again, your skin will appear brighter and healthier, because it is brighter and healthier!

Your skin after quitting smoking

After quitting smoking, you will undoubtedly feel better, but you’ll look better too. The first thing you may notice is the stains on your fingers and fingernails disappearing. Your skin will become better hydrated and feel more full of life and elasticity. Aside from improvements in your skin, your teeth may even become whiter. Your wrinkles won’t go away overnight, but if they truly bother you, there are many vitamin-enriched products available without a prescription. For the best skincare routine once you’ve quit, consult a dermatologist.

Being able to properly care for your skin is just another reason to quit smoking. So, how can you quit?

How hypnotherapy can make you into a nonsmoker

Medical professionals and smokers alike agree that smoking is an extremely tough habit to break. It’s safe to assume most smokers are aware of the health risks, but they smoke anyway. People don’t start smoking with the intent of being a lifelong smoker. It happens because smoking begins to control your life. As a smoker, you cannot go without a cigarette at certain points throughout your day because it is an ingrained habit.

There are many treatment methods out there that aim to help you quit smoking, but what they don’t do is completely and mentally eliminate the habit. These treatments don’t make you less likely to want a cigarette.

This is how hypnotherapy is different. In just one session (with a good hypnotherapist), you can become a nonsmoker for life, and you’ll notice the benefits in your skin shortly thereafter. In order for hypnotherapy to be successful in its mission, you must be completely ready for the process. Any doubts will cloud your mind, and hypnotherapy will not work. To ensure you’re ready, your hypnotherapist will help you feel confident that you can fully trust him or her to help you.

Why Quit Smoking For Surgery

If you’re scheduled for an operation and are currently a smoker, it’s essential that you stop smoking in order to prevent any complications. Even if your procedure is minimally invasive, smoking has the potential to severely affect your body, even during recovery.

Quit Smoking Hypnosis

Why quit smoking for surgery?

Smoking limits blood flow and oxygen in the blood. This affects everything from your surgical wound(s) to your heart and blood pressure. Since smoking also negatively affects your immune system, smoking puts your body at a heightened risk of infection after your surgery, not to mention a higher risk of scarring after recovery, too. Your doctor or anesthesiologist may even refuse to operate on you if you continue smoking until your scheduled operation.

How long before your operation should you quit smoking?

Every doctor will say something different. Some may suggest a week, some a month, and some may even say as little as a day is enough. For some operations, doctors may even request you be a nonsmoker a year beforehand. You should quit before your operation no matter what, but make sure to follow your doctor’s specific instruction. Of course, some surgeries are more risky than others and will call for different preparation. It depends on what your operation involves.

Many people use their future procedure as a good reason to quit smoking. It puts your body at such heightened risk that it simply isn’t worth it.

But, if you quit smoking before your operation, you shouldn’t do it with the intention of picking the habit back up once you’ve recovered. It may be several months or even longer before you recover, but you still may find the want to pick up a cigarette.

How can you quit smoking before your operation and be sure you won’t want a cigarette ever again?

Hypnotherapy can help

If you’re dedicated to quitting smoking before your upcoming procedure, hypnotherapy is an ideal solution. Instead of struggling for months with nicotine patches, gums, and pills, you can be a nonsmoker after just one session with a good hypnotherapist. This way, you won’t have to stress about being a nonsmoker before your operation. As long as you find a hypnotherapist you can trust and one that you’re confident in, you will be successful if you really want to quit.

If you want to quit only because your operation is coming up, and you still think you may want to smoke after recovery, hypnotherapy will not work. You need to be completely dedicated to the mission and to the idea that it is right for you at this point in your life. Any doubts about you being a nonsmoker will only prevent the hypnotherapy from working.

It might take time for you to know when you’re ready, but when you are, you’ll know. Think about why you started smoking in the first place, why you continued to smoke, and why you want to quit. Make sure that quitting smoking is more important to you than just surgery prep.

Where Can I Quit Smoking

If you’re ready to quit smoking, there are seemingly many options out there—nicotine patches, nicotine gums, e-cigarettes, and even prescription pills. All of these options promise to help you quit smoking by physically interacting with your body, but what these treatments lack is mental intervention. You are still a smoker during these treatments, and you very well may still fight the urge to have a cigarette. Although the more traditional methods are readily available from your doctor or local convenience store, many people do not find permanent results in them. If your urge to smoke is still there, it’s easy to pick back up during treatment or very shortly after.

Smoking is a habit.

At first, you may enjoy having a cigarette, but once you become a smoker, grabbing a cigarette becomes automatic. You become controlled by it. If you want to quit successfully, you need to break this habit, which is easier said than done if you have unsuccessfully quit in the past. Think about how difficult it would be to get rid of another habit you have, like biting your nails or cracking your knuckles. Instead of repairing the habit of smoking, you need to prevent it from occurring in order to quit long-term. This is how hypnosis can help.

Why Hypnosis to Quit Smoking

Hypnosis, if done correctly and with appropriate intentions, is much more effective than any other method to quit smoking. If you’re asking yourself where you can quit smoking, find an accredited hypnotherapist near you and start a conversation. He or she can give you the materials you need to begin your hypnotherapy journey to becoming a nonsmoker. Before your session, your hypnotherapist should provide you with audio and reading materials to help you make sure that you’re ready.

What makes hypnosis different?

Compared to more traditional methods to quit smoking, hypnosis is unique in that it eliminates your urges to smoke after just one session. It isn’t like a nicotine patch, where you have to use it for a long period of time while fighting cigarette cravings.

To begin your hypnotherapy journey to quit smoking, you must be completely prepared without any doubts. Doubt will get in the way of your treatment. In order for it to be successful, you need to be confident in your want to be a nonsmoker. Remind yourself what made you become a smoker, and what makes you want to quit. You must also be confident that you are with the right hypnotherapist. This ensures that you will be able to put your trust in him or her.

You should also anticipate how you’ll take physically care of yourself after hypnotherapy. In addition to tar still being in your lungs, your breathing will have to adapt to that of a nonsmoker. Fully recovering will require some respiratory therapy in order to revive your lungs and get them healthy again.

Once you understand how your hypnotherapy session will work, and once you are fully confident that you will come out a nonsmoker, you are ready!

5 Reasons Smoking Wrinkles Your Skin

Most info relayed about the hazards of smoking centers on the internal effects of the bad habit: cancer, heart disease, emphysema, indigestion etc.

Help for your Skin and Body

But smoking also affects the external body, the skin in particular. Thus, a good reason to quit smoking is to keep the skin looking youthful and healthy—smokers tend to have skin that looks as wrinkly as a dried up prune!

So why does smoking contribute to early wrinkling?

Here are 5 of the main smoking factors contributing to baggy, saggy, splotchy skin:

  • Decreased Collagen: Smoking decreases the collagen levels in the skin; collagen is a group of proteins responsible for the skin’s elasticity.
  • Decreased Oxygen: Smoking contributes to lower oxygen levels in the body which in turn causes the surface area of the body, the skin, to be poorly oxygenated.
  • Poor Circulation: Smoking negatively affects the body’s circulatory system and therefore prevents blood capillaries from reaching and nourishing the upper layers of the skin.
  • Nicotine: The blood capillaries that are able to reach the upper layers of the skin are constricted by nicotine, making them smaller in size and less nutritionally effective.
  • Slow Healing: Smoking meddles with the body’s ability to heal, the skin included. Hence, skin wrinkles easier and is more prone to sores and scarring.

It may seem a bit superficial, but smoking’s negative impact on the skin is a very compelling reason to quit the dangerous psychosocial habit. While many people claim that it is too difficult to quit smoking, that line of thinking is utter nonsense; in fact, the core belief that quitting smoking is impossible is what makes it impossible. Quitting smoking is a very attainable goal for people who are willing to put in the time and effort.

How Can I Quit Smoking

One method that is particularly helpful vis-à-vis smoking cessation is quit smoking hypnosis. Quit smoking hypnosis helps smoker’s identify the core beliefs and thought processes that keep them smoking. This enables them to re-wire such faulty thinking so that they no longer depend on cigarettes for emotional gratification or stress relief.

Quit smoking hypnosis is an easy task. However very few people who are still smokers are hesitant about making the decision to access the most successful way to quit smoking. However it is a worthwhile task. The long-term health benefits, such as healthier, younger looking skin, are very much worth the effort.

Not only does it wrinkle the skin it also ages the person. People are more prone to infections of the skin and also other areas of their body. The immune system is also impacted.

Smoking is a psychosocial habit that contributes to the development of wrinkly skin. If you are someone who is struggling with a smoking habit, and are concerned about how it could be negatively impacting your skin, please contact Maureen Hamilton for more details or share your own ideas and experiences with us on Twitter.
