  Two weeks ago my blog was on opioids. In response someone sent me a copy of a recent survey from the CDC - the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. They studied 1.3 million non-cancer patients. Here’s what they found:

Today I’m talking about opioids, a topic I’ve had on this blog before. A couple of weeks ago was National Opioid Awareness Week in Minnesota. It’s not just there, but across the country. When I published my book 8 months ago, Breaking Free from Pain and Opioids: Discovering the Hypnosis Option, 78 people died each day from prescription opioids and heroin. Today it is 91 people each day.  Hypnosis is a viable alternative for pain management with no addiction or negative side effects. The worse that can happen is that it doesn’t work. Our legislators need help. They can curb how many prescriptions doctors write, but they aren’t offering other solutions because they aren’t aware. Many of my clients want to know what they can do - write your representatives and senators and tell them that there are other options for them to explore. Hypnosis isn’t the only answer or the entire answer, but it is a piece of the puzzle. For those of you that have had a loved one or someone you know that is addicted to opioids, this is an opportunity for you to do something about it! I’m Roberta Fernandez, a Board Certified Hypnotist and Certified Trainer at The FARE Hypnosis Center, helping you take back control by unlocking the power of your mind to reach your goals of any kind.

I can’t believe it’s taken so long to talk about pain -  the subject that sold ME on hypnosis. I had a bilateral full knee (both at the same time) replacement and took no pain meds - just used hypnosis to help with my recovery and had no pain. You may have language centers, auditory and visual centers i your brain, but there are no pain centers there. We ‘feel’ pain based on what our brain thinks it should feel like - from our experiences and what we’ve been told. You can reduce, eliminate, or change how you feel ‘pain’ before the nerve impulse reaches your brain. If you want to feel it like a tickle, or react to it through laughter, it’s up to you. With good instruction, hypnosis, and practice you CAN manage pain by turning down the volume or changing the perception of it. I’m Roberta Fernandez, a Board Certified Hypnotist and Certified Trainer at The FARE Hypnosis Center, located in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Let us help you take back control by unlocking the power of your mind to reach your goals of any kind.
