Smokers risk aging skin with acne

A study of 1,000 women found over 40% those who smoked had non-inflammatory acne, characterized by blocked pores, large white heads and small cysts. Smoking is already known to cause premature aging of the skin. Many of the smokers who I have worked with confess that they don't like the smell of smoke or the way smoking controls their life. Many have become closet smokers and have shame and guilt around their smoking. While they don't like smoking many find themselves powerless to quit on their own.

A smoker of 30 years, who visited our retreat center last year, recently wrote to say thanks for helping her to release cigarettes. She shared: After feeling controlled by cigarettes for over 30 years I have been free since my visit to Sedona. The EFT session with you flipped a switch in my head and I have not craved cigarettes since that day. It is a wonderful feeling to take my power back from the nasty habit. I feel much more energy and in addition I have released 40 pounds since that same visit.

It is a wonderful feeling to assist guests to find the strength within themselves to take their power back from cigarettes.
COPD is an umbrella term for a range of progressive chronic lung diseases, such as emphysema and bronchitis, which block the airways and restrict oxygen flow around the body. More than a million people who smoke are thought to have COPD, but many have not been diagnosed.

If you are a smoker you can take your power back and choose not to smoke. EFT and Hypnotherapy are a powerful tool to assist in releasing the urge to smoke.

Saudi women challenge driving ban

As a woman I started driving at age 15 as most American women do. I grew up on a farm in Tennessee where women were dominated by their husbands. However this level of domination is completely unimaginable, and I hope the Saudi women can win their independence.

Speaking of independence,let's look at some of the other things we need to take our power back from, like old habits. What habit do you have that you would like to claim independence from? I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist and I also work with EFT to assist people to take their power back from habits. I have great results assisting clients to stop smoking, loose weight, and take their power back from depression and other addictive emotions. You might be thinking-- are emotions addictive? More on that later.
