Mothers who smoke are at increased risk of having a stillbirth, miscarriage or premature infant. Smoking while pregnant will lower the amount of oxygen available to you and your growing baby and increase your baby’s heart rate. These health factors also contribute to raising the SIDS risk for your infant, and in your child’s decreased ability to breathe correctly or take in enough oxygen for a restful, restorative sleep at night.Babies born to mothers who smoke are significantly lighter and shorter than those born to non smokers.

7 Reasons Why Smoking is Even More Hazardous for Diabetics

Here are 7 reasons why mixing diabetes with smoking is a very bad idea: 1) You are more likely to get nerve damage (neuropathy). This is because smoking affects your blood circulation and that in turn means your nerve endings are not getting the nutrients they need. If this happens to the nerves in your feet it could lead to sores and infections and, if not taken care of properly, even amputation. 2) There is an increased risk – double in fact -of you getting limited mobility in your joints. It’s no fun trying to bend, climb stairs or lift something when you have a painful joint. 3) Because of smoking you could develop kidney disease. 4) When you smoke your blood pressure increases. Increased blood pressure creates a real risk of heart disease. 5) Research has shown that diabetics who smoke increase, 3-fold, the risk of dying of heart (cardiovascular) disease. 6) By smoking you increase your blood-sugar levels. This makes it more difficult to control your diabetes because your glucose levels could be fluctuating quite dramatically.

Hypnotherapy for Smokers - Can It Help You Quit?

Hypnotherapy for Smokers – Can It Help You Quit?

When you were growing up, did you think of hypnosis in cartoon terms, such as a therapist sitting over a reclining patient, swinging a watch in front of the patient’s eyes? It’s somewhat unfortunate that many of us have this rather silly notion of hypnotism in our heads, because these days the practice of hypnosis is being used to help people overcome bad habits. One of the habits that hypnosis – or hypnotherapy – is reputed to help is smoking. What Is Hypnotherapy? Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis for therapeutic purposes. Hypnosis itself is a state of deep and focused relaxation, during which the person being hypnotized is said to be more open to suggestion. In hypnotherapy, the therapist uses visualization and relaxation techniques to relax the patient, and then the therapist attempts to “talk to” the patient’s subconscious. The therapist then makes positive suggestions to the patient. Destructive habits are said to be replaced with positive ones. Are There Any Dangers? Some people are afraid of hypnosis – what if the therapist tells you to do something crazy, or tries to infuse your mind with false memories? First of all, this really isn’t what hypnosis is about. But if you are concerned, most hypnotherapists have an option where you can record your hypnosis session. In this day and age of mobile phones and digital images,…
