Is there any chance that you will be producing a CD in the not-too-distant future concerning overcoming phobias?

For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure, I’m delighted – no, tickled pink! (one of my mother’s favorite phrases) - to introduce one of our top content providers, a brilliant practitioner who adds two new titles to her growing library of Health Journeys titles.

This is, of course, Boston based health psychologist, hypnosis expert, Harvard affiliated researcher, and globe-trotting mind-body consultant, Carol Ginandes PhD.

Dear BR,

I have a friend who is 71 and has a chronic condition in his back. He cannot move very fast and must use a walker. I did not see any recommendations for chronic back pain in the Ask BR questions you have previously answered. Do you have a visual meditation or guided imagery audio that would help him?

We hear words like guided imagery, mindfulness, and meditation all the time, but most of us think of them as something abstract, complex, or mysterious. Actually, the essence of all of these immersive techniques involves using a powerful tool available to all of us, though we may not be aware of it. That tool is our awareness. But, the skill we need is the ability to intentionally guide our awareness.

Hello Belleruth,

I am having revision knee surgery soon and want to do everything that I can to get through it. The first surgery was very painful and unsuccessful. This time to enhance my recovery and pain control I would like to listen to your meditations/music during surgery.

When experts talk about the importance of self-care, my inner brat is rolling her eyes and thinking of sarcastic rejoinders… not that I have anything against self-care.

It’s because I’m thinking And when, exactly, am I supposed to be doing all this TLC on my busy, harried self? And I’m no different than most, especially when September rolls around and there's so much to do.

I've used your imagery for surgery and one illness. I truly believe it was helpful to me. Is there anything for glaucoma? I don't see it in your lists so I'm not sure this kind of condition is amenable to imagery. I'm hoping you might have some way to approach this. I'm not able to control it with medication any longer and I hope to avoid tricky, problematic surgery.

Emmett Miller MD is one of the truest, earliest, and brilliantest pioneers of guided imagery, ever. (He’s also a really, really nice guy, and one of the most relaxed, gentle, laid back humans I know – in other words, the guy really walks his talk.)

Hello,

There’s an odd dynamic that happens to us when we’re close to people. We don’t always notice when they’re in serious trouble. Things we’d notice immediately about a perfect stranger don’t register on us with people we love. We just tend to make accommodations and excuses for the troubled or even weird behavior of people we care about.

Hi BR,
 
I have a 16 yr old grand daughter who is frightened at night, can't sleep without a night light, and any small sound - even normal ones - causes her such anxiety, she has even asked her Dad to stay with her until she goes to sleep. This is fairly new.

Dear BR,

Is there a way to purchase as a gift? I'd like to buy some audios for a friend.
