Dear Belleruth,
My eight-year-old daughter is currently experiencing anxiety about being separated from me. She is anxious about school. She sometimes gets so upset that she gets physically sick, vomits, gets headaches, stomach aches, etc.

I am at a loss as to what would be best for her….

Even if parents are thrilled to have their kids up early and out of the house for a reliable chunk of the day, back-to-school time can still be pretty stressful….  
Is it my imagination, or is back-to-school time getting earlier and earlier?

How do I get the guided imagery for PTSD that has the military-friendly language that Soldiers can relate to – you played it for the docs at the U of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine…

Well, it’s finally the week we’ve been anxiously awaiting … Moving Week.   

Apparently, we’ve chosen one of the biggest moving weeks of the entire year.  And, rightfully so!

Question: I usually fall asleep while listening to guided imagery. I know you’ve mentioned that’s okay, and you tell us the messages are still getting in and that we can benefit from them. Can you explain how that works?
Thank you,

Akron, Ohio has been good to us for more than 18 years. We’ve evolved and blossomed, made friends and fond memories, but it’s time for Health Journeys to go home.

I have been experiencing anxiety and panic about my health, catastrophic thinking. I can’t seem to stop ruminating.

 I can’t seem to stop ruminating. Your anxiety/panic CD has been helpful. I’m wondering if you could recommend others that would help me get out of the catastrophic, ruminating thinking.

Thanks so much for doing these CD’s, and thank you for your help!

Question:

“OK what is mindfulness training & where can I get some?!!!  Yesterday at work I had a very stressful day, and by afternoon, I noted some definite cognitive deterioration…. couldn't hold a thought in my head. Please advise.”

Remember when the word “hypnosis” conjured up images of a stage Svengali snookering some hapless volunteer from the audience to walk like a duck and cluck like a chicken?

Well, according to a just-published University of Birmingham research analysis, hypnosis and hypnotherapy have come a long way from that perception. The investigators show most people are open to using it for medical or psychotherapeutic purposes.

Question:

BR,

I work with kids who are healing from burn trauma at a local children’s hospital burn center. Do you think imagery and relaxation could help with the itch problem in healing burn injury? The children do a great deal of damage scratching and complicate their recovery.

During this week of the Fourth of July, I’m focused on the idea I grew up with of what is the classic American Hero. 

I was born during World War II, infused with an ideal of a certain post-war, iconic, American male. In the movies, he was best exemplified by Gary Cooper in High Noon and Gregory Peck in To Kill a Mockingbird - both won Oscars for Best Actor, by the way.

This hero figure was gallant, brave and principled, protecting the weak and doing what was right, even at great personal cost.
