Greetings from Andy Weil’s Seabourn Wellness Cruise up through the Inner Passage of Alaska, where the surroundings are magnificent, the amenities luxurious, and the integrative medicine information plentiful and inspiring.

Dear BR,

I'm wondering what the best cds would be for grief around the loss of health that will not be the same again and how this change affects relationships/work/options, etc.

 Every week, we get questions from far and wide about our guided imagery - how it works, who can use it, how much time it takes, etc.  So, today we've dedicated our weekly update to answering some of the most popular and frequently asked questions we get via phone, social media, ask BR, or carrier pigeon....

Dear BR,

Are there gender differences on how people respond to guided imagery? (My guess is that it may be more difficult for males than females.)

Here’s to all the fathers out there, juggling love and work, to do their best for their kids.  Chances are, they’re more actively involved with their children’s lives than their own fathers were with theirs.  Happy Father’s Day to all of them!

Have you ever thought about putting together something for someone’s daily commute? I’m not sure how you would create it, but I’d definitely like to have something to help me stay calm during my commutes to and from work. They are a significant daily stressor for me.

My cousin has been dealing with Parkinson’s for many years. Do you have a tape that could possibly help him - he has a very poor attitude about his condition, I’m sure he is depressed. I have tried to help him but he does not want my help, he lives very far from me - maybe one of your CDs would help him. Thank you, Julia

Part 2 of our stellar interview with Dr. Traci Stein: award-winning author, health psychologist, pet photographer, New Yorker, and practitioner behind some of our most-loved audios.  PS - In case you missed it, here's a quick 6-minute video from Traci's Facebook takeover where she demonstrates how you can use self-hypnosis to achieve a goal (and leave mental noise behind)!

Dear Belleruth,

If you think of allergies (seasonal ones like mold or grasses) like PTSD, your body is reacting to something which is not a threat as if it is a threat.  Can hypnotherapy allow your body to realize this and stop overreacting?

Hello.

We’re very excited to be bringing back to our recording studio the brilliant health psychologist and hypnotherapist, Dr. Carol Ginandes. We’ve managed to seduce her away from her teaching perch at Harvard to record two new audio programs for us – one for people with Tinnitus and one for those with TMJ or temperomandibular joint disorder.

We chatted up the insanely talented Dr. Traci Stein to learn more about the practitioner behind some of our best-loved audios! The result was an interview so good, we have to split it into 2 parts:

I have a question regarding an advanced level dementia resident that has high anxiety and becomes very anxious with environmental stimulation (noise, other residents that act out, loud TV’s, etc.) . He is able to express to staff when his anxiety level rises. When he does, we removed him from the chaos (stressor) and a caregiver will sit with him in a quiet place to redirect and help him to lower his anxiety.

I feel that your play away would be very effective for him. What pre-loaded program would you recommend for an advanced level dementia resident with high anxiety?
