SNAP! Unhypnotizing Hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy stories and more! Teresa Crocker, guest.

Teresa Crocker joins Dr. Bunny today to discuss Hypnotherapy.  Teresa is a fellow Hypnotherapist and shares why she got involved in Hypnotherapy.  Recently, Teresa was able to see first-hand how amazingly beneficial Hypnotherapy can be, when her husband had a major surgery and did not need any pain meds – that was Hypnotherapy in action!

There’s also another first-hand story Teresa shares with us – why she had a major phobia of crickets & grasshoppers, and how she overcame that!  One Hypnotherapy session & it was gone (much to the amazement of her kids!).

Teresa and Dr. Bunny talk in depth about fears & phobias, and share stories about how quickly they’ve seen Hypnotherapy help people with a multitude of fears & phobias.  

Teresa and Dr. Bunny also discuss their new “Opioid-Free! Release Yourself From Addiction” project  that they’ve launched with Dr. Johannes Ramirez Boden, and share their goals of helping people trust Hypnotherapy more than they trust the pill bottle.  They both see Hypnotherapy as a very important tool in fighting the opioid addiction epidemic, and explain their reasons why.

A powerfully informative interview you don’t want to miss!

About Teresa Crocker:

Having been involved in the recovery business since 1988 I watched with growing concern as the use of opioids as an ‘automatic go-to’ for ANY type of pain became the norm. Personally, I have suffered lower back pain since my early 20’s when I had one too many car accidents and know first hand what chronic pain is. I became active in exploring alternative ways to manage my pain without the use of drugs. But I also became aware that it can be quite an expensive road that often yields to zero results.

Then I went to a hypnotist to stop smoking – and it was successful. I kept thinking: if this can help chronic (ab)users of substances as addictive as tobacco, why not pain meds? And, if it can re-direct the neurons in my brain that have an established pathway for years – to a NEW pathway that doesn’t include smoking, why not with other habitual thinking processes?

This seemed a perfect fit for me as, in running two successful Women’s Sober Living homes and being the chair for the Sober Living Coalition of Ventura County I am a voice for those already struggling with a drug problem.

I got certified in hypnotherapy and went on to study under well-established hypnotherapists such as Dr. Bunny Vreeland, Shelly Stockwell-Nicholas and Richard Nongard to name a few. I  got certified in Pain Management by Seth Deborah Roth, who is not only a CRNA but also the President of Hypnotherapy for Health and became a member of the International Hypnosis Federation.

It has been exciting and enriching for me to be a part of helping those who wish, to empower themselves with the skills necessary to set in motion a different path. A path of their own making. Because – it is never too late to be who you always wanted to be!

SNAP! Unhypnotizing Hypnotherapy. Opioids from a Physician’s perspective. Dr. Bob, guest.

In today’s show, Dr. Bunny is joined by her friend, Dr. Bob, a longtime physician, to discuss the opioid epidemic, changes in the medical profession, and so much more.  Dr. Bob shares valuable information and insight from his 50 years in the medical field, and tells us how advanced surgeries have become, and how opioid use and prescriptions have changed.

Dr. Bob believes the opioid crisis is the result of multiple factors, and everyone involved – the physicians, drug manufacturers, drug distributors, retailers, public health officials, law enforcement, and policy makers – need to come together to drive meaningful solutions forward.  Dr. Bob says he believes there is no single solution, it’s a partnership to move in the right direction.

According to a recent study, several million people have opioid overuse from opioids they bought on the street, not from a prescription given by a doctor.  This is something that has changed drastically from Dr. Bob’s early career.

These days it is common for a doctor to write a prescription for more pain medication than is actually needed, just in case the patient needs it (or for insurance reasons), however this has led to many people having excess pain meds (opioids) being stored in their medicine cabinets.  This can commonly lead to overuse, use by other family members, or even sales of the opioid to someone who does not need it, which causes a bigger issue.

Dr. Bob encourages everyone to learn more about safer use and storage of medications, and what to do with unused pills.

A very informative & interesting interview that you need to hear!
