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!

Ask Dr. Bunny. Opioid Addiction? Part 3.

Join Dr. Bunny Vreeland as she continues her new series of shows dedicated to the opioid addiction epidemic.

Our guest today (who has asked to remain anonymous), shares her story of how her doctor prescribed opioids for pain for a variety medical conditions.  Due to the fact that she knew the possibility for addiction, she tried using over-the-counter Naproxen, only to find that it led to creating a heart murmur!

Tune in as our guest shares her story of the wild ups and downs she’s incurred with many doctors, how opioids have affected her life, and how she has chosen not to take them.

You’ll also learn more about this growing epidemic, how to recognize the signs of someone who’s become addicted, and how you can get help if you, or a loved one, is addicted to opioids.

Many people think that an opioid addiction is something a ‘typical’ drug addict has, and that opioids are an illegal substance. Both of those assumptions could not be further from the truth.

Opioid addiction spans every generation, every walk of life, and affects people who have never been addicted to anything else. The stories are many and varied, and you will be stunned at the people who have unknowingly become addicted to something that was given to them by their doctor.

Ask Dr. Bunny. Opioid Addiction? Part 2

Join Dr. Bunny Vreeland as she continues her new series of shows dedicated to the opioid addiction epidemic.  In today’s show, Dr. Bunny talks with someone (who has asked to remain anonymous), that has been touched by opioid addiction.

Unbeknownst to our guest, her former husband secretly became addicted to opioids while they were married.  She shares the devastating story of how it ruined their marriage, deeply affected her and their son, and the painful process of fighting a custody battle with a man addicted to drugs.  One astonishing fact is that the court apparently did not see this drug use as problematic since the drugs were prescribed by a doctor!

Tune in and learn more about this growing epidemic, how to recognize the signs of someone who’s become addicted, and how you can get help if you, or a loved one, is addicted to opioids.

Ask Dr. Bunny. Opioid Addiction? Part 1

Join Dr. Bunny Vreeland as she launches a new series of shows dedicated to the opioid addiction epidemic.

Many people think that an opioid addiction is something a ‘typical’ drug addict has, and that opioids are an illegal substance. Both of those assumptions could not be further from the truth.

Today Dr. Bunny shares a story from a very dear friend, Garth Gilmartin. Garth couldn’t join her in-studio due to the arrival of a beautiful new baby into his family, but he wrote his story for her to share, because he wants people to know the importance of this issue – and that it can happen to anyone.

In 2004, Garth went to a doctor for back pain. The doctor suggested Garth see a specialist, and it was determined, after an MRI, that Garth has spinal stenosis (a narrowing of the spinal canal, which can put pressure on the nerves that travel thru the spine).

The specialist put Garth on a pain management regime, where he would take narcotics (Vicodin) 3 times a day. The pain did decrease, but little did Garth know that he was becoming addicted to a drug that would change his life forever.

Tune in and hear Garth’s harrowing story of addiction, withdrawal, and his painful uphill climb to recovery. Garth has been addiction-free for 11 years now, and he is a huge advocate for helping others to make the same decision that he made.

This is a story you need to hear!
