Hypnosis for weight loss or weight control:
Whether you are overweight or underweight hypnotherapy can get you to your ideal and healthy weight. It does this by addressing the underlying reason for you being either too fat, or too thin. It delves into your subconscious mind. Most people who overeat fall into three categories,
a) comfort eaters. Those people who when things get them down, or they have an emotional upset of one sort or another turn to food to pacify, or reduce, even some believe eliminate, the low feeling that they are experiencing at that time.
b) unconscious eaters. Those who eat without realising it i.e. when watching TV. It is just a habit. They have convinced themselves that the two go together relaxing watching a film, or TV programme and food.
c) conditioned eaters. Those people who may have been either brought up in households where money was tight and food was in short supply, so now they can afford as much as they like they do just that. Or the opposite they were brought up in affluent households where food was plentiful and they were encouraged to eat as much as they liked (often being told of the crime of wasteing food in a world where two thirds go hungry).

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), a member of the retrovirus family which if not detected in early stages can completely paralyze your immune system thereby causing death. A condition most commonly referred to as Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). Once imbibed, such viruses cannot be completely eliminated from your system but an early detection can prevent further spreading and gift you with a longer life. In this technology driven era, there are numerous ways of detecting the HIV virus. This article gives you an insight to the various HIV tests which you can undertake.
But before you opt for an HIV test let me tell you that the viruses takes a minimum time of 2 to 12 weeks to show positive results. In some cases, it may take as long as 6 months to be suspected. So if an infected individual have taken a test before the completion of 6 months and is tested negative then their risk is still not over. To be doubly sure, they might need to undertake another test after the completion of the time period (6 months).
Where Do I Test For HIV?
You no longer have to deal with the embarrassment of undertaking an HIV test. Today, there are various HIV testing sites that give anonymous results. This means that, your name is never recorded in the test site. Such privacy is nowadays giving confidence to an increasing number of infected individuals to go for the test. Besides, the anonymous test sites also provide quality education and counseling, free and reliable testing services and prevents individuals from the hazards of discrimination. A recent report by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has however shown that the number of individuals in Taipei opting for the anonymous HIV test have gone up to 43 percent after the Chinese Valentine’s Day, the year before. This is a perfect example of how increasing number of people are getting conscious about having safe sex. (more…)
