Have you begun to notice some of the signs of aging? Perhaps you're seeing new wrinkles when you look in the mirror.  Or perhaps you are feeling the aches and pains of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.  You may have even felt like the tin man in THE WIZARD OF OZ:  you are beginning to rust.  That rusting is caused by oxidative stress.  This stress happens when free radicals, the excess of high-energy oxygen molecules in cells, damage a cell's tissue and structure.

     Poor lifestyle habits are the main triggers of oxidative stress.  They include:  overeating, consumption of alcohol, smoking, and prescription drugs.   By making changes in lifestyle like modifying your diet, lessening or stopping alcohol consumption and stopping smoking, it may even be possible to no longer need the prescription drugs.  

     If you want to stop rusting, it's time to make those changes.  Hypnotherapy can be a valuable tool in slowing the aging process caused by oxidative stress.
