If you are suffering from midlife stress, be aware it is linked to dementia later on in your life. Hypnosis can help you deal with the stresses and help protect you from late-life dementia.
Lena Johansson, Phd, researcher at the University of Goethenburg, Moindal, Sweden, reported on a study of 800 women who were tracked for almost forty years. Researchers discovered that whose who had experienced significant stress, such as widowhood, loss of a child, divorce or mental illness in a loved one, were 21% more likely to develop Alzheimer's disease in late-life.
It is believed that stress may actually cause functional and even structural changes in the brain. These changes may last for many years after the stressful situation which triggered them.
Do all you can to relieve midlife stress including meditation, yoga, psychotherapy and hypnotherapy. Hypnosis can help you relax and deal with the stresses in your life.
