Fight Insomnia with Tart
They’re among the richest
food sources of melatonin, the same sleep-inducing
hormone that is produced by the pineal gland in the brain. The body’s
production of melatonin declines with age, which is part of the reason that
older adults often have trouble sleeping. A study in the Journal
of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism found that small doses of
melatonin—about 0.3 milligrams (mg)—helped people get a better night’s sleep.
One cup of tart cherry juice or about 1/8 of a cup of dried tart cherries
contains roughly the same amount. Sweet cherries also contain melatonin but not
as much. What
to do: eat tart
cherries or drink one cup of juice about an hour before bedtime. The juice is
very tart—you might want to mix in a little apple or pineapple juice. (Bottom Line Publications)
Kiss to Lower Stress: When couples kiss, it sets off a multitude of
chemical reactions including reduction levels of the stress hormone
cortisol. Holding hands while talking is
also effective in lowering stress and, of course, staying connected with one
another. (Wendy L. Hill, PhD, Professor of Neuroscience, Lafayette College, PA)
are Two Acupressure Points to Relieve Insomnia:
and the Inner Gate. Placing pressure on these
points helps balance and calm the heart, alleviate anxiety, and promote sound
sleep. Both are located on the inner wrist, so you can easily reach them
yourself. The Inner Gate can be found in the middle of the inner side of the
forearm, two and one-half finger widths from the wrist crease. The Spirit Gate
is located on the inside of the wrist crease, in line with the little finger. (Susan

I am currently a student at MIOH. I must say that this program is truly amazing! What started out as a desire to learn hypnotherapy to use as a profession is now that and so much more to me. The evolution that I'm personally experiencing from the MIOH courses in hypnotherapy, NLP, and Energy Psychology is such a confirmation of how powerful this work really is when presented properly.
Marla Brucker, the director, is knowledgeable, experienced, and interesting. The curriculum is fascinating, easy to follow, and truly applicable. Much of the class is experiential and interactive, which is such a powerful and effective way to learn. In addition to Marla, the program is taught by a number of other interesting and knowledgeable instructors...each contributing their unique experiences and perspectives. I love what I am learning and how the information is being presented.
I did a lot of research before deciding to enroll at MIOH. One aspect of the certification program that I think is SO important is the internship program. I could not find any other programs in the San Diego area that offer internships to support students transitioning into a career in hypnotherapy. I was intrigued by the fact that MIOH's hypnotherapy certification program incorporates NLP and Energy Psychology. These modalities work so well together to bring about positive change. I now have a variety of effective tools that I can use to guide my clients toward the transformation they desire.
I highly recommend Marla and her school to anyone looking to start a career in hypnotherapy and/or those wishing to grow and expand.

Letter from the Executive Director
…How many of you still hold on to
things from your past?
…When is it time to let go?
There’s this story about two
monks on a pilgrimage that came to a river bank they had to cross. As the monks were ready to tread through the
water, they noticed a young woman dressed in her finery. They observed her hesitating, not wanting to
get her clothes wet. Without a second
thought, the leader of the two monks lifted the woman and carried her on his
back to the other side of the river where he put her down, and the two monks
proceeded along their way.
After an hour of walking in
silence, the other monk was feeling uneasy with what his fellow monk did and began
to express his concerns. He started complaining “You know it’s against our commandments to touch a woman--let alone
carry a woman. How could you have done
that, and doesn’t it bother you?”
The monk who carried the woman
continued to walk without saying a word until he responded, “I set her down by the river an hour ago. Why
are YOU still carrying her?”
Too often we hold on to emotions that are brewing inside of us or we
aren’t able to let go of our past, bringing it into our future.
Your thoughts when combined with your feelings create your world. It’s important to be happy with where you are
today, which will help you create a better tomorrow. And if you’re not happy, change it!
Whatever you think about and have strong feelings about will manifest in
your life experience. Enjoy the process.
Have a wonderful Fourth of July.
To Your Success,
Marla Brucker, DCH, R.HA
