Well, the holidays are over with all the parties and special treats. I hope your holidays were wonderful and (at least reasonably) healthy! We’re starting a New Year in many ways. Not just 2009 but with a new, very different, president and new challenges both as a nation and individually.

This is traditionally a time to reflect and take stock of our lives. What serves us? What doesn’t? What do we want to accomplish in the coming year? What do we want to accomplish in our lives? What aspects of our lifestyle brings us closer to those goals and which get in the way?

So we make resolutions at the beginning of a new year. Maybe we decide that this is the year we lose weight, take up an exercise program, learn a new skill, get a new job, improve our relationships or release a habit that no longer serves us as we progress toward our life goals. Whatever you resolve to change or accomplish in the coming year, I want you to know that my staff and I are here to help you meet your goals.

One of the powerful tools we have available is the Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET). Using NET we can work together to find out if there are any old, buried (or unburied) emotional associations that may be sabotaging your conscious desire to make change in your life. We can then zero in on the past incident that you’re unconsciously reacting to and defuse it so that, although the memory is still there, the emotional reaction that has been blocking your progress is cleared thus helping the desired change to occur.

I know many of you have experienced the life-changing effects of NET just as I have. Whether you want to change your diet or exercise program, find your perfect job or life partner, break an old habit or start a new, positive one, NET can often be key to smoothing the way. Sure we can accomplish things in spite of these old emotional stresses and blocks but it’s like driving with the parking brake on! I’d love to help you get out of your own way and help release your full, wonderful potential.

For more information on NET please ask me or my staff or check out the NET website

Another great tool I use for changing habits is auriculotherapy (ear acupuncture). This technique is especially effective for addictions. Addictions don’t have to be just to the obvious things like drugs, alcohol and tobacco. Other common addictions include food and work and gambling. Auriculotherapy along with NET and specific nutritional therapy are extremely effective in helping people who want to break an addictive habit. In fact auriculotherapy is so effective that it’s part of the drug rehabilitation program for drug-related crime prevention in Florida, New York, Nevada and Israel.

As we begin this New year together, I’m excited about working with you to make the changes you want in your life, your family, your community and the world! Each one of us, as we become truly healthy on all levels are freed to make contributions only we can give, which affects everyone around us.

Our office motto is “We change the World by optimizing health”. YOU change the world by being all you truly are!
