 ==== ====Learn How to Reverse your Diabeteshttp://tinyurl.com/mydiabetescure ==== ====Discussed in this article: 1) The Quiet Crisis Within Diabetes. 2) A Hidden Danger of Diabetes. 3) Are Physicians Aware Of This Danger? 4) Does Depression Cause Diabetes? 5) The Formation of Depression Post-Hypnotic Suggestions. 6) Summary 5) Next Issue Highlights. The Quiet Crisis Within Diabetes Depression is a 'quiet crisis' facing diabetics, their families and their health care providers.Financially and emotionally this crisis is exacting a terrible cost. The purpose of this and following articles is to share important information about depression andhow a hypnotist can responsibly and effectively help a diabetic with depression. This assistancewill help to improve a diabetic's life by (a) reducing the suffering from this painful state of mind andbeing and (b) thus enhance their diabetes management skills which will therefore result in a stateof enhanced health. Bear in mind the importance of your contribution as a hypnotist. You can make an incredibledifference because even a small reduction in a diabetic's long term blood sugar levels can result ina marked decrease in the likelihood of diabetic complications. A Hidden Danger of Diabetes A largely unknown hence, hidden danger of diabetes is that diabetics have twice the risk of non-diabetics for becoming depressed. Dr. Richard Surwit of Duke University states that: "Diabetesmore than doubles the odds of suffering from depression at some point. One third of people withdiabetes have been diagnosed with significant depression and 11 percent with major depression--twice the rate in the non-diabetic population (1)." 
What is obvious and yet, not really obvious about the preceding statement is that being diagnosedwith a major disease is traumatic. This, in and of itself, can lead to depression--never mind all theother contributing factors that are related to diabetes and depression. For example, a contributing factor to depression in a diabetic can be their physiological state. Asnoted by Dr. Surwit, there is research indicating that high blood sugars cause biochemicalchanges in the brain that can lead to depression. (2) Are Physician's Aware Of This Danger? Physicians by and large, are extremely busy and the demands on them are greater than most canimagine. It is no wonder that many of them are simply not aware that their diabetic clients are twotimes more likely to suffer from depression. If they knew this, they would probably be more likelyto refer their diabetic clients with poor blood sugar control to someone who could help. When appropriate, a hypnotist can help in key ways because a hypnotist is trained to be amotivational coach and stress management consultant. One way a trained hypnotist can help adepressed person with diabetes will be explained later in this article. But first, let's look at animportant question. Does Depression Cause Diabetes? This is an important question for many reasons. Probably one of the more compelling reasons todeeply consider this idea is because, if true to some degree, then it begs this question: Wouldn'tthe validity of this concept make the majority of treatment efforts inappropriate and/or ineffective tosome degree? Consider the plight of many frustrated nurses and doctors who will attest that nomatter what they do for their patients, nothing seems to work. This statement is not meant to denigrate in any way the efforts of so many. It is meant to highlightthe importance of timely consideration of the depression-diabetes connection before the cost forall concerned becomes not only debilitating, but also tragically unnecessary. Consider this: Evidence, that will be discussed shortly, shows there is a strong connectionbetween depression and diabetes. This is important because, unless diabetes treatmentprograms are sculpted to target a largely unaddressed cause and exacerbating feature ofdiabetes, many of those at risk will only become worse. Those at risk include person's with pre-diabetes as well as those with diabetes. This pragmatic approach also prompts one to think about the idea that perhaps with re-targetedtreatment methods, many of those with diabetes may actually experience a remission ofsymptoms. And, dwell on the idea of how many may be able to avoid developing diabetes. Bear with me a moment while I explain. Untreated depression in those with diabetes is a personaltragedy for all family members but most especially children. I state this because children have nocoping skills to handle the emotional burden of a depressed and diabetic parent. Imagine being a child helplessly watching your mother (as in my case) being slowly, inexorably,taken apart emotionally and physically by the deadly combination of poorly controlled diabetes and
untreated depression. It is because of this searing pain that I am driven to reach whomever I can with my DiabetesMotivational Coaching TM training so that perhaps some little boy somewhere doesn't have towatch his mother go blind emotionally and physically. I realize this may sound disingenuous or dramatic to some and I understand but I make noapologies because it is true. In fact, my feelings go far deeper than what I have communicatedhere. You see, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree and now that hypnosis has helped me to putmy life on a previously undreamed of healthy course, my motivation is intensified because I thinkso many times: "What if my mother had been able to have access to these methods? How muchbetter would her life be now?" Now, to tie all this in to my point that perhaps an innovative approach can actually preventdiabetes: The challenge with current diabetic treatments is that no amount of chemicalmanagement (including anti-depressants as well as insulin, etc.) will ever ameliorate thissignificant cause of diabetes. (Depression) This is because these treatments do not address theroot of the problem. Furthermore, no amount of medication given to one individual will everprevent another from developing diabetes. The last point seems odd until you consider a landmark Swedish study (3) in which it wasdiscovered that there is a disturbingly high correlation between traumatic childhood life events (4)and diabetes-related auto-immune activity. This study involved 17,000 children born between1997 and 1999. One of many conclusions in this study is that: "Experiences of serious life events(e.g., parental separation, serious illness, or death in the family) has been suggested to triggertype 1 diabetes(5) or the auto-immune process behind the disease.(6)" An additional interesting point to take away from the preceding considerations is that currenttreatment programs treat one person. Limited efficacy and high cost. However, if a patient wereto receive Diabetes Motivational Coaching TM then more than one person can receive thepositive benefits because a healthier, non-depressed diabetic parent is less likely to have aprecipitating influence on their child. Two for the price of one. A win-win situation from so manyangles. Obviously more study is required but the premise is intriguing and the evidence it is basedon is reasonably sound. Another win-win benefit of appropriate, innovative treatment is that the exacerbating (andultimately very costly) effects of depression on those with diabetes can likely be reduced oreliminated. So, what can a properly trained hypnotist do? One key way a properly trained hypnotist can helpis to reduce or eliminate depression in an individual (diabetic or not) by helping them to eliminatedepression activating post-hypnotic suggestions. The Formation of Depression Activating Post-Hypnotic SuggestionsA post-hypnotic response is a cause-effect belief program that powerfully dictates behavior.Another way to look at this is that when a specific stimulus becomes uniquely associated with astrong internal state, you have a post-hypnotic suggestion and effect.
