Alcohol Help with Hypnotherapy
The aim of the therapy I offer is not necessarily to help my clients to stop drinking alcohol completely, but to help my clients have control over the amount they drink.
I aim for a transformation with my therapy so that my clients can drink when they want and how much they want to drink.
Alcohol is a social lubricant. It helps people relax and have fun. Alcohol is also harmful and is often the main factor in weight gain for many people.
Many people who drink too much just want an off switch so they can stop before it gets out of hand. Some people want to be able to relax at the end of the day without having to drink a glass or more of wine. Using the therapeutic tools that I have available to me I will taylor my hypnotherapy to meet your particular needs.
Alcohol and Cancer
The fact that alcohol is a cause of cancer has been under publicised and awareness of the effects of alcohol in this respect is extremely low in the UK. According to a survey carried out in 2018, only one in ten people in the UK were aware that alcohol could cause cancer.
According to Cancer Research UK alcohol has been found to be a cause for seven different types of cancer including Breast Cancer, Bowel Cancer, Mouth Cancer, cancer in the pharynx (upper throat), cancer in the larynx (voice box), cancer in the oesophagus and Liver Cancer.
Several recent studies, including those whose results were published in The Lancet Oncology show that the consumption of alcohol, even in moderate amounts, is a major cause of cancer worldwide. One recent study estimated that in 2020 741,300 new cases of cancer were attributable to alcohol. Of this number, 568,700 cases were male. Although the majority of these cases were represented by heavy and risky drinking, moderate drinking still contributed 103,100 cases and drinking up to ten grams per day contributed 41,300.
In the UK, alcohol is one of the main causes of some types of cancer. For example, according to the World Health Organisation 24% of Breast Cancer cases in the UK are attributable to alcohol along with 23% of Colon Cancer. The cancer risks of smoking are generally better understood than those of alcohol, with a survey showing that more than 70% of the general population understand the links between smoking and cancer. A 2019 study was published in the journal BMC Public Health comparing the cancer risks of both to each other. This study found that one bottle of wine is equivalent to five cigarettes for men and ten for women with regards to absolute cancer risk.
It is therefore particularly important that the general public are made aware of the health complications of alcohol regarding cancer, especially considering the increase in alcohol consumption since the start of the pandemic. This trend has led to the over-promotion of alcoholic beverages which has exacerbated the problem.
