"Thank you so much for your wonderful recommendations. Life has been a pleasure! You help me reduce my joint pain and I look forward to exercising again.

"I really can’t believe how powerful hypnosis is. I accomplished more in 6 months then I have in 3 years of therapy. I have better self esteem, motivation, and I am now a more positive person. I used to be a worry wart and negative about everything in life. Dr. Robert your service is fantastic."

“I am so glad I consulted with you. The chemotherapy I was receiving was causing me to lose weight. Through your diet I was able to put the much needed weight back on and keep my immune system strong. Even when I had trouble getting food down you were able to work out a way for me to get my much needed calories. I still avoid those foods you told me would weaken my immune system and I feel you really helped me during my treatments.
- Mildred Harnack,
Lyndhurst, NJ


“I have nothing but great things to say about The Banish! Program. I am 53 and have smoked since I was a teenager. I have tried to quit countless times. Cold turkey, patches, gum, zyban, you name it I tried it. All except hypnosis. I'm not even sure how I found out about your site, but I decided to sign up. Right after the session I felt different. Very little cravings and no cheating. I have been smoke free now for 5 months. This is a huge accomplishment for me. I have never been able to go more then a week or two without backsliding and returning to smoking. I am so delighted that your program worked. I have told several people about it and will continue to spread the word if anyone is trying to quit.”
–Edward Robinson,
Pequannock, NJ


“You're a hit. We received a lot of positive feedback regarding your programs. Your really provide a great service to the community. Thank you for the all the hard work in making our programs a success. We look forward to working with you again.”

“Your were the third nutritionist I saw in 7 years. I never had anyone spend as much time and ask me as many questions as you did. You are very thorough in what you do. My acne cleared up, my energy came back and I feel bad saying this, because everyone wants to lose weight, but I gained the weight I needed.”
-Mary Lou, Maywood, NJ

“The migraines I have had during my PMS week are much improved. Your advice worked.”
-Patricia Glasser,

-Alexis Varner, NJ

“You really helped me advance my career by helping me overcome my fear of public speaking.”
-Brian B. Lawyer, NJ

“I had out of control blood sugar and couldn't stop my cravings for bad foods. Dr. Robert gave me a realistic diet I could follow along with a few supplements to help my body. Now my blood sugar is perfect and my food cravings are gone. I also lost some weight.”
-Sheila T, Nurse, NJ

“My cholesterol is down below 200. Thanks for your guidance."
-John Mason,

“My boyfriend went out and signed me up to see Dr. Robert, knowing how debilitating my depression had become. I was skeptical, because anything I’d ever tried in the past that promised relief never worked.

I was really surprised at what Dr. Robert told me. I had no idea the negative effects my habits were having. I couldn’t believe that in just one week I was feeling so much better!"
-Kathy Nates,
CityGardens, Long Island, NY


Recommended Alternative Therapy
Widely Available in New Jersey
- Biofeedback
 

Biofeedback defined

Biofeedback in complementary and alternative medicine is a technique for training you to gain conscious control over various body functions like heart rate for example. It works by connecting you to electrical sensors that allow you to see information (feedback) about your body's living (bio) functions as they're happening.

Then the biofeedback practitioner, using the sensors, teaches you how to make subtle changes, like relaxing muscle groups, that will produce desired results like stress or pain relief. There are numerous health centers in New Jersey where you can learn biofeedback with the help of experienced therapists.

Reasons for using biofeedback

Biofeedback (or biofeedback training, as it's sometimes known) is a good treatment approach for a variety of physical and mental issues.

These can include:

  • Asthma
  • Stress or anxiety
  • Side effects of chemotherapy
  • Constipation
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart problems
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Incontinence
  • Improving physical performance
  • Pain
  • Raynaud's disease

People may prefer biofeedback training to more conventional therapies because:

  • It's a non-invasive method
     
  • Medications may be reduced or discontinued
     
  • It's a good alternative for those who are intolerant of drugs prescribed for their ailments
     
  • It may help patients who haven't had good results from conventional medication
     
  • It can be an option for pregnant women when drugs are not advisable
     
  • It puts the person in control of their therapy and their health
     

What happens in biofeedback training?

First, investigate biofeedback training centers in your part of New Jersey and find the one that suits your situation.

When you go to a biofeedback session, your therapist will place painless electrical sensors on various parts of your body, such as your fingertip, your scalp, etc. The sensors track the ongoing physiological status of changing body functions, such as muscle tension and brain waves, and tell you about the changes with signals like a flashing light or beeping sound. By paying attention to the signals, you learn how to alter or control your bodily reactions by changing your thoughs, your emotional state, or your behavior. This ability will help you improve your physical/mental problem.

A good example is tension headaches. With biofeedback you can identify the muscles that are being tightened, consciously or unconsciously, and causing the headaches. Then you'll learn to relax those muscles to lessen or stop the pain. The goal is to lay down these skills firmly so you can use them yourself whenever you need them.

Generally, a biofeedback appointment will be 45-60 minutes long. How long they are and how many sessions you have will vary according to your condition, and the length of time you need to learn how to control your body's responses. Training might take as few as 4 sessions or as many as 10.

There are quite a number of biofeedback methods, and your therapist will choose the ones best suited to your situation and health issues.

Some of the techniques are:

  • Electromyography (EMG) provides feedback on muscle tension.
     
  • Temperature (thermal) biofeedback. Sensors on the fingers or feet show skin temperature.
     
  • Dropping body temperature often indicates stress, making this a good, simple sign to begin a relaxation exercise.
     
  • Heart rate variation feedback teaches you to control your heart rate, which can help with lung function, hypertension, and anxiety.
     
  • Galvanic skin response feedback. This method measures sweat gland activity and the moisture level on the skin surface. Increased sweating is another excellent cue that you're becoming anxious and should begin purposeful relaxation. 

Equipment used in biofeedback

In New Jersey you will find that biofeedback training is offered at private practices, medical centers, physical therapy centers, and hospitals. In addition, many kinds of biofeedback equipment are being made for use at home, including those that connect to home computers, and portable handheld types.

You should keep in mind that not all products put on the market as biofeedback technology are genuine, and not everyone advertising biofeedback therapy is qualified. Research, and ask for a Practitioner's credentials.

If a biofeedback device is advertised as being able to diagnose disease, cure your condition, detect blood impurities, or send signals to your body, discuss it with your doctor before buying or using, to avoid being taken in by false claims.
