"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.”
-Michele DiLoreto,

“Since I started working with Dr. Robert I haven't had a flare up of my ulcerative colitis.”
-Samantha Bakers

“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,

“I met Dr. Robert at a health fair a year ago. We spoke for a while and I knew I had to consult with him in regards to my daughters asthma. Since working with him she has needed less of her medication and her asthma is much more manageable.”
-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


These 15 Tips Will Help You Stop Smoking:
Advice from a New Jersey Expert.

1. First, go through this list of tips from one of New Jersey's leading experts on how to stop smoking. Then get paper and pencil, and make your own list. You know best what will work for your personality and lifestyle, so you're the best one to outline your plan.

2. Write down a definite statement about why you want to stop smoking, and the good things you want to gain by stopping: longer life, better health, family benefits, money saved, etc. You already know what the benefits are. Write it down, re-read it every day.

3. Get the support of family and friends with your smoking cessation program. You want them not to judge you but to understand what stopping will mean: warn them that you'll likely be having withdrawal symptoms like irritability, maybe even irrationality at times.

4. Discuss your plan to stop smoking with your doctor. Studies show that your physician's help and advice will increase your chances of permanent success.

5. Set a date for stopping smoking forever. Mark it large on all your calendars, plan to make it a special day, the first day of the rest of your life.. A small ritual to set apart the moment when you smoke your Last Cigarette, maybe on the morning of your Quit Date -- is an excellent idea.

6. Commit to a good exercise program. Exercise and smoking are like oil and water: they don't mix. Exercise is a great stress reducer and an excellent way to start repairing your body now that you're no longer harming it with tobacco.

There are many excellent parks, running and bike trails, and other free exercise venues in New Jersey. If you want, start slow by taking a short walk once or twice daily, and increase your time gradually to 30-40 minutes of more vigorous exercise, 3 or 4 times weekly. As with any new exercise program, you should check first with your doctor.

7. Deep breathing exercises daily for 3-5 minutes are extremely beneficial for those who stop smoking. Inhale very slowly through the nose, hold for several seconds, then release the breath slowly through the mouth. Do this with closed eyes, and then go on to Step 8.

8. Practice visualizing yourself as a non-smoker. As you perform your minutes of deep breathing, close your eyes and imagine how it will be: how enjoyable exercise will become, how good you'll feel when you can easily say no thanks when someone offers you a smoke.

Get creative see yourself throwing away all your cigarettes, and getting a gold medal like an Olympic champ! Make a movie in your head out of the drama of stopping smoking: creative visualization really works.

9. You may succeed best if you quit gradually, if you take this route, make sure you've got a firm Quit Date set to progress toward. There are lots of gradual strategies: plan exactly how many smokes you'll permit yourself each day between now and the Quit Date, the number diminishing daily.

Buy only one pack of cigarettes at a time. Get a different brand each time instead of your preferred kind, so you don't get as much pleasure from smoking. Hand your cigarettes over to another person, so that you'll have to ask for a smoke every time.

10. Or, stop the cold turkey way. This is, for many is the only sure way to stop smoking for good. Try one way, and if it doesn't work for you, do it the other way.

11. Partner with another person who wants to stop smoking, and support each other when the going gets tough. There are internet groups that New Jersey residents can use to find a quit buddy.

12. When you're tobacco-free, mark the milestones with special celebrations. You're two weeks clean, go to a movie. A month have dinner out at a good restaurant (non-smoking section, needless to say). Three months along, take a long weekend and visit a vacation spot you like. After six months, get yourself a gift, something purely for fun and pleasure. When you've stopped smoking for a whole year, make it a real personal holiday with a party, and invite your nearest and dearest to celebrate your triumph and the healthier life you've embarked on.

13. Form the habit of drinking water, lots of it. Most people, both smokers and non-smokers, don't drink enough. When you're in the process of stopping smoking and while your body is recovering, water helps flush the nicotine and other toxins out of your system. Also, the act of drinking can help satisfy the oral cravings that are a part of the smoking habit for many.

14. Every smoker habitually responds to certain triggers that make him or her want to smoke. Listen to yourself, observe yourself, and learn what triggers smoking: stress, arriving at work, finishing a meal, social tension, etc. And stay conscious of them, and avoid them if you can; if you can't, figure out other ways to respond to them.

15. When you're stopping smoking, the moments will come when the craving strikes. Don't let it win. Instead, write down what your feelings and thoughts are at that moment, in a stop smoking journal that you can keep with you wherever you are.
