World-Renowned Hypnotherapy School Moves to Albuquerque


or near- ly two decades, the world- renowned Hypno- therapy Academy of America was located in Santa Fe. In January the Academy moved to Albu- querque. People have traveled from 23 countries and 48 states to train with Tim and Angela Simmerman Sierra, direc- tors of the Academy. “To study hypnotherapy is to un-

derstand the very nature of human mir- acles,” says Angela. And proof of that is Angela’s eyesight. In 1998 she was involved in a near fatal car accident. Blinded and unconscious she was taken to the hospital, and soon transported to a home hospice. After nearly a month, her family took her back to the hospital where they encountered a neurosur- geon who chose to use hypnosis and healing imagery instead of conven- tional medicine. A few months later she regained her eyesight. Now she teaches those methods at the Academy. Tim has masterfully synthesized

the work of America’s two great hypno- therapy pioneers, Dave Elman and Gil Boyne, to form a complete hypnother- apy system. Their inspired and intuitive approach has been organized into a step-by-step format so that new students can reliably facilitate the same quality of client healing. The Hypnotherapy Academy is

licensed by the New Mexico Higher Edu- cation Department as a vocational school providing career training in hypnotherapy. The Academy also holds approvals from the Veterans Administration, the Depart- ment of Labor, as well as the International Board of Hypnotherapy.

YOUR SKIN HEALTH QUESTIONS ANSWERED submitted by Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy

Dr. Tieraona Low Dog, MD, a member of Pharmaca’s Integrative Health Ad- visory Board, offered up these helpful answers to common skin questions.

What can I do to minimize wrinkles? The two most important things: Avoid excessive sun exposure and don’t smoke. Next, hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. A pure, clean moisturizer is your very best friend when it comes to reducing the appearance of wrinkles. As far as nutrition, make sure you’re getting omega-3 fatty acids in your diet,

either by eating cold-water oily fish or taking 1,000 mg of fish oil (EPA/DHA) every day. And a diet rich in vegetables and fruits will provide you with all the antioxi- dants you need for healthy skin. Retinol, a natural form of vitamin A, is available in many over-the-counter products and can be highly effective at increasing the skin’s capacity to hold water. Alpha hydroxy acids are natural fruit acids that remove the top layer of dead skin cells, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and stimulating the pro- duction of collagen. Topical vitamin C may also be helpful.

What are the most important things I can do to maintain youthful-looking skin? In addition to the above recommendations, make sure you use a gentle cleanser and moisturizer every day. Look for a moisturizer that meets the needs of your skin (e.g. dry, sensitive). In addition, a gentle exfoliant once a week can remove older skin cells and brighten/freshen the appearance. It’s also critical to focus on your diet if you want to look beautiful both inside

and out. There is very strong evidence that all the sugar in our diet contributes to the formation of advanced glycation end-products (AGEs), which bind and damage the collagen and elastin in skin. This is what makes the skin sag, lose tone and take on a lackluster hue. You can see early signs of this process when you look at the skin of a 45-year-old who’s smoked for 25 years. If you want your skin to remain healthy and youthful in appearance, I recommend a

low-glycemic load diet. The New Glucose Revolution by Jennie Brand-Miller is an excel- lent way to learn how to change your diet to reduce your risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and even certain cancers. This dietary pattern will also keep your skin radiant!
