Extracts: “…”The outcome (of this study) underlines that ageing is malleable,” Olde Rikkert ( Marcel Olde Rikkert, head of the Alzheimer’s centre at Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre in the Netherlands) says, adding that cognitive function can actually be a lot better than people would assume until a very high age…It’s motivating that people, their lifestyles, and their environments can contribute a lot to the way they age,” he says, though he cautions that not everything is in our own hands and help is still needed for those with dementia or those who do experience cognitive decline as they age.”
Interesting article highlighting a positive change in cognitive decline. The study suggests that “people, their lifestyles, and their environments can contribute a lot to the way they age”. Hypnotherapy can prepare and motivate us to perform those changes in our lifestyle which can be most beneficial for our cognitive abilities, as this article suggests, even through the pass of time. This may include habits such as healthier diets, exercise routines, aspects of our lives over which we may be able to exert more control than we are experiencing at present. We may not always be able to directly affect and/or change our environment. However we may be able to take a bit more control over the way we live our own lives. Hypnotherapy can contribute to making this process faster and easier. Only this little bit more of self control can make a difference. It can also give us a new perception over our own abilities for achieving change which may motivate future, greater desired changes.
