How Self-Hypnosis can Help Golfers Improve Their Game and Get in the Zone

How Self-Hypnosis can Help Golfers Improve Their Game and Get in the Zone










Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) July 12, 2006

In 2002, GOLF Magazine reviewed 5 hypnosis CDs for golfers. “Own The Zone,” created by Clinical Hypnotherapist Jennifer Scott, received the highest rating. As a result, she was interviewed by Kelly Tilghman on The Golf Channel. Then Jennifer was asked to write articles on golf’s “mental game” by GOLF Magazine’s online website, Golfonline. Also online, she is a featured writer for The Aspiring Golfer. She also writes on golf for regional golf magazines like GOLF JOURNEYS in cooperation with the Philadelphia section of the PGA.

In the Spring of 2005, Jennifer’s chapter “The Case for Hypnosis” was published in the landmark book “The Secret of Golf.” Compiled by George Peper, 25-year editor of GOLF Magazine, it is an anthology of golf’s most significant instructional ideas over the past 100 years. Some of those other innovators included are Ben Hogan, Tommy Armour and Dave Pelz.

A member of the National Speakers Association, Jennifer has been giving educational seminars at golf resorts coast to coast as well as at the San Diego Golf Academy. In addition, she has appeared on numerous radio and TV shows.

Because she is a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Jennifer can help golfers uncover and resolve hidden Subconscious issues which interfere with their performance — particularly if they have the dreaded swing problem called “The Yips.” Very often these uncontrollable flinches cannot be resolved by more traditional professional coaching. For this and many other reasons, golfers from all over the country fly in to see her in Scottsdale, AZ.

Jennifer has been Certified as a Clinical Hypnotherapist by the Atwood Institute for Research and Education, is a Registered Hypnotherapist with the American Board of Hypnotherapy, a Certified Stress Management Consultant with the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners and a Certified Medical Hypnotherapist with the Institute of Medical Hypnosis. She received her BA at Ottawa University.

Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum Establishes Statewide Network to Improve Patient Care

Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum Establishes Statewide Network to Improve Patient Care











Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum


Baton Rouge, LA (PRWEB) August 10, 2011

The Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum is on the fast track to develop the Louisiana Health Information Exchange (LaHIE), which will give providers access to health records and connect existing sources of patient data within the state. To accomplish this, the Quality Forum has selected Orion Health as its primary technology provider.

“This important decision has been reached due to the efforts of many dedicated Quality Forum stakeholders that include providers, payers, employers and consumers across the state. Their expertise in reviewing and assessing technology solutions from many vendors was invaluable. The states of Maine and Alaska, as well as multiple different regional and provider exchanges, rely on Orion Health to deliver their performance objectives. We are excited to soon offer health care providers in Louisiana a powerful, secure and comprehensive exchange solution,” commented Cindy Munn, the Quality Forum’s Executive Director.

According to Munn, the initial focus of the project will be to develop secure point-to-point messaging to help providers access critical health information and to achieve Meaningful Use quickly.

Additional benefits of LaHIE are designed to improve timely access to patient information, improve patient safety, increase security of records, increase consumer engagement, more adequately measure and improve public health benchmarks and reduce health care costs.

“LaHIE is another critical step in our ambitious agenda to improve health care services in our state and the health of our residents,” said DHH Secretary Bruce D. Greenstein. “While DHH has been working closely with health care providers to enhance the use of electronic health records, bringing this additional information technology into our health care marketplace will make the current technology use more meaningful and make our state more efficient. Louisianians deserve the highest level of patient safety and enhanced access to care when and where they need it. I am grateful for the hard work and dedication of our providers, stakeholders and leadership of the Quality Forum as we continue working in partnership on efforts that improve the health and lives of our state’s residents.”

Quality Forum President Karen DeSalvo, MD, reiterated that the selection of Orion Health’s technology platform for LaHIE is a crucial step forward for improving patient care in Louisiana. “The Forum is also in a unique position to assist physicians who want to join the network. Our experiences with creating LaHIE and managing the Louisiana Health Information Technology (LHIT) Resource Center have provided us with an informed perspective on what help health care workers need to get up to speed quickly with technology,” she added.

The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) approved the Louisiana Health Care Quality Forum’s strategic and operational plan for LaHIE earlier this year. The Quality Forum is a private, not-for-profit organization that serves as the State-Designated Entity to plan and implement LaHIE, to oversee the state’s regional extension center and to lead initiatives designed to improve health care quality for Louisiana residents.

Americans Look To Food To Improve Health 2011 IFIC Functional Foods Survey Looks at Awareness & Consumption of Food For Health Benefits

Americans Look To Food To Improve Health
2011 IFIC Functional Foods Survey Looks at Awareness & Consumption of Food For Health Benefits












Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 04, 2011

Maintaining health and reducing risk of disease is at the forefront of many consumers’ minds as they age. New research from the International Food Information Council shows that Americans cite cardiovascular disease (46 percent), weight (32 percent) and cancer (22 percent) as their top health concerns. Along with these issues that can affect us as we age, almost one in five Americans (19 percent) cite healthy aging as a top health concern.

The 2011 IFIC Functional Foods/Foods for Health Survey, also shows that people often look to food for its health benefits. Ninety percent of Americans can name at least one food and its associated benefit and 76 percent say that functional foods, or foods that can promote health, can have a meaningful impact on their health when they consume them.

The foods and food components Americans look to the most to help improve or maintain their health are:

1)    Fruits and Vegetables

2)    Fish/Fish Oil

3)    Dairy

4)    Whole Grains

5)    Herbs & Spices

“Americans have made it clear that they want to take advantage of the health benefits of food,” according to Elizabeth Rahavi, RD, associate director of Health and Wellness at the International Food Information Council. “But it’s not just fruits and vegetables that can have a positive impact on our health. There are lots of healthful components like antioxidants, fiber, whole grains, and soy found in a variety of foods and beverages that can make a difference in our health as we age.”

The top components with benefits mentioned in the survey include calcium (92 percent) and vitamin D (90 Percent) for bone health, protein (87 percent) and B vitamins (86 percent) for overall well-being, omega-3 fatty acids (85%) for heart health, and probiotics (81 percent) and fiber (79 percent) for digestive health.

Still, Americans struggle to incorporate these key food components into their diets citing the top barriers as expense, taste and availability.

“Consuming foods for health benefits doesn’t have to be expensive,” according to Rahavi. “Just taking simple steps such as choosing a whole grain cereal, oatmeal, or yogurt for breakfast each day can go a long way to improve health over time.”

The 2011 IFIC Functional Foods/Foods for Health Survey randomly sampled 1000 U.S. adults and is the seventh version of the Survey dating back to 1998. Other topics in the Survey include attitudes toward health, awareness of 34 different diet and health relationships and top sources of nutrition and health information.

A copy of the 2011 IFIC Functional Foods/Foods for Health Survey Executive Summary is available at FoodInsight.org as is the International Food Information Council Foundation Foods for Health video series featuring expert tips for eating for a variety of health benefits including healthy aging, weight management, digestive health, immune health and heart health.

For interview requests and any other questions, please contact the IFIC media team at 202-296-6540, Mittenthal(at)ific(dot)org or Matthews(at)ific(dot)org.

The International Food Information Council’s (IFIC’s) mission is to effectively communicate science-based information on food safety and nutrition to health and nutrition professionals, educators, journalists, government officials and others providing information to consumers. IFIC is supported primarily by the broad-based food, beverage and agricultural industries. IFIC and IFIC Foundation materials can be found on our Web site: http://www.foodinsight.org.
