New research suggests that even light smoking increases the chance of arthritis in women.


Hypnotherapy can strengthen the motivation that those who want to quit already have and works with them to fight temptation

According to National Health Service news, light smoking can double the risk of arthritis in women. The study, carried out by Swedish researchers found that women who only smoke a small number of cigarettes a day significantly increase their risk of developing the condition. The figures were taken from over 30,000 women over a seven year period and found that the risk increased even at relatively low levels of smoking.

The news brings more information about the disease and conditions associated with smoking and is likely to encourage some smokers to try and quit for good.

The National Council for Hypnotherapy’s members has helped hundreds of thousands of smokers quit by using hypnotheraputic techniques aimed at reinforcing the desire to quit as a representative explained, "Hypnotherapy can strengthen the motivation that those who want to quit already have and works with them to fight temptation, change their habits and deal with trigger situations that make them want to light up."

As one of the UK’s most established hypnotherapy directories, the NCH provides information on hypnotherapists throughout the British Isles listing details such as contact number, area and specialties, helping clients contact them and book appointments with ease.
