#22: Jacob Strachotta – How to Use Hypnotherapy to Increase Performance or Overcome Stress, Sleep Issues, Traumas, and Other Challenges

Jacob Strachotta, is the Founder & CEO of HelloMind and Founder of The Institute for Advanced Hypnosis in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Jacob Strachotta has worked with hypnosis and hypnotherapy for more than 25 years. He originally trained as a captain in the Danish Air Force.

In 2000, he founded The Institute for Advanced Hypnosis in Copenhagen, Denmark. Over the years, he has trained more than 650 hypnotists and hypnotherapists. Advanced Hypnosis differs from traditional hypnosis in that it goes straight to the root of the problem, isolating it and then treating it. It is a version of this technique called RDH – Result Driven Hypnosis, that is featured in the HelloMind app.

In this episode, you will learn a lot about what hypnotherapy is and how it can benefit you. He will walk us through what happens into the process of hypnosis and what role the hypnotherapist play during the hypnosis, debunking false beliefs about it. And also learn how meditation and hypnosis are in some manner the same and at the same time very different.

 

 

“Meditation is good as well, but Hypnotherapy is better.” 

– Jacob Strachotta

#21: Sofia Popov – Concrete Steps to Optimize Your Health Through Microbiome Research and Home Test

Poop test also called gut microbiome test seems to be the new black in health optimization From discovering what to eat, helping with IBS and so many other things. I, therefore, took a talk with Sofia Popov who is a microbiome scientist. She is also the founder of GUTXY which is a company that helps people figure out how to incorporate the latest scientific findings on the microbiome into their daily lives. In this podcast, we go through some of the latest research, how to use it, my experience with microbiome test and how a startup like Zemedy also focus on the microbiome for IBS.

“Gut is the pivot – the start of everything. And if you look at it more holistically, it is very central. If you are not digesting properly, other areas of your body aren’t functioning equally as well. It is key for everything.”

-Sofia Popov
