But today it is being used medically more and more in the treatment of many conditions. There are actually physicians who are just spe- idolizing in the use of hypnosis. It proven effective in such situations as stopping thumb- sucking, nail-biting, and excessive drinking. And, recently it was proved to be a valuable aid in treating musculo-skeletal disorders such as bursltis. Hypnosis for medical conditions should al- ways be in the hands of trained experts.

Do not expose yourself to hypnosis unless your physician advises it. Fresh Delicious LAURA SECORD CANDIES are now in. Try some.
