A technique of massage to initiate a past life regression in an unhypnotised subject?

A technique of massage to initiate a past life regression in an unhypnotised subject?

Beware!: I have followed the "past life regression" business for decades. I'd urge extreme caution. Whether or not real, verifiable memories are ever produced, this kind of technique causes people to focus on fantasy rather than working on the things they must do in real life to make their lives, work and relationships better. Tread very carefully. ...Read more

Can having an intense interest in a particular subject (ie. Dinosaurs) be a sign of OCD in children?

A lady having a problem of learning, self confident lose and has a slurring speech while given viva's.And she's a medical student.What to do to get off?

On a psychological point of view which is more important fr a successful marriage love or an affluent guy with all money..

On a psychological point of view which is more important fr a successful marriage love or an affluent guy with all money..

What's your guess?: Marrying for money will not provide love or emotional connection for either partner -- and at best is more like a business deal. If both people are aware of the relationship's basis then they can agree or not. At worst it exploits someone who may think he's loved personally, when his money is the desired object. Usually this kind of deal backfires, and the woman is misused also. ...Read more

Is there a great amount of radiation to one's body when having a cone beam CT done for dental work? Can a cbct be taken again during a 2nd opinion?

Is there a great amount of radiation to one's body when having a cone beam CT done for dental work? Can a cbct be taken again during a 2nd opinion?

CBCT scans: The radiation for a cbct is greater than some imaging techniques and less than others. 'great' is a subjective term. When needed, the cbct scan is extremely helpful in making a diagnosis. There is no reason to take a second one as long as the first one is satisfactory which is almost a given. You can get a copy on a disk and take it with you when you go for the second opinion. ...Read more
