**2. HEALTH: HYPNOSIS IS UNJUSTLY BLAMED, THOUGH TRUST IS GROWING. Michael Ellner, a hypnosis expert, can comment on the principal who was suspended by the Sarasota County, Fla., school board for hypnotizing students after a student he had previously assisted committed suicide: "This provided an opening for doctors and experts to opportunistically attack certified hypnosis professionals who are not also licensed therapists. The fact is that no therapists who claim to be experts in hypnosis were or are needed in this type of utilization of hypnosis. Additionally, 'therapy' is a broad term, and the fact is most licensed medical, dental and mental-health experts rarely refer their patients to licensed therapists who also dabble in hypnosis, because they obviously don't have much confidence in them. This is why hypnosis remains an evidenced-based 'alternative therapy.' The great news is that certified medical and dental hypnotherapists and hypnotists who are certified by the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association (IMDHA) are starting to gain the trust of the physicians in their communities, as evidenced by IMDHA members who are teaching hypnotic theory and practice at major medical conferences, medical and dental settings, and in medical schools." Ellner, located in New York City, is the lead author of a peer-reviewed paper on "Hypnosis in Disability Settings." He has educated thousands of licensed frontline pain-management clinicians, psychiatrists, plastic surgeons, cardiologists, radiologists, internists, ophthalmologists, doctors, dentists, physician assistants, nurses and certified hypnotherapists/hypnotists in hypnotic theory and techniques.

**3. SHOPPING: SIMPLE WAYS CONSUMERS CAN FIND SAVINGS WHEN SHOPPING FOR FOOD. David Rochon, founder and chief executive officer at SavingStar, a new paperless e-coupon service that helps shoppers save at more than 24,000 grocery and drug stores nationwide: "Food prices continue to rise. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' monthly Consumer Price Index, the price of food at home has gone up 3.6 percent since a year ago. The World Bank said every 10 percent increase in the price of crude oil resulted in a 2.7 percent jump in the overall cost of food. Consumers need a simple way to offset these costs and find new ways to save on everyday items. By turning to coupons, consumers can save more at the grocery store, and using innovative paperless services can help them so do in a convenient, financially rewarding and sustainable way." Rochon, located in Boston, can offer insight into grocery food prices and how consumers can save on everyday items. News Contact: Shaina Lamb, [email protected] Phone: +1-617-646-3334
