Hypnotherapy for medical issues can be used to assist you with your professional medical treatment. It is in no way to be an alternative or replacement for professional medical care, but it does offer the possibility of helping cope with medical conditions, and ease the symptoms in many cases.
If your doctor sees the benefit of Hypnotherapy and how it may help you, he or she can give you a referral to receive help from someone qualified like myself.
The key to Medical hypnosis is to empower your subconscious mind to boost your own natural healing powers.
The efficacy of medical hypnosis has been documented in more than 12,000 peer-reviewed studies and is considered the first-line treatment for many health-related conditions. Here are just a few examples:
From Cochrane, Gordon; Friesen, J., "An analysis of five weight loss studies reported in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology in 1996 showed that the “… weight loss reported in the five studies indicates that hypnosis can more than double the effects” of traditional weight loss approaches."
From the Journal of the National Cancer Institute,, "Studies show that during surgery, hypnotized women required 22% less pain medication and 34% less sedation."
From Mulak, A. (n.d.). "The evidence is overwhelming that hypnotherapy produces dramatic results in the improvement of symptoms for over 80% of IBS sufferers.
At a time when stressful situations are seemingly at an all-time high, medical hypnosis offers a worthwhile healing tool for both sufferers and practitioners.
