DescriptionEvDo you suffer from a chronic pain disorder? Do you have Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or another condition that leaves you in constant pain? Are you one of the millions of people that have tried everything to lose weight but haven’t been able to lose weight and keep it off? Is one of your New Year’s Resolutions to finally quit smoking? There is one treatment that can help with all of these conditions and more. Hypnosis. The medical community used to laugh off hypnosis as a parlor trick that magicians did to amuse children at birthday parties or entertain people in night clubs by making other people say stupid things or act in funny ways. And Hypnosis can do that, but it can also significantly improve your healthy.
Even though Hypnosis is not a very common medical treatment in the West it’s been used in various forms of Eastern and primitive medicine for centuries. As the West rediscovers many ancient healing practices like homeopathy and herbal medicine Western medical doctors and alternative therapy practitioners are rediscovering the benefits of using hypnosis to treat patients that don’t respond well, or don’t respond at all, to traditional Western medicine. Studies have found that hypnosis can have a positive impact on many different medical conditions including those associated with chronic pain and fatigue.
Psychologists have used hypnosis for a long time as part of psychological evaluation and treatment of patients. Some psychologists think that hypnosis is a form of dissociation, but that is a topic of great debate within the psychological community. Anecdotal evidence proves that hypnosis can be a great help when treating the psychological aspect of physical problems like addictions or dealing with the emotional and psychological aspects of diseases like Fibromyalgia.
Because disorders like additions or Fibromyalgia have both psychological and physical components patients that suffer from these disorders must treat both the physical and psychology causes for the disorder. Hypnosis is usually a safe and effective way to treat both parts of the problem at the same time. Even though the medical and psychological communities are split on the effectiveness of hypnosis as a medical treatment there are millions of people that it has helped who will tell you that it works.
