Hypnosis for Mind Body Healing

It is now common knowledge that hypnosis has superior results for weight loss, quitting smoking, boosting confidence, stress reduction, memory improvement and so on. However, few know of the powerful effects hypnosis can have on the physical body, and its healing and immune systems.

This field is known as Medical Hypnosis. The natural results often seem miraculous. Unfortunately, since this tool cannot be easily analyzed by scientific methods it has been pushed to one side.

Nonetheless, Medical Hypnosis has a very long, well documented history. For instance, starting in 1846, Dr. James Esdaile performed over 2000 operations using hypnosis as the sole means of anesthetic. Back then the chances of surviving even minor surgery were slim, yet Dr. Esdaile had a very low mortality rate and rapid post-operative recovery. If chloroform hadn't been introduced it is likely that hypnosis would be commonly used in surgery today. Hypnosis has also been shown to speed up post-operative recovery.

The British Medical Association approved hypnosis in 1955 followed by the American Medical Association 1958. There are countless modern studies showing the effectiveness of medical hypnosis.

So what is Medical Hypnosis, and what can it do for you?

Simply put, Medical Hypnosis is the use of hypnosis to assist physical healing and changes. The American Medical Association and many doctors have acknowledged that between 70 to 90% of illness starts in the mind. Negative mental states can weaken the body's delicate defense mechanisms.

Doesn't it seem obvious that if the mind can be the underlying factor for so much illness then it should also be able to heal that illness? Of course! Even the incredible effect of placebos proves this. I cannot begin to imagine why the health professions give so little attention to this obvious conclusion. Well, things are changing - slowly...

The field of study and research in this area is known as psycho-neuro-immunology. It has been clearly shown that your thoughts and moods can cause changes in hormone and neurotransmitter levels. The brain and its chemicals interact with every other part of the body.

This knowledge is not new. Andrew Schalley and Roger Guillemin received the Nobel Prize in 1977 after showing how the brain uses neurotransmitters to 'give orders' to the body. Research at Michigan State University has demonstrated that a single cell can be controlled by how we think. Our state of mind plays a major role in our body's susceptibility to illness and its ability to heal itself.

Since the body is controlled by the brain, and the brain by the mind, it follows that we can influence our body through the mind. Hypnosis allows us access to our subconscious mind, and is therefore the best tool for this purpose.

Many scientific hypnosis demonstrations have baffled the minds of the audience. Warts can be made to vanish. Ice can create heat blisters. Bleeding can be turned on and off at will. People walk on red hot coals without burning. Strength can be increased many times. These demonstrations are just to show the incredible potential we all have. Medical hypnosis uses these principles to enhance our health.

Medical Hypnosis has many favorable qualities. It is totally safe and non-invasive. There are no unpleasant side effects. It generally costs only a fraction of standard medical treatment. Hypnosis can easily work alongside other therapies, and might even enhance their effectiveness. This is because the mind has the ability to block treatments from working.

Here is a brief list of some of the more common issues Medical Hypnosis has been used for:

* Allergies * Asthma * Bed wetting * Blushing * Body building * Breast enlargement * Childbirth * Duodenal ulcer * Eyesight * Hair loss * Headaches/Migraines * Immune strengthening * Insomnia * Menstrual problems * Pain Control * Sexual problems * Skin disorders * Sports improvement * Stammering * Twitching * Warts

The list could go on for ever!

You were born with an incredible ability to heal. A medical hypnotist's job is to help you utilize it. Your doctor might need to diagnose your problem, and you may need a referral from them. Your doctor is necessary, so always consult with your physician concerning a medical issue.

One final word. Be sure to check that a hypnotist is properly qualified. Keep in mind that a medical of psychology degree does not include hypnosis training, so check their qualifications in terms of hypnosis training and experience. A medical hypnotist does not have to be a medical doctor, but will happily work with your doctor. I urge you to discover for yourself just how great medical hypnosis can be.
