The Miracle of Medical Hypnosis
Well, actually it's not a miracle. It's perfectly natural and scientific. We are just not aware of how powerful the mind really is, or of the tremendous healing abilities it possesses. I would go as far as to say that medical hypnosis is the broadest and most versatile of all the healing tools available today.
Unfortunately, this tool cannot be dissected and analyzed by our standard scientific methods and so this wonderful gift has been pushed to one side, and more tangible tools have been given preference.
However, many skilled hypnotists, recognizing their art and science to be the ideal way to tap into the mind's unlimited potential, have been researching and exploiting this fascinating modality for many years. We can call this field 'Medical Hypnosis'. Medical Hypnosis has a very long history.
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. The American Medical Association has acknowledged that about 70% of illness starts in the mind. Some doctors estimate that figure should be at least 90%! This is known as psychosomatic illness. It can be caused through suggestion, or by mental stress and attitudes that 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! 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 psycho-neuro-immunology is the popular name given to research and therapy that uses the mind's latent healing abilities. It has been clearly shown that your thoughts and moods can cause changes in hormone and neurotransmitter levels (neurotransmitters are chemicals that communicate between your cells, controlling many of your body's processes). 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 very important 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 is so easily influenced 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. As our subconscious is ultimately 'in charge', hypnosis allows us to truly be in control of ourselves, with access to the unlimited potential of our minds. When this potential is used for healing the results can often seem miraculous. However, the results are perfectly natural.
Many scientific hypnosis demonstrations have baffled the minds of the audience. Warts can be made to vanish. Ice can create heat blisters. Bleeding from various pin pricks 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 powerful and proven principles to enhance our healing abilities.
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. Also, it can safely complement other therapies, and often enhances the results. Often when I work with medical or naturopathic doctors, chiropractors etc. their patients show positive results only after I use Medical Hypnosis. This is because the mind has the ability to block treatments from working.
Here is a brief list of some of the more common conditions Medical Hypnosis has been used for:
Allergies Duodenal ulcer Pain
Asthma Eyesight Sexual problems
Bed wetting Hair loss Skin disorder
Blushing Headaches/Migraines Sports improvement

Because of the hypnotized subject's amazing ability to control pain, Medical Hypnosis can also be used to create analgesia or even complete anesthesia! Thousands of successful major surgeries have been performed without any anesthetic at all - just using hypnosis! There is a long history of this. Also, recovery periods after surgery or illness can be shortened. Sound too good to be true? Well, it is true - and scientifically proven.
I hope you now understand that hypnosis is THE way to get your subconscious to improve your healing abilities and strengthen your immune system. The results can be extremely fast and truly amazing.
