Hypnotherapy Can Cure Ibs

Researchers from Wythenshawe Hospital in Manchester have found that hyp­no­therapy can be used to effectively treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in 70 per cent of cases. Irritable bowel syndrome is a func­tional bowel disorder, which causes abdominal pain, and in some cases, fever, diarrhoea, bloating, con­stipation and nausea. It is a common ailment, which is thought to affect one in three people at some point in their lives. The causes of irritable bowel syndrome are unknown, par­tic­ularly as IBS suf­ferers show no physical abnor­malities in the bowel. Because of this, many spe­cialists believe that stress is a major factor in causing this painful bowel disorder. Cur­rently, a hyp­no­therapist at the Manchester hospital is treating more than 60 irritable bowel syndrome suf­ferers every week. Patients are coming from loc­ations throughout the country to experience this cutting-??edge course of 12 hyp­no­therapy treatments, which means the hospital now has an 18-??month waiting list.The methodology used in private practise tends to work in just 6 weekly sessions following an initial consultation.

Should I be scared of Hypnosis part II

Truthfully, I’m glad not to work seven days a week. But I’m dis­ap­pointed that we haven’t fully set the record straight on hypnosis, par­tic­ularly hyp­no­therapy for the purpose of self improvement rather than stage enter­tainment. Here are the mis­con­ceptions causing most common fears and the truths behind them: “I’ll get stuck in hypnosis, forever.” You cannot get stuck. Even if your prac­ti­tioner were to collapse in the middle of your session, and not end the session. Here’s what would happen: after not getting any input for a few minutes, your sub­con­scious mind would notice that and exit the hypnotic state. And you would nat­urally rouse yourself. “The hyp­no­therapist will make me tell my secrets” “and that includes bank account numbers and the times I cheated,” the client worries. No reputable hyp­no­therapist would do that but even if he tried, your powerful sub­con­scious mind, whose main purpose is to protect you, would call a foul and keep quiet. “I’ll become a robot under the control of the hyp­no­therapist.” This is similar to the above. Your sub­con­scious mind, geared to protect you from danger and damage would simply not par­ti­cipate in a venture of this kind. “I read about a cult leader who used hypnosis.” Frankly the cult leaders who lure people into blind devotion are using more charm, charisma and per­suasion tactics than hypnosis, but if they do something they call “hypnosis,” it is useful mostly as an explanation for “why I fell for it.” An excuse likely to be accepted because of zombie movies of the past. If you want to feel even safer about hypnosis, look for doc­u­mented cases where hyp­no­ther­apists were sued by their clients for unpro­fes­sional behaviour. Now compare those to other mental health pro­fes­sionals, and doctors, and dentists too. The number of hyp­no­ther­apists wouldn’t fill a hotel room. “I can’t be hyp­notised so I’d be wasting my money.” This includes I’m too smart to be hyp­notised, too dumb to be hyp­notised, too scared to be hyp­notised, too antsy to be hyp­notised, too unlike-??everyone-??else to be hyp­notised, and more. Here’s the greater truth, with a heaping spoonful of honesty: “I don’t want to be hyp­notised” or “It makes me feel better about myself to believe I can’t be hyp­notised.” If you don’t want to be hyp­notised or won’t follow instructions for going into hypnosis, you won’t be hyp­notised. If you’re too dis­tracted to con­centrate, or exceedingly nervous about trying, it may take a little more doing than the average person, but it is do-??able. If you have an IQ of less than 70, you might have dif­fi­culties, but if you’re reading and under­standing this, you’re good to go. I have worked with clients on referral from psy­cho­ther­apists for help with ADD/?ADHD and OCD. With patience and intention, they even learned to hyp­notize themselves. If you think you’ll feel uncom­fortable with the hyp­no­therapist (which can often be dis­covered during your first phone call with the prac­ti­tioner), or you’re just not in the mood, or you need some questions answered first, it’s okay to get those covered before you embark on the session. It’s okay to be a little scared about being hyp­notised. Fear holds within it two things: A respect for something that may be powerful and life changing and a desire to keep yourself safe. Both are worthwhile thoughts. If the fear gets in your way of exper­i­encing something that may change your life for the better, don’t let it. Get educated about hypnosis. Then find a hyp­no­therapist you feel com­fortable with. Or find several. Ask friends, doctors, ther­apists for referrals Vet each one, ask questions. Read their websites. Interview them by phone, but don’t keep them on longer than 10–15 minutes. (You can talk more at your first appointment.) Then schedule a single session, and decide if you want more. Once you try it, you’ll know there was really little to worry about. But you still get to brag about your bravery and what a great hypnotic subject you are.

Should I be scared of Hypnosis

Sometimes it’s as simple as this. A woman calls me about her smoking problem. The problem is her doctor says she needs to stop smoking, and she says she wants to quit, but she simply isn’t quitting. Cold turkey doesn’t work and neither does the NHS quit smoking or even the nicotine drug her doctor pre­scribed and she faithfully took. Now she’s both taking the drug and smoking. “I’m des­perate,” she says, “So I called you.” Long story short: she comes in and quits in one session. Longer story: some people are so afraid of a painless pro­cedure called hyp­no­therapy that they’ll try everything else first, including drugs with known and unknown side effects. But what about the side effect of hyp­no­therapy? Is it dangerous? The side effect of hyp­no­therapy is relaxation. The intended effect of hyp­no­therapy? That you get what you came for! In the case of smoking ces­sation, that you stop poisoning yourself and making cigarette man­u­fac­turers rich. There’s only one problem with this kind of relaxation. You have to make sure after your session ends that you are fully roused, alert and aware before crossing a street or turning the key in the ignition. That’s usually about it for negative side effects. But that’s not the end of the story or clients would have me working 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to help them quit smoking, attract love rela­tionships, or excel effort­lessly in their chosen career, which are my specialties.
