What can be cured by hypnosis? This question sounds daily on thematic websites and forums. Another method of quackery! This statement is often found from opponents of hypnotherapy. Now we could say that everything is individual, and what has not helped one, will help the other, if not for one “but”. A good hypnotherapist can help everyone, regardless of the level of hypnability.
Which diseases are treated by hypnosis
Hypnotherapy is a method that allows you to establish contact with the human subconscious by immersion in a trance state. For many years it has been used in psychiatric and psychotherapeutic practice. Unfortunately, psychotherapists who have mastered perfectly the hypnotherapeutic techniques, now weighing gold. But if you find a professional, you can get rid of even the most serious illness. So what diseases are treated with hypnosis? First of all, these are psychological disorders, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, various types of addictions.
Hypnosis can be treated by somatic diseases, such as:
- stomach ulcer;
- bronchial asthma;
- hypertensive disease;
- regular migraines;
- high sweating;
- numbness in different parts of the body.
Our century is a whole collection of addictions: alcohol, drugs, tobacco, psychological, dependence on boarding school and TV, gambling, and more. The method of hypnotherapy is tightly included in the three most effective methods of treatment of these problems. And all because with its help, it is possible to establish the reason that caused the addiction. As we know, it is impossible to completely get rid of any disease, if you bluntly muffle its symptoms without removing the cause.
Interestingly, hypnosis helps to get rid of even an allergic reaction. How to get rid of it? It’s all because the causes of allergies are related to conflicts in the human inner world. Practicing psychotherapists- homeopathists claim that the cause of each disease is related to the emotional and psychological experiences of the person. But since people have not yet learned to establish contact with their subconscious, hypnotherapy helps them. If we proceed from these considerations, it turns out that hypnosis helps in the treatment of absolutely all diseases.
The state of deep relaxation itself has a therapeutic effect on the body. Hypnosis treatment normalizes breathing and the work of internal organs.
How does the treatment go?
The session of hypnotherapy begins with a conversation between the hypnologist and the patient. Once the problem is identified, the specialist moves on to the hypnotherapy session. For this person is immersed in a state of trance. Each hypnotherapist has his own methods. Some use relaxing music, some use incense, others use a pendulum. There are hypnotherapists who plunge a person into a trance state. But this ability is inherent to units.
In a state of trance, the human brain works in a muffled rhythm. Visions and voices that seem to be in a state of deep trance, are perceived by the patient as reality. Through hypnosis, one’s own reality is created and gradually realized. The image created by the patient in a session of hypnotherapy is invisibly transferred to the external and internal world.
As a rule, hypnosis from disease is used in complexes. That is, one session will not be enough to cure, for example, a severe depression or phobia.
The use of hypnosis in the treatment of diseases
What else can be treated with hypnosis? Of course, these are psychiatric diseases. There is a method developed specifically for this group of diseases. It is used to treat and prevent mental disorders. It is possible to determine that a person has gone into a trance by such signs:
- the eye is fixed at one point (many hypnologists ask patients to close their eyes);
- movement and swallowing reflex are slowed down;
- muscles are relaxed;
- heart rhythm is reduced;
- breathing and blinking of the eyes are slowed down.
- Those who treat hypnosis know that mental illness requires a deeper trance. Mild hypnosis, for example, by Erickson, is less effective.
