Remove Symptoms with Hypnosis

symptom-removalOne objection to hypnosis is that the results are temporary as well as symptomatic. It is well to remember that most medical therapy is specifically directed to symptom removal.

How permanent is most medical treatment? Once you couple hetero-hypnosis with self-hypnosis, you afford the patient the opportunity of utilizing suggestions for his own benefit any time they are needed. This, of course, can make symptom relief permanent.

As an example, I would see no harm in teaching a patient self-hypnosis for symptomatic relief from a problem of insomnia. It would certainly be better than physically depressing the higher brain centers with sleeping pills to produce unconsciousness every night.

Power of Suggestion

power-of-suggestionAll of us like to think that our actions and reactions are a result of logical thought processes, but the fact is that suggestion influences our thinking a great deal more than logic. Consciously or unconsciously, our feelings about almost everything are largely molded by ready-made opinions and attitudes fostered by our mass methods of communication. We cannot buy a bar of soap or a filtered cigarette without paying tribute to the impact of suggestion.

Stop SmokingThe health effects of smoking are well-known: everything from chronic bronchitis and emphysema to heart disease, stroke and lung cancer. This means that the professional hypnotist is besieged with men and women who wish to curtail or quit smoking.

Quitting smoking is easier said than done because smoking is a strong, conditioned reflex and cannot (except in rare instances) be accomplished by the will alone. The best way to stop smoking is to make it an impossibility, and that is exactly what you do when you use hypnosis to stop smoking. Read more

What is Hypnosis and How Does it Work?

August 16, 2008 · Filed Under Hypnosis, Self-Improvement · Comment 

Hypnosis is made possible because all human beings are suggestible.

SUGGESTION is the key to hypnotism.

We are all susceptible to being influenced by other persons in varying degrees. Consequently, hypnotic phenomena can be demonstrated in practically everyone. In some instances the person has to be conditioned to techniques of hypnosis and self-hypnosis. Everyone is influenced by his own thinking. It is this autosuggestible component in all of us that also makes self-hypnosis possible.

Because of everyone’s susceptibility to suggestion, Emile Coue, the French psychologist, gained wide recognition and popularity as a result of his “Day by day in every way—I am feeling better and better” approach to problems. Read more
