EFFECTS OF HYPNOSIS • Brain scanning, or neuroimaging, has been used to study

the effects of hypnosis in three main broad categories of experiments. I briefly detail these below ;

• 1) Scans of the brain at rest versus scans of the brain in the hypnotic state

• 2) Scans of activity in the brain caused by hypnotic suggestion compared to scans of brain activity in response to non-hypnotic suggestions

• 3) Scans of brain when a person carries out a task under hypnosis compared to scans of the brain when the person carries out the same task in a non-hypnotic state

• All 3 types of experiment show marked differences in brain activity between the hypnotized and non-hypnotized states.

Advantages of Hypnotherapy

• The hypnotic state allows a person to be more open to discussion and suggestion. It can improve the success of other treatments for many conditions, including:

• Phobias, fears, and anxiety• Sleep disorders• Depression• Stress• Post-trauma anxiety• Grief and loss• Hypnosis also might be used to help with pain control and

to overcome habits, such as smoking or overeating. It also might be helpful for people whose symptoms are severe or who need crisis management.

Disadvantages of Hypnotherapy

1. Issues often take several sessions, or half a dozen sessions to shift, and some clients unreasonably imagine that a single session will 'fix them'. (they aren't broken, anyway) 

1. There is no massive shock to the system, for an issue to easily resolve -- this can lead the client to sometimes think it did not help, because it's so natural and comfortable. The change is what they want, made by their own mind. Feels totally normal. Is normal. 

2. It's so effective that you may not be able to get an appointment with the person you want to work with.

Uses of Hypnosis in Medicine

• Nausea and Vomiting associated with chemotherapy and pregnancy (hyperemisis gravidarum);

• Childbirth: Based upon our members' anecdotal evidence, approximately two thirds of women have been found capable of using hypnosis as the sole analgesic for labor.  This eliminates the risks that medications can pose to both the mother and child;

• Hemophilia: Hemophilia patients can often be taught to use self-hypnosis to control vascular flow and keep from requiring a blood transfusion;

• Allergies, asthma;• High blood pressure (hypertension);• Raynaud’s disease

Have you been hypnotized ? Find out, using a simple

scientific test.• Hypnosis, and the many things it can do, has been studied

for a long time. Many scientists have assumed that people can be hypnotized, but have struggled to figure out who is hypnotized, who is pretending, and who just wants to believe. It looks like now they've managed to distinguish between the three.

• In the movies, getting hypnotized can stop you from smoking, make you act like a fool on camera, get you to remember past lives, force you to tell the truth, put you in touch with ghosts, leave you with the unconscious urge to murder someone, and anything and everything else required to make the plot interesting. While plenty of people have been hypnotized in the real world, others have just pretended to be. Scientists have been looking for ways to tell the difference and have found one: a terrifying, nonreactive, dead-eyed stare.

Get Started with This Simple Self-Hypnosis Script

• 1. Sit comfortably with your feet on the floor and your hands on your lap.

• 2. Take 3 deep breaths, in through your nose, out through your mouth.

• 3. On the third breath, close your eyes and continue to breathe, deeply focusing on your breath.

• 4. Now slowly count down from 10 to 1 with each breath. After each number, think the word “deeper” to nudge you into a state of deeper relaxation.

• 5. After you reach 1, repeat a positive, affirming statement to yourself that you’ve decided on beforehand.

• 6. Repeat that statement to yourself for as long as you wish, usually a few minutes.

• 7. When you are done sit quietly for a moment, then slowly count from 1 to 5, visualizing energy returning to your body.

• 8. Open your eyes. You’re done.
