Clearing up the myths about hypnosis and presenting scientific research documenting its efficacy, this guide explains what hypnosis is and how it can be used to treat more than 50 common health problems, including chronic pain, sleep disorders, smoking cessation, asthma, obesity, and headaches. Hypnosis works as a healing, anesthetic, and pain-management tool, providing real, measurable health benefits to patients either on its own or in conjunction with other therapies and treatments. In addition, patients who learn and practice self-hypnosis are able to reduce their healthcare costs, prevent symptom relapses, take fewer medications, and make fewer emergency room visits. This book includes information on specific health issues for which hypnosis has been proven to be effective, including issues related to pregnancy and childbirth; up-to-date studies than demonstrate the results that can be achieved, including how it can benefit children; an appendix with resources for ongoing research; and a glossary of terms.
