Practice Hypnosis, Depression Will Vanish



Try and think of all the things that hypnosis could be used for. The first thing that comes to mind is definitely entertainment. Next use would likely be in therapy for people who have had traumatic experiences. But have you ever associated hypnosis with depression treatment? The truth is that with hypnosis, depression can become much easier to deal with and is a common remediation practice.

The technical term for using hypnosis to treat depression is hypnotherapy and it is widely used in the medical community to treat depression along with a handful of other ailments. The premise is that with control, you can go into the mind and find the emotions and memories that have been the cause of the depression. In a sense it can be dangerous because in some cases you may have to relive early childhood memories that may still be somewhat traumatizing. It’s been proven time and time again by both psychiatrists and physicians that it is an effective treatment and it may be helpful in your case. A man named Taylor Starr studied with an underground hypnotist group and has acquired some extremely powerful information that may be able to help you with your battle.

Hypnosis involves a lot of concentration, especially self-hypnosis so with practice you can gain more and more control over the mind. This added control will undoubtedly help you overcome depression if you’re determined. Taylor Starr’s program won’t be around for long though because it’s extremely controversial information. If you’re interested then you may want to check out his website at undergroundhypnosis.com because it’s difficult to say just how long the program will be offered for. Remember that if you’re determined to learn hypnosis, depression will soon vanish.

Hypnotherapy Is Essential Aid For Cancer Patients

There are often mixed reviews about hypnotherapy, oftentimes coming from the medical profession and other sources of health care. Hypnotherapy is always misunderstood, and has not been publicized as a good treatment for cancer. The reason for this is the fact the hypnotherapy is still perceived by people based on the comical depictions of hypnosis on TV. In reality, hypnotherapy is beneficial in a lot of medical conditions. It can help people overcome phobias, quit smoking, and alleviate stress.

Modern hypnotherapists are a far cry from the comic characters portrayed on television, and are people who are actually dedicated and serious in promoting an alternative way to heal, psychologically, physically and even spiritually.

What then, is the truth between hypnotherapy and cancer? Does it really work? For these past decades, many physicians who keep an open mind about alternative ways to treat patients have promoted that hypnotherapy can actually help cancer patients recover, in many ways. Many cancer survivors who have tried hypnotherapy attest that this is what cured them. Nevertheless, actual studies have shown that not only does hypnotherapy cure per se the cancer patient, but actually enhances the quality of life of people battling cancer.

How Does Hypnotherapy Work for Cancer Patients?

Hypnosis, sometimes called an altered state of consciousness, is a condition akin to that when people are about to sleep or are just in the act of waking up. During this condition that hypnotherapists induce, suggestions are given to the patient who will find its way into the latter’s subconscious mind, without the interference of the conscious mind. The things that are being said are what counts, rather than the state the patient is in during hypnosis. Once a person joins a session of hypnotherapy, this patient can often induce self-hypnosis. Thus when a need arises for hypnotherapy and the patient is unable to visit his or her hypnotherapist, then that patient can hypnotize oneself. For this reason, hypnotherapy may be considered a very affordable means of treatment.

Reduction of Side Effects

The side effects of the conventional treatment of cancer like chemotherapy can be devastating. Fatigue, pain, vomiting and nausea recur whenever the patient undergoes chemotherapy. Promoting a more serene state, hypnosis reduces the patient’s anxiety of these effects, and more often than not, reduces the side effects of chemotherapy because of the enhanced well-being of the patient.

A cancer victim’s life is really stressful. Through hypnosis, this stress is greatly reduced, so a patient’s reception of his or her medication becomes actually easier. Hypnotherapy has a calming effect, and can overwhelmingly improve the life of a patient battling cancer. Because hypnosis alleviates the symptoms and side effects of cancer, caregivers and nurses find that this helps them too, because it is a lot easier to care for the patient.

The Clinical Uses of Rapid Hypnotherapy


During my training as a professional hypnotherapist and during the many years that led to my instructor status involving Neuro-Linguistic Programming, I constantly heard my teachers espousing the wonders of Dr. Milton H. Erickson. Yes, it was Erickson, who has been called the Father of American Hypnotherapy, who gave us tremendous insights into permissive approaches to hypnosis. However, as the cult of Ericksonian followers emerged, it seems that an entire universe of very effective hypnosis was completely whitewashed from the realm of clinical application. Indeed, many authors and self-styled experts – to include international associations that claim the authority to certify hypnotherapists – fail to recognize the power of relatively rapid and direct approaches using suggestion and imagination to heal the mind and body.

The indirect, naturalistic, and permissive Ericksonian approaches are currently dominating medical and psychological applications of hypnosis. They are elegant and particularly suited to fearful and resistant subjects. Clearly, a competent clinician should strive to master the many techniques associated with this system. Nevertheless, should one limit their education solely to the development of such skills, I am afraid to point out that their arsenal of hypnotherapy talents will remain stilted and ineffective in many situations. This is unfortunate, as there are a breadth of highly effective techniques available to the practitioner who seeks to fully understand the wealth and true nature of hypnosis in the healing arts.

Unfortunately, among many of the licensed professionals there seem to be an unjustified prejudice regarding non-Ericksonian skills. In fact, many a publication seeks to establish the credibility of the author’s ideas by unjustly – with limited and uneducated insights – denigrating the traditional skills, usually by using the term authoritarian to bash them. Most of them fail to realize that these near-mythological rants simply stem from a rather emotional dislike between Dr. Erickson, and his chief rival David Elman, a former radio personality and stage hypnotist, who taught thousands of medical doctors and dentists during the 1950’s and 60’s. This rift has been further exacerbated by a handful of Ericksonian-oriented associations who continue the irrational exclusivity proposed by Erickson. The truth, however, is that the techniques taught by Elman were as brilliant in their own right as those of Dr. Erickson.

While Elman was never licensed in the medical or mental health fields, his ideas appear to have been a merger between his traditional direct approaches – which were apparently influenced by stage hypnosis techniques – and his thorough studies of a long line of medical and psychological authorities such as Hippolyte Bernheim, MD, and Henri Munro, MD. It was his effective synthesis of his practical stage-oriented skills with his profound understanding of medical applications of hypnosis that prompted a group of New Jersey physicians – which I believe to be frustrated students of Dr. Erickson – to approach Elman and request that he instruct them on the proper use of hypnosis in medicine. Even though he was quite clear that he lacked formal medical qualifications, he found that his talents were very congruent with the needs of the doctor’s patients.

Elman’s contributions were many. His students learned quick 3-minute techniques that soon evolved into 1-minute techniques and even the wonderful skill of Waking Hypnosis. (The level of trance created by these physicians would never have been achieved using Erickson’s methods.) Add to this the ability to rapidly create levels of trance sufficiently deep for use during extensive surgery. While in my exhaustive study of Elman I found he had difficulty with about 10% of his subjects, he was able to achieve results in many situations that Erickson regarded as impossible.

I have been teaching Elman Hypnotherapy – as well as Ericksonian hypnosis – for several years now. My students have reported very interesting results. This includes medical doctors giving what would normally be painful inoculations without the awareness of their patients and removing sutures and stitches without any form of anesthesia. Also, psychologists and counselors mentioned elegantly relieving pre-surgical stress and alleviating lower back pain. All of this was done not by authoritatively barking commands at a surprised subject, but with the calm, respectful tone that is normally attributed to the permissive practitioner.

A competent, professional hypnotherapist and any licensed professional that regularly employs hypnosis in a medical or mental health practice must become proficient in the wider range of skills. By understanding the that basis of hypnosis is the bypass of resistance and empowering efficient selective thinking, the breadth of the clinicians skills can provide a multitude of approaches to what is a very powerful, yet simple healing technique.

3 Things You Must Know About How Hypnotherapy Works Before You Try It!

Firstly, it is essential to know that everyone has experienced the state of hypnosis. For example, when you are absorbed in reading a book and are oblivious to your surroundings, or when you are driving home and realize that you are on automatic, that you are thinking about something else while driving. This daydream state is very much like the state of hypnosis that a therapist helps you achieve.

Just before you fall asleep, (that state between sleep and being awake) and again in the morning when you first wake up, you are in that daydream state. This is the state when your critical faculty steps aside and your subconscious mind comes forward. It is the subconscious that holds the key to change of habits and reinforcement of positive enhancements.By listening to the hypnotherapists voice,and his directions the client enters a state of relaxed awareness.

Secondly, all hypnosis is self hypnosis.Contrary to the myths that surround the subject, nobody can make us do anything we don’t want to do. If we refuse to cooperate, then no one can guide us to the state of hypnosis. The hypnotherapist will talk with you prior to the session, about your goal and reason for coming to see him. Together you will decide on precisely what you are looking to achieve or heal. The Hypnotherapist is merely a kind of facilitator between yourself and your subconscious.The client is always in control. If for any reason he decides not to cooperate by opening his eyes or not following the suggestions of the hypnotherapist, the session will simply not be effective. Continue reading
