Medical Hypnosis

Hypnosis has been recognized by the AMA as a legitimate medical treatment since 1958. I b elieve that the main reason Physicians don’t practice hypnosis is simply because it takes too much time to adequately offer an intervention.

Hypnosis is extremely effective with pain management but a ethical hypnotist will require a prescription from the clients doctor. A hypnotist working in conjunction with a medical professional can effectively be a part of the treatment of stress related disorders: irritable bowel syndrom, diabetes, cardiocascular disorders and even cancer.

Beware of the hypnotist that claims to be able to treat these problems as an alternative to medical care. It may be possible but it is much more safe to have a medical professional at least monitor the progress of treatment.
