    Best answer: I was a Hypnotherapist for fifteen years before I retired... is hypnosis real?

    I used it everyday in that fifteen years to help overcome many problems from ceasing smoking (90% success) to drug addiction (70% success) including many phobias, depression, anxiety etc. I also helped people to become successful in business, studying and sport.

    Now, there are many misconceptions concerning hypnosis, hypnotherapy and stage hypnosis.

    Hypnosis is a natural state, not a supernatural state... indeed, every person puts themselves into the state at least twice a day. It is the moment between being asleep and being awake - it is not being asleep. The job of hypnotist is to help the person into the state and keep them there for longer than usual. It is hard for anyone to be in the state for longer than 1/2 an hour.

    Another misconception is that a person can be hypnotized against their will. In our training, we tried and the subject just bounced straight out of the state. It is also the case that a subject cannot be made to do anything in a state of hypnosis that they would not do so in waken state.

    Many have asked me about stage hypnosis; it seems to contradict the last paragraph. Here we have two more aspects of hypnosis:

    1/ there are levels of skill when it comes to being a subject. It is the case that everyone, just by the nature of being human, can be hypnotized. It is just that some are more able to go into trance. Contrary to popular belief, it is not the weak minded (what ever that is) who are the easiest to hypnotize, they are the hardest, as they resist.

    The stage hypnotist selects a person who is well able to go into a deep trance quickly

    2/ The stage hypnotist also selects a person who is an extrovert. You know the sort... just a few beers and they are up on the table singing 'Delilah'.

    So, bring together those two elements and you have a really 'good' show.

    Stage hypnosis is nothing like hypnotherapy. This is because hypnosis is nothing, it is just a state where the subconscious is open to suggestion... (remember, if the suggestion is against the subject's morals, they will bounce straight out). So the job of the therapist is to design a script that tackles the problem without invading the subject's morals.

    That is why I had to do eighteen months post a degree in psychology and a diploma in counselling.

    So, is hypnosis real, absolutely and you do it to yourself at least twice a day; it is a very useful tool in overcoming so many problems and is a wonderful state to be in.

    So I am very constipated, I usually have less then two bowel movements a week and usuay go days without going. I tried Mirlax, Mineral Oil, Prune Juice, you name it. Nothing has worked for me. My mother stuck her finger inside of me in an attempt to help me go but it didn't work . The only thing that makes me go is an enema. Every time I go to my doctor they just perscribe me enemas, I'm tired of having to have to take an enema in order to have a bowel movement. Is there anything I can do?

  • Why is everything treatable but not curable?

    I've had type one diabetes for years now. When I looked it up online to see if there was a cure, they are able to cure it in mice and successfully cure it in one man (seriously look it up). If this is the case then why isn't it more publicized or researched? Are people intentionally keeping cures away just to make money? If we could put a man on the moon, create wireless phones, and advance so much technologically and lifewise then why is there always "No Cure" for anything, yet nearly everything is always treatable?

    Back in 2013 i was 18 and pregnant with my 1st. I went for my glucose test. It turned out i had GD. Well the DR never refer me to a HR DR for my GD. Instead he prescribed me medication to lower my sugar levels without monitoring my sugars(no machine) and a diet to follow. Every time i would take my medication it would drop my sugars incredibly low. I would tell the nurse and they would say "that s why your supposed to follow that diet" A few weeks later i started going every 2 weeks as i was getting closed to my 3rd trimester. My feet where incredibly swollen. I couldn t wear any kind of shoes or sandals, not even crocs. I would only wear socks even to go out. Later the nurses begun telling me. "You are gaining 3lbs per week, you need to follow the diet" (yes i was already fat. I was 190lbs, but that doesn t mean i was eating like a pig to gain 3lbs every week right?) So finally i was admitted to the hospital because my heart rate was going off the roof. Untill the 4th hospitalization, their was another dr on the floor who is HR went to check on me. He said. "She has preeclampsia induce c section. I ended up having thyroid complications and lasted 2 weeks in the hospital in NICU with hear monitors in my chest without been able to see my newborn at all. 3 years later his been diagnosed with autism. I did my research and it turns out kids who are birth from a mother with preeclampsia are 3 times more likely to develop autism and in my case it was untreated up to 38 weeks.
