Hypnosis may not only help to relieve pain but it helps to preserve the dignity and well-being of patients without the dependence on large amounts of prescription medications . Remember, ALL medications have side effects and people develop a tolerance eventually leading to increased dosages and possible addiction.
Even the National Institutes of Health recommends using hypnosis as a tool in pain management! Did you know that an estimated 26 million Americans have frequent or persistent back pain and 50 million Americans are partially or fully disabled from some form of chronic pain?How about the fact that 1 out of every 6 Americans have a form of painful arthritis.
My goal is to help patients feel as if they have some control again! Stop taking pills as if they are M&M candy. I recommend going to http://www.raystrand.com and looking up his book "Death by Prescription". He also talks about bionutrition and the Usana products which, after careful investigation and study, I have chosen to be the only nutritionally based vitamin(the only vitamin listed in the PDR), I take for myself and my own family or recommend to clients.
