There is a new study being formed to see if the use of mind body techniques can be helpful in having patients stick to the rigors of a gluten-free Diet.
Eating even a small amount of gluten can damage the small intestine and damage will occur in anyone with the disease including people without any noticeable symptoms. It is sometimes very stressful and difficult for people with celiac disease to stick to a gluten-free diet.
Hypnosis can most definitely help people decide to stick to a diet regimen. Hypnosis can help people WANT and be MOTIVATED to read labels, accept the restrictions of an illness, adhere to recommended diets and foods. I use hypnosis for many clients who have diabetes, as well as other dietary restrictions. I am quite sure that if this study uses hypnosis, they will find positive results.
