The Hypnosis Treatment Option: Proven Solutions for Pain, Insomnia, Stress, Obesity, and Other Common Health Problems

Clearing up the myths about hypnosis and presenting scientific research documenting its efficacy, this guide explains what hypnosis is and how it can be used to treat more than 50 common health problems, including chronic pain, sleep disorders, smoking cessation, asthma, obesity, and headaches. Hypnosis works as a healing, anesthetic, and pain-management tool, providing real, measurable health benefits to patients either on its own or in conjunction with other therapies and treatments. In addition, patients who learn and practice self-hypnosis are able to reduce their healthcare costs, prevent symptom relapses, take fewer medications, and make fewer emergency room visits. This book includes information on specific health issues for which hypnosis has been proven to be effective, including issues related to pregnancy and childbirth; up-to-date studies than demonstrate the results that can be achieved, including how it can benefit children; an appendix with resources for ongoing research; and a glossary of terms.

    A Well-Documented Explanation of the Benefits of Hypnosis I’ve read other books on Hypnosis and, while the patient stories can be interesting, they often lack substantive clinical citation. As such, I’ve always wondered about the science behind Hypnosis. In this book, Dr. Lewis does an excellent job of balancing interesting patient stories with verifiable references to clinical studies that back up his thesis that Hypnosis can be an effective tool for the treatment of a wide variety of mental and physical disorders. Dr. Lewis has a fluid and efficient writing style and this book answered many questions about Hypnosis, giving me further avenues of study.

    Comments from a chronic pain sufferer I was very impressed with the quality of the many reviews written for Dr. Lewis’s “Hypnosis Treatment Option” book. At age 75, as one who has had chronic pain since I was in my early twenties, I still constantly seek a better solution for pain than provided by drugs. Now this is an interesting comment to make, as I was just honored by the CA Board of Pharmacy for 50 years of practice in California. I am certainly not anti-pharmaceutical treatment for many conditions. Yet, pain has been a difficult diagnosis for drugs. The medical profession is a little afraid to prescribe, the pharmacists are often afraid to fill the prescriptions and the patient is often labeled as a “user.”This is the first decade that I have become comfortable with alternate therapies that provide real help. Among those are, diet control, therapeutic massage and self-hypnosis. I have been following Dr. Lewis for several years and enjoyed his previous recorded sessions for weight control and smoking cessation. I have actually had several sessions with a licensed therapist in self-hypnosis and saw that there was real value to this treatment option. However, in the full picture, my mind resisted as I never got over the “scam” or “placebo” effect of hypnosis. As Dr. Lewis presents real proven evidence in the written word, I feel I have intellectually been made to understand and I am excited to resume my experience with this powerful tool.Thank you, Dr. Lewis for making your book available in the most economical form possible. Now there is every reason to try hypnosis and your “old-time neighborhood druggist” gives you his full endorsement.

    Very readable; made me reconsider my skepticism about hypnosis I used to think hypnosis was a scam used by charlatans without any medical or psychological training to make a few bucks off off the gullible. This book surprised me by actually making me reconsider my skepticism. While I still am not completely convinced of the medical applications of hypnosis, the book gave me interesting data about how hypnosis may be an effective mental tool in treating physical pain.The whole book is written with a friendly, authoritative, and conversational tone, especially Part 1, which reads like a very good textbook on the history of hypnosis in western civilization. I especially appreciated the chapter on “how to choose a hypnotherapist,” which educated me on the subject without preaching, judging, or criticizing. Part 2 is much more difficult to get through, but as it is more like a reference list of illnesses, reading one chapter/sickness at a time is a much easier way to read this section.The book also gave me an unexpected insight into my career as an actor and acting teacher. I have long taught my students that their imagination can create physiological responses in their bodies, for example, looking at a picture of a snowy forest can actually cause you to genuinely shiver, or remembering the passing of a beloved pet can cause you shed real tears and feel real sadness. This book not only confirmed this phenomenon, it introduced me to research explaining why it happens, and gave me new ideas on how to teach my acting students more effectively.
