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 Pedantic Rather Than Hands-On Approach This book offers a lot of basic facts about hypnosis: How it does and doesn’t work (no Manchurian Candidates or suddenly thinking you’re a chicken because you hear the word “drumstick”), guided hypnosis, self-hypnosis, how to find a good hypnotist, and a whole raft of physical and mental ailments hypnosis has been used to treat.What it doesn’t offer is any practical application for these principles outside of a clinical setting, which I found to be a profoundly disappointing. Certainly, there’s a section about asthma or insomnia, but instead of a “here’s what you can do about it” approach, the author instead summarizes the existing research findings, offers a case study drawn from his own life, and moves briskly on to the next condition. If we’ve come that far in the book, we are on board with the idea that hypnosis is an effective treatment. The research summaries don’t tell us anything beyond that, and come across as pedantic.If you are new to the concept of hypnosis or skeptical about its health applications, you might get something out of this book. Btu if you are looking for a hands-on guide to managing your own health through hypnosis, you would be better served to keep looking.

    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.

    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.
