Can Hypnosis Work For Alcoholism

 
 
Hypnosis is the use of suggestions to change behaviors or thinking patterns.  The use of hypnosis for alcoholism started several decades ago.  The results of hypnotism are mixed and therefore it is not a standard form of treatment.  In order for hypnosis to work properly the person must have an open mind and must be willing to make the changes necessary in their life.

Hypnosis is used successfully with many types of addictive behaviors including smoking and drug use.  To start with a good hypnosis therapy requires several or more sessions to be successful.  A good hypnotist will start with a complete and thorough history before beginning the treatments.

This personal history helps the hypnotist to better understand the person and their thoughts and motives.  When applied properly, hypnosis can be very successful.

The hypnosis sessions themselves usually last anywhere from 40 to 90 minutes each, and  unlike popular belief a person who is hypnotized cannot do whatever they are told.  In fact, they are not totally “under” but instead are in a completely relaxed and open state of mind.  The mind is then open to suggestions.  The hypnotist uses several relaxation methods to bring the person to this receptive state.

Relaxation techniques include breathing exercises that help the person become calm and relaxed.  Soft music may be playing during the session.  The hypnotist then talks to the person.  Often they use a script that is designed specifically for use with their problem – in this case alcohol dependency.

A person must be receptive to the hypnosis treatment in order for it to work.  Good hypnosis treatment may take several treatments to see results.  Hypnosis often uses everyday things to help the person overcome their problem.  For example, the hypnotist may use the suggestion of a red car.  Every time you see a red car you repeat to yourself that you will not drink.  This reinforcement helps to keep the therapy going between sessions.

Hypnosis works by changing the way a person thinks.  Instead of instantly thinking that a drink will help calm them down they will learn to replace this with other more productive thoughts.  Eventually the old thought patterns are abandoned and new patterns are put in their place.

Results of hypnosis treatments vary greatly.  The results are often dependant on the severity of the alcohol problem, the length of time the person has had the dependency and the willingness of the person to want to change.

Weight loss

There are a lot of differing opinions on the soundness of hypnosis as a form of treatment. Nevertheless scientific studies appear to have found that hypnosis is not only a genuine form of therapy but that it also has an impressive success rate.

It is only to be expected that before experiencing a complimentary therapy, such as hypnotherapy, that a person would wish to be provided with evidence that it really works. There have been a number of scientific studies since the 20th century and they all seem to arrive at the same conclusion, hypnosis most definitely does work. Within this article I will disclose just a couple of the many pieces of research about hypnosis and how they show that hypnosis works.

Ahead of this though I’d like to describe how hypnosis works as many people are unaware of this. People who have not been hypnotized often picture it to be a type of sleep where you may be made to do things against your will. This common thought is brought about by street hypnosis where the hypnotist “manipulates” their volunteer. The important word in that previous sentence was volunteer. A street hypnotist will ask for volunteers, and merely by volunteering they’re already agreeing to do what the hypnotist asks them to do. It’s easy to “hypnotize” a person into acting like a chicken in front of a crowd but if the hypnotist then asked them to something against their morals, do you think the volunteer would do so? Certainly not because the volunteer is there to enjoy themselves, not go against their on belief system.

Hypnotherapy (therapy from hypnosis) is quite different from street hypnotism. Before a therapeutic hypnosis session begins the hypnotist and the client will talk about the aims of the client and decide on the topics the session will focus on.

It is understood that hypnosis works fundamentally by opening the unconscious mind to suggestion. From here the hypnotherapist can place suggestions to assist the client to achieve their goal, whether it be to lose weight, quit smoking or another thing entirely.

At this point you should have a reasonable knowledge of how hypnosis works so now I shall provide proof that hypnosis works as a kind of treatment.

Hypnosis and Weight Loss

In research to test the effectiveness of hypnosis on weight loss over one hundred subjects (ranging from the age of 17 to 67) completed a behavioral treatment either with or without the addition of hypnosis. This treatment lasted 9 weeks and after follow ups both 8 months and 2 years later the people who used hypnosis enjoyed a long-term weight loss rate much higher than those who didn’t. It was also found that those who used hypnosis were much better at achieving and maintaining their ideal weight goals.

Journal for Clinical Psychology January 1985 41(1):35-41
Effectiveness of Hypnosis as an Adjunct to Behavioral Weight Management

Hypnosis Effects Can Be Scanned

In 2009 at Hull University scientists discovered that hypnosis had a detectable effect on brain patterns when examined. This shows that hypnosis is not merely a sop therapy as many cynics state it to be.

Dr. Michael Heap, a psychologist involved in the research, concluded that hypnosis primes the mind for suggestion. Not only has this study shown proof that hypnosis works it has also adequately explained how it works.

Once the mind is open to suggestion a hypnotherapist can then assist their client achieve their goals. I have just discussed a couple of the many studies into hypnosis however their they have been many more. There is proof that hypnosis works for pain relief, IBS relief, skin problems, increased fertility and much more.

Maybe the ultimate evidence that hypnosis works though is to experience it for yourself as personal accounts also appear to indicate that hypnosis does actually work. Even A-List stars such as Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have admitted that they have used hypnosis to successfully stop smoking.

So if you are thinking about using hypnosis, please do so with confidence, as all the evidence dictates that hypnosis really does work.

Medical Hypnosis

Historically, hypnosis has been used as a medical tool for over 200 years. The British Medical Association in 1955 and the American Medical Association in 1958 officially recognized hypnosis as a bona fide medical treatment.

In 1845 James Esdaile, a Scottish surgeon began to work with hypnosis, then called “mesmerism” in a prison hospital in Calcutta. He read about the use of mesmerism by several surgeons in France who discovered that when patients would go into this state they could perform surgery painlessly.

Everyone has the ability to remove or control pain with hypnosis. This is true because hypnosis helps a person alter the way they perceive situations, circumstances, events, sensations, objects or feelings.

When someone is hypnotized for pain control, the hypnotherapist is changing, removing or blocking the sensation of pain to the mind. This makes it either a more acceptable sensation or allows the person to realize that there is no longer a need for the pain so they can release it. If the mind will block the sensation, the client’s body may still have the pain, but the mind doesn’t register it as pain anymore. Essentially what is happening is that the client is creating an anesthetic with their mind that is causing complete or partial loss of pain. The nerves are still sending signals to the brain, but the brain is changing the way it notices the signals.

Pain is categorized in two different ways. It is either chronic or acute.

Chronic pain remains unrelieved for a period of 6 months or longer. It can be of different types and in different locations. It may not have specific tissue damage associated with it. Chronic pain can have either physical or psychological origins.

Acute pain, which is temporary is related to specific tissue damage and reduces in intensity as the damaged area heals. It is usually caused by some kind of accident.

For most types of chronic pain conditions, there is a relationship between the psychological state and the intensity of the pain experience. Stress, depression, or anxiety can all increase the intensity of the pain. In light of this information, it is possible to utilize direct suggestion, stress management techniques and other hypnotic techniques to benefit chronic pain clients as well. They can help to reduce the intensity of the pain experience.

Virtually everyone experiences major chronic or acute pain sometime during his or her lifetime. Many people will turn to medications only to find that some of the side effects can be almost as bad as the pain.

Some areas where hypnosis can work with pain control are:

  • Injuries – Injuries are normally caused by an accident and they can be anything from a broken bone to a burn, cut, bump or bruise.
  • Illness and Diseases – Many people suffer from cancer, migraine headaches or arthritis. With an illness or a disease the pain is usually not a sudden thing. People have usually been suffering for quite a while.
  • Pre-Operative – The use of positive suggestions before surgery occurs help bolster a person’s attitude or confidence and can be of significant benefit.
  • Post-Operative – In these cases the rate of recovery of a person is radically improved. Medical and psychological research has shown that empowered patients who control their own feelings and thoughts heal faster and better following surgery.
  • Procedures – These would be things where an actual procedure is taking place. The birth of a child or dental work would be good examples. Anticipation of pain makes it worse. Clients experiencing relaxation without fear, and with confidence in his/her ability to handle the situation, deal with the procedures with much less pain.
  • Preventative – People who are proactive about their health also benefit from hypnosis. It helps people to develop the correct mind set to prevent illness in the first place.
  • Self-Healing – The mind controls the physical body, however this should only be used in conjunction with other forms of treatment.

I will always require a doctor’s referral for pain control sessions. That is for the client’s protection. We would never want to block the signal that there is something wrong so that the client doesn’t get needed treatment or even delay treatment. We would never want to mask a symptom by using hypnosis to control pain! Hypnosis can be a very effective aide to medical treatment but not a replacement.

Following is what some experts have to say about hypnosis:

Dr. David Cheek, M.D., who has vast experience in the field, writes, “We can do more harm with ignorance of hypnotism than we can ever do by intelligently using hypnosis and suggestion constructively.”

Dr. Julius Grinker states, “The so-called dangers from hypnosis are imaginary. Although I have hypnotized many hundreds of patients, I have never seen any ill effects from its use.”

Psychologist Rafael Rhodes, in his book Therapy Through Hypnosis, writes: “Hypnotism is absolutely safe. There is no known case on record of harmful results from its therapeutic use.”

David Spiegel, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Stanford University School of Medicine, put it this way: “Physicians often worry that hypnosis involves significant risks to patients. Actually, the phenomenon is not dangerous and has fewer side effects than even the most benign medications.”

Effective pain control can make the life of individuals who experience chronic pain much more bearable. It can result in enhanced physical, psychological, social and spiritual well being.

Hypnosis In Medicine

Hypnosis In Medicine

Medical Editor: Melissa Conrad Stöppler, MD

The role of hypnosis in medicine has been evolving over the last 100 years. Currently, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the United States is funding clinical trials of complementary and alternative medicine. Hypnosis in medicine has been one of the focuses of this funding effort.

Hypnosis in contemporary medicine was reviewed by James H. Stewart, M. D., of the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, (Mayo Clin. Proc 105; 80 (4): 511-524). In this review, Dr. Stewart highlighted basic concepts of hypnosis and reviewed the results of many clinical trials of hypnosis in treating a variety of medical conditions.

Dr. Stewart noted that hypnosis does not involve a process of simply following instructions. Rather, it is an actual change in the perception of the brain as demonstrated by brain tests while people are undergoing hypnosis. Studies have shown that hypnosis does not act as a placebo and is not a state of sleep.

Dr. Stewart also noted that modern hypnotism was introduced by the Austrian physician, Franz Anton Mesmer, who is said to have brought what was referred to as “animal magnetism” to France in 1778. Hypnotism came to be called “Mesmerism” and was soon discredited as fraudulent. Hypnosis as a method of psychoanalysis evolved in the 20th century. Over the past 50 years, many studies have demonstrated the potential of hypnosis as an adjunctive treatment for a variety of conditions.

In reviewing studies of hypnosis treatments by using a Medline database, Dr. Stewart found that hypnosis has had reported benefits in treating:

Hypnosis has also been reported as being successful in the treatment of pain associated with bone marrow transplantation, nausea and vomiting as a result of chemotherapy for cancer treatment, and anesthesia for liver biopsy,upper GI endoscopy, and colonoscopy.

It should be noted, as mentioned in Dr. Stewart’s review, that many of the diseases and conditions for which hypnosis has been reported to be beneficial can only be partially treated by the therapies and medicines currently available. It therefore seems that since hypnosis affords a relatively harmless treatment option, its use as a complementary treatment should be further explored by doctors and other health care providers.
