Today is most assuredly the best time to be alive, to research and to discover the wonders of our mind and universe. The sciences of the mind, genetics and epigenetics, neuroscience and all their sub-categories are developing as never before in documented human history. Here is a collection of materials from prestigious medical and scientific journals, from universities and medical centres of excellence, that speak about the benefits of using hypnosis and hypnotherapy in a wide range of domains from changing negative mental patterns to alleviating physical pain including the use of hypnosis in surgery.
As a matter of fact, the number of hospitals and medical centres that have started using hypnosis with local anaesthesia, as a valuable alternative to traditional general anaesthesia are on the rise.
- Dr. Marie Elisabeth Faymonville, M.D, Ph.D, a leading name in the field of anaesthesiology has already used hypnosis in more than 1.800 surgical interventions since 1992 in UHC Liége, Belgium.
- Dr. Aurore Marcou, research team leader in the Institue Curie in Paris, conducted a study over 150 cancer surgeries performed under hypnosis between 2011- 2017.
- The connection between memory and sleep is a huge field of research for neuroscientists nowadays. In this respect, dr. Ken Paller in the National Science Foundation (USA) has already performed experiments that relate information retention during sleep.
- Deep brain surgery using hypnosis has already been performed, the first one in a hospital in Jena, Germany, performed by Dr. Rupert Reichart.
- In August 2015, a meeting among researchers at the International Society of Hypnosis and Confédération Francophone d’hypnose et Thérapies Bréves, just before the International Congress of Hypnosis in Paris, France produced the following article that clearly highlights that hyypnosis treatments have demonstrated efficacy for a number of physical conditions.
- Hypnotherapy definitely reduces physical pain significantly.
- Hypnosis shows great promise as an empirically supported therapy for reducing procedure related-pain in children and adolescents.
- Neuroscience has already incorporated hypnosis in its research.
