Is Hypnosis Effective?

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

With hypnosis often portrayed in the media as a novelty act, many people who could be helped using hypnosis often ask the question, is hypnosis effective?

Hypnosis is often overlooked and footnoted in the medical literature, but that is quickly changing.  Here’s a recent news report from Fox News profiling how effective hypnosis can be when used for medical purposes.

You can call and arrange an evaluation with Marc Carlin, The NYC Hypnotist and author of the book, Sheila Granger’s Virtual Gastric Band Workbook, The Solution To The Worldwide Obesity Epidemic, and find out whether hypnosis is right for you.

April Is Irritable Bowel Syndrome Awareness Month - IBS Awareness Month

Monday, April 4th, 2011

April has been declared IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome Awareness Month by the International Foundation of Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders.

Here’s a little bit about IBS because so many people have asked, “what is IBS?” IBS is a disorder who’s symptoms are abdominal pain, discomfort, and changing bowel habits. These changes can include chronic or recurrent diarrhea, constipation, or both. They can manifest as mixed or in alternate responses. It’s a very common disorder, affecting between 10-15 % of the population in the US.

One of the most effective methods to treat Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or IBS is the use of hypnotism, or hypnotherapy. Using hypnosis and mental imagery clients have reported sustainable and repeated relief from the symptoms of this disorder. In fact, the NHS, which is the governing body overseeing the health care system in the UK, has been referring their citizens to hypnotherapy as a means to treat this problem.

If you would like some further information on how you can help treat your IBS with hypnosis you can call me at 212 223-1832. All medical issues do require a doctors referral.

Hypnosis Used For Hot Flash Relief

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

I found this article really interesting. I came across it in the Waco Tribune. It details a recent study with cancer patients, and how the use of remedial hypnosis was able to lessen the effects of hot flashes experienced by women after cancer surgery by a whopping 68%. This is very dramatic results and it only used an extremely simple form of mental imagery to accomplish this result. Imagine if they used the advanced techniques that I use to help my clients stop smoking or lose weight! They would probably eliminate the hot flashes altogether!

I’m posting an excerpt from that article and linking to where you can read the rest of it here:

New Baylor research looking at treating hot flashes with hypnosis

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

By Tim Woods

Tribune-Herald staff writer

Attention breast cancer survivors and post-menopausal women: Help for hot flashes may be on the way — without the use of medicine or hormone therapy.

Gary Elkins, Baylor University psychology and neuroscience professor, is beginning a study of 180 post-menopausal women to study the effects of hypnotic relaxation therapy for women who experience hot flashes. The research is courtesy of a $2.6 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to expand on a previous study.

Elkins’ earlier study, recently published in The Journal of Clinical Oncology, compared 26 breast cancer survivors who received the therapy with 25 breast cancer survivors who did not. Women receiving hypnosis reported a 68 percent decrease in hot flashes.
