How Hypnotherapy Actually Works
Bispectral index monitoring during dissociative pseudo-seizure.
Severe forms of dissociation or conversion can lead to events clinically often described as pseudo-seizures. Borderline personality disorder is a clinical condition which is often accompanied by a high susceptibility for dissociation and dissociative states are characterized by memory disturbance and perceptual alterations. We report a case of a patient with a complete anaesthesia, paralysis and amnesia for about 1 h. Within this time period we measured a bispectrum EEG index called BIS. Deepest recorded BIS value was 47. The described pattern of short but deep BIS reductions is completely discongruent to the findings during physiological sleep, during general anaesthesia, but very similar (and even more pronounced) to those during self-hypnosis. This makes former assumptions plausible that hypnosis and severe forms of dissociation (or conversion) may share common aetiologies.

If you are anything like me, by the time you reached maturity there were probably numerous things in your history that you regret. These could be things that you said or did – or even failed to do.

Your relationships with others and your health can easily become victim to your inability to release the bonds that guilt place on our mind, body, and soul.
For many people, cigarette smoking began at an early age. Usually this habit starts during a person’s teen years although we have seen it start even earlier. Normally, peer pressure or the influence or the example of parents was somehow involved in the decision to smoke the first cigarette. Also, depending on a person’s age, they may have been influenced by advertising, which was legal at one time in America.
Once this “social reason” for smoking initiated the act, there are two basic reasons why the act of smoking became and addiction. First is the addictive nature of nicotine. Nicotine...
Intra-office conflicts often happen because of the way different people or groups operate mentally. Simplistically, I look at how a person’s typical use of their brain affects the way that they approach problems. This can easily be divided into feelings (i.e. limbic) and thinking (i.e. cognitive). Thus a person who takes a rather emotional approach will frequently be in conflicts with those who are thinkers. Likewise, if a thinking person attempts to reason with a feeling one, they will not connect. Of course, this does not mean that two limbic-oriented people will not have a difficulty...
