A One Year Follow-Up of Relaxation Response Meditation as a Treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Ten of the thirteen original participants from the Relaxation Response pilot study with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) patients participated in a one year follow-up study, to determine whether the effects of Herbert Benson's Relaxation Response Meditation (RRM) on IBS symptom reduction were maintained over the year.
From pre-treatment to one-year follow-up, significant reductions were noted for the symptoms of abdominal pain (p = 0.017), diarrhea (p = 0.045), flatulence (p = 0.030), and bloating (p = 0.018). When changes were examined from the original three month follow-up point, where the initial study ended, to the one year follow-up, significant additional reductions were noted in pain (p = 0.03) and bloating (p = 0.04), which tended to be the most distressing symptoms of IBS. The study tentatively concludes that: (1) continued use of meditation is particularly effective in reducing the symptoms of pain and bloating; and (2) RRM is a beneficial treatment for IBS in the both short- and the long-term.
One of the most undisputed, but unusual, fact is that hypnosis can often be used to successfully get rid of warts. This is because warts are caused by a very specific said of human viruses. The presumption has always been that the use of hypnosis for medical applications is rather limited to only psychosomatic illnesses. However, warts are most deftly not the result of all-the-mind, psychosomatic disorders.
One of the earliest cases involving warts being removed to the use of hypnosis happened during World War II. In that case, a medical doctor used the power of suggestion to facilitate...
Just about everyone knows that speaking in public is the most common fear in the Western world. Even famous stage performers admit that performing or speaking before a large audience puts them into a panic. In fact, you would not believe the names of the popular musicians, politicians, and even top self-help figures that have admitted that they are absolutely petrified before stepping on stage. Yet, they always give a brilliant performance.
What if the speaking jitters never had to occur? What if your timid feelings never had to happen? What if you could train yourself to love...
Very early in my study of hypnotherapy I was required to focus on many issues of women's health as relates to my field. I became interested in the number of reproductive-related issues that can be affected by a woman's mental state. There are a high number of researchers who had looked into how stress affects various issues regarding a woman's health. As way too many in the medical field considered hypnosis primarily as a stress reduction tool, they were more than willing to look at the relationship between hypnosis and woman's health. Over the years there has been more interest in looking at...
