Hypnosis for symptom management in women with breast cancer: a pilot study.
Eight women who were in treatment for breast cancer (n = 4) or breast cancer survivors (n = 4), presenting with 1 or more of 4 symptoms (chronic pain, fatigue, hot flashes, and sleep difficulties), were given 4 to 5 sessions of self-hypnosis training for symptom management. Analyses revealed (a) significant pre- to posttreatment decreases in pain intensity, fatigue, and sleep problems and (b) that pain intensity continued to decrease from posttreatment to 6-month follow-up. Although there was a slight increase in fatigue severity and sleep problems from posttreatment to 6-month follow-up, the follow-up scores did not return to pretreatment levels. The findings provide initial support for using hypnosis to manage symptoms in women who are breast cancer survivors. Clinical trials evaluating hypnosis efficacy over and above other treatments are warranted.

The immune system is essentially one that identifies pathogens, which is an infectious agent (also known as germs), and reacts accordingly to eliminate the threat. The ability for the various immune system components, such...
Can the use of suggestion and imagination improve physiological healing? Controversial studies at the Harvard Medical School have left the allopathic medical community scratching their collective heads. Two separate research projects conducted by a team led by psychologist Carol Ginandes, PhD, indicated that a significant number of patients who combined guided imagery hypnosis and traditional allopathic care tended to heal significantly faster than those who followed only an allopathic regimen. Their findings mirrored similar research involving improving the immune system of sufferers of...
One of the most absurd human habits is that of the consumption of tobacco products. Of course, this includes the smoking cigarettes. As just about everything about cigarettes involves the ingestion of highly toxic materials, it makes absolutely no sense for anyone to smoke a cigarette. Yet three years people have been trained to smoke. This is not helped by the fact that the components of tobacco contain substances, such as nicotine, that are highly addictive.
Over the years I've worked with numerous people helping them to kick their cigarette smoking habit. Most of them start the habit...
