Methylphenidate Facilitates Hypnotizability in Adults With ADHD: A Naturalistic Cohort Study.
Impaired attention may impede learning of adaptive skills in ADHD. While manipulations that reduce competition between attentional processes, including hypnosis, could boost learning, their feasibility in ADHD is unknown. Because hypnotic phenomena rely on attentional mechanisms, the authors aimed to assess whether stimulants could enhance hypnotizability in ADHD. In the current study, stimulant-naïve patients seeking treatment for ADHD-related symptoms were assessed with the Stanford Hypnotic Susceptibility Scale (SHSS) at baseline and during methylphenidate treatment. Methylphenidate dose and SHSS increase were negatively correlated with baseline SHSS scores. Upon reaching effective doses, mean SHSS scores increased significantly. All patients who had been poorly hypnotizable at baseline demonstrated moderate-to-high hypnotizability at follow-up. The data support methylphenidate enhancement of hypnotizability in ADHD, thus highlighting novel treatment approaches for this disabling disorder.

When allowed to run amok, this part of the brain will cause high levels of misery. The second part of the brain that is involved with fear helps us to react to any threats to our safety. Unfortunately, in many instances our ability to anticipate may cause...
Many people dream of living a life in which everything just seems to click. Their golf game is always under par, they attract the friends and relationships they desire, and even their finances always seem to be just as they had imagined. Others admire them. And, they feel pretty darn good about themselves. Don’t you wish that I just described you?
Mastering excellence in your life is a matter of choice and attitude. First you must believe that you can do it. Others have. Why not you? All you have to do is understand the steps and practice skills sufficiently so that you become an...
A primary challenge with helping someone lose weight through hypnosis is the fact that eating is required for survival. Also, once a certain body image is established, this becomes a pattern that is very hard to contradict. So unlike something like smoking cessation where the use of tobacco products, which are basically poisonous to human, when working with the typical weight-loss client the goal is not cessation of regulation.
Any hypnosis session for weight-loss client therefore should focus both on increasing perceptions of safety as well as establishing a new body image. Like with just...
