Medical Hypnosis

“The best kept secret is that hypnosis is the tool to create super learning and quick change at the subconscious mind level. People have been conditioned to not use it or they would not need the hospital. We have a self healing program inside of our subconscious mind.”

​​Bruce Lipton, author of The Biology of Belief

Your mind can make you sick! 95% of disease is caused by stress.  Faulty patterns in the subconscious can lead to unnecessary anxiety and fear that places unnecessary stress on our systems leading to physical, mental and spiritual dis-ease.  Hypnosis can help change patterns in your subconscious mind to help minimize stress.

“Almost no condition is out of bounds when it comes to the effective use of hypnotherapy.”

Dr. Andrew Weil M.D.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

A placebo-controlled study conducted in 1984 demonstrated the remarkable efficacy of hypnosis applied to IBS. Patients receiving hypnotherapy experienced significantly better results as compared to those undergoing traditional therapy and placebo pills. All the patients had shown no reductions in their symptoms from other treatments prior to the study. While the control group showed small improvements, the hypnosis group experienced dramatic decreases in their symptoms, and had no relapses 3 months after treatment.

Depression

The following is a quote taken from one my teachers.  I have personally benefitted from this in a life changing way.

“Depression is not due to a chemical imbalance, or genetic factors. Low serotonin levels are a result, not a cause, of depression. Despite the prevailing ideas for the last few decades, this is now known to be a fact. This misunderstanding is also the reason why drugs and some therapies for depression miss the point, and treat the symptoms instead of the causes.”
Mark Tyrrel, Uncommon Knowledge

Finally there is a common sense research based approach to dealing with depression.  Breaking the cycle of depression by calming the over aroused brain and allowing quality rest, the underlying causes of stress can be identified and corrected with simple self help techniques.  Looking at thinking style, level of activity, nutrition, sleep and problem solving skills.

Hypnosis can accomplish in weeks what other therapies often take years to accomplish.

Research Proves Medical Hypnosis Benefits

Hot Flashes in Postmenopausal Women

Clinical hypnosis can reduce hot flashes after menopause, Baylor study shows.

“Hypnotic relaxation therapy reduced hot flashes by as much as 80 percent, and the findings also showed participants experienced improved quality of life and a lessening of anxiety and depression.”

“The mind-body therapy study of 187 women over a five-week period measured both physical symptoms of hot flashes and women’s self-reporting of flashes. The women received weekly sessions of hypnosis by clinically trained therapists, and they also practiced self-hypnosis using audio recordings…”

“By the fourth session, hot flashes had decreased about 70 percent, and at a three-month follow-up, the decrease averaged 80 percent…”

Quantum physics tells us our thoughts are forces as in the film What the Bleep Do We Know!?

90% of our thoughts come from our subconscious minds.  No matter how much we consciously want to change them with our conscious mind we can’t.

In the trance state of hypnosis faulty patterns are rewritten as we “imagine ourselves enjoying eating healthier foods or being calm when our spouse is pushing our buttons or having a perfect golf swing.”   Like installing new software to replace faulty programs on the computer.

One of the best ways to relax with any process is to do it repeatedly.  The massive advantage of using hypnosis when you want to get comfortable with something is that you can do that something repeatedly and perfectly in your mind-so that it feels natural to you and as if you’ve already done it many times-before you do it for real.  Allowing neuroplasticity to rewire our brains.

I have been one of my own best customers, using hypnosis to help lose over 100 pounds, I no longer need the two diabetic medications, two blood pressure meds, med for GERD, med for gout, my sleep apnea has cleared up and I have weaned myself off two antidepressant meds (under Dr Supervision).

Don Ross, BA,CHT

I was diagnosed with severe fibromyalgia which consisted of years of constant and excruciating lower back pain and sharp shooting pains in my groins, thighs, shoulders, scapulas, hips, as well as other areas. Some pain would jump around, some stayed with me all day long. When Don began his hypnotherapy sessions with me through Skype, he suggested we work on my fibromyalgia pain in one session. I am happy to state that it was in that one session that Don was able to take away my constant pain. I have only a small twinge in my left scapula, which was always the worst of it, however that gets better every day. This has been my miracle.

Mildred Morabito, NY

I have had Irritable Bowel Syndrome for several years. In the last six months I haven’t slept through the night without my symptoms getting me up. After one session of Medical Hypnosis with Don I slept through the night without any symptoms.

Karen, Cornville AZ

I was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and had to undergo radiation and chemotherapy. Don offered hypnosis on a pay as you can basis, he always told me not to pay so much that I might avoid coming to save money. He truly was an awesome tool of God. I always felt so much better after seeing him.
