Hypnosis-can it cure crazy?
Most of you smart folks noticed that the title is a loaded question. The answer depends on how you define “crazy” and “cure”. Certainly you’re going to need a qualified medical professional for serious mental diseases such as schizophrenia. Here we’re really talking about the other kind of crazy. Such as common phobias and neurotic behaviors.
We’ve all said “so and so” is crazy, when in reality they are just phobic or neurotic about something. It could be fear of driving, open spaces or speaking in public. Or it could be constant hand washing, nail biting or stuttering. These are the kind of conditions that hypnosis is perfect for treating.
So with that disclaimer out of the way, can hypnosis cure crazy? The answer is, yes it can! And as you’ve probably figured out, all of these conditions are habits and learned behaviors. And there is overwhelming evidence that even the hard wiring of the brain isn’t all that hard after all. For example, stroke victims that regain use of limbs, speech and other functions are clearly benefiting from the spontaneous rewiring of the brain.
All learned behaviors are the manifestation the brain re-wiring itself, creating new neural connections. What this means for personality disorders, destructive habits and dangerous behaviors is amazing. Through the power of the mind, we can rewire the brain to create positive behaviors.
It would be nice to help children with hypnosis rather than feed them powerful psychotropic drugs, which in many cases creates conditions far worse than what they were originally treated for. How many so called ADHD kids really need all those dangerous drugs?
The list of conditions successfully treated with hypnosis is huge and it’s getting bigger every year as we learn more and more about the incredible resilience and power of the mind. Hypnotherapy vs Prozac-which would you rather be addicted to?
For now if you’re suffering from the kind of crazy that afflicts all of us from time to time, try hypnosis. You will be amazed. But don’t overlook the power of hypnosis to help even deeper problems. Since I am not an MD, I can’t and won’t say more. Just do the research for yourself.
