Clearing up the myths about hypnosis and presenting scientific research documenting its efficacy, this guide explains what hypnosis is and how it can be used to treat more than 50 common health problems, including chronic pain, sleep disorders, smoking cessation, asthma, obesity, and headaches. Hypnosis works as a healing, anesthetic, and pain-management tool, providing real, measurable health benefits to patients either on its own or in conjunction with other therapies and treatments. In addition, patients who learn and practice self-hypnosis are able to reduce their healthcare costs, prevent symptom relapses, take fewer medications, and make fewer emergency room visits. This book includes information on specific health issues for which hypnosis has been proven to be effective, including issues related to pregnancy and childbirth; up-to-date studies than demonstrate the results that can be achieved, including how it can benefit children; an appendix with resources for ongoing research; and a glossary of terms.


“This book is clearly indicated for clinicians of all types: psychiatrists, psychologists and other psychotherapists, primary care physicians, nurse clinicians, and physician assistants. It is remarkable how many clinical problems may respond to hypnosis. Also, anyone suffering from overeating, smoking, pain, or rarer conditions would also benefit. Dr. Lewis has written an essential healthcare resource. There is nothing to fear with hypnosis and so much to gain.â€Â  â€â€Daniel E. Bendor, MD, assistant clinical professor, psychiatry department, Yale University School of Medicine

“A valuable resource that will enable doctors to improve their care for many different types of patients, especially those for whom traditional Western medicine has few helpful options.â€Â  â€â€Myles Spar, MD, MPH, medical director, Akasha Center for Integrative Medicine

“Beneficial not only for laypeople but also for clinicians who deal with these common health issues daily with their patients.â€Â  â€â€Nita Rastogi, MD, FACP, president, Family Internal Medicine, and assistant professor, Hershey Medical Center
