Long before ether and other
discovered, a Scottish surgeon successfully used hypnosis on his
patients before operating on them. The result was that he
reduced the mortality rate from 75% to 5%. Unfortunately
hypnosis was replaced with drugs which worked faster (although
with far more possible serious side effects).
The Mind and Body are closely
connected and it is important that they communicate effectively
in order to achieve maximum health.
experimental studies have proved that people using hypnotherapy
to help them to overcome illnesses recover more quickly than
others using placebo or no additional traditional treatment.

reason why a person should be in pain - doctors will tell their
patients there is nothing wrong but the patient continues to

Hypnotherapist but didn't think at that time to work out for
myself why these migraines were happening.

I guess I'm a good hypnotic subject because it seemed to work
It turned out that I used a

was 6 or 7. It worked at the time - so I used that excuse
again and guess what - (be careful what you wish for).
Once the cause of my migraine
was discovered I was able to rationalize it in my own mind.
After that I experienced 2 minor migraine attacks within 3 years
(both in situations that I wanted to avoid). Since then
