What Does Medical Hypnotherapy Treat?
MINDbasedHealing teaches medical hypnotherapy as an alternative therapy that focuses on treating 2 of the 3 factors that contribute to the onset, recurrence, and exacerbation of chronic disease – psyche and social. The other contributing factor, biology, is widely treated both in mainstream medicine with pharmacology and surgery and in alternative medicine with nutrition and lifestyle changes. These less known and less treated factors, often referred to as “stress management” is known as the “psychosocial” factors behind disease.
Treating the Psychosocial Factors Behind Disease – An Alternative Therapy
The psychosocial factors have been widely researched and both the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK as well as the National Institute of Health (NIH) in the US have established the connection of these factors to chronic disease and there is an increased interest in mind-body therapies that address these factors. Currently, however, there are few therapies dedicated to addressing them directly. This is the mission of MINDbaseHealing.
We teach our practitioners to help clients that have been diagnosed with diseases such as arthritis, lupus, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson cancer, and chronic pain. Together they discover and heal the psychosocial root causes of their illness and allow their bodies to heal naturally.
