An Alternative Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis
Can medical hypnotherapy be used as an alternative treatment for Multiple Sclerosis? What would this therapy be treating exactly?
When I began to take interest in using hypnotherapy and neurolinguistic programming (NLP) in the field of medical hypnotherapy as an alternative treatment for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in early 2013, I found very little research on using these modalities with MS. What little research I did find was mainly focused on pain management alone. Since then I have been completely dedicated to researching, understanding and designing the most effective alternative treatment for multiple sclerosis using the power of hypnotherapy and NLP.
What you will find here is very different. We’ll uncover and understand why hypnotherapy and NLP can be so effective in improving symptoms of MS, along with a look at psychoneuroimmunology and epigenetics, the science behind mind-body medicine and behind the effectiveness of these two therapies.
Along with gaining an understanding of how multiple sclerosis and its symptoms are effected by emotions, stress, and anxiety as well as their relationship to how one thinks, believes and behaves; what I will refer to as the mental patterns of multiple sclerosis.
This Multiple Sclerosis Hypnotherapy Program proposes to transform these into healthy patterns and resources for positive change in both the physical and psychological symptoms of MS.
On this site you’ll be able to read some of the most significant research done using hypnosis to treat disease successfully as well as research that links mental patterns, emotional components and psychosocial factors to the onset and exacerbation of MS.
You will read about my interviews of other practitioners that used hypnotherapy and NLP as an alternative treatment for multiple sclerosis successfully and with this link, you will find detailed information on my own study with 24 volunteers diagnosed with MS that produced significant improvements in both the physical as well as psychological symptoms related to multiple sclerosis.
“(Eva) used multiple mind-body techniques including guided imagery, visualizations, meditation, individualized tapes and various NLP therapies to help me gain a new awareness.
With thoughtful questions she took me inward so I could find my own answers. As we re-examined my most painful life experiences I learned that they could be seen as wonderful learning
opportunities. The answers were there inside me, I just needed help finding the key to unlock them. Eva’s use of NLP gave me that.
I shared, I listened, I learned. Then I went home and practiced and practiced it all again.
I learned how to stare stress straight in the face and deal with it instead of pretending everything was ok. After 5 months I started to feel different, more hopeful. I felt I had a purpose, I felt strong. I felt a tremendous gratitude for all the wonderful things that had gone right in my life. MS was not so large anymore.”
The Multiple Sclerosis Hypnotherapy Program created from my research and my studies is outlined in detail. This alternative treatment for multiple sclerosis is designed to help those with MS gain insight into their own mental patterns behind their particular symptoms and tools to transform those patterns and help
This treatment is not a substitute for good western medicine, but a much needed addition to anyone’s treatment plan so that the psycho-social factors and not just the biological factors are addressed. .
