Your sub-conscious mind
is a powerful tool and when given the proper suggestions, will go to work to accomplish the goals you set for it. Even people
with serious illnesses can benefit from hypnosis.
Researchers at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio found
that people with cancer who used hypnosis while receiving chemotherapy felt more relaxed, better prepared for their treatment
and more positive about care than those who didn't use the technique.
Visualization and other relaxation methods
may produce significant benefits, often by helping to ease pain and lift depression. Research is continuing to determine whether

Two cases are quoted below from literature on the effectiveness
A Walk on the Beach
Heidi, thirty-five, was scheduled for a round of chemotherapy
for breast cancer. The treatment was to take place on Friday and she and her husband had tickets to fly to Hawaii on Saturday
for a week's vacation.
As is routine, she was called into the treatment center for a blood check on the Monday
before to make sure her white cell count had recovered enough from the previous treatment to allow her to qualify for the
To her shock, she was told that her white count was only about half of what it should be and she would
probably have to forego her vacation. For four days she practiced self-hypnosis intensively several times a day, concentrating
on raising her white count.
She used images of the bone marrow releasing a steady, strong flow of white cells
into her bloodstream and spreading throughout her body. She also imagined directing her breath into the bone marrow and thereby
nourishing the stem cells (that produce the white cells) so that they could grow and release more white cells.
that Friday, she went in for another blood test. Her white count had more than doubled. She was able to have the treatment
and the next day was able to walk on the beach with her husband.
The Vital Fluid
Anne was scheduled to undergo a complicated abdominal surgery to remove a cancerous tumor. Her surgeon told her
patients undergoing this procedure typically lose ten to eleven units of blood.
For several days prior to the
surgery, Carol Anne practiced a form of hypnosis in which she pictured her body going through the surgery without losing any
blood, the tissues knitting back together smoothly, no complications, and a speedy recovery.
She also imagined
the look on the surgeon's face when he realized that no blood had been lost. The day after the surgery,the surgeon came into
her room and congratulated her on how well she had come through the ordeal.
To his amazement, she had required
only one unit of blood. When she told him of her preparations, he smiled and
walked out shaking his head.
