     I have fibromyalgia-a painful, chronic disease. I was wondering if hypnosis had been tried for chronic pain yet, and what the results were.




      Hypnosis can work very effectively with medical issues.  It is important to have checked out the physical problem with a doctor first; and best to get a referral from your doctor to give to the hypnotherapist. This is because “pain” can relate to physical problems, and should not be removed without making sure there is no medical issue to be dealt with before hypnotic processes are used.

      Hypnosis works with the subconscious mind, which has, as one of its jobs, keeping the body "running."  It makes sense, therefore, that suggestions can be made, when hypnotized, to help the body do its job better, and to unblock anything preventing its proper functioning and healing.  Get a good hypnotherapist who works with the body's healing, and knows also how to get to the source of problems.


     Hypnosis can be very effective for controlling pain, and even doing away with it.  Hypnosis can be used to help you cope with it, and to release your own body's natural healing abilities. Hypnotic methods help relieve you of unnecessary guilt, handle the stress of the condition, and to be patient with yourself in making any necessary practical life changes.

     Locate a hypnotherapist who works with medical issues, is a pain specialist, and knows enough about the other aspects of this condition to be helpful to you.  


     By the way, I also have fibromyalgia.  I used to have it VERY severely, and now have it well under control with only occasional problems.  Along with hypnosis, I have used positive affirmations, gentle yoga, and a homeopathic/naturopathic doctor's care.  All have been very helpful to me.
