At the word "hypnotist" for most there is an image or ugolnoglazogo, handsome in a turban and a cloak on the stage, or Gypsies, which you did not realizing, you give money, jewelry, things … In fact, hypnosis — it is simply a method of psychotherapeutic treatment of many diseases. As a scientific discipline, it started about 200 years ago. By the way, psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud also "grown" out of hypnosis, and the author of the doctrine of the unconscious began as a not too successful hypnotist. So what exactly is hypnosis today and what are its healing capabilities?
The man — like chicken
Our body has three main modes: sleep, wake, and special states of consciousness (OSS), which is linked and hypnosis. Imagine OSS as a room where every wall — at the door. Outside, above each door hangs a sign: one says "hypnosis", on the other — "trans", on the third — "meditation", the fourth — "autogenous dive." A person is free to open any door and hold it, for example, meditating or being hypnotized, but in the end it will still be all in the same room — in a special state of consciousness.
All the techniques of hypnosis based on the ancient instinct of self-preservation of animal or human. How to hypnotize a chicken? She lay on her side and forced to lie down for a while in this unnatural position. It is important that the chicken could not move, that is, to implement their solutions in physical activity. For a bird it's a bad, dead-end situation, and "escape" from it, it goes into a different mode of consciousness of his chicken — "freezes". All rights hypnosis techniques focus is on the same thing — make him lose control over decision-making and their movements. And if a person agrees with the fact that he inspired, he seemed "freezes" like a chicken, and focus only on the words hypnotist. Furthermore, this state is used to achieve therapeutic, educational and concert purposes.
"During hypnosis a person does not lose control of themselves as, say, in anesthesia, and thus force him to do something he did not do in the waking state, it is impossible — says a leading researcher at the Institute of Psychiatry, MD Rashid fatness. — If someone came to the hypnotist atheist and devout believers left, it's a bad job, is incompatible with the principles of psychotherapy and hypnotherapy in particular. We have no right to correct outlook and morals patient. The purpose of hypnotherapy — to help solve personal problems, problems of his body, but no more than that. "
"Our research — continues Rashid Dzhaudatovich — have shown that the hypnotic state then generates gipnogenny stress, similar to biological stress. And there are two kinds of stress: eustress — revitalizing and distress — destructive. A professional therapist in hypnosis uses only the mechanisms of eustress, but amateur …
Trance is widely used psychics and healers, sometimes with no medical or psychological education, and therefore, they do not take into account the biological characteristics of this condition. The main rule of Hypnotherapy — an inverse association between the hypnotist and hypnotized. If the link is broken, there are sometimes irreversible problem. This was confirmed by extensive negative results telepsihoterapii in the USSR and telegipnopedii (training in hypnosis) in Bulgaria, which appeared in the frequent deterioration of physical and mental health of those who watched these sessions. Because no feedback was not a qualitative removal of hypnosis viewers, causing distress to the person himself. Widely known case in which a girl, to feel during a session telepsihoterapii in the sea with dolphins, and could not get back to real life and came to a psychiatric hospital. Also, if someone has a problem with some organs (heart, lungs, kidneys), post-hypnotic beats distress in the first place for them. So what if there was a need in the hypnotic treatment, take it to a professional therapist, hypnotist. "
What can he
The very same method of hypnosis is able to bring in experienced hands to get rid of so many suffering. The fact that with the help of hypnosis you can get rid of smoking and alcohol abuse, and has long been known to many. But hypnosis effective in the treatment of various pain including phantom (when pain amputated limb). Numerous studies have shown that hypnosis, as OSS has been active in the body self-regulation has a positive effect on the metabolism of cholesterol, bilirubin, activates protein metabolism, strengthens the body's immune. This means that the medicine used in the treatment of hypnosis can facilitate or any state, except that the acute infection and acute mental disorders.
Hypnotherapy is useful in the treatment of gastric ulcers, hypertension, skin diseases (neurodermatitis, eczema, psoriasis), and even asthma. In the latter case, hormone therapy is not applicable because the hormones are blocking the adrenal glands and, therefore, ceases to operate the biological component of hypnosis — the mechanism of the positive eustress. Hypnosis is useful as a means to relieve depression in cancer patients, and tolerability of some medications can also be improved by using hypnotic suggestion by the positive emotional attitude of man.
"Of course, this does not mean that you should abandon all medicine in favor of hypnotherapy — sums Rashid Tukaev. — Hypnosis cures no better than other therapies, but often worse. Its advantage is that the treatment eliminated the side effects that accompany the medication. "
Most important in the treatment of hypnosis — it is the desire of the person to be hypnotized. Just then a professional can help him develop a condition to overcome fear and prejudice. The force will hypnotist and his patient almost no role. The problem of exposure to hypnosis (hypnoability) — this is the problem of human contact and trust in the hypnotist. In the end, hypnotherapy — this is just one of the methods of psychotherapy, where the treatment effect is more than half full depends on people's perceptions of what can and what can not be done using mental impact. Because of the fact that 98% of people are able to go into a hypnotic state, does not mean that they all help and hypnotherapy can help the same.
