Has anyone ever tried this as an alternative to taking medication?
My Doctor said to me it was worth a try to relieve pain and I've also read it can help relieve stress as well.
I'm seriously thinking of giving it a try once I find a qualified person.

I remember people being hypnotized to give up smoking. One guy in particular was off cigarettes for 15-20 years until he got married again. If I were you I'd ask my Doctor to recommend someone.

Good Luck!

Gil I did ask the Dr. and he told me to look up British Society of Medical - Dental Hypnosis on the internet but there's so many choices. I've left my daughter to look some of them up for me and I now have a telephone number so I will be enquiring soon.
Nothing ventured nothing gained!!

That must have been some woman he married Silenced Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

My problem will be to decided which one of my problems would I ask the hypnotist to sort out first--or maybe she would give a discount for sorting them out all in one go? Think Think Think Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I did phone the hynotherapist and I will be going but not until the middle of October but she had a long talk with me on the phone and its really self-hypnosis they teach you and she talked me through one on how to relieve pain and I believe it can work she also told me that there are a number of CD's available and told me to search the internet too. I found this one

This is a link that gives you sample of what a cd contains.
I also have a book by Paul McKenna and it has a CD with it and i've always been a bit apprehensive about trying it. So I decided I listen to it last night- at least I tried to listen to it. You have to sit somewhere where its quiet and peaceful -
First attempt,I just started the CD then
!. A train came along and normally I dont hear them but because I was sitting quietly it sounded so LOUD (A railway line is quite near my house)
2. Started tape again but couldnt make out what was being said - hearing aids in their box not in my ears!!
3. Thought for a while then put in my hearing aids --fine until my 2 love birds decided to have a fight. This noise was unbelievable!
4.Another go- this time it was the dogs I thought they were sleeping but suddenly they started to bark for no reason whatsoever.???
I was beginning to think I wasnt meant to listen to this CD.
5. Decided I would go to bed and use the CD player I have next to my bed.
Got everything set up, finished my cup of coffee and got settled down to get ready to switch on the player and listen to the CD.
but next thing I knew it was morning - and I HADN'T switched on the cd player and never heard the cd
but it was the best sleep I'd had in ages
Applause Applause Applause Could it be Mind over Matter!!!

I'm still trying the self hypnosis cd (the one I have is to help you to eat properly. e.g. one of the things it does say just imagine you are longing for a lovely bite of your favourite chocolate and just as you are about to put it into your mouth suddenly you see lots of maggots creeping out from the chocolate Yugh!!-- so next time you are tempted to snack with eating chocolate this comes back into your mind. Unbelievable but it did work twice for me.

Oh emmy..

I will never be able to look at chocolate the same way again! But regardless, I could NEVER give that up - maggots or no maggots.

Well I'm still using my Paul McKenna CD's and they are working far better that all the medication I've had in the past.
Today I had a visit to the Dr and I've been allowed to come off another set of pills and told him I had bought some more of the Paul McKennas CD's and both the Dr and the Pharmacist believes that to be a better way of coping with stress.
I'm still not 'out of the woods' yet though because I now have an infection in my legs (one Dr I saw said says its cellulitis) not sure if this was caused by me bumping my leg into my magazine rack and giving myself a lovely bruise (but the skin wasnt broken) and its odd its on both legs or if this is some other side effect of other new medication I'm on. So Wednesday I've to go and have some more blood tests and I'm on antibiotics now.
But at least I'm still smiling although by night time I've got two feet that resemble balloons ( could perhaps be able to float soon) a great excuse to sit down with my feet up -- not all the time though!!

PS Nuccia I've given away all my chocolates etc so someone else can get the 'maggots' Dancing Whistle Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Emmy, my mom had cellulitis. It is a nasty thing to have for sure.

I'm so happy to hear you've gone off another set of pills. Medications are so hard on our liver even over the counter meds such as aspirin.

Well tomorrow I go back to the Dr for the blood test but tonight the inflamation in my legs seems to be spreading so tomorrow I think I'd be best to ask to speak to the Dr when I'm there but what you want to bet It will be like the toothache disppearing when you go to the dentist I bet the rash will have cooled down by then--I really do hope it has, and oooohhh tomorrow it's forecast heavy snow here again and I hate driving when its like that..You would think that whoever creates the weather should know when I must go out and would save the snowfall until the next day at least!!!
Maybe if I keep my fingers crossed the snow will wait until Thursday Think Think Think

Okay Emmy, so what did the doctor say??????????????

Hey, it's snowing like crazy here too and I've got to go out in a few hours to work. Well, I think it stopped but they are predicting some heavy snow fall for the east coast. We got our fair share last night.

We Ohioans are so desperate for a fancy name label that we call ourselves the "North Coast."
