A number of physical problems doctor Richard first time in the medical director at the first sign center for comprehensive medicine right here in new York and -- you say.
-- your patients have used hypnosis and look capacity.
I recommend hypnosis and I've actually used hypnosis for my patience.
There was a study that just came out last week and it was published in the Scandinavian journal gastroenterology.
What they found was that patients that were put under hypnosis had a 40%.
In the number of cases of individuals who suffered with irritable bowel syndrome.
-- that was important not only for that study but another study which showed seven years later 85% of those patients.
Also had a reduction instance sometimes I use it for people who have asthma -- -- dealing with drug addiction smoking.
Problems and pain problem that you're not hannitizing us right now right you know I -- not seeing that happening again you don't do hypnosis yourself you do you -- your patience to it as specialist is that how.
A patient of -- -- we get hypnotized.
Well I do about I've actually been trained in hypnosis and I've also.
Recommended my patients go to.
Certified hip no therapist there is a problem.
-- hypnosis at this point is not a certified specialty.
So people need to be careful about where they go for these particular treatments is why I recommend that most patients go to physicians who've been trained.
So what is the difference between say positive.
Visualization and our meditation and and had no access.
Well the first stage of hypnosis is really the induction phase and that's the place where.
We give people information that helps them to relax -- generally put them in a -- state of mind.

About 85% of the population go into a trance 15% can go into a deep trance.
15% -- resistant.
And so even though some people are resistant they still get the benefits of hypnosis -- -- let's say it works for apart when your patients how Long Will it work how Long Will it affect their behavior.
Well it in in this particular study I mentioned it had a significant -- seven years after the treatment was stopped so.
People go into a specific.
A protocol -- 96 to eight treatments.
And then what we'll do is we'll monitor them and if they need additional what tune ups will put them in for a tuneup.
It's I think one of the things that's so interesting about hypnosis is now we actually have the research that showing that it works.
In pet scans and MRI is that actually look at hypnosis we've been able to look at the right and left side of the brain and what we find.
Is that people under hypnosis are fully aware not only of what they're doing it's not that they are not aware they're fully aware.
But they're able to activate parts of their brain that would not be activated.
If they would just to visualize it interesting to see the list the Wall Street Journal and a list of things -- hypnosis can -- from phobia as to smoking to weight loss and dental work.

Not at this point but you know again if you go it as part of a traditional office visit when your doctor's examining unit value -- you.
Many times that can be.
Part of what the treatment program is so this is something that's very effective it's going to be very cost effective and I have a feeling that this is gonna become a very important part.
Of our standard medical care particularly when we know we don't have to use medications and we don't have to use treatments of like you know -- -- which can be very talks.
I'm very attractive for that reason but be careful as you mentioned about the credentials there's nothing standardized for states he really have to do your research before you just launch and absolutely hypnotized -- RE dot nice to see you again back thank you very much very -- you.
Human mind is very powerful thing isn't it.
