CFS (ME) Hypnotherapy and Healing
Hypnotherapy comes from a combination of two Greek words ‘hypnos’ ( sleep ) and ‘therape’ (healing ). This is a misleading use of ‘hypnos’, as the state achieved in hypnotherapy is a trance state rather than sleep. Once the trance state is achieved, the healing process can start. Here, it is not magic, but waking up the immune system, that causes the healing.
Throughout history people have gone to shamans, witches, and herbal healers, in addition to doctors, for healing. Some of these were effective, some were not, it was sometimes a matter of belief. But biochemists may use the knowledge of the ancient healers in knowing which plants to imitate, in preparation of synthetic drugs. When healing is unexplained by science it is commonly referred to as miraculous. In the Bible we are told that Christ told people that it was their belief that healed them. But it is a long process for the church to declare something as a miracle.
In 1858 the young girl who was to become St Bernadette had a vision of a lady in Lourdes. The Catholic Church eventually declared that this vision was one of the Virgin Mary. Ever since then millions have visited the shrine in the hope of a miraculous healing. And miraculous healings do take place because of belief in the power of place. This creates a change in the mind set that allows the natural power of the immune system to take over and restore health.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
I refer to the above event to give an example of how the belief system can be helped by modern healers. Therapists and coaches can help people to create a healing mind set, which seems to be essential in dealing with Chronic Fatigue. The blockages to creating this mind set may be removed with the help of talking therapies, such as counselling and hypnotherapy, or meridian therapies, such as EFT and TFT. The science of nutrition may also help in creating the conditions for optimum health, and hands on therapies, such as massage will help to remove toxins.
As therapists we have got systems to help with healing in cases that scientific medicine may have difficulties with. Not only Chronic Fatigue, but also immune diseases come in here.
CFS and Hypnosis
I signed up to train as a Chrysalis Effect Practitioner this year in order to be part of a team of complimentary therapists that would help to coach people through a year of recovery from Chronic Fatigue, back into a state of health and well being. I have the resources of Counselling , Hypnotherapy and meridian therapies and can refer to other experts too in helping your recovery from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
