Andrew Weil, Steven Gurgevich – Heal Yourself With Medical Hypnosis
Major medical journals are finally beginning to recognize hypnosis as a legitimate clinical tool, citing proof positive that it can help ease chronic pain, lessen the side effects of chemotherapy, counteract anxiety and sleep disorders, and more. On Heal Yourself with Medical Hypnosis, Dr. Andrew Weil joins Dr. Steven Gurgevich, a leading expert in mind-body medicine, to offer listeners a session on how to use this amazing tool for personal healing.
On Part One, Dr. Weil discusses the physiological mechanisms behind the mind-body connection, while Dr. Gurgevich demystifies the practice of hypnosis through a concise account of its history and important case studies. On Part Two, Dr. Gurgevich introduces listeners to four trance induction methods, including trance deepening and a full session of self-healing with hypnosis. “No condition is out of bounds when it comes to the effective use of hypnotherapy,” says Dr. Weil. With Heal Yourself with Medical Hypnosis, now listeners can discover this highly effective way to use the power of the mind for optimum health and well-being.
Dr. Andrew Weil’s intellectual and verbal precision is put to good use in this audio collaboration with another mind-body expert. The subject is altered mind states (typically, hypnosis) within which our consciousness is changed and we are capable of influencing our physiology and even curing medical problems. The medical and historical contexts offered by the authors introduce these alternative methods seamlessly and make them seem conventional. This is the effectiveness of these authors–to offer countercultural approaches to personal change that are described so clearly that they seem intuitive and inviting. With clear definitions and a lesson on four hypnosis techniques, this is one of the most useful guides ever to this powerful healing approach.
