"Can Hypnotherapy work effectively for curing schizophrenia?"

Working in conjunction with the patient's medical practitioner, a Clinical Hypnotherapist (Clinical Consulting Hypnotist) can help with some of the issues. A medical referral is essential in such cases.

The patient can be assisted with many things:

  • Resolving issues with family, friends, colleagues
  • Regaining or increasing confidence 
  • Sleep improvement
  • Stress relief and management
  • Anger management
  • Emotions and Pain
  • Self-esteem
  • Determination
  • Goals
  • Hobbies and leisure activities
  • Past successes and future planning; etc.
  • Positive Outllook
  • "Parts" therapy and "energy" based therapies are also useful to heal some of the issues.

"Many people with schizophrenia continue to experience symptoms despite the use of conventional treatments. Alternative therapies such as hypnosis, in conjunction with conventional treatments, may prove beneficial to them. ...

Hypnosis is a "procedure during which a health professional or researcher suggests that a client, patient or subject experience changes in sensations, perceptions, thoughts or behaviour". Hypnosis is used by some healthcare professionals to improve symptoms for people with schizophrenia ..."

"While there is still no known cure for this severe mental illness, new medications can help alleviate many of the disease's severe symptoms with fewer side effects ..." National Women's Health Resource Center

The Poisoning of America, The Truth Behind Obesity In Our Country, By Gerald Kein, Omni Hypnosis Training Center:

"Back in the late 1800's Dr. Tinera discovered that if you remove sugar from the diet many so called mental illnesses just seem to disappear. Also, sugar seems to be the leading cause of schizophrenia. Dr. John Tinera and many others since, have stated that no one again, no one should ever undergo any type of psychotherapy without first having a five hour blood glucose test!! He has shown that many mental and physical illnesses are cured by the elimination of sugar from the patients diet."

Of course, whatever you do, always consult your medical practitioner FIRST as only he or she is fully aware about your medical conditions.
