“At the age of 16 I was diagnosed with a rare esophageal condition known as Achalasia. It is a motility disorder of the esophagus, whereby the nerves become damaged and the muscles are unable to push food or liquids down towards the stomach. For over half a year the doctor’s were stumped by my condition and I lost nearly 50 pounds. During that time I was depressed and in severe pain from esophageal spasms.
While waiting for an answer to my peculiar problem, I began taking my disease into my own hands and trying out self-hypnosis. What I realized was that I had already been using different forms of hypnosis for pain control such as time distortion, reframing, and dissociation, but in a very primitive and sporadic way. Once I put what I was reading to the test I experienced amazing results that allowed me to get through the suffering before a surgery was performed.
It’s been years eight years since my surgery and although it was a success, I experience chronic pain on a daily basis and still have issues related to swallowing. There is no alternative to conventional medical treatment, but there is a way for us to cope with our pain. It is my belief that pain is sometimes necessary, but suffering is not. Hypnosis has allowed me to live a rich and happy life without having to rely on pain medications and that is why I devoted my career to the craft.”
