Philip Zimbardo came to a conclusion after his experiments (1971) that there is an opportunity to change a wide variety of diseases with the influence of the word. That grain, which the hypnotherapist can sow in the head, can grow into an idea. And an idea can change the life. If, for example, a person is sick with agoraphobia (fear of open space) for 12 years and can go out only after strong tranquilizers, he no longer believes in improving of his condition.
Here are a few of the settings that such patients say to themselves and other people:
- I cannot leave the house.
- I’m scared after a hypertensive crisis.
- I’m afraid to be alone.
- I’m afraid to go insane.
- I cannot go out alone.
- I’m afraid to walk along the street.
These limiting settings literally program the human brain. The setting after many repetitions becomes a program, and the program, having integrated into the processes of active consciousness, acquires the habit of responding to an external stimulus (to the open door, to the street, to the noise of people, etc.) and becomes a pattern, descending into subconscious processes. It’s really hard to change. Consciousness, which is in the active phase, feeds the neuro-chains, maintaining the status quo. Only by lulling the vigilance of active compound of consciousness, it is possible to induct such settings that the nervous system will accept them and begin to manifest them in reality.
These settings can be:
- I can easily leave the house whenever I want.
- The hypertensive crisis was only once.
- I want to improve my health, walk a lot, do physical culture.
- I can be alone.
- Sometimes I like to be alone.
- I am intelligent and quickly adequately react to the external environment.
- I can walk the streets when I want.
With repetitions (20-40 sessions) during a decreased activity of the brain, the new setting creates its own neural network, and if it is stronger than the previous one, a new algorithm is applied to the old one. The person suddenly begins to believe in the opposite.
We can say that hypnotherapy is a method of changing personal programs, patterns and settings. Each experience manifests itself physiologically as so-called neural networks. If a neural network is modulated by an emotional experience, then it attracts (reacts to) situations with similar emotions, as if gathering them in a large “cluster”. In the end, such a “cluster” does not withstand internal tension and “explodes”, manifesting the whole spectrum of disorders: from nervous breakdowns – to neuroses – to psychogenic psychoses and to severe psychosomatics.
With the help of hypnotherapy, it is possible to find these neural networks, remove emotional load from them and destroy the interconnections-the connecting links between similar events. Neural networks lose their integrity and cease to react to similar, emotionally charged events.
Hypnoprotocols are created individually and are based on personal characteristics and needs of the client.
It is worth looking into new research of quantum biology. Such researchers as Dr. Morris Maceyu (People Puzzle), Paul Goodwin (neuroscientist from Alaska Pacific University) and German oncologist Dr. Hammer came to an interesting theory. They, studying the consequences of emotions on the development of diseases, came to the conclusion that emotional traumatic experience (ETREP) has a negative emotional charge and the more it is, the more likely the development of unpleasant consequences. Massey in his book People Puzzle explains this by the fact that ETREPs of the same type (that is, the same type of neuro-chains connected in a chain or, more simply, the experience of events charged with the same accompanying emotion) increase their destructive potential over time. He even defined a term describing the process: “emotional engagement.” It is this process that unites the same type of experience.
According to quantum biology, any emotions are stored in the body. Goodwin studied this theory in detail and came to the conclusion that the stored emotions are able to create neural (functional) bonds that inhibit the passage of neurotransmitters and thereby inhibit the normal functioning of the nervous system.
It has been proven that actions aimed at removing accumulated negative emotions not only improve mental abilities, but also contribute to a significant improvement in physical health.
German oncologist Hammer confirmed this theory. After the death of his 18-year-old son, Hammer got ill with cancer. After a successful operation, he examined more than 10,000 cases of cancer patients and found that all of them without exception got ill with cancer in 1-3 years after the emotional trauma. Those of them who went to a psychotherapist or to a hypnotherapist had positive consequences, in many cases leading not only to persistent remission, but sometimes to complete recovery.
Hammer describes ETREP in this way:
You hide your emotions in yourself. You do not tell anyone how you feel. You feel that no one will understand you. You suffer inside, but do not show your suffering. Sometimes you can understand because of what emotions you suffer, sometimes not. But even if you determine them, you do not want to let them go, because they belong to you.
The last phrase shows that the sense of ownership of own emotions (even very negative ones) is often the cause of subconscious unwillingness to work with them. Perhaps it is somehow connected with secondary benefit. Awareness of this property leads to the conclusion “I will never be the same again and it is absolutely meaningless to try to do something, even if I suffer.” It is this belief that often precedes serious diseases, including oncology.
Hammer believed that ETREP makes the accompanying emotions concentrate in a particular part of the brain, thereby creating a phenomenon similar to a short circuit. With the initiation of ETREP in a specific area of the brain, there is an outflow, which is clearly visible with the help of a tomography.
If we take into account that almost every zone of the brain has a direct-feedback with some organ or body system, then it is not difficult to imagine the causes of disturbances there. This may be a decreased tone of the capillary system, arterial hypertension or the development of any psychosomatic disorder. And the variety of violations from person to person depends in which specific area of the brain the accompanying emotions of the series of ETREPs are concentrated. That is, it depends on the uniqueness of the traumatic experience, on the duration and intensity of it and on the degree of stress-resistance of a particular individual. In light of this, Hammer clearly demonstrated that there is a direct correspondence between the type of psychotrauma, the location of the closed loop in the brain and the location of the tumor in the body. This leads to the conclusion that if one accurately knows the characteristics of a psychotrauma and concomitant emotion, one can assume the development of the disease. Even if the disease has already developed, knowing this connection it can only be through psychotherapy to heal this disease. It was with the help of a tomograph that it became clear that when the edema in the affected area of the brain dissipates, and this happens with the help of some techniques of psychotherapy, the physiological consequence also disappears. Unfortunately, many people forget about ETREP (or displace it), and the zones of trapped emotions are identified by neurologists as a long-standing stroke. In other words, when a person experiences ETREP, trapped emotions begin to create a short circuit in a specific area of the brain, similar to a mini stroke. The brain sends the distorted information to that part of the body with which it is connected. Here we can observe deterioration in blood circulation, lowering of cell nutrition and lowered toxin output. This area of the body begins to suffer. The rate of development of the disease directly depends on the emotional strength of ETREP.
Speaking about oncology, it is important to understand that the immune system does not recognize cancer cells because of brain trauma and that is why the key treatment for cancer patients is psychotherapy, not surgery or radiation, until the damaged brain region stops sending distorted signals in this area of the body. According to Hammer`s opinion, only 3% of tumors are subject to surgery. However, it was proved that, even in cases of complete surgical removal of the tumor, the return of the disease occurred in cases of reliving of ETREPs. In these situations, the help came from a protocol of regressive hypnotherapy, especially with the help of a method known as Time Line Therapy. This method ensured a return to the root (the very first) situation of ETREP and the removal of the emotional charge from it. It was shown that the main ETREP, which was the trigger for oncology, was usually initiated 1-3 years before the onset of the disease, although there is every reason to think that the specific experience of children’s psychotraumas paved the way for this predisposition. Such an experience could be insignificant, from the point of view of an adult individual. Therefore, we do not particularly remember, for example, either the death of a pet or the leaving of one of the parents from the family. Predisposition to such diseases most likely depends on the specific changes that the ETREP creates, from personal history, from epigenetics (emotional experience of ancestors), that is, from the experience to which ETREP can join.
Now we can consider the spread of metastases in oncology. The traditional theory speaks of the spread of cancer cells through the blood and / or lymph to other parts of the body, where the growth of new tumors begins. However, having carefully studied the theory of development of oncology, you can be surprised to find that none of the oncologists could initiate the process of metastasis in laboratory studies on animals. According to Hammer, the cause of metastasis is in fear and in those settings that both doctors and other people create in the patient. When a person hears that his diagnosis is cancer, the horror and fatality of his position is infused into him. There is a new ETREP – an emotionally traumatic experience that begins to react to the setting: “My body is working against me. I am collapsing, I am dying … “- and the body responds. Hence, the question here is not in the metastasis of cancer, but in the spread of the effect of ETREPs on the physiology of the organism.
Instead of quietly and slowly dying, come to emotional relief, rewrite your subconscious programs and become another, more viable person.
If we talk about another type of disease requiring surgical intervention, for example the removal of the thyroid gland or gall bladder, or reproductive organs – another type of ETREP is possible, which triggered the process. Another type of ETREP is another kind of impact on some area of the body, with other consequences.
Now, let’s talk for example, about the adrenal-sympathetic crisis, one of the most violent types of panic attacks. Because of the constant stress factors, occurring mainly in childhood, gradual accumulation of the same type of ETREPs occurs. One serious provocation is enough – severe fright, violence, etc. – for the sympathetic department of the autonomic nervous system to be activated and it can’t go back to normal, being in constant arousal. It is known that we use the sympathetic nervous system for physical activity and for mental work. Parasympathetic nervous system is responsible for rest. Usually, in a healthy person they are followed by cycles: work – rest – work – rest. But in this case the sympathetic department remains on. A person begins to feel an increased palpitation, sweating of hands, pressure jumps and other signs of increased excitement. It is difficult for such a person to fall asleep. Sleep is superficial, anxious. Sympathy remains active. This, in turn, affects the walls of the capillaries, which in turn affects the passage of blood flow through them. Now we see an increase in the number of symptoms associated with the dystonia of the capillary walls. This is the vegetative-vascular dystonia.
If we are able to relieve emotional stress of the person, especially from the primary ETREP, then this again involves the parasympathetic department of the nervous system, which itself restores the natural cycle. This requires a sufficient number of repetitions: from 30 to 40 sessions of emotional discharge. The person begins to feel relaxed, more calm.
If the disease or symptoms last more than 9 months, the patient may experience a paradoxical reaction to exacerbation during hypnotherapy. He may get aggravated symptoms, pain, the headache, there may be pressure jumps, swelling in the legs and other temporary dysfunctions of various organs. In this case, we recommend supporting therapy with bioactive organic substances. They, as a rule, remove all unpleasant sensations. However, it is important to understand that all these temporary symptoms indicate that the healing process has begun.
Here’s a separate case of oncology:
A patient with bladder cancer agreed to a surgical procedure. He was operated twice and after a while the symptoms of cancer resumed. The oncologist explained this by saying that the surgeon left some part of the tumor in the patient’s body. the patient decided to have alternative treatment with the therapist. After 27 sessions of the Time Line Therapy he waited 6 weeks and passed medical examination. All signs of a tumor disappeared. Having visited the oncologist, he heard that most likely that the patient had no cancer at all and the diagnosis was erroneous. Then the patient asked why he had had an operation?
Even in the light of the latest research, stereotypes of opinions of traditional oncologists, and general doctors are all the same. They do not believe in alternative methods of treatment and in every possible way dissuade their patients, although human experience says not in their favor. Many oncologists, for example, say that all cases of curing cancer with Time Lines Therapy were cases when patients simply made their symptoms of cancer up and in fact they were ill with something else. Although this does not explain the traditional diagnosis with which they first visited oncologists. At present, there are already hundreds of cases of successful treatment of cancer patients (some with a predictable fatal outcome) with Time-Line therapy and other psychotechnics used in hypnotherapy.
At the present time, at the University of Calgary (Department of Medicine), after scientific research, the Time-Line therapy methods are officially taught to future doctors, with specialization in the course of oncology. This method is also introduced into the training program of several other medical colleges in the United States.
In all cultures over the centuries, techniques have been developed that allowed this. But, unfortunately, modern man is torn out from his roots. And only at the end of the 20th century these techniques began to receive their new development. Their spectrum is wide. You can remember: autogenic training, rebuffing, hypnosis, meditation, Aliyev Key method, Sedona method, body-oriented therapy, light-sound brain training, Time Line Therapy, EMDR, EMI. But, unfortunately, not many of them can be used by wide layers of the population in the modern world with these rabid rates of life. Even our traditional Russian bath gradually loses its popularity among the masses.
From the simple methods of cancer prevention (and other diseases) that are easy to learn and accessible for everyone, we can mark: Aliev’s key method (several books were published), Medvin’s Active Trance State method, Sedona method. From the technical methods, we can certainly mark the Russian bath. And for absolutely lazy or too busy (but not exactly poor) methods of electrocranial brain stimulation (LENAR Castrubin devices and foreign CES devices) and light-sound training of the brain (only foreign devices – AVS, BWS, mind machines).
