MINDbasedHealing trains practitioners of hypnosis and neurolinguistic programming (NLP) in medical hypnotherapy for chronic disease as well as educates the public about this modality.
The training teaches practitioners how to help heal physical chronic diseases, such as cancer, autoimmune disorders, chronic pain, and Parkinson's, by working directly with the influence of the psyche (i.e. stress, challenging emotions, personality, beliefs, and unresolved past events) on disease and health.
In research, addressing the influence of the psyche, stress and emotions in disease is referred to as working with the "psychosocial or psychobiological factors" underlying disease.
Psychoneuroimmunology, one of the main sciences that studies this influence, demonstrates that any alterations in the psyche, both positive and negative, directly influences the health of the body.
Modern medicine does not address the direct influence of our mind on our health and on the formation of
disease. Instead it has focused on effective ways of addressing the physical changes created by disease. Its goals have been on managing and eliminating these physical changes, known as symptoms, through medicine and surgery.
This amazing ability to physically alter a symptom, however, does not solve why they appear in the first place. Treating the physical symptom does not solve the underlying cause of why the body becomes ill. Unfortunately, if there is an underlying cause for the symptom and the symptom is eliminated rather than understood and directly addressed; the symptom will continue to reappear or the body will produce yet another symptom in a different location.
Medical hypnotherapy is not an alternative to modern medicine but a complementary modality that works alongside the treatment of the physical factors of disease. It directly addresses the underlying psychological and social factors behind the onset and progression of chronic disease. This model, incorporating the psychosocial to the standard biological model of treatment, is referred to in health psychology as the biopsychosocial model of health and healing.
MINDbasedHealing mission is to develop effective treatments of stress and emotions, the underlying psychosocial factors behind chronic disease, and, ultimately, bring the mind back into health care. MINDbasedHealing's goal is to have our practitioners be in the forefront of psychosocial treatment research and breakthroughs. The need to stop excluding the psychological metrics in health is becoming clearer and clearer.
The mind, including inner stressors and emotions, is too powerful of an influence, both in the creation and the final outcome of chronic disease, to not be included in treatment. MINDbasedHealing's goal is to train practitioners in advanced modalities of medical hypnotherapy to effectively address and harness that influence and educate the public to include this modality in their healing.
