Study: Hypnosis Works to Treat Hospitalized Smokers - Health News | Current Health News | Medical News -

Last weekend my friend Ron ended up in the hospital for an emergency colonoscopy.  His doctor was very concerned because Ron has a "heart condition" and he had found traces of blood in his stool.  And yet Ron continued to smoke despite the health risks.   After the fact Ron was able to smile and say that this hospitalization was the catalyst that got him to finally quit smoking.  He admits that while in the hospital it was easy not to smoke since it was prohibited and he was feeling so poorly.  Ron was concerned that once he returned home he would return to the habit.  Upon discharge from the hospital, Ron had a smoking cessation hypnosis session with me to reinforce his SUCCESS. 

Here is what Ron said following the hypnosis session:
"I feel relaxed and smoke-free. I couldn't stand the smell of smoke in my car or house anymore.  Eugenia makes you feel very relaxed and comfortable while in her care and she conducts herself in a very professional manner.  Hypnosis really assists with managing cravings, it's like a fleeting thought.  Nothing that I can't handle."

This is what Faysal Hasan MD. @ North Shore Medical Center said about hypnosis: “Hypnotherapy appears to be quite effective and a good modality to incorporate into a smoking cessation program after hospital discharge.”
