Living With Autoimmune Disease, by Roger Moore is this weeks featured article, and the newest article in the Hypnosis Health Info Article Library. I was honored to be asked by the International Association of Counselors and Therapists (IACT) for an interview for their monthly Ask The Professional.
Living With Autoimmune Disease
Never give up and remember that it is never too late. For the past 18 months I have been working with a woman who is now 74. She has severe rheumatoid arthritis in her back. When we started, she was on lots of pain meds which had their own negative side effects. She leads a very active lifestyle taking care of her large beachfront home and is always on the go. The pain and medications were limiting what she could do. For several months now I have seen her once a month (she considers it to be her mental massage). This last week when she was in and I asked about her overall level of discomfort she scoffed and said “thanks to you, the pain is irrelevant”. She went on to talk about the contractors she is working with to rebuild her steps down to her beach.
In the past few months I have witnessed this client, my own Mom, and others go from seemingly hopeless physical situations to having an improved quality of life. They have learned self-hypnosis and other tools so that they are not dependent on me or on CDs and can use these tools to alleviate any discomfort they may experience throughout the day.
I don’t believe that I or my clients are cured of autoimmune disease. But, thanks to hypnosis, it has become irrelevant for me and isn’t holding me back from a 100 mile bike ride or wilderness backpacking in the Olympic Mountains.
I extend my sincere thanks to the International Association of Counselors and Therapists (IACT) for the privilege of this interview. I will be co-teaching with Melissa Roth a class on autoimmune disease and hypnosis at the fall Seattle Counseling and Hypnotherapy Conference. This conference is open to anyone who wishes to attend and prior hypnosis training is not required.
