Hypnosis help for the Coronavirus
This question came in an email from Julie in Toledo, who asks about hypnosis help for the Coronavirus.
“So far my family and I are healthy. I have been researching ways to boost our immune system and I found references to hypnosis. Do you know if hypnosis can help with the Coronavirus? Also, I’m wondering if you can work with my family online? We live in Toledo.
Hypnosis can alter a person’s immune function
“Julie as far as I know there is no research specifically related to hypnosis for the Coronavirus.
What the research has found is that hypnosis can alter a person’s immune function in ways that reduce susceptibility to viral infections. Studies also clearly document that hypnosis is a powerfully effective way to reduce stress and anxiety which in turn boost your immune system.
This is a stressful time for all of us. We are learning social distancing, dealing with store shelves that are empty of rice, beans, pasta and frozen vegetables and many people are experiencing financial hardship.
When faced with having to wait in line to enter a grocery store only to find that the shelves are empty – you do have a choice. You can stress out and be upset or you can use self-hypnosis and other mindfulness techniques to breathe and relax.
Hypnosis won’t fix these stressors but it can help you to be calm, relaxed, healthy and energized to better manage the stressors.
The American Psychological Association (APA) has an excellent article that I invite you to read. Again, hypnosis can help you to manage the APA recommendations.
Julie I am happy to work with you and your family online. I have been offering online hypnosis sessions worldwide to clients since 1997.
Please call me so that we can discuss your goals for you and for your family and get you scheduled for your first session.
My best wishes,
Keeping Your Distance to Stay Safe
The APA says that “spending days or weeks at home with limited resources, stimulation and social contact can take a toll on mental health.” They go on to write about fear, anxiety, depression, boredom, anger, frustration and irritability. They also note that, “If you are sick or have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, you may feel stigmatized by others who fear they will contract the illness if they interact with you.”
Here are some strategies offered by the APA on to cope with the stresses that occur during this time of uncertainty:
- Limit news consumption to reliable sources
- Create and follow a daily routine
- Stay virtually connected with others
- Maintain a healthy lifestyle
- Use psychological strategies to manage stress and stay positive
According to the APA, “Following a period of quarantine or isolation, you may feel mixed emotions, including relief and gratitude, frustration or anger towards people who worry you may infect them with the virus, or even feelings of personal growth and increased spirituality. It’s also normal to feel anxious, but if you experience symptoms of extreme stress, such as ongoing trouble sleeping, inability to carry out daily routines, or an increase in alcohol or drug use, seek help from a health-care provider.”
Hypnosis is the best psychological strategy
From my experience, hypnosis is the best psychological strategy to manage stress and stay positive.
So, protect your self by eating healthy, being physically active, limit the news coverage, stay in virtual contact with family and friends and use hypnosis.

“Instead of seeing ‘social distancing’ and travel bans as panic, try seeing them as acts of mass cooperation intended to protect the collective whole. This plan is not about individuals going into hiding. It’s a global deep breath … an agreement between humans around the planet to be still. Be still, in hopes that the biggest wave can pass without engulfing too many of the vulnerable amongst us.” ~ Dr. Lindsay Jernigan
