Self-hypnosis for multiple sclerosis
You can imagine my excitement when I first read a study by Ashley Linn, PhD that explored the experiences of persons with multiple sclerosis when self-hypnosis is applied.
Previous studies have also supported hypnosis for multiple sclerosis. Your brain and your immune system are connected. Hypnosis has been shown to therapeutically influence your immune system.

Hypnosis Benefits for Multiple Sclerosis
The benefits of using hypnosis to improve immune function are well documented. Studies show that hypnosis for MS is effective for MS-associated symptoms, including anxiety, pain, and insomnia.
Hypnosis is not a cure for MS, but it can be a way of managing changes, both physical and how you feel as a person. MS may exacerbate issues that already existed; it can also produce some of its own.
Hypnotherapy can help with fatigue management, loss of confidence, fear of being dependent, change in abilities and loss of identity, pain, sleeping problems, fear of the future, anxiety, deep relaxation and reduction of stress, urinary and bowel issues.

“After four weeks of self-hypnosis, the following changes were identified: (a) improved emotional regulation, (b) intrapersonal improvements (c) improved cognitive functioning, and (d) improved physiological state. No negative or adverse effects were reported by any of the seven participants who completed the study. Six participants reported positive changes in their journal entries. Six participants reported they were extremely likely to use hypnosis in the future and to recommend hypnosis to others. With an increased understanding of the complex impact that MS has on people, we can learn to better support, treat, and empower those with MS. QoL is subjective, yet invaluable. Based upon this initial case study inquiry, it is possible that self-hypnosis could be an effective and personalized tool for meeting the multifaceted needs of this population.” Read Exploring the experiences of persons with multiple sclerosis when self-hypnosis is applied.
