Doctors Using Hypnosis to Heal Patients as the Last Option & A Movie Written in Hypnosis Based On Past Life Regression

Happy Hypno-Tuesday! Cal is here for the latest episode of Hypnosis Etc. on


In this episode, Cal talks about a couple of intriguing hypnosis news article about the medical field attempting to heal patients through hypnosis and about a movie that was written in hypnosis.

Cal discusses the first news article about the doctors using hypnosis to treat patients when the traditional way fails. He shares his sentiment about the way medical field uses hypnosis as the last option when they are supposed to pick the least invasive way first before other things.

The second news article he read is about a movie that is based on past life regression and was written while the writer was in hypnosis.

Cal wants to know what you think about the articles. Please leave a comment below and tell us what you think.

    Hi Cal, are you still thinking about moving down to Miami? Here’s my take/perspective on why doctors are testing hypnosis in the most difficult, refractory cases.

    What a client chooses for a first intervention is based on their perception of risk/benefit and belief of what is possible. While we both know the great transformations that can happen with hypnosis, most patients I see are not open to hypnosis (though this is changing). Second, some clients due to fear would much rather remain disengaged from their emotions, than embrace and explore them – which you so eloquently address in The Secret Language of Feelings. This is such a paradigm shift and unfathomable for so many still unfortunately. I couldn’t help noticing for the Superbowl, commercials ads like McDonald’s – why not have a high calorie tasty non nutritional shake when you are stressed out? Taking a pill, beer or comfort food is far more convenient.

    So how do we change the paradigm to a more ‘safe intervention first’ and ‘more aggressive/harmful intervention for the most difficult cases’ algorithm? We need to 1) define the most surgical and accurate hypnosis techniques versus what I view as more generic hypnosis – like relaxation scripts. I think you have an excellent map with 5path so won’t go into that. 2) We need to document how these clients do compared to those who do the more aggressive/harmful interventions first approach for different disease states. Since certain diseases if untreated can have more rapid complications including death, it can be quite dangerous to just give the least harmful intervention if it hasn’t been proven to be successful. Until that evidence exists for a disease, the best philosophy is to integrate (more below). 3) I predict we will be more successful if we intervene before disease starts, and as a health care system start with the assumption health is not the
    absence of disease but the presence of joy and meaning in an individual’s life – but we are not there yet.

    Integration of hypnosis as you know is now cutting edge medicine and supported by numerous studies now. Hypnosis has been clearly proven to improve quality of life when combined with even conventional therapies. For example, hypnosis combined with cognitive behavioral therapy reduces side effects with some of the standard toxic therapies we use for cancer like radiation for breast cancer (link below). But we don’t have scientific data that we can treat breast cancer alone with hypnosis. So for now, I promote integration, and then we can do retrospective reporting of patients who integrate and show that these patients live more fulfilling lives, and perhaps prevent new diseases from occurring as well.

    Cheers and great discussion, Eugene

    If everyone sent this to their doctor/s, and/or to any and every medical person they know, we could really see the kind of change you speak of and wouldn’t it be wonderful to do it in such a grass roots way? YOU are so right on Cal! Loved this podcast and hearing your thoughts on this subject.

    See you next week at Solid Gold!

    I like the new concise format, packing info into 15 minutes. I suspect when it calls for a longer presentation you’ll let the topic expand to 20 minutes like before.

    Regarding Hypnosis in the medical profession… you are soooo right, use the least invasive technique first, hypnosis. Beyond that, as we know, hypnosis can be a wonderful complement to the ‘regular’ healing practices, so why isn’t it being suggested more often… Well, I actually think it is being suggested more and more, at least that’s been my experience through referrals. I know of other practitioners who’s entire practice is referrals from the medical community. I am certainly getting inquiries from doctors, and when my clients go back with positive results, they send more clients. Yeah. I really need to get out and do more presentations to doctors, nurses, so they think of me more often. Education and results are the key.

    I’ve stated it here before, but I think part of the solution breaking into the medical community is to use their lingo…

    I propose calling the use of hypnosis, CFB, as in “I recommend you go to the CFB Specialist”… CFB standing for critical factor bypass. So here are my new title: George Guarino,CFB Specialist . What do you think of that?

    As far as making a movie based on the work of past life regression… GREAT, go for it. I’d love to see it.

    Great topics and info as usual. G
