Hypnotherapy – A Scientific Understanding of How It Helps Fight Depression

While you may have never seen a hypnotherapist before, there’s a good chance you’ve experienced hypnotherapy at a certain point in your life. Of course, it couldn’t have been as helpful as having an expert’s guidance could’ve made it. But it tells you that hypnotherapy is real.

If you’ve been going through depression and nothing has worked, it’s time to decide what to do to finally end it. It’s time to decide and see that you cannot let this continue any longer. You have to stop experiencing this feeling of helplessness because you’re not really helpless in the first place. Hypnotherapy can be the answer to the problem as long as you do it with trusted experts.

Some people are not convinced about hypnotism, but there is overwhelming proof that it is scientific. A study conducted in Germany had three groups of participants – those with high suggestibility (most easily hypnotized), average suggestibility and low suggestibility.

While under hypnotism, subjects were shown various shapes, such as triangles and circles, and were told to take note of how many times each shape appeared. Simultaneously, they were told to imagine that a wooden board was obstructing their view of the screen.

All the groups made mistakes in their counting, but the most errors came from the set with the highest suggestibility (easiest to hypnotize).

In addition, the researchers discovered some amazing brain activity patterns while the subjects were under hypnotherapy. While looking at the individuals’ neural processes, they noticed that at about the 400th millisecond after the shapes were presented, brain activity was dramatically reduced, although normally, it should have been very high. But just before this – around 200 milliseconds after the stimulus was presented – there were absolutely no visible differences.

So in simple terms, with hypnotherapy, you can change how your mind works. You can stop experiencing this feeling of doom that dominates your emotions in depression, or at the very least, you can control it. Again, with a trusted hypnotherapist, this can be done.

Besides, hypnotism isn’t even something other people should be doing to you. It happens in you all the time and probably without you realizing it. Have you taken a long drive where you suddenly realize you remember virtually nothing of the last five miles? That’s just your brain auto-piloting into a hypnotic state as part of its regular maintenance. At the end of the day, evidence shows that hypnotism is factual and hypnotherapy is indeed an effective way of depression management or cure.
