Ok, I changed the title to this post because no one read it when it said hypnotherapy in the title, but I think it's worth reading. You can think it's hoaky, but this article is from
US NEWS AND WORLD REPORT
Basic concept: hypnotherapy alters your thought patterns, which in turn alters the chemicals and hormones that your body produces, which in turn actually helps the physical manifestations of GI diseases.
It sounds promising, but somewhat "hoaky" as well. I just thought it was an interesting article since I can count at least 5 current posts that mention the mind/body connection.
Any thoughts or experiences with this?
