Re: Managing variable levels of pain

You may like to read some of the related posts I added in the fibromyalgia section with regards to the clinical applications of hypnosis and self-hypnosis as an adjunct to your ongoing pain treatment - they are equally relevant to your query here.

Best wishes, Adam.

Re: Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is very seldom available and paid for by the NHS. To date, there is one single NHS employed hypnotherapist based in the UK (in London). You are more likely to have a hypnotherapist recommended to you for you to pay for privately - which strikes me as a real shame, but is a discussion fo...

Re: How can hypnotherapy help

I can only comment on the applications of hypnosis and hypnotherapy and not EFT. I assume you refer to CFS/ME and how hypnotherapy can help with that? Within the Fibromyalgia section of this clinic, I have discussed already the ways in which hypnosis and hypnotherapy can help with pain relief, which...

Re: Light box use for energy levels?

I empathise with you regarding the effort required to actively engage in some kinds of cognitive strategies and mental imagery, it is a common response I receive from people having similar experiences of ongoing pain that you cite. When we have a real life experience to draw upon, it does tend to ma...

Re: Light box use for energy levels?

Though supported by only limited clinical trials, there are some mental imagery techniques that have been used to enhance energy levels. Of course, only in conjunction with your advised medical care. The notion is that of an 'ideo-dynamic reflex' - translated, this simply means that we often respond...

Re: Pain and fatigue

Hello there, I just responded to a similar question in a different section of this clinic, the response may be of use/interest to you: viewtopic.php?t=4495 I also added a couple of protocols that could be applied directly from home to help ease pain which are highlighted in the above thread - blog p...

Re: Alternative therapies

Just to echo that which has been stated already - fields such as my own (hypnotherapy) tend to be a useful adjunct to your formal medical care and can equip you to deal with facets of your illness better, however there is no evidence to suggest that they are curative; despite many protestations to t...

Re: Sleep disturbance

Additionally, when it comes to lulling back to sleep - evidence suggests that using mental imagery of a safe or favourite place and truly immersing yourself in it or a basic mindfulness body scan protocol can help greatly. And yes, learning to accept thoughts and sensations without resistance or fig...

Re: CFS/ME Sufferer and Sport Training

As a fellow runner (and self-confessed running geek!) I empathise with much of what you say, yet we need to be safe and measured with how you exert yourself. Evidence shows that most elite athletes have an associative running strategy that is valuable for all of us to learn from, but in particular s...
