Is it Myth or is it Reality? According to the International Journal of Pediatric Research, "...hypnosis could have an important role as first-line option for primary monosymptomatic enuresis"...
To begin , there is very little data or research available regarding nocturnal enuresis. I personally cannot understand why this is so? I would hope parents would much rather have their child see a hypnotist rather than take medication.
Also referred to as bed-wetting or night-time incontinence, nocturnal enuresis is a common condition that causes considerable psychological distress in children and young adolescents. It is the involuntary loss of urine during sleep at least twice a in patients that are older than five years old and lasting at minimum more than three months. There is primary and secondary nocturnal enuresis. Primary occurs in clients that never achieve a period of dryness. Secondary happens after a period of dryness of at least six months. Nocturnal enuresis is also classified as mono-symptomatic or non mono-symptomatic.
Primary mono-symptomatic nocturnal enuresis (PMNE) is defined by the International Children's Continence Society as pathological bed-wetting with at least one episode per month in patients older than five years old, without any other lower urinary tract symptoms and no history of bladder dysfunction. It is a multi-factorial disease with an important genetic component. And, it is influenced by the mechanisms of the central nervous system. It's estimated that between twenty and thirty percent of PMNE patients have at minimum of one behavioral, psychological or psychiatric disorder. The condition is usually managed with behavioral modifications, psychological support and pharmacology therapy.
In an August 2021 publication, the International Journal of Pediatric Research (IJPR) stated "To date, the use of hypnosis is still underutilized for the treatment of nocturnal enuresis due to a weakness in literature evidence. Conversely, hypnosis demonstrated to be more powerful than placebo, beneficial in the treatment of some conditions (e.g. migraine headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, and anxiety), and highly effective in reducing the consumption of medications." Hmm, Not what the pharmaceutical industry wants to hear.
I know, as the IJPR believes, that hypnosis should be taken into consideration as a treatment option for patients suffering from primary mono-symptomatic nocturnal enuresis. I also know that many parents will not take their child to visit a hypnotist due to their misguided conceptions and fears of what hypnosis is really all about.
Breathe - Relax - Heal
Welcome to Lakes Region Hypnosis Center's information sharing blog
I would like to begin my blogging career (sounds funny for a 60-something to be saying) by just introducing myself and some of the services we provide. My goal is to introduce you all to me and the wonderful worlds of hypnosis and other alternative, less expensive (in the long run) healing modalities we provide and clearly work. My intention is to also educate the public through my blogging.
I am a 67 year old who refuses to retire. I have worn many hats in my many careers, one could say it took me a long time to discover what I wanted to be or do when I grew up. I will say it did take me a while though. I've been part of management team where I was responsible for a multi-million dollar communication budget in a large financial institution. I left the corporate world as a thirty something and became a healthcare worker in a county nursing home. This was a very rewarding vocation by the way, but the greedy corporate world began sticking their fingers in the proverbial pot and infesting that career with their greed and gluttony. But, that's a whole different blogging path for the politically inclined, and does not belong here. I finished my career as a political action coordinator for a national public employee union and was forced out to pasture. Yes folks, even the unions have their dark side. But, I've always wanted to help others along the way, a healer so to speak. Whether a human client or a pet client (Animal Reiki attuned), I have always been driven to open up my heart, mind and arms to those who need some assistance along the way.
I began seeking a healing path for myself and something to provide comfort to others. I entered my chrysalis stage, my transition to the more spiritual path, that of a provider of proven alternative healing modalities. I became a Reiki Master/Teacher, actually being attuned through a local Reiki Master from Gilmanton and another from the West Coast. and still felt there there was more. I began various training along the way, as a physical medium, a crystal worker, and so on and so forth. I rounded out my resume at the Thomas Institute of Hypnosis and the National Guild of Hypnotists becoming a Certified Consulting Hypnotist. And this is the "Readers Digest" version of how I got to where I am now.
Operating out of Tilton, New Hampshire, ergo the name Lakes Region Hypnosis Center; we also perform Reiki healing sessions under Peaceful Light Healing (or PLH). PLH was my first organization and is now a part of our Lakes Region Hypnosis Center operation. Effectively combining both powerful tools (Hypnosis & Reiki) and we have created a healing modality second to none and without OPIODS. Healing others is a love and passion for us. Continuous education in the art of hypnosis on a regular basis, as well as consuming mandatory reading material is part of our modus operandi and in our operations manual. We also teach healing techniques at various metaphysical facilities and institutions. Sharing information at community events and local libraries, schools, and other public and private venues is always on our agenda. So please, continue to watch this website for updated events. Maybe learn a thing or two about hypnosis, Reiki, or even a bit about physical mediumship. But, be sure to watch my blogs for upcoming information to help demystify hypnosis and bring it to the forefront of where it belongs. The subconscious mind is a powerful tool for healing; and remember this, "if you can think it, it CAN happen". And don't forget about the Reiki!
Future posts will include myths and phobias of hypnotism, pain management, healthy living, stress and stressors, encountering negative suggestions and negative self talk, self hypnotism, emotional trauma, mind-body spirit, subconscious mind, daily affirmations and intentions, circumstance or predetermined, deja vu all over again, breathing techniques, Reiki, chakra centers, Past Life Regression "real or not" and many more topics on healing. So until the next post,
Breath - Relax - Heal.
P.S. Please let me know how I performed in my first blog post ever.
