journey from misery to healing using Hypnotherapy
I was dying. I could not get my breath and my head spun.
My heart pounded as if it was going to explode. But
most of all it was the cold grip of fear enveloping
me. Please God, help me! This was the panic attack I
lived with daily. I also could not sleep, often-going
sleepless 4-5 days in a row from a sleep disorder called
Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS). My blood pressure soared
astronomically and I waited for the stroke.
to medical doctors, psychiatrists and psychologists
finding little help. Three sleep clinics and countless
doctors put me on sleep drugs to which I became addicted
and had to suffer withdrawal agony repeatedly. Psychotropic
drugs for panic attacks, and beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors
and calcium channel blockers for hypertension. Ending
up in the hospital emergency on nights when the fear
engulfed me beyond my ability to cope. This was how
I lived, if you could call it living.
this, I still had to make a living. In spite of these
problems, I advanced in my jobs, becoming vice president
of a major defense electronics firm and responsible
for $300 million a year in Anti Submarine Warfare Systems.
In this job, I had to conduct meetings, travel extensively,
make presentations to high-ranking government officials
in Washington, DC and be on my toes in this very competitive
business. I was finding it increasingly difficult to
cope with my job responsibilities.
problem ultimately became so bad that I reluctantly
quit this job and moved to Atlanta to become a consultant
to the government and aerospace companies. I figured
a consultant could set his own hours and I might live
with my affliction. I had saved enough money for a good
investment income and felt secure, financially.
I had not
been in Atlanta a year when the stock market and a crooked
broker cleaned me out and I was in serious debt. Panic
attacks, terrible insomnia, severe hypertension, almost
broke, in debt and without a job. So much for security!
I had to go back to work and to do that I had to improve
my health or I would die.
session in the hospital de-tox to get off Xanax taken
for sleep and panic attacks, I went for a year with
intense panic attacks and sleep deprivation. I now realized
I had to change things or I could not continue to live,
much less work. That's when I discovered Holistic Medicine
oriented wife found a chiropractor who used gemstones
in healing and she wanted me to try him as I wasn't
getting anywhere with the treatment I was receiving.
I was a conventional businessman and technologist, with
a Ph.D. in Engineering and an MBA in business. I thought
this "voodoo" treatment was ridiculous and
wouldn't have it, preferring to find an accepted solution.
However, I just couldn't get there. The problems persisted
in spite of the best efforts of my allopathic doctors.
finally drove me to try the gem stone chiropractor and
for some reason I didn't understand, I felt better,
more relaxed. Therefore, I continued to see him and
began to investigate other holistic therapies because
of my curiosity about what I was feeling from some crazy
stones on my body.
I felt from the gem stone therapy, although positive
was very subtle, so I looked for stronger therapies.
Over the next few years, in addition to chiropractic,
I tried Christian Science, Chiropractic, Osteopathy,
Cerebral Spinal Fluid Therapy, Chinese Energetic Medicine,
Homeopathy, Reiki, Aromatherapy, Herbal Therapy, Peruvian
Shamanism, Soul Retrieval, Acupuncture, Shiatsu, Rebirthing,
Body Electronics, Yoga, Massage, Hypnotherapy and finally
Hypnotherapy with Spirit Releasement. All the therapies
helped some, but Hypnotherapy with Spirit Releasement
finally put me on the road to true healing. Over time,
my panic attacks stopped, I slept better and my blood
pressure normalized with very small doses of medicine.
this time, I realized I could feel Chi energy flowing
in the body and sense energy blockages. I remembered
my Grandmother could do this and I must have inherited
it from her. So impressed was I with the change in my
health using Holistic Medicine that I began to treat
others with Shiatsu, a technique for opening blockages
in the body's energy pathways and was successful in
temporarily alleviating some miseries. I read voraciously
and soon realized that I was only working on symptom
release and not healing the source problem. I remembered
what Hypnotherapy had done for me and thought it might
improve my Shiatsu energy work.
So, I began
to study and use Hypnotherapy, because it is the only
healing modality allowing direct access to the subconscious
wherein is buried all the causes for illness. I became
Board Certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists
(NGH) in Basic and Advanced Hypnotherapy and soon after
studied and became proficient in Spirit Releasement
Therapy, Past Life Regression Therapy and Parts Therapy.
Adding these Hypnotherapies to my energy clearing capability
proved to be very successful in allowing me to help
people with all kinds of problems. People began coming
to me when they ran out of options with other healing
modalities and I was usually able to help them.
does all this mean? To me it means that when conventional
allopathic medicine cannot solve your problems, look
to the addition of holistic therapies to adjunct your
treatment. I think Hypnotherapy is the most powerful
holistic therapy there is, especially when used in a
complimentary role to conventional allopathic medicine,
but most of the other holistic therapies also help.
of making a living in a very competitive society can
be almost overwhelming to some people and they may feel
there is no way out --- but there is. Remember that
every night has a dawn, and every dawn is a new beginning
of life. Never, ever give up!
