Emory Medical School Seminars

By Charles Wm. Skillas, PhD, DD, BCH, CI, FNGH, MCCHt

 

     It gives me great pleasure to report that the allopathic medical community is beginning to appreciate hypnotherapy as a healing art. This is the fifth year in a row that I have been invited to give three seminars on "How Hypnotherapy Heals" during the summer to the incoming medical students at Emory University Medical School. I gave one seminar in June to about 200 students and then again on July 9, 2007 to about 70 students. I will be giving my third seminar to additional students on Monday, July 23, 2007 at Dobbs Hall on the Emory University Campus. The National Youth Leadership Foundation sponsors the seminars.

     Actually, the medical community officially recognized hypnotherapy as an adjunctive healing modality in 1958, but it has largely been ignored by the mainstream medical community with the exception of some psychologists who use a very simplistic form of hypnotherapy. Hypnosis by itself is just a tool to access the subconscious self and it is sometimes possible to change programs on the subconscious virtual hard-drive by putting a person into hypnosis and reading him a new program script. This is the kind of limited use of hypnosis that most psychologists and psychiatrists use, if they use it at all.

     It is no wonder that they do not use it more because it is fairly ineffective as a healing modality as practiced. In order for hypnotherapy to be very effectual, the hypnotist has to become a hypnotherapist and not just a hypnotist. A hypnotist knows how to hypnotize and this gets him into the subconscious self wherein are buried all the problem sources that plague the suffering person. The problem is that just going into the subconscious self without getting rid of the negative forcing functions that support the bad programs on the virtual hard drive doesn't do much for healing.

     The subconscious mind is actually a very large analog, parallel processing super bio-computer and the integrated summation of the programs on its virtual hard drive determines the person's behavior, how he feels and his response to life. To change these, you must change the programs. However, if the old bad programs are supported by energy from any of the negative forcing functions, the new good programs do not have much of a chance to help the person. The new good program just evaporates. In order to change the person, the negative forcing functions supporting the bad programs in the subconscious must be dug out and released…then you can put new programs on the subconscious hard drive and after that, they have a good chance of being successful in changing the person.

     When I lecture to the new Emory Medical Students, I describe the negative forcing functions and how they reduce the flow of chi life force energy to the cell communities of the body at the cellular level and how this affects the person, mentally, emotionally, physically and even spiritually according to the Eastern Model of Disease. I also demonstrate hypnosis by putting someone from the audience into hypnosis who has a headache, hip ache, painful knee or other physical discomfort and then get rid of the discomfort. It impresses the new medical students and I get many positive responses from them regarding hypnotherapy. When these new MD's graduate, they may have a greater appreciation of hypnotherapy and bring allopathic medicine and hypnotherapy closer as healing modalities.
