A recent paper published in Pediatric Asthma, Allergy, & Immunology has found a great way to help children with respiratory ailments: hypnosis.The findings show how well it worked in children and the idea for treatment was brought on by the observation that symptoms all but disappear while children are asleep. The study was mostly done by Ran D. Anbar, MD, Professor of Pediatrics at SUNY Upstate Medical University. In the end, many think that by adding hypnosis to the treatments offered, one can save money in the long run by not purchasing expensive medications and testing.
Hypnotherapy has been touted in the past for various things; most notably in aiding with smoking cessation. It has also been used to help with anxiety disorders, stress, and more.
