The Benefits of Clinical Hypnotherapy in Functional Medicine
Norman Plotkin is the author of two books, as well as a coach, mentor, public speaker, and health and wellness hypnotherapist. After a 25 year career as a public policy consultant and lobbyist, Plotkin battled cancer and emerged with a new perspective. He went back to school and became a certified clinical hypnotherapist with a mission to teach his clients how to take charge of their health challenges. In this episode of the FM Shift, Norm joins us to share his journey and talk about the benefits of clinical hypnotherapy in functional medicine.
Overcoming Psychological Barriers to Treatment
In the world of functional medicine, we are often dealing with chronically ill patients who have been sick for a long time. It is our job to communicate with them, figure out what is wrong with them, and design a treatment plan that inspires them to take action. The problem is that many patients have a difficult time articulating what is wrong with them, which creates a rift that makes it difficult to treat them. Clinical hypnotherapy can significantly aid our efforts in helping patients overcome the psychological barriers to treatment so they can get healthy.
Synchronizing the Subconscious
Norman uses clinical psychotherapy to help patients explore the underlying sources of their conditions so they can move forward to live happier, healthier lives. Oftentimes, we do not experience the residual impacts of life events the way we think we are experiencing them. This phenomenon is immensely detrimental to our state of health. By disarming patients and helping them understand what actually happened as a result of those life events, we can break them out of the cycle and eliminate the predictable future. When the subconscious mind is able to let go of the contrived story and address what caused a particular health issue in the present, we can consciously take the steps to resolve the issue.
