Virgil Partch  Hypnosis Can Be Useful In Medicine, Psychiatry  By Dr. S.L. Andelman  4* Ai,;- ii  Hypnosis can be a very useful tool in medicine and psychiatry. No one knows how it works, but in some way the functions of the nervous system of susceptible subjects respond to the hypnotist, who represents authority.  Hypnosis offers virtually no dangers except when used by an unqualified person who wouldn't recognize an erupting psychosis. Therefore, no one should allow himself to be hypnotized without knowing the qualifications of the therapist. In some cases hypnosis is just as effective as drugs, yet it produces no nega  tive side effects and is not addictive.  Suggestions  A physician trained in hypno-I sis can use it to dissociate the subject from the sensation of pain, obviously of value in obstetrics, dentistry and certain other surgical conditions. The hypnotist may even suggest to the patient that minimal bleeding take place during these procedures. And he may relieve postoperative discomfort and speed recovery time. Hypnosis has been used with terminal cancer patients to alleviate pain when drugs are no longer effective.  Though there is still prejudice against hypnosis, it’s especially beneficial in psychotherapy.  It has great value in treating patients with amnesia, in studying childhood influences through suggesting age regression, in recalling significant memories and in treating conversion symptoms (organic symptoms caused by mental conflicts).  Recall  Age regression and-or recall can be accomplished with hypnosis when the psychiatrist! wishes the subject to return to any age in his childhood and  react as he did then. With this method, childhood traumas that have been consciously forgotten by the patient can be uncovered.  Posthypnotic suggestions (those given during hypnosis but carried out at a later date) are valuable when properly worded by the trained therapist. The patient's unconscious mind can be reconditioned in a positive direction. Whenever a condition or disease is psychosomatic, there is a strong possibility that through hypnotic suggestion the patient may be guided into curing himself.  umns.
