Often the mind-body system uses physical or behavioural vulnerabilities to dump tensions. These may act as unconscious defence mechanisms to distract from other difficulties and their causes.
Although epilepsy includes a whole class of neurological difficulties, where the condition is already medically regulated, the frequency and severity of Epileptic episodes often continue to be related to psychological conflict and tension in the sufferer. The frequency of episodes often relates to patterns of underlying difficulty which can be largely resolved. Ericksonian work - which pays careful attention to process details - can identify and relieve such tensions and reduce seizures.
Many other conditions commonly thought to be entirely physical can be treated in a similar way. For example, Insomnia, Migraine Headaches, Irritable Bowel Syndrome / IBS, ME and Arthritis can be profoundly improved or removed through hypnosis. Although not commonly known, hypnosis is used to Induce or Assist Anaesthesia and in Preparation for Major Surgery and Speeding Recovery - a result which has been known since the pioneering work of James Braid in the Crimean War.
