Below is an excerpt from the Clinical Journal of Experimental Hypnosis
The study indicates that hot flashes were decreased by 72% when mental imagery or self hypnosis was practiced with post menopausal women. Earth Solutions recognizes the benefits of self hypnosis and pairs it with synergistic aromatherapy essential oil blends in order to create a scent-memory association to help recall the affirmation. Using positive affirmations with therapeutic essential oil blends works on many levels to help users achieve the desired outcome.
A pilot investigation of guided self-hypnosis in the treatment of hot flashes among postmenopausal women.
Int J Clin Exp Hypn. 2013;61(3):342-50. doi: 10.1080/00207144.2013.784112.
Previous research has demonstrated that a hypnotic intervention can reduce hot flashes, a significant problem for some women. Based on the authors' previous research, the present study was developed to evaluate the feasibility of a guided self-hypnosis intervention for hot flashes. Thirteen postmenopausal women received 5 sessions of guided self-hypnosis in which all hypnotic inductions were recordings. Guidance regarding symptom monitoring, individualization of mental imagery, and practice of self-hypnosis were provided. Hot flashes were determined through diaries. Results indicated average frequency of hot flashes decreased by 72% (p < .001) and hot-flash scores decreased by 76% (p < .001) on average. Guided self-hypnosis reduced perceived hot flashes in the pilot study with postmenopausal women supporting the possible feasibility and potential benefit of the intervention.
Another article in Menopause Magazine suggests that hypnosis worked as well as commonly used prescription medicines:
