↓ Read MoreTom has been a patient of Dr. Diane’s for over four years now. He had palate cancer, which was treated with radiation, which, as he puts it, “scrambled his brain.” He also developed a fistula inside his mouth, which took multiple surgeries to correct, and caused him to develop a very serious sinus infection. In the final and most recent surgery, they removed a part of his cheek to use as a graft to repair his gums.
Throughout the whole process, Dr. Diane has been treating him with a cold laser on his facial scar, as well as neurofeedback and hypnosis. This has resulted in the minimizing of his scar (see pictured). But more importantly, Dr. Diane has given a great amount of emotional and mental support.
“I don’t really think medicine always hits all the nails it’s supposed to,” He says. “Yes you also need the hand of medicine to redirect and to slice and to do some repair work… But for the most part, I really think that once the cancer was removed, the healing portion belonged to the Doctor. She showed me how to heal myself.”
Before his medical issues, Tom worked in the construction industry, hopping from site to site. Now, he’s a very different person, but Dr. Diane has helped him with that transition.
“I’m not the same person I was before, and I won’t get back to the same level I was at, but that’s okay,” He says. “The trick is, you have to consume it instead of having it consume you.” While his treatments did help him manage his physical pain, he also says that Dr. Diane helped him heal mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

↓ Read MoreAn 86-year-old man who had a severe case of shingles (Neuralgia) on his scalp, which continued down to his left eye, came into my office. He has been to numerous doctors over a six-month period and nothing was able to help, including medication. He was in severe pain (zero-ten) he stated 10 that was burning. Various experimental medication was purposed, however with his age and allergic reaction, the doctors were concerned about the side effects.
Thus, he was referred to my office knowing expertise in hypnosis and having be published in the field.
My method of practice is a teaching/coaching one. Also, I have developed a 5 Prong Approach. As with every patient, I review their medical history; I then presented an in-depth review of hypnosis followed by creating a customize script that is based on each person most pleasurable experience.
The 86-year-old loved the ocean and was an ex-auto mechanic. Based on that his customize script was developed. After 10 days, his shingles were gone. Totally disappeared.
The entire script is on pages 76-77 is in the Handbook of Hypnotic Suggestion and Metaphor.
