There is hope!
Were you aware that hypnosis can help with Alzheimer`s and Dementia? It is the conscious mind that is damaged and not the subconscious mind and it can be worked with using these proven techniques.
A dementia study was published in the journal Alzheimerís Care Today in 2007 called: Alternative Approaches to Supporting Individuals with Dementia. The study illustrates the positive effects that Hypnosis has on the Quality of Life of patients with Dementia. The study is the work of Senior Dementia Specialist, Dr Daniel Nightingale and clinical and forensic psychologist Dr Simon Duff (University of Nottingham).
In the study three groups: a ``Discussion Group``, a ``Treatment as Usual group``, and a ``Hypnosis group``- all Alzheimerís or Dementia patients showed improvements overall in their Quality of Life, and seven other areas: Concentration, Relaxation, Motivation, Activities of Daily Living, Immediate Memory, Memory for Significant Life Events and Socialization. The groups had one session per week for 9 months, then nothing for the next year. Look at the amazing results!
Remarkably, the improvement extended beyond the nine months that the hypnotherapy sessions where being implemented. A full year later the patients were still testing at or near the same improved level with no treatment after the initial nine months.

Dr. Daniel Nightingale, now living in Arizona, along with his wife Kathy have created Dementia Therapy Specialists. DTS provides training for Care Centers, Therapists and Caregivers with cutting edge therapies for a truly person-centered approach that will cut costs for care centers, and provide relief to the families and those people living with dementia. I took this training in 2014 with Dr. Dan himself.
When a person has dementia, they can become anxious and depressed, which further depletes their mental ability. First, Hypnosis reduces the worry and sadnesses of life, which makes the personís life easier. Second, Hypnosis helps to expand the use of the part of the brain that is active, by tapping into the subconscious mind.
The use of this technique employs 45 min to 1 hour weekly sessions starting with 6 sessions and works best with clients up to and including some in the 6th stage of impairment. Results show success in improving the quality of life for these clients and it is not unusual to see a 4/5 point difference out of 30 in their MMSE scores within the first 5 or 6 sessions. Although I do assessment tests such as the MSE and GDS regularly, I do require a letter from the medical professional currently treating the patient/client. I am hoping that science may soon find the ability to cure and to reverse this insidious disease. However, knowing that Hypnosis can improve the quality of life is a small victory.
