Dr. Nathalie Fiset
Fiset has been a family doctor in Montreal, Canada since 1990. From a
broad family practice, she had to narrow it down to the follow-up of pregnancies
and attending births. Her path came across hypnosis in 2001. She immediately
developed an interest for hypnotherapy, feeling like she had found the
missing link in her medical practice and in her personal life. After all,
it's not everyday you find a 100% natural method, proven safe and efficient
for bringing about better mental, physical and spiritual health and well-being.
She completed her hypnotherapy certification in 2004 with Omni Hypnosis
Training Center and in 2005 received a second certification with the American
Alliance of Hypnotists, and she has done extensive research on this fascinating
this mean you think that hypnosis is better than traditional medicine?
not! If you are suffering from an acute perforated appendicitis, find
the best surgeon in town and have him remove your appendix promptly. People
will agree with me that traditional medicine has always and will always
have its place in health and well-being. One simple example is antibiotics.
The number of lives it has saved in the past is countless. I can tell
you that when we did a medical mission in Arteaga, Mexico during July
of 2004 and the medications arrived late on the second day, those antibiotics
were like gold for treating the children with high fever and suffering
from acute otitis.
is then the place for hypnosis?
hypnosis to be an interesting alternative for that gray zone where neither
psychology nor traditional medicine have good results. An example of those
applications is Weight Loss, Smoking Cessation, Chronic Anxiety and Stress,
Insomnia, Natural Childbirth, etc.
you think hypnosis works?
As you know
when we take resolutions with the best intentions in the world, we get
into an internal battle. An example of this is when someone is on a diet.
What is the number one thought in his or her mind? Yes, food! So the second
she is getting off this diet, guess what, those foods are gone. Hypnosis
works on the subconscious part of our mind, the non-arguing part, so changes
take place easily and effortlessly. I always get a smile on my face when
I catch myself doing something that I know is a direct consequence of
the suggestions I got in hypnosis, like saying no thank you to food I
would normally have swallowed up in the past.
you have such an interest in hypnosis?
I am a medical doctor who happens to think that we are overmedicated.
The consumption of medication is constantly rising and we all know that
when we take a pill, there are side-effects associated with it, sometimes
creating more problems. I always get concerned when they take a medication
off the market because they had "unexplained deaths" with people
on this medication.
obvious that everyone should have a good doctor that they see regularly.
I see modern hypnosis as a complement to medicine. If a person is highly
overweight, her blood pressure tends to rise, her sugar levels increase,
her arteries get clogged, her doctor will do the follow-up and take all
necessaries measures to ensure the best. But where can this person go
to find help in loosing weight, getting motivation for exercises, diminishing
her stress level·etc? This is where hypnosis can play a very interesting,
complementary and natural role.
is very powerful because it works by bypassing the critical factors of
the conscious mind . This way, more positive and healthy suggestions can
be input in the subconscious and result in easy changes. The most impressive
application of hypnosis for me is when I saw the movie of a woman who
had a caesarian section with hypnosis as the sole anesthesia and was singing
during the whole procedure. In fact, doctor James Eisdale (1808-1859)
, a surgeon, performed hundreds of surgeries in Calcutta (some major ones
like amputations) with only hypnosis as anesthesia. He actually reported
a postoperative death rate of 5% while the current rate at that period
was over 50%. This shows you that when you go into surgery with the proper
mind set, you recover much better, a proven scientific fact. This convinced
