Spanning 35 years of the knowledge and experience of Dr. Gibson, Relax and Live was written as a Self Help book and as an educational reference for the medical profession. It has been translated into a number of languages and sold internationally, proving so popular, an Indian surgeon uses it as an educational aid to his pupils.
From surgical to remedial, to ordinary, everyday illnesses, this book will enhance and enrich your life, ridding you of fears, phobias, mental and physical ailments and will ultimately teach you a better way to live a longer, healthier life.
DR. JACK GIBSON’s work in hypnotherapy over the past 37 years is inspirational. He tells his story here and that of his patients, who have greatly enriched and enlightened his life as a medical practitioner and surgeon. He tells of the alcoholics who sat around his fire evening after evening with their families, exchanging views; of the arthritic man who loved to climb mountains, and did; of the wonderful old lady who had both her legs amputated and yet was the life and soul of his hospital ward; of the little boy who was cured of his fear of snakes in trees; of the asthmatic who went on to achieve great things in athletics…
Using hypnosis alone he performed over 4,000 procedures, including setting broken bones, treating first-degree burns and plastic surgery. But he derived the most satisfaction from helping people with ordinary illness – curing asthma and acne, dispelling phobias about flying or creepy crawlies, helping people control their weight or give up cigarettes. By teaching self-hypnosis through relaxation, he helped many people to rid themselves of pain, post-operative trauma and the habits of a lifetime, such as smoking or over-eating. He is careful to stress that self-hypnosis is to do with mind- strengthening, not mind-bending as in manipulative stage entertainments.
In recent years, there has been a tremendous upsurge in societies and organisations which have one thing in common: most of them believe that the body, mind and spirit should work together in harmony, and they teach relaxing principles. They sometimes join together in Holistic Centres. It is hoped that this book may be a help to them and to all who work for a happier and healthier environment
