Alternative medicine is a term that describes medical treatments that are used instead of traditional (mainstream) therapies. Some people also refer to it as complementary medicine. More than half of adults in the United States say they use some form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), which can include hypnosis, meditation, CBD oil, and many other topics.
Cannabidiol oil, most commonly referred to as CBD oil, is the non-intoxicating hemp or marijuana component that is tauted by many as helping address a variety of medical conditions.
Hypnosis is a trance-like condition where a person has enhanced concentration and focus. When under hypnosis, a person typically feels relaxed and calm, and is much more receptive to suggestions.
Meditation is a practice where a person uses a technique — such as mindfulness, or focusing the mind on a particular object or thought, or even light and sound technology — to train awareness and attention, and reach a mentally clear and stable and emotionally calm state.
The traditional way to deal with pain has been prescription painkillers. But such medication is powerful and for many people brings with it adverse — sometimes very adverse — side effects. That’s why many people are trying — and having success with — alternative methods such as hypnotism, meditation and CBD oil.
