Can you think of anything more difficult for a young fifteen year old boy than being afflicted with a condition that makes your skin look like alligator hide? This was the fate of a young British teenager being treated by Dr Moore at the Queen Victoria Hospital in Great Britton in 1952. The boy looked like he had millions of warts covering his legs, arms and feet. Dr. Moore was preparing the boy for another surgery. The doctor had been unsuccessfully trying to graft skin from the boy’s unaffected chest to his hands. He was not pleased with the results, but had no other options for treatment. A young anesthsiologist, Dr Albert Mason, who admits he was ‘young and cocky’ had previously cured others of warts using hypnosis. He turned to Dr. Moore and said; “Why don’t you treat him with hypnotism?” Dr. Moore said sarcastically; “Why don’t you?” and walked out of the room.
The next day Dr. Mason hypnotized the boy and gave him the hypnotic suggestion that the warts would fall of his right arm and new soft skin would replace it. When the boy returned a week later his right arm looked beautifully healthy. In delight he took the boy to see Dr. Moore. When Dr. Moore saw the results his eyes widdened with astonishment. He then told Dr. Mason that the boy was not suffering from warts, but had an incurable rare congenital desease, Congenital Ichthyosis Erythroderma. By using no more than the power of his mind the boy had conquered an incurable skin desease. Dr Mason continued the hypnotic treatments until the condition was completely reversed. The young boy who had been teased at school because of his red bumpy, alligator-like skin returned to his school classes with normal healthy skin and went on to lead a very normal life.
Dr. Mason published his case study in the British Medical Journal, a prestigious journal widely read world wide. As word spread of the healing, Dr. Mason was flooded with patients hoping for the same result. But the good doctor was never able to replicate total healing. Dr. Mason said that he knew the young boy had the power to heal himself because he had witnessed the miraculous healing of his right arm, so he continued hypnotic treatments until the healing was complete. But doubts crept in as he treated his new paients. He could not recapture the enthusiasm of the ‘young and cocky’ doctor who knew he could heal warts. He tried to be upbeat and pretend the desease was curable. But he knew he was treating an incurable geneic desease. “I was acting,” he said in an interview with Discovery Health Chanel. “I knew it had no right to get well.”
The power of a strongly held belief is miraculous. When the medical community begins to study and harness its use, medicine will take a huge leap forward. Rather than using the current three modes of treatment….. burn, poison or cut out, wouldn’t it be great to heal without drugs, extremely costly hospitals and surgeries, or expensive insurance?
For now Earlynn’s just sayin; “Never underestimate the power of belief to bring the impossible into fruition. This incredible power is wihin us all. The challenge is to assert ownership of this power to keep ourselves healthy.”
