According to a Harris Poll conducted before the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 50% of Americans delay or do not get health care because they cannot afford it. And now, with the coronavirus crisis grabbing headlines around the world, people are less likely – and less able – to find medical help for chronic conditions other than COVID-19.
“When it comes to chronic disease, we participate in a system that leaves everyone wanting,” says Dr. Sonia Gupte, author of the bestselling book, Within: Finding Yourself, Fixing What’s Broken, & Finally Reclaiming True Health. “If only we could better manage chronic disease by reducing dependency on medications and diminishing the impact of chronic disease on the body, would pandemics like COVID-19 have a different outcome?”
Dr. Gupte’s secret is not a new drug, but a relatively new modality for unlocking the healing power of the mind: Integrated Clinical Hypnotherapy. “I’ve witnessed what seem like miracles using hypnotherapy; but really, it’s just evidence that working with both mind and body simultaneously can achieve results superior to working with the physiology alone,” she says. “This book is my way of sharing that evidence with the world.”
Dr. Gupte’s book, Within, became an instant success on Amazon, achieving number one bestseller status in the Hypnotherapy category and in the Hypnosis Psychology & Counseling category. The book also achieved international bestseller status as a Hot New Release in several markets, ranking in some of the world’s most competitive categories in the United Kingdom, France, India, and Japan. These results were verified by Amazon on January 22, 2021.
In the book, Dr. Gupte documents her quest “from doctor to healer,” taking the reader along on her personal journey through her beginning medical practice, to her discovery of hypnotherapy as a healing modality, to finally hanging up her stethoscope to pursue a different way of healing the body by healing the mind and emotions.
Even more intriguing, Dr. Gupte tells the stories of her many hypnotherapy clients, highlighting unusual and remarkable instances of healing in people with chronic physical conditions who had given up on, or were not helped by, traditional medicine. Initially, Dr. Gupte tried to integrate hypnotherapy into her medical practice, offering it as an alternative to the typical standard of care. Before long, she found that the “alternative” therapy proved more successful than the mainstream approach.
“As a hypnotherapist, I have witnessed transformation of complex physical and psychological issues that I know I would not have resolved as a physician,” Dr. Gupte explains. “I have helped patients with gastritis, GERD, IBS, obesity, smoking addiction, anxiety, depression, phobias, pain, and countless other conditions. I consistently hear client after client tell me, ‘I’ve done so many things to make this problem better. Now I understand why all of those things didn’t work.’”
According to Dr. Cherie-Ann Nathan, director of Head and Neck Surgical Oncology at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center, hypnotherapy can fill a significant void by helping patients overcome physical and emotional hardships. “Dr. Gupte has brought a unique, effective and much-needed resource to our survivorship clinics,” Dr. Nathan says.
“Dr. Gupte’s unique skill in clinical hypnosis makes readers feel that anything is possible!” says Dr. Rupa Mahadevan. “She has already changed the medical profession for the better and she demonstrates through her patients that hypnotherapy is one of the most efficacious modalities ‘modern’ medicine has to offer.”
Dr. Gupte’s vision is to revolutionize the medical system, and she believes her book can create a paradigm shift that triggers a movement. “I’ve written this book for both physicians and patients,” she says. “I know that there is an ever-increasing number of doctors and patients who have become frustrated with the limitations of modern medicine and want to go deeper to find alternatives that have a higher level of success. These cases are meant for those who are bold enough to consider options outside of the traditional paradigm.”
Dr. Sonia Gupte, CHt, is the founder and director of Enso-nia Center for Mind and Life Transformation in San Diego, California, an organization dedicated to revolutionizing the field of human wellness through the integration of hypnotherapy into mainstream healthcare. She received her training from the internationally-renowned Dr. Brian Weiss as well as EKAA Foundation and TASSO Institute Holland.
