Has hypnotherapy been used to help treat endo?

Some people do use Hypnotherapy to deal with the endometriosis symptoms.

When using Hypnotherapy, it usually focuses on relaxation as a response to pain. Some hypnotherapists claim to be able to switch off the chronic pain signals.

Helping you switch to healthier lifestyles and managing stress, supporting fertility and using visualisation to balance hormones. As usual, there aren't many scientific papers or studies that either are for this or against it. There's not a lot of science you can do on holistic therapies but if you have the means to do it and you're not putting yourself in debt by trying it and stuff like that, then it might be worth a try.

It might work for you. With all holistic therapies there are some that work for some people. There are others that work for other people. It's all very individual, just like endo itself. You get different symptoms in different people, so different therapies work for different people. It's the same with the hormonal treatments.

One will work for one person really well, but another won't work at all. So like with all Endo treatments, it's worth giving it a try. If you want to do that.
