"In hypnosis you are more suggestible, but will not do anything you truly do not want to do, so you are a great candidate if you want to control your diabetes to live a long and healthful life. Hypnosis is not a one-shot magical quickie any more than conventional medical treatment. Rather, it allows clients to gain increasing control of their lives and health following a well-directed and time-tested therapeutic protocol," she said
