Welcome back to the Full Capacity living podcast and is this one a mind blower or what?

I love digging into things in the world of health and wellness that are a bit different yet hold a lot of promise.

Well my conversation with Dr. Steve Bierman is just one of those topics

Steve Bierman M.D. received his undergraduate degree from UCLA and his doctorate from Northwestern University, School of Medicine. After completing his Family Practice residency at UCSD, he worked nearly 20 years as a board-certified Emergency Physician at Scripps Memorial Hospital, in Encinitas, California.

Here’s where it gets interesting….

His Book “Healing: Beyond Pills and Potions- “is about the impact of ideas on health and healing.”

“It also looks at the kind of ideas patients hold that often contribute to illness, or contrastingly, that can actually contribute to their wellness and overcoming whatever illness they’re fighting,” he added.

Throughout his career,Steve Bierman has incorporated medical hypnosis and neuro-linguistic programming, commonly referred to as NLP, to help patients as they prepare for surgery or other types of treatment.

“It’s fair to say the burden of scientific proof still rests on the people who are using these techniques,” Bierman said. “It would go a long way to have well designed studies proving out the points that they maintain.”

based on the results he’s been able to get using hypnosis for helping patients improve their heart rhythms, open their airways or help them through other types of procedures, “it’s very hard to have doubt whether it worked or not.”
