    IMHO any "alternative" treatment is only that until it gets mainstreamed.
    Look at acupuncture - most insurance plans now cover it.
    30 years ago...not so much.
    Hypnotherapy, including self-hypnosis, was taught in the University Psychology classes I attended to in the 1960's, doesn't really fall into "alternative" medicine.

    A friend that is the Chief of Police in his town is a licensed hypnotist and travels widely to help other police stations with some of their cases and trains other hypnotists.
    He has been doing that for a good 30 years, as far as I know.

    Interesting, Bluey.

    DH had a lot of success with smokers who wanted to stop, weightloss and worked with a dentist for patients who had fear of that practitioner.

    Works for smoking - weight loss - phobias. Amazing tool.
    I also use Reiki and other energy work as well as accupressure. It's amazing how well it can work.

    The friend that is a hypnotist used that in some cases to retrieve memories of a crime scene.
    It works very good, gets descriptions of vehicles, down to license #s and of people in the scene, details that most forget or didn't even know they had noticed.

    Sort of along these lines, but maybe not quite....What do you good people do when life, becomes really not fun. Not in your head not fun, but too many family obligations, death in the family, illness in the family....
    Is there some sort of self help remedy that helps you all out?
    I am functional. Hold down a full time job, divorced parent. If you had told me two years ago how dull I would feel today I would have shrugged you off
    When things come apart, how do you rally?

    Try counseling, have your family dr give you names to check out.

    My best friend is a counselor with her own practice, only takes in drs referrals and many are people like you.

    If there is more going on, the counselor will tell you where to go for more help.

    May be worth a try ...
