What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming?

This form of treatment seeks to replace counterproductive reactions that hamper the healing process with beneficial ones that boost it. Proponents say that it can ease pain, speed recovery from injury, combat allergies, and even enhance the immune system. Unfortunately, despite a number of enthusiastic testimonials, there's no solid evidence that this type of therapy really makes a difference. If you try it, you'll have to take it on faith that it works. There's no question that psychological reactions do have physical impact on the body, so the therapy's effectiveness remains a genuine, if unproven, possibility.

The theory behind this form of treatment is that people who are ill - particularly those with chronic disorders - become victimized by their own negativity. This process ultimately changes their self-perceptions and even their identity. They begin to think of themselves primarily in terms of their disease. When someone becomes "a diabetic," rather than "a person with diabetes," the disease has taken over. The more you identify with your condition, say neurolinguistic therapists, the less likely you'll be able to overcome it.
