the wound closed completely, and the work we were asked to do was done.
We support the medical approach and principles that was developed by The Institute for Functional Medicine explained by the IFM as follows:
1-An understanding of the biochemical individuality of each human being, based on the concepts of genetic and
2-Awareness of the evidence that supports a patient-centered rather than a disease-centered approach to treatment;
3-Search for a dynamic balance among the internal and external body, mind, and spirit;
4-Interconnections of internal physiological factors;
5-Identification of health as a positive vitality, not merely the absence of disease, and emphasizing those factors that
encourage the enhancement of a vigorous physiology;
6-Promotion of organ reserve as the means to enhance the health span, not just the life span, of each patient.
Pyoderma Gangrenosum disease
It is a condition that causes tissue to become necrotic, causing deep ulcers that usually occur on the legs. When they occur, they can lead to chronic wounds. Ulcers usually initially look like small bug bites or papules, and they progress to larger ulcers. Though the wounds rarely lead to death, they can cause pain and scarring.
The patient we are working with is a 60 years old male, had this chronic wound for eight years, never healed. He had undergone three surgeries attempted to patch the wound with skin grafts taken from other parts of his body, and all without success. We started working on his case on 22/11/2014, we have conducted 8 hypnotherapy sessions so far and this report was written on 13 March 2015. Down are the weekly images compared to the wound's state in the day of the first session.
Update: 13 April 2015
The newly generated tissue has covered the wound area completely, (see the last photo) so the work we were asked to do was done.
Notice: All sessions (both the cognitive and the hypnotic parts) with this patient were conducted online (Skype) and facilitated by an excellent translator (the client didn't speak English).
