In bringing before the public this book on Hypnotism,
Mesmerism, and Suggestive Therapeutics, or the treatment of disease by Hypnotism and Suggestion, I feel that
no apology is necessary for introducing so important a
No method of treatment has during the last few years
attracted so much interest among men of science and
members of the medical profession, as has the science of
Hypnotism and Suggestion.
The dangers of Hypnotism and Mesmerism have been
proven chimerical; and are merely imaginary, for in
proper hands no undesirable medical results can occur
through its practice, and there is, I believe, hardly one
authenticated case of its being used for a criminal purpose in the countries where it is extensively used, especially by the medical profession. More than this can hardly
be said of any system of medical treatment. The treatment
of disease by Hypnotism and Suggestion has been very
successful where it has been practiced by qualified physicians and intelligent operators whose knowledge and
experience has taught them the use of Hypnotism and
Mesmerism in its practical application, and many noted
physicians unhesitatingly advocate its use as a powerful
auxiliary in combating many forms of nervous and other
diseases, not readily reached by other means.
Hypnotism and Mesmerism, so called, consists of a
true knowledge of the science of the human mind, or soul.
The mistake the medical fraternity have and are making is that they have made an exhaustive and scientific
study of the physical or material part of the human organism, but not of the immaterial part; they analyze and
dissect the physical body, but seem to have no realization
or knowledge of the non-physical part, or soul of man.
The mind controls the physical body, the body being
merely a register or an indicator of mental conditions, or
the actual condition of the mind; therefore it is essential
that every physician should have a thorough knowledge
of pyschology (Hypnotism and Mesmerism) as well as
physiology, which is a scientific knowledge of the mind
and its relation to the human body.
Bodily disease is always mental in origin, mental in
action, mental in character, and mental in cure, and but
for the action of the life or vital forces on the diseased
organs and functions of the body no disease would ever
be cured. The physician gives medicine to, as he says, assist
nature, which consists of the life and vital forces, or
mind, of which he has no true knowledge.
Hypnotism and Suggestion is the fundamental principle of curing and healing every disease. No matter what
other means may be employed, when nature or the life
forces within the body fails to react on the diseased functions and organs, all the medicine and physicians in the
universe cannot effect a cure, or prevent a death.
Observing people do not always have time to wander through a perplexing multitude of books in a fruitless attempt to gain a little knowledge buried therein. The
instructions and methods given here are the latest and
most complete known for inducing the Mesmeric and
Hypnotic sleep. Nothing problematical is given; but facts
gained from personal experience by the author in the successful practice of Hypnotism, Mesmerism, Suggestive
Therapeutics, and Magnetic Healing, for many years.
Many conceited and narrow-minded individuals look
upon Hypnotism as a fraud.
"Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit, There is
more hope of a fool than of him."
The fact that complete anaethsia can be produced in
any part of the body, provides the experimenter with a
ready means of demonstrating that there is no simulation
on the part of the subject.
There are two things for this class of people to learn
yet: First, that a statement that they do not believe in Hypnotism or Magnetism brands them as being ignorant and
destitute of a knowledge of Psychology.
And that to ridicule what you do not understand is
what really wise men never do.
