Additionally, there are 30 other conditions that both sample adults and sample children could report treating with hypnosis. For the full list of conditions, see HYPTREAT.

Hypnosis is one of 16 modalities of alternative medicine that were included in the 2002 and 2007 Alternative Health Supplements. In both 2002 and 2007, information about hypnosis was collected on many topics (such as the cost of treatment); however, only the 2007 survey included questions about using hypnosis to treat a standard list of specific conditions. (See HYPYR for more information.)

For most of the alternative health treatment modalities, the treatment of stroke was reported for both 2002 and 2007. For two of the modalities--hypnosis and movement techniques--treatment of stroke (and 115 other conditions) was included in 2007 only. (See MOVALEXYR for more information.) For one modality--prayer--treatment of stroke (and 73 other conditions) was reported in 2002 only. (See PRASELFEV for more information.) Analysts interested in the treatment of stroke by alternative therapies other than hypnosis should see HYPYR for the full list of alternative medicine treatments, as well as for a summary of hypnosis-related questions and definitions.


HYPTSTROKE is only available for 2007. Sample adults were asked about their use of most of the alternative health modalities to treat stroke in 2002, but they were not asked about using hypnosis to treat stroke or most other specific health conditions in 2002.
