Many years ago i used hypnosis for lichen planus (itchy scales all over body). I "suggested" under hypnosis that the scales would fall off. That night when she undressed the scales fell off and she had to get a brush and pan to sweep them up. Skin cells originate from the same cells that are used to create the brain and probably explains why a skin disease responds to such treatment.
