Dr. Lester Millikin was an outstanding surgeon in St. Louis and became well known for his discoveries with the Abdominal areas. He was invited to go to Russia and show some of his discoveries and work with them for awhile. This was during the time that we were at war with Russia in the 1960s however, he did not go.
He invented the procedure that is now used for several surgeries of the Abdomen. Such as the small incision used to remove the appendix. Dr. Millikin was also discovering back in the 1960s more about using Hypnosis in surgery procedures.
Dr. Millikin was also discovering back in the 1960s more about using Hypnosis in surgery procedures.
Dr. Lester A. Millikin, of St. Louis, presented a significant paper, complete with case histories and film, proving that many arthritic conditions have a psychosomatic origin. Such emotions as fear, jealousy, worry, love, etc.-one or all-may lead to conflict tensions. This can cause painful muscle spasms. Dr. Millikin's theories have convinced many observers to feel that many sufferers are undergoing psychosomatic reactions, which can be alleviated with hypnosis.
