Sure, absolutely, I agree.  In my opinion,
hypnosis has become the easy way to doing
research and getting results.  Chris Rutkowski

This seems like a great and more reliable
alternative, but possibly slower, much slower
than hypnosis session.  It will always be the easy
way to coming up with details, whether true or false

It is extremely unfortunate that fully qualified
professional medical staff aren't always involved
Perhaps it is their lack of qualifications and
experience which maybe be tainting the process
and therefore the outcome.

>Comments requested, please,

Just my 2 cents, But is there really that
much that we can do besides being vocal?
