We show that several Hamiltonians that are symmetric may be taken to Hermitian Hamiltonians via a non-unitary transformation and vice versa. Therefore, a recipe to produce tractable non-Hermitian Hamiltonians is given (a set of instructions to do it yourself). We also show that for some specific Hamiltonians such non-unitary transformations may be associated, via a fractional-Wick rotation, to complex time.
