Pain and Hypnosis
Hypnosis is a very useful tool to use in alleviating or diminishing pain in the body by at least 50% to not having pain at all. Hypnosis is a process whereby you are lead into a deep state of relaxation. In this state of deep relaxation you become aware of the pain. In hypnosis you are put in a hypnotic trance. In this trance it is suggested that you become aware of your breathing; breathing is emphasized to help regulate your sympathetic nervous system.
The sympathetic nervous system is the system in the body that serves to accelerate the heart rate, constrict blood vessels and raise blood pressure. It also becomes out of balance because of our unawareness of our thoughts, and actions. Pain and disease in the body has a lot to do with the imbalances in the body due to our diet and lifestyle. Mental or physical stress and an unhealthy diet, including refined sugars, fried food and over indulgence in food and drink, can cause pain in the body as well. This is a major cause of inflammation in the body that causes pain.
Acidic foods, and left over or stale foods, build up toxins in the body and can cause pain and inflammation in the joints that cause joint pain such as arthritis, burning sensation, swollen ankles, knees, and legs. Hypnosis will help you through the hypnotic suggestion so that you are mindful of the foods you eat and the thoughts we think. Stress in the body and mind is intimately related with causing pain in the body.
We use hypnosis in controlling the thoughts to manage or alleviate the pain in the body. With positive suggestions to you in a hypnotic state (trance), you will be reminded to be mindful of the new suggested way of eating with awareness, and you will realize as a result of awareness the lack of pain in the body. Hypnosis is a useful, natural tool that can be used to manage pain, stop over eating, smoking, phobias and more. Hypnosis is used to ease the pain of surgery or excessive pills taken for pain management.
When the conscious part of the brain is temporarily relaxed the person focuses on relaxing and letting go of distracting thoughts, thereby allowing the mind to slow down the pulse and respiration. When the pulse and respiration is slowed, the heart rate and respiration is then slowed causing relief in the body and mind and the pain is released or just simply gone.
When using hypnosis for pain management there may need to be a series of sessions. There are different levels of pain, and discomfort we carry in the body and mind. The sessions can vary depending on the severity of the discomfort in the body and mind.
Hypnosis is a pain-free technique used in healing the body and mind. Hypnosis only requires your participation and willingness and it will happen, the pain will be gone from the body, or three degrees milder, or more. Give it a try.
