Inflammation in your body can lead to a number of health concerns. Inflammation is caused in part due to the release of particular hormones. These hormones, like cortisol, nicknamed the “stress hormone”, are released at times of great stress and anxiety. Even mild stress, when it is chronic in nature, occurring all the time, promotes the inflammation which is caused by the release of these hormones.
Hypnosis has been used to deliver a wide variety of health benefits. People have learned to break lifelong addictions and stop negative behaviors thanks to hypnotherapy sessions. It works for young and old, and people of all cultures and beliefs. Can hypnotherapy really cure anxiety and stress, thereby leading to better health? Let’s take a look.
Is It Anxiety or Is It Stress?
Anxiety and stress are very similar, but not the same. Stress occurs on a daily basis. As long as you don’t suffer chronic stress, your body’s natural response will usually calm you down and keep further problems from developing. On the other hand, anxiety can be viewed as an exaggerated state of stress.
People with anxiety disorders or panic attacks can suffer from these debilitating conditions for no reason at all. They can “pop up” at any time, or anywhere. These individuals suffer massive feelings of anxiety and panic, which can keep them from leading a normal, healthy life.
Hypnotherapy can help.
Hypnosis enables you to perceive things in a different way. Under hypnosis, you “program” your brain to view formerly anxious situations as not that stressful. This change of perception that hypnotherapy provides is why people are sometimes able to stop lifelong addictions and change incredibly destructive behaviors through sessions of hypnosis.
Make sure you deal only with a licensed hypnotherapist. Also, forget what you see when a hypnotist entertainer comes to town at your local comedy club. A licensed hypnotherapist will interview you in depth. You will get to know why you feel anxious in certain situations, and then the therapy sessions will help you understand the root cause which makes you anxious when you shouldn’t be.
Hypnosis is all about changing your perceptions.
This can lead to effectively treating, and in many cases curing, sleep disorders, depression, grief and loss, phobias and fears, anxiety and stress. Contact a local therapist today is your anxiety attacks and panicky feelings are keeping you from enjoying a healthy standard of living.
