There is no denying the effect of chronic disorders or chronic pain on our mental health. Equally we are learning more and more about the physical effects that our mental health can have on the body. The NHS describe a major portion of patient reported symptoms have no pathological cause yet patients continue to suffer stomach disorders, muscle spasms, tinnitus, headaches, colitis, to name but a few. It is eminently known that positive mental health, attitude and expectation play a huge part in our self care and ability to heal.
Major causes of health problems are stress, genetics and injury and though it may seem that mental health therapy would be suitable only in the first instance, the NHS recognise the vital importance of treating all conditions both known and unknown, holistically.
Stress when it becomes a persistent and negative factor in your life can manifest a collapse in your body's defences leaving the door open to illness, disease and chronic conditions as well as mental disorders. The reactions we have to stress can vary widely between individuals and even gender. The physical effects of stress might include headaches, ulcers, arthritis, colitis, diarrhoea, asthma, cardiac arrhythmia, circulatory problems, sexual problems, muscle tension and even cancer.
Health problems may be inherited such as diabetes, heart problems. allergies and asthma and although in some they may never manifest it is true nonetheless that stress and mental attitude can absolutely affect physical changes in the body.
Suffering an injury is absolutely not intentional however therapy has shown over and over again that it boosts the immune system and those in receipt of hypnotherapy especially heal much quicker than those without.
Hypnotherapy has also been shown to be an effective tool in alleviating chronic pain as the emotional and psychological aspect is tremendously important to the perception of that pain. Just as you can live near a busy road and within no time at all simply not be aware of the traffic rumbling by outside, you are also able to modify the awareness of that pain.
Hypnotherapy is a wonderful way of accessing our own mind body connection for the benefit of healing and alleviating physical disorders. Therapy is used to reduce stress and increase positive attitude, to feel calmer and healthier, boosting our immune system to do its job more effectively. In clinic we will discuss your own health issues whatever they may be and introduce positive suggestions for their improvement.
