Many fears and phobias are simply so frightening they cause us to experience a fight or flight response. The mere sight of a speeding car bearing down on you just before an accident can cause the physical and emotional responses of stress and anxiety to the human body.
The human body is a remarkable machine that is designed to react and adjust to stress.
Stress is a normal part of life.
But when stress goes unchecked, it starts a chain reaction.
Physical distress signals, such as headaches, an upset stomach, elevated blood pressure, chest pain, or trouble sleeping, can lead to psychosomatic health illness and other negative consequences.
Frequent colds and infections, along with upset stomach, including diarrhea, constipation, and nausea are psychosomatic illnesses caused by stress.
When someone is faced continuously with headaches, insomnia, low energy, nervousness, and shaking or ringing in the ear, these negative physical distress signals affect the way we think, the way we feel, our behaviors, and our physical health.
No part of the human body is immune to these attacks.
At some point, we may become more physically sick, easily agitated, frustrated, and moody due to a buildup of stress. There is that feeling of being overwhelmed or losing control.
You know how it is when you’re stressed and overly sensitive and have difficulty relaxing and quieting your mind. Thoughts are running so quickly and sounding so loud to the point that it is difficult to concentrate. You are only focusing on feeling bad about yourself, including feelings of loneliness, worthlessness, and depression.
There is a tremendous feeling of self-pity and “woe is me.”
Can our thoughts make us sick and cause physical discomfort or pain against our will?
The answer – obviously — is yes.
Our thoughts and attitudes really do have a big impact your physical discomfort or pain.
Psychosomatic is a Greek word for psyche and is defined as an interaction of our emotions and other mental processes with physical factors that influence how our body performs.
So when you believe you are sick and experience actual body pains and aches, the root of your discomfort may be more mental, cognitive, and behavioral than physical
When you think you are sick, your psychosomatic discomfort is heightened or more severe.
What does hypnosis do for stress?
Hypnosis allows you to learn the skills to face life’s challenges by returning to a relaxed and deeply calm state.
Hording stress and anxiety in our body just causes more harm.
Learning how to control our emotional responses to anxiety so that we can achieve and keep that Zen-like calm only benefits you in achieving relief, calmness, and feelings of happiness and success.
Hypnosis allows you to learn the skills to respond to new ideas and to your world in a more beneficial way so that you can take more positive steps toward achieving your goal.
Hypnosis emphasizes the use of imagination, pictures, and imagery to fortify and implant appropriate suggestions to break bad habits that are counterintuitive to your goals and outcomes.
In a hypnotic state, a person is often more alert, aware, and focused than normal. A person hears and sees everything that is going around them. It’s about learning the skills of body relaxation, breathing exercises, and visualization to relax the nervous system.
Under hypnosis, suggestions are given to you so that you are able to control your behavior or remove a habit.
That’s why hypnosis is the best technique for weight loss, stop smoking, relief of anxiety, obtaining a good quality of sleep, and removal of fears and phobias.
Some people are skeptical at first but with everything they learn about themselves in their free screening… they aren’t skeptics long.
