Self-hypnosis is an effective approach to self-healing. Your personal journey to heal yourself through the treatment plan developed by your physician can include medicine and hypnosis to support you. These complementary approaches touch upon every aspect of the curative process.
How Hypnosis Works
Hypnosis guides you to put yourself in a receptive state of mind. You are not unconscious or unaware of your session and you have complete control. The process helps you develop new attitudes about your illness, focusing on recovery instead of the symptoms. This self-healing support is ideal when you use it in conjunction with your medical doctor's advice.
Following the Doctor's Orders
Often times, we fail to get better during an illness because we fail to follow the doctor's orders. This is especially true if the instructions involve serious changes in habits and daily lifestyle. You can overcome your habits and adopt healthy routines using hypnosis.
The subconscious mind is the habit center of the brain. Sometimes you simply go through the motions without thinking about what you are doing. These automatic behaviors can be very good for you like automatically going out for a stroll after dinner. They can also be very bad for you like lighting up a cigarette after your meal.
Self-hypnosis can help you replace your bad habits with healthy ones without having the internal struggle you normally have when you try to change your routine. This is because the subconscious mind is driving you to follow the same pattern. It can be reprogrammed to follow a healthy pattern.
Making Medicine Work Better
Hypnosis can help your body relax and organize itself enough to allow medication to work better. When you are angry and panicked your body send off hormones. The imbalance can affect how well medicine works on your condition. Limiting these emotions creates balance in your system.
Your mind and your body are closely linked. Your thoughts and emotions have physical ramifications on your system. When your thinking process leads to negative emotions, you feel it in your body through natural physical responses.
On the other hand, when you focus your thoughts on self healing, you begin to develop curative feelings. You are better able to cope with your condition because you are calm and focused on recovery rather than illness. This creates a proactive energy that is therapeutic.
Self Healing in the Mind and Body
Just as your mind can create an exotic feelings that produce negative sensations in your body, it can also create curative thoughts that have a self healing effect in your physical realm. The focus shift is difficult to do on a conscious level.
The easiest way to use your thought processes to create curative thoughts and emotions is to use the subconscious mind. Hypnosis helps you reach a state that provides a direct link to your subconscious. You are receptive to the suggestions that foster curing images and thoughts.
This leads to the profound belief that you will overcome your illness. Your body responds by feeling better and you emotional state is more relaxed. Self healing is possible if you use your head.
