Hypnosis and Pain Relief
Pain control is one of the biggest issues that contribute to a good quality of life, especially for people who suffer from chronic health problems. In fact, unaddressed pain can be literally unbearable for people who are unable to find relief.
The problem with pain medication is that it is really only effective for acute, short-term pain. In the long run, the body builds up tolerance to narcotic pain killers, so that you need a larger dosage in order to achieve the same level of pain control.
It used to be believed that it was impossible to become addicted to pain medication when it was used for legitimate pain management, but we now know that this is not the case. Many people live in pain, simply because they are afraid of the long term implications of using medication.
How Hypnosis Is Different From Meditation
Although it has been around for hundreds of years, hypnosis is still viewed by many people with skepticism and mistrust. Part of the problem lies with the fact that in our culture, hypnosis has primarily been used as an entertainment medium – and this is the enduring image of hypnosis that sticks with most of us.
We have all seen those bizarre images of people behaving in peculiar and undignified manner on stage. However, we forget that participants in a hypnosis show for entertainment purposes are hand-picked by the hypnotist for their love of performing in front of a crowd. No one can be made to do anything while in a hypnotic trance, that they would not ordinarily be comfortable doing anyway.
Which brings us back to the original question of how hypnosis is different from meditation. Unlike hypnosis, meditation has a much more conventional following, although it was not always that way. Nowadays, meditation is a popular practice for relaxation purposes.
How I Lost Weight Using The Gastric Band Hypnosis
I want to tell you my story because I feel it is so important that other men and women learn about this wonderful new technique that is available to help them lose weight. No, this is not a gimmick, nor does it involve unhealthy starvation diets or pills. Thanks to gastric band hypnosis, I have been able to lose close to half my body weight, simply by using the healing power of my subconscious mind to guide me towards healthier eating habits.
My name is Gladys, and a year ago I weighed over 300 pounds. Not only did I look terrible, but I felt bad as well. I have a small frame, and the excess weight was literally killing me. I found myself out of breath simply from walking across the room, or by climbing a flight of stairs.
My joints ached, and the skin on the inside of my thighs was red and raw from the friction created when I moved my enormous body. I put my back out several times due to my obesity – leaving me bed ridden for weeks at a time. I felt a mess, and my appearance and state of mind reflected this.
Anxiety and Hypnosis
Anxiety is one of the most common conditions nowadays – probably in part due to our stress filled lives filled with overwhelming responsibility and long hours of work. Although most of us have experienced brief episodes of nervous tension and worry, anxiety is more problematic.
Not only are the symptoms of anxiety unpleasant and disabling, but the condition itself can serve as a pathway to other more serious physical and psychological conditions. Constant anxiety never allows the body to return to its normal functioning state.
As such, it is important that anxiety is treated, and not left to inflict ongoing damage. Some of the unwanted physical effects of anxiety include a weakened immune system, digestive disorders, headaches, muscle tension, and insomnia.
Lately, there has been a lot of emphasis on positivity – the human practice of being positive. For the most part, this is a very good thing. Very few of us would advocate going around with a large, black cloud hanging over our heads.
On the other hand, unbridled positivity can become a bit of a problem, if it is used to cover up useful emotions that help us connect with how we are truly feeling inside.
Sooner or later, we will all explode if we bottle up our feelings without first processing them. In order to be genuinely happy, and true to our authentic selves, we need to understand that our responses to present day events are inextricably linked to the way we have emotionally interpreted the past.
