If you choose to become a Hypnotherapist you may decide that you want to specialise in helping people with autoimmune conditions. This months supervision is an introduction to Autoimmune, watch listen, read and research, ENJOY!
The list of autoimmune diseases is long and growing, and includes Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Graves' disease, type one diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease, multiple sclerosis, celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, eczema, psoriasis, even chronic Lyme disease, and some types of heart disease have recently been classified as autoimmune.
Symptoms range from frustrating to debilitating and may show up years before a diagnosis is made.
Profound fatigue, insomnia, brain fog, body aches and pains, numbness and tingling, hair loss, swelling, and stubborn extra weight, are among the most common complaints.
Hypnotherapy has been shown to be very successful in helping patients resolve allergy issues. Autoimmune diseases are very similar to allergies. Allergies involve an unacceptable immune response towards something external to our body such as food, a bee sting, or pollen. With an autoimmune disorder it's something within our body that causes an abnormal reaction in our immune system.
This reaction causes our immune system to attack or fight the body itself.
Deepak Chopra says that every thought, and every emotion you experience touches every single cell in your body.
So, what do you think happens to your body when you constantly feed it negative thoughts, well it probably experiences a negative emotional state, which then leads to either physical pain, illness, or discomfort?
One of the major contributors to inflammation and autoimmune disease is our emotional and mental wellbeing.
We need support our clients to reduce inflammatory lifestyle factors. Add in nourishing ones, balance health, make proactive choices, and breakdown transformation or change into actionable and manageable steps.
We can help our clients to reduce their toxic load of processed foods. We can advise them to remove toxic chemicals from their homes, and personal care products.
Most of all we can guide them in addressing toxic stress, encourage and support them to add the good stuff for example, eating real whole foods, prioritising sleep, and adapting easy daily relaxation practises.
In other words, we can support our clients to give their bodies, what their bodies need, and it will repair, restore and even thrive.
As hypnotherapists we have the keys to reversing autoimmune conditions helping our clients to reclaim their health.
Milton Erickson once said the subconscious mind is like a warehouse of resources. Most people go into the warehouse with a little flashlight rather than turning on all the lights.
In other words, we have a choice in what resources in our unconscious mind we want to use at any given time.
So why not use the ones that will empower us or heal us the most?
In this presentation today I'm going to focus on, listening to and working with, our body and how that strongly relates to the mind, and the use of hypnotherapy.
I’ll also include some basic information you can share with your clients to empower them on their healing journey.
