Raise your hand if you’ve experienced either one of the following health and wellness problems: Stress, anxiety, weight gain, gastro-intestinal distress, insomnia, allergies, aches, smoking addiction.
Chances are you raised your hand for at least one of these problems. Stress and anxiety are problems we all face on a nearly daily basis and the other issues listed are common in the population as well. And if you’re like many U.S. adults, you’ve probably tried pills, patches, lifestyle changes and countless other methods to tackle these issues, but did you know there is actually one ancient remedy that can cure all of these?
First practiced by an Austrian doctor back in the 1700s, hypnotherapy has recently made its way into western medicine with the backing of numerous studies touting its benefits. But how exactly is hypnotherapy administered?
Hypnotherapists use exercises that bring about deep relaxation and an altered state of consciousness, also known as a trance. A person in a deeply focused state is unusually responsive to an idea or image, but this does not mean that a hypnotist can control the person’s mind and free will. On the contrary, hypnosis can actually teach people how to master their own states of awareness. By doing so they can affect their own […] functions and psychological responses.
In short, the practicing hypnotherapist helps guide you to change your behavior as well as your bodily functions.
It might sound like a bunch of wacko talk but as stated above, U.S. studies as well as the National Institutes of Health have given the method the green light. Even starlets such as Ellen DeGeneres and Drew Barrymore give credit to the treatment for helping them kick their smoking habits.
Wanna try it for yourself? You will most likely need multiple sessions, each of which cost between $125 to $200, although it is often covered by insurance.
