Hypnotherapy is a proven, natural and effective method to harness the healing properties of the mind. Using the power of the subconscious mind, it replaces negative thoughts with positive, life-changing thought patterns.
“Sleep disturbances, weight gain, digestive problems, anxiety and memory/concentration problems are just a few signs of chronic stress. Chronic stress is caused by worry, fear and life’s daily demands on the limited resources of time, attention and finances. The stress response is an automatic survival mechanism built into the brain,” says Thompson. “Unfortunately, chronic stress pushes this stress response into hyper-drive, triggering abnormal levels of cortisol, which leads to organ damage and aging. Living in this constant survival mode is the underlying cause of disease and premature death.”
When stress is reduced, the mind/body pathway reduces cortisol levels, stops the damage and brings the body back to a healthy balance. This balance allows the body to heal itself. New research and technologies also demonstrate the power of the mind to facilitate this process.
