We live in an era where stress has become a norm, whether it’s work-related, money-related or family-related. These are just a few of the more common stressors. The list is endless and can lead to a number of mental and physical ‘’dis-ease”.
With the growing demands of everyday life, there is an ever-increasing number of stressors. As a result of the increasing number of stressors, there is an increasing number and incidence of stress-related illnesses. Examples of stress-related illnesses are anxiety, panic attacks, depression, high blood pressure, diabetes, gastrointestinal problems, heart disease, asthma, etc.
In addition to creating illnesses, stress also exacerbates existing illnesses due to the fact that stress causes certain hormones (adrenaline and cortisol) to be released that, over time, lead to inflammation and the lowering of the immune system. Thus, stress causes a multitude of problems either directly or indirectly and, like stress, most of these problems and illnesses are accepted as a normal course of events.
Herein lies the true irony. Every individual is born with a natural ability to diffuse stress and thereby prevent the onset of many illnesses. The state of hypnosis is a state that engages the relaxation response and thus prevents or diffuses the state of stress and consequently brings the body back to a state of homeostasis and well-being. Since hypnosis is a natural state and a safe state that is built-in mechanism for combating an illness-inducing state, shouldn’t this be the norm rather than the exception?
Don’t be among those who believe that expensive treatment is the only solution to your problems. Remember, money hasn’t always been around to buy good health. The state of hypnosis has been around for as long as mankind has been in existence. It is such a natural state, that we pass through it several times a day without even noticing it. It is like the automatic cut-off mechanism that is built in machines to ensure that the motor of a machine does not burn out, and the machine operates optimally.
So, isn’t it time that you rewired your brain to understand relaxation as the norm rather than stress and take full advantage of the relaxation benefits of the truly valuable state of hypnosis – your own cut-off mechanism to prevent burnout and ensure optimal functioning? Yes, the state of hypnosis is your own natural antidote to stress, and it is your answer to making relaxation the norm!
