Autoimmune Disease Facts
Autoimmune diseases affect the health of many men and women. What can you use as autoimmune disease treatment?

The numbers are truly shocking. “Autoimmune disease affects up to 50 million Americans, according to the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA). An autoimmune disease develops when your immune system, which defends your body against disease, decides your healthy cells are foreign. As a result, your immune system attacks healthy cells. Depending on the type, an autoimmune disease can affect one or many different types of body tissue. It can also cause abnormal organ growth and changes in organ function” http://www.healthline.com/health/autoimmune-disorders#Overview1
Autoimmune diseases are the ultimate mind-body connection gone wrong. How is it that the immune system does not recognize right from wrong? Is there something we can do to make our immune system see our cells as ours and protect them? There is.
Autoimmune disease and stress
We know that there is a very strong element of stress in relation to the exacerbation of autoimmune disease and this further makes autoimmune disease treatment with Hypnosis in Boca Raton such an effective tool to help those who suffer.
The connection between stress and autoimmune disease was established already in the 1960’s.
“George Solomon (1964,1968,1974,1981) of Stanford University was the first American physician who studied the interaction between the mind and the immune system. Solomon was working in the 1960’s treating patients with rheumatoid arthritis and he observed that these patients would typically enter into a relapse during stressful times in their lives. He hypothesized that the immune system must be somehow triggered to attack the patient’s joints during times of stress. He then hypothesized that our immune system must be very sensitive to stress and responsive to emotions and thoughts”
It was proven time and again that hypnosis for stress is very beneficial. Certainly this aspect of hypnosis is a crucial component of autoimmune disease treatment. If you reduced stress you reduce this dysfunctional immune response and therefor reduce symptoms and reduce flare-ups. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20136382
When People Suffering from the Autoimmune Disorder
When suffering from autoimmune disorder the person must deal with the stress of the illness and the physical symptoms that it produces. To add insult to injury, often the medications taken for the illness come with a list of side effects that certainly do not make life easy, even when they are a must.

Can you enlist your mind to work for you?
You certainly can. Autoimmune Disease Treatment with Hypnosis in Boca Raton counts on exactly that. Harnessing the power of your mind to bring you healing and comfort.
“Rossi (1986, 1988, 1990, 1993) has written extensively regarding the various mechanisms by which the mind communicates with the immune system and how the use of hypnosis may help as a therapeutic aid in the recovery of patients suffering from autoimmune disorders. According to Rossi, when patients shift into a state of hypnosis, we can communicate with the unconscious mind and speak directly to tissues and cells by using the language of imagery with all five senses. In addition, other well known methods such as cognitive re- framing, re-labeling and re-organizing the mind-body communication can be utilized to benefit patients and promote healing.” http://www.redorbit.com/news/health/1174128/mindbody_hypnotic_imagery_in_the_treatment_of_autoimmune_disorders/#Wir0lA51YYbeq4BQ.99
