Hypnosis For Nervous System Disorders
The brain is a complex and wondrous organ that benefits us greatly, as long as it is working well. Truly, this central command center is exceptional, but nervous system disorders can threaten its optimum functionality. Nervous system disorders can disrupt our lives in minor or major ways. The barely noticeable symptoms signaling the beginning of cognitive decline may be considered a natural part of aging, but may soon develop into to life-debilitating illnesses such as Parkinson’s Disease or Alzheimer’s Disease. At times we are faced with a system that is over responsive. This can manifest as tics, spasms and twitches.
You can read more about using hypnotherapy to address nervous system disorders in this chapter from the Handbook Of Clinical Neurology
Here is the story of Amanda.
Amanda’s mother passed away from ALS. Her illness started with muscle twitches and spasms and when Amanda started experiencing the same symptoms, of course she panicked. Amanda’s physician referred her to me after all the testing showed no abnormality, and therefore, there were no treatment options available to her.
Nervous System Disorders and The Power Of The Mind
You might not realize how powerful your mind is, yet it is exceptionally powerful.
You may take a look at your own life and notice that if you just imagine a situation you experienced, or a place you visited, you can have a clear vision of it, completed with taste, smells and emotions. Just think of something you love to eat and imagine eating it and notice the sensations in your mouth and the feeling it may bring. This is you providing “suggestions” to your own mind.
In Clinical Hypnotherapy, the hypnotherapist provides suggestions for your mind that when accepted create true transformation.
In this way, hypnotherapy can be remarkably helpful for nervous system disorders. It can be an adjunct therapy for what conventional medicine has to offer, or act as an aid when there are no solutions from conventional medicine. The treatment of the symptoms themselves as well as the anxiety associated with them is very effective.
