Autoimmune Diseases: Taming the Chronic Illness Monster
The most common cause of all diseases in the world today is autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases are currently ranked as the third biggest disease category in the US behind heart disease and cancer. Overall, autoimmune diseases are common, affecting more than 23.5 million Americans. They are a leading cause of death and disability in the world.
Auto-immune diseases result when our natural protective mechanisms either go on strike or become confused and disoriented. The incidence of auto-immune diseases is rising rapidly in the general population and conventional medicine has little to offer those afflicted. However, hypnotherapy can not only easy the burden of symptom management but, in many cases, it can eliminate the disease markers from the body. Learn what common illnesses are immune based and how to use the unconscious mind to re-educate the body to function normally again.
IBS and Hypnotherapy
IBS strikes 1 out of 3 adult women and 1 out of 5 people in the general population. And, it is on the rise among teenagers. While this is not a life threatening condition, it is life changing. The best conventional medicine has been able to do is to offer 25% of sufferers relief as long as they take their medications. When they stop those medications their symptoms return, sometimes worse than they were originally. However, this hypnotic program reverses the symptoms in 86% of people in only 6 sessions. And, the symptoms do not return when the sessions end. If you are seeing women for weight loss, you are already seeing IBS clients. And, physicians are eager to refer these clients to you. Learn how to do this therapy for your clients.
