Hypnotherapy can’t erase Trauma, but it allows the client to use the information that is stored in the subconscious mind, in the physical body, and in the energy field to be processed, released, and transformed.
The client often feels a total lack of control over their mind and body, and with hypnotherapy and the multiple tools that it provides, the client takes back a sense of control.
Untreated Trauma leads to psychological and physical changes. If stuck in the body, it can manifest in physical illness (ex. Autoimmune), chronic pain, hypervigilance, problem sleeping or concentrating, etc.
The goal of Hypnotherapy is to restore the Self and its “parts” to become balanced and whole, and no longer to be held hostage by the past. After the Trauma, a sense of safety is lost, and Hypnotherapy helps to change that by calming down the limbic system, also known as emotional brain.
Many with Autoimmune disease would like to know why the immune system starts attacking their body rather than protecting it, or why people develop chronic illness(es) in general.
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study, conducted by CDC and Kaiser Permanente over two decades, linked the potentially traumatic events that occur in childhood (0-17 years) to chronic health problems, mental illness, substance abuse in adulthood, wellbeing, and opportunities in life.
Each type of trauma was assigned the score, and researchers found that the incidence of Autoimmune illnesses increased as the ACE scores rise, for each point by about 20%.
ACEs increase risk for other diseases also, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Fibromyalgia.
In conclusion, Trauma leaves mark on one’s nervous system, immune system, gene function and expression, etc.; thus, affecting negatively both physical and emotional health.
Understanding the science of Trauma and addressing its effects are necessary to help heal the symptoms of chronic diseases.
