Holistic Pain Relief
When you are in pain, then there definitely is one thing that you want: you want it to end. But heavy duty pharmaceutical pain killers often come with many negative side-effects. That is why holistic pain relief is becoming a more and more popular option nowadays.
Let’s look at what pain relief drugs actually do. It’s not that the substances in the drugs actually to not feel the pain anymore – but instead, it is your brains reaction to the substances. The drugs are basically a mechanism that triggers a certain reaction in your brain that causes the cessation of pain. Now the interesting question is: are there other ways to trigger such a reaction in your brain than pharmaceutical drugs?
The answer is: yes.
Your own body’s innate healing ability is remarkable. And it’s there, just waiting for you to activate it. The problem is just: we don’t know how to do it, because there are so many different factors to the equation. Healing is a process that isn’t conscious – it’s something that your subconscious mind is in charge of.
But does that mean drug free pain treatments aren’t feasible? No, not at all. While among general practitioners there is still a lot of sceptizism around this topic, pain most specialists already know about the power of holistic pain management and utilize it with their patients.
One of the best natural pain treatments that has emerged in recent years is hypnosis. This of course is not at all related to stage hypnosis, where men and women are “hypnotized” for the amusement of the audience, and often perform ridiculous acts on stage. Medical hypnosis for pain management is very different, and it is important that you are aware of this difference.
You can leverage your brains remarkable power to heal by simply listening to hypnotic suggestions in a relaxed state of mind. Conventional medical treatments are often invasive. Medical hypnosis however can be very beneficial for both acute and chronic pain management. Some kinds of pain require specific hypnotic suggestions – for example, myofascial pain or arthritis pain – but most pain can be relieved through general anti-pain suggestions.
It’s all right to be skeptical. You’ve probably already tried a lot and can’t imagine that just listening to someone’s words can help you to get rid of your pain. I’m not asking you to believe anything. All I’m asking you is to give it a try. It has worked for thousands of people, and there’s no reason why it won’t work for you. Even if you don’t believe in it – if you just try it, you will experience the effects yourself. And you have nothing to loose, because it’s risk free.
Did you know? Opiods are very effective pain killers, but they are also prone to abuse. Even if you aren’t someone who has a history or tendency of substance abuse! Overdoses from prescription painkillers are now one of the leading causes of accidental death in the United States!
