As a Medical Hypnotherapist I have witnessed the power of hypnosis to help you to mend faster and better after surgery and other medical procedures. In my Seattle hypnosis, Bainbridge hypnosis and online via Skype, I teach people medical meditation. If you are preparing for a medical procedure or are living with a healthy crisis like cancer, learn self hypnosis and other mindfulness techniques to help you to reduce stress and anxiety, boost your immune system and control pain.
Mend Faster And Better After Surgery
Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan, by Michael Roizen, M.D. and Mehmet Oz, M.D., July 28, 2013: Scheduled for surgery? You’re no doubt thinking hard about what to do before and after to support optimal healing. Just in time, a series of good-news reports reveal that simple steps at home — and with your doctor’s help — can slash infection risk, bolster immunity, reduce pain and help you recover better.
Relaxing before your procedure. It can reduce pain and the amount of pain medication you need by 36 percent. That, in turn, can help you heal faster. We like progressive muscle relaxation and breathing exercises that tame tension by focusing your attention on each slow, easy inhalation and exhalation. Try doing it in the days and hours before surgery to reduce levels of stress hormones and cool post-surgery inflammation; you’ll heal more quickly.
Try guided imagery after surgery. Use your imagination to picture oxygen and nutrients infusing wellness and healing throughout your internal repair zone, including the skin. It’s been proven to help people achieve good knee stability after joint surgery, boost levels of skin-mending collagen after gallbladder removal and reduce pain after heart valve and other cardiac operations.
Eat right, exercise regularly. Every cell in your body is made from the foods you eat, so give it the building blocks it’ll need for healing: five to nine servings of fruits and veggies a day and 100 percent whole grains. Also, cut back on foods packed with saturated fat. Eating a diet that’s low in fat, with no sugar or syrup added and that has only 100 percent whole grains can lessen inflammation after surgery, helping you heal faster. Add 30 minutes of daily walking, proven to keep immunity strong. Can’t walk? Upper-body exercises, using bands or an arm cycle and chair-based exercise can do the trick for you.
Are you putting off oral surgery? Do you need a joint replacement? Medical hypnosis help is available for you. Studies show that during surgery, that hypnotized women required 22% less analgesia and 34% less sedation. After surgery, they reported 53% less pain intensity, 46% less fatigue, 47% less discomfort, and 74% less emotional upset. Learn self hypnosis to picture oxygen and nutrients infusing wellness and healing throughout your internal repair zone.
