Meditation, hypnosis and other mindfulness techniques are proving to be effective in the treatment of PTS. Post-traumatic stress is a severe anxiety disorder with characteristic symptoms that can develop after the direct experience of an extremely traumatic stressor such as the threat of a violent death or serious injury. Symptoms of post-traumatic stress can be terrifying. They may disrupt your life and make it hard to continue with your daily activities. It may be hard just to get through the day. Mind-body interventions like hypnosis and meditation can help to regulate stress hormone levels and help control anxiety. Learn hypnosis and take control of your thoughts and emotions.
Meditation, Stretching Ease PTSD Symptoms in Nurses
Newswise, May 28, 2013: Practicing a form of meditation and stretching can help relieve symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and normalize stress hormone levels, according to a recent study accepted for publication in The Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism (JCEM).
“Mind-body exercise offers a low-cost approach that could be used as a complement to traditional psychotherapy or drug treatments,” said the study’s lead author, Sang H. Kim, PhD, of the National Institutes of Health. “These self-directed practices give PTSD patients control over their own treatment and have few side effects.”
“Participants in the mind-body intervention reported that not only did the mind-body exercises reduce the impact of stress on their daily lives, but they also slept better, felt calmer and were motivated to resume hobbies and other enjoyable activities they had dropped,”
Last week I wrote that “Just two weeks of mindfulness meditation results in positive changes in your brain. Quite literally, sustained meditation leads to something called neuroplasticity, which is defined as the brain’s ability to change, structurally and functionally, on the basis of environmental input.”
Hypnosis is an evidence-based, mind-body modality that aids in a variety of health issues and is congruent with current research in brain plasticity and psychoneuroimmunology. When used in cooperation with traditional Western medicine treatments, as part of an overall approach to promote well being, hypnosis can help you help yourself. Learn hypnosis and help yourself.
