Did you know that mindfulness meditation techniques may relieve chronic inflammation? I’ve been using and teaching mindfulness hypnosis for inflammation resulting from autoimmune diseases for several years in my Seattle hypnosis and Bainbridge Island hypnosis offices and now in Palm Desert. I have witnessed the power of mindful meditation with many medical hypnosis clients. I personally have experienced the power of hypnosis mindfulness. I suffered with the swollen joints resulting from rheumatoid arthritis. Today, thanks to mindfulness hypnosis, I no longer experience the symptoms of chronic inflammation.
Mindfulness Meditation May Relieve
Source Newsroom: University of Wisconsin-Madison, Newswise, January 16, 2013: People suffering from chronic inflammatory conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and asthma — in which psychological stress plays a major role — may benefit from mindfulness meditation techniques, according to a study by University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Mindfulness-based stress reduction, originally designed for patients with chronic pain, consists of continuously focusing attention on the breath, bodily sensations and mental content while seated, walking or practicing yoga.
A class in stress reduction can be beneficial in many ways, some of which have little to do with mindfulness.
The results show that behavioral interventions designed to reduce emotional reactivity are beneficial to people suffering from chronic inflammatory conditions.
The study also suggests that mindfulness techniques may be more effective in relieving inflammatory symptoms than other activities that promote well-being.
This is not a cure-all, but our study does show that there are specific ways that mindfulness can be beneficial, and that there are specific people who may be more likely to benefit from this approach than other interventions.
Significant portions of the population do not benefit from available pharmaceutical treatment options, for example. Some of these patients suffer from negative side effects of the drugs, or simply do not respond to the standard-of-care for treatment of the disorder.
The mindfulness-based approach to stress reduction may offer a lower-cost alternative or complement to standard treatment, and it can be practiced easily by patients in their own homes, whenever they need.
Mindfulness stress reduction can help you be easy and relaxed throughout the day. Mindfulness hypnosis can indeed improve the function of specific parts of the immune system. Resistance to disease can go up, reaction to allergens can go down, and autoimmune attack can be stopped using relaxation and specific imagery designed to reprogram the immune system.
