Hypnosis is a highly effective method to address addictions.
Addiction has long been understood to mean an uncontrollable habit of using alcohol or other drugs. Due to the physical effects of these substances on the body, and particularly the brain, people have often thought that “real” addictions only happen when people regularly use these substances in large amounts.
In more recent years experts have come to realize that people can also develop addictions to behaviors, such as gambling, eating, smoking and exercise.
What most addictions have in common is that the person doing them finds them pleasurable in some way. Addictions tend to temporarily raise the serotonin level (the feel good hormone) so the feeling of satisfaction often accompanies partaking of the addictive substance.
Unfortunately the feeling doesn’t last and the craving or need to indulge quickly returns.
Addiction in America
Addictions can be effectively addressed using hypnosis through permanently changing unhealthy habits, patterns and behaviors. Often addicts have the feeling they can’t live without the substance or behavior they are addicted to.
This distorted thinking can also be altered through using hypnosis.
Over 23 million Americans are addicted to some type of substance — and many are addicted to more than one substance. The majority of those addicted, 18million, are addicted to alcohol. It is estimated that 14.8 million Americans use illicit drugs.
It is not uncommon for those addicted to alcohol to also have a drug problem.
Hypnosis can give those who are addicted relief from the substance and from the behaviors that result from those addictions.
Addiction and hypnosis
Some people who suffer from social anxiety, stress-related disorders and depression develop addictions in an attempt to feel less distress.
Stress also plays a role in many addictions and using hypnosis you will learn to manage your stress, anxiety, frustration and other symptoms of addictions. Often other behaviors or thought patterns develop from the addiction and hypnosis can be used to change these unhealthy behaviors.
Learn new ways of thinking and new skills that you can use for the rest of your life.
Many adults with addictions continue to struggle with uncomfortable or traumatic childhood experiences. Addictions are clearly a form of self-medicating to relieve one’s self of psychological or physical pain. Through hypnosis you will be able to explore those past times in order to be free of the restrictions, blocks and hesitations you experience.
You will be able to see changes in your habits, behaviors and patterns as you heal from the past including all the attached emotions.
Hypnosis combined with brainwave entrainment technology recordings is a winning formula for success in overcoming addictions.
For addicts ready to live a more fulfilling life and reach their greatest potential they can use hypnosis as a treatment method. Hypnosis has proven successful for many addicts and completely changes their lives for the better.
