When we are going through a difficult time, we tend to have more negative thoughts such as worry, frustration, anger etc. Negative thoughts generate stress hormones, where as positive thoughts: love, gratefulness, joy etc. generate positive hormones: these relax us and lift our mood. We need a mixture of both, especially to get through a busy or active day. Excessive stress hormones also affect our short-term memory, interfere with our ability to rationalize, causing ‘black and white thinking’, blocks production of the sleep hormone melatonin, and serotonin which lifts our mood and regulates our dream sleep. It also increases chronic pain and weakens our immune system. Most people assume that in order to balance these hormone levels they must ingest some type of pharmaceutical substance, that is the furthest thing from the truth. Depression is very overwhelming and debilitating when it enters our life, but for the vast majority, it is not a disease or permanent condition and importantly, with the right help, it can be lifted completely with just a few sessions . Cleansing the subconscious of these negative thoughts and inputting healthy positive thinking is the safest, healthiest and most powerful intervention available. Hypnotherapy is the key to your freedom.
