Orlando Hypnosis for Migraine Relief
Suffering regular migraines can put a serious damper on your enjoyment of life. Dealing with the painful symptoms, such as nausea, light sensitivity, and vomiting, on top of a persistent headache is difficult, even with pain remedies and anti-nausea medications. Migraines seem to come from nowhere, but they can actually be predicted and prevented.
Sometimes, what seems like a sudden and abrupt migraine headache is actually the result of something that triggers it. Some of the most widely seen triggers of migraines include stress, changes in sleep patterns, hormonal changes, diet, changes in the surrounding environment, and medication. Migraines can last between 4 hours and three days, but how often they occur can vary from person to person. It may seem as though migraines are impossible to reliably treat since they are capable of pounding through the respite that typical over the counter remedies provide. However, relief for migraines is available through hypnosis.
This is because the bottom line is that the mind is the principal cause of a migraine. The body simply acts as external evidence of what is going on internally. Therefore, working with the mind to find and change the reasons that are causing the body to react in this fashion only makes sense. While the mind and body connection may seem more mystical than scientific, an increasing amount of medical data supports the validity of hypnosis.
A study, Review of the efficacy of clinical hypnosis with migraines, outlines more about how hypnosis can be successful in treating migraines. Some of its benefits include not having any side effects and a surprising decrease in the intensity and frequency of migraine headaches in people who receive hypnosis treatments.
While medicine has yet to come up with a foolproof reason why some people get migraines and others don’t, there is a body of research that suggests hypnotherapeutic approaches are very useful in their treatment. One year-long study compared the effect of hypnotherapy against the prescription medication prochlorperazine (Stemetil). Those who received hypnotherapy reported far fewer migraine attacks compared to those who used the medication. Half the participants who received hypnotherapy completely eliminated migraines. Hypnotherapy can also help migraine sufferers avoid migraine triggers by helping them control stress and avoid certain foods.
Most migraine sufferers are familiar with the symptoms that precede an attack coming on. This is a great first step in identifying the unique triggers that he or she is experiencing. When you and your hypnotherapist establish exactly what a migraine is specifically to you, including what triggers them, and the symptoms that precede an attack happening, hypnotherapy can be used to have control over the body’s functions and responses.
