Podcast 12: Manage psoriasis and eczema with hypnotherapy. Looking at how hypnotherapy can help you manage the symptoms of psoriasis and eczema with suggestions to reduce the amount of discomfort and disruption these cause. There will also be a free hypnotherapy audio at the end of this podcast that you can enjoy, keep and come back to time and time again.
Stress causes a strain on the immune system, short term stress can boost the immune system but long term stress causes a fatigue – this stress on your immune system can cause an outbreak of psoriasis or eczema.
Do you find you experience a flare up of psoriasis or eczema when you’re under pressure? When you have a lot to get done or when an unexpected stress or drama in your life pops up?
Hypnotherapy can be used in many different ways to reduce stress and to help build coping strategies to deal with the challenges you face on a daily basis. Hypnotherapy can also be used to boost your confidence and self esteem, it's common to need a bit of a boost if you’ve felt self conscious about past flare ups of psoriasis or eczema.
Hypnotherapy can also be used to challenge subconscious limiting behaviours – not wearing certain things, or always wearing a cardigan or jumper. Maybe you avoid doing things like swimming or going out with friends. Is there anything you can think of that you avoid if you have had a flare up in the past?
During the hypnosis trance we can use direct and indirect suggestions to help you heal your skin and stop the problem coming back as regularly as it might have in the past.
Today’s podcast will include suggestions that are directed at healing and soothing your skin. We will go for a walk in a sunny field and then take a dip in a cooling pool so if these are things that cause a flare up for you, you might want to follow the relaxation but just don’t go in the water and make sure you think about yourself as covered up in the sun during the relaxation.
There are numerous techniques that can help you manage psoriasis or eczema so if you find you need more help visit www.altptherapies.co.uk to have a bespoke recording made for you with your challenges in mind.
