healthcare costs money

Hypnosis Can Reduce Your Healthcare Costs, Here’s How:

According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the average American spends $12,530 per year on healthcare expenses. Dr. Herbert Benson of the Mind/Body Institute at Harvard Medical School reports that emotional trauma and stress account for an estimated 90% of all doctor’s office visits. That’s incredible to believe, but not surprisingly when we dig deeper into this.

Stress impacts our bodies, not only emotionally, but if unmanaged, can result in physical symptoms. What if there was a way to combat that: reduce stress  reduce doctor’s visits  reduce overall out of pocket expenditures?

It’s an extremely hot topic to talk about stress management, especially in the context of recent world events. Everyone is facing stress in some capacity and at the extreme end, many are facing severe burnout and debilitating physical symptoms like pain, migraines, anxiety, or depression. The problem is that most methods of stress management are either too time consuming or just not sustainable practices. 

What if we actually addressed the root cause that makes life feel so unmanageable to knock stress out before it can rise to the surface? This is where hypnosis comes in. Here me out. When we talk about the physical response of stress, there is a cascade of chemical reactions that occur in the body. This is great for acute stress (like being chased by a lion) where we can get a surge of energy and focus, but not great when our body remains constantly in the fight or flight mode. This is when illness erupts due to chronic inflammation and the inability of our bodies to be calmed. 

Hypnosis addresses the root cause of WHY we go into fight or flight and stay there. We have a perception of imminent danger when we’re in this elevated state, but we’re not truly in a life or death situation. Life just feels unmanageable but our subconscious minds cannot discern an actual threat from a perceived threat. Many of our reactions stem from situations that we have no conscious awareness of. Through hypnosis, we can access the subconscious mind where all of those old stories and beliefs are. Often times, these events occur before the age 5. Thereby we have little to no recollection of the event that gave us a belief that the world is a scary, dangerous place, or that we’re somehow not safe or secure. By addressing the internal, deep beliefs we hold, we can shift the narrative to a more productive one and reframe how we experience life, so that we can be empowered to move forward without these unconscious blocks. 

Stress happens, but it doesn’t have to disable us. When our systems are calmed, we can rationally acknowledge a stressor, but not get attached to it. We acknowledge its presence and have the tools to see it as something we can manage. Change is inevitable in life, but people who are triggered by this often see change as a threat to their security and safety. If we calm the reaction and become reflective in nature, our systems will not go into overdrive. Thereby we won’t be stuck in fight or flight. This will reduce, if not eliminate, the aforementioned issues caused directly by stress. Now when that’s the case, the need for healthcare reduces greatly because self-hypnosis can be  used anytime to calm the body. (Now, let’s be reasonable, if you break a leg or get in a car accident, a doctor is your best bet. There is a time and place for traditional healthcare, specifically in emergency situations.)

There is an initial cost in working 1:1 with someone trained in hypnosis. However, when you consider the many thousands of dollars spent each year on stress-induced illnesses, the cost of hypnosis is a drop in the bucket. Herein lies the beauty of hypnosis, if done by the proper Certified Hypnotist, individuals can experience success in under 2 months without the need for future visits (unless you desire to do so) and have this tool for a lifetime. Myself or another trained hypnotist can work 1:1 with you to resolve the underlying issues and then teach you self-hypnosis so you can be empowered to take back control of your life.
