Hypnotherapy for Fatigue

Whether you have general tiredness, exhausted stress response, longer-term insomnia or even Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), hypnotherapy and NLP can help.

The body is able to deal with stress by responding to threat or challenge with heightened cortisol levels, and then to gradually dissipate the excess cortisol as the challenge diminishes. However the body’s ability to deal with stress and danger is limited, that it reaches exhaustion at some point and begins to shut down. In integrative medicine it might be called adrenal fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, or fibromyalgia.

Any level of ongoing fatigue can be related a persons gene's and their susceptibility to viral infection, stress, depression and or major life events which could act as a trigger for CFS to develop in more susceptible individuals.

Viral infections such as glandular fever, which is something that occurs in many sufferers of long-term fatigue. Genetics are also thought to play a role, with CFS commonly appearing in more than one member of the same family.

More commonly, fatigue is caused by short-term exhaustion, mental stress, depression and traumatic events.

One of the worse things about fatigue is that many people have difficulty accepting the condition as genuine. You may be made to feel that your fatigue is imagined, that you are lazy or unmotivated.

Fatigue is often a signal that some area in your life needs more attention. For example, if I have a relationship that is draining my energy, do I blame the fatigue or the relationship? You can deal with the issues in the relationship directly, or move yourself away from the stress. In either case, the drained energy is the signal to make a change.

Certain factors can even heighten fatigue and if you are experiencing even mild sleeplessness, you should try and avoid stress, environmental pollution, unhealthy eating, not being active enough, and viral and bacterial infections.

You CAN heal yourself of fatigue by putting yourself in the best environment possible for healing. Give your body the optimal conditions and you will stimulate natural health, healing and energy. With these steps you can heal on purpose, not by accident.

Of course, life tends to get in the way and many busy people don’t have as much control over these factors as we’d like.

Aside from standard medications there are alternative and complementary therapies available to relieve fatigue.

Hypnotherapy is a valuable tool to use in helping people to gain clarity about why they react to certain situations as stressful, which translates into more conscious choice about how to deal with those situations. Hypnotherapy also provides direct access to the unconscious mind’s regulation of the nervous system and the endocrine system.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and hypnotherapy can be used in conjunction with medication to help address contributing factors such as self-esteem, past drug use, poor diet, stress, motivation, self-directed anger, depression and the memory of a trauma.

NLP and hypnotherapy work in a way which will help you to understand and identify factors which could influence and heighten fatigue, and therefore help you to resolve any internal conflict, relationship issues and whatever other underlying issues there may be in order to clear the mind of negative emotions.
