Causes of High Blood Pressure
Hypertension is called the silent killer. Blood pressure can increase without any symptoms and can cause a stroke or heart attack. Hypnotherapy for high blood pressure is very effective for all of the causes, hypnotherapy helps clients with high blood pressure deal with many of the factors that cause and maintain high blood pressure.
Clients that are diagnosed with high blood pressure are told to stop smoking, lose weight, reduce alcohol and reduce salt consumption, to increase exercise and reduce the effects of the stressors in their lives. For most people that is easier said than done. Hypnosis can help clients achieve these goals.
If you have high blood pressure you already know that to continue smoking is like pointing a loaded gun at your head. Certified Hypnotists can tackle the most common emotional and lifestyle factors in an easy and fun way.
The reason hypnosis for high blood pressure works is because we use the power of your subconscious mind to change your thinking processes, making it very easy to stop. Normally people will use their will power to try to stop. This creates irritability, mood swings, bad temper, cravings and possible weight gain. Hypnosis is proven to be the best method of Stopping Smoking by New Scientist magazine. Their findings were the result of an in-depth study of all methods used to stopping smoking.
It looks at lifestyle factors such as:
- Childhood events
- Social beliefs and expectations
- Conditioning and traumatic events
- Releasing inappropriate beliefs
- Family pressures
Stress is the number 1 cause of disease. It is triggered by an event or episode. Hypnotherapy teaches you to learn to recognize your stress triggers, and then you can learn to introduce new, alternative behaviors when you start to experience a stress trigger, thereby stopping the cycle of building triggers that contribute to high stress. While in the hypnotic state you are able to see alternative perspectives and behaviors in stressful situations. You can learn to reprogram your thoughts and actions while in a trance state to help you develop new behavior in the waking conscious state. Continue reading →
Why do this?
- Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
- Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.
The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.
To help you get started, here are a few questions:
- Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
- What topics do you think you’ll write about?
- Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
- If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?
You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.
Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.
When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
