Constipation can be particularly troublesome to deal with because there is a strong psychological component to it. That’s why hypnosis is often helpful. If you suffer from chronic or intermittent constipation, you may have noticed that stress and anxiety are contributing factors. Below we will discuss other causes, common solutions and why learning hypnosis may be the final answer. Further information and a special hypnosis session is also available on the Hypnosis Downloads page .
Being constipated affects your entire being – not just your gut. Your mood, the ability to concentrate and how you interact with others can be negatively impacted. You just feel miserable all over. That’s because your insides – from the stomach on down – reacts to emotions – especially anxiety and stress levels.
That’s why people say things like, “I have a knot in my stomach” or , “don’t get your guts in a wad.” The connection between what we think about and ailments such as ulcers and constipation is well documented. That’s why learning to relax and controlling your thoughts with hypnosis can be so helpful.
Constipation Basics and Stress
Hypnosis can relieve constipation on several levels. Constipation can be physically caused by not drinking enough water or not including enough fiber in your diet. Other causes may be prescription and over-the-counter medications. Taking certain health supplements, like calcium , can also cause constipation. A healthy diet and regular exercise can do wonders. Self Hypnosis can help you become more mindful of the physical causes of constipation while subconsciously you begin to make good choices for yourself.
Traveling or any event that brings changes to your regular schedule can bring on severe constipation issues. For example, getting busier than normal at work or having company staying with you at home can put your system out of sync. If you miss a ‘regular’ bowel movement, the next one could be harder to eliminate. If you miss two or three opportunities, the problem gets worse. Constipation creates more constipation. Maintaining a regular bowel movement schedule is important when it comes to preventing constipation.
For many people that suffer, their constipation problems can be linked to varying amounts of stress in their lives. The bowel muscles won’t work properly if you’re too tense. What makes matters worse is the anxiety caused by wondering if and when a successful bowel movement will happen. People that suffer from chronic constipation can become obsessed with finding the right place and time when they feel like the chances of success are best. Using self hypnosis you’ll be able to relax and ‘do your business’ anytime you have the opportunity.
A Bowell Movement Should Happen Unconsciously
You shouldn’t have to think about whether you’ll be able to have a movement or not. A bowel movement is suppose to happen naturally and unconsciously. But if you interfere with with the process by worrying about it, those conscious thoughts can actually prevent it from happening . It’s only when you’re able to relax and let go that you’ll get relief from constipation. By using self hypnosis, you’ll learn to control your thoughts and allow that unconscious bodily function to occur naturally.
Knowing that most constipation issues are really psychological, it’s easy to see how self hypnosis can be helpful. Self hypnosis is simply a state of mind that allows you to relax and control your thoughts. And that could be just what you need to relieve your chronic constipation.
You can learn how to use hypnosis by yourself, by researching and practicing various techniques or you can take the ‘fast track’ and learn from a professional hypnotist. Either way, self hypnosis is likely to be the answer to bring you relief from constipation.
