Migraine Headache Treatment with Hypnotherapy





As anyone who has ever experienced a migraine headache knows, migraine is so very much more than a bad headache.

Often the migraine sufferer experiences severe mood alterations and changes in their behaviour hours or days before the actual onset of a migraine attack.

Some people experience an 'aura', or flashes of light and they have real difficulty in focusing their eyes.

The eyes become extremely sensitive to light and even minor noises and sounds become practically unbearable.

The head usually throbs with a kind of pulsating pain and there is often the feeling of nausea which, for some, can result in vomiting.

Eventually, sleep brings some relief, but the person who has experienced the migraine attack is left feeling weak, exhausted and generally debilitated for quite some time afterwards.

Medically speaking, migraine is considered to be an 'idiopathic' disorder. This simply means that the real and actual cause is unknown to medical science.

It is thought that the neurotransmitter serotonin may be lacking in those suffering from migraine episodes, but the reason why this is the case remains unknown to medical science.

In the UK, it is estimated that more than 6 million people suffer from migraine, while in the USA the number is estimated to be in excess of 35 million.

In fact, migraine is the most common neurological condition known.

The very first thing to do when you experience migraine is to visit your doctor or medical advisor in order to have a proper check up.

You need to be certain that the migraine is not symptomatic of some underlying disorder.

The conventional medical response may be to prescribe drugs - often containing barbiturates or narcotics - intended to reduce and alleviate the symptoms of migraine.

Though such an approach may be helpful in the short term, it is by no means a cure.

Indeed, research has found that people treated with these drugs are at increased risk of worsening the frequency of their migraine headaches.

If you or someone you care about suffers from migraine and have tried the conventional medical approach without any real help, then perhaps it is time to look elsewhere.

The well trained and experienced hypnotherapist realizes that the actual reason for the migraine often lies in the past.

Originating from the subconscious mind, a migraine episode may have been triggered as some kind of defence mechanism, intended to protect the individual from what was perceived to be an even more stressful situation or experience.

Modern advanced transformational hypnotherapy may help you to uncover the underlying cause of your migraine and then to do something about it.

The link between levels of stress and onset of migraine attacks is quite well established and good hypnotherapy can teach you to deal with stress in a more effective and less harmful manner.

The ability of hypnosis to work with the subconscious and unconscious mind in order to control the contraction and restriction of blood vessels, thereby allowing blood to flow more freely to the brain, is also a way in which this alternative approach can be very effective.

When you have had enough of your migraine headaches, when you have tired of the conventional medical response, then perhaps it is time to consider working with a fully qualified and experienced advanced transformational hypnotherapist.

After all, the only thing you really have to lose is those terrible migraine headaches.

Hypnotherapy Help for Skin Problems Skin Conditions and Skin Health
Our skin is our largest organ. It is also the most visible. It is the boundary, the interface between our physical self and all that is beyond that self. Because of this, the skin is also one of the main areas - together with the digestive system - that an emotional call for help is registered. In fact, though skin problems and skin conditions may indeed have a physical origin, they also very often have a distinct psychological component too. Eczema, psoriasis, acne, pruritus or itching,...

What Causes Claustrophobia and How to Cure It
Claustrophobia - or the fear of enclosed spaces - is one of the most common phobias that we see here in our hypnotherapy practice in the UK. Indeed, it is estimated that as much as 5% of the world population suffer from this truly debilitating and troublesome disorder. Sadly, only a very small percentage of claustrophobics receive treatment for their condition. This is usually because they are unaware that effective treatment actually exists. The good news is that regardless of what you may...

Paruresis Shy Bladder Treatment with Hypnotherapy
Many people have experienced short episodes of hesitation or 'shy bladder' when about to urinate in a public toilet or urinal. Indeed, public toilets with their close proximity to others can sometimes have a temporary inhibiting affect on even the most confident person. Yet for the individual experiencing shy bladder syndrome - or avoidant paruresis to give it its medical name - the difficulty goes far beyond simple urinary hesitation. Indeed, in extreme cases, this condition can make it...

Uncovering Your Own Confidence with Hypnotherapy
Being confident is our birthright. Whether or not we realize it or are aware of it, the simple truth is that every single person came into this world with an abundance of self-confidence. In fact, we were born to be confident. Inside each one of us there is an authentic self and this self is confident by nature. But when we try to be something that we don't truly feel we are then we are usually in for a difficult time. This is why the old 'fake it to make it' philosophy is so limited in...

Pain Relief with Hypnosis Managing Chronic Pain with Hypnotherapy
Pain is something each one of us has experienced at some point in our life. Though few people actually welcome it, few would deny that it has an essential role to play in our survival. After all, without pain, we simply wouldn't be aware that tissue damage is taking place somewhere in our body and that we need to do something - fast. In any approach to pain, of course, we need to first check with a qualified doctor or other medical practitioner. It is essential that we get a proper medical...

Agoraphobia Disorder and Agoraphobia Treatment A Psychotherapist Explains
Though agoraphobia disorder is an anxiety disorder seen frequently at our hypno-psychotherapy clinic here in the UK - around 5% of all adults develop an agoraphobia disorder - it is the only phobia regularly treated as a medical issue. As anyone who has ever experienced agoraphobia anxiety or a similar anxiety disorder is only too well aware, it is a condition that has the ability to produce intense and often incapacitating feelings of fear and panic. Until fairly recently, agoraphobia was...

End Dental Phobia and Dentist Fear and Smile
Dental phobia and dentist fear are conditions often seen by the hypnotherapist. Usually, clients who have suffered from this crippling fear for most of their lives are amazed to find that after just a couple of sessions of hypnotherapy they have been released from their often overwhelming fear of the dentist. After brief hypno-psychotherapy, they can at last visit the dentist and begin the process of restoring their dental health in a calm and relaxed manner, without the heart-palpitating,...

Emetophobia The Fear of Vomiting and How to Conquer It
Emetophobia is the name we give to the fear of vomiting, the fear of being sick, or the fear of throwing up. Often clients call the hypnotherapist seeking help in overcoming a fear of vomiting, believing that they alone have this fear or phobia. Contrary to this popular misperception, emetophobia is not at all uncommon. In fact, it is the sixth most common phobia. Given this fact, it really is surprising how little this fear is discussed. Part of the reason for this, of course, is that...

How to Stop Procrastination with Hypnosis
There are probaly a few people sitting there right now thinking: 'What exactly is procrastination? Well, I'll just look it up later...' And in that thought is the answer. Procrastination is simply putting things off, delaying things - whether those things are important, family or work related. If you've ever left something to the very last minute, then you are engaging in the awful habit that is procrastination. If you have ever missed opportunities in life because of needless delay, or...

Irritable Bowel Syndrome Treating IBS with Hypnotherapy
Back in the days when I was starting out in practice, few people had ever heard of Irritable Bowel Syndrome - IBS. In those times, IBS was most often referred to as 'spastic colon' and it was a mystery to all but a few perceptive specialist practitioners who intuitively identified its psychological component. Now, however, it is widely accepted that Irritable Bowel Syndrome, if not caused by emotions, is indeed greatly influenced by them. And what's more, it is thought that up to 20% of the...
