Carcinophobia Cured With Hypnosis

Carcinophobia, the fear of cancer, is among the most widespread phobias, and it is easy to imagine why. No one wants to develop cancer or see someone else suffering from it. Even though we all dread getting sick, people with carcinophobia experience an extreme amount of fear that often rules their lives. Beating carcinophobia used to take months or even years, but with more knowledge of the condition and improved treatments, this has changed. Proven hypnotherapy techniques can help people regain their health and well-being.

It’s not hard to imagine what can lead to a fear of cancer. This fear is associated with a fear of illness, death, and loss of control. In many cases, people feel upset by a family member’s experience with disease. People who have lost a family member to cancer, or face the threat of cancer, live in fear of the day when they develop cancer.

The uncontrollable anxiety brought on by the fear of cancer can lead people to make surprising life decisions. Many people constantly visit hospitals to confirm they are not sick, while others avoid hospitals altogether, afraid of being diagnosed with a disease. Phobia sufferers will feel awful if they develop the smallest symptoms of illness, such as a headache, and wonder if it is cancer. People might do whatever it takes to avoid becoming ill.

People suffering from a fear of cancer often feel like they have much to be afraid of. The fear of cancer a chronic fear that can strike both genders. A person might worry, “Who will provide for the family if I have cancer?” or agonize over other critical issues. The phobia may be unbearably sad for sufferers and their loved ones.

Many people can manage their fears by simply avoiding the cause of their worry. Arachnophobes can often cope by staying away from spiders, and people with claustrophobia are careful to avoid small, enclosed spaces such as crowded rooms. Cancer phobia, however, is not the same. Carcinophobia is primarily triggered by an individual’s innermost ideas and anxieties. It can be crippling for a person to suffer from a fear they just can’t escape. This leaves most people with carcinophobia in a constant state of panic.

There are many phobia treatments in use. Common ones involve therapy and medication. Talk therapy can generate lasting results, but it may take a long time, up to many months for some people. Prescription drugs work to relieve an individual’s nervousness, but it doesn’t treat the root causes of a deep-rooted fear. Hypnotherapy is another choice that produces lasting results in a shorter amount of time than other treatments. Hypnotherapy is now a popular choice because it is a safe, non-invasive, and effective type of treatment.

Hypnosis therapy combines anxiety-relief practices with fear relief to rapidly cure a phobia. A well-designed program will start with relaxation therapy to help alleviate the emotional anxiety caused by fear. When a person feels calm and at ease, hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques can direct the unconscious mind into adopting a phobia-free thought process.

Traditional hypnotherapy utilizes direct, post-hypnotic suggestions to cure a fear. It is highly successful when an individual is receptive to it. Unfortunately, these traditional techniques may not work because most people are inclined to question direct suggestions and unconsciously reject direct suggestions.

A serious phobia such as cancer phobia requires a more sophisticated type of treatment such as Ericksonian hypnosis. This type of hypnotherapy works well for people who tend to be analytical, and who are experiencing recurring anxiety and fear. It utilizes indirect suggestions in stories, conversations, and metaphors to help them fight their fears.

The innovative NLP technology doesn’t depend upon suggestion at all, so it can work for everyone. In simple terms, NLP offers techniques to train the unconscious mind to use the same thought patterns that are creating a symptom or problem, to eliminate it.

Since both hypnosis and NLP operate at the unconscious level of the mind, clients report feeling more in control and comfortable with these techniques.

With Traditional Hypnotherapy, programs generally need to be specific to each phobia. An advantage of a properly designed Ericksonian hypnotherapy and NLP program is that both are suitable for use on any phobia, or even several phobias. This can be a great asset to some carcinophobia sufferers who also struggle with other anxiety disorders, such as general germophobia or hypochondria.

The fear of cancer is a serious phobia, but one that can be tackled by appropriate hypnosis techniques. NLP techniques have become a leading fear therapy because of their effectiveness at addressing the root of all panic disorders and not just the signs and symptoms. Advanced Ericksonian hypnotherapy and NLP techniques can help even the most severe phobia patients beat their fears once and for all.

Treating Brontophobia With Hypnotism

Millions people everywhere have a fear of thunder and lightning, a widespread condition called brontophobia. For as long as this phobia has existed, we have been looking for ways to overcome it. Today, there is a variety of treatment options used. To help defeat this phobia, professionals call for certain hypnotherapy techniques that are proven effective in dissipating anxiety and fears.

Brontophobia sufferers experience an irrational fear of thunder and lightning. Loud, startling thunder and flashes of lightning can set off nervousness and anxiety attacks in people with brontophobia. Other signs include a racing heart, perspiring, and a strong sense of fear, to the point where a person becomes sick.

For many, the fear of thunderstorms develops early, when as children, we cower under blankets during a serious storm. The phobia can be especially overwhelming for small children. Many frightened children feel helpless during a thunderstorm, and their parents often feel powerless to help them cope with their phobia.

Despite its common occurrence in kids, brontophobia can develop at any time in life, frequently after a person has an unpleasant experience such as getting shocked, which recalls a flash of lightning. A traumatic event such as living through a tropical storm can also create a phobia of thunder and lightning.

Many people may come to associate loud noises, the sensation of pain, or shock with thunderstorms, which can escalate into a significant phobia. Brontophobia is so widespread that it’s even observed in many animals; for example, many pet owners observe that their pets seem upset in lightning.

Brontophobia sufferers try to avoid hearing or seeing storms. People may suffer nervous breakdowns during storm disasters such as tornadoes. This can be harmful to them if they are unable to function under circumstances which calls for them to keep calm and act decisively.

Brontophobia sufferers frequently hate storm season, often suffering in summer when thunderstorms are common. They might continually check weather reports and behave extra cautiously during periods of bad weather. To other people, these actions may seem obsessive and highly paranoid. People with brontophobia may find this condition slowly taking control of their lives.

There are many options available for relieving brontophobia and other strong fears. Notable ones include counseling, anti-anxiety medication, and hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy tends to deliver safer, quicker results and it is non-invasive, having no harmful side effects. For these reasons, hypnotherapy is a popular choice of treatment.

Hypnosis is highly effective as a form of relaxation therapy and has traditionally been used to this end. By starting with relaxation techniques, hypnosis helps tense, anxious individuals with phobias begin the process of recovery. When someone is feeling relaxed, it is easier for hypnotherapy techniques to guide the unconscious mind into a phobia-free line of thought.

Most phobias are connected to negative triggers, which become connected to fear inside the unconscious mind. For people with brontophobia, the sound of thunder, the flash of lightning, or even the sight of dark clouds often provokes a deep fear. Hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) work at the unconscious level of the mind to dissociate fear from these triggers to bring significant fear relief. One of the most effective techniques is named the NLP Visual/Kinesthetic Disassociation.

Ericksonian hypnotherapy is a type of hypnotherapy that is commonly used to treat phobia-related stress. Named after pioneering founder, Dr. Milton Erickson, MD, this type of approach uses indirect suggestions integrated in conversation, metaphors, and stories to cure a phobia. Indirect suggestions work better than traditional direct suggestions because we tend to reject simply being told what to do. Suggestions which are hidden from the conscious mind are more able to help people to overcome their fears.

Ericksonian hypnosis and NLP techniques have another advantage over conventional hypnosis programs because they are designed to work for any phobia. Thus, one program is usable for curing any phobia, or even more than one phobia if need be. Additionally, each program includes a variety of techniques to work for everyone.

For countless people, hypnosis is an ideal choice of treatment, which delivers rapid and permanent results. Cowering in bed and being panicked is not the way a phobia sufferer should have to live. With hypnotherapy and NLP techniques, virtually anyone can overcome this serious phobia.
