Treating Fear Of Vomit With Hypnosis

Many people have emetophobia, but this fear is almost never mentioned or discussed. Simply put, this phobia is a fear of vomit. Those with severe emetophobia will do anything to avoid throwing up or the sight of vomit. Although emetophobics typically cope by avoiding the source of their fear, it can be cured with techniques such as Ericksonian hypnosis therapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming.

Emetophobia is an extremely common fear with far ranging consequences for its sufferers. Some people will not eat out or with guests out of fear of developing a stomach ailment. Expectant women with emetophobia are often scared of developing morning sickness. The condition also makes it difficult for parents to care for their infants or tend to their young children if they fall ill.

Emetophobia can affect a person’s willingness and ability to travel. One might be scared of going to a distant country and catching an illness. Many emetophobia sufferers avoid public places because they are afraid of falling ill or even witnessing someone else getting sick. The fear also interferes with one’s ability to hold jobs in certain fields, such as medicine and hospital care.

Emetophobia is often caused by childhood incidents. Sufferers may recall the unpleasant feeling of being ill and wish to avoid it at all costs. They may also dread getting ill because they link it with a lack of physical control. The phobia affects both men and women of all ages.

The phobia can manifest itself into other anxiety disorders and phobias. Many sufferers will develop agoraphobia, a fear of unfamiliar places which can confine a person to their own home. People with emetophobia may also develop a deep fear of hospitals or germs. What starts as emetophobia can rapidly escalate into a number of serious conditions linked to the original phobia.

Many sufferers try to cope with their phobia by avoiding it whenever possible, but the phobia can be successfully cured with options ranging from therapy to medication. However, there are a few unique challenges involved with treating emetophobia. After a long period of time, the phobia becomes associated with overwhelmingly negative imagery in the unconscious. The fear is so deeply set that it can’t be controlled by conscious effort or willpower alone. Sufferers may admit that their fear is illogical, but continue to feel helpless to treat their fear.

Hypnosis is a perfect tool for curing phobias because it can dissociate or disconnect the sensation of fear from negative imagery within the unconscious mind. It is an excellent type of safe, non-invasive therapy that provides a permanent phobia cure.

Hypnotic therapy treatments are often in the form of a program composed of many, easy-to-use sessions. A thorough program begins with relaxation therapy. This has a calming effect and helps make the mind more open to hypnosis. Once a person feels calm and tension-free, hypnosis guides the unconscious mind into a new, fear-free line of thinking.

Ericksonian hypnosis is ideal for independent minded thinkers, such as the many emetophobia sufferers who always try to control over their own health and well-being. It works using indirect suggestions integrate in stories, metaphors, and dialogues. It differs from conventional hypnosis techniques, which use direct post-hypnotic suggestions to treat single phobias. These conventional techniques often prove ineffective because most people will question and resist direct suggestions. With Ericksonian hypnosis therapy, these issues can be avoided.

Due to the fact that emetophobia frequently occurs other phobias such as social phobia and agoraphobia, it is necessary for a thorough treatment program to address all of these issues. Ericksonian hypnosis therapy and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques have an advantage over conventional hypnosis programs because they are not phobia specific; they can be used to cure any phobia, or even numerous phobias. Moreover, more users respond to the combined program because it contains a range of techniques to work for any person.

People are usually astonished at the ease with which they achieve results through hypnosis. It has allowed many people rapidly overcome their phobias and it’s a successful type of phobia treatment. The techniques in Ericksonian hypnosis and NLP are effective treatments for many fears and anxiety disorders. The techniques are the answer for helping many emetophobia sufferers vanquish their fears and feel comfortable and in charge.

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.
