Allergies Getting You Down? Try Hypnosis!
Clinical Studies Show Hypnosis Can Relieve Allergy Symptoms
The arrival of spring brings warmer weather, green grass, blooming flowers...and pollen. If you are one of the 50 million Americans that suffer from seasonal allergies you are used to popping Benadryl, Claritin or Zyrtec. But there is a natural alternative that you probably never thought of - hypnosis.
A number of clinical trials have shown that hypnosis is effective for many allergy sufferers. Hypnosis has the benefit of being a natural, drug-free alternative. (Learn the truth about hypnosis here.)
Allergies occur when your body's immune systems reacts to a harmless substance (like pollen) as if it were something toxic. In other words, your immune system makes a mistake. And it seems that hypnosis can influence your immune system to an extent.
Some studies have shown that hypnosis may alter the body’s physiological response. In a study from the British Medical Journal, hypersensitivity reactions were suppressed in 8 of the 12 patients given brief direct suggestions in hypnosis. (Black S., Inhibition of immediate-type hypersensitivity response by direct suggestion under hypnosis. Br Med J.1963;1:925-929).
In another study patients were given skin prick tests for allergic reactions before and after hypnosis. Patients in the hypnosis group (but not the control group) who were given suggestions for increasing or decreasing skin reactions were able to increase the reactions on one arm and decrease the reactions on the other arm, with a significant difference between the two arms!(Zachariae R, Bjerring P., The effect of hypnotically induced analgesia on flare reaction of the cutaneous histamine prick test. Arch Dermatol Res. 1990;282:539-543)
So if your allergies are getting the better of you, give hypnosis a try. Who knows - you might be able to throw those allergy medicines away.
