Health Matters...

I recently read an advertisement for quite a well known brand of 'natural health' product that is allegedly intended to help relieve stress. The advertisement states that being over stressed can result in many health problems such as headaches, stomach upsets, high blood pressure and troubles with the heart. In my experience overly stressed people can also experience degrees of anxiety varying from bursting in to tears, anger, resentment and fear, to full blown panic attacks and quite often experiencing IBS and or other physical manifestations along the way. The advertisement suggests that this product can help to relieve stress, which I understand to mean, help to relieve the 'effects' of stress, for I am not aware of a pill or a powder that can relieve the 'cause' of stress. You can take a pill to temporarily rid yourself of pain but unless you tackle the cause of that pain you know the pain will return and I suggest it is similar with stress. It is of course sometimes helpful to take something that will take the 'edge off ' for a while but if you're increasingly suffering the effects of stress you need to release the cause of that stress and that my friends is where I eventually get around to hypnotherapy; I know you were wondering. Clearly, as helpful as those pills might be, if you're suffering with any kind of stress that lasts for more than a few days, as well as being checked out by your GP who might be tempted to prescribe you an anti-anxiety drug (anxiolytic) to mask the cause of your stress, consider seeking help from your local GHR Registered Hypnotherapist. In many cases for little more than the cost of a few pots of pills, you might just get rid of your stress and its causes, for good. As ever it's up to you; keep smiling.
