Can Stress Cause 60% of Illnesses?

How does stress cause illnesses

Many people live stressful lives balancing families and demanding careers.  Our bodies are not meant to live in stress mode all day.  When stress is the primary way we live then the body does not function optimally and affects the digestive, immune, reproductive systems and the mind.  So stress can affect your body and cause illnesses.  Try to work at leading a more balanced life where stress is less and find ways to feel relaxation or calm throughout the day.

The affects of relaxation through hypnosis

I always check with clients to see where stress levels are at the beginning and end of a session.  The other day I had a first time client who went from a stress level of 7 to a 2 by the end of the hypnosis session. She looked like a different person when she left.  Her face was relaxed and calm. I asked her now that that she felt calm and relaxed did things seem easier and possible?  She said yes.

So find ways to learn how to add relaxation to your day.  Whether it is through exercise, yoga, meditation or self-hypnosis teach your body to feel calm and relaxed more often.
