Treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome
With regards to the treatment of the symptom irritable bowel syndrome, the medical profession treats the symptom but it cannot cure or remove that symptom. The medical profession only treats the symptom usually with medications but not always successful. GPs do not work with or treat the mind, they treat the body and the symptoms within the body. They cannot remove or eradicate the symptoms. Curative hypnotherapists however can and do remove the symptom by treating and correcting the underlying cause which always lies within the unconscious mind. IBS or irritable bowel syndrome disorder can be permanently removed for the rest of a person's life with the use of curative hypnotherapy. This article explains more.
Anxiety Reduction Treatment
Anxiety sickness or free-floating anxiety as it is normally called is being driven by the evolutionary fight or flight response to environmental threat or danger. This can be a real or imagined, either way the unconscious mind produces the response and the unconscious mind cannot tell the difference, it just produces the response to stored up information that you have located within your memory banks.
Based on the information you have stored up and in association to the environment that you are within, if your unconscious mind believes that there is a threat then it will produce an anxiety response whether you like it or not, so unless the original root cause of the anxiety is treated, the anxiety will continue. This anxiety reduction treatment article provides a few step-by-step instructions on how you can at least reduce your symptoms of anxiety.
