Autoimmune diseases affect over 1 million Australians and, in the Western world, are a leading cause of death in women under the age of 65.  Women are 8 times more likely to develop autoimmune illnesses than men. There are over 80 different autoimmune diseases including Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Thyroid Disease (Hashimoto’s & Grave’s), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis), Celiac Disease, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Psoriasis, Vitiligo and Sjogren’s.

The function of immune system is to protect the body from invaders, yet in autoimmune illness it attacks its own body tissues.  Depending on your body’s weak link, it may attack your joints, thyroid, gut, brain, skin, or all of them. Some of the common symptoms associated with autoimmune conditions:

  • feeling bloated after meals

  • skin rashes

  • joint pain

  • decreased energy

  • forgetfulness

  • brain fog

  • resistant weight loss

  • hair loss

Research has shown that trauma is often connected to a later development of autoimmune illness.  People with autoimmune diseases, in addition to physical ailments often suffer from depression, anxiety, anger, and hopelessness. These emotions further undermine the immune system, and learning how to effectively manage these negative emotions, by lowering the stress, is highly beneficial.

One of the primary goals of hypnotherapy is restoration of the self: for the your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual parts to be re-balanced.
