Hypnosis for alleviating pain in sickle cell disease

Hypnosis for alleviating pain in sickle cell disease

Sickle cell disease causes both chronic and acute pain. Also known as a pain crisis, vaso-occlusive episodes are among the most painful experience a person can feel. To make matters worse, the red cell clumps cut off oxygen to healthy tissue. This means that children with sickle cell anemia do not grow at the usual rate for their age. Also, fatigue and extreme pain surge with every consecutive episode.

Hypnosis offers three approaches to managing pain. In detail, dissociation, distraction, and pain perception modification. Each of these entails using your imagination to change how you feel and reduce pain. In a sense, hypnosis helps you move into a different reality whenever you need it the most.

Hypnotic techniques to manage pain crisis and fatigue

With a little practice and the help of a trained hypnotist, you can set a handy trigger to access the trance state fast. A standard hypnotic session can indeed last 20 minutes. But hypnotism has a lot of techniques to help you achieve hypnosis at will. In this way, you can put yourself in a self-hypnotic state to protect yourself from the harmful onset of the next crisis.

Besides the use of suggestions, you can try relaxation techniques to reduce pain duration and fatigue. Calming your mind is a crucial step in managing pain. Mainly because you prevent your body from tensing and accumulating stress.

With visualization or guided imagery, you can change your pain perception and provide rapid analgesia. Your brain does not care if you are in a hospital bed or lying down on a beach. In fact, pain and pleasure are only signals from its point of view. Hypnosis lets you place your attention within a world where you have nothing to fear or worry.

Avoiding substance dependence and addiction

The official treatment for sickle cell disease includes painkillers and opioids. So, most sickle cell sufferers develop either dependence or addiction. Luckily, hypnosis may help you reduce the intake of analgesic drugs.

Thanks to hypnotism, you learn specific techniques for pain relief. Some of which involve the modification of the pain signal into something else. Over time, you will discover which one works best for you and how you can use it for the best results. As a result, you may take fewer medications in the long run.

In a recent study, hypnosis proved to be an effective method to reduce sickle cell pain intensity. Every person responds in a different way to the hypnotist’s words. But the positive results are often the same. Plus, if any headache or other problem arises, hypnosis gives you the time and energy to tackle it. Without taking more pills.

Try hypnosis for controlling pain in sickle cell disease

You do not need to believe in the power of hypnosis for alleviating sickle cell pain. But you have to open your mind to the possibility that it can work. After all, you control the whole process and decide how to direct your mind.
