What is Type 1 Diabetes?

Hypnosis is a therapeutic tool to reverse habits that cause Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). Hypnosis is used to help Type 1 Diabetes patients manage their condition and through a reversal of habits, change their outcomes.

Diabetes is the name given to disorders in which the body has trouble regulating its blood glucose or blood sugar levels. Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease where the person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, a hormone that enables people to get energy from food. T1D or Type 1 Diabetes usually strikes in childhood, adolescence or young adulthood and lasts a lifetime. People with Type 1 Diabetes take insulin to counteract the effects.

The Cost of Type 1 Diabetes (T1D)

Taking insulin does not cure diabetes, but instead prevents the possibility of the disease’s devastating effects including kidney failure, blindness, nerve damage, amputation, heart attack, stroke and pregnancy complications. T1D is a leading cause of life-threatning and debilitating complications. 80% of people with diabetes die from a heart attack or stroke and is the leading cause of blindness. Seven out of ten non-traumatic limb amputations are the result of diabetes complications. Type 1 Diabetes typically lowers the life expectancy for people by 15 years.

Hypnosis Plays an Important Role in Managing Type 1 Diabetes

Therapeutic hypnosis helps people with Type 1 Diabetes manage the ailment including:

Compliance – in many cases the patient is non-compliant to their doctor’s plan for a healthier lifestyle. Hypnosis goes directly to the subconscious mind and helps “unblock” the mind so the plan is followed. Hypnosis helps with better eating patterns, more exercise, losing weight and getting control of diabetes.

• Reducing Stress – controlling anxiety and stress is one of hypnosis’s best kept secrets as it relates to managing diabetes. Hypnosis is a very deep state of relaxation and that relaxation plays a critical role in better health.

The Subconscious Mind’s Effect on the Pancreas – under hypnosis the hypnotherapist can tap into the subconscious mind and offer suggestions for the body to produce the proper levels of insulin. The power of the mind has the ability to relieve common ailments and diseases. Similar strategies are used under hypnosis to help mothers produce breast milk and alleviate pain during child birth (what is in modern day terms called lamaze).

Reducing Depression and Emotional Eating – studies show that people with diabetes are at an increased risk for depression which can lead to emotional eating and making it more difficult to manage insulin levels. Hypnosis increases self-confidence and helps improve beliefs about a brighter future, thereby reducing depression and emotional eating and helping the patient control diabetes and overall mental health.

Breaking the Cycle of Bad Habits – Hypnosis is used around the world helping millions to reduce and reverse negative behaviors that lead to diabetes like overeating, snacking on sweets, being sedentary and more. The power of suggestion to the subconscious mind can literally reprogram the body to make better and healthier choices.

Issues with Self-Love and Self-Esteem – many patients with diabetes have low self-esteem and low self-love which affects their choices in how they treat their body without even realizing it.  These issues reside in the subconscious mind which hypnotherapy addresses directly.  Many diabetes clients feel sigificantly different about loving their body enough to get better which is a springboard for change.
