Mind Matters

Stress: the cause of numerous health issues

This time of year you are likely to encounter a cold, the ‘flu’, chest infections, sinus infections and sore throats to name a few or someone close to you will develop the symptoms. These bugs and nasty infections get into us when our immune system is a little weak or overworked and no matter what you do they will have their time irritating and weakening you further.

Stress is often seen as something linked just to our mood or emotions, we are at work and things are not going right, a particular task is outside of your comfort zone maybe you feel threatened and you feel ‘stressed’ and can’t wait to get home for a beer, glass of wine or grab a bar of chocolate.

The mind matters, getting ‘stressed’ can trigger off chemical reactions in the bodies organs for example to produce more adrenaline, this is generated in times of fear and the situation is often referred to as the ‘fight or flight’ mode . Adrenaline could be seen as the bodies supercharger it gets you going and has been known to push people to do extraordinary physical feats outside of their normal capability. At the time of an accident for example people have been known to lift up a car to release someone who is trapped, when in normal circumstances they don’t have anything like that strength available.

Imagine what state your body and mind would be in if you were feeling that adrenaline rush every few hours during your working day! And in many, many cases that’s exactly what is happening. If the mind and body keeps pumping extra amounts of chemicals like adrenaline in response to the stresses being perceived by the mind on a regular basis eventually the body can collapse or shut down. There is a cost to this activity and one is that our poor old immune system gets battered and weakened, when you put up your feet for a rest so does the immune system, it can’t cope it has a nap, its defences are down and hey presto you have a sore throat, a high body temperature etc. etc.

So take a look at how to manage the stress in your life, take a break for 5 minutes from the computer screen, have a good laugh with friends or colleagues, have a quiet ‘day dream’ of a great memory, put into perspective the threats in your job.  Is ‘failure not an option’? I can’t recall any UK bankers being taken out and shot after their catastrophic mismanagement of their business! Perhaps we say YES to often in our jobs when sometimes a reasoned explanation can take undue pressure away. For example “Yes I can do XYZ, I will have to put ABC on hold of course so which way do you want to play it?” Give it a try. Good luck and remember your mind does matter, preserve it for you.

Good Mental Health

Some years ago an American T.V. comedy programme called ‘Frasier’ (currently being repeated on UK’s Channel 4) featured the line ‘wishing you good mental health’. The reason for this was down to the character Frasier who was a psychotherapist and a radio personality with his own ‘call in’ programme when he would analyse caller’s personal issues, at the end of the programme he would sign off with ‘wishing you good mental health’.

Why you might ask am I talking about a T.V. comedy? Well here in the UK there still seems to be a ‘stigma or taboo’ about ‘mental health’, if you mention your deepest most inner feelings to anyone other than your closest partner, spouse, relative or friend the chances are you will be given a sideways look and kept at a safe distance. One of the biggest growth areas in the British leisure industry recently has been membership of the gym or ‘fitness centre’.  So we are happy to have a go at keeping our physical aspects ‘fit’ why not keep our mental or mind aspects ‘fit’ and in top shape at the same time?

Modern life throws many pressures on us all with ‘stress’ (or too much stress) being detrimental to our bodily functions.  I know people who go to the gym everyday to keep up the fitness regime and to be fit to cope with work. While working out they wear head phones to keep up with messages from the office or in case their boss calls for the latest data or to listen to the latest business analysis, ‘commitment’ is it a word or a way of life?

So do good levels of general fitness help us to deal with pressure, stress etc? Well it must help, I think that is accepted by most people, so what about our mind doesn’t that need help from time to time? How do we get the help we need when a problem spins in our heads and there is some emotional ‘fall out’?  How do we cope with the demand for increased sales when a recession is on?  How do we cope when we have more money going out than is coming in? Alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, food and ill health all become the ‘crutches’ for many who have no way to safely off load or overcome mind challenging issues.

I help people with these challenges through Healing Freedom™, Reiki and Hypnotherapy there is no smoke and mirrors, long gowns, chiming bells or magical apparitions just me being open and honest and trying to help. Something as simple as learning how to relax deeply can have an effect on the way you view issues and situations that are thrust upon you. So my intention to promote ‘Body and Mind’ fitness sessions with a friend who operates his own private fitness centre could provide welcome relief to some, if not all, of his clients.

Thank you reading my blog and in the words of  Frasier Crane “wishing you good mental health”.

New Year New Hope

Now we have moved into 2011 what can we expect from life, you only get out from what you put in comes to mind. Really it is down to the individual to make things happen in life yet we often need some help along the way and we shouldn’t be shy of asking for some direction or advice.
Often circumstances outside of our control cause unhappiness and distress, overcoming these situations offers a challenge to some and a complete obstruction to others.
If your self-confidence is low then a negative feeling can wash over you and you fail to see or find a solution. Lifting your confidence and feeling good about yourself for many people is difficult to achieve without the help of someone to lift up their spirits and find the inner strength that does exist within us.
I hope 2011 will be good to you and if you need a little help then have a look through my web pages and give Healing Freedom™ a chance.

Hypnotherapy & Hypnosis

Bill Noon Hypnotherapy & Hypnosis – hypnosisnorthwest

My continuing path towards helping people has now been strengthened with the addition of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy.

Following my initial training which has taken from February 2010 to 2011 to complete I have now in 2012 completed further training to an advance level.  I’m now on the road to helping people help themselves. Helping anyone to discover their inner strength or to see life in a more meaningful way is very rewarding. This is not magic or trickery just technique and sensitivity.

Bill the Hypnotherapist

Today I have completed the first (and largest) section of training to become a Hypnotherapist. I can now practice Hypnotherapy and offer people help in a great number of ways and learn a great deal more of life. Although I’m qualified the training doesn’t stop, there are specialist areas in Hypnotherapy that require specific in depth training and I’m looking forward to the continuing journey.

The energy and goodwill I have received certainly has helped me to take in the Hypnotherapy training. Above all having two great teachers Paul Peace and Karen Bartle from the Academy of  Advanced Changework in Sheffield, has given me the experience of a lifetime.

Talking to my colleagues on the Hypnotherapy training course we seemed to arrive at a conclusion that life dictates what will happen. What I mean is that why in the autumn of my life have I been fortunate enough to discover energy healing, Reiki and Hypnotherapy amongst other things to help me to help other people. At the same time meeting new people of differing ages (most of them much younger than me) who have arrived at a similar place with their own stories to tell and undertaken training to become Hypnotherapists.  Life is a wonderful thing which we should enjoy and help others enjoy whenever we can.

Hay fever the curse of summer

Hay fever a growing problem

Here in England we have been enjoying warm, sunny days the stuff that makes a memorable summer, blue, blue skys and bright energy giving sunshine. The green grass and rich textured leaves of the numerous trees are full of life that just gives you a big lift after the cold damp winter.

Sadly for many of us, both young and old, ‘Hay  fever’ appears right on cue with summer to throw us into a world of sneezing, itchy running eyes, runny nose and constant mouth and throat irritations. Over the years I have tried many remedies and relief giving concoctions with varying degrees of success and failure. I don’t particularly like modern over the counter drugs, from my own experience they do one job, say stop you sneezing only to compromise your breathing and if like me you suffer from asthma this can become quite stressful and upsetting which compounds your symptoms.

Prevention is often an answer to the issue – avoid visiting gardens, parks, green open spaces, trees, don’t go outside unless you really have to, miss out on summer, stay in an air-conditioned bubble if you have one – just a few of the things that might help!

A good friend of mine has recently found relief in ‘tapping’ and swears by the positive results (tapping in specific points on the body as described in E.F.T. the Emotional Freedom Technique). He previously relied on nasal sprays and assorted  antihistamine drugs to get him through the day.

By using my own methods  I get through the uncomfortable stages that try my strength with some positive thoughts, a session of self help through Healing Freedom ™ uses the energy fields to re-tune my defences in some way making me feel better in my mind and stronger to cope with the irritations of hay fever. When I find the complete cure for hay fever I will let you know.

Help from Healing-Freedom

Help from Healing-Freedom™ recently got me through a difficult time in my life.  Within days of each other I suffered a bereavement and the loss of my job.  I decided to treat myself using the Healing-Freedom™ technique, it works for my clients.  My emotions were all over the place and trying to think straight was difficult,  energy healing was the answer so I carried out a treatment on myself and found a great boost to my state of mind.  This episode in my life has created changes to the way I think and how I prioritise.

A calmer person with a more open mind has emerged, the healing that has taken place within me and the healing work that I do certainly gives me a feeling that is so good it is difficult to describe.

Being involved with ‘alternative’ therapy,  Healing-Freedom™,  Reiki, etc.  I decided that the time was right for me to pursue this as a full time career.  Now not everyone can accept what I say about the way energy healing works and the great results that are achieved.  So I looked for another way to help people that has some similarities to what I already do and is more widely accepted having a higher profile.  I decided that Hypnotherapy was a path to follow, (no not making people think they are a chicken running around on stage – that is a routine used by some stage Hypnotists), ‘Therapy’ is the important part that makes all the difference.

Earlier this month (February) I commenced a training programme to become a  Hypnotherapist with a recognised Diploma, already I feel so good about this, my confidence is growing like I have never felt before. The energy I feel is so positive thanks to Healing-Freedom™ it has become the cornerstone of my future.
