The Reason Why Stress May be Affecting Your Digestion
While everyone has some amount of stress what varies is how we cope with it. Overtime stress can lead to physical pain and discomfort. It can also be a contributor to inflammation problems in the gut. If this continues on an ongoing basis it may be affecting your digestion. While research has proven that stress does not cause IBD, we now know that stress perception and a flare-up of IBD symptoms are intertwined. There is evidence which shows a mind/body connection.
Maybe you are feeling stress due to your chronic pain or discomfort from digestive issues. We are slowly beginning to understand that IBD affects people psychologically even when their condition of IBD is not active. And we also know that people with Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease have a higher risk of developing depression and other psychological problems than people in general.
One way to help alleviate your stress and discomfort is to learn techniques that will help you make important changes. You have the power to redesign the blueprint that organizes your thoughts, feelings and actions for the rest of your life. The Stress Help Program can teach you how to refocus and reframe your thought patterns.
Chronic pain and discomfort leads to a build up of negative association patterns, which, once identified, may be modified permanently. You can learn techniques to break down negative thought patterns and replace them instead with supportive and positive ones.
Allow yourself to learn ways to help you make changes in your thought patterns permanently. This technique is called Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).
Results prove that NLP techniques are effective for creating fast and long-lasting change in your life. Many other systems are good at discovering problems but don’t give you tools.
