If you have recently been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and you are looking for tools and techniques to manage your symptoms, you may have found that Western medicine primarily only addresses the symptoms, not the underlying causes. One of the things that many holistic healthcare doctors have found is that quelling the autoimmune response, reducing antibodies, and managing stress can all contribute to improvements in autoimmune disease effects. Here's a look at how Reiki therapy can help with this.
Emotional And Mental Health Improvements
One of the primary benefits of Reiki therapy is the combination of visualization techniques and the energy balance work that will help to provide some sense of emotional and mental health balance.
For those struggling with chronic autoimmune disease symptoms, persistent difficulties can lead to depression, anxiety, fatigue, and other emotional and mental health struggles. These negative feelings can then manifest in physical symptoms.
Reiki therapy can help to bring you some emotional peace and balance, which will improve your mental health and potentially help to minimize the physical manifestations of those emotional struggles.
The higher your antibodies with an autoimmune disease, the greater the inflammation that you're likely to suffer. That inflammation translates to chronic pain that can interfere with your daily life. Reiki can help you to ease and better manage that pain.
Reiki therapy is very relaxing for most patients. That relaxation translates into less tension in your muscles, which can help to ease chronic pain from fatigued, over-tensed muscle tissue. Additionally, Reiki has been shown to reduce cortisol in the body. Cortisol is the stress-response hormone, and it can increase inflammation in large quantities in your body.
When you ease muscle tension and reduce cortisol, you minimize pain and inflammation throughout your body.
When your body is in a constant state of stress and strain, the constant cortisol production and the emotional effects can trigger your autoimmune system to respond in overdrive. This can perpetually increase your body's autoimmune response, which can be dangerous for your body.
Reiki therapy's stress reduction, cortisol management, and relaxation all contribute to reducing your body's autoimmune system response. This can protect your body from the devastating effects of autoimmune disease, allowing your immune system to function as it is supposed to.
These are some of the most important benefits of pursuing Reiki therapy when you have an autoimmune disease. Talk with a Reiki practitioner near you today for more information.
