Overwhelm causes autoimmune diseases

June 14th, 2017

Overwhelm causes autoimmune diseases like MS, Thyroid, lupus, various allergic responses and many more because when a person becomes overwhelmed a short-term Fight, Flight, Freeze protective response is triggered.

If overwhelm continues the response disrupts the body’s hormonal balance and becomes the autoimmune disease.

Your body is attempting to destroy the thing causing the stress and escape and if is unable to do so… your body turns on itself harming itself instead.

This may have been when you were very small and can’t remember… but your body remembers.

What your body remembers can either kill you or it can heal you and it makes sense to sort out unresolved stress and see what was happening around the time that you began to develop symptoms.

To effectively change your body’s response your unconscious mind needs to know that the danger is over.

If you are seeing other health professionals like naturopaths and many others I can liaise with them to achieve much-improved outcomes… often remarkably rapidly.

Sometimes autoimmune diseases seem to run in families. However when you stop and look at the family, it may be that the stressful or overwhelming situation is what has run in the family.

In any case it may well be worth trying to see whether a 3 session hypnotic program can help resolve the problem. Just give me a phone call to ask how I can help. I am always delighted to answer questions and explore how I can help you.

And I have successfully worked with clients all over Australia and internationally using a very easy to use videoconference that is available from your computer or tablet, you only need email, earphones and a video camera in your computer or tablet and they all do nowadays.


Autoimmune disease is caused when a person becomes overwhelmed, triggering a short-term protective response disrupting the body’s hormonal balance and becomes the autoimmune disease.

What is your why

It is a really great exercise to stop and ask yourself why. What is your motivation in the various areas of your life and what do you really care about? Your purpose is what keeps your passion and joy alive.

Sometimes life gets too much, the world seems to be falling apart around us, and we are not sure what to hold onto anymore. It might be your relationships, your physical environment, your finances, your work. At other times, you may not be clear what has happened but you feel exposed and vulnerable.

Holding on is what hurts

How heavy is a glass of water?

The weight of the glass doesn't change, but the longer you hold it, the heavier it feels.

Stress, trauma, anxieties and worries in life are like that glass of water.

In fact the weight does not matter… holding on is what hurts. If you hold it for a minute, it's not a problem. If you hold it for an hour, your arm will ache. After a day a day, your arm will feel numb and paralysed.

The weight of the glass doesn't change, but the longer you hold it, th...
