This is an information course for  Psychoneuroimmunology. It is suitable for all hypnotherapists regardless of the approach they use.

Psychoneuroimmunology workshopThe concept of emotions being linked with illness and even death has existed since c. 500 B.C.. Hippocrates suggested that health is related to the balance of four body humours. These contributed to specific temperaments. Galen (A.D. 131–201) took this further. By saying that a balance of the “passions” was essential for physical health.

Severe emotional reactions are considered causes of diseases. Such as stroke, birth defects, asthma, ulcers and death right into the Renaissance.

Robert Burton (1621/1893) wrote,

“the mind most effectually works upon the body, producing by his passions and perturbations miraculous alterations , cruel diseases and sometimes death itself.”

In this Psychoneuroimmunology workshop we look at evidence. That shows that negative emotions have in relation to illness and mortality.  Through the evidence  from research on stress – a Western epidemic. It is clear that negative emotions can intensify a wide variety of health threats.

Positive emotions have received less attention.  Due to the view of physical and mental health as the absence of disease and negative emotions.

Please note that this is now a 2 day workshop. Not 1 day as per the video.
