Positive Affirmations

Thought Proceeds Substance

Studies show that depression, negative emotions, thoughts and feelings release poisoning toxins within the body, which are dangerous for health and can cause illnesses as well as shorten a person’s life span.  How do you avoid this from happening?  The answer is, positive thinking. Through positive energy, a person can achieve the ability to heal by reducing stress and emotional pressure. 
How a person thinks has a major impact on his or her mental attitude as well as physical health.  Do to the fact that the unconscious mind is influential in the structure of habitual behavior, many have chosen the use of hypnotherapy to implement positive thoughts, overcoming the negative thought pattern; using guided relaxation and concentration. Hypnotherapy causes long-term mental change; which in return can improve a person’s life, through positive thought enabling the body the opportunity to heal itself of illness and stress.  "Thought Proceeds Substance"

It is also used to control pain in a variety of conditions such as headache, facial neuralgia, arthritis, burns, musculoskeletal disorders, childbirth, and many more.
