Clinical Hypnotherapy: a Natural Treatment for Eczema or Dermatitis

Hypnotherapy is a recognised treatment for eczema.  It is a perfectly natural treatment because hypnotherapy aims to use the innate healing power of ones own mind and body. As with all complementary treatments one should always discuss options available with ones medical practitioner prior to consulting a hypnotherapist.

There is no cure for eczema and any medical or alternative remedy can only manage the condition.  

Eczema or dermatitis, as it is sometimes called, is non contagious skin condition. There are several different types of eczema; the most common form being Atopic eczema. In the United Kingdom, up to one in five of all children of school age has eczema and one in twelve adults. Symptoms of eczema can vary from dry, hot itchy skin to the skin being broken, raw and bleeding in the extreme forms.

Atopic eczema is thought to have a genetic link and to be associated with asthma and hay fever.

Hypnotherapy can be used as a natural treatment for eczema and there are a number of factors that may account for its effectiveness.  

Hypnotherapy Removes Eczema Triggers

Many people experience a connection between their stress levels and the severity of their eczema. In the same way that avoiding contact with the substance that triggers ones eczema (e.g. the soap powder one uses to wash ones clothes) will relieve ones eczema so hypnotherapy can relieve ones eczema by reducing ones stress levels.

Hypnotherapy has a Physiological effect on Eczema

The immune response can have a huge effect on ones eczema.  One of the causes of eczema is an allergic response (such as to ones soap powder as in the example above).  The skin produces histamines that cause inflammation, swelling and itching; scratching will increase this effect and the skin becomes damaged and infected.  Breaking this vicious cycle can be a major step to easing ones eczema and it has been known since 1963 that hypnosis can prevent hypersensitive skin reactions to allergens (or the chemicals that trigger the eczema).  

Hypnosis can relieve itching and irritation caused by eczema

Hypnosis is well known to be useful in controlling pain and sometimes this proves useful in reducing the urge to scratch and can even relieve night-time scratching.

Eczema – the Alternative View

The alternative view is that eczema is caused by trapped emotion or an inappropriate release mechanism for emotion. The discovery of the emotional cause and development of an alternative method to release that emotion using hypnotherapy can control the eczema.
