Relieving Symptoms of Chronic Illness and Taking Back Control of Your Life

Ladybird on flowerHealing Touch can be an effective complementary therapy to help in the management of chronic conditions and diseases that cannot be cured. In the management of these conditions conventional health care is supplemented or enhanced with the use of Healing Touch which works to help facilitate the body’s own natural pattern of defense and healing.

Dealing with the pain and aggravation of a broken bone or burst appendix isn’t easy, but at least there’s and end in sight.  Once you heal, you’re pretty much back to your old self.  That’s not true for chronic conditions like high blood pressure, heart failure, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, and others.  With no “cure” in sight, they usually last a lifetime.  You can live with a chronic condition day to day, responding to its sometimes swiftly changing symptoms and problems, or you can take charge and manage the disease with the help of Healing Touch.

Every chronic condition has its own symptoms, treatment, and course of action.  So managing the condition comes with many challenges.  When you live with a chronic illness you may feel affected not just physically, but emotionally, socially, and even financially.  In addition to the particular problems caused by the illness and any side effects of medications used to treat the illness, people dealing with chronic illnesses can feel stress, anxiety and even depression.  Often spilling over and affecting other parts of their life.

In studies, Healing Touch has been shown to calm anxiety, relieve depression, decrease pain, strengthen the immune system and improve overall well-being in those with chronic disease (as well as acute illnesses). In one study, symptoms of depression using a standard test were found to decrease faster with those receiving Healing Touch.  In another study, Healing Touch was been found to reduce the levels of stress in individuals that were experiencing stressful events like treatment for severe diseases.  Another study that looked at individuals with a chronic disease, participants reported a decrease in their stress after receiving weekly Healing Touch sessions.

Healing Touch can relieve many of the symptoms of chronic illnesses so you can take control of your condition and experience a higher quality of life.
