Scientific Breakthrough Could Lead to Preventive Therapies for Stress

Posted On: June 08, 2022


A recent cutting-edge study shows a significant association between chemical structure of brain and acute psychological health issues. As per a group of scientists at the School of Leicester in the UK, neuropsin, a brain enzyme in human brains promotes stress and may be associated with stress-related psychological disorders.

Responding to this study, Dr. John Pawlak, also from Leicester, led a team of scientists that managed to unveil the secret the role of amygdale, epicenter of mind, in unleashing an abrupt response in people when they are bombarded by an emotional catalyst.

Normalizing brain function is pivotal in the prevention and treatment of stress and stress related illness. One of the possibilities to manage brain function and specifically the working of the amygdala is hypnosis. Research performed on the brain shows that hypnosis gives an individual the ability to control the amygdala by encouraging the mind-body connections of this area of the brain.

When someone is in a state of hypnotic trance the amygdala normally shuts itself off. Both our body and the brain are in a deep relaxation. All feelings of concern are turned off. This creates the window for bio-regulation in which with the help of a skilled hypnotherapist, the person’s unconscious mind is able to leverage the stabilizing and healing power of “targeted hypnotic suggestions” to correct behavioral patterns that encourage stress.
