New year, new you? It may be a tired cliche, but there is no doubting the fact that the fresh start each January naturally leads us all to reflect on how to be healthier and happier, and the things we would like to do to get there.
If you know you want to implement some healthy habits that will improve your life but are not quite sure where to start, consider some of the top alternative health treatments that are going to define the year ahead. From breathing coaches, hypnosis sessions, ketamine-assisted therapy, and beyond, why not try something new in 2022?
Have you ever noticed how much your breath can influence your mental state? There is a reason that breathing is a fundamental component of mindfulness activities like meditation and yoga.
Breathwork takes focusing on the breath a step further: specific exercises are utilized to modify your breathing patterns. By doing so, you can reduce stress levels and find a state of deep relaxation. By working with a breathing coach, many patients find success using breathwork to manage the symptoms of anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and more.
Many people have a misconstrued idea of what hypnosis really is. There is no gazing at pocket watches or being commanded to act for entertainment in a magic show. Rather, hypnotherapy practiced with a trained therapist can potentially lead to changes in negative behaviors and thought patterns.
Research shows that hypnotherapy can effectively help patients improve self-esteem, get over phobias, and quit unhealthy behaviors, like smoking. Working with an online hypnotherapist can help achieve your goals for healthier habits and thought patterns this year.
Unlike some other hallucinogenic drugs that show potential for treating mental health conditions, like psilocybin, ketamine has FDA approval for use as an antidepressant, and demand for ketamine-assisted therapy continues to grow rapidly.
Traditionally administered as an anesthetic for surgical procedures, ketamine has also demonstrated an ability to provide relief for patients suffering from treatment-resistant depression, PTSD, and other mental health conditions. Ketamine therapy involves working with a trained doctor and can improve depressive symptoms for patients sometimes within hours, compared to weeks or months for most traditional antidepressant medications.
IV therapy is growing in popularity as a quick and effective way to boost your immune system through an influx of fluids, vitamins, and electrolytes. You can receive IV drips specifically formulated for different needs, including fatigue, hangovers, skin health, and headaches. IV therapy may even help fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) patients manage their symptoms.
