Treating Pain with Subliminal Therapy

Leave a comment


Albert Schweitzer once called pain “a more terrible lord of mankind than even death itself.”
Even so, pain is essential to life; we simply could not live without it. We would behave in self-destructive ways without being aware that we were doing so. Yet, pain can also be dysfunctional, inhibiting awareness of life’s values and meaning.

Pain is the mind’s way of getting attention. It is a protective mechanism, regardless of the cause of the pain. Moreover, the purpose is rarely recognized consciously. In addition, once established as a pattern, the pain response can persist long after the original purpose ceases to have meaning. In this situation, the pain is maintained unconsciously for reasons that were real and valid in the past —when the pain began—but are no longer real or valid in current life. When the person recognizes that the pain no longer has valid purpose, doing so both consciously and subconsciously, relief becomes possible. Subliminal Therapy works to identify its subconscious, psychological cause, thereby to resolve it.


Subliminal Therapy and Depression



During recent decades, depression has been considered as an organic problem, calling for organic solutions (medicine) to correct the problem. A great deal of research in recent years has raised serious question about that conclusion. Turns out that psychotherapy is equally as effective as medication. Turns out also that placebo effects are equally effective! Placebo is a word that refers to an effect that is not known, an effect that has not been identified. It is an inadequate explanation for the unknown.

Treatment of depression is shifting away from the exclusive use of medication to a combination of meds and psychotherapy. There is also a shift toward psychotherapy alone as the treatment of choice, a trend that is accelerated by the unfortunate side effects of most medications. Placebos remain present, active and unidentified.

Subliminal Therapy is highly effective in treating depression, 83% as shown by recent research, a far higher number than is experienced with other treatments. Subliminal Therapy assumes that psychotherapy offers the best explanation treatment and works to identify its psychological cause, thereby to resolve it.

Subliminal Therapy and Addictions

Most of us find ourselves doing things that seem foolish even to us, and that we will do again anyway.  Things like frequently using an unfortunate word, popping our knuckles, or driving too fast.  We would not usually think of such things as addictions but they seem to fit that description.  Getting into more serious problems, we might also smoke cigarettes, have a gambling problem, become addicted to a street drug, or even to another person.

Yet, what about addictions to heroin and meth?  Is there a psychological basis for these addictions too, a force that is not chemical in nature?

Whether the addiction is to a chemical or to something that is not chemical, the actual roots of addiction, the force that propels the behavior over time, turns out to be the psychological force that is present.  If the chemical is not resupplied, our bodies will metabolize the chemicals over time.  Tobacco smoke, for example, is metabolized in about a week, while many months may be required to metabolize heroin.  The force that remains, the force that propels further use of the chemical, even after the body has metabolized the agents in the body, is a psychological force.

Subliminal Therapy is a uniquely effective way to identify and resolve those psychological forces.
