What is psychoneuroimmunology and how does it help to improve health? 


The Professional Master’s Degree Clinical Hypnosis and Relaxation of TECH allows to learn about the different disciplines such as psychoneuroimmunology to bring the right therapy to the patients 

Diseases are often related to the gut microbiota, which is related to the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems. For that reason, psychoneuroimmunology is based on the premise that emotions cause changes in the hormonal and immune systems and the nervous, immune, and endocrine systems interact with the bacteria we have in our intestines. The Professional Master’s Degree Clinical Hypnosis and Relaxation train psychologists to implement this discipline in their therapies. 

Considering the earlier point, psychoneuroimmunology has three main goals: 

  • Understanding the mechanism by which diseases are triggered, especially chronic pathologies and is done from a multidisciplinary holistic approach. 
  • It assumes that emotions, stress, anxiety, or depression causes changes in hormonal and immune systems. 
  • Consider that the nervous, immune, and endocrine systems interact with the bacteria in the gut. Therefore, these three systems are directly conditioned by the state of the intestinal microbiota. 

In summary, diseases reduce serotonin and dopamine levels, so an infection affects emotions, and this relationship also occurs in reverse, a low mood caused by stress increases histamine levels which cause other health problems. Professional who introduces this discipline in their therapies help to their patients to improve and supply treatment for depression, menstrual pain, constipation, ulcerative colitis, or migraines, also in the treatment of fungus, virus, parasite, or bacterium causing the imbalance in the microbiota.
