What is the Physical Cause of Blushing?
You might be a chronic blusher wondering, “What is the physical cause of blushing?”. This article will answer that question in depth and send you towards a blush-free life with tips and techniques to cure it. Let’s roll up our sleeves and dissect blushing from the very beginning.
First, the physical and mental constitution of a person play a vital role in whether they will blush. Your “constitution” refers to your unique body type; this includes weaknesses and strengths based on genetics, environment and such. You’ll notice some people never get a hint of pink in their cheeks after being teased or when talking to an audience. These people might seem invincible on the outside, but have issues in other areas. If you blush every so often, that’s fairly common and is probably nothing to worry about. If you start blushing intensely and chronically, this probably means you are a very sensitive person emotionally and physically…and something is out of balance.
Possible Physical Cause of Blushing
The physical causes of blushing for you are most likely a combination of all or some of the following:
1. Adrenal Exhaustion
2. Weak Digestive System
3. Reaction to newly developed food allergies
4. Intake of inflammatory substances (alcohol, caffeine, sugar)
On rare occasions, uncontrollable blushing might be caused by:
7. Menopause (hot-flashes)
8. Carcinoid syndrome
Either way, a blushing reaction is like an S.O.S flag from inside your body, telling you that something is not working right. I’m willing to bet you fall somewhere in the 1-4 category. Of course you should always visit a doctor or naturopath to deduce what you might have. Note: Most conventional doctors are not trained to treat adrenal fatigue or digestive weaknesses. Naturopaths and nutritionists are trained in that area.
Possible Psychological Cause of blushing
Each person’s mental construct is a delicate thing. Some people are conditioned early on and “inherit” fears and insecurities from those close to them and can develop negative associations with people, situations and events that cause irrational reactions. These mental patterns are apart of a persons entire “belief system” which is strongly rooted in who they are. If chronic enough, extreme emotional imbalances will inevitably manifest such as depression and anxiety…further becoming physical manifestations such as blushing, sweating or shortness of breath. Here is a short list of some Psychological factors associated with the cause of blushing:
1. Low-self esteem
2. Self-destructive thoughts
3. Fear of being judged
4. Desire to be perfect and accepted by others
How to Prevent the Physical and Mental Cause of Blushing
Many blushers get to the point where they don’t care why they blush and just want it to stop. There are a lot of blushing “quick fixes” out there, 90% of which do not focus on the problem at hand hence are not successful. If you’re blushing occurs mostly in social situations where you fear humiliation, you are being teased, you are laughing, you make a joke, you are speaking in front of people, you hear a loud noise…etc., you probably have a physical imbalance and a phobia of social situations for various reasons. The physical imbalance is probably digestive weakness, food allergies and adrenal fatigue. This can be cured by greatly reducing stress, cutting out inflammatory and processed foods and taking supplements as prescribed by a naturopath or nutritionist. The original phobia plus the new fear of blushing can be eradicated by using daily hypnosis. In fact, hypnosis is the most powerful way to cure blushing. It can even override some physical causes of blushing once you learn how to control it. In a blusher’s case, “Mind over Matter” is a very applicable phrase to remember.
Recommended Steps a Blusher Should take to Blushing
– First, download a hypnosis track that will train your brain to control and stop blushing.
– Second, deduce what you know of your constitution. What makes sense? Do you have trouble digesting certain foods, do you feel bad after a meal, do you cave under stress, are you moody? etc…
– Third, visit your doctor or a naturopath to pin-point and confirm what systems are weak and could be triggering blushing. Also ask for an adrenal test and a food-allergy test.
– Fourth, start changing your lifestyle by reducing stress, eating healthy foods, cutting back processed foods, drinking lots of clean water, and getting enough sleep.
– Fifth, be nice to yourself and know that blushing is a passing thing that will quickly be a thing of the past. You can do it!
