The internet pornography business is huge. The industry nets more than $15 billion a year, and profits largely off of the addictions and sexual issues of the people who are watching these videos.

If you are one of these people, and you’re tired of being taken advantage of by the porn industry, don’t worry. Seeking a holistic coach who is qualified to help treat porn addictions can help you identify the source of the problem and work to free yourself from the shackles of pornography.

 

What Is a Porn Addiction?

When people think of addiction, often the first thing that they consider is an addiction to a substance of some sort – usually drugs or alcohol. The effects of drug and alcohol addictions (substance addiction) are usually easier to observe, and can be obviously related to the consumption of various substances.

However, there are other forms of addiction known as behavior addictions. Porn addiction is one such addiction. These addictions can be a little bit more difficult to diagnose or even recognize because the person is not actually ingesting a physical substance into their body.

Regardless, pornography addiction is a real thing that can have a number of adverse affects on an individual.

A pornography addiction occurs when someone is unable to stop watching porn, despite some of the negative consequences that may emerge in their life as a result of watching porn. They also may think about porn a lot of the time, and become uncomfortable if they aren’t able to watch it for an extended period of time.

The combination of psychological factors can make pornography addiction difficult to deal with. Furthermore, it can lead to problems in intimate relationships and can even adversely affect a person’s school or work life.

If you think that you or someone that you love is struggling with a porn addiction, consider some of the following signs and symptoms that could be an indicator:

  • Spending a lot of money on pornographic material, or having large sums of money unaccounted for as a result
  • Masturbating multiple times daily to porn
  • Watching porn for large amounts of time
  • Foregoing chores, personal hygiene, or other healthy habits to watch pornography
  • Missing school, skipping out on work, or avoiding social meetings because of a desire to watch pornography
  • Feeling uncomfortable when in an environment that you cannot watch porn
  • Sneaking off to the bathroom when you are at a friend’s house or at work to watch pornography
  • Being unable to achieve sexual satisfaction or arousal without watching pornography
  • Developing issues in your relationship, or being unable to perform sexually because of a preference for pornography

If you have noticed any of the above issues, then it would be a wise idea to begin seeking treatment for a pornography addiction.

 

Holistic Coaching for Pornography Addiction

If you are struggling with a porn addiction, the best option for you is to seek a holistic coach. Holistic coaches excel at treating process and behavioral addictions, and work to integrate all aspects of your being to help seek a solution to the problem.

This differs from the purely psychological approach that you might expect from a therapist, or a purely physical approach that a recovering drug addict may take by simply abstaining from drugs. Holistic coaching uses a lot of different practices to help you develop a holistic understanding of your problem and help you manage both the mental and physical aspects of the problem.

Some of the best and most effective holistic coaching practices are:

Somatoemotional Repatterning

Somatoemotional repatterning is a process that uses the same energetic pathways, or meridians, that are manipulated during acupuncture or other forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Science has long since proved the existence of these meridians. What somatoemotional repatterning acknowledges is that these meridians may have blockages or issues transporting energy throughout the body. These blockages can manifest as both physical and psychological issues.

One of the issues that can be corrected by managing imbalances in the energetic system is addiction. By helping to identify these blockages, holistic coaches can help you overcome your porn addiction.

Biofeedback

Biofeedback is a treatment that can help clients understand and gain control over involuntary impulses.

You will have sensors attached to your body that will respond to certain biological cues – such as a subtle increase in heart rate or body temperature that occurs when you think of porn and start to become aroused.

By providing feedback about these issues, you will be better able to learn about and control your cravings for porn.

In Conclusion

Internet porn addiction is a real problem that can have negative effects on a person’s life. Fortunately, there are a number of ways that you can manage the problem by seeking out a holistic coach.

If this is something you or a loved one struggles with, please contact me right away. Together we can begin walking the road to freedom.
