Successful Weight Loss Using Hypnotherapy

Successful Weight Loss

Struggling with the extra pounds can be a painful and overwhelming experience, considering the fact that we are living in an era when looks and money is all that matters. But, apart from the ‘society effects’, there is something even more important that comes into question and needs to be given a much bigger emphasis – HEALTH.

We all know that overweight people are faced with various health hazards that put their lives at risk if a big change is not made soon. Unfortunately, there is a small number of people who have achieved to win what once seemed a ‘never-ending battle’ with the extra pounds. Healthy nutrition and a lot of exercise are indeed a great weapon, but there is also one more that not many are brave enough to try. It is called hypnotherapy.

The truth is, a man’s unconscious mind may be convinced that certain obesogenic behaviors are very important means for helping the entire body system to function in a particular way. Here are few examples of people who firmly believe that obesogenic behaviours are essential to the body:

  • Food increases the feelings of comfort.
  • Food decreases the feelings of depression, sadness, anxiety and anger.
  • “Having a good time” refers to eating fatty, sugary, calorie-dense and processed foods.
  • Food is a “reward’ for going through difficult times in life, enduring difficulty or feeling lonely and not loved.
  • Food is a “reward” for a certain good behavior or achievement (personal/professional).
  • Food is a “defense” against the fear of failure.

What are the effects of hypnosis to lose weight?

The so-called working principle of hypnosis to lose weight is based on different types of positive suggestion. Take a look at few examples of how hypnosis as an effective treatment enhances the chances of weight-loss success.

  • Creating a so-called ‘inner ally’ that gives a strong support for making the challenging, but necessary changes.
  • Boosting the self-confidence and self-competence by using an affirming and encouraging language.
  • Creating a vision of an already achieved goal and how the person feels marvelously good about it.
  • Making a partnership with the unconscious mind and convincing it to make a change.
  • Giving comfort to that part of the person that is afraid of change.
  • Understating the reasons why the person has been using weight as a tool.
  • Removing the previous ‘use of eating’ and replacing it with the right one.
