Hypnotherapy and weightloss

Sunday 2nd November 2014

Because over eating is a habit and habits are run by the unconscious part of your mind. Hypnotherapy and neuro-linguistic-programming (NLP) are the perfect tools to get permanent results in weight loss and indeed any other bad habit that you wish to rid yourself of.

Suggestions to your unconscious mind while in trance about change can be very powerful. The use of visualisations for motivation is very important. Of course these suggestions and visualisations can be made during in the normal waking state, but they are amplified during a trance state.

There are many reasons why people over eat. Weight gain often coincides with a traumatic event in a person’s life. Comfort eating is probably the number one reason for weight gain. Again hypnotherapy is the perfect tool for getting people to let go of past traumas and once a person is free of these issues their weight often returns normal. Weight gain is compounded by the calorie rich fast foods that are readily available to us all in the modern world.

It is now widely accepted that “diets” don’t work, at least not in the long term. Recent research as shown that exercise, though beneficial in reducing stress and has other health benefits, is not the answer. A one hour training session in the gym will not make up for ten hours of sedatory activity sat behind a desk. Stress also plays a part in the weight gain story so look for ways to reduce your stress levels. Sleep is very important. If you are not properly rested your mind and body will try to compensate by increasing your appetite.
