How Hypnosis Helps With Weight Loss

cdwln

Contrary to popular belief and its portrayal by the media, hypnosis is not mystical in nature, and neither is it some kind of magic trick or illusion. In fact, it’s about as harmless as closing your eyes, relaxing, and imagining a positive image of yourself.

But hypnosis is powerful, even if it’s based on the power of mind over body. And it’s this same power that makes hypnosis perfect for boosting your weight loss efforts. According to a study published in the US National Library of Medicine, “Controlled trial on the use of hypnotherapy, as an adjunct to dietary advice in producing weight loss, has produced a statistically significant result in favour of hypnotherapy.”

But how exactly does hypnosis for weight loss work? The transformative power of a hypnotherapy session may seem hard to believe, so it helps to understand how this emphasis on mind over body helps you control your eating habits and lose weight.

  1. It’s All in Your Mind

You have all the weapons they need to lose weight. Rather than treat food as fuel, many people turn to food to satisfy cravings or as a way to cope with their emotions. A hypnotherapist helps you realize that cravings, whether it’s sugar treats or crunchy chips, are all in your mind.

Likewise, your attempts to lose weight through diet and exercise ultimately boil down to commitment and motivation—all of which start with in your mind.

  1. Hypnosis Helps You Stay Positive

Scary messages like, “Greasy foods will give you a heart attack” or “Too much sweets will cause diabetes” can certainly work, but more often than not, they only last for a limited time. In contrast, positive suggestion through hypnosis has a more lasting effect. Messages like, “A healthy body will make me happy” or “Eating healthy will make me feel and look good,” are definitely more upbeat, helping you stay positive on the arduous road to losing weight.

  1. Hypnosis Helps You Visualize

Similar to how athletes visualize winning matches and games, imagining a day of eating healthy and exercising to lose pounds will help the task become easier. If you’re having problems imagining, your hypnotherapist can help you remember and focus on a time when you were at a comfortable and healthy weight.

  1. It Helps You Beat Your Cravings

Many hypnotherapists like to use the power of symbolic images, encouraging patients to visualize their food cravings as real objects locked away in a box, or buried under the ground. It’ll seem like a simple thing, but images have a powerful effect in real life. Have you ever experienced feeling nostalgic when you see a McDonald’s sign, or feeling homesick when you see something that reminds you of home? That’s the power of imagery at work.

Bottom line? Hypnosis is a gentle yet powerful approach to supplementing your weight loss efforts, whether it’s an exercise regimen, a diet program, or both.

Sincerely,
