Weight Loss by Hypnosis

by : Terry Edwards

Weight loss by hypnosis can be the answer to many people's prayers, if done correctly. For those who have struggled with weight loss, jumping from one diet to the next, hypnosis may hold the key that will finally enable them to change their life. There are many misconceptions about hypnosis. This article will explain what hypnosis is and what it isn't and how it can help with weight loss.

Hypnosis is not being put under another person's control. This myth has been made popular by stage shows. You will not cluck like a chicken or crawl around on your hands and knees when hypnotized. In reality, hypnosis is simply a natural state in which the subconscious mind can come forward and be modified to make a change in a person's habits.

Overeating, smoking and other addictions are habits that have gone beyond conscious control. Therefore, tapping into the subconscious will help you gain control of these bad habits and stop them once and for all.

An induction is defined as the act of bringing someone into a hypnotic state. This is usually done by imagery. It can be self-induced or done by a qualified hypnotherapist. You imagine yourself in a peaceful, safe place to help you become totally relaxed. You are then guided into a specific problem area.

A person that is overweight became that way because of unhealthy eating habits. These habits are very difficult to change on your own. Hypnosis can help you break these habits by decreasing your cravings for the unhealthy foods and helping you focus on making the right decisions.

It is important to understand that hypnosis is not like a "magic pill" that will suddenly make the pounds start dropping off. It is a tool to aid you in making a lifestyle change.

The great thing about hypnosis is that it is non-invasive. It is not a one size fits all solution. Since everyone is different, hypnosis sessions can be adapted to fit the individual.

Weight loss by hypnosis often succeeds when all other traditional treatments have failed. It will get to the core of why the person is overweight and help them change their beliefs that make them overindulge.

But be aware that hypnosis is not recommended for people who have post-traumatic stress syndrome, epilepsy or any other personality disorders. It will also require work. Hypnosis can change the way you think about food, but it's up to you to implement these changes through a healthy diet and exercise.

So if you have tried everything and nothing has worked, you may want to try weight loss by hypnosis. You have nothing to lose but a lot of extra weight!
