Many individuals around the world are embracing healthy living as a way of life. In a bid to lose weight, many have turned to many forms such as juicing, working out, dieting and many more. Hypnosis and hypnotherapy are also some widely used techniques for weight loss.
First, it is essential to understand that hypnosis is not a permanent solution for weight loss: hypnotherapy is. So why is hypnotherapy a more effective method than simple hypnosis?
Many people find a hypnotist to lose around ten pounds, perhaps because they want to fit in maybe a wedding dress or swimsuit in a few months. You can do this in a single session, a small group, or a large group. Hypnosis is beneficial in such situations. The individual will be hypnotized, put into a light trance state and given suggestions such as
- Feeling motivated to work out
- Seeing yourself at the desired weight
- Feeling the desire to eat healthily
The issue is this can be only temporary for many people seeking treatments for weight loss. When what is motivating someone – like a wedding is over, many people tend to lose motivation to lose weight and will often return to their previous bad habits and regain the weight they had lost.
Hypnotherapy as an effective treatment for weight loss
With millions of people globally trying to lose weight, others are aggressively promoting and commercializing many weight loss techniques, which makes it extremely hard to find a method that works.
A qualified hypnotherapist will ask some questions to determine how hypnotherapy can best help you in attaining your desired weight. The therapist will establish whether you have a habit of emotional eating – means you eat for reasons more than hunger. For instance when you are feeling angry, stressed, guilty, scared, lonely, unhappy, or just plain bored.
Do you eat just because it is lunch or dinnertime? Do you use food to reward yourself? Most importantly, are you addicted to high-calorie foods like fast foods, bread, pizza, or sweets?
Emotional eating is more like addiction and is worse because it is a direct link between obesity and the illnesses due to obesity. If hypnosis is not working, then hypnotherapy from a certified hypnotherapist that knows to use techniques that will establish the cause of your weight gain will work. Your deeper issues must be determined, addressed, and resolved by a therapist who is willing to give more than simple suggestions hoping they work.
Millions of people are desperate to lose weight and will do anything. Others try surgeries, some drugs in an attempt to lose weight or stop certain eating habits. However, some of these techniques are not effective, and many people always regain weight. It is essential to find a technique that addresses the psychological aspect causing weight gain and emotional eating. Hypnotherapy offers a more effective solution in the end.
