As we all know, our mind is in control of every facet of our body; everything that we think or do is all controlled by our mind. The problem is that most of the mind’s influence occurs subconsciously. This means that even though something is happening we may not always be aware of why. This can apply to everything from breathing to overeating. Many people find themselves giving into cravings that seem to come from nowhere but are impossible to resist. Sooo frustrating, right?
This is where using hypnosis for weight loss has been proven to be highly successful for a vast number of people.
If you are considering using hypnosis for weight loss, you should first understand a little about how hypnosis works. When you are in a deep hypnotic state, your mind is susceptible to suggestions made by the hypnotist. In other words your subconscious mind is open to any new ideas, suggestions or commands. You will not remember any of these commands or suggestions on a conscious level, but your mind will act upon them regardless.
Hypnosis for weight loss is not a miracle cure. It is not a one session fix that will have you eating less and losing large amounts of weight with a single session. Rather it is a structured process that uses the hypnotic state to slowly reprogram your mind to eat a healthy diet and then reinforce this new thought pattern.
The main emphasis of hypnosis for weight loss is that it is necessary to reprogram the way you think about food, your eating habits and dieting. Most of us overeat for a reason, the most common one being some form of emotional outlet. For example, stress has been found to be a major cause of emotional eating. Using hypnosis techniques the hypnotist can teach your subconscious mind other ways to deal with stress besides eating, such as exercising.
While the results of using hypnosis for weight loss have been found to vary greatly, you should know that this type of behavioral modification therapy has a long record of success. Hypnosis therapy is thousands of years old and has been used to help people quit smoking, get rid of nervous habits, and reduce or eliminate phobias. When used as part of a healthy weight loss program that includes healthy foods and plenty of exercise it can help you lose those extra pounds very effectively .
