Hypnotherapy for Weight Loss

Usually clients that come to see me for weight loss are clients that have tried everything: from every fad diet, to pills, to religious gym regimes, to starving, to surgery, you name it. Here’s the good news: hypnosis can help. Using hypnosis for weight loss is not simply to target body fat, but it is used to get to the core reason as to why you are unable to lose or maintain a healthy weight.emotional eating

The goal is to be healthier, not thinner.
It’s nice to want a body like the models you’ve seen on the cover of ‘Health’ magazine but true health looks different on each individual depending on their blood type and body shape. Hypnotherapy for weight loss and weight control alters your neural pathways. This means, it edits how your subconscious perceives and reacts to food and exercise. Hypnosis for weight loss is tied in with the science of ultra-metabolism. This system affects your genes by using healthy foods to increase metabolism, and therefore, helping you burn calories.

Taking your individual lifestyle, stress level, blood type, age, and food choices into consideration, I can create a food plan just for you.

A habit we must break is ostressedur tendency to overeat when we’re feeling depressed or stressed. This is an issue because eating can be just as addictive and habitual as drug use. Dopamine and other brain chemicals that allow us to feel good are released when we eat foods high in fat and sugar. People who are feeling down in the dumps will turn to food for a quick pick-me-up. WebMD states that “once people experience pleasure associated with increased dopamine transmission in the brain’s reward pathway from eating certain foods, they quickly feel the need to eat again.” The link can be found here.

Together, we will work on four important factors that effect weight loss and maintenance.

  1. Reduce stress levels: According to Stress in America™: – American Psychological Association, “39% [of Americans] reported overeating or eating unhealthy food [due to stress].” We will work on finding other means of stress relief apart from food.
  2. Determine the psychological origins that prevent you from controlling your cravings and appetite, making good food and life choices, being consistent in exercise, and eating smaller portions. This will allow us to deal with the emotional aspect of your eating problem to break negative behavior patterns. We will institute new, positive eating habits and attitudes. This is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle. Blood type, genetics, portion control, and the amount of water you drink will be used to create and establish the new patterns that will break your addiction to carbohydrates, sugar and artificial substitutes.
  3. Help improve your self-image, self-esteem, and self-confidence. Having grounded self-love and positive motivation will keep you on the journey in pursuing your personal best.
  4. Help set up a connection between your mind and your body’s natural rhythm. Syncing your mind and body will help you understand when you’re eating for nutrition and when you’re desiring to eat because of stress.

Self-Medication Turned Self-Mutalation.

Addiction isn’t a pretty word. It’s, unfortunately, so often visually associated with junkies and emotionally tied to rebellion. Compassion is a helping hand never fully extended because, let’s be honest, assumptions keep us hesitant to fully committing ourselves to helping those who can’t help themselves.

In early years of development, our frontal lobes aren’t fully formed. This means all we know is adopted from the environment surrounding us. If those who influence us have unhealthy ways of coping, we might also. tumblr_static_filename_640_v2Addiction, contrary to what is thought, can be a learnt behavior. In a family where words are kept behind glasses of Bourbon, there’s a chance drinking could occupy the space reserved for conversation. Drugs are used for coping with the stress of family, work, identity, and everyday life. Addictions are a physical manifestation of an inner mewing. For many addicts, the use of drugs was a form of self-medication, but mutated into self-mutilation.

Some addictions aren’t even drug based. There can be addictions to sex, love, compulsions, and gossip. Imagine the inability to keep a secret. Addictions are more psychologically than neurologically rooted. Meaning they’re more mind than brain based. Compulsions are usually neurological. I have had tremendous success integrating Life Coaching and Hypnotherapy through neuroplasticity, but it’s important to identify the underlining irritations. So many problems can be solved and resolved with hypnosis.

Using Hypnotherapy to Quit Binge-Eating

A binge eaterWhen it comes to food, self-control has amazing benefits. But there is such a thing as obsessively trying to control one’s appetite, which is at the root of binge eating.

Binge eaters experience an addictive high over denying their hunger for long durations. Even when it makes sense to eat, they won’t regardless. Suddenly, just before succumbing to malnourishment or starvation, the binge-eater turns off the mechanism for self-control and “lets go.”

The scene isn’t one of joy and liberation! It is devastating to watch the people slip into absolute lack of concern for anyone, including themselves. Some will simply get up in the middle of the night, not having eaten for days, ransacking kitchen pantries and cabinets. They don’t care which food belongs to whom, or what things they’re eating, they’re just going to eat.

Although the pleasure is great, it isn’t worth the toll. Permanent damage to both the mind and body are inevitable. Stomach ulcers are common. So is sexual dysfunction, respiratory issues, low levels of focus.

Ask yourself: Is it necessarily desirable to eat in binges, putting yourself through guilt and shame, in order to feel confident?

No, I assure you: Clinical Hypnosis shows you to gain the same pleasure without having to risk your sanity each time. You learn self-management. No one, as far as I know, can survive happily on binges.

How Does Hypnosis Work?

When people think of hypnosis, unfortunately they think of stage hypnosis. This is not what real hypnosis is about. Hypnosis is based upon neuroplasticity, which means that the brain can actually change the way in which it receives information when put into a certain state.

During the process of hypnosis there a simply three parts. One is deep relaxation. Two is a form of disorientation where you’re really hearing everything that I’m saying but you’re in a awake and yet semi sleeping state. And the third is where I put into your brain everything that we previously discussed.

You are always in control. You always know what’s being said, and it is always in agreement with what you and I agree on.

And best of all, it works. It forms new neuro-pathways to information, removing fear, anxiety, depression, promoting weight control, the list goes on.

The bottom line is hypnosis is a science. It’s not a magic trick, nor is it something that cannot be seen by medical science such as a PT scan. Try it. Change your life.
