it doesn’t work miracles. It’s not a magic bullet that immediately makes
you love exercise. It is a deep state of relaxation and intense mental focus
that can help you re-program old attitudes and beliefs about eating and
maintaining a healthy weight.
you’re in a state of hypnosis, your subconscious mind is more available to
you, more open to receive suggestions that will become a natural part of new
behaviors” explains Mark Avnet,
Founder and Director of the New England Hypnotherapy Center.
to your subconscious mind bypass the critical mind, which you use day-to-day
and go straight to the part of the mind that controls habits” he added.
“These allow you to go through with any changes you have decided to make in
of the messages seem pretty simple - and they are.
It’s just where they reside that makes the difference. Suggestions
such as “you eat only in response to your body’s natural need for food as
fuel” or “you feel completely satisfied with three small nutritious meals
a day” or “your enjoyment of a regular exercise program grows with each
time you visit the gym.” Repetition
of these suggestions can boost your determination and enhance your conscious
and it is a big but – Hypnosis alone is not enough.
It takes a combination of behavioral modification and understanding to
achieve a permanent healthy eating pattern.
A well-trained hypnotherapist addresses all the issues - because once
you realize why you are eating when you are not hungry, you can begin to
change that behavior.
imagery is another important part of hypnosis. While in a hypnotic trance,
your hypnotherapist may lead you through an imaginary journey seeing yourself
in clothes that you have grown out of. You
might imagine the positive comments of friends or co-workers.
You might be encouraged to use all five senses to experience yourself
growing thinner, stronger, and healthier.
Studies show that the more real your inner experience, the more likely
the final results will match your mental imagery.
it’s not magic, hypnosis, when used as part of an overall program of
behavioral modification and attitude adjustment, can be that extra dimension
your weight loss program needs for long-term success.
And a good hypnotherapist teaches the client self-hypnosis as a part of
the treatment program. In the battle of the bulge, it can just be the tool
that makes the difference between success and failure.
