Why weight loss hypnosis can help you achieve your dieting goals
A new treatment that combines hypnosis and talking therapies to help you to lose weight and keep it off in the longer term.
Everybody knows that being overweight is bad for your health, increasing the risk of a range of serious health conditions, from depression, heart disease and strokes, to type 2 diabetes and cancer. However, improving your diet and losing the excess weight is not always straightforward.
In desperation, many people turn to extreme measures to help them shift the pounds, but often these weight loss solutions can cause more harm than good.
Although they offer impressive short-term results, fad diets can cause a range of issues, including eating disorders and nutritional deficiencies, and they don’t work in the longer-term, with the majority of dieters regaining the weight they lost. And people who opt for the more extreme measure of getting a gastric band fitted may see the pounds dropping away, but they have to deal with the risks and recovery associated with major surgery.
In contrast, hypnotherapy for weight loss helps people to lose weight safely and effectively, without going under the knife.
Tackling the root of the problem
For many people, their weight issues stem from a problematic or unhealthy relationship with food. Weight loss hypnotherapy aims to tackle this by combining hypnosis and visualisation techniques with talking therapies such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Neurolinguistic Programming. This enables therapists to get to the root cause of any issues, devising solutions that really work and transforming a problematic relationship with food into a healthier more positive one.
Non-surgical gastric band
The core concept of hypnosis for weight loss is centred around the traditional hypnosis technique of visualisation, harnessing the power of the brain to help clients literally ‘think themselves thin’. Visualisation is an incredibly powerful tool that has been proven to have a noticeable physical impact on the body and, in the case of weight loss hypnotherapy, it is used to calibrate the signals that control digestion and feelings of fullness. The client is walked through a number of visualisation exercises, and is eventually asked to visualise having a gastric band fitted. The idea is that this offers the weight loss benefits of gastric band surgery without going under the knife.
Longterm lifestyle change
What really makes weight loss hypnotherapy stand out from the plethora of fad diets is its commitment to helping clients make long term changes to their lifestyle. It takes a truly holistic approach that ultimately aims to change the way that people think about food and eating, creating a more positive mindset and furnishing clients with the willpower they need to make permanent adjustments to their diet. Follow-up diet and nutrition advice further supports clients to make the changes they need to lose weight.
Hypnotherapy may sound like an unconventional weight loss method but, being unconventional doesn’t make it any less effective. The treatment boasts a long list of satisfied clients with many reporting significant weight loss – more than half their body weight in some cases.
So, if you’ve been struggling to lose weight and are reluctant to go under the knife, weight loss hypnosis could be the safe, effective and long-lasting solution to your dieting problems.
