Is Your Weight Heavy On Your Mind?
Dr. Terry Doherty
Food is an addiction. Nutrition is an addiction. Weight
Loss is an addiction. People all over the world are united
in the fact that being healthy and feeling better about yourself
is the best choice for everyone. For an overweight person
or a person who has been medically defined as obese, this
simple fact can weigh heavily on the mind. Losing weight seems
like an easy task, but when food is an addiction, there are
very real reasons why eating is more comfortable than the
treadmill. The mind is at the centre of all decisions we make
in life and the mind can control the food we eat. When food
becomes more about pleasure than about sustenance, an addiction
can be created and the very real side effect is extensive
weight gain and health issues related to that weight gain.
Hypnosis and Weight Loss
To understand how hypnosis can be effective in treating
overeating and food addiction, we must first look at the nature
of the addiction. Food has become the centre of celebrations,
from birthday parties to weddings, one of the first things
on the "to-do" list is the food that will be served. In reality,
the body does not need food that tastes great in order to
survive and thrive. It simply needs foods that will provide
the proper levels of vitamins, nutrients and calories to keep
the body in tip top shape.
Once food becomes the centre of our world, we begin to show
real signs of food addiction. The brain actually reacts to
the sight of food by releasing endorphins and making us feel
happier. Eating that food increases that feeling of happiness
and then, hours later, when the food has digested and that
sinking feeling begins to fill our stomachs, we realize that
life should be more about living and less about eating.
Food addiction is a learned event and hypnosis can get the
bottom of the subconscious triggers that cause us to feel
the need for certain foods. Hypnosis retrains the mind to
react in a normal way when food is seen and teaches us to
stay in touch with our bodies needs more closely and to shy
away from those wants that drive us to eat in overabundance.
A Natural Weight Loss Solution
Hypnosis is a natural and self propelled choice for weight
loss. The slimming qualities of hypnosis are cantered in the
fact that our minds were once trained to stop eating when
we were full. Paediatricians will tell you that a baby can
not overeat. They stop eating as soon as they are full and
do not want more food or snacks until they are hungry again.
Overeating is a learned behaviour that can be unlearned in
order to provide a smooth, easy transition from being overweight
to being a normal healthy weight naturally. There are no supplements,
no pills promising to make you lose 30 pounds in 20 days.
Just a natural progression from the learned overeating behaviour
to the new behaviour that is native to the brain.
If you are tired of reading about this new weight loss program
and you are simply feeling overwhelmed by all of the products
on the market that promise to help you lose weight without
you ever having to change your diet, think hypnosis. The step
by step program moves along as you see fit and provides subconscious
guidance for the mind to return to its natural state, the
state that the brain was born with. An eating regime that
is out of need and not out of want.
