The Skinny on Hypnosis
Dr. Terry Doherty
Weight loss can be one of the hardest things in life to
handle. Food is an addiction and the mind rules the roost
when it comes to addiction. Take back that control and utilize
the alternative methods of hypnosis to curb that appetite.
Hypnosis is a relatively new alternative medicine, but one
that is gaining great popularity in the area of weight loss.
When a person becomes addicted to food there is nothing that
can be done to break that addiction unless the mind and the
body work together. Commonly, the person trying to lose weight
will be gung ho for the first few days and then the mind plays
the hunger trick and the weight is put right back on. This
time, instead of falling off the weight loss wagon, take back
the control by changing how the mind thinks about food.
Food is needed by the body in order to function in every day
life. The food we eat is transformed into energy and that
energy is utilized by the body for every day processes. When
too much food is consumed, there are a few changes that take
place. The stomach is stretched and thus needs more food to
feel full. The mind begins to think food is there to calm
it and make it feel better and the person soon becomes addicted
to the feeling they get from the instant carbohydrate high
most often associated with overeating foods that are high
in simple sugars.
In order to beat this addiction, the mind needs to be convinced
that the food is no longer something it wants, but that can
be a difficult task without a little help. Hypnosis can break
down the walls of addiction and convince the mind to leave
food behind and take back the more natural state of thought
regarding food. Once your mind relieves you of the need for
food, you will be able to make better choices regarding the
food you eat. The better food choices you make, the better
you will eat and the less calories you will consume. Weight
loss is inevitably the end outcome to such a change.
Imagine how it would feel to sit down at the dinner table
and see the food in front of you as a necessity rather than
a treat. That simple change can mean all the difference in
weight loss. Once the mind's thought process is changed through
the use of retraining methods and hypnosis, the stomach will
begin to shrink and the food consumption will return to an
as needed state, rather than the as wanted state that created
the need to lose weight in the first place.
While some people have the innate ability to control their
own minds, these people are often not the ones that battle
with weight loss for years. There is nothing wrong with getting
a little help and retraining the mind to want less food. If
it takes hypnosis to create a healthier, leaner you then so
be it. The body will thank you for taking the time to change
and you will live a longer life thanks to the reduction in
weight on the body.
The time to fight that food addiction alone is gone and the
time to regain that control is here. Now you can sit through
a session of hypnosis and come out thinking less about how
much you want to eat that food for lunch and more about what
kinds of food are good to be placing in the body. Your body
is your temple and today is the day to give back to that precious
Weight loss can be one of the hardest things in life to handle.
Food is an addiction and the mind rules the roost when it
comes to addiction. Take back that control and utilize the
alternative methods of hypnosis to curb that appetite.
