Interesting Facts About Weight Loss Hypnosis

May 28, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 170

There are many ways of losing weight, ranging from dieting to the extreme measure of surgery. If you have an interest in the art of hypnosis then weight loss hypnosis might be a route for you to use. Hypnotherapy may be used to prevent you from doing something e.g. Smoking but it can also be used to alter your habits.

This therapy alters your consciousness from its normal state to that similar of being in a trance. When in this state, your mind is fully focused and as such is much more responsive to suggestion than normal. Without distractions the hypnotherapist can introduce ideas into your mind in such a way that these memories remain.

There are many reliable hypnotherapists in practice; you should easily be able to find one who is recommended in your area. Another idea is to purchase a tape or CD, put on some headphones and listen to the therapy that way. Anyone may learn the techniques of hypnosis and as such you could be your own hypnotherapist.

In therapy, to give up smoking subjects are urged to stop, told it is a nasty habit that will make them ill, a kind of aversion therapy. We need our brains programmed to feel good about things, if we are rewarded with nice thoughts and boosts to our self esteem we are more likely to succeed. Obviously aversion therapy to food would be unwise, so this kind of therapy needs to teach us to eat more wisely. Hypnosis reaches the subconscious mind and sets a new set of rules in which we will believe.

Using verbal repetition the hypnotist can instill in the subject's brain the idea that healthy food will make us feel good. He may list those foods most suitable, urging the use of smaller portions and ceasing meals once you are full. He might use aversion therapy to urge the dieter to avoid certain foods.

However, what is important is that the person who wishes to lose weight is told they will feel good when dieting so their self-esteem and self-confidence will rise when they do eat the right foods. Maybe the therapist might suggest that your cream cakes no longer interest you. They might suggest that fresh fruit tastes wonderful and eating it will make you feel fit and strong. If you eat well and feel good you will go down a size or two and look good too.

We all know that it is not just dieting that induces weight-loss, exercise is equally important. The therapist might induce thoughts of feeling good following a walk in the park, a swim or a work out in the gym. He might tell the patient to walk to the shop for a newspaper rather than drive the car.

Successful weight loss hypnosis may result in the susceptibility of the subject. The person wishing to lose weight needs to be able to relax and open their mind to the experience. Not everyone is suitable. Hypnotherapy does not work well on those who have no wish to be hypnotized. Intoxication prevents the mind from being receptive. Above all, you do need a good hypnotherapist who inspires confidence in you.
