Hypnosis For Weight Loss. Does It Work?

Hypnosis For Weight Loss. Does It Work?

Hypnosis, when conducted properly, can make life changing differences to many people. Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation and almost altered consciousness, where people seemingly lose control of any voluntary actions. While hypnosis has the reputation of a ‘magician’ sort of effect, there is, in fact, a large amount of science and research behind it.

In reality, hypnosis does not remove free will from any individual, and individuals are still fully attentive and aware when they are hypnotized. During hypnosis, the individual is able to concentrate on one small aspect of a situation or memory while blocking out all other distractions and surroundings.

Despite many of the claims, hypnosis does not always work for everyone, and unfortunately, there is no way of knowing whether it will work without trying it. Hypnosis has traditionally been conducted by a professional therapist but in the modern world, this is changing.

It can often be expensive and time-consuming to see a specialist, which, unfortunately, puts many people off giving hypnosis a go. However, with the modern technology, many apps have been developed that enable anyone to experience the benefits of hypnosis in their own home.

Hypnosis has a long history of being used to treat various conditions such as depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, weight loss, and addictions such as smoking. While the research has varied in proving the effectiveness of this technique for some purposes, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence that suggests there is something to it.

Research that is more recent has investigated the applicability of hypnosis in pain management, particularly chronic pain; so far, the results seem promising but much more work is required.

Success In Weight Loss

Weight loss is one of the more successful areas where hypnosis has been applied. Both scientifically and anecdotally, hypnosis has helped many people who have been struggling with weight loss. Weight loss can be hard and many people have struggled with relying on traditional methods alone.

Hypnosis works slightly differently with weight loss – it can alter your unconscious mind and change the way you think about food and drink. For example, when eating a carrot almost everyone would rather it were carrot cake instead. However, hypnosis can help you to focus on the carrot and tune out any distractions – including wishing it were carrot cake instead. 

Hypnosis does not work like a traditional diet in that it does not tell you what you can and cannot eat. Instead, it focuses on retraining your brain to think differently about food, which ultimately changes what you want to eat.

Through hypnosis, many people have learned to change the way the view their own bodies, their eating habits and their thoughts on healthy food.

Exactly what happens during hypnosis will vary by individual, as each hypnosis session will be tailored to meet the exact individual needs.

Common techniques that are often employed during hypnosis for weight loss include imaging the body you want; seeing yourself achieve your weight loss goals; becoming more confident and energized to exercise and eat sensibly, and retraining your thoughts on food and exercise.

For example, hypnosis can help someone who has many cravings for fast food or sugary, unhealthy snacks.

By imaging the goals and body you want at the end of your weight loss journey, combined with focusing on the craving, you can actually reduce the desire for the food. This is essential in weight loss as so many people struggle with cravings.

Whenever you have the urge to eat something you know is not included in your diet, hypnosis can help you refocus on your goals, and why you are trying to lose weight in the first place. Hypnosis also helps you to focus on the healthy options and to actually enjoy them.

So many people eat food because it is part of the diet and don’t actually like it or enjoy eating it. Hypnosis can change the way you think about healthy and sensible food so you do start to like it and might even start to crave only healthy food that is allowed on the diet.

Overall, hypnosis can help you to develop a healthier mindset and attitude towards food. Both of these are essential components for anyone who is trying to lose weight.
