Attitude about food is stressed more than diet when treating you in hypnosis. When attitude about food is the focus, weight loss can be maintained longer. The probability of success will be higher this way. When you create a new relationship with food, your body, and with life itself you can unlearn old destructive behaviors and relearn new constructive ones.
Research into Cognitive Behavioral weight loss treatments established that weight loss is greater when hypnosis is utilized. It was also established that the benefits of hypnosis increase over time. It is like the snowball effect. The snowball effect is what you experience with several hypnosis sessions, in which each session reinforces and enhances the relief created by previous sessions. The reality is that it helps create permanent change.
Hypnosis for weight loss helps to accelerate your learning process of transforming so that what may have taken you years to achieve can be restructured with just a few sessions. Hypnosis for weight loss is being used in major medical institutions such as Harvard Medical School, UCLA, Stanford, Kaiser Permanente, Beth Israel Deaonness Hospital and many burn centers are also using hypnosis. Getting to the source is key for success when it comes to wanting behavioral change in any area of your life (Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology 1996).
Some possible causes for weight gain are the following:
- Emotional attachment to food
- Learned Family Identification
We will begin to think of each eating event as a separate event on a continuous chain, like a timeline. Each event is a chance for you to nourish your mind, body and soul. When you begin to learn to look at eating in this new way you can become free of the emotional burden you might be caring around and stop self sabotaging your progress and best efforts at control. There is no more thinking “I’ll try again tomorrow.” The same concept is used when learning to let go of pounds. This becomes doable with your new perspective. All it takes is a desire to change, a decision to act, and a little help from your subconscious mind and a trained professional.
