Using Hypnosis To Lose Weight

Sometimes the secret to weight loss can be as simple as knowing what causes you to eat. One of the problems some people have when it comes to losing weight is that they have a wide variety of different triggers for eating, or events that can create in them a desire to eat. By determining what those triggers the person can then take steps to prevent those events from causing the person to eat. One of those methods is hypnosis; by using post-hyponotic commands those triggers can be foiled and the person can then lose weight at a relatively faster rate, and then enjoy a healthier life.

The basic idea is that the hypnotist puts the patient into a relaxed state that is on the border between wakefulness and dreaming; he is under enough that the state is relaxing and he is receptive to suggestion, but not far enough that he is in a dreaming state. This allows the hypnotist to make suggestions that the patient will likely heed when he wakes, allowing him to modify the patient’s behavior as per prior conversations; this behavior modification is far more easily accomplished than other methods, and requires less time than those other methods. That makes it much better for some, especially those seeking to avoid the pain of other methods. This is part of what makes it such an effective weight loss method.

While there are those that are resistant to hypnosis, the remainder are susceptible to the suggestions given while they are under. As noted the hypnotist and patient will discuss what the triggers are that cause the patient to either overeat or eat far too often, and then gear the suggestions towards dealing with those triggers. By dealing with those triggers, and possibly suggesting more helpful suggestions on what to eat instead of the usual items that are contributing to the weight problem. By having a thorough discussion of the suggestions that will implemented, it helps to ensure that the suggestions will stick when the person comes out of the unconscious state.

Hypnosis can be really effective, especially for those who take it seriously. If you have any questions about its efficacy those should be addressed as soon as possible; hypnosis does not work for everyone, after all. Nonetheless for the vast majority of people that it does work for it can be an effective means of weight control, and can help a person lead a healthier life that they can be proud of.
