Growing research indicates that medical hypnosis supports long-term weight loss. One such study demonstrated that hypnosis was an effective adjunct to weight management. Published in the Journal of Clinical Psychology, the study suggested that clients who subscribed to hypnotherapy not only lost the weight, but continued to lose weight up to two years after the hypnosis treatment ended!
While there is no magic pill for weight loss, this study shows that hypnosis supports diet and exercise adherence. How? Well, hypnosis works with the subconscious mind to alter your conscious behavior. In other words, rather than focus solely on your actions (your conscious mind), hypnotherapy addresses the stressors and triggers that drive you to overeat (subconscious mind). Hypnosis is effective because it works on the level of feelings, patterns, and unconscious motivations. It’s much better when we feel we want to eat healthily rather than just think that we should.
Used well, hypnosis will help you to naturally feel like making healthier choices.
