Harry's Health Advice Service

Hello! My name is Harry. I must start by explaining that I am not a medical professional and none of the advice in this blog should be used to diagnose an illness. The information in this blog will help you to gain a good knowledge and understanding of many different medical conditions and procedures, but if you have any symptoms or pain, you should always book an appointment with your local GP or visit the local emergency department at your local hospital. I have learnt about various medical conditions from my uncle who is a GP. He would often explain the different cases he had seen and would let me read his medical textbooks. I hope you find my blog useful.

When Willpower Doesn't Work Can Hypnosis Help You Lose Weight?

There are many reasons why losing weight is not working for you. It may be that you hate to exercise, so you don't go to the gym. Or, perhaps, your eating choices aren't quite as good as you would like them to be. Lack of willpower when you see a plate of biscuits handed around is another problem. One thing you may not have tried for weight loss is hypnosis. Before you dismiss it as just a cheeky mind trick to make you act like a chicken, it is time to enlighten yourself on how hypnosis really can help you to lose kilos.

Does Hypnosis Work For Everyone?

There is no guarantee about anything, but some people are more agreeable to hypnosis than others. In particular, people who cannot lose weight because they unconsciously graze on food throughout the day are good candidates for hypnosis. If you eat without realising it, then you need to retrain your mind to put thought into what is going into your mouth, and this is where hypnosis can help you. People who emotionally eat and lack the willpower to say no to bad food choices are also good candidates for hypnotherapy treatment. Hypnosis gives your brain the willpower it needs to say no. At your first hypnotherapy session, a discussion about your eating triggers takes place.

Do I Have To Talk About Eating Habits With The Hypnotherapist?

Yes, you will need to have an in-depth discussion about your eating habits. The reason for this is that the therapist needs to know what is triggering your eating issues. You will outline what eating plans have worked for you in the past, and which ones have not. For example, do you tend to lose more weight if you watch your carb intake rather than calorie counting? Your therapist will also want to know what your goals are so that they can include the right type of message during the treatment.

How Does Hypnosis Work?

Hypnosis is described as changing the volume of the voices in your brain. The hypnotherapist works on your subconscious, which is where you make decisions about what you are going to eat. Your subconscious is taught to be louder about making healthy choices when your brain says, "Hey, look at that piece of chocolate cake."

The best way to see if hypnotherapy can work for you and your weight loss goals is to make an appointment and go to the first session with an open mind. You have nothing to lose except those unwanted kilos!
