As I am establishing myself as a Certified Hypnotist in the Brattleboro area, working out of the Biologic Wellness Center, I have been receiving many emails with questions about hypnosis. I have decided to create a column to answer questions that many people have asked. This way, if you have an interest in hypnosis, there will be information published here each week.
First popular question is: How can I lose weight through hypnosis?
Hypnosis is like magic because it easily helps to make powerful changes in dietary and health habits. When partnering with your physician’s weight control plan, hypnosis brings a lighter you in a healthy, comfortable manner. Hypnosis has the power to end your struggle with food by changing the way you think. It is an artificially induced state of deep relaxation and concentration to heighten your receptivity to suggestion. In simple terms, hypnosis is a tool that allows you to bypass certain critical faculties of the conscious mind – those critical faculties that tell you eating loads of fat and sugar makes you happy.
Imagine looking in a mirror and loving what you see. You are trim and more attractive. You feel good about yourself. You eat only when you are hungry and have no cravings for unhealthy foods. You are now in total control of yourself when it comes to eating. All of these things are possible with hypnosis for weight control.
Before hypnosis, the client and I discuss personalized goals for weight control. Next, I will guide you through visualization and relaxation exercises to attain the state of hypnosis. Once in the state of hypnosis, your subconscious mind is open to positive suggestion. During this time, I repeat your goals as suggestions to your subconscious mind. When finished, you are brought back to normal consciousness. We all experience the state of hypnosis on a daily basis while daydreaming, watching TV, reading a book, making love, dancing, exercising, listening to music or while we are engaged in some routine activities that leave our imagination free to wander. All of us enter this state of heightened suggestibility every night just before we fall asleep and every morning before we are fully awake.
Hypnosis works. Marketing experts use it all the time. Each year, the average American will see more 10,000 food ads on TV and almost all of those ads are pushing soft drinks, fast foods and sweet treats. It is very interesting to note that our government spent around $2 million on its nutrition-education program last year. Not bad, but the more interesting part is that McDonald's alone spent $500 million on its ‘We Love to See You Smile’ campaign in the same time period. Makes you wonder how much more money is being spent by big corporations to influence Americans subconsciously to eat foods that are unhealthy.
