Hypnosis can actually help a person focus on a goal that they have otherwise been unable to see through. Hypnosis, on its own can never make you lose weight, rather if used along with a healthy diet and exercise regime, will help you develop a stronger will power and eventually lose weight.
Hypnosis refers to an alternate, trance like state of consciousness, usually done by a hypnotherapist. The hypnotherapist uses mental images and verbal repetitions to create a trance like state in a person. A person, who is hypnotized, can actually become more focused and become more responsive to a suggestion. A person can also learn self hypnotizing techniques in order to get more focused and goal oriented.
How Successful Is Hypnosis For Weight Loss?
This technique has not been thoroughly studied, but the results of hypnosis for weight loss are positive. Hypnosis alone will never make a person lose weight; rather it helps a person develop his or her will power to reach their weight loss goals. A good exercise and diet program is necessary to lose weight in a safe and healthy way, and to make sure that the weight remains off. Hypnosis helps a person stick to strict diet and exercise regimes, which would be otherwise very cumbersome to follow for long periods of time.
What Methods Are Used For Weight Loss Hypnosis?
Hypnosis methods consist of repetitive verbal and mental images and suggestions which make a person fall into a ” “trance like” state. In reality all methods of hypnosis actually depend upon how receptive a person is to these suggestions and mental images. Hypnosis tries to penetrate the sub consciousness of an individual and programs them to follow a certain task or suggestion. When it comes to weight loss, the biggest struggle that people face is trying to follow diets and exercise programs. Hypnosis helps a person develop their will power to stick to these regimes without fail and reach their goals, rather than get off track time and again. In the end all sorts of hypnosis methods eventually turn into self-hypnosis, whether a person reaches a trance like state on their own, or with the help of a hypnotherapist all depends upon how receptive the person is to the method.
