Lose Weight Fast Using Hypnosis

Updated on April 18, 2012

Lose it fast and keep it off

Losing weight can be one of the most frustrating attempts, especially, if you have struggled with weight issues for most of your life. For many, all these tricks and confusing messages that people shove down your throat, about how to lose weight fast, does really frustrate.

How can we know the method that actually works?

unfortunately, there is no way of knowing which method is likely to yield better results until you try it. All of these weight loss diets and exercises will give certain claims, but until you see them work for you or for someone else, you must be skeptical.

There are many people that have depleted their savings, fighting weight problems. Others have gotten rich as a result of offering formulas, diets and supplements. The industry keeps growing because people need real solutions as their problem is real. You may be one of those who has moved from hospital to hospital, specialist-to-specialist, church-to-church and healer to healer, looking for help. And, nothing has worked for you yet.

Here is a phenomenon you need to try - Hypnotherapy.

Does Hypnotherapy Work?

Experts in the behavioral sciences and mental health fields are probably better placed to give us an accurate answer. According to a study by radiologists at Harvard Medical School, published in 2000, patients who received hypnosis during their surgery required less medication, had fewer complications and their procedures were relatively shorter than patients who did not have hypnosis.There are other numerous testimonies of individuals who have struggled with trauma, pain, and weight problems, that are finding help with hypnotherapy.

As a scientifically proven and recommended form of treatment, Hypnotherapy uses the techniques of hypnosis. According to the American Psychological Association, hypnosis is a cooperative interaction between the client or participant, and the hypnotist, where the client acts on the suggestions given by the hypnotist. The client is helped to become more aware of their own subconscious state, thoughts and behaviors.

Hypnotists are specialists trained in a special science of psychotherapy.

Hypnosis' popularity has been growing rapidly in recent years as a form of psychotherapy. However, due to its underwhelming acceptance or knowledge from the public, people generally hold weird speculations and unnecessary fears.

Should Christians Undergo Hypnosis?

If you have been in the church circles for some time now, you probably have come across some conflicting claims. Some conservative preachers have helped fan the flames of the fears and superstition surrounding hypnosis. They preach against Hypnosis as unchristian and an evil practice. Which simply heightens the misunderstanding concerning hypnosis. However, most of these suspicions are a result of ignorance. Many associate the techniques of hypnosis to those of divination, where an individual goes into a trance.

Although this phenomenon is common in spiritually charged church gatherings such as revivals and prayers meetings, we prefer to call it - anointing or walking in the spirit. It is not uncommon for people in this state to start seeing visions and feeling symptoms of illness and pain disappear. You hear the preacher suggest that you close your eyes, place your hand on the affected part and command the illness to go. Lo and behold, people are healed. - The power of suggestion is at work.

This is not to claim that divine healing doesn't necessarily take place. It does. But it is not always a result of divine power that people in church get healed. Some of them are hypnotized. Otherwise we would not have all those people claiming healing and the following day they are again afflicted with the same illness. It is not a lack of faith, but an inability to maintain that positive state of mind. Hypnosis does come in handy here, as you can learn the skills of self hypnosis.

Hopefully in time, many Christians will come around to educate themselves just like they have done on mediation and yoga. Perhaps, hypnotists who use the science for unethical practices have made it worse.

Can Hypnosis Help You Lose Weight?

The experts answer with an emphatic YES!

There is a close link between body weight and the mind. Many addictions and food disorders are a result of mental health. Stress has been linked to overeating and excessive drinking, both of which lead to gaining weight. Low self esteem and a negative self perception both contribute to your bad eating habits; how you feel about yourself and your energy levels. The reason why you can't exercise is sometimes due to less energy and not necessarily a lack of commitment. Bad food is the worst culprit for low energy and a dull mind.

Since Weight disorders are mostly psychological, hypnotherapy, is viewed by experts as a very useful science for treatment. Thus most treatments attempt to address behavior change.

Hypnosis can be used to alter your mental state and allow your body to charge itself, giving you the much needed energy to exercise and control your eating. As such, hypnosis uses the power of suggestion. The hypnotist guides the client through certain concentration techniques and the client makes his or her own decisions about their condition. There are a number of people that find it to be an effective method of dealing with their chronic addictions.

People, who suffer from compulsive disorders such as overeating, over-exercising, etc, can greatly benefit from hypnotherapy. If you have tried other methods with less or no success, it would not be a bad idea to try out hypnotherapy.

This may just be your gateway to finally shade off those unwanted pounds, and take control of your life.

      Thanks and yes they say Halloween has a weird origin. Which could be true but today it has taken on a totall different meaning and tradition. Usually ignorance is what leads to so many irrational fears.

      Interesting. I didn't realize that in some Christian circles it was considered evil. How ignorant of them. Than again, they think Halloween is evil.

      I have heard of hypnosis for weight loss, smoking cessation, and other maladies. I hope this helps someone on their journey to a healthy life. Voted up +.
