Does Hypnotherapy Work For Weight Loss? [EXPERT]
Over 30% of American adults are currently considered obese.
If you struggle with weight challenges, hypnotherapy might be an effective solution for you.

According to the National Center of Health Statistics, over 30 percent of U.S adults are currently obese. In order for an individual to be considered obese, one must be roughly 30 or more pounds over a healthy weight. A government study conducted by Oxford University estimates that by the year 2032 over half of the population will be obese. The study found that in less than 15 years, 86 percent of men will be overweight and in 20 years, 70 percent of women will be overweight.

The Department of Health and health care professionals are warning that people need to use active coping strategies, day-in and day-out, to prevent weight gain, but unfortunately, most do not succeed. People struggle with weight loss because they are using strategies that do not promote or create long-term, healthy behavior and mental changes. In order to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle, we must change the way we act and change the way we think. Hypnotherapy is a tool people can use to create this positive change.

Hypnotherapy is a proactive, beneficial tool that can help people lose weight and accomplish their goals. By using verbal suggestions during a hypnotic state of heightened awareness, hypnotherapists are able to reinforce positive thinking, address conflicts and encourage mental rewiring. Mental rewiring is creating or changing neurological pathways in our brains to help change the way we respond to or view a situation.

A typical hypnotherapy session begins with the client becoming relaxed and comfortable. The hypnotherapist then further guides the client into a hypnotic state of deep relaxation through a series of suggestions and guided imagery. From there, the hypnotherapist provides the client with specific suggestions. These suggestions, if accepted by the client, will help to create positive rewiring. Therapy Is Not Working! Now What?
