4 Ways Hypnosis Can Help You Reduce Weight


Do you want to reduce those extra pounds and keep them off?  Hypnosis can help.

Tracy Stein, PhD, MPH, a health psychologist ASCH-certified in clinical hypnosis and the former Director of Integrative Medicine in the Department of Surgery at Columbia University says.

“Hypnosis can specifically help people resolve the underlying problems causing them to hate exercise, experience intense cravings, binge at night, or eat mindlessly. It helps them identify the triggers and disarm them.”

  • Hypnosis helps you stay positive and healthy. Some of the most popular positive hypnotic suggestion were devised by doctors Herbert and David Spiegel, a father- son hypnotherapy team: “For my body, too much food is damaging. I need my body to live. I owe my body respect and protection.”
  • Hypnosis helps you resolve your eating challenges. Hypnosis can be used to harness the power of symbolic imagery, inviting you to put food cravings out of reach and make them unimportant.  Hypnosis also guides you to making better food choices and create a healthier relationship with food.
  • Hypnosis helps you keep focused on your goals. And the way to do that is to think short term. It may seem counter-intuitive, but don’t get bogged down by the fact that you have 10, 20, 50 or even 100 pounds to lose. It’s a lot easier to figure out where you want to be next week. Setting short-term milestones and building on them helps keep you focused on your progress, not how far you still have to go.
  • Hypnosis helps you stay motivated, even with setbacks. Part of the long struggle with weight management is related to one’s relationship with food and the foods one chooses to surround themselves with. When reducing your weight is your top priority, you will eat only when you are hungry, stop when you are satisfied, and be aware of both! Of course, you surround yourself with only healthy nutritious food and avoid unhealthy foods and snacks.
