Weight loss/management is big business in the U.S.
There are literally thousands of products and services out there that promise to help you take your pounds off and keep them off. Many are classified as unhealthy and even potentially harmful; others are recommended by doctors and specialists. The problem with most existing methods is that they do not address the issues behind the overeating and other bad eating habits that caused the extra weight. They usually work only on the conscious mind level, often ignoring subconscious causes. Therefore, even when people are able to lose weight, they often fall back into old habits and gain it all over again. It would be worth to keep Dr. Janet Greeson's wise words (and book title) in mind: “It’s not what you’re eating, it’s what’s eating you.”
The advantage of Hypnotherapy is that it can tap into the subconscious and reprogram unwanted behavior via suggestions. In addition to performing hypnosis sessions to help make your process of losing and managing weight a lot easier, a hypnotherapist can also help the client determine the causes behind the issue and create a customized program to facilitate breaking old patterns and unhealthy habits. Hypnotherapy also works very well as a complement to other weight loss and management programs.
In short, hypnotherapy is a safe, natural and non-invasive way to guide you through a healthy lifestyle shift that will help you master your body while still being able to enjoy what you eat. No diets that leave you hungry, no pills that might make you sick, no constant feeling of deprivation... For these reasons, more and more people are seeking hypnotherapy as a safe therapeutic option.
