Can You Use Hypnosis for Weight Loss and Body Sculpting?

Submitted by on Tuesday, 5 January 2010One Comment

Using Self-hypnosis for physical change can sound crazy to many people; after all, how can listening to a voice, physically affect your body (such as weight loss or body sculpting)?

The mind, body & spirit connection is often ignored when it comes to finding a solution to any kind of problem; even scientists are aware of various levels of mind-body connection, such as the placebo effect; a phenomenon where a patient’s condition improves from an ineffective treatment (a fake pill); only due to the patients perception that the treatment works (Note: physical change occurs ONLY due to perception).

The placebo effect takes place unconsciously, without the patient consciously controlling their thoughts and perceptions – if these patients can consciously control their perceptions at a higher level, could we can extend natural healing a step further? This is where hypnosis can play a part – if done correctly.

Hypnosis can allow you to change your thoughts; then direct them towards a certain goal, such as weight loss. This can further be enhanced by regular basic meditation – FACT: Regular meditation can permanently change your brain waves causing increased focus even when not in a meditative state.

There are many ways hypnosis can help you lose weight:

- Lowering appetite for certain foods

- Lowering overall appetite

- Increasing hunger for healthy foods (vegetables that you might not like)

- Increasing metabolism (just by directing thoughts, as experienced in the placebo effect)

- Enjoying Exercise

- Relaxing (therefore decreasing stress hormones that prevent you to lose the last few pounds of weight)

The hypnosis programs I personally recommend (because I use them myself) are from Hyptalk and DeepTrance – Both are fantastic value for money – for the first one, you can listen to sample recordings before buying; for DeepTrance you can get free full recordings after you subscribe to their newsletter (Zero spam).

As with all goals, always remember to combine mind body and spirit – this is the fastest way to achieving your goals. So in this case, hypnosis and meditation is mind and spirit; add some body to it, exercise regularly; focus on eating healthy instead of counting calories – and most important of all, have fun! Enjoying the journey is just as vital as reaching your goals.
