Hypnosis is a natural deep state of relaxation. It taps into an ideal frame of mind (the unconscious) to integrate suggestions based on meeting your goals. Hypnosis works by updating the unconscious mind with new and more helpful information, like reprogramming a computer. It can be used to change associations, so that chocolate or chips, for instance, are no longer seen as “a reward”, and are more realistically regarded as “unnecessary calories”. What do you want to accomplish? Weight loss, stress relief, better performance, getting through blocks or heightening creativity? They are just a few of the things hypnosis can help with.
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. No one can control you. You will not be unconscious or asleep, you will simply go into a deep state of relaxation.
At the University of Connecticut, Hypnosis Subjects Lost More Weight Than 90% of Others and Kept it Off. Researchers analyzed 18 studies comparing a cognitive behavioral therapy such as relaxation training, guided imagery, self monitoring, or goal setting with the same therapy supplemented by hypnosis. Those who received the hypnosis lost more weight than 90 percent of those not receiving hypnosis and maintained the weight loss two years after treatment ended.

I believe there is a considerable need for awareness and re-alignment of our cultures relationship to food. Sugar and processed food are more readily available than ever before and are most peoples – go to – when in a rush. You can break those food habits and addictions with some guidance and support.
Losing weight also includes understanding your emotions and letting go of attachments or needs you might currently be unaware of. Stress, anger, frustration, sadness all impact the hormones and can have an impact on weight fluctuations.
The foods you eat matters, and understanding the impact of dietary changes vs. exercise is critical. Stop beating yourself up for not achieving your goals. More than likely you have not been taught some key information.
