Should I Use Hypnotherapy to Help Me Lose Weight?

Transformation that can occur with hypnotherapy

"Just believe in yourself. Even if you don't, pretend that you do, and, at some point, you will." – Venus Williams.

If you are asking yourself whether or not you should use hypnotherapy to help lose weight, then my guess is you probably should.

A person who is asking this is most likely someone who has tried everything – fad diets, weight loss, pills, etc. You are very likely to be a person who realizes you have some habits that contribute to being overweight, and you are probably frustrated at watching yourself break your commitment to your own health.

How do I find out if my weight problem is medical or emotional?

However, there are many reasons that people are overweight, some of them medical. So, it's a good idea, especially if you are middle age or older, to check with your doctor. For example, women nearing menopause often have thyroid imbalances. If you are hypothyroid, gaining weight can happen very quickly and losing it can feel next to impossible. A man with a highly stressful job and poor sleep habits is likely to put on weight as a reaction to a cortisol imbalance - as well as binge eating in the middle of the night or turning to sugary foods to maintain energy.

Every case is unique.
