Hypnosis has been used in one form or another for thousands of years. There may even be mention of hypnosis in the Bible (Genesis 2:21, 1 Samuel 26:12, Job 4:13, 33:15, Acts 10:10), but the history of modern hypnosis begins in 18th century with the arrival of Franz Anton Mesmer (1734-1815). It is after him that the term "mesmerism" was coined.
Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) was also initially interested in hypnosis, but he abandoned it because he was unsuccessful with it.
What qualified acceptance of hypnosis in medicine that we have today is largely due to the efforts of pioneers in the experimental study of hypnosis, starting in the 1920's and 30's.
In the 1950s both the British and the American Medical Associations acknowledged the value of hypnosis as a tool for healing. Despite this, only a minority of doctors practise hypnotherapy. The 21st century thirst for short-term, cost-effective methods makes hypnotherapy an attractive alternative.
Weight loss hypnosis can help you eat and think healthier, overcome your food cravings, increase your self-confidence and make mental and behavioral changes for a lifetime! Hypnosis will not insult your intelligence by telling you to make sure you get so many servings of green leafy vegetables. You know this. Instead, it will reach into your psyche to help you make good food choices.
When you're under hypnosis, your attention is highly focused and you're more responsive to suggestions, including behavior changes that can help you lose weight with hyponisis. Best of all, weight loss hypnosis is generally safe and relatively inexpensive.
In a hypnotic state, a subject's subconscious mind will become active while the conscious mind becomes less active. A hypnotist works directly with the subconscious mind. Since the subconscious mind has all information stored, a hypnotist can delve into the past of subject and subsequently alter that information. This is why hypnosis therapy is used to break many bad habits, such as over-eating and/or otherwise uncontrollable cravings, which in turn help you to lose weight.
Habits are a conditioned response in the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind does not know the difference between a "good" habit or a "bad" habit. The subconscious mind does not know the difference between reality or imagination.
How Weight Loss Hypnosis Works
In short, during the weight loss hypnosis process, the subject becomes relaxed and goes in to subconscious state. In the subconscious state the conscious mind becomes less active and hypnotist takes control. This is how hypnosis works. The simple process of hypnosis is the natural, safe and expedient way for behavior modification.
If you have major problems with willpower, weight loss hypnosis may be well worth the minimal effort required on your part.
The most important factor regarding the use of weightloss hypnosis is a combination of three things: Belief, desire and expectancy. Believe it will work, have a genuine desire for it to work, and expect that it will work - and it will.
