You Are Getting Thinner!: Hypnosis for weight gain, sleep deprivation, & stress

Apr 04, 2011 06:53PM ● By Sue Sawyer

Today’s women not only fill the demanding roles of our predecessors, but face many new challenges and responsibilities that have come with the New Millennium. We are often the person "bringing home the bacon" (or tofu) and "frying it up in the pan". Many have, consciously or unconsciously, taken on too much. If you are one of those, you have probably noticed that along with the added responsibilities comes added stress, lessened quality of sleep and for many, unwanted weight gain. And interestingly, these three issues often affect us simultaneously.

Wise people know that quality sleep, where your body can completely renew itself, is one of the most important aspects of achieving good physical and emotional health. Without adequate sleep you are often stressed or anxiety-ridden in everyday situations. Lack of sleep and increased levels of stress will often cause people to gain unwanted weight.

"American Health Magazine" recently reported that Dr. Alfred A. Berrios, PhD. had researched the effectiveness of Hypnosis as compared with Psychoanalysis and Behavior Therapy modalities. Psychoanalysis reported a 38% rate of recovery/change after 600 sessions; Behavior Therapy recorded a 72% recovery/change after 22 sessions, while Hypnosis showed a 93% rate of recovery/change after only 6 sessions. Hypnosis is a safe, efficient and effective way to help yourself regain that control you feel you have lost, over certain areas of your life.

Hypnosis is defined as "a naturally occurring state of focused relaxation, whereby a person is guided through a series of pre-arranged beneficial suggestions that will change their future thoughts or behaviors." Working with the power of your own subconscious mind, you can accomplish changes in more than two hundred areas of your life. And because your subconscious mind is more susceptible to heightened suggestibility, hypnosis can help you to make these changes quickly, easily and seemingly effortlessly. When you finish a hypnosis session, you may feel like you’ve had a relaxation massage, a "power nap", and a mind clearing/energizing session all at the same time.
