Hypnotherapy and Autoimmune Disease

HypnotherapyDid you know that Autoimmune Disorders occur almost exclusively in developed countries?  That’s right, people in underdeveloped countries, without clean running water, flushing toilets, cars, large supermarkets don’t really experience these diseases.

Major differences in life styles is the reason why.  In developed countries we sit more and walk less, work more and socialize less, work from a desk using mostly our minds instead of outside using mostly our bodies, and because of ease of getting medications, pay little attention to the mind/body connection.

Our thoughts and emotions have a large impact on how we feel. As an example, did you ever go into a movie with a pain in your arm and get so engrossed in the movie that you forgot your arm hurt? Or, did you ever think so much about your arm pain that the pain began to feel excruciating?  That is a prime example of how our thoughts control how our body feels.

Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation which helps the mind focus, and in that state of focused attention, you can easily learn suggestions and tools to help your body feel more comfortable and less pain.

Our thoughts have a major impact on how our body feels, in fact, they can regulate how our bodies feel.  And since we are in control of our thoughts, why not use them to our benefit? With hypnotherapy we can modify our thought patterns to help our bodies.

Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis helps thousands lose Weight

fat to thinHypnotherapy has long been in the news because of its benefits for weight loss.  I have found it to be extremely useful in helping my patients lose the weight they want to lose and in keeping it off.  It is not magic and one still needs to do the work.  Hypnosis makes it easier to do the work.  Why?  Because it works with unconscious motivations, patterns and habits.  I believe we all possess the tools to help us lose weight but we don’t tap into those tools because we eat for reasons other than true, physical hunger.

Hypnosis will make it easier to distinguish between real, stomach hunger and emotional hunger.  It helps people feel like they want to make healthy choices rather than thinking they “should” make those choices.  You will still have to use willpower, but it will be easier to use it.  With the gastric band hypnotherapy program, it will be easier to realize when you have eaten enough to sustain health so that you can stop before you overeat.

The weight loss with this program is usually steady and sustainable.  This means there is no “diet” to go on and no diet to go off, making it easier to keep the weight off.  You will learn how to change your relationship with food and deal with feelings of anxiety, sadness, frustration, etc. without turning to food.

I am so excited to offer this program to those who have been struggling with their weight.  For more information please see http://www.lindawaltercounseling.com/common-issues/virtual-gastric-band-weight-loss-therapy/
