A Solution to the Obesity Crisis (How to Obtain Significant Weight Loss)
Over weight! Too heavy! Looking to experience some weight loss? The western world has a crisis of epidemic proportions… Obesity! The nation's scales are going up...up...up...and it's clear that we have a health crisis on our hands. The obesity crisis has contributed to many health problems in both children and adults, including diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease. Those who care about themselves are now looking for ways to lose weight.
What can we do? It's not just a case of telling people to eat fewer doughnuts, eat fewer sweets, and then walk around the block each day to experience weight loss. To change a person’s eating and exercise habits, we must create a fundamental change in the mind at a subconscious level. When we consciously make a choice to do something, our “critical mind”, an inherent psychological defensive mechanism, blocks the suggestion from entering the subconscious where true, long-lasting change can take place. Since the subconscious controls 100% of all physical abilities and 99% of all mental and emotional capabilities, the answer to combating obesity and attaining significant weight loss lies in the subconscious mind.
As a Certified Hypnotist in San Antonio, Texas, I have found an answer to the obesity crisis. A student of the human mind, I don’t rely strictly on hypnosis alone. In my weight loss program, I have incorporated subliminal technology along with sleep affirmations into my weight loss hypnosis program to help my clients experience significant weight loss. After years of study, I developed a Weight Loss program; which combines the best features of self-hypnosis, subliminal technology and affirmations. This threefold approach to weight loss has proven very successful.
Self-hypnosis is a very effective way to change your eating and exercise behaviors alone. As you listen to the self-hypnosis program, you become relaxed. In this state, the critical mind goes “on vacation” thereby allowing the subconscious to receive the suggestion directly for maximum benefit and resultant weight loss. Some psychologists state that suggestions received by the subconscious mind in this manner are 700 times more effective than suggestions provided directly to the conscious mind.
Subliminal programs work differently. Subliminal technology offers a system whereby the conscious mind is distracted thereby enabling the weight loss and exercise suggestions to go directly into the subconscious. The subliminal suggestions are pitched just below the conscious perception level but at a level where the subconscious can hear them clearly. According to Dr. Steven M. Freitag, Ph.D.; “Before, just repeating a single phrase over and over again through subliminal suggestions worked well enough. Now, subliminal suggestions need to contain positive as well as negative suggestions which allow a person to think of the benefits for his or herself in addition to remembering the negative effects the behavior is having on his or her life. This allows a person the will to make the change” allowing “a person to focus and develop positive behavior instead of reverting back to his or her negative behavior.”
In addition, sleep affirmations take advantage of the fact that the last thought a person has on his/her conscious mind just before they drift off to sleep is processed by the subconscious throughout the sleep cycle. Suggestions to enhance weight loss will capture the client’s subconscious attention all night long.
By combining three modalities into a comprehensive, yet inexpensive weight loss program, I have helped my clients experience long-lasting weight loss.
