Excess Weight Gain and Eating Disorders
Causes for excess weight gain and eating disorders are varied and influenced by a number of factors that all need to be addressed for successful change. Most people begin their efforts to reduce their weight by dieting and depriving themselves of food. This starts a life-long battle of weight loss and weight gain. The body often responds very efficiently and the metabolic rate is lowered. When normal eating resumes, the body often favors excess fat storage.
In addition, unhealthy perceptions and unresolved hurtful emotions can lead to excessive stress, anxiety, self-criticism, frustration and depression. To avoid discomfort, a person may find themselves eating, whether hungry or not. Dieting and food deprivation, increased desire to overeat or snack and a feeling of loss of control, can all contribute to an increasing problem with weight. This can lead to a fear of fatness and for some people to develop bulimia or anorexia.
Hypnosis is a safe process that helps a person take back control of themselves. It is a natural, noninvasive method for creating inner health. This frees a person to take back healthy control of their eating patterns, their weight, and live a healthy balanced and enjoyable lifestyle.
Please note: Physical disorders often have a major influence on the metabolic and other organ systems that effect body weight. In such cases, it is important to first address the root cause of the disorder as well as emotional health, eating patterns and exercise.
Your Weight Management Sessions......
For weight management, I offer an average of 5 to 7 sessions. This includes finding resolution for emotional eating as well as establishing healthy eating patterns and routine exercise. Generally, we will do 3 to 4 hypnosis healing sessions to resolve and release perceptions and emotions causing you to have weight difficulties. For complex and more involved issues, the number of sessions may extend beyond 4 sessions. This we can determine as we progress in your healing needs. Then as needed, we will do another 2 to 3 sessions for healthier eating patterns, portions sizes and exercise needs. Sessions are best 3 to 7 days apart until we get to the behavior modification sessions that can be several weeks apart.

Steps to Achieve
Successful Results with Hypnosis
Your body has a natural ability to guide you toward healthy eating. Your body knows more about its needs for proper health and nutrition, than anybody else possibly could. Hypnosis will help you rebuild such trust in your body’s natural and normal guidelines. As a result, listening and responding to your body’s natural indicators and internal cues for healthy eating patterns, allows you to successfully take back healthy control of your weight.
Focus on the Present
When you are fully in the moment, you are experiencing everything with a fresh eye and an open mind. Together we will work to help you grow free from past burdens and live powerfully in the present, creating your healthy new future.
Expecting differs from hoping, wishing or trying. Being indefinite in your intentions only causes you to place yourself outside your goal and decrease success. Together we will work to help you be your goal, by imagining yourself already being your healthy and ideal weight. By establishing and reinforcing such expectations, your goal to become your healthy and ideal weight becomes your reality.
To be successful, you must actively and consistently do what is necessary to meet your specific goals and reach your desired weight. Together we will work to help you move forth with desire, focus and determination to change old unhealthy patterns and create new healthy patterns.
Hypnosis allows you to honestly and completely let go of all those old internal tapes and sabotaging opinions you feel others have formed about you, and you have formed about yourself. It helps you to eliminate those negative perceptions that keep repeating within you and are holding you back from reaching your goals. Hypnosis then gives you the opportunity to accept new truths, new healthy perceptions, thoughts and images of yourself at your desired healthy body weight and size, and living your healthy lifestyle.
Identify and Acknowledge your Fears and Doubts
Together we will work to help you bring your fears, worries, doubts and struggles with eating and weight to the surface, where you can identify and acknowledge them. We will work to help you release any negative internal talk, self-criticism and self-discrimination that sabotage your success. You will then have room for new healthy emotions, feelings, thoughts and attitudes.
Awareness and Respect for your Body
Together we will work to help you become aware of your body’s inner cues, and distinguish between natural hunger cues and emotional hunger. In turn, you can respond more accurately to your true physical needs, and build healthy eating patterns. We will work to help you to fully enjoy your eating experience by learning to eliminate distractions, slowing down, as well as establish better control of the amount of food you eat.
Healthy Habits and Attitudes for a Healthy Lifestyle
As you form a close and respectful friendship with your body and actively meet its needs, you will find yourself naturally forming new desires for nutritious foods and building new healthy eating habits. In turn, you will find yourself building self-confidence, self-esteem and acceptance of a slimmer more appealing new you.
Daily Body Imaging
An important part of the process of having control of your body weight and size is to mentally create the new slender and fit you, as you will be in the future. Whether we draw from healthy past memories or future anticipations, you will be able bring those desires, benefits and rewards into the present. Such a desirable image of yourself becoming slender, firmer, healthier and happier has a powerful and effective influence on you to overcome unhealthy eating and return to a healthy weight.
Deep Breathing for Stress Reduction and Relaxation
Deep rhythmic breathing is central to creating a chain response for relaxing your body functions. I will help you to use deep breathing to release emotional stress, and loosen muscle and nerve tightness. This in turn will create an automatic chain response to help slow down your heartbeat, stabilize your metabolism, increase blood flow to your hands and feet, and balance your hormonal activity.
On a Final Note
Exercise for Physical Health and Fitness
Our body still holds a genetic memory for self-preservation. Inactivity signals ill health and a need to store fat for emergency. Routine exercise signals your body that you are well and healthy. You will then find that the fat you let go of with a routine activity is fat you let go of completely. I encourage you to begin a consistent 30 minutes a day, exercise and fitness routine that is geared to your needs and desires. During the first 20 minutes of activity, your body works off sugars. After 20 minutes, your body begins to work off unhealthy visceral fat. You will find yourself enjoying an increase level of energy and an increase level of your metabolism rate. You will also decrease your cortisol levels, which are stress hormones that promote unhealthy fat storage.
Create a Daily Eating Program and Stick to it
A desire to eat continually and at different hours of the day is a developed habit. This conditioned habit was created and established over time, and can be broken. I will help you to establish a new and healthier pattern of eating. If it is followed consistently and without cheating, in 2 to 3 weeks, you will reprogram and recondition your mind with new hunger and eating patterns. I suggest a pattern that consists of eating 3 planned meals and 1or 2 planned snacks a day, at approximately the same time each day. It is important to stick to your program whether you are hungry or not. This sends your body the important message, that it will not be deprived or starve. You will naturally boost up and stabilize your metabolism, and restore your normal biological rhythms.
Breakfast is the Single Most Important Meal of the Day
A healthy satisfying breakfast will start up your metabolism. This will also help you break the habit of eating between meals. Eat your biggest meal in the middle of the day. This gives you the rest of the day to burn off food energy. And finally, eat your smallest meal at the end of the day. I suggest you stop consuming calories a minimum of 4 hours before sleep. This gives your body time to burn off all calories taken in from the day.
Be kind and gentle to yourself.
Give yourself plenty of time and patience to meet your desires and goals on your terms and timetable.
Your body is self-healing when it is properly, nutritionally and naturally maintained.
For the Health of It!
So how do we know what to eat and for what purpose? Well, it seems that our natural world has given us great clues as to what food helps what part of our body. Nature's living pharmacy- amazing!
A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye. Studies shows carrots enhance blood flow and function of the eyes.
A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. Research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopene and are indeed food for the heart and blood.
Grapes look like blood cells and hang in a cluster in the shape of the heart. Research shows grapes are blood and heart vitalizing food.
A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. Research shows walnuts help develop more than three dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.
Kidney Beans help heal and maintain kidney function. And yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.
Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb look just like bones and target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus weakening your skeletal structure.
Avocados, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female - they look just like these organs. Today's research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it helps balance hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how interesting is this; it takes exactly nine months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).
Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase male sperm count and the mobility of male sperm.
Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and help balance the glycemic index of diabetics.
Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries.
Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.
Onions look like the body's cells. Today's research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes.
Garlic, a working companion, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.
