Top Myths About Hypnosis for Weight Loss

Thanks for your interest in learning about the power, safety and effectiveness of hypnosis to lose weight. You should be congratulated on taking all the right steps to learn and discover as much as you can about hypnotherapy before making the decision to use this highly effective technique to help you lose weight and keep it off for good.

Let's first examine some common myths about hypnosis.

Myth #1: The hypnotist has total control over you and make you do anything, even something against your will.

This myth has been going around for a very long time and this belief has stood in the way of people who could have reached their goal weight years ago. Many potential success stories have never been told because of the power of this one myth.

Truth be told, when you're under hypnosis you are still under your own control. You can turn it on or off. You are the boss. You make the ultimate decision to tell your brain to stop overeating. When your brain takes instruction from you during hypnosis, something amazing happens. Like a soldier taking orders from a drill sergeant, your brain listens, and complies.

Myth #2: Hypnosis can be dangerous.

Just the opposite is true. Hypnosis is in fact an extremely safe and a natural way to take control of your efforts to lose weight. Need proof? The American Medical Association approved the use of hypnosis in the 1950's. As a result, doctors all over the world have been referring their patients to hypnotists for over 4 decades. 

Myth #3: You can get stuck in hypnosis and never come out.

This is a fairy tale. If you're ever in hypnosis and your hypnotist were to pass out, have a heart attack or some other emergency, one of two things would happen. You would either realize the hypnotist was gone and you'd open your eyes feeling perfectly fine - or you would drift into a normal sleep for a few minutes and then wake up feeling just fine. That's it. No drama, no fictional zombie stories. In the real world, it's as simple -- and as safe -- as this.

Myth #4: Many people can't be hypnotized.

Almost anyone can be hypnotized, in fact, 95% of people can reach this state -- but they must want to. No one can be hypnotized against their will.

The only exceptions are very small children, people with very low IQ's, and people with severe mental disabilities or neurological problems.

Myth #5: Hypnosis is sleep.

Hypnosis is, in all actuality, the state of consciousness between being awake and being asleep. We actually go into trances all the time. Ever drive home and not remember the streets you were on? This is simply your conscious mind daydreaming while your unconscious mind was keeping you safe on the road.

Myth #6: Only weak-minded people can be hypnotized.

This is another Hollywood sensationalism dating back to the silent film era. The Evil Genius hypnotizes the Loyal Half-wit and directs him to carry out frightful atrocities. First, it is difficult to hypnotize a half-wit. Second, once the hypnosis session is over, it is over. There are no lasting trances or delayed triggers.

Actually, the smarter you are and the more strong-willed you are – the easier it is to be hypnotized! Go figure…

Myth 7: Deep hypnosis is necessary for good results.

Another fictional tale perpetuated on screens big and small. Good results can be achieved at any level of hypnosis - from light trance to deep trance.

As you can clearly see, the myths surrounding hypnosis are categorically false. Now is the time to finally end the struggle to manage your weight so you can wear those skinny jeans again, feel great about going to the beach, improve your love life, and feel younger, healthier and happier!Yes, you really can get thin and stay thin!
