Hypnosis Works for Weight Loss – Here's Why
People are always asking me if hypnosis works for things like weight loss or to quit smoking or to relieve stress along with a wide variety of circumstances and the answer is almost always "yes." The reason my answer is almost always yes is because all of your emotions and most of your behaviors are either controlled entirely or greatly influenced by your unconscious mind and the unconscious mind is where hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming works effectively to create the lasting positive changes people are wanting.
Let's take weight loss as an example. Eating is very much an unconscious behavior. People eat for a variety of reasons, the least of which normally is healthy nutrition. People eat when they're stressed, bored, depressed, celebrating, tired, anxious, being social and from time to time to nourish their body. All these reasons, except healthy eating, are controlled by the unconscious part of your mind.

Positive stress, also known as Eustress is the excitement felt by people when they are confronted by a demanding situation, which they think they can handle. People intentionally create Eustress through sports, gambling, business, watching scary movies and riding roller coasters. Eustress is created by the subconscious mind. Negative stress (distress) is also created by the subconscious mind and can sometimes be very appropriate and useful… for example… in an emergency situation.

In the ad, they promised they knew how you could relieve yourself of stress and anxiety through their exclusive method and offered a free CD to explain how the program works. Since, as a Certified Hypnotherapist and Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner, I regularly help people to live a stress free and anxiety free life, I wanted to find out more about their program and called the toll free number.
Robin Williams and Joan Rivers are two comedic icons yet live(ed) in two remarkably different worlds. Robin used humor, along with alcohol to cope with and mask depression while Joan used humor to laugh at everyone including herself. I can only wonder how funny Robin might have been if he had been able to remain sober and manage the depression that robbed him of his life and the world of his amazing talent and humanity.
Depression is not a laughing matter. Depression affects more than one's mood. It negatively affects a person's health, their longevity and their productivity. The causes and potential cures for depression are the subject of study and conjecture.
