Eating disorders are caused by far more than the desire to be thin. Though anorexia and bulimia have different symptoms, they are both rooted in the subconscious. If you are struggling with anorexia or bulimia, you know that your desire to eat normally is strong, but the dissatisfaction you feel when you look in the mirror is stronger.
Hypnosis for Anorexia
When you use hypnosis to treat your anorexia, you are able to go far deeper into the cause of the problem than traditional treatments can. Hypnosis allows you to access your subconscious, where the eating disorder is rooted.
Your subconscious stores all memories, events, and situations from the past. Often, your subconscious can exaggerate or amplify the thoughts and feelings connected to a situation in your past. It is very possible that you do not consciously remember what event or situation is triggering your disorder, however, when you look in the mirror, your reflection is distorted by the culmination and amplification of those events from your past.
Hypnosis for Bulimia
Your subconscious drives you to stop eating or to purge what you do eat, just as your subconscious can make you overeat in the first place.
Hypnosis surpasses the average eating disorder treatment, and makes your recovery permanent. Once you have committed to overcoming bulimia or anorexia with hypnosis, you won’t have to fear slipping back into the disorder, you will be able to eat healthy, lose weight safely, and even diet if you want to.
Hypnosis achieves this through various techniques all designed to access the subconscious, identify the trigger that causes the eating disorder in the first place, and then re-train how your mind perceives that trigger. Through hypnosis, your subconscious is taught how put negative events, thoughts, and feelings in perspective, and how to utilize all of your positive aspects.
Hypnosis for Eating Disorders
There is a good chance that you became anorexic or bulimic because you felt like your life was seriously out of control and you had no idea how to change it. Maybe it was your marriage or your job, maybe finances or some other type of stress. Whatever the cause, hypnosis can allow you to take control of your life in a positive way.
Through hypnosis techniques like relaxation, regression, guided imagery, and positive suggestion, your hypnotist will access your subconscious to help you determine why you struggle with an eating disorder. They can then show your subconscious what it is like to be free of the disorder, and restructure your subconscious so that it doesn’t need the disorder in order to feel in control.
Hypnosis will reframe and retrain your subconscious to increase your self-esteem and self-confidence to improve your natural coping abilities. Hypnosis frees your mind from thinking it needs to purge or stop eating in order to feel control over your life. Hypnosis will help you discover your real self, one that is free from the negative influences from the past. Hypnosis teaches your subconscious to enjoy healthy eating and helps you find other more positive ways of coping with stress.
