Novel and Effective Weight Reduction Technique Does Not Require Pills, Patches, Supplements or Surgery and Can Easily Prevent Holiday Weight Gain.
Minneapolis, Minnesota (PRWEB) December 5, 2005 -- Holiday weight gain is a problem for millions of Americans. Researchers at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) found that a large percentage of Americans who gain weight during the winter holiday season do not lose the extra weight. In fact, the weight accumulates over the years. NICHD Director Duane Alexander, M.D. who noticed this troublesome trend states: "These findings suggest that developing ways to avoid holiday weight gain may be extremely important for preventing obesity and the diseases associated with it."
What safe weight loss method did doctors Crasilneck and Hall confirm as effective? They found that: "Hypnotherapy can often help in treating obesity, an observation that is one of the most clinically confirmed in all the literature on hypnosis."(1)This statement is made more credible because these doctors did two important things: First, they conducted their own studies and second, they conducted a comprehensive meta-analysis of a large number of other reliable hypnosis weight loss studies.
Is there other believable evidence that hypnosis can help people with diabetes and weight loss problems? Yes. In the July 2001 issue of Scientific American it states: "A 1996 National Institutes of Health technology assessment panel judged hypnosis to be an effective intervention for alleviating pain from cancer and other chronic conditions. Voluminous clinical studies also indicate that hypnosis can reduce the acute pain experienced by patients undergoing burn-wound debridement, children enduring bone marrow aspirations and women in labor. A meta-analysis published in a recent special issue of the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis, for example, found that hypnotic suggestions relieved the pain of 75 percent of 933 subjects participating in 27 different experiments. The pain-relieving effect of hypnosis is often substantial, and in a few cases the degree of relief matches or exceeds that provided by morphine." (2)If severe pain can be controlled by hypnosis then one can imagine weight loss cravings also being controlled by hypnosis.
Also, given the dubious safety and effectiveness of diet pills and the hazards of invasive and surgery, one must wonder why, if hypnosis is so obviously effective for pain management, why isn't it used before drastic and very expensive steps for weight loss are taken? And, since hypnosis has been proven to have the ability to match or exceed the power of morphine then one must wonder how much better hypnosis is than diet pills and diet patches.
Who has used hypnosis to change their lives for the better? A number of people. Internet research has revealed the following well-known people have benefited from the use of hypnosis: --Sondra Ray, author of The Only Diet There Is and several other best sellers. --Tom Mankiewicz, the super talent who wrote "Superman the Movie"--Beau Upchurch, a power-house pitcher for the Dodgers baseball team.
Hypnosis has been proven to help anyone use the power of their mind in a positive, life changing manner. This fact is clinically confirmed and, interestingly some of society's most successful have used hypnosis.As a self-improvement method, hypnosis is worth serious investigation---especially during the holiday season which is a time of great stress, weight gain, short tempers and holiiday blues.
