What’s Different About Hypnotic Weight Release?

Diets work from the inside out. They tell you what to do, “Eat this, don’t eat that,” but they don’t help you understand why you got into an unhealthy relationship with food in the first place. They treat the symptom, excess weight, instead of addressing the problem. The weight release program at Mind Matters, on the other hand, helps you understand why you’re carrying the excess weight to begin with – addressing the core of the issue instead of just the symptom.

Traditional diets don’t address the emotional side of eating. From the beginning of your life, you’re taught to use food to stuff, create or celebrate your emotions. Diets don’t teach you how to undo or address that learning. Hypnosis does. Hypnosis helps you understand what emotion you’re eating to suppress or create, helps your mind come up with healthier ways of dealing with that emotion and finally, separates food from emotions.

Hypnosis enables you to tap into your body’s built-in signals for hunger, thirst, exercise and sleep, as well as creating a whole new relationship with food and your body. One that is partnering rather than adversarial. One where your body literally shares with you what it needs for nutrition and weight release throughout the day. No schedules to follow, no weights, no measurements and best of all, much less effort than with traditional diets.

Supporting Research
Hypnosis is over 30 times as effective for weight loss.

Hypnosis was more effective than a control group: an average of 17 lbs lost by the hypnosis group vs. an average of 0.5 lbs lost by the control group, on follow-up. Two Years Later: Hypnosis Subjects Continued To Lose Significant Weight. At 8-month and 2-year follow-ups, the hypnosis subjects were found to have continued to lose significant weight, while those in the behavioral-treatment-only group showed little further change.*

Hypnosis Subjects Lost More Weight Than 90% of Others and Kept it Off.

Researchers analyzed 18 studies comparing a cognitive behavioral therapy such as relaxation training, guided imagery, self-monitoring, or goal setting with the same therapy supplemented by hypnosis. Those who received the hypnosis lost more weight than 90 percent of those not receiving hypnosis and maintained the weight loss two years after treatment ended.*
