Hypnosis for Addictions

Additional programs for Weight Management, Personal Health, and Success include:

  • Beating a Sugar Addiction

  • Drink Less Alcohol Program

Hypnosis can help in eliminating addictions through several mechanisms:

  1. Behavior Modification: Hypnosis can help individuals modify their behavior by accessing the subconscious mind. It can address the underlying psychological factors contributing to addiction, such as stress, trauma, or negative thought patterns. By reprogramming these patterns at the subconscious level, hypnosis can help individuals develop healthier coping mechanisms and responses to triggers for addictive behaviors.

  2. Craving Reduction: Hypnosis has been shown to reduce cravings for addictive substances or behaviors. Through techniques like visualization, suggestion, and relaxation, hypnosis can help individuals diminish the intensity of cravings and gain better control over their impulses. This can be particularly beneficial during the early stages of addiction recovery when cravings are often strongest.

  3. Addressing Underlying Issues: Addiction is often accompanied by underlying emotional or psychological issues such as anxiety, depression, or low self-esteem. Hypnosis can help individuals explore and address these underlying issues, providing them with a deeper understanding of the root causes of their addiction. By resolving these underlying issues, individuals are less likely to turn to addictive behaviors as a means of coping.

  4. Enhancing Motivation and Confidence: Hypnosis can boost motivation and self-confidence, empowering individuals to commit to their recovery journey. By instilling a sense of belief in their ability to overcome addiction and achieve their goals, hypnosis can provide individuals with the mental strength and resilience needed to resist temptation and stay on track with their recovery efforts.

  5. Stress Reduction: Stress is a common trigger for addictive behaviors. Hypnosis techniques such as relaxation and stress reduction can help individuals manage stress more effectively, reducing the likelihood of turning to addictive substances or behaviors as a coping mechanism.

  6. Creating Positive Associations: Hypnosis can help individuals create positive associations with sobriety or abstaining from addictive behaviors. Through imagery, suggestion, and reinforcement, hypnosis can help individuals visualize a life free from addiction and cultivate a strong desire to maintain sobriety.

 

Overall, while hypnosis may not be a standalone treatment for addiction, hypnosis can be a valuable adjunct therapy when used in conjunction with other evidence-based treatments such as counseling, support groups, and medication. Hypnosis offers a holistic approach to addiction recovery by addressing the psychological, emotional, and behavioral aspects of addiction.

Brain Teaching for Beating Sugar Addiction

Are you experiencing any of these symptoms of sugar addiction?

  • Consuming certain foods even if you are not hungry because of cravings.

  • Worrying about cutting down on certain foods.

  • Feeling sluggish or fatigued from overeating or eating certain foods.

  • Having health or social problems because of food issues and yet keep eating the way you do despite negative consequences.

  • You need more and more of the foods you crave to experience any pleasure or reduce negative emotions.

  • You "have to have" certain carbohydrates, sugars, or sweets to feel satisfied.

SUGAR is something we consume every day -- in our beverages, in our sauces and salad dressings, and in that chocolate bar treat.

Together, obesity and Type 2 diabetes rank among our nation’s

greatest health problem,s and these problems largely result from what many call an “addiction” to sugar.

 

Solving this problem is deemed to be more complicated than

solving drug addiction, because reducing sugar requires reducing the drive to eat unhealthy foods while maintaining the desire to eat healthy foods when hungry. We know though that with a little subconscious intervention we can change how somebody thinks about sugar!

Understanding the affect of sugar on our brains and bodies is

important to know -- and to resolve.

This three-session brain training program for sugar addiction is designed to help you:

  • Bring their food choices to conscious awareness.

  • Help them to apply some sensible strategies to control what they eat in a sustainable way.

  • Help them to find it easier to resist the appeal of those sweet

  • things.

  • Help them to feel better as their metabolism begins to work as it should.

You also receive a supporting recording to listen to in-between sessions to help you stay on track.

Many people reach for an alcoholic drink out of habit or as a way to relax at the end of a long day, BUT if any of the following are answered with a "yes", it may be that alcohol is becoming a problem:

  • Drinking getting out of control?

  • Drinking too much alcohol?

  • Spending too much on alcohol?

  • Boredom drinking?

  • Stressed and drinking?

  • Weight gain from over drinking?

  • Thinking that only a few drinks per week is unrealistic?
