Putting on Weight with Hypnotherapy





Being underweight can be a real challenge for those who struggle to gain weight but just can't seem to do so.

In modern society, with so many suffering from obesity and overweight, precious little attention is given to those who have the opposite problem. Yet being and feeling skinny, scrawny and underweight can have a really negative effect, not only on the individual's health, but on his or her confidence and self esteem.

Hard gainers very often believe that it's their metabolism that's too speedy and that they simply burn up everything they eat or that they just don't manage to digest and absorb everything.

But -- with the exception of certain underlying medical conditions -- this is just not the case.

The simple reason why a person has difficulty in gaining weight is because they are consuming too few calories in order to do so. Underweight people simply eat fewer calories; they eat less than they actually need in order to put on weight.

Often, those who constantly struggle with weight gain believe that they eat sufficient food. But this is just not so. After all, the belief that you eat a lot of food is not the same thing as actually eating sufficient food for you to gain weight.

The simple fact is that metabolism and genetics really have little to do with healthy weight gain. Yes, of course there are different body types and it's the ectomorph that's usually identified as the one most naturally skinny and thin. But there is no need for a person to be gifted genetically or to be really athletic in order to gain weight in a balanced and healthy way.

Of course, the ability to simply unwind and relax on a regular basis is crucial. The hard gainer really needs to slow things down and conserve energy.

What really matters when it comes to putting on weight are the psychological factors. This includes not only the psychological response and approach to food, eating and nutrition, but also the person's own individual perception of their body and potential.

If the image held by the subconscious mind is that the person is thin and underweight no matter what, then it is certainly capable of ensuring that this remains the case.

It is the image that our own subconscious holds of ourself and of our own body image that truly determines our weight.

With the help of modern hypnotherapy techniques and strategies it is possible to reach deep inside the subconscious and alter the self image from that of a thin, underweight person to that of someone of normal and healthy weight.

Once the internalized body image has been adjusted in a positive way, then the subconscious mind does its very best to ensure that that internalized image becomes a reality.

If putting on weight is something you struggle with, then don't despair.

With modern hypnotherapy techniques even the hardest gainer can gain weight, be healthy and feel really good about their body.

Eaten too much over the holiday season? Thinking about going back on a diet? Read on. You just might change your mind. You see, diets are fine - as far as they go. But the difficultly is that you just can't spend the rest of your life on a diet and, sooner or later, you have to come off them.

Hypnotherapy Help for Skin Problems Skin Conditions and Skin Health
Our skin is our largest organ. It is also the most visible. It is the boundary, the interface between our physical self and all that is beyond that self. Because of this, the skin is also one of the main areas - together with the digestive system - that an emotional call for help is registered. In fact, though skin problems and skin conditions may indeed have a physical origin, they also very often have a distinct psychological component too. Eczema, psoriasis, acne, pruritus or itching,...

Uncovering Your Own Confidence with Hypnotherapy
Being confident is our birthright. Whether or not we realize it or are aware of it, the simple truth is that every single person came into this world with an abundance of self-confidence. In fact, we were born to be confident. Inside each one of us there is an authentic self and this self is confident by nature. But when we try to be something that we don't truly feel we are then we are usually in for a difficult time. This is why the old 'fake it to make it' philosophy is so limited in...

Emetophobia The Fear of Vomiting and How to Conquer It
Emetophobia is the name we give to the fear of vomiting, the fear of being sick, or the fear of throwing up. Often clients call the hypnotherapist seeking help in overcoming a fear of vomiting, believing that they alone have this fear or phobia. Contrary to this popular misperception, emetophobia is not at all uncommon. In fact, it is the sixth most common phobia. Given this fact, it really is surprising how little this fear is discussed. Part of the reason for this, of course, is that...

Paruresis Shy Bladder Treatment with Hypnotherapy
Many people have experienced short episodes of hesitation or 'shy bladder' when about to urinate in a public toilet or urinal. Indeed, public toilets with their close proximity to others can sometimes have a temporary inhibiting affect on even the most confident person. Yet for the individual experiencing shy bladder syndrome - or avoidant paruresis to give it its medical name - the difficulty goes far beyond simple urinary hesitation. Indeed, in extreme cases, this condition can make it...

What Causes Claustrophobia and How to Cure It
Claustrophobia - or the fear of enclosed spaces - is one of the most common phobias that we see here in our hypnotherapy practice in the UK. Indeed, it is estimated that as much as 5% of the world population suffer from this truly debilitating and troublesome disorder. Sadly, only a very small percentage of claustrophobics receive treatment for their condition. This is usually because they are unaware that effective treatment actually exists. The good news is that regardless of what you may...

Agoraphobia Disorder and Agoraphobia Treatment A Psychotherapist Explains
Though agoraphobia disorder is an anxiety disorder seen frequently at our hypno-psychotherapy clinic here in the UK - around 5% of all adults develop an agoraphobia disorder - it is the only phobia regularly treated as a medical issue. As anyone who has ever experienced agoraphobia anxiety or a similar anxiety disorder is only too well aware, it is a condition that has the ability to produce intense and often incapacitating feelings of fear and panic. Until fairly recently, agoraphobia was...

End Dental Phobia and Dentist Fear and Smile
Dental phobia and dentist fear are conditions often seen by the hypnotherapist. Usually, clients who have suffered from this crippling fear for most of their lives are amazed to find that after just a couple of sessions of hypnotherapy they have been released from their often overwhelming fear of the dentist. After brief hypno-psychotherapy, they can at last visit the dentist and begin the process of restoring their dental health in a calm and relaxed manner, without the heart-palpitating,...

Anxiety Therapy Dealing with Anxiety
You have already experienced anxiety. Each and every single one of us has. Indeed, anxiety is something that each one of us is certain to have felt, in one form or another, at some time in our lives. As such, it really is nothing to become alarmed about. In truth, a degree of anxiety can even be beneficial. Occasional feelings of temporary, minor anxiety can push us on, giving us 'the edge'. It can keep us on our toes, allowing us to perform to a greater degree of excellence than we ever...
