Not only can Hypnotherapy rapidly and permanently set you up for success with unwanted weight and disordered eating, it can also make life-saving dietary and lifestyle changes for people with serious, chronic illnesses including diabetes, much more easy and effortless. Many people with diabetes need to make drastic changes in their eating, and this can be very difficult for some, especially those with sugar addictions.
The human mind is designed in such a way that emotion and subconscious beliefs and habits override logic. We have all seen examples of this when it comes to any kind of addiction. People with lung disease continuing to smoke, people with diabetes continuing to eat carbs and sugar, people with food addictions continuing to eat even as their health is failing. Hypnotherapy is a highly effective way to rewire the mind to effortlessly and easily eat foods that support health, and avoid foods that exacerbate conditions, as well as create a desire to regularly incorporate healthy exercise into one's lifestyle.
The United States National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health actually conducted a study on how Hypnotherapy can be used to help people with diabetes in many ways, including diet, stress and even wound healing.
The study stated that: “Hypnotic suggestions may indeed serve as a motivational coach and may be used effectively to alter beliefs and behaviors and hence serve as an ancillary method in the management of diabetes.
The increased suggestibility shown during the hypnotic state would be helpful in increasing compliance for exercise, diet, and other lifestyle changes required for diabetes management, including stress reduction that is associated with the better metabolic control.
Hypnosis may also be a helpful tool to induce relaxation, decrease psychological morbidity, often associated with diabetes, and accelerate wound healing, in case of diabetic foot ulcers.” If you have a life threatening illness that requires a change in your eating and lifestyle, Hypnotherapy is an excellent way to transition easily and effortlessly, and live a longer, healthier, and happier life.
