Sunshine Coast chocolate addicts can now seek an alternative solution to post-Easter sugar addiction.
Yin Health has begun offering Integrated Hypnotherapy from their Birtinya offices. Commonly utilised as a treatment for quitting smoking and weight loss, hypnotherapy can assist with breaking many bad habits or compulsive behaviours, including excessive chocolate consumption.
Controlling cravings for chocolate utilising willpower alone or banning chocolate entirely by going ‘cold turkey’ is not always a simple goal to achieve.
The World Health Organisation now recommends that sugar comprises no more than 10% of a person’s energy intake. Checking out the nutritional panel on an average Easter egg, it becomes obvious how easy it is to exceed these guidelines.
Integrated hypnotherapy works to stop overindulgence by speaking directly to the subconscious mind when a person is in a state of hypnosis – a state similar to daydreaming and sitting down to watch TV and eating a whole Easter Egg without noticing!
Oliver Armstrong, registered clinical hypnotherapist, explains that “your Subconscious mind is responsible for all of your habits, beliefs, fears, as well as controlling your heart beat, immune system, breathing and physical healing. What better way to bring bad habits under control than to speak directly to the part of the brain that created them in the first place.”
When a hypnotherapist works with you to adjust the ‘programming’ in your subconscious mind, changes to habits can happen quicker than relying on willpower alone – in fact, hypnosis has been proven to be 15x more effective than willpower alone on nicotine addiction (New Scientist Magazine).
Integrated hypnosis can affect change in your subconscious mind from the first session; you will even learn techniques to control chocolate (and other) cravings from day one. No need to rely on willpower alone to curb those cravings anymore.
