Let’s talk for a moment about “Compulsive overeating disorder”. People afflicted with this disorder have what can be characterized as an “addiction” to eating (and No, we aren’t talking about the Lay’s “Betcha can’t eat just one” challenge). We are talking about people who begin to use food and eating as a way to cope with their emotions and fill a space where they’ve begun to feel empty inside. Some people turn to overeating after a traumatic experience in their lives, others simply to cope with the stress of day to day life.
People who suffer from compulsive overeating disorder s tend to be overweight and typically recognize that their eating habits have become abnormal. Some who suffer from being overweight feel the stigma of society and also become depressed. The idea that one could just “go on a diet” can be emotionally afflicting to someone with this disorder, leading to extreme behaviors like Anorexia. People who suffer from this disorder are also naturally at a higher risk for high blood pressure & cholesterol and kidney disease.
For many, depression is an unbearable byproduct of their eating disorder. When your physical appearance and your mental disposition suffer, it can feel like there is nowhere to turn. If you are caught in the vicious cycle of overeating and depression, Hypnotherapy can help.
Hypnotherapy works for overeating because the problem is psychological. This is because the hypnotist works with your subconscious mind, the part of your mind that makes decisions. Somewhere along the lines, your subconscious mind was programmed to think that overeating would be a crutch in lifting you up, instead of weighing you down. During hypnosis your mind is relaxed and the hypnotist is able to deal with your subconscious mind to facilitate change. We have experience helping people just like you overcome overeating with an alarming frequency. We want to help you today. So what are you waiting for?
