Does Hypnotic Weight Loss 'Surgery' Really Work?
By Pat Ferguson / Source: HamptonRoads.com
Hypnotic motivational guru, Paul McKenna swears he can help 7 out of 10 people achieve sustainable, permanent weight loss through the power of hypnosis.
Dr. Oz recently interviewed McKenna, presented compelling testimony from his followers who swear by the outcome: After eating only a small portion of food, the feeling of fullness followed by some nausea and pain (akin to bypass surgery) were common occurrences for those who went through hypnotic therapy for weight loss.
"When they change on the inside they change their behavior on the outside" is the simple answer to why hypnosis seemingly works for some. McKenna even has a way to accelerate a slow metabolism through the power of suggesting pleasant and desirable thoughts while linking those thought to some form of physical exercise.
You simply cannot force your body into changing when you've not committed your behavior to follow suit. They may help you to start along the path to recovery (and some will need that start), but they never will replace behavior or permanently control it. Hypnosis might help you "change" your way of thinking, but behavior modification therapy, prayer, meditation and self discipline (learning to say no), along with educating yourself to know more about nutrition can do just as much.
