Eating Disorders, Is Hypnotherapy An Answer? 

To answer the above question, yes, hypnotherapy can and often does help those suffering from these life-threatening conditions. One of the most common problems for people with Anorexia, is, that quite often, they don't actually feel that they have a problem. Many people, some just like you, like to feel in control of their eating habits and weight. They might even feel a little panicky if it fluctuates too much and that is wise, understandable and relatively normal. After all, sudden weight gain or loss can indicate underlying health issues.

People with Bulimia Nervosa, on the other hand, generally know they have a problem, of course, that doesn't mean they have a solution. They know they are over-exercising, working excessively or whatever their strategy, to lose the weight they will gain if they don't. They know that forcing their self to purge after gorging a huge amount of food isn't normal. Nevertheless, they are no more able to address the issue than someone with anorexia! These behaviours are brain driven from emotional memory systems, and, at some level, perceptually related to survival. The irony though is that the behaviour itself will likely do them more harm, that what they fear will happen if they don't do whatever they do!

This is where hypnotherapy can help, it helps by changing the underlying belief systems that motivate the behaviour. In order to overcome these unhealthy eating habits, change has to occur in the brain itself, the very place where the emotional memories that drive the eating disorder are stored.
