Hypnotherapy For Eating Disorders

The World Of Anorexia Nervosa

Hypnotherapy can and often does help those suffering from this life-threatening issue. Although this is often a challenging matter and one must never underestimate the gravity of the challenge facing someone with this condition.

One of the most common problems for people with Anorexia is that quite often they don't actually feel that they have a problem. To a certain extent, there is an element of body dysmorphia, what they see in the mirror, is not what others see! 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.

However, anorexia is a developmental maladaptation of this normal concern of one's body shape and weight. If you would like more information on eating disorders, please go here


Bulimia A call For Help!

People with Bulimia Nervosa can consume large amounts of food and generally know they have a problem. Of course, that doesn't mean they have a solution. They know they are either over-exercising, working excessively or whatever their strategy is to lose the weight they will gain if they don't. Alternatively, they also know that forcing themselves to purge after gorging a huge amount of food isn't normal either. Nevertheless, they are no more able to address the issue than someone with anorexia! These behaviours are brain driven by emotional memory systems, and, at some level, perceptually related to survival. The irony though is that the behaviour itself will do more harm than what they fear will happen if they don't behave the way 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. If you would like more information on eating disorders, please go here

A Binge Eaters View Of The Galaxy!

Binge Eating Disorder:
Is a newly defined disorder that looks like bulimia, with recurrent binge episodes but without the compensatory measures seen in bulimia. As a result, many binge eaters are overweight, although some are of relatively normal weight. As a compensatory strategy, sometimes binge eaters exercise or skip a meal here and there. They are often distressed about their eating and tend to eat quickly or in response to cues, e.g. stress, sadness, anger, feeling disgusted with themselves after a binge.

The Hypothalamic nuclei, the brain's major hormone factory, plays a part in creating pleasure derived from eating as such, it is a driver of emotional eating. In some cases of self-denial, anger, from not eating, is another hypothalamic way of subconsciously dealing with errant thoughts. if you would like more information on eating disorders, please go here
