Unlocking the Mind’s Potential: Lessons from Igor Ledochowski

It is only to be expected that before experiencing an alternative treatment,Hypnosis is Scientifically Proven Articles such as hypnotherapy, that someone would want to be shown proof that it actually works. There have been plenty of scientific studies since the 20th century and they all seem to agree, hypnosis really does work. Within this article I will reveal just two of the many studies into hypnosis and how they show that hypnosis works.

Ahead of this though I’d like to describe how hypnosis worksas many people are unaware of this. People who have not been hypnotized often picture it to be a form of sleep where you can be controlled to perform certain actions against your wishes. This belief is brought about by stage hypnosis where the hypnotist “controls” their volunteer. The important word in that previous sentence was volunteer. A stage hypnotist will request volunteers, and merely by volunteering they’re already agreeing to do whatever igor ledochowski hypnosis the hypnotist asks them to do. It’s not hard to “hypnotize” a person into dancing around on stage but if the hypnotist then asked them to murder someone, do you think the volunteer woulddo so? Of course not since the volunteer is there to enjoy themselves, not get themselves put in jail.

Hypnotherapy (therapy from hypnosis) is quite different from street hypnotism. Prior to a therapeutic hypnosis session starts the hypnotist and the client will discuss the aims of the client and decide on the topics the session will concentrate on.

It is believed that hypnosis works basically by opening the subconscious mind to suggestion. From here the hypnotist can implant suggestions to aid the client to achieve their goal, whether it be to lose weight, overcome a fear or another thing entirely.

At this point you should have a reasonable understanding of how hypnosis works so now I shall show the evidence that hypnosis works as a form of treatment.

Hypnosis and Weight Loss

In an experiment to test the helpfulness of hypnosis on weight loss 109 subjects (who were aged between 17 to 67) finished a behavioral treatment which included hypnosis for half the people. This therapy took 9 weeks and after return check ups both 8 months and 2 years later the subjects who used hypnosis experienced a continued weight loss rate much higher than the people who didn’t. It was also found that those who used hypnosis were much better at achieving and maintaining their ideal weight goals.
