Challenging Bad Eating Habits Through Hypnotherapy

stop bad eating habits

Food is one of our guiltiest pleasures. Maintaining a healthy diet is critical for our bodies to function correctly, and eating right can lead to a long, happy life. But we have, unfortunately, become a society that has developed an unhealthy relationship with food. From using food as a safety blanket during stressful times, to desperately craving that next “sugar fix”, bad eating habits can lead to a range of long-lasting health and self-esteem problems.

Have you ever heard the phrase “You are what you eat”? While who or what you are is not necessarily defined by what you put into your mouth, the things that we eat and how much of it can have an enormous impact on our lives. Food gives us energy, allows us to grow and is critical in order for the body to function. So, why is it that we can’t simply eat whatever and whenever we want?

From Needing to Eat to Wanting to Eat

During ancient times, the human menu was limited to the few things that we could take from nature. From nuts and grains, wild vegetables and fruits, to venison and fish, our ability to process food has only progressed in recent times. Once we discovered ways to add sugar, salt and a myriad of different preservatives to our diet, people went from eating to survive, to eating to enjoy.

This had led to us becoming dependent on food for more than just nutrition. We have formed a collective habit of eating things that are bad for the body, without caring for the long-term consequences.

Our Unhealthy Relationship with Food

There are plenty of clearly documented eating habits and disorders. Many people suffer from a need to binge eat, while others are labelled compulsive eaters. Worse still, some of us have developed addictions to foods that are easy to become hooked on – those filled with sugars and unhealthy compounds. Obesity and the associated mental health challenges that stem from being overweight are among Australia’s top health issues and need to be urgently addressed.

As we have evolved, our brains have become programmed to encourage us to eat as much as we can. While this urge has been inherited from our ancestors as a result of  the need to eke out a living as wandering nomads, in today’s age, there is plenty of food to go around, and we have fallen victim to our bodies’ and minds’ instinct. Fast and junk foods have created a world that overeats, and as a result of the overwhelming stresses of today, many of us use food as a coping mechanism.

Changing How and Why We Eat

Bad eating habits can be as hard to break as smoking or alcoholism. Readily available in large quantities, many people are faced with obesity and health issues as a result of bad diets and eating more than they should. This then leads to self-esteem problems and, eventually, mental struggles and disorders.

Intense dieting is a short-term fix, often doing more damage than good, and changing out your entire refrigerator is an almost impossible task to maintain. Short of adopting an isolated lifestyle of subsistence farming, we must address the causes of bad eating habits and confront them, personally, in order to break these cravings.

A Sustainable Solution

Bad eating habits come from the brain. Our minds are always looking for a quick fix to satisfy sugar addictions, overcome stress, and make us feel good. The problems come later as we gain weight or face health complications as a result of these harmful habits.

Hypnotherapy, beyond its many other benefits, teaches us to fight off these cravings and learn to defeat the urge to give in to these bad habits. Therapists can use positive affirmations, visualizations and if the client wishes aversion therapy, to condition an ultra-relaxed mind to re-develop a healthy relationship with food.

While the principal goals of long-term weight loss, overcoming food addictions, and improved diet are readily attainable, the more enduring benefits of a healthy lifestyle and invigorated self-esteem are the real prizes of using hypnotherapy to break those bad eating habits.

 Perth Hypnotherapists Linda and Jan  are able to create a lasting solution for those struggling with finding the will to eat correctly. Whether addressing the emotional stress that causes cravings or treating the depression that leads to overeating, hypnosis has been proven to work in teaching clients to change their relationship with food.

So, before you grab that next mega-burger or double-thick milkshake, think about what it is that is stopping you from choosing a healthier alternative. A healthy food lifestyle is always the better option, and Hypnocare Hypnosis Clinic is here to help.

Here's what our clients have to say

Have been seeing linda for a few months now and has changed my life for the better greatly! I was sceptical at first but Linda made me feel so comfortable and she really is great at what she does My issue was with alcohol and no longer is an issue for me. Thanks again Linda

I was a habitual worrier. If all was ok my mind would search for the next problem. I came out of my second session with Linda and this had disappeared. I felt light. I had a realisation that whatever my situation, I had a choice. It was highly liberating and has persevered. I ended up studying hypnosis and have a new respect for what Linda helped me achieve. She's genuine and down to earth. Thanks Linda

Linda is a very experienced practitioner in the field. I feel very lucky to have had support from such a seasoned professional. Thank you for all you have done to help me progress Linda. It is much appreciated.

It’s been 8 weeks smoke free and the idea of picking up a cigarette is so unappealing I now sometimes wonder how I was ever a smoker. My skin is better, I'm not carrying around guilt every day, I don't stink, I'm not as anxious, basically I'm so happy it's all behind me and count my lucky stars I don't have to live that smoker life anymore. I think I was really ready to quit this time, and can't thank Linda enough for helping me make that happen. I didn't know if I had the strength to quit for good, but the session we did reminded me just how strong I am. Thank you millions and millions Linda, that one afternoon in your chair has changed my life and helped me kick a habit I've struggled with for over 10 years. Thank you so very much 🙏🙏

In 2008 I visited Linda in her Subiaco clinic to treat a psychological tick involving constant jaw clenching/clicking (probably around 200 times per day - for years). After just 1 session it stopped dead immediately - 100%. It has now remained a forgotten habit for 9 years... had I not gone to her, I would have probably developed an arthritic jaw by now!

Wow! There are no words that can really express my transformation after a few sessions with Linda. When I initially came to see Linda, I was suffering from anxiety and depression from a number of traumatic experiences I had been through in recent years. My anxiety and depression had started impacting my work, relationships and health. I averaged 2 HRS of sleep a night and sat on my couch every painfully stricken day, debilitated by everything that was going on. After my first session, I drove out of Linda’s office feeling light as a feather; I slept like a baby that night and signed up to a gym. By my 3rd session, I was comfortable with speaking to a group of people, I was sleeping regularly and had a huge motivation to go to the gym six days a week. Not only is my life on track, I am following my dreams. Things that I promised myself I would do one day, I am already doing. What stood out for me, was that Linda’s work taught my inner being to help myself, rather than rely on other people to help me find my way. Linda’s work not only instantaneously helped me, the effects of Linda’s work has unfolded over the last 3 months. Thank you Linda. You are truly a blessing.
