I am a firm believer in hypnosis as a tool to making positive changes in your life. I have used it in the past for my chronic pain and always found it very helpful. It didn’t cure my pain, but it did help take the edge off when I was experiencing painful flare ups. I am already a fan of Hypnotransformations and their certified Hypnotherapist, Kym Tolson, when I did a review for one of their chronic pain hypnosis downloads back in May. With our Fit for Fall event, I had another opportunity to try out another download and see how I liked it.
Hypnotransformations is a shop with something for everyone. There’s hypnosis to change bad habits like smoking or nail biting, hypnosis to make lifestyle changes like healing depression and selling successfully, relaxation hypnosis, new age hypnosis like past life regression or contacting your spirit guide and many others. Kym will also customize a CD for you based on your specific needs if your issue isn’t one of the ones listed on her site.
After much internal debate, I ended up selecting the Healthy Eating Hypnosis to review. Its focus is on training the subconscious mind to want to eat healthy, nutritious foods and LOVE doing it. I knew I needed some help in this area as I was always craving sweets and foods that were no good for me. I had a serious butter tart addiction. I wanted to eat better because I want to FEEL better inside and look better on the outside. I figured let’s give this a shot!
Kym emailed me a MP3 to download onto my computer (which can be burned onto a CD if you like). I am an old pro at this so I got myself very comfortable in my bed during the day. I can’t do these sesssions at night or I WILL fall asleep! I laid back and closed my eyes and let Kym’s gentle, soothing voice wash over me and get me fully relaxed. One thing I liked was that she doesn’t rush the relaxation process. It can sometimes take me awhile to get into that deep state of relaxation and some hypnotherapists will rush this process. I like that Kym does take her time making sure that you are completely relaxed. You will get more of out of the session if you can just let your mind and body go and focus on the sound of her voice.
I felt the stress and tension drain from my body and was fully awake but drifting off at the same time. Kym made detailed suggestions about healthy eating so that I would actually CRAVE to eat better foods. For this past month, I have eaten much better. I haven’t even eaten any butter tarts. Although I do fall off the wagon from time to time, I don’t seem to be wanting the sugary desserts as much anymore. I had a craving for cauliflower and dip the other day which is very different for me! As the days go on, it is getting easier and easier to resist the unhealthy foods. My willpower seems stronger now. I have lost 10 lbs in the last month just by eating better!
I plan to continue to use this download as one of my tools to keep me eating better. I notice when I eat better, I feel better and that itself is incentive enough to keep heading in the right direction!
You can purchase the Heathly Eating Hypnosis download for $16.99. Check out Hypnotransformations and find an issue that you want to tackle and then put your mind to it and do it!
