People who suffer from an eating disorder tend to have an unhealthy attitude towards food. Most people who suffer with an eating disorder don’t feel understood. Usually they don’t like the way they look and constantly think about weight or body shape. It is also quite common to eat in strange cycles or to eat less and less. There are different types of eating disorders but all of them can have devastating results. Eating disorders are very serious as they change the way one thinks and behaves. They affect people of all ages and backgrounds. The most common eating disorders are anorexia, bulimia and binge eating.
There are different causes for eating disorders, sometimes there is a family history, feeling pressure to stay slim, upsetting events, relationship problems, criticisms, too much pressure etc. The common denominator seems to be ‘control’. In the beginning it may feel calming to be in control of food and eating but it soon goes out of hand and the disorder takes control.
Understanding the root cause of the disorder is often the key to recovery. Working with regression is very helpful and the subconscious is usually more than willing to assist. It is preferable to work on the underlying causes and release whatever is causing the issue. However, hypnotherapy has many different tools that can be used in various ways. Positive suggestions can help change the way you see yourself and how you feel about yourself.
Hypnotherapy can be a great help in feeling good about yourself and that way develop healthy eating habits, and actually enjoy the process of eating.
