Considering that more than half the population in the United States has a weight problem, the market for professional hypnotherapists dealing with the overweight individual is almost endless.  But, to be successful, the practitioner will have to master great hypnotic techniques with knowledge of nutrition and individual motivation.

Some facts that the hypnotist dealing with overweight should know will be listed below. These are not the only facts available; there is much more.  It is the responsibility of every professional to equip himself or herself with all the knowledge and skills possible.

When most people think of hormone-related weight problems, they think of the thyroid gland.  The thyroid is situated in the lower part of the neck and secretes hormones that regulate the rate at which the body uses energy.  Characteristic symptoms of under-functioning of the thyroid include weight gain, dry cold skin, low heart rate, and chronic fatigue.

Another form of weight gain associated with hormonal abnormalities is known as Cushing's syndrome. This problem is caused by and excessive secretion by the adrenal glands.

Statistics show that if a person is 25 percent overweight, his or her death rate is 1.7 times normal.  A person who is 40 percent overweight has a death rate 2.2 times normal.  Hypertension, heart disease, strokes, gall bladder disease, diabetes and arthritis are common examples of problems markedly increased by obesity.

Having in-depth knowledge of nutrition and the effects of overeating or poor nutrition on the human body is essential as a complete approach to dealing with weight control in an effective manner.  The client will feel more confident about the result of hypnosis if he or she feels that the hypnotherapist is knowledgeable.  The most important aspect of the treatment is the hypnosis itself with the choices of the proper suggestions.


Obesity is a state of excessive fatness being 20 percent over our individual ideal weight.  By far the most common cause of obesity is simply an excess of calorie intake over calorie output or eating too much and exercising too little.
