CLINICAL STUDIES AND MEDIA INFORMATION
The American Medical Association, British Medical Association and National Institutes of Health approve hypnosis for clinical use. Clinical studies demonstrate how through the use of hypnosis one can release unwanted weight.
- In a meta-analysis, comparing results of adding hypnotherapy to weight loss treatment, multiple studies showed that hypnosis increased weight loss. The average loss was 97% during treatment. More importantly, hypnosis increased the effectiveness of POST TREATMENT by over 146%. These results demonstrate that hypnosis works better over time. (Allison, David B.; Faith, Myles S(1996). Hypnosis as an adjunct to cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy for obesity: A meta-analytic reappraisal. Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 64(3): 513-516.).
The 60 females were split into hypnotherapy and non-hypnosis groups, with both groups being given weight loss behavioral treatments and counseling. The group using hypnosis lost an average of 17 pounds at the 2 month follow up, while the group not using hypnosis only lost about 0.5 pounds at the 2 month follow-up. This study also suggests that “hypnotizability” and social and educational backgrounds has no effect on results. (Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 54: 489-492).
- A study was done between two weight management groups for a total of nine weeks. One group uses hypnosis and one did not use hypnosis), the hypnosis group that used hypnosis continued to get results in the two-year follow-up. The non-hypnosis group showed no further results. (Journal of Clinical Psychology 1985).
