One of the most detrimental side effects of Quitting Smoking is Weight Gain! Many people who are trying to quit smoking end up failing because they incur a dramatic gain in weight. Moncton’s premier Quit Smoking Treatment Centers also offer Weight Control options as part of their Stop Smoking Therapy.
Hypnosis does not purport itself to be a “diet” but rather one of many tools that can help you be successful with eating nutritious food and exercising. Hypnotherapy helps people experience in a multi-sensory way what it feels like when they are strong, fit and in control and to overcome their mental barriers to achieving those goals. Hypnotherapy can specifically help people resolve the underlying psychological problems causing them to hate exercise, experience intense cravings, binge at night, or eat mindlessly. It helps them identify the triggers and disarm them.
Hypnosis involves the induction of a trance state. It may or may not have a therapeutic purpose. When a person is hypnotized, he or she is typically required to think, feel and behave in ways that are incongruent with reality (i.e. You’re not hungry!). Many associate hypnosis with mind control. This is a myth. In order for hypnosis to work, the person must be a willing participant.
In addition to using it for weight loss, doctors and hypnotists have used this technique to help people quit smoking, relieve headaches, alleviate anxiety, and get rid of specific phobias— like a fear of flying.
Yes, hypnotherapy can help people trapped in this vicious never ending cycle by reprogramming their subconscious minds to eat less fattening foods, to desire less food, and to start thinking and behaving more like a thin person. Powerful suggestions are made during #hypnosis sessions to STOP clients from wanting to snack between meals, or eat junk food before bed time, or eat candy while watching television or surfing the web. Rather, these habits can be replaced with positive ones, such as drinking more water, eating fruit, going to the gym, or taking the dog out for a walk. Used together with a healthy meal plan, hypnotherapy can be a very effective method for achieving your permanent #weight loss goals.
Low Level Laser acupuncture helps patients lose weight, achieving reductions in hip and waist sizes. This type of needle-free acupuncture can also reduce cholesterol and insulin levels. These results were documented in a study of obese post-menopausal women with metabolic syndrome. Laser acupuncture and control groups were randomly divided to avoid bias and the results were confirmed with objective measurements: anthropometric, fasting blood glucose and insulin levels, homeostatic insulin resistance, lipid profile.
Laser acupuncture evolved from the study of photobiology, how light affects living beings. Low level lasers, known as cold lasers, are used for this type of acupuncture in most applications. Cold lasers are used in 635 nM red, 450 nM blue and 532 nM green laser acupuncture. They do not produce heat and do not burn the skin. The use of 700-1000 nM heat producing infrared lasers may also be employed but are less common.
This latest research demonstrates that laser acupuncture significantly enhances the therapeutic value of diet and exercise interventions for obese post-menopausal women with metabolic syndrome. Weight loss is very difficult with metabolic syndrome because the insulin-glucagon pathway does not function properly. Laser acupuncture helps to correct this imbalance and facilitates weight loss.
Metabolic syndrome is a group of risk factors. Central obesity, excess body fat on the upper and middle parts of the body, is one of the primary symptoms. Insulin resistance is also present and results in increased blood sugar and fat levels. High cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure are indicators of metabolic syndrome. This disorder may lead to excessive blood clotting, systemic inflammation, diabetes, stroke, heart and kidney disease, and poor blood circulation in the legs. Conventional therapeutic approaches include pharmaceutical drugs, dietary modifications and exercise programs.
The research team notes that needle acupuncture is effective in reducing BMI and abdominal fat by decreasing abdominal visceral adipose tissue. This new clinical investigation was designed to measure the effects of laser acupuncture on lipid metabolism and insulin-glucose homeostasis. The diet and exercise programs for the control group and the laser acupuncture group were identical, anthropometric measurements were taken by a therapist that was blinded to group assignments and patients were randomly divided into each group. Anthropometrics included measurements of hip and waist circumference. Biochemical analyses were based on blood samples and included measurements of glucose, insulin, HDL and LDL cholesterol, and triglyceride levels.
Low level laser therapy (LLLT) “fat melting” treatments have been all the rage a few years ago, promising to burn fat and help you lose local fat.
Zerona Cold Laser is one of these treatments that promises “Body Sculpting” etc with no medical prove of any of their claims.
The only thing that LLLT achieves is some temporary water retention reduction, which providers of these treatments call “weight loss”, “inch loss” or “fat loss”, where it is simply temporary lymphatic drainage, for which LLLT is indeed helpful.
The whole non-surgical “laser liposuction” industry has been based on a couple of dubious studies published a decade ago, which laser experts identified as simply fake. And reality has indeed shown that there is no way the results described in those studies are real.
Imagine Laserworks provides professional Weight Loss Counselling and Low Level Laser treatments.
The laser treatment works as an appetite suppressant, reducing cravings.
Cold, soft, non-invasive laser beams are directed at 37 points on the body – similar to acupuncture, but with out needles.
You will sit in a comfortable recliner while a technician points beams of light at the tips of your fingers and toes, and at points on your knees and elbows.
Cold lasers, also known as low level lasers, stimulate the metabolism and enable the body to use food effectively rather than storing it as fat.
When stimulated with a laser beam, specific points on the body signal the brain to release endorphins.
Increased endorphins reduce production of the stress hormone, cortisol, in turn reducing cravings. When your body is in balance, your cravings will stop.
The laser treatment improves will power. You’ll feel motivated to eat smaller portions, stay away from sweets and increase your level of physical activity.
Eating more fruits and vegetables will help along with less saturated fat and sugar.
You will experience increased energy.
