The Drs’ Staffer Tries Hypnotherapy to Kick Sugar

ABSTRACT:  March 10, 2017

The Doctors‘ Social Media Producer, Karyn, is giving hypnotherapy a try to kick her sugar habit. ER Physician Dr. Travis Stork says it’s not surprising that so many of us can’t resist sweets – research has shown that sugar may be as or more addictive than cocaine.

Karyn has always loved sugar. She eats chocolate in the afternoon and she can’t stop. “When I try to stop sugar, I feel empty,” she says.

“When we are relaxed and feeling safe we become open to suggestion. Most people try to make changes to their lives when they are extremely stressed out, but when we are operating from a place of fight, flight or freeze, it is difficult to make lasting changes to our subconscious habits or beliefs. The body is essentially on lock-down, in survival mode, and it won’t allow us to transform without a struggle. The relaxed, safe, meditative state we are in during hypnosis allows us to bypass the critical mind and improve our lives from the inside out in a very efficient, comfortable way.”

Karyn is in tears when she comes out of hypnosis. “And I don’t know why!” she says. “It’s a good thing.

Karyn says her cravings are gone. “I thought it would help me with willpower – but I truly don’t even want sweets!”

Hypnosis isn’t magic and, despite how it is depicted in the movies, it is not mind-control and should not be expected that one session will cure us of all of our problems for a lifetime. Like any valuable tool, you have to want the results in order to experience them, and the process requires commitment. While every client is different, a study by Dr. Alfred Barrios found that, on average, 600 sessions of psychotherapy resulted in 38 percent improvement for clients, but just 6 sessions of hypnotherapy resulted in 93 percent improvement. Six sessions is the average hypnotherapy treatment for any topic. In addition, as needed “tune-up” sessions for certain topics can be a great way to maintain fabulous results for the long haul.
