Words such as ‘will increase your ability…’ ‘ you will be able to…’ ‘it will make you more…’ not forgetting the supposed people who claim they had achieved through the use of this ‘product’. These are just words – where is the proof?
Unless we have evidence-based research that shows client outcomes after having used a CD, not just once with one person, but repeatedly…. how do you, the consumer, know if the words you read are nothing more than ‘hot air’ and not from a few advertorials which after all are specifically chosen by the seller to get you to buy their CD?
Well, you can’t know, after all, there is no tangible proof. Words are cheap! You are purchasing in the hope that what you read will do all that it promises. And when you have tried one of these supposedly brilliant CD’s and it doesn’t work you feel disappointed.
But research shows us that because you desperately want to solve your issue, you will buy again and again some new promise, in the hope that this time it might be different. And the more you buy things that aren’t working for you, the more helpless you become that anything will work. Sad situation, don’t you think?
A good example might be weight loss. There is a range of treatment options for releasing weight and expert opinion says that the choice of treatment should be based on individual considerations such as the severity of the problem and any associated complications.
Whilst education in the benefits of diet, exercise, monitoring the marketing and labelling of junk foods is important, lifestyle factors are of equal importance, such as emotional and physical wellbeing.
The lack of emotional and physical well-being leads to nurturing oneself with inappropriate self-medication. One of these self medicating treatments is nurturing oneself through the form of excessive eating. Repetitive behaviours move things from short-term memory to long-term memory that then becomes a habit. And like any habit, it becomes hard to break.
Who would know the emotions going on inside you the most? Me? Someone else? Of course not, only YOU can know that.
People’s expectations of weight-loss programs are often unrealistic. Efforts should be made to moderate people’s unrealistic expectations of weight-loss programs. Just like we should be stopping anorexic people becoming models so we think that is the way we should all be. Let us all insist that designers make normal size clothes look good on normal figures. And to make matters worse, obesity is a chronic disorder that tends to recur after weight loss.
People suffering from obesity should have long-term contact with, and support from, health professionals. And being a Clinical Hypnotherapist, I would recommend that you look for a suitably well trained hypnotherapist. Why?
Psychology is very focused on the patient identifying who they are so that they can move forward with their lives. Whereas Hypnotherapy does not require the patient to necessarily understand intrinsically who they are on a conscious level, but that they can be released emotionally and move on. However, remember that CD’s are not intended as a substitute for medical advice and persons suffering from any physical, psychological or mental health disorder should consult their medical practitioner to ensure they are receiving the correct treatment.
And I could go on about any other issues in your life, be it smoking addiction, marijuana addiction, insomnia, irritable bowel, finger nail biting, anxiety, fears etc. etc.
So what about Hypnosis Help Wellness CD’s?
Oh! Sure! They have some of the same ‘Gizzmos’ like binaural beats and hypnotic music, all designed to help take your brainwaves into that lower brainwave state so that your conscious mind sits to one side while allowing your sub-conscious emotional feeling mind to take on board the suggestions on the CD.
But did you know that your sub-conscious mind is able to still reject these suggestions if it has any reason for not wanting to change? It won’t want to change if it feels too afraid to change, or if it feels the weight is protecting it in some way, or if the weight makes it ill, and being ill means people actually pay me attention and I feel loved, or any other such reason.
Another problem arises if the wording on the CD is not phrased in the correct manner. An example of this might be that the sub-conscious hears words like, “You won’t” as “You will” and so would be counter-productive to what you wish to achieve. And if the voice or accent on the CD grates on you, you won’t be able to stand listening to it.
So, all in all a CD is a very personal item to the listener. What to do before buying just any CD?
* Check the seller has done the right training that qualifies him or her to know what they are doing. That is always a good start. But don’t just take it from the seller.
* Check if they belong to an Association.
* Check they are listed on that Associations website.
* Check what it took to be able to join that Association.
* Make sure the Association hasn’t been set up by the seller to make themself look good. (Some Associations are set up by training organisations to validate their courses – great what?)
And after all that, it might be a good idea to use the CD in conjunction with a visit to a specialist who can help you with any problems that may be preventing you from achieving.
You might also consider buying a personalised CD. This may be more expensive but would be directly aimed at your problem.
