Whilst the NHS has begun to tackle the huge obesity crisis, some alternative therapies may be more effective for others.

According to the Plymouth Herald, nearly 5,000 people were admitted to hospital due to obesity in a single year. Figures released by the NHS show that 4,796 people were put in hospital in Plymouth during 2011 to 2012 and obesity was either a primary or secondary reason for admission. Of the figures, 1,536 were men, whilst 3,260 were woman. The number of people bring admitted to hospital in Plymouth is the second highest in the South West of England.

Obesity is a growing problem throughout the United Kingdom and is proving a hard issue to solve. A complementary approach to solving the growing problem is by using hypnotherapy. The National Council for Hypnotherapy members help people to lose weight by increasing their motivation to lose weight and then helping them to change their behaviours around food. Specifically to create new behaviours around portion size, eating between meals and the types of food that are desired and as a result the client loses weight.        

A representative from the National Council for Hypnotherapy explained, ‘Whilst the NHS has begun to tackle the huge obesity crisis, some alternative therapies may be more effective for others. Hypnotherapy provides a fresh, new approach which has resulted in some clients losing large amounts of weight in a controlled manner over a period of time that can be sustained. If clients are willing to lose weight and open to something different hypnotherapy may be great for them.’
