Cortisol & Stress – Why Having Both In Low Amounts Is Important

cortisol and stress reduction for weight loss

If you have excess weight and have had a lot of trouble getting it reduced, hypnosis is a method that can help. Cortisol and stress levels being too high can cause weight loss to fail. Hypnosis works with the emotional core to make changes and give the body the right conditions for weight loss. We work with clients from anywhere worldwide or in-office in the Chicago area.

Cortisol, the “stress hormone,” is a vital component of our body’s reaction to stress. Chronic stress has been related to elevated cortisol levels, which have been associated with weight gain and problems reducing weight. Increased hunger, especially for high-calorie foods, and a propensity to store fat in the abdomen might result from this imbalance. Cortisol can also interfere with insulin sensitivity and metabolism, making it harder to lose extra weight.

Once cortisol and stress levels reduce, weight loss and better health can become easier.

Signs Cortisol & Stress Levels May Be Too High

• Weight gain, especially around the abdomen
• Insomnia or disrupted sleep patterns
• Persistent fatigue and low energy levels
• Elevated blood pressure
• Impaired cognitive function and memory issues • Increased frequency of illnesses or weakened immune system
• Diagnosed with Type 2 or Type 3 Diabetes

The tool that can help you succeed in the lowest number of sessions is: hypnosis.

Hypnosis Helps In A Different Way

Cortisol is created primarily through our emotions. For most people who have problems losing weight, their emotions are the center of the issue. Once the body learns new automated ways to handle feelings, cortisol can reduce and weight loss can happen. But until a ‘way out’ is given to the mind and a replacement method is put in place, the body goes into a fight or flight response and stays there.

Hypnosis works with the part of your mind that regulates emotions, automated habits and reactions. Many clients who come to Meridian Peak Hypnosis with concerns about their weight, stress and their inability to lose weight have high cortisol levels. They then report they felt much better after just the first hypnosis session and see the way forward. Our method is completely different than talk therapy.

Hypnosis Helps You Make Changes in a Powerful Way

Many times we become wrapped up in “how” before we enable tools to create change. Hypnosis bypasses the “how.” Our hypnosis practitioners help you develop a new, positive way forward in an automated way. What many counseling and coaching methods turn into an uphill climb, hypnosis simply bypasses. You can feel more empowered in a more automated way without debating ‘how’ to accomplish it.

Hypnosis is a powerful tool to change cortisol and stress levels so you can lose weight easier.
