Effects of Self-conditioning Techniques in Promoting Weight Loss in Patients With Obesity. A Randomized Controlled Trial

2016-12-01 16:08:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators hypothesized that hypnosis is an alternative technique that could be applied to help patients with obesity to lose weight.

The possibility that a self-conditioning technique (self-hypnosis) added to traditional approach (diet, exercise and behavioral recommendations) will be effective in determining weight loss with respect to the traditional approach in subjects with a body mass index (BMI) between 35 and 50 kg/m2 will be studied.

Description

Obesity is a serious health concern. Most lifestyle interventions fail over time; indeed, overeating often involves loss of control and compulsive behaviors.

Hypnosis could increase the ability to control emotional impulses. Self-conditioning techniques borrowed from hypnosis (self-hypnosis) increase self-control and self-management of emotions. Recent hypnosis techniques with a rapid-induction phase allow the trained patients to go into self-hypnosis in a few minutes and to repeat the experience in complete autonomy, employing a short time of the day only.

Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
