Can you be hypnotized into losing weight? According to Dr. Oz, the answer is YES!
I previously mentioned that I’m waiting for Dr. Oz to come out in full clown garb, riding a tiny tricycle and juggling some bowling pins. Well, he pretty much did it on today’s show (which was a repeat).
I don’t know about you, but I put Hypnosis right up there with the World Wrestling Federation (you know, “professional wrestling”, wink-wink) as far as being legit, and if you disagree with me I’d love to hear your reasoning.
I watched as Dr. Oz’s guest repeatedly put studio guests into “trances” and then “bring them out” of the trances. Call me a skeptic, but judging by the “volunteers”, being hypnotized is simply acting.
To see the clip for yourself, click here to see the video on the Dr. Oz website.
What did you think?
I’m actually surprised that the hypnotist didn’t pull out a pocket watch on a chain and perform the old “You’re getting sleepy. You’re getting very sleepy…” schtick.
Some of Dr. Oz’s shows have bordered on the ridiculous, but this one went over the edge, big time. Actually, it seemed very similar to the one on faith healing a few days ago.
If the show continues down the current path, they’re going to have to change the name to Dr. Odd.
The hypnotist claims that the brain is like a computer, and can be “reprogrammed” to enable you to lose weight.
Well, the brain is like a computer, but for better or for worse, nobody has been able to figure out how it works. And they certainly haven’t figured out how to “reprogram” it to cause weight loss.
Hypnosis for weight loss has about as much science behind it as Sensa does.
I have talked to a lot of people who have lost weight, and not one of them did it with hypnosis.
There is one thing that hypnosis is very effective at: Making money for the hypnotist!
Have you ever been hypnotized? Or are you a hypnotist? Please send me a comment! I’d love to learn more about it…
