Hypnotherapy for Lactose and Gluten Diets
As those with allergies will know all too well, there are diets you choose, and diets that you have no choice about. If you’re gluten or lactose intolerant, you’ll often find that you can’t have some of the most common meals and beverages that most of us just take for granted, like toast with butter, a cup of hot chocolate or a slice of pizza.
Hypnotherapy for Lactose and Gluten Diets can help you not only to gain control over cravings and regain a calmer gut by reducing the damages of stress, often related to intolerance, but also by making those new foods more appealing to you.
How do I know if I’m gluten or lactose intolerant?
Usually, these allergies are diagnosed with blood tests and confirmed with an endoscopy. If you think you have an undiagnosed allergy, here are a few things to look out for.
When those with gluten, wheat or dairy allergies eat food that doesn’t agree with them, they experience:
• Severe abdominal pain
• Frequent, painful bowel movements or diarrhoea
• Mouth ulcers which are prone to going septic
• Skin complaints
• Complete loss of appetite
• Erratic weight loss
I have an allergy, but I don’t like most of the food in my new diet. Help!
While there is an increasing number of specially made products in supermarkets and restaurants which can substitute these foods and have a similar taste, the quality of them varies, and it’s not uncommon to find that you don’t like them as much as the meal they are meant to replace. This makes the transition between diets challenging and frustrating without the right assistance.
Hypnotherapy is popular among those struggling to change their diet, because at its most successful, it can put you off the dairy or gluten meals that you used to love quite quickly, taking the positive associations and emotional rewards that your brain creates when you eat them, and attaching them to meals that will not damage your body.
A lot of people who have just been diagnosed with a food allergy find it incredibly hard to shop for food. How would you like to be able to go to the supermarket and naturally seek out produce that will sustain your body, lessening the temptation to buy the food that will make you ill? After a course of hypnotherapy, many clients report that they:
• Can transition between the old and the new diet much more easily
• Enjoy gluten and dairy-free foods more
• Manage their symptoms better if and when they start.
