"It is in great part because of my involvement with Alchemical Hypnotherapy and David Quigley that I have been given a second chance at life. I struggled with an eating disorder for over twenty years. I also had an addictive personality. I had a big empty bottomless pit inside me. Yes, through the years I had learned many helpful techniques in my search for wellness. But, I was unable to use them until I found and healed the wounded part inside me that was calling to me for healing and triggered the addictive process. Through the Alchemical process I found a way to fill the emptiness. The Alchemy training is a personally transformational experience for me. My previous weight was over 200 pounds. I have lost over eighty-five pounds and have kept it off for 10 years. I am still enjoying the healthier slender me. I cannot say enough about the Alchemical training and David Quigley. I have had extraordinary experiences in my process and now as a therapist I continue to grow and benefit from my involvement with the Alchemical hypnotherapy trainings."

Clear the Metabolic Programming that Prevents Weight Loss
If you are overweight you may be tired of everyone telling you that losing weight is just about eating less food and or consuming fewer calories. You may have tried every diet old and new. But, sometimes it seems that our bodies have found a way to turn a plate of lettuce into a pound of fat! Many people who attempt weight loss discover sooner or later their efforts are complicated by metabolic programming that keeps weight on the body regardless of how one changes their eating habits.If you or your friend or client is overweight and you’d like to see if such programming is affecting weight loss efforts take the following questionnaire:
True Secrets of Permanent Weight Loss: Part One
Over 65% of Americans are overweight. According to researchers, Americans are getting fatter at the rate of ten pounds per decade despite a weight loss industry that is costing billions every year. As a hypnotherapist and hypnosis trainer for twenty-five years, I’ve dedicated myself to finding a solution. It seems to me that our approach to weight needs to address the underlying causes of our eating habits, rather than simply adding more superficial strategies which are not producing for many of my clients the long term results they deserve. While many weight programs seem to work in the short run, they frequently lead to cycles of weight fluctuation. Even if I help a client lose fifty pounds now, do I want my client to still be counting calories, struggling with new diet plans, and obsessing about their weight ten years from now? Should I consider that a therapeutic success? No, I believe we can do better. Let’s deal with the sources of the problem. That’s what this series of articles will address.
True Secrets of Permanent Weight Loss: Part Two
Many of us were raised in families where the expression of feelings was discouraged or even punished. Such phrases as “Shut up or I’ll give you something to cry about!” or “Children should be seen and not heard” represent extreme but regrettably common examples. More frequently however we find the parent who is simply too busy and stressed to listen to their children’s feelings and needs. Sometimes children discover on their own that eating some food can help them suppress their anger and tears. Sometimes they are programmed by their parents to eat in this dysfunctional way. A child cries with pain, or needing some attention, and even a well-meaning mother will shove a bottle into the child’s mouth or give her a cookie to silence her. It doesn’t take long for the child to learn this life-long eating habit.
True Secrets of Permanent Weight Loss: Part Three
In this article, we will explore another common pattern among overweight people: the use of food to substitute for creative expression. Abraham Maslow, one of the founders of humanistic psychology, is often credited with describing creativity as a basic human need comparable to the needs for food and shelter, in his theory of the hierarchy of needs. Although his theory remains controversial, I have experienced with many clients that this need appears to be very real. Children, we notice, are constantly involved, if given the opportunity, in creative play. We adults, however, have frequently learned to suppress our creative instincts, and all too often, to substitute eating for creativity. Here’s a questionnaire to determine if this is a pattern you or a friend has experienced.
True Secrets of Permanent Weight Loss: Part Four
One of the most important problems for the client who is serious about losing weight is portion size. Everyone wishing to lose weight needs to learn about healthy eating habits, the importance of fresh fruits and vegetables, avoiding highly processed foods, and the value of whole grains. In fact, I require every client I see to research proper nutrition or consult a trained nutritionist. But another major challenge is controlling the portions that we eat. One solution is to join a diet program like Jennie Craig which basically determines both your food choices and portions for you. Such programs have a high success rate for rapid weight loss. The problem of course is that it may be difficult to make the transition from this kind of highly regimented program to a self-regulating regime. While carefully measuring ones portions may be workable for some of us, many of my weight loss clients are looking for an easier way to manage portion size than always using measuring cups. And there is one. It requires that we understand the proper role of the stomach in managing our eating habits. We need to start listening to our stomach’s wisdom.Read More from This Weight Loss Article...
The Joys and Benefits of Hunger
Most of us experience hunger as anything but joyful. When pangs of hunger strike, most of us experience them as the enemy. Often hunger makes us confused, tired, and irritable. Worst of all; hunger pains can lead us to overeat, or to eat sweets and other junk food. Under the dire influence of hunger, we fear we will lose control of our dietary discipline, and stuff ourselves with food. So we learn to fear hunger itself.Read More from This Weight Loss Article...
