Achieving a state of health is more than just a physical or chemical affair; it requires engaging the mind. The mind directly controls your physiology, often in surprising ways such as when a single thought causes you to blush or drool (or both, depending on what you're thinking about). But that's just a parlor trick. A far more practical application of mind-body medicine is found in recruiting the mind to control blood pressure, stress hormones, immune function, healing responses and other measurable markers of health or performance.
Interestingly, your ability to heal yourself, or perform at a high level, or achieve your ambitions, is largely determined by your beliefs. And those beliefs are stored in a kind of neural-net software program running in your head. The good news is that we can change those beliefs, reshaping them to better serve our interests. And one of the most effective ways to do that is through hypnosis.
Evaluating audio hypnosis programs is a lot like eating at a salad bar. At some restaurants, the lettuce is old and wilted, the dressing has been spilled everywhere, and bits of one topping have scattered their way into the wrong bin. But at nicer restaurants, the lettuce is crisp and cold, all the salad extras are well organized and the entire salad bar is so clean that you could, well, eat off it.
Like salad bars, hypnosis programs come in all varieties, and some are better than others. I've listened to many programs over the years and have been less than impressed with quite a few. Some hypnosis programs on the market have poor audio quality that's so distracting, you can't focus on what's being said. Others rush the induction, leaving you still buzzing from the day's thoughts while trying to absorb the suggestions. And the worst programs don't even understand the importance of phrasing suggestions in a positive context, so you'll end up with harmful suggestions like, "You will no longer feel terrible about yourself." (In order to process this statement, your subconscious mind first has to imagine what it's like to feel terrible about yourself, which is exactly what you don't want.)
But listening to the programs from the Hypnosis Network was like eating from a gourmet salad bar. The audio quality was outstanding, the inductions were effective, and the suggestions were extremely well planned and executed. It's no surprise, really, since the Hypnosis Network hires some of the best hypnosis experts in the business to script and record these programs. Each hypnosis title features a different expert with a PhD in their respective field. Some of the programs even come with accompanying materials that provide additional information to your conscious mind. I found this to be an excellent way to absorb the information offered in each program.

Do audio hypnosis programs really work?
The short answer is yes, they do. They can help reshape beliefs so that your behavior shifts seem automatic and natural. With issues like weight loss, for example, this can lead to an accelerating cycle of success, where the first five pounds of weight loss encourage you to listen to the program even more, which further supports your beliefs and behaviors that lead to even more weight loss.
The main drawback to audio hypnosis is that the audio program cannot respond to you. It can't observe your physiology like an in-person hypnotist would do, nor can it alter the program according to what the hypnotist sees working (or not working) with you at that particular moment. The advantage, though, is that audio hypnosis programs are remarkably inexpensive compared to a live hypnotist, and you can listen to them as many times as you want without paying an additional fee.
There's also the convenience that you don't have to go anywhere, or make any appointments, to experience the benefits of these hypnosis programs. To me, this is a big deal, because I don't necessarily like going to somebody's strange office, and sitting in a chair that smells like somebody else's perfume. My home is my sanctuary, and I much prefer to experience hypnosis on my own turf. But that's just me. You might prefer to get away from home so you're not distracted by it, and so visiting hypnotists in person might work better for you. I encourage you to experiment with what works best and go with that. You may find completely different reasons for enjoying the many benefits of hypnosis.
You're constantly being hypnotized without your knowledge
In answering the main question posed above, though, let me assure you that hypnosis does indeed work quite effectively. In reality (which is a slippery concept all by itself), we're all being hypnotized all the time, mostly without our conscious awareness. Television advertising that attempts to associate a brand-name drug with positive images and emotions is a powerful form of hypnosis. And it works, because it gets people to go to their doctor and ask for the drug by name.
Our parents hypnotized us with all sorts of messages (whether they realize it or not) when we were children. As children, we didn't have the mental filters we carry as adults, and a lot of what we heard from parents, siblings or authority figures went straight in and became accepted as "fact" by our naive brains. Today, many of us still operate on those "facts" even though they are patently false. And if you were unlucky enough to have parents who hypnotized you with damaging statements like, "You'll never amount to anything" then you may find extraordinary benefits from reprogramming your beliefs and overwriting those old falsehoods that may have been holding you back before now.
Obesity and weight problems, in particular, often have their origins in self image distortions formed during childhood without our conscious awareness. When we lack self esteem, we often turn to food to overcome feelings of despair, isolation or shame -- all of which might have been programmed into us by ignorant parents, teachers or siblings. Over time, the eating behavior stemming from these self image distortions leads to obesity and diabetes, and while conventional medicine says the treatment for obesity is a patented chemical, the real core of the problem is our self image. By reprogramming our beliefs about ourselves and reshaping that self image, we can genuinely heal from the inside out, and our eating behavior will follow in step.
Heal the mind, and the body will follow. But it requires recognizing the programs playing in our own heads and reworking them to play positive messages instead of messages that sabotage us.
You see, we're hypnotized all the time: by the press, our friends and authority figures. But with these Hypnosis Network programs, you can take control over the suggestions being broadcast to your brain. Perhaps for the first time in your life, you can experience a program of intentional, positive hypnosis rather than the happenstance hypnosis taking place in society, most of which is designed by profit-seeking corporations who want you to believe that you need their products. The whole marketing of ADHD as a "disease," for example, is in many ways a massive hypnosis campaign designed to change peoples' beliefs and behavior in a way that maximizes drug company profits.
But with the Hypnosis Network, you can put the power of belief and your subconscious mind to work for you in a way that serves your interests. And that's a first for many people. Imagine a team of hypnotists working together to make YOUR life better, who have the pure intention of helping you transform yourself in the most positive, vibrant way possible! That's what you get when you tap into these Hypnosis Network programs.
Experiment to see what works best for you
You may find you like some programs more than others, by the way. A lot of this depends on your personal preference for voices and styles. I found I didn't like the voice on one particular program, but that was probably because it reminded me of a nasty librarian I had the misfortune of meeting in grade school. (I have a strange talent for remembering and identifying unique qualities of the human voice.) That was my own negative association, but you'll likely have a completely different take. In any case, they offer a one-year satisfaction guarantee, so if you find a particular program isn't to your liking, you can return it and either get a refund or try a different program.
Overall, I give the Hypnosis Network five stars for offering outstanding audio hypnosis programs at a fair price. I recommend them to everyone. And yes, I really mean everyone. There's not a person alive who couldn't benefit from more positive suggestions delivered through these audio programs. In thinking about health, performance, confidence and other issues, we often tend to forget just how large a role the subconscious mind really plays. And for many people, exposure to some positive programming (done right) can make all the difference in weight loss success, career achievement or sports performance. As any professional athlete will tell you, 99 percent of the game is about what's in your head anyway. Now, with the Hypnosis Network, you have an opportunity to reprogram what's in your head, giving yourself positive, supportive messages in a format that YOU control. I can't imagine a nicer gift to give yourself!
By the way, I was not paid anything by the Hypnosis Network to write this review, nor do I earn anything from the sales of their products. I cover this company (and its products) for one reason only: Because I believe it to be of great value to you, the reader. Hypnosis is a powerful tool for self transformation, and when I see a company that gets it right, I feel obliged to spread the word.
