This is a timely question given the recent research study that came out a week or so ago. In regards to the health concerns around soft drinks, links have already been established between sugar sweetened drinks and the risk of diabetes. Artificial sweeteners in sugar-free drinks have been associated with weight gain as well as other serious health issues, and now, artificial sweeteners have been proven to triple one’s chances of stroke and dementia. (This is according to a study published in Stroke, the journal of the American Heart Association.) And that study was looking a people who drink just one soda a day.
The good news is that hypnosis can help. People commonly seek hypnotists for smoking cessation in hopes of taking away the desire to do something they know is not healthy for them. The desire to drink soda can be addressed in a similar way.
Also, in weight management programs that utilize hypnosis, the hypnotist will address the desire to consume foods that do not contribute to our nourishment or well-being. That includes soft drinks, too many carbs and too many sweets.
So, it may be time to consider a lifestyle change where you give up soft drinks and focus on what promotes a healthy body. When science gives us a warning, it is important to pay attention.
