If you avoid certain places, certain situations, and certain foods because you’re terrified to throw up, you’re actually suffering from Emetophobia – a fancy way of saying you have a fear of vomiting. Emetophobia is no joke; it’s a real disorder that affects millions of people around the world.
If you suffer from Emetophobia, you probably go to great lengths to avoid throwing up – including changing your behavior and adopting “patterns” that you believe will keep you from vomiting. Many of these patterns are irrational, and all they do is make you anxious and unhappy.
Why is this happening to you?
You can develop a fear of vomiting for a number of reasons. Maybe you had a particularly bad case of the stomach flu a few years back, and now you’re terrified to get it again. Or, maybe you threw up in public once, and the embarrassment was so bad that you’re obsessed with preventing it from happening again. Your vomiting phobia may have developed from something even more minor – like watching someone else throw up. Whatever the reason behind it, the best way to get rid of your fear of vomiting is through hypnosis.
Your fear of throwing up is based in your subconscious mind. Those past experiences have been blown out of proportion by your subconscious. Instead of seeing them for what they are – traumatic, but isolated events – your subconscious believes that if you do certain things, eat certain foods, or go certain places, you will throw up again. As a result, you avoid anything that could possibly make you throw up – even to the point of being completely obsessed and irrational.
How does hypnosis for Emetophobia work?
Hypnosis is the only treatment that deals directly with your subconscious. During a fear of vomiting hypnosis session, you and your consulting hypnotist will teach your subconscious that the past events that have made you terrified of throwing up were completely independent events – and that they have nothing to do with what’s going on in your life today. Eventually, your subconscious will understand that your behavioral patterns have nothing to do with whether or not you’re going to throw up. As a result, your vomiting phobia will disappear.
How long does it take for fear of vomiting hypnosis to work?
Hypnosis for Emetophobia can work very quickly. In fact, you may eliminate your fear of throwing up in just a few sessions!
Why don’t other treatments work?
Other treatments focus on your conscious thoughts and actions – instead of your subconscious, where the problem is actually rooted. Because they don’t address the heart of the problem, they are not as effective.
