What is Food Aversion?
Hypnosis for severe morning sickness in pregnancy is something the Duchess of Cambridge, is supposedly undergoing. She is reported as suffering from taste aversion. Food aversion often occurs when certain foods make us very uncomfortable. You may then get a feeling of nauseous, hate the taste or have problems swallowing. This leads you avoiding these foods as much as possible.
Often food aversion is about our programmed association to certain foods. Even though the vomiting is pregnancy-related, she could still start associating whatever she is eating with feeling sick. This then develops an aversion to it. Leading the person to avoid that food in the future incase the experience is repeated.
The problem comes when you just can’t stomach anything. Common food aversions include milk, meat, eggs and certain vegetables. Pregnant women suffering from severe morning sickness, HG, then tend to gravitate towards pastas, rice, bread, cookies and cake - leading to a nutritional challenge.
It should be noted that this is not anorexia nervosa. That is a completely different disorder a mental eating disorder, in which a patient will intentionally starve his or herself. The connection between food aversion and anorexia should never be made. While food aversion is usually temporary and tends to disappear, anorexia can be a problem that people deal with for a long period of time.
How effective is Hypnosis for Morning Sickness (HG)?
Hypnotherapy can help as the subconscious mind does not differentiate between fantasy and reality. Hypnosis can help to break down inhibitions, bypassing logic and reason, and engage with the subconscious mind helping to establish new associations and visualisation of a new reality.
Or in plain English, as reported in Kate’s case, the hypnotherapy is taking away any negative thoughts connected with food from the morning sickness, and replacing them with cravings for healthy, nutritious food.
