This new study showing that childhood obesity may increase the risk of multiple sclerosis (MS) is one more reason why we must act now to prevent and reverse the obesity epidemic in children and adults. The Seattle weight loss hypnosis and Bainbridge Island weight loss hypnosis clients know that obesity is preventable. As parents, grandparents and responsible adults we owe it to our kids, our nation and ourselves to take action now. The results of obesity go far beyond appearance. The associated diseases of obesity are deadly and very expensive. Health care costs are bankrupting America needlessly.
Children are naturals at self hypnosis and then can make changes in what they eat, how much they eat and ultimately their weight and their health. Children can easily learn hypnosis to be more active and also use self hypnosis for academics.
Medical hypnosis is also effective in minimizing and eliminating the symptoms of multiple sclerosis. In my Seattle hypnosis and Bainbridge Island hypnosis offices I specialize in hypnosis for autoimmune diseases like MS.
Obesity May Increase Risk of MS in Children and Teens
Newswise, January 23, 2013: Being obese may increase the risk of developing multiple sclerosis (MS) in children and teenage girls, according to new research published in the January 30, 2013, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.
Over the last 30 years, childhood obesity has tripled. In the study, the risk of pediatric MS was highest among moderately and extremely obese teenage girls, suggesting that the rate of pediatric MS cases is likely to increase as the childhood obesity epidemic continues.
The study found that the risk of developing MS was more than one and a half times higher for overweight girls than girls who were not overweight, nearly 1.8 times higher in moderately obese girls compared to girls of normal weight and nearly four times higher in extremely obese girls.

You’ve probably heard me say many times that ending childhood obesity has to be a family affair. Involve your entire family in making healthy food choices and in being more active. Moms and Dads, it is up to you to buy healthy food and snacks, prepare the healthy meals and take your kids out and exercise with them. It never works to try and put a child on a diet while the parents are eating McDonald’s. It doesn’t work to tell your kids to go outside and play while sitting on the couch with the remote. Go for family walks, hikes, bike rides and swims.
As a family, you can learn self hypnosis. Using hypnosis makes it easier to change food preferences and to increase the desire for exercise. And the side benefit is that the entire family has a powerful tool for change that they can use for the rest of their life for academics, sports, relationships, work and life in general. With weight loss hypnosis eating healthy can be easy and fun.
