I've heard that hypnotherapy helps in weight loss, how safe is it and does it have any side effects? And is there any particular age group limit? I've seen many YouTube comments that hypnotherapy worked wonders and they reduced many kgs within just weeks, please tell me if it's as safe as it sounds, thank you.

Hypnotherapy is not a recognised form of therapy for weight loss in India. It is more for fun, than reality. People go in for it more out of curiosity than actual ground results. There is NO short cut to weight loss. You need a combination of Diet therapy+Regular Physical exercise to lose weight. It might also be prudent to go for weight reduction by surgery for your given weight. I have a friend- a surgeon in Delhi, who specialises in weight loss by surgery. Have a great day!
