A solution for weight loss could be Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis. Gastric Band operations are becoming increasingly popular in the UK and worldwide. According to the British Medical Journal there are over 240,000 people on NHS waiting lists. Although the operation is available on the health service most people elect to undergo Gastric Band surgery privately due to the very strict criteria most people have to meet and the strain on NHS budgets .
Gastric Band Surgery can be expensive – costing as much as £3,500 – and like any surgical procedure can have adverse side effects and risks. For these reasons, many people are now turning to a Hypnotic Gastric Band procedure.
Gastric Band surgery is conducted by laparoscopic/keyhole surgery via the upper abdomen where the stomach is situated. The stomach can be best visualised as a “sausage balloon” similar to the ones seen at children’s parties and which are often twisted into shapes. In Gastric Band surgery, approximately one third of this “balloon” has the band placed round it and tightened, creating a tiny stomach pouch and restricting the passing of food and fluid to the other two thirds of the stomach. This band is what we commonly call the Gastric Band, and it can be tightened or loosened to allow more or less food to pass through from the new stomach pouch to the remainder of the stomach and small intestine. The operation lasts about an hour and is performed using a general anaesthetic. The Gastric Band Hypnosis procedure also lasts an hour, however no surgery is required. Instead, hypnotherapy is used to convince the patient through the workings of the subconscious mind that a surgical procedure has been carried out.
A combination of hypnotherapy, neuro linguistic programming (NLP) and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can be used during a Virtual Gastric Band procedure. At the end of the session people tend to change their eating habits and consumption, much the same way as they would have done after a Gastric Band surgical procedure in a clinic or hospital environment. With a Virtual Gastric Band procedure costing a fraction of the cost of the full medical procedure it is a viable option for those who have been struggling to lose weight and keep it off long term.
The Virtual Gastric Band procedure through the use of hypnosis is one that is offered by trained hypnotherapy practitioners, and is readily available at the Glasgow Helpful Hypnosis Centre. For more information, click here…
