The Hypnotic Gastric Band Therapy Explained
"Imagine The Impossible Is Possible!" - The Hypnotic Gastric Band Therapy Explained
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Gastric Band surgery. It's a way of physically losing weight, carried out in a surgical procedure.
It involves placing a silicone band around the top of the stomach to restrict your stomach size, which helps you reduce your food intake.
This procedure has grown increasingly popular in the last few decades to lose weight drastically. Especially for people who struggle to lose weight through dieting or other means.
Yet, this method can also have it's setbacks.
Surgery can be scary, and this one involves a lengthy recovery period and a strict liquid-only diet in the first six weeks.
There is a more straightforward solution, which is just as successful but doesn't involve any surgery.
Imagine, instead, a hypnotherapy program that involves a simple process of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) to imitate this highly successful method of losing weight.
It is much safer, healthier and also helps maintain long-lasting results.
It helps treat other triggers to eating behaviours and disorders around food.
It allows you to get to the core of your issues with eating habits and weight gain whilst relaxing you at the same time.
So, don't worry - you will not need to fork out for hospital bills or prepare yourself for surgery. You can do this from the comfort of your sofa at home. And I will explain to you why.
Setbacks to Gastric Band Surgery
The idea of having surgery scares most of us. But you may be willing to try anything to reach that perfect size. Still, you always have to weigh up the pros and cons - whatever decision you make!
You should never rush into anything. Especially if you're opting for a surgical method to lose weight.
Don't forget - this is your body, and you don't want to make a rash decision or do anything that will jeopardise your health even more.
So take some time to decide what's best for you; just because everyone else is doing it - doesn't make it the best option.
Gastric Band Surgery is a popular way that involves surgery helping you reduce and maintain a healthy weight.
The surgical procedure is carried out using anaesthesia, where the surgeon inserts a silicone band around the upper part of your stomach, shrinking it.
This intends to reduce the amount you eat, therefore helping you lose weight. It has worked for many people. However, it has also presented a lot of faults and problems. One of the main issues with this type of weight loss procedure - it is physically unnatural.
But also, it doesn't address the real issues why we overeat. Therefore, nearly 60% of people who undergo surgical gastric banding need additional surgery later. Either because:
- The port or the band shifts
- Or one of the two erodes into the stomach.
I know, neither sounds very pleasant!
Some other side effects can occur too. These include:
- Adverse reaction to the anaesthesia
- Injury to your stomach or other organs during surgery (inc. hernia)
- Inflammation of stomach lining/heartburn or stomach ulcers
- Gastrointestinal scarring leading to bowel blockage
- Wound Infection
- You have to follow a strict diet
- You can't eat solid food for up to a week
- Little guidance is given after
- Other issues surrounding eating disorders aren't addressed
- If strict recommendations aren't followed, other health issues occur
- Overeating leads to vomiting or oesophagus swelling
- Or in reverse, poor nutrition because of restricted food intake
So, with all this in mind - would you want to go ahead with it?
Then again, it also has its benefits, and one of those is that it guarantees a 40-60% success rate to lose weight by reducing the amount you eat.
However, the results are not instant. It will also involve following a strict regime you must implement in your lifestyle unless you risk more health issues and follow-up surgery afterwards.
This is the trouble, though; how do you really change that lifestyle?
When you're so used to living a certain way, sometimes, it's not so easy to say - "stop!"
Imagine if it was made easy….
I know away, and you'd be surprised just how easy it can be using hypnotherapy.
What if, as well - you didn't need the surgery at all. Imagine if you could imitate the effect of the Gastric Band surgery without actually undergoing the procedure.
That would be a miracle, would it not? Well, fortunately, it is all possible with the help of hypnotherapy.
How can Gastric Banding be performed with hypnosis?
Hypnosis can produce the same effect that the Gastric Band or bypass surgery does by using the power of your mind.
Your mind controls everything.
Everything from your conscious thought processes to neurotransmitting signals that control the rest of the workings in your body.
It has so much potential if only we knew how to control it properly.
You'd think it would be easy, but unfortunately, it's not as easy as we believe. More often than not, we are guided into doing the wrong things.
Life gets stressful, and our pain signals release a hormone called cortisol (which sits above your kidneys!). And without us knowing, it controls us. It leads us to think wrongly, so we look for a quick escape.
We look for anything to take the pain away…
Maybe, something sweet and tasty to satisfy the palette - it should do the trick!
Sugar provides fast pain relief by releasing our endorphins (serotonin and dopamine), which balance out the cortisol stress hormone.
They are our natural adrenalin.
The only trouble is - it is very addictive.
As soon as you eat it, you want more.
You've fed your thoughts with happiness. But as soon as these happy hormones go, they leave you chemically imbalanced.
Low moods become more frequent, so you seek more fuel to feed them with.
This can manifest in more unhealthy habits towards food, such as binge eating.
For this reason, it is crucial to understand that it is not so hard to walk in and out of surgery and expect things to be solved in one day.
It would be best if you got to the bottom of why and how too. Hypnotic Gastric Band Therapy doesn't just walk you through a cognitive process that imitates the surgery. It prepares you mentally in advance and helps you target and eliminate other food habits like the triggers.
By making contact with your subconscious, you can take back control and manage how you perceive stress. You will not seek out food anymore, and this will help reduce the amount you eat in the right way.
Other benefits to Hypnotic Gastric Band therapy over surgery:
- No scary procedure under anaesthesia
- Very relaxing
- No hospital appointments
- It can be done at home
- No post-surgery effects
- No strict fluids-only diet afterwards
- 95 % success rate
- It costs a fraction of the price!
So, there you have it - what's stopping you from giving it a try!
You've got nothing to lose, and you can rest assured you will not have to go through any gruelling surgical procedures.
Yet, you will still walk away with the same results - if not better.
So, all that's left now is knowing how it works.
How does the Gastric Hypno-band work?
Gastric Hypno-band therapy uses a combination of suggestion, visualisation and CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) techniques to make behavioural changes to your eating habits, which helps you lose and maintain a healthy weight.
This is carried out under a state of deep relaxation (hypnosis) induced by the hypnotherapist, like me. We do this by guiding you with verbal cues and calming techniques.
When you reach this hypnotic state at the countdown cue, then it will feel as if you have fallen asleep.
Instead, you are in a sleep-like, very relaxed trance - and still very aware of everything I say to you. In fact, you are more in tune than ever with the words I tell that part of your mind we fail to reach a lot of the time.
The part of your mind falls for habit and reads the pain signals wrong. The one where all your emotions can reside, past trauma. The part where it's all connected. That goes onto over-feeding yourself, despite the consequences.
And it can all be cured with hypnotherapy.
So, take a step forward and make that special break away from food.
Take complete control of your eating behaviour and set free your mind. Watch as you begin losing weight and gradually maintain that healthy size you hope to be. It's all in a decision, which is made easy with hypnotherapy.
