This week I’ve been bombarded with enquiries about losing weight with Hypnosis, specifically – in the main – the Gastric Band or Hypno Mind Band technique. I guess the sunshine has got people thinking about how great you will feel when you look really hot and confident in this year’s summer gear …
I wrote an article about weight reduction with Hypnosis and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) earlier in the year, however I kept it generic and didn’t mention the Hypno Mind Band technique, so for those of you who are interested in hearing a little more about this very effective way of losing weight, read on!
Let’s look first of all the medical process of gastric band work – the surgical type. You can expect to pay a medical surgeon anything between £5,000 – £8,000 and the process involves invasive surgery placing a band around the top region of the stomach. This band creates a small pouch that can hold around half a cup of food as opposed to the usual six cups or so which the average stomach holds. When the pouch is full, it sends a message to the brain that the entire stomach is full. This means that the patient is hungry less often, feels fuller more quickly, eats smaller portions and therefore loses weight over time. Research shows that over 80% of patients will experience symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, reflux or regurgitation of food, slipped band, obstruction, constipation, diarrhoea and difficulty swallowing.
As with every type of intervention, there will be clients for whom this technique is suitable; a last resort, even. However, if you’re looking for something that costs less than a tenth of the lower end of the price bracket and which yields great results without undergoing surgery and potentially risking any of these unpleasant side effects, then you might consider it a good idea to experience the Hypno Mind Band technique instead!
There are lots of success stories about hypnotic gastric band techniques, with success reported at around 80%. The process is designed to create a different relationship with food for the client and encourages them to eat healthier food in smaller portions. Whilst under Hypnosis, the client experiences in their mind the process of having a gastric band fitted – and because suggestions are embedded deeply into the unconscious part of the mind, the process is incredibly effective.
The Hypno Mind Band technique which I use – there are a few variations around – takes place over 5 or 6 sessions, usually a week or a fortnight apart depending on an individual client’s progress. The program tackles not only the client’s eating habits, but also any limiting beliefs they may have around their ability to lose weight and be healthy and also deals with any underlying emotional challenges which may have contributed to weight gain in the first place.
As with standard nutritional programs, the client is asked to maintain a food diary during the course of treatment and after session 3 of the programme, they are required to follow an eating program similar to that which they’d follow had they had the actual surgery.
Doesn’t that sound a far more palatable solution than actually undergoing surgery?
If you’d like to understand a little more about Hypnosis, you might want to take a look at a couple of previous blog posts I’ve written on the subject: The Beginner’s Guide to Understanding Hypnosis and Hypnosis – Debunking The Myths. Do remember, however, that Hypnosis is not a magic wand; it’s an incredibly powerful tool to assist you in achieving the results you desire in any part of your life, however it takes some commitment from you too!
Obesity is a growing problem; over eating and not exercising will damage your health – it’s not rocket science – and once you’re on that path, it can be a slippery slope. If you find yourself beginning to venture down that road, what needs to happen for you to take action? Type 2 Diabetes to strike? Risk of heart disease? Classification as morbidly obese? Remember that the choice is yours and there’s no time like the present to make the choice to begin to lead a healthy lifestyle right now. If you’re more than a couple of stones overweight, the Hypno Mind Band technique may well be the perfect starting point for you if you want to make a commitment to yourself to start creating a difference!
