The Virtual Gastric Band study in Milford Massachusetts completed its final weight loss hypnosis session on December 22, 2010.

Erika Slater of Free At Last Hypnosis conducted the study.

The study consisted of 10 participants and four hypnosis sessions held between Thanksgiving and Christmas 2010, a period traditionally the most difficult for people to lose weight.

Although it was session four what that actually meant was the participants had only been modifying their eating for three whole weeks. However, the participants managed to achieve outstanding results despite the season’s food temptations.

You can read full results of the Virtual Gastric Band Milford Massachusetts study here, and listen to feedback from the participants from the posts for sessions two and three at the site.

The study participants will be contacted for a check-in every three months for the next year to follow their progress.

Erika Slater is a Certified Hypnotherapist in Massachusetts and specializes in weight loss. She is currently offering private Virtual Gastric Band in her Metro-West Boston location. Find out more details about these sessions by visiting her web site at: http://www.freeatlasthypnosis.com.

Virtual Gastric Band Takes on Type 2 Diabetes

Hypnotherapy has long been a popular technique for weight loss but with the rising levels of obesity in America – more than 65% of adults are overweight, obese or morbidly obese according to the National Institute of Health – it’s likely to become even more popular.

The rise in obesity has also sparked a rise in the incidence of type II (or type 2) diabetes. There is a direct connection between obesity and type II diabetes. In fact more than 85 percent of those who have been diagnosed with type II diabetes are individuals who are overweight or obese.

Many individuals with type II diabetes have struggled with their weight for many years and for health reasons are now considering gastric band surgery as the solution to their weight problem. These people are candidates for a Virtual Gastric Band procedure.

The Virtual Gastric Band procedure offers all the benefits of the surgery but because no operation takes place none of the risks, discomfort and recovery time of real surgery. The hypnosis technique was developed in Europe where it’s enjoying widespread success under different names and slightly varying techniques.

Using hypnotic suggestions a virtual gastric band is “installed” in a person’s stomach and thereby shrinking it to the size of a golf ball. The result is the individual becomes fuller quicker and satisfied on smaller portions of food which lead to weight loss.

The cost of the hypnosis procedure is significantly less than gastric band surgery. The sessions after the “fitting of the gastric band” educate the patient about food in a manner that’ll improve their health and not hinder it. It discourages the idea of dieting to drop pounds.

Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis is a technique that could greatly improve the health and lives of individuals facing type 2 diabetes without the risks inherent with surgery.

The Virtual Gastric Band – The New Weight Loss Tool

Many people struggle with being fat and overweight. So much so that a large industry has developed over the years just focused on helping you to lose weight. One of the methods developed for helping grossly overweight people lose weight is the gastric band surgery. There are different forms of gastric weight loss surgery and the band surgery is one method that ties off a portion of your stomach and creates a very tiny capacity stomach area.

This procedure is expensive and does have its dangers as with any surgical procedure, especially one that requires administering a general anesthetic. Many people are also turned away from having the surgery because you must meet certain strict requirements in order to be accepted into a program. And then there’s the necessity of following a very restrictive diet after the surgery. This diet is so restrictive that if not followed you can put your life in jeopardy from complications resulting from the surgery.

You can look over the diet that you are required to follow after having gastric band surgery. You will notice that if you had followed that diet prior to the surgery, you wouldn’t even need to go under the knife. What do you think will prevent you from overeating after the surgery? If your desire to eat large portions of food is in your mind, how would surgically altering your body solve your problem. Some people might say that having a surgery of this type would cause greater problems around food, not less.

A new tool has been developed to help overweight people lose weight. It involves taking the concept of what happens to a patient undergoing gastric band surgery and getting them in touch with how it would feel physically if they did. So many people who have used the virtual gastric band leave the office feeling a tightness in their stomach. It feels so real that they are reminded every time they eat that their “new” stomach just can’t hold the same unhealthy food they usually eat. But this is just one part of a healthy virtual gastric band program.

The real power of a program of this type is the way it changes your attitude toward food from the inside out. You will no longer eat for the emotional reasons that drove your relationship with food in the past. You start to release all those feelings that caused the bad behaviors of eating the wrong foods, eating too much, and eating at wrong times or in wrong places. And when you start to get in touch with your real physical hunger, you get in touch with how easy it is to reach a healthy weight that’s right for you.

When your ready to get serious about your weight loss efforts and really address the core reasons for being overweight in a healthy way, then call Marc at 212 223-1832 to find out how the virtual gastric band can help you reach your ideal weight, naturally.

Gastric Band Hypnosis or Gastric Band Surgery

So now you are getting serious about losing weight and you are considering some more drastic measures like gastric band surgery. Why do I say drastic? Because, in my opinion, anytime you are considering a surgical procedure you are considering a drastic measure. And sometimes you choose a process that is life threatening because you feel that you have run out of options. If you haven’t yet considered gastric band hypnosis then you should look into this process for a number of reasons. I will go into a few of those in a moment. First I’d like to go over one of the basic principles of weight loss.

Weight loss is accomplished by using up more energy than you take in. Energy is commonly referred to as calories. So when you translate that into calorie speak, you want to eat less calories than you use up. Roughly speaking it takes about 3500 calories to equal a pound of weight. So if you expend the equivalent of 3500 calories of energy you will lose a pound of weight. Or if you eat 3500 less calories than you usually do you will also lose weight. That could mean eating 500 less calories a day and at the end of week you should be 1 pound lighter. Now that you know the basics we can get on with some of the specifics of the gastric band processes.

With gastric band surgery, a band is placed around the upper part of your stomach. This is done in an operating room with surgeons, doctors, and nurses in attendance. You will be given a general anesthetic and you will be sent to a recovery room when the procedure is all done. There will be a number of small incisions made in your stomach if laparoscopy is done or a large scar in your abdomen if it is done the old fashioned way. After your surgery your stomach will be altered to allow only a small amount of food to comfortably be handled by it.
If you eat too much you will get a major physical upset that is called dumping. This will remind you to eat smaller amounts of food and it can also remind you of how serious it is to have major surgery performed. The consequences become very upsetting.

There is a new alternative to gastric band surgery. It uses the images of the surgery to create a mental understanding that the surgery has taken place. The process involves using the your imagination in a very unique way. This gastric band hypnosis is a viable alternative to the actual gastric band surgery because in many cases the participants claim to feel a physical tightening in their stomach. This helps to remind them that they only can eat or they only want a small amount of food. And when you eat less food you will become lighter in weight.

You can find out more about group and individual programs at gastric band hypnosis in New York City, NY.

The Virtual Gastric Band to Lose Weight

While many people have heard of the gastric band surgery, there’s a new program that supplies similar results, without the pain, trauma and expense of undergoing a surgical procedure.  This process is called the virtual gastric band program.  This program uses the power of the participants’ mind to have them respond as if they had a surgically altered stomach.  So they feel full much faster.  With just 4 or 5 mouthfuls of food.

The participants undergo a visualization process that has them amazed at how they can feel full.  Some participants even feel as if their stomach has shrunk, and they feel a tightness in their stomach area.  That seems to be a great response that adds fuel to determination to eat smaller amounts of food.

Not everyone will feel the physical sensation of tightness in their stomach, and they will still continue to eat smaller amounts of food because they just won’t feel like eating as much as they used to.  When this program is done properly, there is a powerful method included to satisfy whatever the emotional reason was for over eating in the first place.

This program is not about making sure that they believe their stomach has been altered, it’s really about getting people connected to the natural response of eating when hungry and stopping when full.  When you stop eating in response to emotions, triggers, and all other reasons that are not hunger, you will cut back dramatically the amount of calories you’ve been consuming that has caused you to gain weight in the first place.  And that’s a good thing.

Learning to take back control over your food choices and learning healthier responses is what should be done in the surgical approach too.  So you get all the benefits without any of the risks and at a fraction of the cost.

You can speak with a virtual gastric band expert in NYC at 212 223-1832, or you can call one of the other experts in the virtual gastric band directory section of this website.
