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.
