The Hypnotic Gastric Band
Restricting your stomach size by surgically fitting a real Gastric Band is rather a drastic step – with very real risks (see references below). But what if you could simulate it under hypnosis – and feel satisfied with less food? Interesting? In fact, research results on the effectiveness of the hypnotic, or ‘virtual’ gastric band are awaiting publication. Certainly I was surprised with my own results using it with clients even in a workshop setting.
For some fifteen years I’ve been successfully using hypnosis to help clients get into healthy eating patterns. Hypnosis can be a very effective way of seeding new habits, by making suggestions which sit deep in your mind. There are many different ways to do this, and different people have different reasons why they are not in control of their eating. In other words, people differ, don’t they? And what motivates one person may differ from the next.
That’s why I created my end to dieting on-line weight control programme, at enddieting.co.uk because it lets you discover which ways will ‘hit the spot’ for you. It gives you instant access to hypnosis recordings, and guides you on how to get the best out of them. And, I’ve included the Hypnotic Gastric Band to the selection of specialised hypnosis audios. That’s in addition to how to overcome self-sabotage, resistance, snacking, clearing your plate and other common problems.
