Gastric Band Hypnosis

I am continuously amazed by the positive impact hypnosis can have on people's lives and how quickly you can start to see positive changes. The program has been designed using the latest hypnotherapy techniques to get you the results you want fast. During the actual surgery, a band is placed around the top of the stomach restricting the flow of food and creating a sensation of being full after eating less. The physical band is used to trigger a psychological response that results in the patient feeling full after only a small amount of food.

By using hypnotherapy and visualisation techniques we work to create a newly conditioned response, allowing you to feel full after less and develop new patterns of behaviour. We all have a desire to be healthy however sometimes unconscious behaviours block our progress and keep us trapped in negative cycles.  Whеthеr you want to lose a littlе or a lot of weight, breaking down those unconscious barriers increases your chances of success and the probability that the weight will stay off. The process works by helping you develop a positive self-image, a good relationship with food and experience all the benefits of gastric band surgery (Without Any of The Risks!).

How Weight Loss Hypnosis Works

By tapping into the subconscious part of the mind you can experience all the benefits of having a surgical gastric band fitted, by using hypnosis there is no risk and it costs a fraction of the price of the actual gastric surgery. Your unconscious mind cannot tell the difference between something vividly visualised and an actual reality. You can learn how to use your vivid imagination to achieve a result that you desire and get the figure you have always wanted.

The experience of Hypnosis.

Traditionally hypnotherapy uses the Stanford Hypnotic Susceptibility Scales, we all fall somewhere of the scale and it largely dictates our level of experience. At no point do you lose control of your free will and the sensation is closer to dreaming or meditation. Hypnotic suggestions and visualizations are used to guide you through the process of psychologically experiencing having a gastric band fitted to your stomach.

It has been argued that no person can be hypnotized if they do not want to be and it is recommended that a level of personal commitment be accepted to making the changes required. Hypnosis is only a therapeutic tool that is used to help guide your actions and behaviours.

What the Media Community Say

American cosmetic surgeon and author Dr. Maxwell Maltz, after work conducted with patients he claimed if you could improve one's self-image in turn the person would lead a more successful and fulfilling life.

Quote From: Dr. Maxwell Maltz "Your subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between an actual experience and one that is vividly imagined. As a person recognizes her capability and images accomplishing that which she wants to happen, the subconscious mind begins to work out a way to make it happen. "The Theater Of The Mind" can be used whether you are a visual person or not. It works just as well with those who think mostly with inner voices, sounds, and feelings."

“We all like to think we are in control of our lives - of what we feel and what we think. But scientists are now discovering this is often simply an illusion.

Surprising experiments are revealing that what you think you do and what you actually do can be very different. Your unconscious mind is often calling the shots, influencing the decisions you make, from what you eat to who you fall in love with. If you think you are really in control of your life, you may have to think again.” BBC Horizon.

Research in Neuroscience has shown that while we may be consciously aware that something is an illusion, on a deeper unconscious level the brain still reacts as if the illusion is a reality. These unconscious processes can be used to help modify behaviours and to allow you to experience something had consciously you know is not real. Your sense of self and what you experience as reality may not be as fixed as you think.

By using hypnotic suggestions and visualisation techniques your unconscious and subconscious mind can be exposed to new more positive patterns of behaviour and experiences.

Gastric band surgery: Procedure, Risks, and Recovery

Obesity is becoming a leading health hazard of the modern world. Where some continents of the world are striving to end scarcity of food and prolonged famines, the west is overindulging and facing the curse of obesity. However these scenarios are not particularly exclusive, this seems to be the case with most of the world. There can be a variety of methods which can be employed to combat obesity and to lose weight. But sometimes, these methods are not effective.

That is where the gastric band surgery comes into play. It is the last treatment modality which can be employed by people when nothing else works for them. It has been proven to be quite effective when it comes to losing weight.

What happens during the Gastric Band Surgery?

The gastric band surgery is a procedure during which a silicone band is tied around the upper part of the stomach. This causes the available space in the stomach to get reduced. The repercussion of the space reduction is consumption of a lesser quantity of food. This way the risk of overeating is eliminated as a shortened stomach can hold less food. It makes you feel satiated well before finishing the meal and aids in weight loss.

To carry this laparoscopic procedure out, the person is put under general anesthesia. Around three to five-minute cuts are made on the abdomen. Through these incisions, a tube attached to a camera and other surgical instruments are inserted into the abdomen. Then the gastric band is applied to the stomach and fixed with stitches.

What is the Recovery Time of the Procedure?

Recovery time after a gastric band surgery is different for every individual. Non-strenuous daily activities can be resumed, one week after the gastric band surgery. Complete return to normal daily lifestyle comprising of strenuous and non-strenuous activities can be made six months following surgery.

What are the Risks of Gastric Band Surgery?

Since it is a surgical procedure, the risks and complications are similar to any general surgical procedure. However, there are some risks which are exclusively associated with the procedure.

General surgical risks

-As with every surgery, the risk of hemorrhage (bleeding) and infection is the same for the gastric band surgery.

-Infection can also be a risk if proper sanitary and hygiene measures are not maintained during and after the procedure.

-Blood clots in the legs and lungs are two complications which are associated with prolonged immobility owing to surgical recovery.

Risks exclusive to gastric banding

-Some people might be required to undergo another operation following their gastric band surgery. This may be when the band gets infected, replaced or removed. The gastric band may also tear apart causing spillage of gastric contents.

-Gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition where the food ingested returns back to the throat and cause discomfort. People undergoing gastric band surgery may experience GERD causing nausea, vomiting and burning in the chest.

-People with gastric band installed, are at an increased risk for developing gallstones.
