These days, the obesity problem is rarely out of the news. Being overweight is linked to a number of health risks.
Hazards to being obese
There a numerous health problems linked to being obese including:
- Type 2 diabetes
- High blood pressure
- Higher risk of heart disease
- Increased risk of some cancers such as breast and bowel
- Higher risk of having a stroke
- Sleep Apnea
It is also related to psychological issues with depression, self-esteem and lack of confidence.
There are hundreds of diets on the market so decided how to go about losing weight can be difficult.
Virtual gastric band hypnotherapy was developed to help people lose and keep of large amounts of weight. It is aimed mainly at the clinically obese – those who have a BMI of over 30.

The Hypno-Band weight loss system was developed as a way of optimising the latest weight loss ideas and virtual band hypnotherapy in a simple but truly effective way.
There are many reasons people become overweight. But the reason they are overweight is the same – eating too much and not doing enough exercise. This is the simple bit. The reasons why they overeat differ, although they are mainly down to emotional and psychological issues. The majority of people eat to provide comfort or to relieve stress.
Many conventional diets do not work in the long term. They encourage you to dramatically change your eating habits in a way that is rarely sustainable. You may lose weight in the short term but there is a good chance you will put it back on later when you revert back to your old eating pattern. This is because most diets only work on the physical reason for weight gain – the overeating – but not on the psychological and emotional reasons for overeating.
There is a link between emotions and overeating. Our brain tells us when we have eaten our fill. But when we eat emotionally the body can override those signals or we can choose to ignore them. This then becomes ‘normal’ and as we no longer recognise when we are full we constantly overeat leading to weight gain. Hypnosis and the Hypno-Band treatment work with your subconscious to help you regain your natural weight control mechanisms.
How does the Hypno-Band work?
The Hypno-Band works by using suggestion, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and visualisation to help clients make behavioural changes. These changes make it possible for you to lose weight and also, to keep that weight off.
In a nutshell, the Hypno-Band treatment does this by convincing the client that have had gastric band surgery and so are only able to eat smaller portions and so will get full quicker.
Who is eligible
Anyone over 18 who is classed as clinically obese. You will not be suitable for this type of weight loss if you have any of the following:
- Over or underactive thyroid
- Genetic or physiological reasons for weight gain
- Insulin dependency
- IBS or other gastric conditions
If you have any of the above conditions, I may be able to help you to lose weight by another method. Take a look at my web page on Losing Weight with Hypnotherapy in Chesterfield.
What is involved
The treatment takes a series of sessions, usually five. The first session involving an assessment of whether the client is suitable for the Hypno-Band treatment. Then a medical history is taken and the client will complete a questionnaire which will enable the therapist to find out why the client overeats. Further sessions will introduced them to the virtual gastric band. Then prep them for the ‘surgery’ session. Then the therapist will take the client through the gastric band surgery from pre-med to recovery. A later session reinforces the previous session and makes any adjustments necessary to ensure the band is working optimally for the client.
The client will be give homework to do and provided with a CD or mp3 files to help them keep on track throughout the course of treatment.
The Hypno-Band has been used to successfully treat hundreds of clients and may be able to do the same for you.
Like any other form of therapy, the virtual gastric band is not a ‘magic fix’. It takes time and dedication. You must be fully committed to making significant life changes in order for it to be successful.
