A VIRTUAL GASTRIC BAND PROTOCOL
WEIGHT LOSS SYSTEM™
New weight loss system Hypno-Band could change your life forever. Imagine having the results usually achieved by having a surgical Gastric Band fitted but not having to go through surgery, and spending thousands of pounds! Gastric Band surgery is not for everyone. Usually the surgery is only carried out on people classified as "obese" and with a high Body Mass Index (BMI) usually over 40. A surgical Gastric Band works by reducing the size of the stomach and therefore you eat smaller portions and feel full.
Through this method is is possible to lose weight easily. The surgical method does have drawbacks however. It is very costly, typically costing £4000 to £6000 (correct at 2008/9 prices) and of course you will need to go through a surgical procedure.What if you could have all the benefits of a surgical Gastric Band, without the surgery and cost? Well now you can! By using the Hypno-Band hypnotherapy system we create a state of mind where you will believe you actually have a Gastric Band fitted! You will eat smaller portions and feel full.
The Hypno-Band system is a long term solution to your weight problems.How does it work?Over four sessions we take you through the process of having a gastric band fitted, only in your mind. By using suggestion and visualization your mind will be convinced that your stomach has become smaller and that you need less food. By eating less and less often you will begin to lose weight.
The process uses hypnotherapy and cognitive behavioural techniques to help you achieve your ideal weight - and stay there!Each session in the Hypno-Band system lasts for one hour and before beginning the process a full assessment will be carried out.The Hypno-Band TM is the original complete Gastric Band Hypnotherapy system in the UK,Ireland,Australia and Canada. Beware of imitations! Note: the Hypno-Band is not in any way associated with Elite Clinics or Gastric Mind Band
What do you get for your money?
The HYPNO-BAND system comprises of four, one hour sessions plus a CD recording which you use for reinforcement. A full dietary and medical history will be taken and an initial assessment done during the first session. Also in the first session you will be introduced to hypnosis and experience the fantastic feelings of relaxation and calmness which results from being hypnotized. We will also begin your journey to losing weight. In the second session you will encounter the HYPNO-BAND and we will begin the process of having the virtual gastric band fitted. In the third session the HYPNO-BAND virtual gastric band will be fitted and adjusted. In the fourth and final session the process will be reinforced and you will learn a different way of eating. Following the four sessions you should use your CD to back-up and reinforce the work you have done.
Is it guaranteed?
Like any medical or therapy procedure there can be no definite guarantees. Even a surgeon cannot guarantee that an actual gastric band will work. However, the virtual gastric band has been proven to be effective in aiding significant weight loss. It should be noted that it is YOU that holds the key to losing weight. No system will work if you are not 100% committed. The mind is a very powerful instrument and by using the HYPNO-BAND system you will have the tools and power to change your eating habits. The only way to lose significant amounts of weight is to eat less! The HYPNO-BAND system helps you to change behavior and life-style which in turn provides you with the ability to lose weight and stay that way!
