Hypno-Band Weight Loss

A Procedure for Virtual Gastric Band Surgery in Hypnosis

The “Hypno-Band” weight loss system is a proven way to reduce weight through hypnotherapy. It is a remarkably effective and safe procedure, at a fraction of the cost of real surgery. Unlike a surgical procedure with all the risks associated with an operation and anesthesia, the risk of infection,

and the possibility of something going wrong, the “Hypno-Band” procedure is completely harmless to you, as it is carried out only in your unconscious mind.

You may know that originally I came from England, so I have contacts with hypnotherapy practices all over Britain. I read earlier this year about a hypnotist in northern England who had pioneered a procedure for virtual Bariatric surgery with a high success rate. I decided to learn it and offer it through my practice. I understood first hand exactly what the real surgery involved, as 21 years ago I had a similar procedure myself. I had multiple stomach ulcers and the surgeon performed what was effectively gastric bypass surgery. It was many months before I was able to get fully back to work, and I can tell you that this should only be a procedure of last resort.

There are three basic surgeries available today for those with a Body Mass Index of 30 or more.

  • Adjustable Gastric band,
  • Gastric Bypass, and
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy.

The Adjustable Gastric Band surgery, also known as “Lap Band” surgery, is the least intrusive of them, and it can be removed later if you don’t like it. The procedure is laparoscopic, so it is the least intrusive, with five small incisions, the largest being just over an inch and the remaining are about one centimeter long. A small television camera is inserted showing the patient’s organs on a screen, and the surgeon carries out the operation using instruments inside the patient which he controls remotely. A plastic band is placed around the top of the stomach designed to restrict the amount of food the stomach can hold. You effectively have a new stomach the size of a golf ball. However, the digestive system works normally as food trickles into the rest of the stomach and digestive juices break the food down in the usual way.

The band has a tube that can be filled with saline from a port implanted under the skin on the lower belly, so the hole allowing food to filter into the digestive system can be further reduced, or the saline can be taken out, allowing a larger intake. The new stomach fills rapidly and sends messages to the central nervous system saying you are full and don’t need any more food.

The effect of giving the surgery in the hypnotic state is dramatic. This procedure is vividly conveyed to the Hypno-Band client who experiences it as if it were a physical surgery. What happens is that your unconscious mind is being constantly reminded that the stomach is now the size of a golf ball and you simply cannot eat in the style that you did before. It is as if the gastric band is a permanent obstructive feature of your anatomy, and all the neuro- physical effects going on in your mind and body are the same as if you had had the actual surgery. After the procedure, I have seen clients of mine lose as much as eleven pounds in ten days and continue to reduce weight until they reach their goal.
