What is a virtual gastric band?
A virtual gastric band is a procedure used by a professional hypnotherapist to suggest to the subconscious mind that you have actually had a gastric band fitted around your stomach. Gastric band hypnotherapy guides you through virtual preparation for surgery, virtual surgery, and a healthy post-op lifestyle, all in the comfort of your own mind.
The process does not involve surgery or medication and is completely safe. Many people who have had the virtual procedure, report feeling full much quicker when eating, as if they had undergone real surgery.
What is actual gastric band surgery?
This surgery is considered a last resort for people who are very obese, more than 45 kilograms over their ideal body weight, and who are unable to successfully shed any of the weight. Gastric band surgery entails fitting a band around the upper part of the stomach, which limits the amount of food a person is able to eat. You feel full more quickly and eat less, which then helps you to lose weight.
This is a surgical procedure, and comes with potential risks and complications, which may include:
· Infection after surgery.
· Dangerous blood clots in legs or the lungs.
· Possible internal bleeding.
· Nausea and reflux problems.
How does gastric band hypnosis work?
Surgery is a big step for anyone to take, and if you are very overweight, your risks of complications are very high. There are no risks with gastric band hypnosis. The aim is that on a subconscious level, you will accept that you have physically had the procedure, and that your stomach has reduced in size.
Using tried and tested techniques, the hypnotherapist will put you into a state of hypnosis. You will be fully aware of what is going on around you. You will not be asleep or unconscious in any way, and you cannot be made to anything you do not want to do.
At this relaxed stage, your subconscious mind will be open to suggestions the therapist will make regarding your weight loss aims, such as embracing a healthy lifestyle, good eating habits, banishing negative thoughts about losing weight, and restoring confidence in yourself.
The hypnotherapist will next carry out the most important part of the virtual gastric band treatment. Strong suggestions will be made to convince you at a subconscious level that you have indeed had an operation to insert a gastric band.
Will the virtual gastric band work for me?
The mind is very powerful. On a conscious level you will know that you did not have surgery, but if your subconscious mind accepts the suggestion that you had a physical gastric band fitted, and also accepts the suggestions of pre-op preparation, and post-op care, then there is every chance it will work for you.
Gastric band hypnosis is a serious commitment. The more you treat it as real gastric band surgery, the more effective it will be. You will still have free will and the ability to make unhealthy choices.
True healthy living comes from the choices you make every day, to develop healthy eating habits, and make positive lifestyle changes.
Getting the best out of the process.
What you get out of the virtual gastric band hypnotherapy treatment, depends on how much you believe in the process, and in the abilities of your therapist.
Losing weight is very important to the obese, and the virtual gastric band process offers real hope without the dangers of surgery. However to fully succeed and move forward, it will require total commitment to permanent lifestyle changes.
