Virtual Gastric Band
The Virtual Gastric band is a non-surgical technique. This program is about retraining your mind to eat smaller amounts of food. When we diet we cut out of all the foods that we love and then become resentful that we are depriving ourselves of these simple pleasures, diets usually involve counting calories or points, this then leads you to constantly think about your next meal and you start to live to eat rather than eat to live. With the help of hypnotherapy you will not feel deprived, miserable or hungry and, whereas diets are short term, this program can give you a long term solution to your weight problems
The Virtual Gastric Band was pioneered by Sheila Granger who started by taking on 25 volunteers of different shapes, sizes, age ranges and gender and saw them in a group setting. Sheila was expecting 40% success rate but was astounded to record that they lost 14 stones between them and all but one reported a change in their eating habits.
It is hoped that medical practitioners will soon take on this Programme so that more people can benefit via the NHS
