Why Dieting Doesn’t Work
Most of my clients can tell me all about nutritional values and the calories in every food, they are experts in the field of dieting. Why, why, then are they overweight? It has been scientifically proven that diets do not work. In fact they set up a conflict in the mind and a back lash of obsessive thoughts about food and what you are not ‘supposed’ to eat, mixed in with a large helping of guilt.
What is needed is a release from the dieting mentality and to develop a natural attitude to food over a longterm change.
Virtual Gastric Band
The Virtual Gastric Band is a non-surgical technique using the power of hypnosis to train your mind and body to accept less food. The clinical hypnotherapy works by the brain telling your stomach that it is full and there is no need for any more food. This is of course the principle behind the actual surgical procedure but the Virtual Gastric Band carries with it no risk, no on- going medical treatment and the hypnotherapy can be done effectively, efficiently and privately and without hospital waiting lists.

Hypnosis Gastric Band Research
I have developed a good relationship with many doctors in my area who are both supportive and open to hypnotherapy as a positive option for treatments. I therefore instigated a strictly monitored clinical trial together with a local doctor at their surgery with 3 clients on an individual basis.
The treatments were over a period of 4 weeks, with the clients having appointments with the doctor and nurse, where they were weighed and blood pressure taken together with blood tests. Results showed a steady weight loss over the 4 week period. With clients feeling better within themselves. More confident and positive. After the fourth hypnotherapy session the clients were monitored every 3 months through the doctor for a period of one year. The long term effects were, a positive change in attitude to food, higher energy levels, reduction in blood pressure, feeling more confident, improved sleep. One client came off anti-depressants under the doctor’s supervision. The overall weight loss over the one year period was two clients losing 5st each, and the other 3st 12lb.
Having lived in Germany for 15 years, I worked in German with hypnotherapy, where hypnotherapy is considered part of mainstream medicine. My own GP in Germany is a hypnotherapist, so it is encouraging to have the support here from the medical profession.
Obviously each person has their personal reasons for being overweight and why they have overridden natures own natural signals of feeling satisfied. Through working with hypnotherapy we are able to deal with emotional triggers which are maybe contributing towards negative eating habits. The Virtual Gastric Band programme supports increased self-esteem and confidence and offers tools to help take responsibility in taking back control of your life.
As you balance internally, you transform externally developing a natural attitude to food and freeing yourself of a dieting mentality and a release from calorie counting prison.
