OBESITY IN THE UK

Unfortunately, obesity is on the rise in the England. In a 2017 survey, it found 28.7% of adults in England are obese and a further 35.6% are overweight. This makes a total of 64.3% who are either overweight or obese. (Source: Obesity Statistics, Briefing Paper Number 3336, August 2019).

Obesity is now becoming a common issue because modern living involves eating excessive amounts of cheap high-calorie food and spending a lot of time sitting down at desks, playing computer games, sitting on sofas or in cars. There is, however, certain underlying health conditions that can occasionally contribute to weight gain, such as an underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism).

HYPNOTIC GASTRIC BAND

Like all surgical procedures gastric band surgery is not without risk. The surgical option – gastric band only has a 70% success rate. Whereas, hypnosis has an 80% success rate because it uses a holistic approach that assesses the core issue which has caused the overeating in the first place. Moreover, there are no risk of infections or surgical complications with Hypnotic Gastric Band; only pure and simple weight loss.

There are a number of complications that can occur during or immediately after surgery such as:

  • Infection – (infects around 1 in 20 people)

  • Blood clots in the legs (deep vein thrombosis) or lungs (pulmonary embolism) – this affects around 1 in 100 people

  • Internal bleeding – this affects around 1 in 100 people

  • Excess skin

Whilst weight loss surgery can successfully remove the fat in the body, it cannot instruct the skin to shrink with it. Therefore, if a patient has been obese for many years, they may be left with excess folds and rolls of skin, particularly around the breasts, tummy, hips and limbs. These folds usually become apparent 12-18 months after surgery, and they are difficult to keep clean. They are also vulnerable to developing rashes, ulcers, back strain, balance issues and infections. Skin removal treatments can cost thousands of pounds, not the sort of treatment many people can afford. Since Hypnotic Gastric Band changes how the person perceives their food it also reconditions their dietary intake. Food rich in cholesterol soon becomes revolting and so the levels lower naturally. The Hypnotic Gastric Band can help you to eat healthier food rather than change your anatomy which means that the physiology of the body improves rather than being compromised.

Although many people report an improvement in their quality of life when undergoing weight loss surgery there can be several psychosocial effects that may also be related to rapid weight loss. Some people have revealed that relationship issues have developed as their partner begins to feel anxious or jealous about their weight loss. In addition, social occasions revolving around food such as family meals or Christmas can become awkward, as it is common for people to feel conscious about the reduced capacity to eat. It is not uncommon to experience feelings of depression around 2 years after the surgery. The reason is because the issues that existed whilst the person was obese still remain after their weight loss, for example work stress, relationship difficulties or money worries. This can be difficult to accept if they pinned all the blame because they of their obesity. So, part of the Hypnotic Gastric Band treatment addresses why you overeat. This is an important part of yourself discovery and once this has been unlocked, we can address the point before it hits crisis point. Hypnosis can also offer solutions to insecure partners or other ‘fall out’ problems which surgery in unable to address.

HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?

Hypnotherapy is an agreement between you and the therapist. The therapist is the guide with the tools to help you overcome your eating habits. The Hypnotic Gastric band relies on your ability to visualise, so if you have difficulties using your imagination this may not work for you, but if you have a creative mind that can visualise and a willingness to take on all the positive suggestions on board then yes, then the hypnotic gastric band will work for you really well. So, in answer to the question it really depends on you. Furthermore, part of the agreement between you and the therapist is that you must be 100% committed to losing weight and take control of your own success as hypnotherapy is not a magic wand. If you want to succeed, then I will do my best to support you on your weight loss journey.
