Obesity is rapidly increasing in Canada and other countries. Many people have opted for gastric band surgery to reduce the size of their stomach. However, over 80% of the surgeries have minor or major complications. This can include slippage of the band, repeating the operation, bleeding, infection and more.
Type 2 diabetes accounts for 90% of all people with diabetes. Most people who have type 2 diabetes need lifestyle changes. With type 2 diabetes, glucose stays in the blood causing high sugar levels, instead of being taken up into the cells. The body has become resistant to the effects of the hormone insulin. The greater the weight, the more likely the body is resistant to the effects of insulin.
Patients who have had gastric band surgery have been known to defeat the purpose of the surgery by having more frequent small meals all day long, turning their food into a liquid, or often drinking high calorie soft drinks or alcohol. Healthy weight loss requires a lifestyle change.
Emotional problems may also need to be addressed. What is the motivational reason or reasons why people want to overeat or eat unhealthy foods? Is food a reward? Does the person now feel guilty about leaving food on their plate, because they were always told as a child to “think of the starving children”? Is the cause boredom? Is the excess weight a protection against “stepping out” on a partner? Is the excess weight replacing a baby that could not be conceived? Is the excess weight a subconscious solution to a fear of being raped again? New methods of coping with life stresses can help defeat excess eating, as well as hundreds of other emotional or behavioral problems.
Causes of excess weight can be discovered inside the subconscious mind and removed by professional hypnotists. This helps the client to be free of the past and to enjoy a healthier lifestyle.
Hypnotists have had great success with a “virtual” gastric band. While the people are hypnotized, they experience an imaginary gastric band surgery. They are told that their stomach has been reduced to the size of a golf ball. In this way, they feel satisfied with small portions. Many new attitudes and a new lifestyle are locked into the subconscious mind such as: chewing food slowly, disliking fatty or sweet foods, enjoying body movement, and more. This hypnosis virtual gastric band system has had such great success that it is now practiced worldwide by hypnotists.
