How Does Hypnotherapy Work for Weight Loss?

Posted: Saturday, August 25, 2012

Both appetite and cravings are controlled by the brain. Although we 'feel' these sensations in the body, they are triggered by the Subconscious mind. Weight loss drugs try to interfere with the pathways of these hunger signals, but drugs are dangerous and have side effects. Hypnotherapy is the only way to get detailed messages to the Subconscious mind quickly and effectively, so we can get appetite reduced naturally and safely. We can also ask for certain cravings to be shut down, or transferred from, say, chocolate to something healthier like cerial or fruit.

When you go on a diet, you attempt to resist the urge to eat the fattening foods using willpower, which is hard to sustain over time. In hypnotherapy, we simply change what you feel like eating, and reduce the overall appetite. If that sounds much easier and more fun, that's because it is!

The Hypno-Gastric Band

The Hypno Gastric Band gets a lot of press, but that is because the real gastric band gets a lot of press. Some people get so desperate to lose weight that they will turn to surgery or at least think about it, and so the "Hypno-Gastric Band" cashes in on this, as it appears to work like a gastric band but without the risk of surgery. The result of this is that it usually costs five or six times the usual cost of hypnosis for weight loss, and yet the results are exactly the same!

Think about it. With the Hypno Gastric band, there IS NO gastric band. The effects are entirely the result of the HYPNO part, in other words hypnotherapy. If that can produce dramatic weight loss without the need for a real gastric band - and it certainly can - then the addition of the 'gastric band' part is pure marketing which will cost you hundreds more to have than the hypnotherapy for weight loss we've been doing for decades, which gets exactly the same results. Both are really just hypnotherapy, there is no gastric band involved!  more

So if you're keen to pay extra for hypnotherapy weight loss which mentions a gastric band but doesn't really involve one, you'll have to go elsewhere for that because I don't like to mislead people!  But if you just want to lose weight quickly, change your eating (or drinking) habits, get fitter and healthier and improve your enjoyment of life, call me (Chris) on 0161-474-8120 or call/text 07748 838 644 any day, any time.
