How Does Virtual Gastric Band Hypnosis Work?
The Virtual Gastric Band is a non-surgical technique which uses the power of hypnosis to retrain the person to be satisfied with smaller portions of food. Clinical hypnotherapy convinces the mind that the stomach is full after a smaller amount and there is no desire to eat more. A Virtual Gastric Band is like 'flicking a switch in the brain.' It changes a person's attitude towards food and helps them regain control over cravings and bad habits. Feedback shows increased willpower and no need for the person to deprive themself of the foods they enjoy. Weight is lost naturally and consistently without dieting.
This system is very safe and delivers predictable results that carry ZERO risk. Whether it's Rachelle wanting to lose 5-10kg or Frank wanting to lose 50kg this system is suitable for almost everyone.
The most important difference about the Virtual Gastric Band in comparison to the actual gastric band (also known as lap band) is that the virtual version deals with the issues in a person's mind and their relationship with food. Having a foreign body inside their stomach simply does not deal with the psychological factors. A bariatric surgery patient has to eat a pureed diet for the first few weeks and can still overeat causing the band to burst. With the Virtual Gastric Band if they find they are eating too much it can be tightened under hypnotherapy. There is no invasive surgery and they are treating the psychological problems not just the physical.
