In the United States today, overweight and obesity have become a serious problem. Excess weight in our abdomen can cause back strain, which is a major cause of work absenteeism and medical costs. Breathing difficulties, depression, and other medical conditions can all be related to too much body weight. Too much weight has a distinct negative effect on quality of life!
And the diet industry in America is a huge, multi billion-dollar enterprise. All too often, people will go on diets, lose some weight, perhaps even a lot of weight, but once the diet ends, the weight returns, sometimes even more than was originally lost. And this puts even more stress on our circulatory system, our backs and our overall health.
So, how do we end this cycle of weight loss and weight regain? How can we insure that weight, once off, stays off? After all, other harmful and destructive habits, like smoking for example, once ended are not needed to survive. One can live a perfectly normal and healthy life without ever touching another cigarette. Not so with food.
One of the most exciting programs I have seen in many years is the HypnoBand method of weight loss. This is a remarkable and very successful method of losing and maintaining weight!It was featured on the Dr. Oz program on February 8, 2012!
Many people are familiar with or at least have heard of gastric band surgery, also called lap band surgery. In this procedure a surgeon will place the individual under anesthesia, than surgically place a band around the top of the stomach. This band will constrict the stomach, and make it smaller. A smaller stomach means less food intake leading to weight loss .
There are disadvantages to this method, though. It is surgery, with anesthesia which always poses a risk,even if small. It is expensive, often $12-15,000 or more, and may not be covered by insurance. And, worst of all, it may not work!
The HypnoBand uses the same idea. Except, and this is a BIG difference, we do not do any surgery at all! The entire procedure is done in hypnosis. During this process, the sub-conscious mind is convinced that it has had the surgery. And, as a result, the person will eat less. And lose weight!! All the advantages of the surgical approach, but with NO post operative discomfort and at a fraction of the cost! Continue reading and you will see why this method will address the two components of losing weight.
There are two components to succeeding at losing weight, and keeping it off. First, we must adjust our eating habits. We must look at food not as a substitute for love, relationships, sex or any other factor that may be missing in our lives. Food is fuel. It can be enjoyed and savored but it is necessary to eat properly to enable our bodies to have adequate energy to function at their best. In any weight modification plan, it is essential that proper nutrition be addressed and the right type of diet be planned.
The second component is a mental and emotional adjustment. Earlier, I stated that food is not a substitute for the emotions or things we may be missing. But, how do we accomplish this?
As stated before, by using the HypnoBand method of weight loss, the sub-conscious mind is convinced that there is a band around the stomach, making it smaller. But it doesn't end there. At the same time, suggestions are given, both in and out of hypnosis, to help change the way food is thought of. To help change the response to the "trigger points" that cause people to eat the wrong food at the wrong time. To help substitute more positive methods of stress management that will lead to losing weight. And keeping it off!
Hypnosis is an excellent tool to help with the goal of losing weight. Combined with proper nutritional guidance in choosing the right foods, foods that are healthy and nutritious, proper portion control and the best times to eat, it can be an excellent method of managing one’s weight and improving one’s lifestyle.
Hypnosis is a powerful tool to help individuals improve their quality of life.
