Weight loss with Gastric Band Hypnotherapy

Gastric Band Hypnotherapy helps you to stop habitual over-eating behaviour which has led to weight gain, as well as resolve the unconscious reasons for long term over-eating. We are all born with the instinct to eat when we are hungry and stop when we are satisfied which means that our energy and nutritional needs are met, while maintaining a healthy weight. However, many of us lose touch with that instinct during childhood when we were encouraged to ignore our body’s signals and eat everything on the plate, as well as being consoled or rewarded with food even though we aren’t hungry. In addition, “going on a diet” creates a negative pattern of deprivation thinking and then over-eating behaviour; sugar rich snack foods can lead to sugar addiction and over-eating; and the widely held but erroneous belief that we should be eating every few hours to avoid getting hungry means that we lose touch with the instincts that are natural to us and that are designed to ensure we are a healthy weight.

Gastric band hypnotherapy uses both hypnotherapy and neuro linguistic programming (NLP) techniques to convince individuals that they have had a gastric band fitted. Actual ‘gastric band’ surgery involves surgically restricting the stomach’s capacity. This reduced stomach capacity means that the feeling of fullness becomes apparent much more quickly and the amount of food consumed is therefore reduced. Gastric band hypnotherapy can lead to all of the benefits of gastric band surgery but without the fears, risks, cost and side effects of going through the actual surgical procedure.

The gastric band hypnotherapy involves deep relaxation during which you will be guided through the entire operation in your imagination, step by step from administration of the anaesthetic, to the first incision to the closing of the incision. Soon afterwards you should feel the sensation of fullness after just a few mouthfuls which means you will feel less hungry, less often and eat less when you do eat.

The therapy involves a number of different techniques such as positive suggestion, visualisation and NLP. At the Curative Hypnotherapy Clinic we will also use analytical hypnotherapy to identify and resolve the unconscious root cause of the over-eating that has led to the weight gain so that you can achieve and maintain a healthy weight for the rest of your life.

Here at the Curative Hypnotherapy Clinic we tailor each session to suit an individual’s requirements. Our Gastric Band Hypnotherapy alongside our Analytical Hypnotherapy techniques mean that you no longer need to count calories because you will only want to eat the amount of food that your body requires in order to be a healthy weight.

Being over-weight is a result of consuming more calories than your body needs in terms of the energy that it uses. In most cases, eating even though you are not hungry and continuing to eat even when you are already satisfied is the main cause of weight gain. In addition, eating too much of those foods that are calorie dense, such as food and drinks that are high in sugar also contribute to weight gain.

You are usually over-eating when:

  • You don’t chew your food thoroughly and therefore eat quickly. As a result you don’t notice your body’s signals telling you that you have eaten enough food and the taste buds in your mouth have not been fully satisfied which leads to wanting “something nice” after finishing a meal
  • You deliberately ignore the signal that you are satisfied and continue eating
  • You eat when you are not truly hungry but bored or stressed or feel an “need” to eat; very often this means snack food between your meals

Your past experiences have created your current relationship with your body’s needs and the food that you consume. Here at the Curative Hypnotherapy Clinic we know that Gastric Band Hypnotherapy needs to be accompanied by our Analytical Hypnotherapy techniques in order to identify and permanently resolve the root cause of the over- eating. What we have discovered from our work over the years is that if this root cause is merely suppressed rather than treated directly then the treatment will only be effective in the short term and any improvement will break down in the longer term, taking you back to square one.The types of over-eating that we address include: emotional over-eating eating, boredom eating, habitual over-eating responses, over-eating because of low self-esteem and low self-confidence, food cravings and the negative psychological effects of dieting.

As a result of our hypnotherapy techniques you will develop a much healthier relationship with your body’s needs and food. You will be in touch with the instincts that you were born with; to eat when you are truly hungry (and not just bored or stressed or craving a perceived “bad” food) and stop when you are satisfied. As a result you will lose weight naturally and easily until you find that ideal naturally healthy weight for you while still enjoying those foods you want to eat.
