Let’s face it – whether you agree to have the surgical procedure, or the hypnotherapy alternative, Gastric Band is a serious decision. For a start, Gastric Band Hypnosis is expensive, and the other requires surgery.
What is my opinion of Gastric Band Hypnosis? It’s a SCAM! Do you sense any ambiguity there? The surgical variety is no better. Both are based upon the point I made in a previous post, about our overwhelming desire to eliminate the symptoms – to kill the messenger – rather than deal with the actual cause of the problem.
The thinking behind Gastric Band assumes that, by limiting the amount of food a person can accommodate, they will then lose weight. So far, so good. The surgical version makes this happen on a physical level, whilst Gastric Band Hypnosis seeks to convince the person’s subconscious mind that the surgical procedure has actually taken place.
The lengths some, so-called, hypnotherapists go to – having surgical spirit wafting in the air of their consulting room, or playing sounds of an operating theatre in the background, are laughable. Now, call me simple but, I figure, if you’ve had a real surgical procedure carried out on your body, you’d know. You would also know, full well, if you hadn’t.
If you overeat, the chances are you are on a diet, or have been on one, or dozens. This is probably the worst thing you can do. The fact is that, in cases of overeating, the food is not the problem. You might want to read that again. The food is NOT the problem. So, limiting the amount of food a person can consume, prevents the actual problem from being solved – usually in 3 sessions of Advanced Hypnotherapy. More on this in a later post, or you can check out the page on this site.
If the food is not the problem, then any ‘Hypnotherapist’ offering Gastric Band Hypnosis is either a scam artist – taking your money for some dubious procedure – or they don’t really understand how the mind works, in which case, they should find another means of employment.
If you’ve had Gastric Band Hypnosis, please let me know how you got on and how things are progressing.
