Gastric Band Hypnotherapy - Tamborine Mountain

Gastric Band

As obesity rates around the world soar, demand for gastric band surgery has never been higher. The success stories of celebrities such as comedian Mickey Robins, movie star Randy Jackson and the infamous Sharon Osborne have encouraged thousands to follow in their footsteps.

The operation involves placing a band around the top region of the stomach. The band creates a small pouch at the top of the stomach that can hold approximately ½ of a cup of food rather than the average six cups.

When this pouch is full it sends a message to the brain that the entire stomach is full. Therefore the patient is hungry less often, feels full more quickly and for longer periods of time, eating smaller portions and loses weight.

The fitting of a surgical Gastric Band results in most patients achieving a steady ongoing weight loss until they reach their target weight loss, as agreed with their surgeon. The success rate for this surgery is 70%.

The gastric band program is intended for people who have 10’s of kilos rather than just a few kilos to lose. The gastric band is generally reserved for people with a body mass index of 30 or over. Anyone who is overweight by more than 10 kilos may want to consider the hypnotic gastric band program at a fraction of the cost of actual gastric band surgery.

Whether you have an aversion to surgery, an allergy to anaesthetic drugs or you just don’t like hospitals, a gastric band hypnotherapy program provides an alternative that you should consider.

The success rate of the gastric band hypnotherapy is 80%. Results show that with surgery 50% of patients suffer nausea after surgery, 35% reflux, 25% slippage of the band, 15% an obstruction or blockage, many suffer constipation, diarrhoea and difficulty swallowing. None of these are present with gastric band hypnotherapy.

Body Mass Index

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a simple index of weight-for-height created by the World Health Organisation (WHO), it is commonly used to classify underweight, overweight and obesity in adults. It is defined as the weight in kilograms divided by the square of the height in metres (kg/m2).

For example, an adult who weighs 70kg and whose height is 1.75m will have a BMI of 22.9.

BMI = 70 kg / (1.75 m2) = 70 / 3.06 = 22.9

AIM Herbal Fibre Blend® a powerful Colon cleanser.

If you have ever cut open a water pipe in an old house you would see a lining of silt within the water pipe. For most people our own digestive system has a similar lining preventing it from properly digesting the full nutritional value of the foods that we eat. We eat more and more in an attempt to get the nutrition that our body needs while at the same time storing more and more fatty carbohydrates.

Eating high-fibre foods is considered a healthy weight loss choice for most people because high-fibre foods help to clean out the lining in our system, but few of us consume the necessary fibre to cleanse the digestive system fully. AIM Herbal Fiberblend® is a unique and powerful combination of natural cleansing herbs and psyllium to sweep the digestive system clean of toxins and food debris.

• Detoxifies, removes toxins from the body;
