The Virtual Gastric Band is a non surgical technique which uses the influence of hypnosis to retrain you to be contented and satisfied with smaller portions of food. It changes how you think about food leading to safe, predictable results. The clinical hypnotherapy convinces the brain that the stomach is full after a certain level of food intake and that there is no need to eat more. This allows your body and digestion to get into a healthy rhythm. You no longer eat unless you are hungry, becoming more in tune to the promptings of your stomach rather than your head.
We know that diets are a short term solution and do not work over a long period of time. The Virtual Gastric Band allows you to eat what you want, but in a reduced, healthy amount, enabling you to establish a natural sense of control around food in all situations, home, restaurants, parties and the buffet table! Because it is not a diet, you are not going to feel that dreaded deprived or hungry feeling, these are the issues that cause all those fad diets to fail. Actually, diets communicate deprivation and starvation to the subconscious mind, so with all the conscious willpower in the world, if your subconscious is not in agreement, it will sabotage your best efforts every time. The Virtual Gastric Band effectively eliminates these issues and you are left with a long term solution to your weight problems.
The Virtual Gastric Band can be undertaken privately and quickly, without the lengthy stay in hospital. Of course there is no costly surgery, no risk and no on-going medical treatment. This procedure is so safe and effective that clinical trials have been conducted to authenticate its effectiveness.
If you want exceptional results, if you want to feel really good about yourself and have a completely new relationship with food then the Virtual Gastric Band is the ideal solution.
A gastric band is a hollow silicone ring that is placed around the upper part of the stomach and filled with saline.
A virtual gastric band is 'suggested' as exactly the same thing where under hypnosis the subconscious mind is convinced and accepts the suggestion that a gastric band operation has taken place.The sub conscious mind does know the difference between what is real and what is not.
A gastric band works by restricting the stomach, dividing it into a small pouch which can only hold around half a cupful of food above the stomach area below. When this pouch is full, it sends a message to your brain that you are completely full and cannot eat any more. If you were to try to eat any more the chances are that you would feel or actually be sick.
There’s a good chance you’ve read about Virtual Gastric Band hypnosis in the media.
Perhaps a friend has a new bounce in her step having dropped several dress sizes. Or maybe a colleague is enjoying the relief of being medication-free because of it.
All these good news stories might have got you wondering,
“is the virtual gastric band right for me?”
True, the VGB is a weight loss program that’s helping a lot of people shift a lot of weight with apparent ease.
And if you’ve tried other weight loss programs – even other hypnosis programs – then it’s worth your time to consider the VGB, as it’s different in many key respects.
You expect to succeed and are happy seeing steady weight loss in the long term. You love that it’s a lifestyle change because you’re tired of the “10lbs in 10 days rah-rah”.
– You happily integrate the eight golden guidelines of the programme into your everyday choices and lifestyle. You recognise that discipline can be very, very freeing.
– You take 100% ownership for your own weight loss journey. When things don’t go to plan, you look at what you could do differently next time, and you learn,
rather than pointing the finger.
I trust this information has provided you with some useful distinctions. And I hope you see yourself in the group for whom the VGB can provide life-changing results.
If you’ve recognized “Yes, I’m ready, reeeeally ready to create change,” then pop on over here, drop me a line and we’ll get you on the wait-list, or call me at 604 202 7938
If instead it’s helped you realise “I’m not ready yet,” that’s OK too. Good luck and thank you for reading.
There is a specific individual profile for whom the VGB is most likely to work. These are the people who’re open to lifestyle change and committed to achieving their health goals.
These changes include eating more nourishing food, drinking more water and daily walking. While the VGB doesn’t advocate any specific food plan, you’ll see best results if the smaller portions you eat include predominately fresh, nourishing foods.
From the lifestyle change aspect, you might argue that the VGB is no different from other weight loss programmes that require you to make day-to-day lifestyle changes.
But the VGB provides you an anchor point missing from other programmes. Psychologically your stomach is smaller – leading to a smaller you. Everything you receive in the three sessions after the “gastric band” is “installed” supports the psychological impact of having the band. CONTINUE
So yes, the VGB does require you to make conscious lifestyle changes. There is no magic wand.
Realistically, if you’re unprepared to make any changes yourself, then there isn’t any weight loss program that’ll work for you.
e.g. If you expect to consume soft drink every day and eat family-sized bars of chocolate every evening and still lose weight, then stay on whatever fictional planet you’re on!
Because despite liking the theory of losing weight – deep, deep down you just aren’t ready to put it into practice.
A virtual gastric band works by the subconscious mind holding onto the firmly held belief that you have a gastric band fitted and that there is a major reduction in your stomach capacity. Importantly, because the psychological issues are also addressed, you will notice a completely different, much more positive mind-set and attitude towards food and your eating habits.
