Have you considered a gastric band fitted through surgery?

Gastric band surgery is a procedure that many have heard about but do you completely understand how a gastric band functions?

The band device is placed around the upper portion of the stomach to create a small pouch which can hold about one half of a cup of food, normally your stomach would hold around 6 cups of food – allowing you to consume less food but feel fuller faster.

When the gastric band is full, a message is sent to your brain to inform you that you are no longer hungry and that your stomach is full, this assists you in feeling less hungry and allowing you to consume smaller portions of food.

Procedure   Surgical Gastric Band Gastric Mental Band(Hypnosis)
What is it? An adjustable silicone ring (band) is placed around the top part of the stomach to create a small pouch about the size of a golf ball.
  • Under hypnosis, your mind contracts a band of muscles around the upper part of your stomach!
  • You actually imagine and create the narrowing of your stomach wall.
  • The constriction and the pouch formed are similar to a physical lap band in behavior and effects on your stomach.
How does it work?
  • When food fills the pouch, the stomach signals “fullness.”
  • Food trickles slowly into main stomach.
  • Adjustable through saline injection or removal through tube with port below skin.
  • You sense fullness with very small portions.  Your hunger level is greatly reduced.
  • Adjustable through mental (hypnotic) suggestions.
  • Similar to physical band in sensation.
What is the weight loss?
  • 60% excess weight loss. (Other more drastic gastric surgeries are 60%-80%)
  • Requires the most effort of all gastric procedures to be successful.  (“Some of us learn how to “cheat” the mechanism!”,
    (words of a cheater)
  • Your sub-conscious mind is running your body!
  • Hypnosis-induced lap band is new to the US and recently successful in Europe.

  • Certain foods can get “stuck” if eaten (rice, bread, dense meats, nuts, popcorn) causing pain and vomiting.
  • No drinking any liquid with meals.  (Liquids flow through the pouch and wash the food out into larger stomach, defeating the fullness sensation, another method of “cheating”)
  • Your very small portions result in your calorie intake being less than your energy requirements, resulting in your weight loss.
