With the rise of diabetes and other weight related diseases in America, many people are searching for the right program to effectively help them to lose weight and keep it off. Many people have tried the appetitie suppression, low carb and low calorie diets, losing weight fast and then gaining more weight than they lost back within a year. Others have experienced side effects with drugs such as Phetermine, commonly prescribed by Medical weight loss clinics.
Lap Band Surgery became another option but many people suffered from complications, even death.
A study from 2011 that sought to determine the long term efficacy and safety of gastric banding for morbid obesity revealed shocking results. The study looked at 82 patients who had undergone gastric banding between 1994 and 1997:
40% of patients experienced serious complications following surgery
An additional 22% had minor complications;
60% needed subsequent surgery
1 in 6 opted to have gastric bypass
Several years ago, the "Virtual Lap Band" was introduced in Europe and has been gaining widespread popularity as the safest option to losing weight with zero risk. You can eat what you want, you are simply going to eat less of it because your stomach is going to feel smaller and you are going to get fuller faster.
This hypnosis based program takes clients through what they believe is a real gastric band procedure with the sounds and smells of an operating room, but the entire time they are sitting in a chair, under hypnosis. Client's lose weight because they subconsciously feel as if they have been through the surgery and have a smaller stomach as a result of it. This enables them to eat whatever they like, but they eat much less of it.
One of the foremost teachers of this procedure worldwide, Sheila Granger, has compiled information from a collective group of hypnotists that she trained and has published the results of ongoing treatments.
Number of people treated with Virtual Lap Band hypnosis: 2732
Total aggregate weight lost: 59,315 lbs with averages out to about 21 pounds per person.
Notable Quality of LIfe Improvements:
Blood Pressure: 31 people
Blood Sugar: 28 people
Change of Medicine: 23 people
Increased Energy: 10 people
Many clients have experienced more self esteem, happiness, loss of anxiety, sleep improvement, reversal of diabetes, increased mobility, and the list goes on.
Lake Mary hypnotist Ken Marino read about this program a few years ago and decided to fly to the UK and train directly under Sheila Granger. Ken was initially skepticle about how a client sitting in a chair would would believe that a virtual gastric band was placed inside them, but he soon realized that the client is consciously aware that there is no band inside them, but their subconscious accepts the hypnotic suggestion of a band being placed inside them and responds accordingly.
Ken has since expanded on the program and incorporated other weight loss techniques from the masters in the study of hypnosis so that he can tailor each and every session to the individual. Word is spreadly quickly all over Orlando about the success of this program and Ken is in the process of writing a book about it.
What everybody loves about the program is that they can eat whatever they want. No food weighing or measuring, no books, points or charts and no prescription medication is needed. Clients don't feel as if they are being punished , they eat what they love, only they eat less and feel full. Clients are reportedly continuing to lose weight long after the program ended.
The virtual gastric band technique has given Ken a lot of satisfaction and has sprouted many other positive results along with weight management. Having clients that stated "I lost 20 pounds and I feel good about myself" or "My husband lost 18 pounds and is no longer afraid of the ocean" or "I lost 19 pounds and seem to handle stress better".
Clients of HLC Wellness are elated with the results of the program. Some of their comments are listed below:
Cathy Byler, a client of HLC Wellness stated "I have tried 100s of different ways to lose weight. All were just short term results. Virtual Lap Band talks to the inner you, the real you. This makes or allows you to get real with yourself. To be honest with you. Only you can make these changes and only you can allow these changes to take place. You are comfortable with you and will not allow any outside forces to interfere with what you are comfortable with. I now have a new awareness of me and a new ability to now do what ever I want today always putting me first because I am important. I will continue taking care of me first and always."
Amanda H, another client writes "I discovered your clinic while searching the internet for more information on Gastric Bypass. Trying lots of different diets and medical weight loss, I felt like that was my last option. I'm so glad I found your website and Kenny. I decided to give a call and try one last option before surgery. I have been on the program for 6 weeks and lost 19 lbs, I have the tools to continue my weight loss and feel great. Kenny' sessions were just what I needed and saved me from surgery. I have struggled with self control from emotional eating and have gained my control back. Thanks for everything HLC + Kenny"
Luis Negron, a former client, stated "I am a former patient of your clinic and it was the best thing to happen to me. I did the laser treatment and also the hypnosis therapy and it works great. I have lost close to 20 pounds in the process of hypnotherapy. It is a painless way of undergoing a lap band surgery. Kenny was great he has the patience of a saint. I will admit when I first started I was skeptical about the process but now I’m a believer. I recommend this process to anyone willing to give it a try. It’s a great procedure that helps motivate individuals to lose weight. Thank you for the motivation and the help your treatment has given me."
The positive results that are being reported with new hypnosis techniques are amazing but the Virtual Lap Band will be around and constantly improving for a long, long time. The Virtual Lap Band treatment was recently featured on the Doctor Oz Show.
