What is the Difference Between Gastric Band Hypnotherapy and Lap Band Hypnotherapy?
People often get confused between Gastric Band Hypnotherapy and Lap Band Hypnotherapy.
Are they the same thing? And if they are, why aren’t they just called by one name?
Here’s the story: Lap Band is actually LapBand® – the name of the first product approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in America to be used for Gastric Band surgery. It is a product owned by a pharmaceutical company to perform the procedure of gastric banding.
Prior to gastric banding, many doctors performed a surgery known as Gastric Bypass. Instead of implanting an adjustable gastric band (LapBand®) to reduce stomach size, gastric bypass involves stapling the stomach and moving a part of the intestines to the small stomach pouch, so the patient can’t eat much and bypasses most of the stomach and small intestines where nutrients and calories are absorbed.
While this did help patients who were in imminent danger of serious health concerns from obesity, it was very invasive. These days, gastric band surgery is considered much safer and therefore preferable to gastric bypass, simply because the risks are lower and it doesn’t involve tampering with the body’s natural design.
At Accordhypno, we use the Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy System. Lap band hypnotherapy does not actually exist, because hypnotherapy does not require the use of the physical LapBand® product. What we are doing, is replicating the gastric band procedure virtually, which makes you feel as though you have had gastric band surgery, and allows you to achieve similar results.
The Virtual Gastric Band Hypnotherapy System was developed by Sheila Granger in the UK, and was first tested on a group of 25 people with outstanding results. Together, the group achieved an accumulated weight loss of 90kg in just over 3 weeks. Only 1 person in the whole trial did not lose weight.
I have been personally trained on Sheila Granger’s system, and given a license to use her system on my clients.
The system works by convincing your mind (through deep-state hypnotherapy) that you have had gastric band surgery and can no longer fit large amounts of food in your stomach. Your brain believes this, so when you go to eat a meal you will find yourself feeling fuller, faster. Eating less = less calories = more weight loss!
Gastric Band Hypnotherapy is definitely not a diet, and though you are encouraged to eat well and exercise regularly, it is not so much about what you eat but the amount you can eat. Because you believe your stomach is physically smaller, you won’t actually feel like eating much at all.
One of the best aspects of the system is that it usually produces the same results are surgery, but is 10x cheaper, safer and faster (i.e.: no need to wait on a hospital waiting list).
