Hypnotic Gastric Band News
The Mail On Sunday today publishes on a row about Paul Mckenna's new Hypnotic Gastric Band App. The app costs £4.99, and PM is said to claim that hypnosis represents a scientifically proven method of shedding pounds. But doctors are quoted as saying that he gives a false impression of the results they will see.
Dr. Carel Le Roux, a leading physician at London's Imperial College Obesity Service, is quoted as saying - "Hypnosis isn't powerful enough to be effective in the long term"
Regarding scientific proof, Yorkshire Media Limited published, in January 2004, the results of a survey of 4000 clients, receiving the Hypnotic Gastric Band over two years. The average weight loss was 24.64lbs
Effective Hypnosis is fortunate enough to have direct experience of people who have tried both PM's recordings and had advice from Dr. CLR. Both have been criticised as not treating people as individuals, with individual problems.
The Hypnotic Gastric Band can be effective, but it needs to be bespoke - tailored to the individual - so you need to physically go and see a hypnotherapist for sessions.
Effective Hypnosis runs a local service for weight loss, of which the Hypnotic Gastric Band is a part -not the whole. For information, please see www.effectivehypnosis.co.uk and some of the testimoials on this site.

The state of hypnosis is very like the state between waking and sleeping. There are various methods of getting you to this state. But once you are there - you are highly suggestible to positive suggestions....
