Society likes quick fixes. Bariatric surgery may seem to offer a quick fix to those who are obese. Dr Max Pemberton, writing in the Daily Mail, shows that he is dubious about the quick fix of a gastric band. He points out that it may not deal with underlying emotional and psychological problems. If they are using food as an emotional crutch and overeat as a way of dulling their pain – then surgery will not help. 20% of those that have arranged surgery for them have gone back to overeating.
Hypnotherapy may provide an answer. It can help with body dysmorphic disorder and provide a hypnotic gastric band, whilst dealing with inner pain.
Effective Hypnosis can’t wave a magic wand, but it can help you to get to the place you want to be.
