Weight Loss Clinical Trial

IH_banner 2

Inspire Hypnotherapy has conducted a weight loss clinical trial for Gastric Band Hypnotherapy. We have assisted women and men who wanted to lose weight. This was performed by Jeremy Walker, at Inspire Hypnotherapy’s office in Wavell Heights QLD.

The weight loss clinical trial was conducted over a 3 month period, measuring results after 4 weeks and 3 months. The process involves; hypnotherapy, coaching, online resources, nutritional information and ongoing support. Participants experience feeling full from less food and feeling more satisfied.

The ‘actual’ Gastric Band is a surgical procedure designed to help people lose weight. This method of weight loss has well documented risks and downsides, including; infection, slipping bands and a long recovery time. These downsides are all avoided with the gastric band by hypnotherapy.

This clinical trial used the Virtual Gastric Band program to help participants lose weight successfully. The weight loss on average was just under 1/2kg per week, which is considered safe by most medical professionals. Weight loss by hypnotherapy helps you gain a healthy relationship with food and eliminate cravings for unhealthy foods.
