Malaysia is the most obese nation in Southeast Asia. Take a look around you. Fast food chains, fried food vendors and junk food stalls are everywhere. It’s no wonder that so many people are becoming ‘conveniently’ obese.
Obesity may not be a new phenomena in the world but it is certainly the most urgent pandemic around the globe, so much so that there is a term “globesity” that can be found in dictionaries. Obesity, simply put is when you have so much excess body fat in your system that it poses a health threat to you. It has been linked to several serious medical conditions including: diabetes; cancer; gout; gallbladder disease; gallstones; osteoarthritis; high blood pressure; heart disease and stroke; and breathing problems such as sleep apnea and asthma.
It is not only a question of aesthetics but of well-being. So, how do we achieve this?
What is Hypno-Band Therapy?
Hypno-Band is a procedure that originated from the United Kingdom. It is the world-renowned treatment that has been practiced successfully in UK, USA and Australia. It presents a safer and healthier alternative to a gastric bypass surgery. Hyno-Band was introduced in Malaysia in the last few years, and is available at The Mind Faculty.
This approach concentrates on the most important fat-loss organ: our brain. Too often we focus on our body – burning fats and achieving muscle tone. However, conditioning your mind for change is an important step to dropping off all that weight.
How does it work?
The Hypno-Band System is a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and hypnotherapy techniques that help you explore, analyse and change your eating habits as well as your lifestyle. Then, using the mind/body connection, a "virtual gastric band" is fitted over your stomach. This makes you eat less and feel full faster. This behaviour changing method is non-invasive: there is no surgery involved. (And there are less jumping jacks involved as well!)
In fact, many clients say Hypno-Band is a relaxing procedure. It is safe and there are no negative side effects associated with this procedure. The only downside is that you will have to invest in a new wardrobe because you’ll be dropping a few dress sizes.
The Hypno-Band procedure uses hypnosis as the primary tool to train your mind to lose weight and embrace your new body image. During the sessions, I will help to condition your subconscious mind to live healthy, eat healthy and maintain the body image that is healthy. It works on a strong mind- body relationship. I am sure that you have heard of people going back to their normal obese self after losing weight because they are not ready to acknowledge the change or are still emotionally disturbed. Believe it or not, the most important aspect of losing weight is to think that you can lose weight!
Through this process, not only will you lose body weight but it can also help you shed emotional baggage. You will be able to accept and celebrate a healthier, fitter and happier you!
Is Hypno-Band suitable for me?
Hypno-Band is suitable for those who want to lose weight and are committed to achieving their goals. No weight loss system will work unless you are committed to losing weight. As with most thing, the key to success lies in your own hands. The only exception would be if there is a psychological reason for your weight problems or if you are taking certain medications.
Whatever weight-loss method that you decide on, please ensure that your hypnotherapist, beautician or personal trainer is fully-qualified to help you achieve your goals. You will not only invest time and money into your weight-loss journey, but your health and your future. If you have an questions, please do not hesitate to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org)
