A pain-free alternative to surgery

Published: 8 May 2012 10:30

GASTRIC band surgery is now widely used to help those with ongoing weight problems. During a complex surgical procedure a band is fitted around the stomach to make it smaller so that food intake is lessened. The results can be miraculous - TV personality Fern Britton is just one example.

Steve Bishop - a Master Hypnotic Consultant and Certified Master Practitioner and Trainer in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP).

However, gastric surgery can be a painful, invasive and expensive process that is usually only carried out on obese people. You may not be considering the gastric band as an option, but if you are disillusioned with jumping on and off the diet bandwagon, have tried every slimming pill or potion and still have not achieved the desired result, this may be a solution.

The Hypno-Band Weight Loss System is a revolutionary hypnotherapy treatment designed for people who desperately want to lose weight. It has all the results of gastric band surgery - you will eat smaller portions and feel full - yet it is completely safe and pain free. It will save money, not only on the cost of private surgery, but also on weekly food bills. Its success is already widely documented in the press and has most recently been covered in Channel 4's Embarrassing Fat Bodies.

Gastric band surgery costs many thousands of pounds, however Hypno-Band can save you money for a fraction of that price in the long run. The Hypno-Band system helps you to change your behaviour and lifestyle which in turn provides you with the ability to lose weight and stay that way.

Steve Bishop (pictured right) is a Master Hypnotic Consultant and Certified Master Practitioner and Trainer in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). He has been running his successful hypnotherapy clinic for 10 years and is now helping lots of people to shed the pounds.

Poetry competition is a grand slam for writers

POETRY is centuries older than the novel, but its popularity has waned. This could be changing. Is it the recognition that poetry, song lyrics and rap are all related that has sparked a new level of interest? Or, in these times of immediate communication, is it that the brevity of poems - being shorter and punchier than the novel - has helped them find a renewed popularity?

Like most people in a demanding job, a 10 hour day is not unusual and 'me time' is spent checking my to-do list - so escaping the confines of our office in west Reading and arriving in Theale for my first fly-fishing lesson, I immediately felt relaxed and the weight of hundreds of emails, phone calls and deadlines evaporated as I stepped into the tranquil grounds of Sportfish.
