Do you have a need to lose weight?
Fed up with paying for a gym and not going?
Thought about getting a Gastric band but too scared of Hospitals?
Look no further:
Nick and his Dr John are able to offer you a spiritual gastric band. Just like the gastric band that you can get from the hospital, the gastric band is placed around the upper part of the stomach to create a small pouch so it fits less food, which mean you feel fuller quicker and then lose weight.
Before having the gastric band you will need to fill out a form with your details and sign a consent form. You will then have your weight taken and in some cases measurements are also taken.
What’s the difference?
- There is no physical intrusion or danger to your body.
- Dr John has devised bands of different strengths that can be easily changed or replaced as you start to lose weight or if you feel nothing is happening.
- No need for an operation or to go under any anesthetic
Is it safe?
Absolutely safe even if you think the band has snapped, once it snaps it will dissolve.
Can I feel it?
Not normally, however you might feel the band being put in and at first it might feel a bit tight. What you should feel is less hungry.
How do I get one and what can I expect?
Book an appointment which will be for half hour. After you have filled out the form, you will lay on the therapy bed and Nick will place his hands on your stomach for about 10 minutes whilst Dr John fits the band.
Once you have the Gastric band fitted, it doesn’t stop there. You will get the full support of Nick and Dr. John for a year.
You will get a 20 minute appointment made 3 to 4 weeks apart where you will get weighed and measured if needed and also to discuss how you feel the band is doing. Doctor John will also check the band to make sure it’s still in place and working correctly.
What do I do now?
Well this is only going to work if you also help. So you need to look at your diet and make any necessary changes like cutting out sweets and fatty foods. If you don’t do any form of exercise then take up walking or some form of light exercise.
Please remember that on average, people that have a hospital fitted gastric band can take up to 2 years to lose between half to two thirds of their weight and this can be the same with this type of band.
