Hypnotherapy is a powerful treatment which aims at relaxing and so targeting the subconscious mind to replace negative habits and patterns with positive ones.

AVAILABLE SOON:  GASTRIC BAND HYPNOTHERAPY – at last the long-term solution to losing weight and keeping it off! 

Put simply: the only way to lose weight is to eat less.  This is why gastric band hypnotherapy is popular and effective for weight loss.  It reprograms the mind so that you eat less, convincing the subconscious that you have undergone gastric band surgery.  This means that your mind craves less food and feels fuller sooner.  Each individual’s issues with food are also addressed thereby identifying the reasons and behaviours to food and over eating.

Insulin is a hormone produced by the beta cells within the pancreas. Insulin is released into the blood stream and travels throughout the body. It is an important hormone that has many actions within the body. Most of the actions of insulin are directed at metabolism (control) of carbohydrates, fats (lipids), and proteins. Insulin also is important in regulating the cells of the body including their growth.

Insulin resistance is a condition in which the cells of the body become resistant to the effects of insulin, that is, the normal response to a given amount of insulin is reduced. As a result, higher levels of insulin are needed in order for insulin to have its effects.

Causes

There are probably several causes of insulin resistance and there is thought to be a strong inherited component. Some medications can lead to insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is seen often in the following conditions:

  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Oestrogen
  • Menopause and the years thereafter
  • The Pill
  • HRT
  • Obesity
  • Pregnancy
  • Infection or severe illness
  • Stress
  • Steroid use

A combination of raw vitamins, minerals and amino acids mixed daily with some fruit juice not only ensures the insulin response works at its optimum level, but also boosts energy and assists with weight loss. And, it’s not too disgusting to drink either!
