Important news for type two diabetes and how hypnosis can help

Type Two Diabetes and how Hypnosis can help

I offer weight management courses for those classified obese and those who are yo yo dieters. Evidence seems to show that you can avoid type two diabetes with hypnotherapy weight management courses and, if you have it, improve and sometimes reverse the condition.

In the case of obesity I offer the Hypno Gastric Band which is extremely effective in losing weight without special dieting… see that page on the website

I republish recent findings below:

Diabetes ‘Cure’: Diet & Exercise Work for Some

After one year of regular sessions to encourage weight loss and physical activity, 11.5 percent of obese adults with Type 2 diabetes saw their condition at least partially reverse — meaning their blood sugar levels decreased to those of a prediabetic, without the need for medication. Just 2 percent of those who did not receive intensive counseling partially reversed their diabetes. After four years, the rate of partial diabetes remission in the counseling group declined slightly, to 7 percent.

Full remission — achieving normal blood sugar levels — was rarer, with just 1.3 percent of people in the counseling group and 0.1 percent in the non-counseling group meeting this goal after one year.

Type 2 diabetes has traditionally been seen as a progressive disease that is managed rather than cured. Recent studies have suggested it can be reversed with weight loss surgery, or by following an extreme diet that mimics surgery.

However, until this study, little was known about the rate of long-term diabetes reversal without surgery or extreme dieting.

The study confirms that complete Type 2 diabetes remission is rare, but that partial remission is an obtainable goal for some patients, the researchers said.

Experts said that, because the definitions of complete or partial diabetes remission are arbitrary, researchers should not focus on these measures. What’s more important is that patients improve their weight and blood sugar levels, as people in this study did, said Dr. Pieter Cohen, an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and a general internist at Cambridge Health Alliance.

“If the great majority of people are losing weight and their sugars are going down, whether or not we call that a remission…it’s great news,” said Cohen, who was not involved in the study. Although most patients in the study didn’t meet the strict criteria for remission, they are moving in the right direction, he said.

Diabetes ‘cure’

The study involved about 4,500 obese adults with Type diabetes ages 45 to 76, who were followed for four years.

Rates of remission were about 15 to 20 percent higher among those who lost substantial weight, improved fitness, had lower blood glucose levels at the study start, or had been diagnosed with diabetes more recently, compared to those who did not meet these criteria.
Diabetes and disease

It’s important to note that people in the study had been living with Type 2 diabetes for an average of five years before it began. If diabetes is detected early, and interventions started soon thereafter, Cohen said he would expect that more people could be “cured” with lifestyle changes.

The results might have been better if real fruits and vegetables had been provided, Cohen said.
So far, improving blood sugar levels has not been shown to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke in people with diabetes. Future studies will examine whether or not lowering blood sugar reduces rates of kidney and eye disease, Cohen said.

In an editorial accompanying the study, Dr. David Arterburn, of the Group Health Research Institute in Seattle, and Dr. Patrick O’Connor, of the HealthPartners Institute for Education and Research in Minneapolis, said the results underscore the need to prevent, rather than treat, diabetes.
“Prevention of diabetes and obesity should be a rallying cry for all clinicians who care about the health of the nation,” they wrote.

The study and editorial were published in the Dec. 19 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Pass it on: It’s possible to reverse diabetes with weight loss and exercise changes.

Is there an alternative approach for obesity and weight management?

An alternative approach for Obesity with Hypnotherapy

Weight Loss and Dealing with Obesity often isn’t about just losing weight but treating why you gained weight in the first place


Hypno Gastric Band is another way to treat obesity

I have been successfully treating many people for obesity for a number of years. There seems to be an idea that an operation and a real gastric band is the “only” approach when diets or slimming regimes have failed.Actually becoming an “intelligent eater” is more important than “points, sins or counting calories” – there is another approach of weight management that doesn’t mean when you stop the regime that you immediately put the weight back on. Time to stop yoyo dieting!

Obesity is treatable

Obesity is a serious problem reaching epidemic proportions in the UK and can lead to type 2 diabetes, osteoarthritis, heart conditions, cancer and other ill health. It is important to address WHY someone is overeating and treat the underlying causes – I have even seen people who had the Gastric Band fitted only to start trying to find ways around the system to address their need to comfort or binge eat or eat because of emotional reasons. The answer for me is to use hypnosis, neuro linguistic programming and hypnoanalysis to address the reasons for overeating and finally “fit” a hypno gastric band at the end of the four part course.

The course is very thorough and tailored to each individual with nutritional information supplied and motivation to eat less, manage weight and find some exercise that will work for an individual.

Have a look at my Hypno Gastric Band page and the genuine testimonials – it is possible to acheive weight loss and find a happier life with this system for as little as £260. A real Gastric Band can cost £8,000 or more.
