There has been news reports recently in the media about the link between obesity and cancer.  Obesity has been linked to several cancers, including; breast, colorectal, esophageal, gallbladder, kidney, liver, pancreatic, and uterine cancer.  It is estimated that 4=8% of cancers are attributed to obesity. Being obese also increases the risk of dying from cancer and can influence treatment choices as well.

Indeed, being overweight and obese are the second biggest cause of cancer in the UK, causing more than 1 in 20 cancer cases.  The risk is increased more by being more overweight and being overweight for longer.  Fat cells increase inflammation, growth factors and extra hormones which cause cells in our body to divide more often and increases the risk of cancer cells being made.

It is estimated that around a quarter of adults in the UK are obese.  Hypnotherapy can help you get to your ideal weight by overcoming the issues that have led to you being obese.  These include; emotional eating, eating too quickly, eating disorders, and eating too much of the wrong types of food.

For people wanting to lose several stone, a virtual gastric band can be very beneficial.  The virtual gastric band does not involve surgery, but rather tricks the mind into thinking that an actual gastric band has been fitted around the top of the stomach.  Thus, the stomach feels fuller quicker and therefore lose weight.

There is research evidence that the virtual gastric band is every bit as effective as an actual gastric band in helping people lose weight.  The advantageous of having the virtual gastric band is that it does not contain the risks of major surgery or cost thousands of pounds.  So why wait any longer, let hypnotherapy help you reach the weight you want and reduce your chances of getting cancer.
