The figures showing how much money has been spent on weight loss surgery in Sheffield alone are alarming.

According to The Star, almost £700,000 of public money has been spent on weight loss surgery in Sheffield alone during 2012. Most procedures that have taken place using the government funded cash have been gastric band and bypass operations for obese adults. The figures come as a surprise considering the large amount of money that has been spent in one City alone. It is cash that could be used for other government services such as public libraries and public areas such as playgrounds.
It is suggested that obese and overweight people should try to lose weight via traditional methods as well as trying complementary methods such as hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy works to change the way the client feels about food and their weight and works towards tackling the root of unhealthy eating. The unique and new way to lose weight has helped thousands of    people to change the way they eat.

The National Council for Hypnotherapy is a UK based hypnotherapist directory which lists information and contact details of professional and qualified hypnotists throughout the British Isles who are capable of helping clients with a range of issues including habits such as smoking, dealing with anxiety and panic attacks and losing weight.

A spokesperson for the organisation added, ‘The figures showing how much money has been spent on weight loss surgery in Sheffield alone are alarming. We believe that it would be much more cost effective and rewarding to offer clients the chance to at least try hypnotherapy before they committed to having dangerous and expensive surgery.’
