The National Council for Hypnotherapy has responded to news of a new weight loss regime which sees a patch sewn onto the tongue.


This drastic new weight loss measure sees a square of plastic mesh sewn into patients’ tongues which causes pain when eating solid food.

According to ABC News on August 1, this drastic new weight loss measure sees a square of plastic mesh sewn into patients’ tongues which causes pain when eating solid food. As part of the regime, patients follow a liquid diet of 800 calories per day and a 45 minutes exercise routine until the patch is removed after a month.

The procedure was introduced to the United States four years ago by Dr. Nikolas Chugay after he saw it in Latin America. He told ABC News that:

“It takes about 30 days to change a habit. That’s what we are doing. We are helping people to change habits.”

However, some members of the medical community have reacted negatively to the procedure. Commenting on the process, a specialist in weight loss, Dr. Rob Huizenga, told ABC News that:

“I think it’s a barbaric procedure.”

Studies have shown that those who lose weight quickly often regain the weight rapidly after stopping their diet plan. Many people have found that hypnotherapy can help them lose weight effectively.

The National Council for Hypnotherapy connects members of the general public with professional, skilled hypnotists throughout the UK who are qualified to help with a wide range of issues, including weight loss. A representative for the firm offered their thoughts:

“There are often new diets that people try in an attempt to lose weight, but an effective way to lose weight is thought to be the combination of a healthy diet and exercise. Sessions of hypnotherapy have also proven to be effective for many people in losing weight, helping to maintain the weight they have lost and continue a healthy lifestyle. Hypnotherapy helps you to identify why you eat, instead of eliminating particular foods and reducing calories, whilst helping you create techniques to manage your weight.”

NCH represents over 1800 hypnotherapy professionals within the UK and is committed to ensuring the highest possible professional standards amongst our members. Those looking for help with smoking, weight, anxiety, panic attacks, habits and phobias may be helped by local NCH accredited therapists, look for the NCH seal of approval on their websites. As one of the largest registers of independent Hypnotherapists, the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) is actively involved with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and strives to develop standards for the benefit of the profession, now and into the future.
