Gastric Banding Woodlands
To my Woodlands neighbors who feel they are overweight,
What would you give to be rid of the excessive weight that keeps you
down? What would it be worth to have more energy for your family,
your career, your life? What would it be worth to lose the excess weight
and the excess emotional baggage that goes with it?
It can be done. Make no mistake about that. You are reading this right
now because you know this.
Factors Contributing To Unhealthy Weight
Your weight and your health are results of many things: your genes,
your lifestyle, and even society plays a part. This is because you are
shaped in part by the genetic material provided by your parents, and in
part by the physical and social environment in which you live.
Your body is evolutionary. It is self-organizing and able to repair itself.
This is why taking action to help it get back to a more healthy weight is
so important. Just by taking a small action to help your body
understand what your goal is, you can start the recovery process
Why This Medical Doctor
Recommends Gastric Banding
As a medical doctor, the main reason I recommend a gastric banding
procedure to aid in weight loss is because it allows a more natural
process for your body. You did not become overweight in a day. It was a
process. The gastric banding procedure allows your body to lose weight
at a moderate and healthy pace. No trauma. No dramatic changes that
can cause long-term problems for your body.
The premise behind the gastric banding procedure is basically to
re-educate your stomach and your body on how much it needs to eat. A
band is placed around the entry to the stomach which creates a small
pouch at the top. This pouch is quickly filled each time you eat and it
allows food to be released from the top of your stomach to the bottom
in a slow manner. Because the top of the stomach fills quickly, it
notifies your body that “it is full.” As you now fell full much quicker
than before, you eat less and begin to lose weight at a normal and
healthy pace. To find out even more about gastric banding and the
