Barry Sinclair Performs in Aid of Jack and Jill Foundation

Sunday, February 10, 2013

Last week I had the pleasure to perform at a show in the Osprey Hotel, Naas, Co. Kildare.

The show was organised by the Apple Green petrol stations and it was in aid of The Jack and Jill foundation. The show was a huge success and I was very proud and privileged to be a part of this wonderful event. The Jack and Jill do tremendous work for sick children around the country. Everyone had a great night of entertainment and fun with the proceeds going to Jack and Jill. It’s really interesting to realise that one can help so much even when having a great time. Yes helping can be fun.
I look forward to doing another show in the near future. My thanks to all those who took part and helped in so many ways. They made it an event that helped the Jack and Jill foundation raise a significant amount of money for these much loved children in their hour of need.

The teamwork and spirit of the voluntary workers tells me that the Jack and Jill Foundation will persist to help many future generations.

Woman Sheds Nearly 100 Pounds After Being Hypnotized Into Believing She Had a Gastric Band

Monday, November 19, 2012

A 46-year-old woman lost nearly 100 pounds after being hypnotized into believing she had been fitted with a gastric band. Janice Rogers had weighed an overwhelming 255 pounds and became desperate to find a solution.

Rogers had trawled the Internet looking for a solution to her problem, and when she looked up weight loss surgery she stumbled upon a website about a "virtual band" treatment that hypnotizes people into believing their stomach has shrunk in size, according to the Daily Mail.
While she had some initial reservations, she ultimately decided to give the "virtual band" treatment a try. She had paid £270 ($430) for a year's worth of sessions with a therapist called Andrew Nelson.
After the first treatment she immediately began losing weight. In just 7 months, she lost a staggering 154 pounds.
She said the treatment made her physically unable to eat unhealthy foods and she stopped eating junk food like chips and fried chicken. She even went on a two-week plan of just liquids.
She said in just the first week of treatment she lost 12 pounds, and has since stuck to a diet of salads, fruit, whole grains and lean, grilled meat.
"I had been overweight for 23 years, since the birth of my son, and tried everything to lose weight," she said, according to the UK paper. "I signed up for weekly weight loss classes but any weight I lost I would just put straight back on."
She said she even started going to Zumba classes with her friends, but nothing seemed to work.
"I knew I needed to do something about it so I logged onto the computer and looked up gastric bands without telling anyone," she said. "I was shocked with the amount of websites I found, but among them was Andrew's which mentioned a hypnotic band."
She said she didn't want to tell anybody because she felt "like a fool" but she was desperate to shed her pounds.
"When I first went I thought it would be a load of rubbish and I felt no different until I went home and tried to eat something but it felt like chewing carpet," she said. "I thought I had better look at the eating plan, which was just liquid for two weeks and then gradually worked up to solid food."
She said after years of eating a lot, she didn't think she could succeed in her diet so easily.
"After eating a lot over the years I didn't think I could do it but I found it so easy and never felt hungry at all," she explained. "The weight came off so fast and in my first week I dropped 12lbs. I still can't believe I have reached a size 12 (size 10 in US) and I sometimes do pick up my old size in the shops."
She said that her partner is really proud of her.
"The virtual gastric mind band is made up of cognitive behavioral therapy, neuro-linguistic programming, and mental preparation," Roger's therapist Andrew Nelson said, according to Daily Mail. "The treatment begins with an initial discussion where I ask people to visualize themselves as they want to be and we talk about healthy eating."
"People eat for a variety of different reasons and once we have realized the cause I then put them under hypnosis and reaffirm what we have talked about," Nelson said.

Mum loses 6.5st after hypnosis tricks her into thinking she has got a gastric band

Monday, November 19, 2012

A MUM lost a staggering 6.5 stone after being hypnotised into thinking she had been fitted with a GASTRIC BAND.

Janice Rodgers, 46, tipped the scales at 17st 7lbs when she researched weight loss surgery online and stumbled upon a website about a ‘virtual band’.
Although doubtful, she booked an appointment with the specialist behind the treatment that makes people believe their stomach has shrunk in size.
She came round after her first session thinking it was a waste of time. But just seven months later, she has trimmed down to 11st - after being physically unable to eat unhealthy foods.

Janice has gone from a size 22 to a size 12 and looks a completely different woman.
She put on weight after the birth of her son 23 years ago and struggled to lose it.
She joined Zumba dance classes to shift some pounds but became so out of breath she turned to the internet in desperate search of bariatric surgery.
She found Andrew Nelson’s website and paid £270 for a year’s worth of sessions with him.
She stopped eating junk food like crisps and fried chicken and embarked on a two week plan of just liquids, gradually introducing solid food over time.
Janice reached her goal of a size 12 thanks to the virtual gastric band and still listens to recordings of her sessions to stay motivated.
