A West Yorkshire head teacher lost almost six stones and beat diabetes, after being hypnotised into believing she had a gastric band fitted. Kaye Linley, 59, was 22 stones when she signed up for treatment in Spain reported Ananova.com. The treatment involved her being put ‘under’ and talked through every step of the medical procedure as if she were in an operating theatre. She was told her stomach was the size of a golf ball and that her stomach would feel full if she tried to eat anything other than small portions of food. Within five months, her weight fell to 17 stones, she dropped five dress sizes and her diabetes completely disappeared.
