An alternative that deserves very serious consideration is the Gastric Mind Band Permanent Weight Loss Treatment (GMB). The GMB is billed as a safe, non-invasive alternative to the traditional surgical gastric band. However, it should also be noted that while the weight loss impact will be inline with the surgical alternative, it won’t have the same effect on your wallet. Indeed it will cost a fraction of the amount, with no surgical side effects, and achieve the same result. The price of the full GMB treatment at the Elite Clinic in Southern Spain, including all blood tests, full body analysis and therapy sessions including ongoing care and support is just £1495.00 which is a small price to pay in order to change your relationship with food.
