Multi-Billion Dollar Weight Loss Industry Has No Reason to Want You to Lose Pounds and Keep them Off

Multi-Billion Dollar Weight Loss Industry Has No Reason to Want You to Lose Pounds and Keep them Off

Tom Nicoli, Hypnosis Weight Loss Expert

Boston, MA (PRWEB) September 12, 2007

The weight loss expert who made headlines on NBC’s Dateline when he used hypnosis to help a pastry chef lose weight for his high school reunion, is challenging the diet industry in America. Tom Nicoli, board certified hypnotist, life coach and weight loss expert, warns, “Diet programs, prepackaged diet meals, pills and other supposed weight loss aids are not designed to work long term. If they did, everyone who is overweight would use them, lose the extra pounds, and then the companies would go out of business because there would be no more fat Americans.”

There is a reason people keep losing weight only to gain it back, according to Nicoli who says the weight loss industry tries to get and keep as many people as possible riding the diet rollercoaster. He points out that diet companies are obviously not in business for the altruistic purpose of creating a leaner, healthier nation. Diet companies are corporations interested in making a profit, and to do this, Nicoli says, they must keep people coming back for more.

Tom Nicoli, described by Dr. Gordon Peacock Harper, Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, as an expert in his field, offers weight loss hypnosis as a safe and genuinely effective way to help people change poor habits and gain the motivation necessary to make beneficial lifestyle choices. Nicoli’s hypnosis CDs and weight loss hypnosis programs are the only method to receive a 5 of 5-star rating by Harvard Medical School hypnosis instructor, Jean Fain for Shape Magazine. Professor Fain said, “Tom Nicoli has created a dramatic, affordable and effective weight-loss CD set.”

Pills, deprivation diets, or cutting out carbohydrates while you feast on red meat and cheese, only has a possibility of working during the time the person is actually doing it, and as Nicoli points out, no one can stay on a diet or a diet drug indefinitely. Tom Nicoli blames the multi-billion dollar diet industry for luring people into the false hope that weight loss is something they can buy in a store. “People like the message that they can take a pill or drink a shake and the pounds will drop off. But it just doesn’t work that way.”

Tom Nicoli points out that the new weight loss pill, the first such drug ever approved by the Food and Drug Administration, bases its marketing on the message that weight loss begins in your digestive system not in your heart or brain. Nicoli takes the opposite position.

“Weight loss begins when people choose healthier lifestyles. When you eat healthful, balanced meals, get adequate exercise and sufficient rest, weight loss comes as a result. Making a lifestyle change is 100 percent based on your thoughts and your brain.” Tom Nicoli explains, “Resolve the personal issues that cause you to make poor food and exercise choices, and the weight loss takes care of itself.”

A published author and highly sought public speaker; Tom Nicoli is the founder of World Hypnotism Day. He first rose to national fame in 2004, when the Dateline feature, ‘The Ultimate Weight Loss Challenge,’ proved Nicoli’s weight loss hypnosis program to be highly effective in comparison with diets and plans that called for exercise or calorie cutting alone.

Although an ancient practice, hypnosis today is widely accepted by much of the mainstream medical community to treat stress, manage pain and reduce undesirable habits and behaviors such as overeating or lack of motivation to exercise. Tom Nicoli has assisted thousands of people in over 30 countries achieve and maintain weight loss or accomplish other life goals.

Birthing Industry Benefits from Radiohead Treatment

Birthing Industry Benefits from Radiohead Treatment

London, UK (PRWEB) June 21, 2008

‘Mom and pop’ duo, Heidi and Rob Woodgate are shaking up the birthing industry today by inviting customers to pay what they like for their birthing programme.

The experiment, which they described as ‘doing a Radiohead’, was announced on their blog, and runs until 30th June 2008.

The band Radiohead famously shook up the music industry in 2007 by offering their ‘Rainbows’ album on a similar ‘pay what you like’ basis.

Heidi and Rob, who are both experienced Hypnotherapists, offer a downloadable ‘home study’ birth preparation programme that helps women overcome their birth worries and fears so they can give birth feeling relaxed, confident and in control.

It also teaches self hypnosis, which studies indicate can make labour much shorter and less painful.

Research at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide, shows women using hypnosis reduced their need for analgesia by half, epidurals by 70 per cent, and were more than twice as likely to be satisfied with their pain management in labor compared with other women.

To fans of natural birth, their programme is near priceless. Those who are unsure whether anything can make giving birth less than a total horror story may only risk pennies.

Their programme is available from

Renegade Personal Trainer Slaps Plastic Surgery Industry in the Face With Controversial New Fitness Program

Renegade Personal Trainer Slaps Plastic Surgery Industry in the Face With Controversial New Fitness Program

Kelowna, BC (PRWEB) February 19, 2009

Released only hours ago at, this unique program includes solutions for all the problem areas that women fear most like sagging and flabby arms, muffin top, love handles, and more.

The first test subject for the Go Sleeveless System was a woman named Christine from British Columbia, Canada. After years of battling with morbid obesity and numerous health complications, at 59 years of age she had all but given up hope. With an approaching formal Gala in Paris, and the prospect of having to bare her arms in a sleeveless dress, Christine knew she had to do something drastic, and do it soon.

Instead of heading to the plastic surgeon’s office, she called Rylan Duggan, a fitness expert known as the ‘Problem Part Pro’. Rylan put Christine on his Go Sleeveless System, which included a cardiovascular and strength training program, a customizable nutrition program, and even a self-hypnosis and relaxation audio program.

Within only ten short days of starting the Go Sleeveless System, Christine had undergone a staggering transformation. The snug-fitting dress that she had purchased only days earlier for her trip to Paris, was now falling off of her.

Only a few short weeks later, Christine had eliminated her sagging arms, lost several inches and pounds, and regained her energy. Christine now states that people routinely comment that she looks 20 years younger.

The Go Sleeveless System that Christine used is also unique because it is the first fitness program ever to offer a money-back “Better Than Surgery” guarantee. A bold statement, but one that creator, Rylan Duggan, says he is perfectly comfortable offering.

“Women have been duped into thinking that there is nothing they can do about their aging body,” Rylan says. “They have been convinced by the plastic surgery and cosmetic industries that they are on an inevitable decline of added pounds, sagging skin, and wrinkles that can only be remedied or covered up by expensive potions and procedures. These are outright lies. I want women to know the truth: That they can reverse the ‘natural’ process of aging, and they can get plastic surgery-like results quickly, naturally, and inexpensively. It all really comes down to following a very simple formula and success is inevitable”.

Rylan has made his secret formula for eliminating all your stubborn problem parts – without the pain and cost of plastic surgery – available in a free E-book download offered for a very limited time at

Global Sleeping Pills Market to Reach US$9.0 billion by 2015, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

Global Sleeping Pills Market to Reach US$ 9.0 billion by 2015, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (Vocus) August 9, 2010

More than 55% of the US population is affected from symptoms of Insomnia, and close to 15% suffer from serious insomnia. Insomnia has become a major health issue the world over, and as a result, more and more people are seeking medical intervention for relief. The use of sleeping pills as a sleeping aid has become increasingly common, with about 10-20% of the global population currently using sleeping pills or tranquilizers to relieve Insomnia and other sleep disorders. Further, in contrast to the past, the use of sleeping pills is no longer confined to only the elderly. Sleep disorders are affecting individuals across all age groups, as indicated by the two-fold rise in number of people belonging to the 20-45 age group having used sleeping pills during the period 2000-2004.

A primary concern of sleeping pills is associated with their side effects of drowsiness the next day, drug dependency, and drug tolerance. As a result, unmet medical needs continue to exist in the market, as it awaits novel drugs with improved safety and efficacy profiles. These factors bode substantial opportunities for novel drugs with lower side effects. Besides safety concerns, the sleeping pills market is presently characterized by a weak pipeline, entry of generics after the patent expiry of Sanofi-Aventis’ Ambien (Zolpidem).

The US represents the largest market for sleeping pills globally, accounting for a share of more than 48%. The market for sleeping pills in the US has witnessed a steady growth, with the total number of prescriptions having reached 57.25 million in 2008. Europe has about 32,746 million people affected by Insomnia. Within Europe, France has the highest prevalence rate of people affected from sleeping disorders, with people in the age group of 50-59 being the most highly affected.

In terms of brands, the sleeping pills market is expected to witness several changes in the coming years. Non-benzodiazepines such as Ambien, Sonata, and Lunesta are the most prescribed pills, and are expected to remain the most preferred in near future, as stated by a new market research report on Sleeping Pills. The popularity of these brands is attributed to their lower risk of dependence, when compared to Benzodiazepines. However, the market share structure in terms of volume is expected to see some major changes. Patent expiry of Sanofi-Aventis’ leading sleeping pill- Ambien – in 2007 led to the entry of generic versions for this drug, altering the market landscape of sleeping pills. The market has also seen the emergence of a new class of drugs, Melatonin Receptor Agonist Hypnotics, which acts on Melatonin receptors in the brain. Rozerem is one such drug, which is claimed to be devoid of the risk of drug dependency.

Major players profiled in the report include Sanofi-Aventis, Sepracor, King Pharmaceuticals, H. Lundbeck A/S, Takeda Pharmaceutical Company, Actelion Pharmaceuticals, Apotex Inc., Abbott Laboratories, Neurocrine Biosciences, Transcept Pharmaceuticals Inc., Aurobindo Pharma Ltd., Caraco Pharmaceutical Laboratories Ltd., Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Limited, Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd., Roxane Laboratories Inc., Sandoz International GmbH, Somaxon Pharmaceuticals Inc., Synthon BV, among others.

The report titled “Sleeping Pills: A Global Strategic Business Report” announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc., provides a strategic review of the sleeping pills market, major brands available worldwide, current market trends, growth drivers, patent expiry of Ambien and other noteworthy brands, safety concerns related to the side effects of sleeping pills, pipeline analysis, FDA approvals, critical insights on product classes (Benzodiazipines, non-benzodiazipines, melatonin receptor agonist hypnotic), glimpse into the OTC market, and profiles of prescription as well as generic players. The report analyzes market data and analytics in terms of value sales for geographic markets – United States and Rest of the World.
