Is a Bariatric procedure your last hope?
Opting to have a Bariatric procedure has
saved countless lives, and offers a last hope for over 100 thousand

should only be considered when all other means of losing weight have
failed. There is risk... and having the procedure will change your life

There are often medical reasons for obesity, however in most cases
the reason is not complicated. If we consume more calories than we
burn as fuel, our perfect human machine elects to store it. The
"fault" isn't all our own... over the last 2 decades, volume
producers and mechanized farming has substituted much of the normal
nutrition in our foods for chemicals and empty fillers. Thus, in
order to get the nutrition that we crave, we have to consume garbage
that has no value except caloric. In other words, the deck is
stacked against us... and growing up, we all heard about the
starving children in some country that doesn't even exist anymore
(guess they all starved), but ever since then, if it's put in front
of us, we were trained to eat it, and the average meal in a
restaurant should feed a family of 2 or 3.

Most bariatric procedures involve
relatively extensive surgery to decrease the size of the stomach. In
this way, the amount patients are able to eat before becoming full is
dramatically reduced and their appetite is diminished. There are several
surgical options available, and each offers different advantages
depending on the needs of individual patients
The NEWEST Procedures is not performed by
a Surgeon... and there is no surgery involved. A Gasterologist puts you
into a dreamlike state, making you completely unaware that a balloon is
slipped down your esophagus and fastened into your stomach. Fifteen
minutes later, you're wondering when the procedures is going to happen,
and later than day, you're on your way home.
This Balloon procedures is so new that
only a hand-full of Physicians and Hospitals are offering it around the
world. The FDA approval process for something like this in the USA can
take many years.
The GOOD NEWS... it IS available in Hospital Punta
