Hypnotherapy and IBS

Uncomfortable and debilitating an estimated 10 to 20% of the population in the UK are suffering from IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome).

IBS can prevent people from carrying out simple tasks such as long car journeys, avoiding public transport, attending social events and causing discomfort on a regular basis.

Because of cultural taboo surrounding toilet habits it’s a subject that not many people want to discuss and so IBS not only creates physical discomfort but emotional too.

By messages between the brain and gut becoming disrupted this then creates issues within the digestive track leading to pain, bloating and bowel changes.  It is also known that high levels of stress increase symptoms further impacting the lives of those who suffer.

As well as medication cutting out dairy, gluten, spices, trying supplements can also be an option.  With IBS patients often struggling with a range of treatments, finding a consistently effective approach can be challenging.

There is growing evidence supporting the efficacy of hypnosis for patients suffering with IBS.  With solution focused hypnotherapy keeping up to date with the latest research in neuroscience its effectiveness against both standard and psychological treatments is potential as a go-to solution.

By the use of suggestion, imagery techniques and progressive relaxation hypnotherapy guides the client into a sense of calm soothing their symptoms restoring the gut brain communication and improving overall well-being.  The power of the mind is truly limitless.
