Hypnotherapy and IBS

 A customer of ours was kind enough to write a testimonial about how the symptoms of her Irritable Bowel Syndrome had cleared up with our help.

IBS is a condition that people may feel very embarrassed about due to the symptoms, so it may remain hidden or not consulted on, but it is very real, and is  thought to affect about eight million people in the United Kingdom.

 The symptoms can  be ranging from abdominl pain and discomfort, to  abdominal contractions spasms or cramps, diarrhoea, constipation, bloating, nausea, vomiting and indigestion.

 Hypnotherapy can help by helping people to relax, easing the stress related triggers, and teaching powerful creative visualisation techniques to imagine relief for the symptoms. The mind takes the imagined relief on as real, programming in a new positive reaction to stress.

NICE clinical guidelines -

 " Recommendation : referral for psychological interventions ( CBT, hypnotherapy, and/or psychological therapy ) should be considored for people with IBS who do not respond to pharmacological treatments after twelve months "

 Researchers have found between 80 and 90% success rates with hypnotherapy -

" IBS is ideal for treatment with hypnosis, as there is no structural damage to the body. during the hypnosis sufferers learn how to influence and gain control of their gut function, and then seem to be able to change the way their brain modulates their gut activity " - Peter Whorwell of Manchester University

 " Hypnotherapy is the most powerful psychological therapy for IBS " - Ronald Valorie, Editor of Frontline Gut.
