Free Yourself from IBS
Within the field of evidence-based medicine, hypnotherapy has been proven to be 70% effective in treating this condition
Irritable bowel syndrome is a common condition affecting one in four of the population, half of which have it so severe that it prevents them from working.
Hypnotherapy is non intrusive, safe, comfortable and a cost effective modality to complement mainstream medicine. Some in the profession would in this case argue it is ‘alternative’ treatment since the medical profession are generally at a loss with this condition. The job of the hypnotherapist is to help the client to control their gut rather than their gut control them.
As a specialist in this area, it is my understanding that sufferers have the need for understanding and an empathetic approach. Sufferers who consider hypnotherapy currently tend to do so as a ‘last resort’ rather than a first approach after diagnosis. The medical profession are becoming more aware of the benefits of hypnotherapy from a specialist in the field. As a clinical based practitioner, my hypnotherapy practice receives referrals from general practitioners, gastroenterologists and specialist gastro nurses.
Hypnotherapy can help
Researchers have found hypnosis to be a “cure” for the brain-gut dysfunction that underlies Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Just dealing with the symptoms of IBS is not enough, the individual has to learn to rebuild internal energy, many sufferers feel drained emotionally, life issues and responsibilities continue to deplete inner emotional strength, leading in some cases to anxiety or even some forms of depression.
Hypnotherapy, when conducted correctly can increase self-esteem, confidence, and allow the sufferer to begin a journey of self improvement and management, by changing negative thoughts and feelings for positive ones and thereby equip themselves emotionally to move away from the symptoms and thoughts of IBS. Hypnosis can also help physical ailments.
Hypnosis has been shown to be an effective treatment for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in a number of clinical studies
We use a combination of hypno-cognitive therapy and hypnoanalysis to find the cause and thereby eliminate the emotional effects. Hypnosis has been by approved by the American Medical Association as a valid medical treatment since 1958, though the concept of using a state of hypnosis to alleviate both physical and mental ills has recurred throughout the history of medicine from ancient times.
