Hypnosis for IBS

Research has continually found that hypnotherapy helps by improving the primary symptoms of IBS.

associated with IBS suffered by many people with this condition, such as
feelings of nausea, constant fatigue, persistent backache, including
sleeping problems often brought about by the discomfort related to their

Hypnotherapy appears to offer symptomatic, psychological, and
physiological benefit. However it is important to understand that
hypnosis is not be regarded as a cure-all. But on the upside up to 75% of
all sufferers of IBS responded very well to Hypnosis many citing
significant improvements in as little as 2 or 3 hypnotherapy sessions after conventional approaches to treatment yielded no real change.

However in saying that, it is very important that you seek the help of your family GP before you engage in any other alternative treatment as
persistent and sustained IBS should never be ignored, this is to rule out
any previously undetected underlying medical condition.

That being said Hypnotherapy for IBS remains a credible intervention
where it has been identified that the individual suffering from the
condition may have the origins of their IBS rooted in deep emotional
distress. It is also important that lifestyle factors such as diet are also
taken into account when aiming to assist someone to recover from their
IBS symptoms and of course the question on most people’s lips would be
do the effects of hypnotherapy last after the client has completed the
recommended number of hypnosis treatments?
