Hypnotherapy for IBS
Nothing takes the joy out of eating more than a digestive condition like IBS. No sooner have you savoured the taste of your favourite food, you begin to worry about how your body will react to it, which makes it difficult to relax, even in the comfort of your home. If you suffer from a condition such as IBS, you may be more prone to:
• Abdominal pain
• Diarrhoea, constipation, or periods of both
• Constantly feeling as if you need to open your bowels even if you’ve just been to the toilet
• Excessive wind
• Passing mucus through your bottom
• Opening bowels much more frequently
A Medical Conundrum
Doctors don’t know exactly what causes IBS, though strong links have been made between worsening IBS symptoms and psychosocial factors such as anxiety or stress. This means that while you might be biologically prone to gut and intestinal disorders, they flare up more when you are under more pressure. Many consultants across the world recommend hypnotherapy for effective relief from the symptoms.
Why Does Hypnotherapy Work For IBS Sufferers?
The brain is responsible for every message that is sent to your digestive system, including the ones that cause, pain and discomfort and stress. The reason hypnotherapy is so good at treating IBS is that it works with the brain while focussing on the gut. While there are currently are no medications that can cure the condition, hypnotherapy for IBS allows the sufferer to become familiar with how their brain works, so that when the symptoms start, they know how to tell their brain to calm them in a language that it responds to, and can try to address the problem before their IBS takes hold.
Hypnotherapy for IBS has a high success rate, giving many IBS sufferers the confidence to live their lives without fear of what their gut and bowels might do to make them feel uncomfortable. Patients who have used hypnotherapy to control their IBS report that they:
• Feel calmer and happier
• Find it easier and less painful to open their bowels
• Can manage their condition wherever they are
