IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome is one of the most common digestive complaints in the UK today. It is estimated between five and eight million people in the UK suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome.Symptoms can include abdominal pain, bloating, and sometimes diarrhoea or constipation and can greatly affect quality of life.
The exact cause of IBS remians unknown, but specialists theorize it may be in the way the brain communicates with the intestinal tract, causing it to move too slow or too fast. Studies have shown a correlation between IBS, anxiety and stress, in which one will often aggravate the other, though they are not known to be direct causes. However, most experts now agree that this condition is closely linked to emotional factors.
Hypnotherapy is quickly becoming recognised as the most effective treatment for severe IBS. The pioneering research of NHS consultant Dr Peter Whorwell in the UK has demonstrated that treatment of IBS with hypnotherapy can have an excellent success rate, even in cases where all other forms of therapy have failed. Dr Whorwell's work has shown that impovement using hypnotherapy continues long term.
Here at Mind Solutions Hypnotherapy, I have designed an IBS Hypnotherapy programme which provides a quick and effective way of relieving the effects of IBS. Using a combination of visualisation, powerful suggestions, stress control techniques and deep relaxation, in just a few one hour sessions the reduction of anxiety and the ability to cope with discomfort can be achieved. Hypnotherapy has become recognised as arguably the most effective way of treating IBS with a large majority of clients either experiencing substantial reduction or the complete elimination of symptoms.
The number of session required will be determined by the severity of the condition, however as this will treat overall anxiety and stress levels, this is usually between 6-12 sessions on a once weekly basis.
