Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Hypnosis is incredibly powerful at eliminating the symptoms of IBS. By using the subconscious mind you use the part of the mind which controls all the systems of the body.  In this way  you help the body to heal.

IBS is one of the most common problems in the digestive tract.  IBS causes abnormal changes in the way the gut works but does not actually change the structure of the bowel.  It is a syndrome and not a disease therefore it is not cured.  The symptoms can last for years, but are often intermittent.

IBS is diagnosed by a physician using the “Rome III Criteria”. You will also be tested to exclude other diagnoses like cancer and Crohn’s Disease. It is important to cover all the possible causes of your symptoms.  Typically this will include a colonoscopy and possible other types of scans.

Hypnosis is a scientifically proven method to reduce symptoms in IBS sufferers. The clinical studies have shown that hypnosis reduces symptoms of IBS by 80%.  Since this is a lifelong condition and can recur with stress so it’s important to have ways to cope better with stress. To eat a healthy diet and to exercise are two ways to decrease toxic load on the body and help it cope better with life.

  • Hypnosis reduces symptoms in those who have had no results with other methods.(examples: Whorwell et al., 1984, 1987; Palsson et al., 1997, 2000).
  • It is an extremely comfortable form of therapy.
  • Hypnosis is safe and effective with no negative side effects.
  • Treatment with hypnosis often improves other problems like migraine and tension headaches along with improving symptoms of IBS.
  • Hypnosis also lasts.  After using hypnosis for IBS most people will have long term benefits.

I have found that most people will need a series of sessions to get and maintain the desired result.  We will work on you becoming more in control of daily stress and to relax and heal the bowel.  Each session builds on the one before.

The results can be amazing. If you have IBS and are tired of suffering with this terrible condition call me now at 770-560-4861
