Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) a common disorder that affects the large intestine and, commonly causes cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhoea and constipation.
IBS is a chronic condition that needs to be managed long term.
People who have been diagnosed with IBS, may have been given certain dietary advice, perhaps been put on certain medication or maybe been told that ‘talking therapies’ can help with the symptoms. IBS can be debilitating and might even cause serious discomfort on a regular basis.
However, hypnotherapy can help break the cycle of pain and anxiety related to IBS, and has done so for thousands of people.
Hypnotherapy is now acknowledged within the wider medical profession as an evidenced-based therapy that can help reduce the symptoms of IBS, and sometimes alleviate those symptoms entirely.
The link between thought, emotion, and gut function has led to a considerable body of research into the effectiveness of hypnotherapy in the management and improvement of IBS which shows that not only does hypnotherapy lead to an improvement in symptoms, but it also helps people improve their confidence, self-esteem, and mood, with long-lasting effects
