We Can Show You How To Control Your Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Did you know? the government bodies – N.I.C.E (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) and the B.M.A recommend hypnotherapy to alleviate IBS symptoms. Even some NHS departments are now set up just for Hypnosis for IBS.

This goes to show that hypnotherapy is useful enough for treating IBS for the NHS to pay for its use as such. This is not the case all over the country though- not yet.

What Is IBS?

IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) is an umbrella term used to describe a digestive disorder with many different symptoms.It often means they dont really know whats wrong with your stomach!

It used to be more commonly known as ‘nervous stomach’ or ‘spastic colon’. It is quite common and can affect men and women equally. hypnosis for ibs

Pain, poor bowel movements (can be constipation or diarrhoea) cramps and bloating

(distention) are just some of the symptoms that you may experience with IBS.

You may experience several of these symptoms and the discomfort and pain associated with it can not only cause you major inconvenience it can affect the day to day running of your life.

Your doctor may tell you that there is no cure for IBS but do not worry. There have been many clinical trials regarding hypnosis for IBS and they have consistently shown that hypnosis can be effectively used to treat this condition, so that it can be much easier to live with and cause far less problems.

What causes IBS?

There may be many contributing factors to IBS, one of which may be a severe gut infection. There may also be the chance of some distortion of the signals sent to the brain from the gut area.

I have noticed with my clients that most often, one of the key elements of IBS (whether you realise it or not) is stress. Stress can be a major factor in the underlying symptoms of IBS, having many different effects on the body but particularly in gut disorders.

We have all experienced the butterflies in our tummy feeling which can be felt at times of worry, or even times when we are happy. This is because the gut is full of nerve endings and lack of blood flow to this area can help us feel that sensation at times.

Hypnosis is very effective at controlling stress levels, and hypnotherapy has been proven to alleviate these types of problems enormously. One of the elements of using hypnosis for IBS is to ensure that blood flows freely around the whole gut arera.

If you can imagine an engine not receiving petrol enough to burn fuel properly then you can see that if the gut does not have enough blood flowing around all the tiny capillaries, then it cant function properly.

IBS Treatment

IBS Although there is no ‘cure’ there  could be a general reduction in your symptoms associated with IBS so hypnosis could help you get this  under more control.

One of the key things to note is that there are complicating circumstances such as not being able to socialise as much – even by helping with this, and reducing the anxiety sufferers may exhibit can give a better solution than at present.
