Gut Directed Hypnotherapy
You may have thought that there is no help for the relief of IBS beyond medication and diet. The best kept secret in the long-term relief of the symptoms of IBS is Gut Directed or gut Specific Hypnotherapy.
In clinical trials 80% of patients reported a long-term improvement (over 5 years) in their IBS symptoms. This system of gut specific hypnotherapy treatment or gut directed hypnotherapy has been tried and tested for over 20 years now. It is recognised by N.I.C.E as the most effective therapy for the relief of IBS symptoms.
IBS is an inflammation of the gut and can be caused by many things including stress, anxiety, trauma, over use of antibiotics, food poisoning and gastroenteritis. The syndrome is ‘stress’ maintained which is where the use of hypnotherapy comes in.
Well over a quarter of the population in the UK will suffer from IBS symptoms at some time in their lives. In reality it is believed to be much higher because many sufferers are too embarrassed to talk to their Doctor.
The big problem with IBS is the wide variation of symptoms that a sufferer has to cope with. These symptoms vary from diarrhea to constipation depending on what they have consumed, to how much stress they are under and the menstrual cycle for women. Other symptoms of IBS include severe pain, muscle spasm, nausea, bloated, indigestion and headaches. Now add to this all the stress and anxiety IBS causes and you end up with a very debilitating problem.
Medication deals with only the symptoms of IBS. The symptoms can vary so much it can be almost impossible to get the balance right. Medication masks the true symptoms of IBS as well as causing long-term damage and having side effects.
If you are lucky and have a forward thinking Doctor you may be advised to look for a hypnotherapist who treats IBS using gut Directed hypnotherapy. It is well-known that the mind and the body are connected. Gut Directed hypnotherapy reduces the anxiety that IBS causes and can also reprocess the past traumas that maintain the anxiety.
The Gut directed hypnotherapy treatment includes 4 individual sessions of hypnotherapy. This program is accompanied by 5 self-hypnosis MP3 recordings that cement in the work done during the hypnosis sessions. Your commitment is to listen to 5 self-hypnosis recordings throughout the program and take responsibility for any dietary or eating patterns that may need adjusting.
