Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that affects the large intestine. Not only is it a painful and restrictive condition, it can affect self-confidence and can lead to anxiety issues.
Only a small number of people with IBS have severe signs and symptoms. Some people can control their symptoms by managing diet, lifestyle and stress. Hypnosis is very effective at getting to the emotional causes of dis-ease and removing them. Hypnosis is also excellent for managing stress and trauma.
IBS symptoms vary from person to person. Some common symptoms are:
Abdominal pain, cramping or bloating that is typically relieved or partially relieved by passing a bowel movement
Diarrhoea or constipation — sometimes alternating between both
Hypnosis can help to find the cause of the condition then work with the unconscious mind to release and heal. Everyone is different, so your condition may be triggered by stress or worry. We can work on the underlying causes so that the symptoms fall away.
Many doctors recommend hypnosis and counselling to lessen the symptoms of IBS and to help people live with freedom. Living with this condition can really restrict a person’s choices and confidence, secondary symptoms that hypnosis is also good for. Hypnotherapy for IBS can be very successful if used in conjunction with orthodox medical treatments.
