Information about Hypnotherapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a chronic gastrointestinal disorder. Symptoms include the following:

Abdominal discomfort or pain (can be severe)
Disordered bowel habit (constipation/diarrhoea)
Bloating and distension of the gut

Other non intestinal manifestations can be as follows:

Affects mood, lifestyle, sex life, menstruation (women)
Urinary infections
Low back pain

Other issues that surround this syndrome are that people feel stigmatised and don’t like to admit that they have Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It is not life threatening but sufferers often feel hopeless due to the inadequacies of treatment available.

Causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

The causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) are many. There has been a great deal of research but no definite conclusions.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is still diagnosed on the basis of the exclusion of other medical problems. Disordered gut motility, gut sensitivity, gut inflammation, genetic, psychological and dietary factors may all play a part in the causation and maintenance of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Between 20-25% of the population report symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) at some point in their lives. Women seem to present more commonly with Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms than men. Hypnotherapy has proved to be very effective in helping to minimise the severity of Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms. The quality of life is improved, less time is taken off work and less doctors consultations are needed. The benefits are long term.

Hypnotherapy for IBS at our clinics is focussed on the gut and managing/controlling the symptoms.

The key components of the hypnotherapy programme are:

Creating calmness/peacefulness
The mind becoming stronger
On the road to recovery
Continued improvement
