‘I just had to write and thank you for your help with my IBS. Each week the symptoms gradually eased…’
It is said that one in five people suffer from IBS to a greater or lesser extent at some point in their life.
Before you contact us for help, it is important that you have had your medical condition with regard to your symptoms checked by your GP. Make sure IBS is the medical diagnosis. Hypnotherapy has become recognised as arguably the most effective way providing help with IBS. Many clients either experience substantial reduction or complete elimination of symptoms. There isnt usually much scientific research with regard to hypnosis. Fortunately in this case there is. Check out the work of Professor Peter Whorwell of Manchester University – Link here
How will you help me to get rid of Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
We use direct, straightforward hypnosis combined with basic NLP techniques to provide help with IBS. This is not the ‘let’s go back into the past and find where the IBS came from’ type of hypnotherapy. It is a combination of powerful suggestions delivered both directly and indirectly to your unconscious mind. Certain forms of visualisation are also often useful to treat IBS as are certain simple specific relaxation techniques. In our experience, it is usually a combination of the above that gets the best results most rapidly.
Help with IBS. Pain control and IBS
In cases where the client is already in significant discomfort then the focus initially is on pain control/pain reduction. For more information go to the pain control page by clicking here - PAIN CONTROL
IBS and anxiety
Anxiety often goes hand in hand with irritable bowel syndrome. Quite often the client is anxious ‘about’ the symptoms of Irritable bowel syndrome. Ironically, the more anxious they are the more they suffer from IBS. Often, by significantly reducing anxiety, the problems of IBS simply fade away. When the client is ‘anxious’, treatment for the anxiety is given simultaneously with treatment for the IBS. For more information on the treatment of anxiety click here - ANXIETY
Help with IBS - Frequently asked questions.
- What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
Most people with IBS know all about it although it may be new to some of you. Quite simply, ‘Irritable Bowel Syndrome’ is a label given to a set of symptoms. These symptoms are usually pain and/or discomfort in the abdomen together with constipation or diarrhoea (or both). The other most common problems are excessive gas and/or bloating. Other symptoms may sometimes include fatigue, lower back pain, acid stomach/heartburn, headaches and nausea. These symptoms range in severity from mild and infrequent to regular and debilitating.
- Who gets irritable bowel syndrome?
We have worked with people in age range from 15 to 75 for this and have seen slightly more women than men. It is said that worldwide the division is 70% women, 30% men.
- What causes irritable bowel Syndrome?
You may well have already looked up IBS in a medical dictionary and been dismayed to discover that the medical profession does not know the cause of irritable bowel syndrome, although it is slightly comforting to learn that it is not considered to be a life threatening problem. There is, however, a mass of ‘circumstantial’ evidence that suggests that stress and anxiety are major factors. Some people have found that by experimenting with their intake of food and drink they have reduced or eliminated IBS symptoms. Typical foods and drinks that are worth experimenting include tea, coffee, alcohol, spicy food and beans. Raw fruit and certain vegetables have a worsening affect for some people. However they can improve the situation for others. Drinking a couple of litres of water a day is always a good idea, a diet that is high in fibre is almost always beneficial.
- How long will it take?
By utilising this combination of hypnotherapy and NLP we find that the average number of sessions ranges from 2 – 4, usually taken at seven day intervals.
