Hypnotherapy is now recognised by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence and in the wider medical profession as an effective, evidence-based therapy for the management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. It has been found to be at least as effective as the FODMAP diet for controlling symptoms.
In many cases hypnotherapy helps significantly reduce or even completely eliminate symptoms altogether, allowing sufferers to live a normal, comfortable life - free from the worry, stress and discomfort that IBS can bring.
How does it work?
Our brain and body are very closely linked - science is recognising this more and more, particularly in terms of the link between our brain, the gut, inflammation and our experience of discomfort and pain.
By reducing underlying stress and anxiety, solution focused hypnotherapy helps break the cycle of worry. This in turn calms down your physical response to stress - lowering inflammation, allowing your digestive system to work more calmly and efficiently and reducing your perception of discomfort.
This not only helps in the short-term - it gives you effective tools to manage IBS for life. Time to take back control.
