Irritable Bowel Syndrome

If you are suffering IBS, you may experience any of these sypmtoms:


IBS can seriously affect your emotional, social and physical well-being.

IBS is a dysfunction of a part of the gut. However, in IBS cases, even when all parts of the gut are examined under a microscope, they look normal and healthy. It is twice as common in women as in men and up to 1 in 5 people in the UK can develop this at some stage in their life.

IBS could be a result of over-activity of the nerves or muscles of the gut, it could be a result of intolerance to certain foods, it could be the result of the presence of bacteria or a virus in the gut.

IBS is often connected with anxiety and stress. It is well known that our digestive function is affected by our emotional state. Digestion is one of the 'unconscious' actions your body carries out every day.

Hypnotherapy has proven to be be highly successful in treating IBS. I will look at you 'holistically', meaning the 'whole of you', which means your mind and your body. We will need to establish what foods you eat and when and we will need to explore your lifestyle, your thoughts and attitudes. Using powerful visualisation techniques developed by Dr. Peter Whorwell, you can be made more aware of your bodily functions.

More and more GPs now recommend hypnotherapy as a treatment for IBS. In one study, hypnotherapy had proved to help 71% of sufferers. You may find the article below interesting:
