Science Daily wrote the following report on IBS on December 18th:
Can hypnotherapy help with IBS? It’s a question I’m often asked. The answer is ‘yes’. I’ve worked with a great many people with the condition and if you’re suffering, too, then I could help you as well.
‘Studies at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, show that psychological treatment using hypnosis may offer effective, lasting relief. The studies are part of a thesis which concludes that hypnotherapy should be used in clinical care of patients with severe IBS.’
‘We have four different studies showing that hypnotherapy helps treat IBS, even when the treatment is not provided by highly specialized hypnotherapy centers.
The treatment improves gastrointestinal symptoms and quality of life, and patient satisfaction is very high. The method also makes efficient use of health care resources,” says Perjohan Lindfors, doctoral student at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg.’
The research shows hypnotherapy to be an effective treatment for IBS and it is, as consequence, approved by NICE. NICE is the organisation which judges and approves treatments as being worthy of use by the NHS. It’s favour is notoriously hard to earn.
It therefore feels quite safe to state that hypnotherapy has been shown to be able to help people with both the symptoms and causes of IBS. You could hope to be free of the problem, once and for all.
Wouldn’t that be worth the time, cost and effort?
Hypnotherapy is effective in treating IBS.
I have used hypnotherapy in Reading, London, Oxford, Wallingford and Thame in order to help people resolve IBS. It does work and I’m always amazed and gratified to hear of how much people’s lives have been positively influenced as a result. That research supports my work in this field is an added bonus.
Science has never quite pinned down the cause of IBS. This is, perhaps, because IBS is the name for a cluster of different conditions which present in different ways and which merely share their home within the gut. Stress and other factors are likely to combine in different ways and thus present in various forms.
Stress is a common factor in the cause of IBS
One thing is, however, quite clear: the medical profession believes stress to be a common factor in the causation of IBS or – at the very least – understands that stress can greatly aggravate the condition.
There’s no real scientific measure of stress (it’s a very subjective term) and so it’s difficult to prove that one unquantifiable condition can be the major cause of another condition.
However, when you get stressed you know that your heartbeat becomes faster.
It’s nothing revolutionary to hear that many people feel their hands becoming clammy.
Many people notice their throat constricting.
Anxiety has physical symptoms. We all know that. Its hardly a great leap of faith to imagine that it can affect digestion and the gut too.
IBS is commonly caused by stress. Resolve the stress and the problem will disappear. You can stop becoming stressed by the symptoms too. Cut the vicious circle and be free!
What kind of stress are you suffering?
Nonetheless, clients with IBS commonly report that their doctors have suggested stress to be a factor in their IBS. Could it be the case with you? If so then help is at hand. I have helped many people overcome IBS in Reading, Oxford, Wallingford and Thame. I could help you too. Give me a call, email me, and we’ll discuss how it works.
Hypnotherapy is thus NICE approved for IBS treatment
If you would like to be rid of your IBS then please give me a call and we can discuss how I can help. Please be sure, however, to have consulted your GP first. I can’t see clients with medical conditions unless they have first consulted with a doctor.
Your mind can exert a good degree of control over your body. If you don’t believe this then close your eyes and breathe deeply. Picture a scene in your life when you have been excited and do your best to recapture every detail of that experience.
Relive it! You will note that your heart rate increases simply through having recalled that scene. A little adrenaline will have been released too.
Imagine, then, what a persistent degree of stress can do to your body. IBS may be your body’s signal that it is time to make changes to your life and to your way of looking at yourself and the world around you.
Your body is talking to you through IBS. You can listen and hope to find an answer to its calls or you can ignore them and continue to suffer. What’s your choice?
Hypnotherapy could help you to be free of IBS. The NHS and NICE agree.
I can help you learn how. I can help you learn how to exert control over your gut. It sounds strange, I know (I was once a sceptic too), but it works. It could work for you too. How much do you really want to be rid of it?
I look forward to hearing from you.
