IBS is an extremely common condition and many sufferers have sought medical help yet continue to suffer. Diet and lifestyle changes are very effective ways to address and manage IBS and I can advise on this. However hypnotherapy is increasingly being recognised – even among the medical professions – as being highly effective at managing and alleviating IBS symptoms. Research studies carried out at the University of Manchester (under Professor Peter Whorwell) have shown hypnotherapy treatment for IBS to have a success rate of 70% – and this is amongst patients who have previously found little or no relief from drug intervention or other medical treatments. If you suffer from IBS or any of its associated conditions – digestive problems, abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, diarrhoea – hypnotherapy can help you to manage both the physical and emotional aspects of your problem and to get your mind and body working in sync.
