Using hypnotherapy for IBS is a recommended form of treatment for anyone suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Clinical research has proven that hypnotherapy is an effective Treatment for IBS, using cause and effect to find the root cause and suggestion therapy to help alleviate the symptoms. Research carried out at the Withingshaw Hospital in Manchester, of more than 200 IBS sufferers showed that one hour of hypnotherapy a week for up to 12 weeks had helped sufferers with their symptoms. 71% said bloating and pain were reduced, and this effect lasted for up to 6 years. Hypnotherapy is now considered to be one of the most successful forms of treatment for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) as there is no structural damage to the body. During hypnotherapy, sufferers will learn how to relax and gain control of their gut function. Indeed it has been found that the response rate to treatment is 80% better in most published research to date. Hypnotherapy is a relaxing and enjoyable experience which uses the healing power of the client's own mind. As we know the gut wall is linked to the nervous system, so it is thought that the physical symptoms of IBS can be influenced by therapies that reduce stress such as Hypnotherapy and CBT. Hypnotherapy can help you take back control of your gut function and overcome the unpleasant and painful symptoms of IBS.
In England the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) IBS guidelines released in February 2008 recommend hypnotherapy for IBS treatment when drug options have not been beneficial after 12 months usage.
Stress and IBS
When you are feeling stressed or tense, i.e upset, angry or swamped by every day problems this can play and important part with the symptoms of IBS. There is evidence that people who suffer from this complaint have an increased sensitivity within the gut to external stimuli such as stressful situations i.e. family problems, work, stress, exams, negative thoughts which trigger many of the symptoms of this complaint. People who have a nervous disposition may find that they cannot control their symptoms. The relationship between mind, brain, nervous impulses and the gut is complex, the colon has nerves that connect to the brain it is controlled by the automatic nervous system which responds to stress and it is these nerves that control the normal contractions of the colon and causes the discomfort that you feel in your tummy during these stressful times. How many times have you said to yourself I have a "nervy tummy" or I have butterflies in my tummy" perhaps when we are about to undertake something stressful like an exam, driving test, interview or when we have to do something unpleasant or are under pressure. You see the colon is responding to these nervous thoughts regarding the stresses and conflicts you are undergoing, which then makes your mind more aware of these nervy sensations that occur in the colon.
