IBS, irritable bowel syndrome, effects 1 of every 7 adults. Relief is available based on the largest long-term study to date using hypnosis. Seven out of 10 patients reported an improvement in symptoms after treatment.
What is IBS?
IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) is a common disorder of the digestive system that leads to cramps and pain, gassiness, bloating, and changes in bowel habits. Many doctors believe there is a psychological component to IBS, in which stress, can lead to physical symptoms in the gut.
The exact cause of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is not known. For many years, doctors thought irritable bowel syndrome was mainly a condition of the mind. After all, these patients always had normal physical exams, and many said they noticed symptoms only during times of stress.
A new study shows hypnosis as an effective, long-term therapy for the poorly understood and hard-to-treat gastrointestinal disorder known as irritable bowel syndrome. In the largest long-term study of hypnotherapy for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) to date, seven out of 10 patients reported an improvement in symptoms after treatment.
Hypnosis for IBS Relief? "I'm a believer," says gastroenterologist Cynthia M. Yoshida, MD, director of the Women's GI Clinic at the Digestive Health Center of Excellence at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville.
At a meeting of the World Congress of Psychosomatic Medicine, gastroenterologist Peter Whorwell, MD, discussed more than 20 years of research showing hypnosis improves symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and can even alter the underlying physical problems that cause the symptoms.
Internationally recognized, NGH Board Certified Hypnotist and Certified Instructor Tom Nicoli has created a new hypnosis audio program for IBS relief. The success and effectiveness of his work was first witnessed on Dateline NBC and has been written about by Harvard Medical School Hypnosis Instructor, Jean Fain, LISCW when she rated Tom's hypnosis audio CD's for weight loss as "The best of the bunch" in Shape magazine.
