New York, NY (PRWEB) April 4, 2007
IBS patients, previously dependent on the drug Zelnorm for relief from symptoms experienced with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, will find hope, and help, in a system of self-hypnosis exercises developed and tested by Medical Hypnosis Educators Michael Ellner and Alan Barsky called Quantum Focusing®.
Now that Zelnorm has been taken off the U.S. market due to risk of heart attack, stroke, and chest pain, and effectively removed from universal access for folks who suffer from IBS, the authors of Quantum Focusing can breathe a sigh of relief. "We had a feeling Zelnorm was a bad idea for treating a condition that in many cases can be alleviated by using the self-hypnosis exercises in our simple book, without drugs or surgery," says Medical Hypnotist Alan Barsky, co-author of IBS Relief: Relieve Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
"Medications may be necessary for some, however, many people can find the relief they seek by reading our book and following its simple, step-by-step imagery and breathing exercises," adds co-author Michael Ellner, the internationally acclaimed Pain and MindBody Healthcare Educator, who developed the self-help system.
Hypnosis has been scientifically demonstrated to be helpful in reducing the symptoms of IBS and can improve the quality of life for the estimated 55 million Americans now living with this expensive, painful and very embarrassing condition, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDIDK).
And the cost! Compare the one time e-book purchase of $19.99 to the monthly cost of taking drugs with serious adverse effects. "Our protocol is designed to help people learn creative, new ways to manage and regulate their bodies' reactions to stress," the authors explain. "There is light at the end of the tunnel for the tens of millions of people living with IBS, and this simple self-help program is designed to help people take charge of their lives and their health."

*Quantum Focusing teaches people with IBS how to untie the knots in their stomachs. The technique for quieting the mind, developing coping skills, and maximizing imagery was developed by Ellner and illuminated in his earlier award-winning book Quantum Focus: The Quick, Mind-Powered Total Program for Self-Development, Healing and Happiness, co-written with Richard Jamison, PhD.
