Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Would You Like To Discover The Secret To Relieving Your (IBS) Symptoms?

Imagine what your life would feel like without the constant pain, pressure, diarrhea and uncertainty that comes from Irritable Bowel Syndrome. IBS is a common disorder worldwide, effecting 14-24% of all women and 5-19% of men. Individuals with IBS may struggle with various symptoms including constipation, nausea, vomiting, gas, bloating, soreness, or abdominal distention. IBS rules the lives of many patients and can be extremely debilitating. Most doctors attempt prescription drugs to battle IBS.

Amitriptyline, a drug normally used as an antidepressant, is one of the most widely prescribed medications for IBS.  Research has shown repeatedly that this medication is no more effective than placebo for relieving the symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome. (Bahar 2008).

Hypnotherapy is a natural, drug free alternative treatment that has proven to alleviate or even eliminate IBS. Hypnosis is a very powerful tool for pain and research has proven that it is a powerfully effective tool in permanently treating IBS.

Research Proves Hypnosis Offers Superior Treatment For Irritable Bowel Syndrome

A pioneering study conducted in 2007 of children and adolescents with IBS and Functional Abdominal Pain was done comparing hypnotherapy (HT) and standard medical therapy (SMT).  The (HT) Hypnotherapy group did far better both short-term and long-term. (Vlieger 2007).

Results: Pain scores decreased significantly in both groups: from baseline to 1 year follow-up, pain intensity scores decreased in the HT group from 13.5 to 1.3 and in the SMT group from 14.1 to 8.0. Pain frequency scores decreased from 13.5 to 1.1 in the HT group and from 14.4 to 9.3 in the SMT group. Hypnotherapy was highly superior, with a significantly greater reduction in pain scores compared with SMT (P < .001). At 1 year follow-up, successful treatment was accomplished in 85% of the HT group and only 25% of the SMT group (P < .001). (Vlieger 2007).

 

A follow up study was conducted using the same children 5 years later. The results found that Hypnotherapy was still highly superior to conventional therapy with 68% of the HT children were in remission versus only 20% of the SMT patients were in remission after treatment. (Vlieger 2013).

Medical hypnosis can also help improve a patient’s vomiting, constipation, and/or diarrhea.

In addition to pain and gut motility, hypnosis can help co-morbid features of both IBS and even Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), including coping behaviors, stress, sleep, depression, anxiety, and wellness. (Keefer 2013).
