Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

After all the pain, disability, embarrassment, and trials of different medications and diets, there is finally a way to take control of your gut. It is a combination of hypnosis and psychotherapy.

We don’t know the cause of IBS, but it is often set off by a big meal, eating certain foods, and stress. Something has happened in the brain’s coordination of different gut functions that result in the symptoms.

Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) are often temporarily relieved by having a bowel movement.

  • Chronic and persistent abdominal pain
  • Constipation alternating with diarrhea
  • Mucus in the stool
  • Gassiness
  • Abdominal bloating, or the sensation of feeling full
  • Abdominal distention or swelling
  • The urge to move your bowels without being able to have a bowel movement
  • Nausea

Psychotherapy will reduce stress, including chronic stress you may not even know you have. The experience of hypnosis itself is very relaxing and pleasant. It further relieves stress and gives you access to taking control of your gut using your unconscious mind to re-regulate and coordinate your gut functions.
