Can hypnosis help Irritable Bowel Syndrome and does it really work for everyone?
Many of our clients find hypnotherapy for IBS symptoms can be most effective, although it is not always the best option for everyone.
You can learn some simple tips to help with IBS symptoms below.
Hypnotherapy For IBS Symptoms?
Clinical Hypnotherapy, in a number of clinical trials, has been shown to be an effective treatment to help with symptoms of IBS, also known as Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Before proceeding with any therapy to help with IBS symptoms it is worth looking at the possible causes of your Irritable Bowel Syndrome and then looking at the best possible ways forward to reduce your symptoms.
IBS Symptoms, the first thing to consider?
Research shows that the symptoms of IBS can be reduced or removed by using clinical hypnotherapy. These symptoms may include pain, nausea, fatigue, backache, and urinary problems.
The first thing to ask yourself is, what makes my IBS symptoms worse?
We strongly suggest keeping a journal and making a note of when your IBS symptoms get worse and when they get better?
Looking for patterns in changes is really important. Ask yourself
- Which foods & drinks change my IBS symptoms?
- How does my mood effect IBS Symptoms?
- What makes my symptoms better?
- What makes my symptoms worse?
- How does sleep affect IBS symptoms?
- Do I often feel stressed or anxious?
- When am I IBS symptom-free?
- How do my IBS pain levels vary over time?
Becoming aware of the answers to these questions may surprise you. It is quite normal to just put up with your IBS symptoms and just battle through your day. Once you start to question your symptoms, moods and diet, things really can start to change for the better.
Hypnotherapy For IBS Symptoms – Hypnosis Can Help.
Hypnotherapy and NLP can really help with many issues and often IBS symptoms can be linked to Anxiety, Stress and emotional issues. We will also look at your diet, nutrition and lifestyle.
Anxiety and stress are common trigger factors for many health problems or simply they make existing IBS symptoms worse.
Reducing or removing stress levels can quickly help your IBS symptoms and helps natural healing.
Self-Hypnosis & Relaxation Techniques For IBS Symptoms.
Learning to control your mental state is very important. We know how we think and feel can really affect the whole body, making such a difference to your digestive and immune system. As part of our service, we teach you effective Self-Hypnosis techniques, allowing you to relax on demand and then create feelings of calm, strength and relaxation.
Self-Hypnosis is also a very effective tool for controlling pain caused by IBS symptoms and to control anxiety and stress that can really make it worse.
Will Hypnosis Work For Everyone With IBS Symptoms?
Hypnosis for Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms will work for most people although there are some people it will not help.
Firstly we will conduct a free telephone consultation and asses your IBS symptoms and how willing you are to change your lifestyle, diet and habits. In order to take control of your IBS, you may need to practice some personalised hypnotic exercises on a daily basis and make a few changes. If you are unwilling to make improvements then hypnosis is not for you.
During this phone consultation, we will asses your IBS symptoms and lifestyle. We can then look at the best way forward and you can then decide if you are ready to take control of your irritable bowel syndrome and it’s symptoms.
What Are The Symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
The symptoms of IBS can vary from person to person although the NHS state that typical IBS symptoms include
- stomach pain or cramps – usually worse after eating and better after doing a poo
- bloating – your tummy may feel uncomfortably full and swollen
- diarrhoea – you may have a watery poo and sometimes need to poo suddenly
- constipation – you may strain when pooing and feel like you can’t empty your bowels fully
- flatulence – regular wind
- passing mucus – from your bottom
- poor energy – tiredness and a lack of energy
- nausea – feeling sick
- a backache
- problems urinating – needing to pee often, sudden urges to pee, and feeling like you can’t fully empty your bladder
- incontinence – not always being able to control when you need to go to the toilet
Can Diet & Lifestyle Help IBS Symptoms?
Poor diet & lifestyle choices can really make IBS symptoms worse. Quite often your body is sending you a message that things need to change. Eating processed foods, foods high in fat and sugar can cause IBS problems as can stress and anxiety.
Sometimes we find food intolerances and allergies can cause IBS symptoms and we can easily arrange these tests for you. Missing vital nutrients and lack of exercise can also cause issues. Thankfully hypnosis and NLP can help with changes, cravings and give you the reasons needed to improve your lifestyle.
Is Hypnotherapy For IBS Free On The NHS?
Although the NHS recognise that hypnosis can help people with IBS symptoms, they do not offer hypnotherapy as a treatment. We believe they should offer hypnotherapy as it is very effective and often a final solution to IBS problems.
Many of our clients have tried NHS treatments for their IBS and decided to look at something more effective or discover what is causing their IBS symptoms. Clinical hypnotherapy can often be a fast treatment for IBS symptom relief in a short period of time.

More Questions And Answers – IBS
Is There An IBS Diet?
Yes, there are plenty of IBS diets and you may find that they vary widely. As mentioned before it is important to look at the reason for your IBS. It could be an anxiety, stress or emotional issue. If so we need to address that first before making dietary changes.
It may be certain foods cause a reaction, allergy or intolerance that causes your IBS symptoms. If so we need to look at these and see if we can work around the food or cut it out.
Gut flora may also be an issue. This is very common with the overuse of antibiotics and usually simple to put right. We do work with a number of dietary specialists, nutritionists and other therapists when required.
Can Medicines & Drugs Cause IBS Symptoms?
Yes, sometimes they can. Certain ingredients can cause reactions that may set off or make IBS symptoms worse. Again we can look at this, arrange tests if required and work with your Dr as needed.
How Do I Check If I Have Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
Your doctor will usually do this for you by asking questions about your symptoms, look at any changes that have happened lately and possibly conduct a physical exam. It is important to have your IBS symptoms checked as early as possible in case there is a physical health problem.
Usually, clients come to us when they decide they do not want to control their IBS problems using drugs or when the drugs are not helping symptoms.
Can Irritable Bowel Syndrome By Inherited?
There is some debate about this question. It is more likely you will suffer from IBS if your parents did. This does not mean it is generic and could just be related to family lifestyle habits. In many cases, Irritable Bowel Syndrome can be improved by changing lifestyle factors and removing stress and anxiety.
Simple Changes Can Make A Difference.
Simple changes really help many clients including cleaning up the diet, adding missing nutrients and increase exercise levels.
