Hypnosis has been recognized as an effective method for dealing with Irritable Bowel. One of the first studies of hypnotherapy for IBS was conducted by Dr Peter Whorwell, a leading expert on IBS and hypnotherapy in the UK. A trial he conducted in the 1980s found that a group of IBS sufferers who had failed to respond to other treatments showed dramatic improvements when treated with gut-directed hypnotherapy. An excellent online resource for IBS is IBSHypnosis.com
Hypnotherapy offers to sufferers of IBS a drug-free solution to symptoms of diarrhea, constipation, stomach pain and bloating. In “gut directed hypnotherapy” we take the general techniques of hypnotherapy and apply them directly to the abdominal pain and digestive symptoms which IBS sufferers struggle with.
